How to watch the 2021 Australian Open tennis tournament live

Here's how to watch the year's opening tennis grand slam on TV or online.

The 2021 tennis season is here and, like so many other sports, it has a different look due to the coronavirus pandemic. Still, after intense quarantine periods, the very best players from the ATP and WTA Tours are ready for the Australian Open.

On the men’s side, world No.1 Novak Djokovic is back to defend his title. Rafael Nadal and last year’s beaten finalist Dominic Thiem lead the contingent trying to dethrone him. Sadly Roger Federer couldn’t make the trip due to injury.

Australia’s Ash Barty will again be under immense home-town pressure. The top-ranked Aussie would love nothing more than to add her home title to her 2019 French Open crown. Standing in Barty’s way will be a raft of top prospects, including Serena Williams, who is still searching for a record-equalling 24th grand slam title.

But enough with the talking, let’s get to the watching. Where can you live stream the Australian Open?
