This year's Australian Open attendance record. Organizers said the tournament, which began on January 16 and ended on January 29, had more than 9 lakh visitors. This is a record in the history of Grand Slam tennis. Despite not playing all the big stars this time and the rain hampered the Australian Open, the audience was captivated.

A record 839,192 fans gathered at Melbourne Park for the three-week tournament. The previous record was at the Australian Open. The 2020 tournament Australian Open was watched by 812,174 viewers. This year's tournament broke that record.

Attendance was not as good in 2021 and 2022 due to restrictions due to the Covid pandemic. In 2021, the Australian Open was watched by 130 thousand 374 spectators. Last year attendance was 3 lakh 46 thousand 468 people.

Novak Djokovic, who missed the Australian Open last year due to not taking the Covid vaccine, has become the champion this time. The Serbian equaled Rafael Nadal's men's singles record for most Grand Slam titles by defeating Stefan Tsitsipas in the final.

Last year Wimbledon's main stage attendance was 515 thousand 164 people. 6 lakh 13 thousand 500 spectators attended the French Open and 7 lakh 76 thousand 120 spectators attended the US Open.

However, 60,000 spectators watched the qualifying round of the Australian Open in Melbourne. According to the report of the news agency Reuters, the total number of spectators present at the Australian Open this time was 9 lacks 2 thousand 312 people.

This time, Serena Williams, Roger Federer, and last year's women's singles champion Ashley Barty did not play in the Australian Open. This time, the Australian Open also set a new record for the highest attendance in one day.

On January 21, the number of visitors was 94 thousand 854 people. The previous record was held at the Australian Open in 2020. That tournament had the highest single-day attendance of 93,709.
