The first tournaments of the Australasian Championships suffered from the competition of the other Australasian tournaments. Before , all Australian states, and New Zealand, had their own championships; the first being organised in in Melbourne and called the Championship of the Colony of Victoria later the Championship of Victoria.
Brookes took part once and won in , and Wilding entered and won the competition twice and Their meetings in the Victorian Championships or at Wimbledon helped to determine the best Australasian players.
Even when the Australasian Championships were held in Hastings, New Zealand, in , Wilding, though three times Wimbledon champion, did not come back to his home country.
It was a recurring problem for all players of the era. Brookes went to Europe only three times, where he reached the Wimbledon Challenge Round once and then won Wimbledon twice.
Beginning in , when the first Australian Open was held on the Milton Courts at Brisbane, the tournament was open to all players, including professionals who were not allowed to play the traditional circuit.
The tournament was won by Arthur Ashe. Wilander won the singles title  and both his Davis Cup singles rubbers in the Swedish loss to Australia at Kooyong shortly after.
In the tournament was first held at Flinders Park later renamed Melbourne Park. In , after being used for 20 years, the Rebound Ace was replaced by a cushioned, medium-paced,  acrylic surface known as Plexicushion Prestige.
The main benefits of the new surface are better consistency and less retention of heat because of a thinner top layer.
The change was controversial because of the new surface's similarity to DecoTurf , the surface used by the US Open. Before the Melbourne Park stadium era, tournament dates fluctuated as well, in particular in the early years because of the climate of each site or exceptional events.
For example, the tournament was held in January the tournament was played in March and the tournament in Brisbane took place in August when the weather was not too hot and wet.
From to , the tournament was played in mid-December. Then it was decided to move the next tournament to mid-January January , which meant no tournament was organized in Since , the Australian Open date has not changed.
Some top players, including Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal , have said in the past that the tournament is held too soon after the Christmas and New Year holidays, and expressed a desire to consider shifting the tournament to February.
New South Wales and overseas authorities proposed becoming the new hosts of the tournament in , though such a move never materialised. Notably a retractable roof was placed over Margaret Court Arena, making the Open the first of the four Grand Slams to have retractable rooves available on three of their main courts.
In December , tournament organisers announced the Australian Open would follow the examples set by Wimbledon and the US Open and introduce tie-breaks in the final sets of men's and women's singles matches.
Unlike Wimbledon and the US Open, which initiate conventional tie-breaks at games and games respectively, the Australian Open utilises a first to 10 points breaker at 6 games all.
In , the tournament organisers decided to replace the official court manufacturer to GreenSet , though retained the iconic blue cushioned acrylic hardcourt.
From to , the Seven Network served as the host broadcaster of the Australian Open. In March , it was announced that the Nine Network had acquired the rights to the tournament beginning in , for a period of five years.
The network later bought the rights for the tournament as well. In Europe the tournament is broadcast on Eurosport. In the United Kingdom, the BBC dropped its live coverage of the tournament just a month before the start due to budget cuts, leaving Eurosport as the exclusive live broadcaster.
It is broadcast on TSN in Canada. The following record of attendance begins in , when the tournament moved from being held in December to in January the immediate preceding tournament was December The prize money awarded in the men's and women's singles tournaments is distributed equally.
