Australian Open Trivia Questions

1. What world #1 Spanish player, going into the tournament, was forced to withdraw from the 2023 Australian Open because of a leg injury?

From Quiz
2023 Australian Open

Answer: Carlos Alcaraz

Carlos Alcaraz was born in El Palmar, Spain in 2003. After Alcaraz won the US Open in 2022, he set a record as the youngest world #1 at just 19 years of age. Alcaraz's withdrawal from the 2023 Australian Open due to a hamstring injury dropped his ranking to #2 as the champion, Novak Djokovic, reclaimed the world #1 ranking.

2. Which 2021 men's champion was unable to defend his title in 2022?

From Quiz The 2022 Australian Open

Answer: Novak Djokovic

Neither Federer nor Wawrinka played in 2022 as both were injured. Murray did take part in 2022, having received a wild card, but was knocked out in the second round. Djokovic was the title holder, having won his ninth Australian title in 2021. Having been given permission to take part, Djokovic had arrived in Australia but ran into immediate difficulties over his visa since he was not vaccinated against Covid-19. After some legal arguments, the government revoked his visa and Djokovic was deported.

Kokkinakis and Kyrgios had to be given a wild card to enter the event and their victory was the first win for wild card entries since the open era began. Soon dubbed the 'Special Ks', Thanasi and Nick had previously won the Wimbledon boys' title in 2013, so their eventual victory shouldn't have been a complete shock.

From Quiz Australian Open 2012

The three other Grand Slam events (Wimbledon, US Open and French Open) allowed professionals to contest their tournaments in the previous year. Prior to this, professional players were not allowed to play on the traditional circuit. However, even with the ban lifted, some professional players did not play in the Australian Open during the 1970s due to comparatively poor prize money.
