One of the biggest tournaments on the international tennis calendar kicks off today – The Australian Open. Will Novak Djokovic do it again for the 4th time or will there be an upset victory from one of the other contenders?
Here at PlayHugeLottos.com we are used to big things from Australia. Oz Lotto’s recent AUD$112 million jackpot bears testimony to this! And with a top 2012 jackpot of AUD$51 million Oz Powerball is no slouch either.
When it comes to prize money the Australian Open is up there with the biggest of the Oz lottery games. In 2013 there is a record amount of prize money up for grabs totalling AUD$30 million.
Prize money for the Men’s and Women’s singles tournament is distributed equally with the winner of each receiving approximately GBP £1,588,000.00 (€1,920,000.00 or USD$2,560,000.00).
Since 1905 the Australian Open has been thrilling tennis audiences around the world. Fan attendance at the Melbourne courts is second only to crowd size at the US Open. 2013 is set to continue the tradition of exciting tennis matches between the world’s best players.
With day 1 of the tournament already under way tennis fans are wondering who will take home the tournament trophy this year.
Top tournament contenders (Men’s)
Djokovic (defending champion)
Federer (looking for his 5th title)
Top tournament contenders (Women’s)

Sharapova (2012 runner-up)
As usual PlayHugeLottos.com likes being involved in the excitement of big sporting events like the Australian Open. So we want to sweeten the deal for any tennis fans out there.
