Australian Open
The AUSTRALIAN OPEN is a major tennis tournament held annually over the last fortnight of January in Melbourne , Australia. First held in 1905, the tournament is chronologically the first of the four Grand Slam tennis events of the year – the other three being the French Open , Wimbledon and the US Open . It features men's and women's singles; men's, women's and mixed doubles and junior's championships; as well as wheelchair, legends and exhibition events. Prior to 1988 the tournament had been played on grass courts, but since then two types of hardcourt surfaces have been used at Melbourne Park – green coloured Rebound Ace up to 2007 and, afterwards, blue Plexicushion . The Australian Open typically has high attendances, rivalling and occasionally exceeding the US Open. The tournament holds the record for the highest attendance at a Grand Slam event

Australasian Athletics Championships
The AUSTRALASIAN ATHLETICS CHAMPIONSHIPS was an athletics competition between male athletes principally from Australia and New Zealand that was held between 1893 and 1927. They were the precursor to the national Australian Athletics Championships , which replaced the competition from 1930 onwards. The competition emerged from an inter-colonial athletics event in 1890 between New South Wales , Victoria , Queensland and New Zealand before becoming a formalised event. This marked a progression towards organised sports competition among the emerging colonial regions in the British Empire and occurred at the same time as the Sheffield Shield cricket developed into a formal regional tournament. An Australasian Championships in tennis for the colonies was established in 1905 and would later become the Australian Open . During the same period, athletics organisers of the region began to cooperate more and the Amateur Athletic Union of Australasia (AAUA) was established in 1897
