Excellent preparation for the Australian Open, which takes place a week later, the Sydney International tournament allows players to get a sense of their level after a few weeks break in the tennis calendar. It's a chance for players to acquire all important playing time in this competition week in the middle of summer. The playing conditions are ideal before the first Grand Slam of the season.
Players like Lleyton Hewitt, Roger Federer, Gilles Simon or Pete Sampras have won here over the years.
