Australian Open

Since the turn of the century, every January/February has been Australian Open season for me. My love of the sporting event has grown over the years, and since XBOP blogging began in 2014, the following summarises all my writings. In a large way, the data analytic opportunities that the nature of the Glam Slam tournament offers makes it irresistible for me to not enjoy it from that perspective too.

The following list summarises all articles blogged on the topic of the Australian Open, ordered by year. It also includes a summary of the tournaments and a record of my attendance experience.

A number of resources have become part of my “kit” in analysing Australian Open data:
