List of Australian Open winners

Wondering who has won the most? Who won last year? Here's every Australian Open winner and runner-up.

Last updated:

The Australian Open has never dished up too many surprises when it comes to the men's winner. Dating all the way back to 2004, there have only been 5 different winners. It's really just a three-man party with the highly ranked Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer winning all of those but two.

Djokovic especially knows what it takes to win taking out 6 of the last 10 tournaments. The Serb loves playing in Melbourne and could very well add yet another big paycheque and Norman Brookes trophy. Also pour one out for poor Andy Murray. The Brit has finished runner-up five times and it seems his window to win is now firmly closed.

Women's tennis is a little more volatile. While one name on the list sticks out, Serena Williams, elsewhere there's a lot more variation. You've got to go all the way back to 1978 to find the last Australian to win in Chris O'Neil. Hopefully 2020 is the year Ash Barty can end that streak and add to her French Open title.

Glancing over the rest of the field and last year's winner Naomi Osaka is a name that could be added to this list for years to come. At just 22 years old she and Barty (23) may break this erratic cycle and trade first or second finishes for the next decade.

Also be sure to read our Australian Open viewing guide to see whose name is destined for this list next. Anyway here's the full list.
