First major tennis tournament in 2012

The Australia Open is the first major tennis tournament also known as Grand Slam in 2012. The tournament has a long history traced back to 1905 and like the rest of the other grand slams, it involves high cash prize and ranking points.

A professional player at the grand slam can earn just about $20,000 for winning the first round all the way to $2 million plus for the championship title. The winner of the tournament can get about 2000 ranking points.

It is also a tournament where it can see high audience rate. Most if not all of the top professional players will certainly be at this event and perform the best they could in this. Coming soon in two weeks time, the players are definitely in their last preparation for the tournament and will be exciting to see them.
