The latest edition to the Grand slam tennis, the Australian Open tennis championships started in 1905 as the Australasian Championships. The championships saw seven different venues in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth, Christ Church and Hastings. The tournament was played on grass till 1987 and then moved to hardcourts. Due to the December scheduling of the event, it was not hosted in 1986 when rescheduled to January in 1987. Serena Williams holds the record of most Australian Open wins in the open era, although Margaret Smith Court is the uncontested queen of the Aussie Open with 11 titles. Among men, Roy Emerson stands first with 6 triumphs, whereas Roger Federer and Andre Agassi are tied with 4 titles in the open era.
