Tennis: How the Aussies fared in the Grand Slams in 2023

With the dust already settled on the final Grand Slam of the year at the US Open, here’s a look back on how Australians fared in 2023’s major tournaments.

After the early retirement of three-time Grand Slam winner Ashleigh Barty, Australia is looking to its next star to claim the next major title.

While there has been injury frustration in some quarters, there are more positive signs elsewhere that an Australian Grand Slam success might not be too far around the corner.

Foundations in place for De Minaur

Alex de Minaur had a solid season when it came to the Grand Slam events but the Sydney native is still looking to get to that next level to challenge in finals.

Reaching the fourth round of both the Australian Open and US Open this year, De Minaur has shown he is capable of delivering a run of wins in these prestigious tournaments.

However, the 24-year-old will need to keep progressing if he is to challenge the likes of Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz and Daniil Medvedev for Grand Slam honours next season.

De Minaur is 67.00 to win his home Slam at the Australian Open in 2024, while he’s available at 67.00 to go all the way at the US Open.

Injuries stall Kyrgios' development

After reaching the final of Wimbledon last year, there was plenty of excitement about what Nick Kyrgios might achieve in 2023.

However, injuries have plagued that star from Canberra, who has only managed one ATP Tour match this year.

A knee injury before the Australian Open set the tone for the months to follow, which must have been extremely difficult for the 28-year-old, especially after his progress last season.

Kyrgios is available at 9.00 to win the Australian Open in 2024, while he’s 34.00 to win a first major title at Wimbledon.  

Birrell has potential 

Looking to fill the void left by Bartly, there are also promising signs coming for Kimberly Birrell, with the Gold Coast native competing in the early rounds of the Grand Slam events this year.

Birrell reached the third round of the Australian Open in 2019 and is still looking to match that progress in Melbourne or any of the other three major events.

With the women’s game being so open these days following the retirement of the great Serena Williams, Birrell will be hoping to continue her development into next year and start competing at the business end of Grand Slams.

At 25 years old, time is certainly on her side and the top-ranked Australian will be looking to build on the foundations of this season to shine in 2024.
