Aussie Open Summer Of Tennis 2019 – Your Guide
Welcome to the 2019 Summer of Tennis – A message from Robbie Manzano
2019 will be a big year for Tennis Canberra. The team has over 120 weekly sessions running during the Summer Season so we are really looking forward to the challenge. Our coaches learnt so much last year and have already implemented strategies so our players, coaches and families have the best experience.
I welcome all the new players to Tennis Canberra and cannot wait to introduce you to our humble tennis community. Tennis is a sport your can play for life and a sport that brings people together.
Below is information on how you can get involved this summer and my predictions for this year’s Australian Open.

There are a range of tennis coaching and competition options at Tennis Canberra. We have some fun events for both adults and juniors.
Aussie Open Fever – Who to look out for
It begins! The best players in the world have hit our shores. It is an exciting time for tennis in Australia with Alex di Minaur winning the Sydney International and Ash Barty coming close to taking out the Women’s title.
Aussie Pick: I see Ash Barty making the second week despite a tough encounter with former Roland Garros Champion Ostapenko in the 3rd round. I am expecting inform Alex Di Minuar to make the 3rd where he will have nothing to lose against Rafa Nadal.
Don’t forget about John Peers: With our singles players making headlines, we cannot forget about John Peers. Already a Doubles Australian Open Champion, Peers and Kontinen have formed a dangerous pairing over the last couple of years and are my pick to win this year’s Men’s Doubles title.
Wishing Canberra Tennis Representatives Alison Bai & Nick Kyrgios the best of luck:
At his best Nick can beat anyone in the world. It has been a slow start to the season but we cannot rule him out with the weapons he possesses. Kyrgios has a tough first round match against 16th seed Milos Raonic but I expect him to serve big and take his chances when Raonic blinks on his serve.
Canberra’s Alison Bai has received a wild card in to the Womens Doubles. Partnering up with Zoe Hives (who has been on fire this summer), I give them a good chance to get through the important first round and compete further into the draw.
