A Grand Slam season to remember in 2022


The story of the 2023 Grand Slam season is set to start with the Australian Open – and if the chapters that unfolded in a stellar 2022 are a guide, it’s certain to include compelling characters, brilliant suspense and thrilling heroics. 

The 2022 Grand Slam wrap highlights the many milestones achieved throughout a record-breaking year, which started with Ash Barty becoming the first local player to claim the Australian Open women’s singles title in more than four decades. 

There were further highs for Australian fans as Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis teamed up to claim the Australian Open men’s doubles honours

In his 20th year as a Grand Slam competitor, Rafael Nadal underlined his credentials as one of the greatest players ever. A second Australian Open title was also the Spaniard’s 21st major title, making him the all-time leader for men’s major singles titles

The prolific Nadal extended that record at Roland Garros, where he lifted the trophy for an astonishing 14th time. 

After rising to world No.1, Iga Swiatek validated her position at the top of the rankings with a second singles triumph at the clay-court major and a third Grand Slam in total at the US Open

For Carlos Alcaraz, a major breakthrough as the US Open men’s singles champion ensured his history-making rise to world No.1.

There were also memorable celebrations as Elena Rybakina was crowned ladies’ singles champion at Wimbledon, and Novak Djokovic claimed the gentleman’s singles title for a seventh time

Reflecting on those milestones, and others, is a stunning reminder of an unforgettable year in tennis history – and sets a tantalising scene for the season ahead.
