Australian Open 2018 Winners, Brackets & Scores

As one of the proud partners of the Australian Open, Sportsnet outlines the winners, brackets and results from the 2018 tournament. Find out more today!

The Australian Open is Australia’s most iconic tennis tournament and recognised around the globe. It attracts the world’s most elite tennis players to Melbourne in January of each year.

Not only is it the first Grand Slam tournament of the year, it’s also popular with players and fans for its electric atmosphere and welcoming Australian hospitality. Melbourne comes alive during the tournament with festivals and activities to complement the tennis, always playing the perfect host.

However, the 2018 event served up extreme heat, on court drama and a few surprise upsets.

Some of the big names were absent in 2018, including Serena Williams, Andy Murray and Bernard Tomic… but that made way for some new talent to break through the ranks.

Crowd favourite Roger Federer played through the heat and proved why he’s the king of the Australian Open, taking out his 20th Grand Slam Title, while Caroline Wozniacki played possibly the match of her career and cemented her place in Australia’s tennis history.


Men’s – Winners, Brackets & Scores

Most who visit the Australian Open are expecting to see Fed in the final…. But at the 2018 Australian Open an Aussie was also on people’s minds. Nick Kyrgios had just won the Brisbane International and spectators couldn’t help but wonder if an Aussie underdog could be the new Lleyton! Come on!

Kyrgios was off to a great start, defeating Rogerio Dutra Silva in straight sets in his first round.

He went on to ruffle a few feathers, in true Kyrgios style, when he called out to noisy fans interrupting his serve. He went on to beat Viktor Troicki in his second round. However, it wasn’t meant to be and he was beaten in Round 4 by Bulgaria’s Grigor Dimitrov.

The newcomers to 2018’s iconic event included Hyeon Chung, Kyle Edmund and an American that goes by the name Tennys Sandgren.

South Korea’s Hyeon Chung won the hearts of spectators, with his outgoing personality and on court antics.

When he took on six-time Australian Open winner and former world number one, Novak Djokovic, in the 4th round everyone assumed Chung’s dream run was over. Fastforward three sets and Djokovic was out. 

Chung was now South Korea’s first ever Grand Slam semi-finalist, and next he was taking on none other than Roger Federer. However, his Australian Open campaign was over when he was forced to retire due to serious blisters on his feet.

Rafael Nadal’s 2018 Australian Open effort ended in the quarter-finals, due to injury. Before that, he’d played extraordinary tennis and was a crowd favourite. His quarter-final opponent, Marin Cilic, went on to centre court in the final against Roger Federer. The Croatian fought hard, but it wasn’t enough to take out one of, if not the, world’s best players. Federer finished in tears, claiming his 20th Grand Slam, at the age of 36.


Women’s – Winners, Brackets & Scores

Crowd favourite and fashion forward Serena Williams was missing from the 2018 event, but local eyes were on the Aussie women.

Former US Open Champion and popular Australian player Sam Stosur was put on a pedestal from her previous wins, and fans had high hopes. However, she was knocked out in round one, leaving fans a little disheartened.

From early on in the tournament, Romania’s Simona Halep proved she was one to watch this Australian Open. She fought hard throughout the tournament, with three notable matches. Nobody could question her determination, or fitness. Her Round 3 match against American Lauren Davis was a near four-hour ordeal. Halep came out on top, and left her mark in the history books. It equalled the longest-ever Australian Open women’s match in terms of games, the last this long was in 1996!

Halep went on to make the final and deserved to be there after her performance throughout the 2018 Australian Open. She was up against Denmark’s Caroline Wozniacki, who was playing in her first major title.

Both women put up a fight and many who watched could feel the tension between the women. Three hours later and an epic performance… and lessons in endurance and skill, Caroline Wozniacki was crowed the 2018 Australian Open Women’s Champion. It has been described as one of ‘the best women’s deciders in The Australian Open’s living memory’.
