AO 2024 – Day 1 men’s final results

MELBOURNE, Australia – The top half of the men’s draw is kicking off the new “first Sunday” at the Australian Open.

But only part of it – half of it, actually, 16 matches in all.

But the big guy, defending champion Novak Djokovic, was on the sked. So both of the reigning champions will be playing. Djokovic had a tough one – to say the least – against 18-year-old Dino Prizmic.

No Canadians in action.
