The 2014 Australian Open Tennis is firing up in Melbourne this week and is kicking off another big year for Tennis. Will Djokavic retain his position at the top of the Men’s Tennis world? Will Federer bounce back from a up-and-down 2013? Will Tomic beat Rafa in the first round and then proceed to do burnouts on centre court?
We’ll find out the answers to all of this in due course, but first, instead of watching the tournament the old-fashioned way, how can you use technology to follow the tournament?
Those who don’t have access to a TV screen can enjoy streaming of matches right on their computer via the official 2014 Australian Open website. Live, point-by-point tennis score updates are also on this site, along with results of previous matches.
The official broadcast partner website over at Yahoo!7 also keeps tabs of all the live scores for all matches and other news on what’s going on in and around the 2014 Australian Open.
Other news sites are also providing coverage of the tournament. The Guardian is offering great play-by-play coverage of the key match-ups at this year’s tournament.
