The official ranking of women and men in the main category was based on the most recent ATP and WTA rankings (dated January 9, 2023). At the Australian Open, as in other Grand Slam events, 32 tennis players and 32 tennis players will be marked in this way.

Ladies, everything is according to plan. The higher seed will be Iga Świątek, who is currently the best tennis player in the world. Thus, the 21-year-old will go down in the history of the Australian Open as the first representative of Poland (woman or man) to perform in singles with the number one number.

The Tunisian “two” Anas Jaber and the American Jessica Pegula will play the “three” and the French “four” Caroline Garcia. The last one, at number 32, was Swiss rocket Gilles Teichmann, who is currently the 33rd rocket in the world. This was made possible because Romanian Simon Halep had to resign from playing in Melbourne after being provisionally suspended in a doping case.
