2016-01-17_1833

The 2016 Australian Open gets underway today.

DATES: January 18 – 31, 2016
VENUE: Melbourne Park
HOSTS: Joh Griggs, Todd Woodbridge, Hamish McLachlan, Jim Wilson, Basil Zempilas, Peter Donegan, Jason Richardson and Dave Culbert
COMMENTATORS: Bruce McAvaney, Jim Courier, Lleyton Hewitt, Todd Woodbridge, John Newcombe, Sam Smith, John Fitzgerald, Alicia Molik, Rennae Stubbs, Henri Leconte, Peter Donegan, Roger Rasheed, Geoff Masters, Dave Culbert 
REPORTERS: Rachael Finch, Giaan Rooney, Neil Kearney, Nathan Templeton.

Meanwhile four-time Grand Slam winner Kim Clijsters is also joining Seven’s tennis commentary team.

“I’ve watched the Channel 7 broadcast since I first came to Australia as a teenager. It will certainly be a thrill to work alongside Bruce McAvaney and the team,” she said.

“I have done some guest spots on several occasions but this will be a different role of analysing. Having had so much playing experience on Rod Laver Arena, I can’t wait to give the viewers some of that intimate knowledge and experience.”
