Why Multiple Tournaments in Melbourne?
The coronavirus situation and the Australian government’s [correct] decision to close borders between states as soon as there is an outbreak of a handful of cases has made Tennis Australia go the route of the US Open.
Much like the US Open organizers had shifted the Cincinnati Open to New York, Tennis Australia has opted to organise three tournaments in the week leading up to the Australian Open, all of which will be played in Melbourne to ease the creation of a bio-secure bubble.
As a result, we will be covering an ATP Melbourne Summer Set and two WTA Melbourne Summer Set live streaming options below.

- WTA Melbourne Summer Set 1

One other tournament will be played in Adelaide during the second week of the first major, and will go by the name of Adelaide International which is held each year.
