Taking a look at some unbreakable records of Australian Open
The Australian Open is the first Grand Slam of a fresh new calendar year and one of the most looked forward to. Having held 107 editions so far, the Slam continues to create historical moments and records every edition. In the same light, let us have a look at some of the unbreakable records from this event so far.
Serena Williams: Playing the most number of women's final
Playing in the final of a Slam is a moment of pride and honor, regardless of one wins or loses. On the same note, the record for playing the most number of women's final of the event lies with USA's Serena Williams, doing so on eight occasions, while she has lost just once. None of the current players are even close to breaking this.
Margaret Court: Most women's singles titles
When it comes to the most number of titles won, Margaret Court is a no-brainer. Notably, she is the only woman to have played in both the eras. While she had won seven in the amateur era, she has a total of 11 titles in the event. Serena is next to her, having won seven in the open era. However, Margaret's record seems unbreakable.
Margaret: Most consecutive women's Singles titles
Margaret has another record to her name, having won seven consecutive titles, from 1960-66. A number of women have tried replicating the success in the open era, but have failed to go beyond three, as it is likely to stay unbroken forever.
Australia: Record reign of men's singles titles
Considering the success in the tournament as per nations, it is the Australians who have mostly dominated in the event, as they have claimed 50 singles titles to date among men. The record will stay unbroken as the next successful team is the USA, with 18 titles. However, it is the USA who lead in the open era, having won 14 titles.
Roy Emerson: Most consecutive Men's Singles titles
Winning on a consistent basis proves the sheer athleticism and dedication of the player. Similarly, the record for winning the most consecutive men's singles titles lies with Roy Emerson, who won five, from 1963-67. Novak Djokovic is the one in the open era, with three, from 2011-13. With the open era being deemed too competitive, this record, too, is not getting broken anytime soon.
