MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) All 100 top-ranked men and 99 of the top 100 women have entered to play the Australian Open in January.
Tennis Australia chief executive Craig Tiley said in a statement Saturday that the field for the tournament beginning Jan. 19 was one of the "deepest and strongest" in the Grand Slam event's history.
Tiley said the only absentee from the women's draw was No. 58 Petra Cetkovska of Czech Republic, who withdrew due to a hip injury.
