On Friday, the first Grand Slam of the year will begin here at Rod Laver Arena with a practise match between nine-time Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic and Nick Kyrgios.

“Get set for explosive action as tennis’ most famous frenemies come together on RLA for an exciting practice match before #AO2023,” tournament organisers tweeted on Monday.

It will be their first encounter following their thrilling Wimbledon final last year, and it will be Djokovic’s first game in Melbourne following his victory at the Australian Open in 2021. Since October, the Australian has been out of commission. Due to an ankle injury, he also opted out of the United Cup.

Kyrgios has won both of their prior encounters on hard courts, giving him a 2-1 advantage in their head-to-head record.

The Australian Open’s Perfect Practice series concludes with The Arena Showdown, which happens each afternoon this week at Rod Laver Arena.

Perfect Practice will be played under match conditions, with umpires, ball kids and electronic line calling.
