Tennis is one of the sports that has fans from all over the world. Even though most people prefer to watch team-based sports, there are also many who love the fact that tennis is different. Regardless if you like to watch male or female tennis players, tennis is a beautiful and sophisticated sport.

Apart from being entertaining, tennis is also famous for having a mature audience that enjoys different tournaments. Unlike football, where some “fans” will do everything they can to disrupt the match, people attend tennis games to relax and have fun.

While we’re on the topic of tournaments, let’s take a look at some of the top tennis events that you definitely want to watch if you haven’t already. Each of them takes place every year, and it brings together the most prominent athletes in this sport.


Even if you’re not a tennis fan, you have probably heard of Wimbledon at least a few times. This is the tournament that’s considered to be the most prestigious in the tennis world. What’s interesting about it is that it was first held back in 1877. Even after all those years, the tournament is still played on grass.

Needless to say, Wimbledon will always feature the best male and female tennis players. In addition to them, you can often see many celebrities, including people from the Royal Family. If you have to watch just one tennis tournament, this should be it.

Australian Open

Australian Open is the first big tournament of the year that’s held in Melbourne, Australia. Unlike Wimbledon, the event is played on a hard surface, which means that the experience is a lot different for the players.

What’s interesting about the Australian Open is that it’s really heavily dominated by a few tennis players in the last couple of years - Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. Those of you who’ve followed the tournament probably also placed a few bets. If you haven’t done this yet, but you’re looking forward to trying it out, according to this review by Efirbet, Melbet is one of the best places to do that.

Roland Garros

This is one of the most distinct tennis tournaments because it's the only one from the Grand Slam events that is played on clay. Those of you who follow this sport know that this is the place where Rafael Nadal shines the most because he has won it over 12 times, which is just mind-blowing.

Roland Garros takes place in Paris, which makes the entire experience even better. If you have the chance, definitely visit some of the matches.

US Open

Lastly, we have yet another fantastic tennis tournament that every player has to check out, and that’s US Open. In most cases, this is the last event that is a part of the Grand Slam that dates back from 1881, making it one of the world’s oldest tournaments.

There are many reasons why you’d like to watch this tournament. Apart from the fact that you will see the best tennis players in the world, you will also feel the incredible New York vibe. Similar to Wimbledon, you might even find many celebrities.
