The performances of Australian doubles pairings in 2013 were solid, with a mixed doubles pairing winning the Australian Open and a ladies doubles pairing making the final of three of the four grand slams. In singles, the best result for any player was the fourth round of a grand slam; however, there were strong performances from some emerging juniors. Like other professional sports, AIS investment in tennis is primarily targeted at the athlete pathway. Performances in wheelchair tennis were in the expected range but a key challenge for the future is having more athletes qualify for grand slam events.

Tennis Australia (TA) implemented a significant governance reform strategy in 2008 to move to a fully independent board and bring the organisation into close alignment with the ASC’s mandatory governance principles.

TA continues to grow participation in key programs Tennis Hot Shots and Cardio Tennis. In 2013, TA launched a range of new initiatives to support these programs, including Tennis Community Play and Hot Shots tournaments. TA also announced a new program, AO Blitz, which combines innovative online engagement and community events to connect the Australian community with the Australian Open and summer tennis events.
