David Goffin (ATP 39) will not be the only Belgian tennis player in Melbourne Park at the beginning of January. Elise Mertens (WTA 21), Alison Van Uytvanck (WTA 68) and Greet Minnen (WTA 75) also started their season in the capital of the Australian state of Victoria, in one of the two WTA 250 tournaments (3-9/01 ) on the Australian Open site.

The highest ranked Belgian tennis players are on the list released by Tennis Australia on Friday. However, Elise Mertens, Alison Van Uytvanck and Greet Minnen do not yet know whether they will end up on the same table. The organizers of Melbourne 1 and Melbourne 2 still have to divide the players between the two tournaments.

There is no news about Kim Clijsters (WTA 111) yet. The name of the 38-year-old Limburger, who only played two singles matches in 2021, has not yet surfaced anywhere. “Kim is still looking at the various options. More information will follow shortly”, her manager Bob Laes told Belga.
