Osaka and Kerber have both been away from the sport in 2023 after giving birth, while Wozniacki made her return to tennis in August, having spent the last three years in retirement.

She had an impressive run to the quarterfinals of the US Open in only her third tournament back, where she was defeated by eventual champion Coco Gauff.

Tiley, who is also CEO of Tennis Australia, also noted that he “expects” to see home favorite and 2022 Wimbledon runner-up Nick Kygrios back in action at next year’s tournament.

The 2024 Australian Open will run from the January 14-28, opening on a Sunday for the first time in tournament history.
