The 2012 Australian Open begins in Melbourne on Monday, and there are many exciting players and compelling storylines to follow throughout the tournament.

Novak Djokovic is the defending men's champion, and he is hoping to carry the success he had last season into 2012. The world's No. 1-ranked player won three Grand Slam singles titles in 2011 and cemented himself as the undisputed top player in tennis.

He will be challenged by top stars Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray. Murray lost to Djokovic in the final in Melbourne last year and has yet to win a Grand Slam singles title in his career.

Kim Clijsters is the defending champion of the event on the women's side and comes into this year's tournament ranked No. 12 in the world. She will face stiff competition from a talented field of women, including world No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki.

 

Come back to this slide show every day for scores and recaps throughout the tournament, from the first round on Monday to the men's final on Jan. 29.
