Images from the Australian Open

Over the last few years I have made the annual trip to Melbourne to enjoy a few sessions at the Australian Open Tennis. We left for Melbourne yesterday but not before waiting for over two hours in the plane after Perth Airport was closed due to Perth's stormy weather. Still, despite the delay we made it to Melbourne in time for a long arranged dinner with friends.

This morning it was a delicious breakfast at a South Melbourne cafe where the coffee has to be one of the best I have tasted. Then we were off to the tennis. Good weather, happy crowds, great tennis, catching up with more friends and lots of entertainment! A fabulous sporting event.

Serena Willams (USA) in her warm up for tonight's match against Greta Arn (Hungry). 

Keen supporters for tonight's exciting match between Lleyton Hewitt and Milos Raonic. (Lleyton won). 


  1. Fabulous, I love those posts that capture the spirit of the moment and events that are so situated in their respective city. Thanks for sharing!

  2. What a great shot to show the size and capacity of the stadium Rae, full house by the look of it. Can't believe you got held up at the airport because of the weather, as yet up here in the northern suburbs NOT ONE DROP of rain, not happy Jan!! haha!

  3. Good to hear that Hewitt got through. Have you seen Murray? A whole nation's hopes rest on one pair of shoulders (again). "Come on Tim" as they say.

  4. My mum & dad used to regularly go to the Open. I love this time of the year with the tennis. Enjoy your time.
