Australian Open Tennis

Well last night I decided to buy a ticket for day 1 of the Australian Open.

I fluked it and got a seat in the 2nd row of Rod Laver Arena, which is the main court.  Not just any seat mind you, the seat was literally across the aisle from the Player’s Box…not bad until you realise that means that there’s a camera only a couple of metres from you.

So the first game on Rod Laver Arena was number 3 seed Simona Halep against Karin Knapp and I had Simona Halep’s people next to me and she won.

Second up was Ana Ivanovic against Lucie Hradecka and I had Ana’s people next to me…unfortunately she lost.

Then I decided to go for a stroll around and ended up meeting Mark Philippoussis…which excited me no end.  There’s been a long time liking of him going on…and by long time I’m talking about 20 years…so I was slightly over excited.

Then it was back to Rod Laver Arena to check out Rafael Nadal in his win against Mikhail Youzhny and I had Rafa’s people next to me.  He also had Spanish doubles player Marc Lopez in his box.

Here’s a few pictures from the day.
