With Australia Day weekend set to host this year’s women’s and men’s singles finals at the first tennis Grand Slam of the year, we thought we’d see who our Bacchus Marsh community will be cheering for. At the time of writing this post there have already been a number of upsets in the draw, and the semis still are yet to be played. In the women’s draw we’ve seen the top 3 players go down, and of course defending champion Novak Djokovic was bundled out of the men’s by an amazing performance by ‘Stan the Man’ Wawrinka in the quarters.
Whether you’ve made your way into Rod Laver Arena over the past couple of weeks, or have been watching from the comfort of your couch at home, you’ve undoubtedly been impressed with a number of stellar efforts over the past fortnight. We’ve been blown away by the number of fantastic youngsters coming through, and lots of players really taking it up to the champions. And in just a couple of days we’ll be treated to, what promises to be, a fantastic weekend of tennis finals in Melbourne Park.
Who is your pick to hold the women’s and men’s trophy aloft this weekend?
