No trip to Melbourne in the summer would be complete without spending a day at the tennis so onto the tram we hopped.  Along with thousands of other tennis fans, we marched along the river bound for Melbourne Park.  We found seats in the Hisense Arena and there began our 10 hour tennis marathon. 

Unwilling to vacate our fabulous seats on the baseline, we watched second round men's singles, second round women's singles, first round men's doubles then another second round of men's singles.

Fabulous tennis!  The soundtrack of our walk back to the tram was the cheers of the crowd watching Lleyton Hewitt's final singles match.  The Australian Open is a Melbourne institution that is certainly worthy of its Grand Slam status!
