Melbourne - Tennis Olè

Federer vs. Nadal

overcast 18 °C

In Melbourne durften wir wieder im schönen Hotel übernachten mit super bequemen Betten, TV und eigenes Badezimmer. Den ersten sonnigen Tag in der Stadt haben wir natürlich sofort genutzt um uns die Rod Laver Arena anzuschauen. Für alle nicht Tennis Fans: In diesem Stadion werden die Australian Open jährlich ausgetragen. Wir waren auf einer 1 Stündigen Führung mit Blick hinter die Kulissen inklusive Umkleiden, Superboxen, Pokale und Presseraum. Der Tennisplatz war leider nicht zu sehen, da am Abend vorher ein Konzert stattfand. Federer und Nadal waren leider nicht da, aber dafür viele Fotos, Geschichten und eine Unterschriftenwand. Haben uns auch die „Docklands“ angeschaut, Zeit beim Starbucks verbracht und den größten Markt der Stadt besucht (knapp 600 Verkaufsstände).

A nice and comfortable Hotel was waiting for us in Melbourne with TV and our own bathroom. We spent the first beautiful sunny day doing a tour of the Rod Laver Arena, for all non Tennis fans out there: this is where the Australian Open take place every year. A one hour tour took us behind the scenes including the locker rooms, VIP box, throphies and the press room. The tennis court was unfortunately not visible because of a concert that took place the night before. Federer and Nadal were not available, but we saw a lot of pictures, heard stories about them and saw a signature board. We also walked along the harbour at the docklands, spent time at starbucks and shopped at the biggest market in Melbourne (about 600 stands)
