My friend and I went to the Australian Open in Melbourne. We only got to stay in Melbourne for 4 nights and we only got two tickets for the tennis but it is certainly enough for a good Christmas and birthday Present. I thought it would be an Interesting post. So here it is….
On Wednesday the 19th my friend and I went to the Australian Open. (By the Way the Australian Open is the tennis in Melbourne) We went with our Mums. We went at 3:45 in the afternoon on Virgin Blue. We were so excited. The Flight only took an hour so Steph and I talked the whole flight. We were staying with Steph’s Cousins. I had met them once before so I sought of new who they were. When the flight had finished it was 6:30 in Melbourne. We went to collect our baggage and then we went outside to wait for Stephs Uncle to come and pick us up. We only had to wait for 5 minutes and then he picked us up and took us to their house. It only took 15 minutes from the Airport to get to their house. They had a huge house with a pool and a spa. Mum and I slept in one of Stephs cousin’s room. Mum slept on his bed and I slept on the ground and he slept in his sister’s room. Once we had settled in Steph and I went out the front of their house and waited for her cousins. When they got home we said hi and then we sat in Mia’s room and went on our Ipad. We watched funny videos until Mum said that we were not allowed to go on it anymore because we were about to have dinner. We had lamb roast and Shasicks. It was yummy. After everyone had finished eating we all went in the pool. (Well only Conner went in the pool all the girls stayed in the spa) After being in the pool we got changed and then we watched a bit of Easy A. (the movie) At 11:00 we went to bed because the next morning Steph, Kelly, Mum and I were going to the day session of the Australian Open.
On Thursday the 20th we had to get up at about 8:00 because Stephs cousins and their Mum went to Queensland for a Party. Steve stayed home. Once they had gone and when we were ready Steve took us to the Australian Open it took about half an hour to get there. When we got to a light that was sought of close to the Courts we got out of the car and then walked to the courts. When we got there we got a picture of all of us and then we went to the Ticket People they had to check our bags and because it was ladies day we got a gift. We got this face moisture spray. When we had gone through the process we went to Rod Lava Arena and found our seats we were just in time to see the start of Kim Clisters game instead of waiting for the first game to finish. Our seats were fantastic. We could see all the action. Kim played Carla Suarez Navarro Kimmy won the match. I would tell you more about the games but it would be too long. Then we saw Raffa Nadel. He versed Ryan Sweeting and Raffa won the Match. After that game we watched our last game which was Alicia Molik who versed Nadia Petrova. Alicia Molik lost 4-6 1-6. After we had bought a few things from the Pro shop we went to the Tram right next to the back entry and exit.
We did not have to get up early but I did because I was excited! We got ready to go shopping and then the tennis. Once we were all ready we went by train and stopped at Flinders Street. We got off and we did a lot of shopping if I told you all of the things we bought we would be here forever. At 6:00 we headed off to find a restaurant but did not find one. So we just had a mini pizza each at the Australian Open. When we got to the Australian Open we watched Monfils and Wawrinka play Wawrinka won 7-6, 6-2, and 6-3. We unfortunately did not get to see Venus Play because she hurt a leg muscle. Then we watched a game from the garden. Then we went back to the house.
We got on the plane at 8:00 and got back at 9:45. I was glad to be home but I was sad I could not see any more matches. Maybe next Year.
