The Australian Open is undoubtably one of Australia’s biggest sporting and entertainment festival of the year, drawing thousands of crowds from across the globe to Melbourne’s bustling city for their annual two-week summer of tennis party. An event rich in history, the Australian Open has come a long way since it’s humble beginnings over 114 years ago.
