There’s more to the tennis then, well, the tennis. A visit to the Australian Open features fine food, fashion and an A-list crowd. So much so that this world class sporting fixture is a must-attend event on Melbourne’s social calendar.
Jason and I were honoured to be guests of Emirates on the Friday night of the men’s singles semi-final. What started in the evening as a scrumptious three-course-meal in the Emirates marquee transpired into a five-set tennis extravaganza on centre court.
The 2017 men’s semi-final between Rafael Nadal and Grigor Dimitrov went right down to the wire, so much so it’s been labelled as one of the best Australian Open semi-finals of all time. Nadal eventually finished victorious well past midnight.
We couldn’t have asked for more as part of our #EmiratesReturn experience. The quality of tennis matched the hospitality making it a night we’ll never forget.
