Sydney International is all about the tennis, with rising stars, established veterans and the world’s top ranked players all hitting Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre with the aim of lifting the trophy at the end of the week and entertaining the fans while they’re at it.
World class tennis is not all that will be on offer though, with plenty of food, drink and entertainment to keep the centre buzzing both on and off court. Check out the best of what’s on around the grounds from 7-13 January:
Catch all your favourite ATP and WTA players at Autograph Counter throughout the week, including the likes of Venus Williams, Petra Kvitova, Angelique Kerber and Kei Nishikori.
There will be multiple appearances at Autograph Island each day, with times and players to be announced at the start of each session. On the two dedicated Kids’ Tennis Days, players will visit activations on The Lawn. You can also catch your favourite players from the NSW Swifts, GWS Giants and Sydney Thunder in the Sports Zone on 7 and 8 January.
