The 2012 Australian Open was a credit to both organisers and players, as defending champion and world number one Novak Djokovic played out an epic battle against Rafael Nadal in the prestigious Rod Laver Arena at Melbourne Park!
The Australian Open 2012 final went down in history as the longest Grand Slam final in the Open era with Novak Djokovic from Serbia lifting the Melbourne trophy for the third time in his tennis career.
Runner up Rafael Nadal, Swiss veteran and four-time winner Roger Federer as well as British Andy Murray who lost both finals in 2010 and 2011, will be united in their quest to make sure Djokovic does not win the Australian Open three times in a row.
In the women's event, Victoria Azarenka went to world number one after securing a swift 6-3, 6-0 win against Russia's Maria Sharapova. On her way to the final, she beat Watson, Dellacqua, Barthel, Benesova and Radwanska to face her toughest encounter against Kim Clijsters in the semi-final which she won 6-4, 1-6, 6-3.
We certainly look forward to yet another thrilling Grand Slam Down Under in 2013, especially now that we can watch all the action free online!
