Nothing screams Aussie Aussie Aussie more than the Australian Open.
Over the last fortnight of January every year, people from far and wide flock to Melbourne, Victoria to witness the champions of tennis battle it out in the Australian heat for a Grand Slam title.
Just like every year, 2013 was not a tournament to disappoint. Who could forget the loveable personality of Marcos Baghdatis, the country cheering on Bernard Tomic, the inspirational win of Li Na, and of course, the edge-of-seat match between Andy Murray and Roger Federer… to finally see the title of champion claimed by Novak Djokovic and Victoria Azarenka.
For many, the blues may have taken hold at the thought that there is year long wait before all this excitement will start again. However, the Australian Open merchandise range is still available for purchase to ease any tennis-absence aches, and offers fantastic ideas for Christmas presents for that tennis-crazed loved one!
An all-time favourite for all ages is the Wilson Jumbo Ball in Pink ($35), and the Wilson Mini-Jumbo Ball ($25). For other avid fans there are caps and t-shirts for both men and women, plush toys, towels, bags, stickers, iPod accessories and more. To check out the full range, visit the online store here.
