Just when you thought tennis was getting boring, the 2012 Australian Open brings forth the most exciting tennis match ever… six hours long!!! Catch 22… how can anyone stand to watch something six hours long? It’s best just to read about it here on Kidzworld.

Novak Djokovic defeated Rafael Nadal in five long and grueling sets 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, 6-7, 7-5. It took Novak five hours and 53 minutes to finish off Rafa, but seriously was anyone even awake to witness it? Luckily we live in a age where cameras no longer run on tape anymore, because they would have definitely run out.

On the other side of things, the women’s final brought forth a brand new champion in Victoria Azarenka as she defeated Maria Sharapova without breaking a sweat… 6-3 and 6-0. When Victoria won her final match point she looked up to her family in the stands confused and asked “Really? I won?”

Often the sport of tennis is usually only rated on it’s excitement because of the final matches between the champions… but it’s wrong to do that. There are so many new rising stars climbing the ranks and playing in exciting matches that no one ever talks about. In the very opening round an unranked  20-year-old Aussie, Bernard Tomic, stunned his hometown crowd by defeating 22 ranked Fernando Verdasco.

Grand Slam Sequence

The Australian Open is one of the four major Grand Slam tennis events throughout the year. The next one is the French Open, which is held throughout May and June in France.
