Australian Open 2012 - level 2, A12
The 2012 Australian Open finished on Sunday. The Australian open is one of the four best tennis tournaments of the year, but some players don’t like the hot weather because sometimes the temperature can be higher than 30 °C during the matches.
This tournament was really interesting because three women players had a chance to become the number one player in the world. Azarenka from Belarus, Kvitova from the Czech Republic and Sharapova from Russia could all become the number one player in the world at this tournament. The luckiest was Azarenka and now we have a new queen of the woman’s tennis.
There were no surprises for the men. The four best players in the world were all in the semi-finals: Djokovic, Federer, Nadal and Murray. The winner was Novak Djokovic who beat Rafael Nadal in the final. The players played more than 5 hours and the final finished at 2 am Melbourne time. The winner has got 2.3 million Australian dollars. The Australian dollar is similar to the American dollar.
