Australian Open 2012 - level 3, A12
The 2012 Australian Open finished on Sunday. The Australian open is one of the four best tennis tournaments of the year. However, some players don’t like the hot weather because sometimes the temperature can go well above 30 °C during the matches.
This tournament was really important because three woman players had a chance to become the world’s number one champion. Azarenka from Belarus, Kvitova from the Czech Republic and Sharapova from Russia could all become the world’s number one champion at this tournament. The luckiest was Azarenka and now we have a new queen of the woman’s tennis.
There were no surprises among the men. The four best players in the world all made it to the semi-finals: Djokovic, Federer, Nadal and Murray. The winner was Novak Djokovic who beat Rafael Nadal in the final. The players played for almost 6 hours and the final finished at 2 am Melbourne time. The winner has got 2.3 million Australian dollars. The Australian dollar has almost the same value as the American dollar.
