Picture special: Tervets at the Australian Open

Thursday was our last day in Melbourne before heading to our new home in Albury. With one of the four tennis majors on our doorstep (or at least, less than 15 stops on the train), how could we not get involved? Andy Murray and his brother Jamie were both in action, so we packed the Union Jack and some sandwiches. Rather than rattle off the details of our day in the sun, I've included a selection of pictures from Melbourne Park. Enjoy...

Jamie Murray on his way out of the doubles on Court 15

The away end

Daniela Hantuchova (second left) also featured in the doubles

Good arena, poor tennis. Ladies singles on Court 2

Australian equivalent of Henman Hill

Andy Murray (right) on his way to a straights-set victory over Edouard Roger-Vasselin in Hisense Arena. The Frenchman was a slippery customer.

We both blagged free tickets for the Murray match. Below, a selection of other tennis punters...

And to finish, the post-match. Job well done, Andy.
