Happy Christmas everyone.

My wife has given me the best Christmas present ever:

Two tickets to the Australian Open (4th round and quarterfinals, Rod Laver Arena).

A return plane ticket to Melbourne (from New Zealand).

2 nights in a hotel in Melbourne city centre.

I can't believe it!!

Best present ever, or what?

Definitely one of the better presents I've heard. I hope you got her something good :D

Have you been to the AO before? If not, you're gonna love it mate.

Then it is only a short hop away. Not such a big deal as I thought.

But not bad at all.

What greater gift than to have a loving, understanding spouse !

Nevertheless, hope your wish of seeing His Awesomeness play and win comes true.

Beats the carton of Beck's I bought myself. Although I will be drinking it while the watching the Boxing Day Test Match-my 2nd most important day of the year behind AO Men's Final day.BTW, I think maybe you still owe the Missus.

Never ceases to amaze me how some people have to **** on other people's parade for no reason. Yeah, that's an awesome gift even though your not in London anymore. Who cares how close/far away you are? Geez people.

Going alone. Most of my friends aren't that into tennis. It's why I joined a forum. :)

Yes, one for the 4th round and one for the quarterfinal, both day tickets on two consecutive days. I was thinking of getting the night sessions too since I'll be there.

Brutally beautiful gift. Have you been to the Aussie Open before?

Yeah I went in '06 and '09, so I guess I go every three years. :)

The difference now though is that we have kids. Since our little boy was born two years ago, my days of tennis tournament globe trotting are over. That's what makes this gift so special. I wondered when I'd ever get to a grand slam again.
