    Alright I just got back from my trip to the Australian Open in Melbourne. I live in Sydney and this is the first time I've attended the Australian Open so I was super excited and took lots of photos so I'll upload them in a few batches.

    Also managed to get the free Rafa Armada bandana from the Nike Store.

    I've been in Rod Laver Arena 3 times today, for Rally for Relief, Day 1 and Day 4.

    Without further adieu. Here are the photos:

    I don't know whether or not to use the bandana. Seems a bit of a waste if I don't, but seems a bit of a waste if I do. Decisions decisions decisions.

    thanks for the info mate, i assume the nike store is in Melbourne Park? if not, mind to tell me/us which nike store did you get it from and perhaps how did you get it for free?

    I'm going there for semi-finals on Thursday.

    Cheers!

    No, it was a promo on the Nike Tennis Facebook page in which you had to print a digital copy of the bandana and bring it into either the Chadstone, Doncaster or Chapel St Nike Store. Only valid 22nd and 23rd January.

    I originally went to the Doncaster Nike Store but they had no idea what the promotion was about and did not have the bandanas. I called the Chapel St store and they confirmed they had it and I rushed there to redeem one.

    How did you get the Armada bandana, I would like to pick one up also even though I am not a *******.

    Can we confirm that Nadal uses 25.5kg tension now?

    Nice pictures by the way!

    Amazing how he gets so much spin with a 15 gauge. Imagine him playing with a 18 gauge!
