That is not true...I am I go once a year lol I just was wondering if anyone else was going to meet up if interested I've already got 2 ppl that want too! I've already met up with @oztennisfan in 2016 he can prove it!!
That's very cool!

I live in Norway, so it's an extremely huge undertaking to travel to Australia for the Open.

The Australian Open is such a phenomenal tournament to watch :notworthy: even though it messes with my sleep patterns :alien:

is this expensive place to go if you live in USA ?
Actually it is not that expensive if you live in the USA.

Many of the best seats in Rod Laver Arena and Margaret Court Arena are purchased by International Tour Operators. These seats are then bundled into Holiday Tour Packages and are effectively included for very low cost as part of the deal. (Of course the cost of a Tour isn't cheap, but it does include International Airfares, Luxury Accommodation in Melbourne, Transfers, and various other extras.)

It is actually very expensive to purchase decent seats if you live in Australia. The ones that aren't purchased for use in Packages are usually only available for people directly associated with Tennis Australia (eg. Business Partners, sponsors, Players, Coaches, invited Celebrities etc.)

My family and I have been going for years now and the seats only got really expensive since this year and we have got decent seats every year! Like ones down the bottom at RLA on the angle in the shade and also MCA only about 5 rows back also when Hisense was called Vodaphone Arena we got seats there for a few years and sat in the first few rows at end of the court..they are easy to get if you know how to get them, we don't get packages either we just buy tickets!

I nearly went this year but piked out. I don't mind it but prefer what it once was. For me it's become considerably worse over the years. But better for general public.
Regarding tickets as regestered Tennis AO you get 2nd crack at the tickets before they're released to public.
