Siri shares her 2019 Australian Open experience

Australian Open 2019 coin toss

Naomi Osaka and Novak Djokovic were not the only winners at Australian Open 2019 – so were the 1500 ANZ Tennis Hot Shots kids who played at Melbourne Park.

Meet Siri, a lucky ANZ Tennis Hot Shots player who hit at Rod Laver Arena as part of an ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Kids on Court experience.

The seven-year-old, who plays regularly at Fitzroy Tennis Club in Victoria, was also lucky enough to complete the coin toss before a second round match between Roger Federer and Daniel Evans.

Siri shares her thoughts on her Australian Open experience:
