Great arena! Clean, safe, lots to see and do. Loved seeing today's tennis pros compete. Especially appreciated the water fans on such a warm, summer day!

A great venue to view tennis. This is something all tennis fans should do at least once. The stadiums are world class.

The Australian Open is so well done, if I could come every year I would. Beautiful venue, great volunteer staff, great vibe in the whole city for the event. The whole place is spotless, great food, great seats everywhere, such friendly people.

We saw the Australian Open men's and women's finals so the stadium and grounds were packed. Our seats were near the top, but the arena is not large and so all seats are very good. Our matches were at night but if you get day seats, 1/2 are in the sun. Try to avoid these!
