There has been no enriching of colour here.. no need, Perth Arena is that dynamic shade of blue! Any keen tennis fans will know that the Hopman Cup is being played out in Perth this week, walking past on Wednesday we stopped to see if there was any action happening on the practice courts to the side of the arena, it's pretty cool that the public can watch the players warm up, and I do mean warm up, at 39C it must have been a wee bit of a shock for some..
As luck would have it top-ranked Ukrainian tennis player Alexandr Dolgopolov walked out on court to begin limbering up! He went on to beat our own Lleyton Hewitt yesterday 4-6 6-3 6-4, a close match. One of my favourite moments so far was between Lleyton Hewitt and America's Jack Sock, that's sportsmanship for you oui!
Couldn't resist this last many angled shot of the arena as we left. Whatever you think of the arena it really is an extraordinary building and dare I say it.. yes I'm going to live dangerously :) Perth's iconic entertainment equivalent to the Opera House! I'll be going now :) happy Friday, take care and stay safe... p.s. has anyone been watching the Hopman Cup?
