Novak and Kim Come Out on Top As the Australian Open Ends
The 2011 Australian Open has come to an end, and what a way to finish the first grand slam tournament of the year. On Saturday night Kim Clijsters beat China’s Li Na to win the women’s title while last night saw Andy Murray take home the runner’s up plate for the second year a row. Novak Djokovic defeated the Scot in straight sets to claim his second grand slam victory (his first was at the Australian Open in 2008). There was no shortage of stars at both matches, with Eric Bana, pregnant Toni Collette and Melissa George (in town to film The Slap) making appearances, as well as expectant Rebecca Twigley (spotted eating an ice cream), Gracie Otto, Erin McNaught and MasterChef’s Matt Preston and father-to-be George Calombaris. Andy Lee seemed to make a young friend and spent the men’s final with Brendan Cowell. Check out all the celebrities who made their way courtside over the weekend, and congrats to Novak and Kim on their wins!
