Records tumbled both on and off court at Melbourne Park during
this year's Australian Open tennis tournament.
For the 14 days of the event dedicated shuttle trams ran between
the city and Melbourne Park, and when Yarra Trams ended its
tournament in the early hours of Monday morning a new high mark had
been set for tram travel to the event.
By the time the epic six hour men's singles final finished, the
longest Grand Slam final ever and longest match in Australian Open
history, more than 400,000 people had travelled to and from the
tournament on a Yarra Trams service.
The record figure was an 8% increase on the previous highest
number set last year and included the three highest days tram
travel to an Australian Open since shuttle services began in
The tournament itself enjoyed a record crowd with more than
700,000 enjoying the tennis.
