Australia's Open

2 x 45 / 1 x 90 HD
Broadcaster:  ABC,  ESPN

Every January, the Australian Open commands global attention, but when off-court drama steals the show, Australia itself becomes part of the spectacle.


Going inside some of the tournament’s most memorable moments, including Serena and Venus Williams’ last Grand Slam final and unexpected comebacks from Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, Australia's Open charts the tournament's trajectory from a suburban tennis club to the biggest annual sporting event in the southern hemisphere. It counterpoints irresistible on-court drama with the nation’s off-court divisions as they are unintentionally revealed to the world. In recent years the Australian Open becomes a stage for the nation’s same sex marriage debate, confronting treatment of refugees, and a complex relationship to its colonial past.


Through compelling archive and lyrical tennis, Australia's Open captures the poetry of the tournament as well as its power...because at the Australian Open, there is always more than a game at stake.
