The memorable moments from AO 2013.
This year’s Australian Open created a lot of memorable moments. Some good, some bad, some memorable for other reasons.
Then there were the outfits. Adidas lemon was everywhere you looked during the first week.
And the men’s flourescent shoes, suitable to light up a dance floor as well as a tennis court.
My list of memorable moments is below. Let me know what I missed by leaving a comment or tweeting me @grandslamgal
