After heat and rain delays play went late into the night on Day 4 of the 2014 Australian Open. Enjoy these pictures from selected Day 4 matches.
The Monfils v Simon match was moved to Hisense Arena at the end of the scheduled sessions, and any ticket holders were allowed in to what is usually a Tickets Only venue. That match was played with the roof closed due to rain. But when the rain stopped and play resumed on the outside courts there was literally a Tennis Smorgasborg of top players to watch; Del Potro, Simon, Cilic, Lopez, Dimitrov, Verdasco and Raonic. The huge match of night turned out to be Nick Kyrgios versus Benoit Paire, a five setter on Margaret Court Arena which had Nick cramping in the final stages, massive home crowd cheering and Benoit ultimately winning.
Let the pictures tell the story…
Until next time
