Miss World Oceania Raises Australian Open Trophy!

For many sports fans, the year 2014 didn’t begin until the world’s elite tennis players descended upon Melbourne for the first Grand Slam Event of the year, the 2014 Australian Open. It has been an unusual tournament, marked by intense heat, and the surprise defeat of Men's title holder Novak Djokovic in the Quarter-Finals, who was going for his fourth straight victory in the Men's Singles. One thing that hasn’t changed is the excitement delivered by the players, and Miss World Oceania Erin Holland was there last week to witness the action for herself, and have the chance to meet some of the sport’s greatest icons.
