The move from 14 sessions in previous years allows us to increase the quality of matches played and guarantees you and your guests will experience the world’s best tennis every time you enter the doors of Pat Rafter Arena. “Highlights of the 2019 schedule include moving every finals match from quarters through to the final onto Pat Rafter Arena for the first time. A combination of Round 1 and 2 across the first three days will also see the top seeded players hit the court earlier than ever before.
Plus, arguably the most exciting change of the week comes with combining the men’s and women’s finals into an explosive tournament-first double-header to close the event. “Family favourite McDonald’s® Kids’ Tennis Day will return to the Brisbane International again in 2019. This special event will launch the week’s action when it hits Pat Rafter Arena on Sunday 30 December. A star-studded line-up of players and your favourite kid’s entertainment will join in for a fun-filled day before the tennis action gets underway on Monday.
Kids 16 and under go free on McDonald’s® Kids’ Tennis Day so bring the whole family to celebrate the opening of the tournament.” – Cameron Pearson, Tournament Director
