Andy Murray of Great Britain plays a forehand in his fourth round match against Fernando Verdasco of Spain during day eight of the 2009 Australian Open at Melbourne Park on January 26, 2009 in Melbourne

Comment from Scott Barbour:
“The 2009 Australian Open was the 97th edition of the event, taking place in Melbourne from 19 January 2009. It is the first of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments held each year. The Open takes place at the height of the Australian summer and is famous for its extremely hot days.
Rafael Nadal defeated Roger Federer to win the men’s singles title in 2009. This was Nadal's first hard-court Grand Slam, having previously only won on clay at Roland Garros and grass at Wimbledon. He also became the first Spaniard ever to win the Australian Open.”
