TENNIS STARS TAKE ON AUCKLAND

TENNIS STARS TAKE ON AUCKLAND

All eyes have been on centre court this week with a superstar line up thrilling fans at the Heineken Open. But off the court, some of the game's biggest names have been out and about experiencing the best of Auckland City.

On the first day of the Heineken Open, defending champion and world number 3, David Ferrer, spent his day off climbing the Auckland Harbour Bridge with trainer Rafael Garcia, and enjoyed one of the best vantage points of the city.

While on Day 2, the winners of the Heineken Rooftop Apartment were treated to a friendly photo and tennis tips with Horacio Zeballos, the Argentinian who also took to the mini-court with Martin Colenbrander in a table tennis match at the Moet & Chandon Lounge.

 

Tuesday also  saw 6 ft 10 American super-server, John Isner, hit the Auckland Harbour and take to the helm of an America's Cup yacht to sail the Auckland harbour with his girlfriend and coach.
