Tennis Australia turned Australian Open into ‘wake-up celebration’


Commentator Steve Price said Tennis Australia turned the Australian Open into a “wake-up celebration” after introducing “mob ticket” prices on the tournament’s First Nations Day.

Tennis Australia offered First Nations people a $10 discount on ground passes on the third day of the international tournament.

“To make matters worse, Tennis Australia boss Craig Tiley admitted … there was no review to see if you were in fact Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander,” Price said.

“Absolute insanity – it would be funny if tennis ticket prices were split by race and it wasn’t so serious.”
