By telling you this, I risk alienation from my Melbourne hosts. I’m desperate for something new to talk about so I’m going to risk it. If you don’t have a ticket for tonight’s final between Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray I have great news for you. Head straight for the Sofitel hotel in Melbourne. Look like you know what you’re doing, go to the elevator and hit floor 35. Walk around the floor acting like you’re just checking out the scene and enter the restroom. If you’re pee shy, don’t worry about the floor to ceiling window. Instead, look out and you can clearly see Rod Laver Arena and the rest of Melbourne park.
You can thank me later.
