It’s championship weekend at the Australian Open.If you haven’t been paying attention, you missed a couple of great matches this week.

On the court, we had the defence of Andy Murray against the shot-making of Novak Djokovic.

And in the stands, we had the steely demeanor of Murray’s girlfriend Kim Sears against the serious intensity of Djokovic’s girlfriend Jelena Ristic.

Both were must-see match-ups.
