At 11:59pm on Friday night, the entire state of Victoria went into a snap five-day lockdown.
And during the Australian Open match between Novak Djokovic and American Taylor Fritz, the rest of the world watched it live.
Midway through the match, fans were escorted out of the Rod Laver Arena at 11.30pm, to make it home in time for the Stage 4 restrictions to kick in.
Just finished watching last nights @AustralianOpen At 11:30 PM smack dab in the middle of the fourth set on Rod Laver, all the fans were kicked out as Melbourne is back on full lockdown for five days. Crazy.— Dan Osborne (@LaziestofDans) February 12, 2021
