If you think you have a busy schedule, think again. Russian-born Australian Arina Rodionova has her Australian Open playoffs semifinal on Saturday, the same day as her wedding ceremony! And, she’s going to make it!
Rodionova’s opponent Storm Sanders and tournament organizers agreed to move the match from the initially planned afternoon hours to 9 in the morning, so that the 26-year-old Rodionova can be on time for her wedding which starts at 4 p.m. Luckily, we can exclude the risk of rain delays! And that’s not all, if Rodionova wins the semifinal, she will be back on court for the final on Sunday.
