The surprisingly low price tickets to Ash Barty’s semi-final are going for online…
Tickets for Thursday afternoon’s Australian Open women’s semi-finals are going for just $70, Shane McInnes has revealed.
That’s right, you can watch Ash Barty’s bid to make the final on Rod Laver Arena for $70.
3AW sports reporter McInnes observed the ticket price online on Wednesday afternoon.
Not only does that $70 ticket include Barty’s clash with Sofia Kenin, you also get to watch Simona Halep do battle with Garbiñe Muguruza for a spot in the final.
It’s unclear why the day session tickets are so cheap.
“You wouldn’t even get a ticket to Rod Laver Arena for that price for a first round match, let alone a semi-final,” McInnes explained.
“I’m bewildered by it, totally.
“I’m yet to hear the reason why.”
Conversely, tickets for the night session – where Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer will do battle – start at $400 per ticket.
