Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer

Tennis hopeful Connor McEvoy from Sunshine Coast, was part of a once in a lifetime experience when he stepped onto Rod Laver Arena for the pre-match coin toss at the 2020 Australian Open.

Connor McEvoy aged 10 was selected to flip the ANZ Commemorative Coin to commence the semi final match between Federer and Djokovic.

The 2020 ANZ Commemorative Coin features former World No. 1 and 14-time Grand Slam Champion, Evonne Goolagong-Cawley AC on the ‘heads’ side, while the tails side features an engraved tennis ball alongside the ANZ logo.

Connor is among 180 lucky ANZ Tennis Hot Shot players given the opportunity to flip the coin and rub shoulders with some of the world’s best tennis players.

Evonne Goolagong Cawley said: “The coin toss at the beginning of an Australian Open match is always a special moment and I feel privileged to be involved and see the joy on the kids’ faces as they experience this rare opportunity.”

Commenting on the initiative, ANZ Managing Director Retail Banking Katherine Bray says: “We are proud to support grassroots tennis through the ANZ Tennis Hot Shots program across Australia.

Seeing the next generation of ANZ Tennis Hot Shots tennis stars meet world class players through the ANZ Coin Crew is one of the reasons we are involved.”

ANZ Tennis Hot Shots is Tennis Australia’s official development program with a record 702,509 children between 3 and 12 years of age playing ANZ Tennis Hot Shots in 2018/19.

ANZ Tennis Hot Shots use smaller courts, lighter racquets, lower nets and low compression balls making it suitable for children of all abilities.
