Melbourne, Australia, 1 November 2012 |

A poll of potential players to grace the cover of the official Australian Open 2013 program is now live on Facebook.

The poll will appear on the Australian Open Facebook page from 1-7 November, with the top four players – and ultimate cover stars – being announced on 8 November.

The program goes to print next month, and will feature two men and two women on the cover. The program will be available for purchase mid-December at newsagents and via the App Store.

There was a big response from fans as to who they felt should be featured on the cover. From these nominations, a shortlist of eight male and eight female players has been created for fans to vote on.

The Australian Open has long been regarded as the People’s Slam, or the “Happy Slam” as Roger Federer affectionately proclaimed it in 2007. And in 2013 we are putting the fan firmly in the front seat.
