Muscles - the Story of Ken Rosewall


Ken Rosewall is known as one of Australia’s greatest tennis players. When he was 17 years of age, Ken was selected to play for the Australian Davis Cup team travelling with Davis Cup captain and coach Hary Hopman. This kick-started his career playing amateur, professional and open tennis. In 1953 he won his first Grand Slam title in the Australian Open Singles tournament and then went on to win 17 more titles during his career of over 30 years.

“Muscles” not only highlights Ken’s fantastic playing career but also tells the story of his life away from tennis – growing up, marrying his wife Wilma and raising a wonderful family.

Opening dates: 5th January 2011 – 30th November 2011.
