After three weeks and thousands of entries, the Live Like a Player competition is creeping closer to crowning a winner.

Live Like a Player will give one lucky fan the ultimate Australian Open 2013 experience including VIP tickets to both the men’s and women’s final, three nights’ accommodation at the official player hotel, first-class dining at top-notch Melbourne restaurants and much, much more.

Seven finalists have been announced and have each posed for a photo in their finest tennis attire in an attempt to draw your vote. Now it’s up to you to choose who gets to live like royalty at Melbourne Park in January.

The public have until 13 December to vote for their favourite finalist, and when the clock strikes 5pm a winner will be crowned.

Anne Paul has raced to an early lead in the polls with her Rafael Nadal-eque headband and fluorescent attire proving to be a crowd favourite.

Youngster Sylvia Cadena – whose resemblance of a young Roger Federer is rather uncanny – has gathered a healthy amount of votes too, as has Norm Booth with his rock-climber-meets-tennis-player combo.

With only six days left to vote, head to http://livelikeaplayer.com.au/ and help one lucky fan live like the world’s best tennis players in January!
