For most people, Fantasy Tennis is a great way to enjoy the tennis season year-round. It’s free, fun, a great way to test your tennis knowledge against your mates and there’s plenty of prizes to win along the way.
But for Matej Laznik, it just paid for his vacation to Australia and tickets to the 2018 Australian Open men’s final in Melbourne.
In 2017, www.fantasytennisleague.com had 27,261 coaches competing for the top rank in the world, and it was Laznik’s team Roger who won with 14,769.7 total Fantasy Tennis points.
As you can imagine, he is over the moon.
“Being part of the Grand Slam Finals is just magnificent. I hope it is going to be a spectacle like last year. Another great battle with Roger and Rafa will be dreamlike,” he told ausopen.com.
“Visiting Australia is a huge thing for me. Half a year ago, I could not even imagine it. Last year, during Roland Garros, I was talking to my friends that maybe next year we'll go to Paris to watch tennis but now I am going to a Grand Slam final thousands of kilometres away. It is just fantastic.”
