There is just as much happening off the court as on the court at the Australian Open tennis in Melbourne.

Nicole Kidman, 51, and Keith Urban, 51, reportedly attended the women’s semi-finals on Wednesday.

Iconic American Vogue editor Anna Wintour, 69, was spotted in the stands at the Australian Open several times this week.

In a rare event, Anna went sunglasses-free while watching her close friend Roger Federer, 37, take on Greek sensation Stefanos Tsitsipas, 20. 

Days later she went sans her signature shades again as she witnessed a match between Australia’s Ash Barty and Czech Petra Kvitová.
