Blog written by: Serena Huang
Hey guys! I am Serena from China. I am a University of Melbourne student, studying for my Masters degree. I am here to share some of my stories.
I have several favourite teams and sports people, which is why I attend to so many sports activities. I am a great fan of my hometown team, Guangzhou Evergrande. I really hope they come to Melbourne again (the last time they came wass in 2014 and I watched the match on TV). At the same time I also love Chelsea in the English Premiere League. After I came to Melbourne, I also began supporting Melbourne Victory FC. As for tennis, I have been a Djokovic fan for 10 plus years.
Best Sporting Memory
As for my favourite sporting memory, it’s definitely the Australian Open this year.
This was my first time watching a tennis grand slam. I got to see all the great tennis stars for the first time and I even got Djokovic’s hat!
SportsHosts helped me to connect with so many Aussies and people from around the world that loves sports just as much as I do. I met AJ at an Aussie football game, Chris and Lachlan at Melbourne Victory game and lovely Kim at F1. These amazing people shared their own perspective of Melbourne with me.
