Melbourne Park might be the buzzing heart and soul of the grand slam action right now, but come 11am on Sunday, January 29, it'll be all eyes on the CBD as Bourke Street Mall becomes a lively tennis hub of its own.

It's all thanks to the inaugural Match in the Mall — a doubles tennis match played right there in front of Myer, featuring some of the game's greats. Nab yourself a free ticket to see former world number one Ash Barty and Jim Courier, as well as Alicia Molik and Casey Dellacqua, battle it out for glory in a somewhat unlikely arena.

After that, you'll also catch Myer Ambassador Kris Smith showing off some racquet skills of his own as he hits the court, going up against more Aussie tennis legends.

There are limited spots to see the debut Match in the Mall, with free tickets available online. But even if you miss out, there's no need to smash a racquet — you can catch the livestream over on the Myer Facebook page.
