The draw for the Australia-Chinese Tapei zonal qualifying tie was held in a rather unusual place, the zoo. The Melbourne Zoo specifically. And in such a the setting it’s no surprise that the players weren’t the only ones in attendance.
As evident in the video below, the organizers actually used elephants to help select the draw pairings.
Think I am making this up? Well, have a look for yourselves! (That baby elephant is a charmer!)
(Paced by trunk-slamming wins from Bernard Tomic and Peter Luzcak plus “elephant karma” Australia leads 2-0.)
