Best Answer

The main arena at Melbourne Park is the Rod Laver Arena, named for the famous Australian tennis player (born August 9, 1938) who won the Australian Open three times during his illustrious tennis career.

A separate smaller arena is the Hisense Arena, whose naming is contracted by HisenseGroup, a Chinese electronics manufacturer. It was formerly the Vodafone Arena.
