FORMER Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel was spotted in the stands at the Australian Open on Friday.
The German coach, 49, was sacked by the Blues back in September and has been out of work since.
He has recently been linked with replacing Spurs manager Antonio Conte if the Italian departs the North London club.
But for the time being the ex-Paris Saint-Germain boss is continuing to enjoy some well-earned time off.
And he appeared inside the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne to watch Stefano Tsitsipas' semi-final victory over Karen Khachanov.
Tuchel, who won the Champions League with Chelsea in 2021, was also seen at Thursday's women's semi-final which saw Jelena Rybakina defeat Victoria Azarenka.

"This is my fourth Grand Slam, I've been to all four tournaments now."
Tsitsipas will play nine-time Australian Open winner Novak Djokovic in Sunday's men's final.
And Rybakina will take on Aryna Sabalenka in the women's final on Saturday.
