Thought I'd start a thread for those interested in the Aussie tennis Open.Lindsay Davenport barely raised a sweat beating Aussie Casey Dellacqua 6-2 6-1.Gaudio through after Sabau pulled out in the 2nd set.Of the women's seeds Dementieva (9) is in big trouble losing the 1st set 7-5 & down a break in the 2nd.

Should the courts be speeded up - as per Hewitt's request - do you think ?
I would speed them up not because of Hewitt but I reckon we slowed them down to please the Clay courters which is wrong.

Re: Aust Open Tennis

Ahhhhhhhh, I have fond memories of the Aussie Open when we sponsored the entire event. Corporate boxes, VIP fully catered marquees, an unlimited supply of food & drink, and an unlimited supply of tickets everyday for the whole family & friends.

These days we're pumping the moula in motor racing, and doing a fine job kicking the Generals arse around the circuits!

In other results Nalbandian won but took him 5 sets,previous finalist Schuttler continued his demise & lost & Bjorkman after winning the 1st set only won 3 games after that & was bundled out.

Re: Aust Open Tennis

In fact i have followed tennis for a long time and it is interesting to note the demise of tennis in Sweden of last 5 - 10 years.


The glory days where they dominated the top 20 in the 80s and 90's

Bjorn Borg

Matts Wilander

Stefan Edberg

Joachim Nystrom

Kent Carlsson

Mikael Pernfors

Anders Jarryd

that was a spectacular crop of gun tennis players.

Re: Aust Open Tennis

The Nalbandian match was a corker for Day 1, was there and the young Thai really made him work. :clap
