Tennis

We had a good night at the Australian Open (well….except the results could have been better). It was a lovely evening, and being present is always a different (and better) experience to watching it on TV.  The two great Australian “battlers” were playing on the evening that we went.

Lots of support from the crowd but Lleyton couldn’t make it

Hewitt cruised through the first two sets, and we thought it would be an early night, but then something seemed to happen and he lost the next two, before finally capitulating in the fifth.  Stosur went down in straight sets.

Elements of the crown were very supportive of the locals.   At least they were good-natured about it, and almost always positive (although once or twice the umpire’s decisions were “queried”).
