Anyone for tennis?

Whilst in Brisbane we attended three sessions at the Brisbane International Tennis tournament. Amongst the name players we saw were Angelique Kerber, Rafael Nadal, Stan Wawrinka and Milos Raonic.


  1. I watched some of that tournament. They're not showing us much on television. Now they're showing the Sydney tourney, but they're also putting the AO Qualifications on. Jeez. I would much rather watch real tournament play on tv instead of quals with unknowns. Quals are ok if there's nothing else to show, but there usually is. /rant

    1. When I was growing up each of the six Australian states had a week long tournament with one of them in turn each year doubling as the Australian Open. In those years Australia was so often the Davis Cup holder that I assumed the Davis Cup Challenge Round (the final) commencing on Boxing Day was an annual event. Effectively seven weeks of summer with wall to wall tennis coverage on the Channel 7 network.
