Yes Jo. And I've been looking forward to this since the end of the summer. The players say it is one of their favourite tournaments.  Good luck to all the Brits (and there are very few) in it.

Looking forward to it! Best of luck to Andy and the other Brits - I think he and Heather Watson are both playing on day 1.

I could never get into the Australian Open on TV. Conditioning as a child / teenager. We only had 4 TV stations back then and in January, one would show the tennis and another cricket all day and there was nothing worthwhile to watch on the other 2 channels. Needless to say I don't watch cricket either.

But I do wish Leyton Hewitt the best of luck and any other Aussies in it. I have friends flying down to Melbourne to watch some matches courtside at the end of the week.

There's quite a few Aussies in the draw Margi.
Only ones I recognise are Tomic and Stosur.
 
Heather Watson won her first round match.
So it's Murray, Baker and Robson tomorrow.

Good win for Murray and Robson. Baker out. 
 
Murray and Tomic are in the same half of the draw...
so they could meet if both get to the semis.

And now Laura's beaten Kvitova, tooClapSounds like a pretty error-strewn match, but you can only beat what's put up in front of you.
 
I can't remember the last time I've been so hopeful about British women's tennis - Wade and Barker in the mid 1970s, most likely!

Ginny & Sue had you on the edge of your seats didn't they Bambi?... for all the wrong reasons too. When they were good they were excellent but on a bad day they were excruciating As were mark Cox and Roger Taylor. We have suffered for our sport over the years haven't weBig%20smile

Great news for Murray. He won't have to play Del Potro in a potential QF.
