So went to the Australian Open yesterday! Was grand fun! My sisters came down to go with me as well as do some serious shopping which we made a start on Wednesday and will continue today!
But the Aus Open was great. We went and sat in Margaret Court and saw two of our Australian mens players. James Duckworth who unfortunately went down in four sets to ninth seeded Serbian, Janko Tipsarevic. Then we saw Matthew Ebden who went down in an exciting five set battle against Japanese Kei Nishikori. Then we were excited to be in the crowd for the exciting Gael Monfils! Who managed a comfortable looking scoreline of win in four sets against the Brazilian, Thomaz Bellucci. But the tennis in this match was just fantastic! Both players were great to watch! Love the Australian Open! Bit sad that our Australian womens singles players are all out already. Stosur didn't get through the first round which was more depressing because she had a lot of hopes pinned on her after winning the US Open. And Dokic and Dellacqua both lost in the last couple of days. So Australia's hopes are all hanging on Hewitt and Tomic! Will be keen to see them through!
Bonus, hardly even got sunburnt! Except for this patch on my upper leg. One of my sisters wasn't so lucky though! Terrible back sunburn isn't going to be much fun for her for the next few days! Hopefully it doesn't hinder her shopping ability today!
