Australian Tennis Open 2008

I had a great time today at the Australian Tennis Open 2008 with Andrew and my sister Kara.   Found out my serve speed is 127 kph, on his second attempt Andrew managed to get a serve at 160 kph but I say his average speed when trying to hit hard is 140 kph. With a ground pass you can just walk between matches whenever you want.

Some of the matches I enjoyed were Akiko Morigami beat Michella Krajicek 6-2, 6-2 (watched the first set), Janko Tipsarevic defeat Joseph Sirianni (Aus) 7-5, 6-2, 6-7, 0-6, 6-0 and Fabrice Santoro defeated John Isner 6-2, 6-2 & 6-4. Both Andrew and Kara however thought watching Justin Henin and Nadal practising up close was worth the entry fee.   Last year I missed the Aus Open for only the second time since it was moved to Melbourne Park (in 1988).   Most people rarely get a chance to see a Grand Slam event and I get to do it every year!
