|Can you tell that it is summer here? So hot!|
Woohoo-my computer is FINALLY fixed! I'm not even going to go into the things I had to do to get it to work; I'm just happy it does. Anyway, back to the blogging. For two weeks in January, the Australian Open was the focus of Melbourne and much of the world. Zack's dad and stepmom flew into town and enjoyed several days of tennis. I joined them on Tuesday of the first week with a grounds pass, which allows you to see several matches on various courts throughout the day.
|Dokic (Australian) and her Russian opponent wore the same outfit! The Aussie won.|
|Some of these serves are around 200 km/hour (123 miles/hour)!|
|Lleyton Hewitt wins his match after nearly four hours!|
Overall, the Australian Open was pretty cool, and it was a neat to be a part of the action. I'm glad Melbourne hosts such a major event and that tickets weren't too difficult to get. I've definitely learned to understand and appreciate tennis much more.
