Tennis in Melbourne

Australian Open at Melbourne Park.

The tennis started on the 14/1/2013 and will finish on the 27/1/2013.

Over the last 12 days I have been watching the tennis with great enjoyment. I have watched the tennis during the day and at night. There  have been some good matches. Some have been short matches and others have been long matches. For both men and women.

Some matches have lasted well into the night. I liked the match between Federer (swiss) and Tsonga (french). It went for several hours  with the last set a tie-break. The final set went to the tie-break and the score was 13-11 to Federer. The match finished after mid-night. I really enjoyed the game.

After Federer played Tsonga he went onto play Andy Murray. Unfortunately in that match Roger Federer lost to Andy Murray who went on to play Novak Djokovic in the final of the Australian Open. In that match between Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic, Djokovic won the final. When Djokovic finished celebrating his win he flew out of Australia at 4 am on Sunday to fulfill his commitments with the Serbian tennis team for the Davis Cup Tie.

In the doubles matches Australia is into the semi-finals. The ladies names are Casey Delaqua and Asha Barty. I hope they do well. Also there are mixed doubles into the finals. I hope they win the finals as the young players are always improving and should go along way in both playing in tournaments and in the world rankings.

I have really enjoyed watching the tennis, which i watched all day and late into the night.

I look forward to playing my golf again with my friends on a Wednesday. The golf days start on Wednesday the 29th January as my foot is getting better every day.
