It's a great event and it's only 3 hours up the road from our place. The APIA INTERNATIONAL TENNIS event in Sydney.
We've seen Kvitova, Dokic (got cleaned up by Bartoli), Bartoli, Kuznotsova, Dulgheru and Li Na. In the blokes, we've seen Baghdatis, Del Potro (top seed), Kubot, Ebden (best young Aussie talent), Benneteau, Troiki (who beat Hewitt), Lleyton, Niemenen, Feeney (another young Aussie), Seppi and of course the Bryan brothers (most fun to watch).
Here are a couple of shots:
Mike and Bob Bryan are great doubles players. They usually win!!! They did today.
These 2 blokes sure win the crowds. Characters for sure.
These 2 people really enjoyed the tennis, even from way back in the stands.
Here's Matthew Ebden (right) serving to Baghdatis (left). It was a 3 set match with Ebden losing the tie breaker at the finish. A top game. Hope to see a lot more of this young bloke.
Even this Aussie contingent couldn't get him over the line. That's Dokic out, Stosur out, Hewitt out and Ebden out.
Trivia question: One player comes from AHO. What country is that? I know PAK, AUT, USA, CYP, but I don't know AHO. Please help me.
