The state of Australian Tennis

Jessica Moore
While Rafa and Fed battled it out on Centrecourt at The Championships, in Australia the wonderfully patriotic Channel Nine commentary team* kept us up to date with the scores of the boys and girls doubles finals, which were important because they happened to feature Australians. And one of them did win giving us an Aussie Champion to go with Sam Stosur in the mixed doubles. Victory is once again rightfully Australia’s even if it is in the events which no one cares about normally. The British too grasped at this lauding the 14 yr old Laura Robson as heir to the great Annabel Croft (dunno, apparently she’s a commentator or something) winning the Girl’s title.

Tomic is the next great Aussie hope but even he had to be disciplined for not trying at the French last year. “Come On” Hewitt, all is forgiven.

*though at least they spared us Tim Henman whose uninsightful BBC commentary was helpfully provided by Foxsports on delay.
