Melbourne Heat Becomes A Major Concern For The Open

Today wasn’t the first time and it probably won’t be the last when the excruciating Melbourne heat became a major issue at the Australian Open. Tennis Australia and tournament supremo Craig Tiley put the entire tournament’s medical staff on high alert but once again the organizers of the calendar’s first Grand Slam event stand accused of forcing players to compete in ‘inhumane conditions’.


Speed Of The Courts Becomes A Major Topic At Melbourne

The biggest debate of the Australian Open so far centers on the speed of the courts laid at Melbourne Park. World no.1 Rafael Nadal insists they are much faster and believes the change is not a good thing while defending champion Novak Djokovic maintains the change is minimal.


Murray No Longer Fears Coach Lendl

Andy Murray no longer fears the wrath of iron-man coach Ivan Lendl, with the Scot having gained valuable confidence in his own game under the regime of the former grand slam tough guy. After two years together and success through Wimbledon and US Open titles, the pair has jelled into a smooth working unit.



Murray Wins First Round Match In Australian Heat

Fears that Wimbledon champion Andy Murray might wither in the intense Melbourne heat after insufficient match practice in between his September 29 back surgery and the Australian Open proved ill-founded as the Scot required just 87 minutes to dispense of first round opponent Go Soeda.
