Do You Come From a Land Down Under?

If you aren't aware, the Australian Open started this week. This means that I may not answer my phone. Don't take it personally. I just want to see Roger Federer cry like a baby again.

Ask my husband. Tennis is the only sport that I will watch and genuinely enjoy for hours at a time. He will tell you that when a Grand Slam is on he might as well be married to a tennis racquet.

I usually refuse to get up earlier than 7:10am for work - that is until Wimbledon was on in 09' and coverage started at 7:00am. I woke up faithfully at 6:30am to get ready for the day so I could watch as much tennis as possible.

Who knows what surprises the land down under will hold this year? I can't wait to find out.

Bring it on Roger. Maybe this time you will make Rafa cry.

hhmm I have never understood tennis. My in-laws watched wimbledon non-stop while they were here. I was about to go crazy! haha but to each his own I guess.

That's hilarious that you like to watch tennis that much. I like to have it on when I want to take a nap. :)

I have no idea why I like it so much. I never played it in high school. I think it must be that the tournaments include people of all cultures. And culture is something I cannot get enough of.
