Australian Open Tennis 2010 To Start Soon

Sunday, December 13th, 2009

Once again as we wind down to the end of the year and most people are thinking about Christmas or how they are going to spend their New Year’s Eve celebrations. But what the end of the year means for some of us is that we are quickly bearing down on the next Grand Slam tennis tournament.

That’s right, January means the Australian Open will be upon us and the first Slam of the year will be decided. Who will be able to get themselves up after their brief rest? IT’s not like the tennis professional ever really gets a holiday so it shouldn’t be too difficult for them to put their best foot forward.

If you will recall, Rafael Nadal outlasted Roger Federer to win the 2009 Australian Open tennis tournament in the men’s competition and Serena Williams is the women’s defending champion. I’m sure both of them will be very keen to come back and defend their crowns.

As usual we can expect it to be another hot tournament with January temperatures in Melbourne usually skyrocketing. Even though the tournament exercises its extreme heat policy and there is a retractable roof over the Rod Laver Arena, players are going to suffer and only the fit will survive.

So from 18 – 31 January 2010 the Australian Open tennis tournament will once again take place and all eyes will be glued to the television for another two weeks. As an Australian I can only rue the fact that there is no longer a legitimate Australian chance in either the Men’s or Women’s draws. Still, we all like watching good tennis no matter who is playing.
