When the wind and snow are blowing and going outside is either impossible or a real risk, we have the Australian Tennis Open from Melbourne, Australia.
With respect and sorrow for the folks and animals large and small who have suffered through the terrible conditions in Queensland, it is good to see the tennis open in Melbourne.
I have to ask where are the American players both women and men as we seem to be rather out of current stars in any numbers. Doesn't seem to be much depth on the American side.
But the tournament is a relief and does those of us who are snow bound some good to see the athletes playing and implementing the hours upon hours of training and practice in perfecting their skills.
To the folks "down under", thank you.
God bless you in your recovery in Queensland and Brisbane.
