The tennis carnival has arrived in town

The carnival is here … or that’s what it feels like at the Australian Open.

Today is the first day of competition, and the atmosphere here is …electric? exciting and truly carnival like. There were so many matches going on today it was difficult to decide which one to attend.

I like coming here in the early days of the games because it feels much more casual, there is still that spirit of sports-personship, unlike the atmosphere towards the finals … when the tension in the air is as if the players were in war.

And for those of us who has to work, I like keeping a window open on my desktop with the lastest scores of the games in progress. Check out the Australian Open website!

    Uh oh…I’m headed down there in 2 days to catch the last of it, and I expected it would be as electric as it seems on tele.

    All of the flag waving, singing, and even drumming I saw a few days ago when Bhagatis was playing.

    I’m looking forward to it. The Aussies really take sport fanaticism to another level!
