Australian Open Marks New Tennis Season

TENNIS-OPEN-AUSAnd the tennis season has begun again with nothing less than a grand slam. Sure everyone recalls last year’s Australian Open with Federer’s tearful acknowledgement of Rafa’s victory. Well no one anticipated the turn of events to come. Rafa went on a title drought, fraught with injury, the King of Clay could not secure a single win after Rome in May. And its been quite a journey ever since for Mr. Federer, who despite predictions that he may never be able to win a grand slam again, went on to win the Wimbledon and French Open back to back. He broke the grand slam record of all time, winning no less than 15. With the dawn of a new decade one begins to wonder if the Federer Nadal days of domination has come to end. Nadal has surged into the third round today with clean 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 match against Slovakian Lukas Lacko. Federer is also through to his next round after defeating Igor Andreev in four sets, 4-6,6-2,7-6,6-0. Del Potro, Murray and Roddick are also through. Robin Soderling lost in five sets to Marcel Granollers in the biggest upset of the tournament so far.
