Nowhere in the article is there a quote that mentions Sydney. I think we can rely on Mario's quote rather than speculation from this writer as to the "obvious starting point," as it was called by the writer.
Until she or Mario talk about Sydney, I am not getting my hopes up.
"Men's tennis and women's tennis are almost two separate sports. If I was to play Andy Murray I would
lose 6-0, 6-0 in five to six minutes, maybe 10 minutes." -- Serena Williams
