^ No. Its just effecting Brisbane. Western Australia is actually experiencing Bush Fires. This country and its weather.

Re: Brisbane International venue under water due to Australian floods.

My town Toowoomba has been struck violently as well we have had 10 fatalities and about 80 people still missing Yes it is heading to NSW and possibly Victoria within the next week so we may not get an Australian Open at all.

Re: Brisbane International venue under water due to Australian floods.

That is crazy . It spins me out that there was a tournament there last week. I was in Brissy last week for it, and yeah, it feels surreal just looking at pictures, vids etc. Just thinking of those affected by the floods ; wishing them the best.

Re: Brisbane International venue under water due to Australian floods.

They just showed loads of pics on eurosport - shocking to think a tournament just ended there a few days ago

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

Atleast the Australian Open will probably help to bring more publicity to these disasters.

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?
