YES, it was a very long off-season and the Australian Open starts late this year (last year: on 13 January).
I just checked out Yahoo and there were some new pics. When I saw them, I immediately felt the thrill again. It's great that after following tennis intensively since the Australian 1999, I still feel so excited about a Grand Slam coming up.
15 days to go.
2000-2007: My "Kim years". My best years as a tennis fan. A few bitter losses but a lot of great matches and great wins. Thank you, Kim Clijsters!
