Melbourne and god damn this is the cheapest grand slam

Ok, so I realise Ive started this thread a little on the early side, but lets face it, you know i get bored and have nothing else to do. So here it is...the aus tourneys thread.
We are probably all a little bored right now, as there is not much going on, but i, for one, have a aus open trip to plan.
What dates are the qualies and are they free? They could be an option this time around, oh and another thing.


Who is going?

yeah whatever

Re: Melbourne and god damn this is the cheapest grand slam

I'm trying to convince someone to come with me for a whole week, but otherwise 4 days around 4th round/quarter final time as always.

GO THE AUSSIES!

Also support: Ana Ivanovic| Maria Kirilenko| Misa Krajicek| Marion Bartoli| Jarmila Gajdosova| Lucie Safarova

Re: Melbourne and god damn this is the cheapest grand slam

Re: Melbourne and god damn this is the cheapest grand slam

I'm going for 8 days

I read in yesterday's Courier Mail that Stosur will play at the 2008 Mondial Australian Women's Hardcourt Championships on the Gold Coast, before the tournament is moved to Brisbane in 2009. Hopefully she's fit, healthy and raring to go

Alicia Molik you would think. Men's will be interesting, if the Scud isn't playing then it will be interesting, hewitt and guccione will be in adelaide (guccione has to try and limit the damage), maybe luzcak or alun jones or healey.

GO THE AUSSIES!

The Dokic fans in the Dokic forum are trying to press for her to be selected...I think this is impossible.

I would love to see Casey or Jessica Moore play instead of Alicia, seeing it is their hometown...
