I always love reports and always do some myself when I am going. I know many of you went there and it is always great to hear YOUR opinion's, also about practising and your experiences with players.
Feel free to share it with us!

Umm... what's there to say? Anastasia played horrifically, and was beaten convincingly. A huge upset. Especially as (from what I'd seen) been hitting so well in practice. Elena is looking good, she's barely missed a shot in practice and the serve is on the up. Raymond/Stubbs joined back together, and were beaten by Stosur/Stewart, the aussie pair in a very good match. Umm.. though mens news, Carlos Moya lost, though he had had barely any sleep having arrived in Sydney that morning. There are the biggest upsets and an update on the improvement of the world's most famous serve.
Personally, been a good experience, seen a lot of players, got a photo with Elena and one with Todd Woodbridge (who is friendly beyond belief) Haven't really seen any really high profile matches as it is early days, but hopefully I will soon. Oh, I also picked up the guide to professional tennis and had it signed by Lindsay because I was in the first 40 in the line at fanfest, so that was cool. Umm.... that's probably all that's reasonably significant for me. Hope to hear what others have been doing, and I hope that this is the kind of thing you wanted Crazillo.

Yep, thanx m8. :)
All the reports came after my post here so thanx anyways to everybody who posted something.
That thing with Lindsay is cool. Is the guide good?

The guide is awesome - prizeidiot you must have been standing right near me when you got the book ;)

Yeah, must have... I was about 20th I think... umm... today... not many upsets. Joachim Johansson had to pull out with injury. Dementieva was almost beaten, but scraped through despite playing horribly, then proceded to play a fantastic doubles match against Penetta/Schiavone. 7-6 in the third... finished very late
