Help Needed with Australian Open Results and Record Book

Hello fellow Blasters.

I need your help to realize a project I hope to complete over the rest of this year and 2016. By the end of that time I would like to have all possible results for all of the slams. In addition to this I want to create a record book for each slam and then a fifth record book for all slams combined.


First up is the Australian Open (hoping to complete this part by January 1)

The Aussie results are: https://www.tennisforum.com/108-grand...lian-open.html

The help I need is:

1. People to contribute any missing results
2. Help with some names that are still missing
3. Spell checking or checking the Encyclopedia for consistency. I freely admit my typing can be a horror and would fell better with other eyes on it.
4. Issues with formatting.
5. A summary of that year's event.
6. Suggestions for what to put in the record book.

I thank anyone in advance who can pitch in. So many people have contributed over the years to our Aussie results. GeeTee, Andrew Tas, and Louloubelle are 3 who I wish to thank in particular for their early work. Austinrunner, Chris Whiteside, DavidK, Jimbo and LKK have also helped a lot.

Happy to help out Rollo :-)

PM anything you'd like me to start on.

There's more to life than just being happy.
