I want to know whether this idea about the Australian Open being 'weak' is still holding ground. I mean with the new Vodaphone Arena i'm sure the crowds at Melbourne would rival any of the other slams, does anyone have the numbers?

Also, the field is just as fierce as any other tournament, sure it's true that not every player attends a warm up tournament, but does that really matter? As long as you pull in the stars when it counts.

The only area i see as a disadvantage is money related, and that's only cause our Exchange Rate with the US and Brit and many others is so low.

I think the system is great as it is. Although it would be good if more of the top women consistently played (but it's understandable at the moment with all the conflict). Many aspire to do well at the Grand Slams and it makes for interesting tennis each time.
