Re: Australian Open
Lots of Australian tennis players/tennis interest in the past century or so, I suppose. England doesn't have any major tournaments either (well, I suppose Queens, but then you can Sydney for Australia), and it has Wimbledon.
I am a fan of Federer, Gasquet, Baghdatis, the long-deceased Safin, Youzhny, Nalbandian, Rochus, Tsonga, the sadly-departed Santoro, and good, hearty, competitive tennis matches. The quality of my life does not rest solely on who wins these matches. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that I can live quite happily after a player I like chokes, mugs, bashes, or otherwise succumbs to a loss.
