Re: Australian Open

I have a Master's in English and taught English for a year. I would love to help David! Rafa is doing so well now. David is improving quickly, too. In exchange, he could give me some tennis lessons. (That would be hilarious! Edda The Klutz who walks into walls swinging a tennis racquet!) LOL!

Re: Australian Open

Ferrer’s Coach Admits He “Already Had The Return Ticket”

Speaking to Marca the day after his charge had beaten Rafael Nadal in the Australian Open quarter-finals, Javier Piles revealed that he had already booked David Ferrer’s return flights home.

"He already had the ticket, but we kept changing every time he won another match. I usually buy my ticket for the Tuesday of the second week but I'm more than happy to change it and delighted to pay for it," said the Spaniard. "We never even hoped to be up here and we just need to look at the past to cherish even more how far we have come, and for him to realise how unique this opportunity is. These things don't happen very often in life."

On Thursday, Ferrer spent time relaxing ahead of the big match by playing beach tennis on Port Melbourne beach.

Re: Australian Open

My Austalian Open viewing has come to an end. I see no point in it now. Everyone I supported is gone, except for Kim Clijsters. I will watch, but only with muted interest. I had hoped it would be the lead in to weekend of watching my favorite players, but now it has turned out to be a feeble last hope. Women's tennis just doesn't interest me as much as men's tennis does.
