And Arnaud... *no comments* the only thing is that there are enough wellknown names in 'Alternates'.

And... all time since I've been interested in tennis I've seen Lars Burgsmuller in Qualif. list. Now he's in the main entry list of AO. Yeah, times changes...

I'll watching it, and my mind will be there. That's all.

Re: AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2004

hello,

the Australian Open is my favorite Grand Slam after Roland Garros, its the first of the season and all the players have good and great energie to make good things there.

And its very hot ,its summer so good luck for the players as for those who will be in the AO, enjoy as much as you can!The australian crowd is also nice and it seems to have a good atmosphere at the AO, so enjoy!

as for us thoose who dont live in australia but in europe I think that eurosport will cover this event,I didnt follow last year all the AO because I passed exams, its too late!!but I will record the matchs that interest me.

Come Back Tournament: HAMBURG.

Allez!

Re: AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2004

I hope our boys won't go to the beach, after practices... what I read today in the newspaper scares me...poor young man, eaten by the great shark I'm sure that if I go to Australia one day, I' won't try to go swimming, your beaches are too dangerous

(Marine, totally scared and obsseded by sharks since her childhood)

Re: AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2004

*waves* Hi richard gasquet!

I'm going to the Australian Open!!! Am taking my 2 oldest daughters and one of their friends.

I'm going on the 17th - Day 1 - so hopefully Seb will be playing/training. lol. The girls will be seeing a lot of Sebastien Grosjean that day and very little of anyone else.

Marine, my oldest daughter (14years old) is terrified of sharks too. We live on the south coast of Victoria, Australia, and she is currently learning to become a lifesaver with the local surf lifesaving club. As part of her training she has to swim out 100 metres. She told me she was too scared to because she was worried about sharks.
I told her there was very little chance of a shark being out there. Plus there are shark planes that fly over every so often.

Then the other day on the news she saw about the shark attack and was horrified. I think we're going to have a bit of trouble getting her out in the water tomorrow (that's when she goes for her lifesaving certificate). lol.

It is scary though. But not enough to keep me out of the water. It's 35 degrees celcius here today and I'm about to head down to the surf beach.

*****!!!!!ALLEZ SEB FOR 2006!!!!!*****

hehe no problem, michelle!

LOL Marine, this is like the first time i've EVER heard of someone getting eaten like that!!! The odds that it will happen to you are very very very small!! No one likes Adelaide beaches neways Other beaches down here are sooo pretty, if you come in Summer one day you MUST come to the beach!!
