Thought I create this to celebrate the success of the Aussie's at a Challenger tournament in the USA during the Roland Garros

At least we're winning somewhere! I'd really like to see one or two of these guys step up to tour level in the next year...Lindahl or Ball perhaps.

I went to the Carson challenger for a couple of days and watched Lindahl's match.

He seems like a sweet kid who has the talent to do well, but I also wanted to yell at him...but in a good way. :lol: When he gets down in the score, his body language, everything just screams that he's down on himself. And in the last set against Monroe, once Monroe got up a break, I knew that Nick kind of gave up.

He's very young, and he'll learn not to do that. Hopefully soon, because again, he seemed like a good kid.

I also saw Groth's match. He should have beaten Cook, but he got really tight. He was up I think like 5-1 in the first set tb, and lost it. Cook played well, but again, Groth s/h won.

Can't believe they all went down. All for one and one for all!
