1. You are a tennis FAN!

Back when my son was a tennis ballboy at the DC venue for the men's tour, we shared some of those kind of background details. Son was a big Agassi fan - bandanna etc.

[Son got into the University of his choice on tennis, however, ended his career there after a few weeks of the tennis athlete hours/travel grind].

2. Yesterday, S. Williams said she'd donate

all her prize money and each of her dresses she wears this week at ASB to help fund the bushfire relief efforts.

5. One of the comms

Speculated that what she has worth in her tennis bag is probably way more than the $43K she earned in prize money. I image sheís got a watch in there thatís several hundreds of thousands of $.

But nice gesture by her and all the other players donating $.

4. I've been watching since ATP Cup

started and WTA Brisbane/Aukland.

Now watching Hobart/Adelaide/ATP Aukland and AO qualies.

Not a fan of many of the US players (lots of Trumpers in that group - especially on the menís side.)

I love the beginning of new season - except for suffering from jet lag without leaving the country.

Itís also a fantastic diversion from the shitstorm in the WH.
