The first day of a Grand Slam is always the most hectic, but we kept our eyes peeled for as many noteworthy events as possible. Here’s what we learned.
Maria Sharapova talked about Grigor Dimitrov after winning her first round match at the Australian Open.
A liveblog of the first round match between Lleyton Hewitt and Janko Tipsarevic at the Australian Open.
Fernando Verdasco just beat David Goffin 6-3, 3-6, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 in the first round of the Australian Open. Phew! The match took three hours and twenty-two minutes. If there’s one thing for certain it’s that Fernando Verdasco is in shape. In fact, he has a much more muscular body than most tennis players. How did he get that way? Luckily for us he shares his training regimen on twitter.
G’day, mates! It’s finally here! The Australian Open is officially underway!
As I either celebrate or grieve over my NFL team, the New England Patriots, making the AFC Championship game or failing miserably (pending results), I will be liveblogging all the action right here. My fellow Changeover writers, Lindsay and Juan Jose, will be providing an assist as we attempt to watch everything all at once.
In the inaugural Changeover Podcast, hosted by Brodie of Mind The Racket, Amy, Juan Jose, and Lindsay discuss 2013 happenings in the tennis world so far, do quarter-by-quarter analysis of the Australian Open draw, and make predictions.
Lindsay, Amy, and Juan José have a back and forth about Maria Sharapova’s dominating run down under at the 2008 Australian Open.
