Melbourne Diaries: Tennis

Good Tennis at Federation SquareI have almost never followed tennis, but with the Australian Open happening right here in Melbourne, it is hard to completely ignore it. It crops up everywhere – on the drive to office, lunch conversations, tea-room tid-bits. So when they were screening the Finals on a big screen at the heart of city center (Federation Square), I joined in the spectator crowd to enjoy the pulse.

It was a very nice evening, especially with the soaring temperatures of last week now abated, and the whole city coming out in celebration. The tennis itself was very good, stretching to five sets, and each set running for good lengths. It was a pity to see Federer lose – he was the local favorite.
