The only sport that I can abide to watch is the Australian Open. I don't really know why. I don't watch any other tennis during the year, nor do I plan to spend anytime watching it. It just, sort of, well, happens. I flick over and there's an exciting match on and I'm hooked for the duration.
Tonight was Aussie Alicia Molik v Venus Williams. First time for 17 years that an Australian woman has made it to the fourth round. I found myself behaving like a sports nut. Wooing, and talking to the TV. Yeah and Arggg were constant commentaries on the games' progress.
Molik won and I will be tuning in on Wednesday night to see how she performs.
Is there some sort of patriotism seeping in?
Unlikely. I still can't stand Lleyton Hewitt.
