The Australian Open is under way!  CableOne still does not carry the Tennis Channel so I am limited to ESPN2's coverage--which isn't too bad.  Luckily, the time difference allows for watching some matches live here in the United States during the evening hours.

I have signed up for the Boise Racquet and Swim Club's (BRSC) Twilight Even Tennis Tournament.  My partner Jay and I have not played together before and the competition will be tough.  The tournament is non-sanctioned so the results won't count on my NTRP rating.  The draws will be out on Wednesday 1/16/08.  I have a feeling Jay and I will be playing the #1 seed right off the bat.  Here is the tournament's website:  tennislink.usta.com/tournaments/TournamentHome/Tournament.aspx

BRSC Team Tennis started last Saturday night with lots of chaos.  Amazingly, because of the delays and confusion, our team won our first match against the team with the highest rankings.  Our team has the lowest so it was quite lucky indeed.  This Saturday's match should run more smoothly and so we won't be able to rely on just luck!
