Hey Dennis,I didn't riezale you were an avid tennis fan! Our whole family is, and we stayed up late at night and got up early in the morning to watch the Australian Open. I was disappointed there wasn't more coverage on US TV, but I guess that's another reason for us to sign up for the Tennis Channel. I agree, Djokovic has had an amazing year, as have all the Serbian tennis players. Don't know if you remember, but my son plays tennis. He made varsity his freshman year at high school, and last fall played #2 singles as a sophomore. Tennis is a year round activity for our family!
