As far as I know, Darren Cahill has nohnitg to do officially with Australian tennis. He coached Lleyton Hewitt and, when ESPN allows, calls matches on 7 during the Australian Open but that is as far as it goes. I really don't agree that Tennis Australia is part of your axis at all. Caro is attractive and that is what sells. It was the same with Kournikova and even Sharapova when she first came onto the scene so it's not like this is something new. I hate she is 1 in the world as much as you do but I can see why the WTA is so in love with the idea. Can Serena get it back this year if she plays Linz and continues through to the YEC?
