Zverev looked rusty today but should improve with more matches - Can you imagine Rothenburg's meltdown on twitter if Zverev wins the AO.

Have a questions about the crowds ? They looked to be down even taking into account the 50% crowd cap - I've attended the first week on a few occasions where I focus on the outside courts and it's Jam packed with people - You need the overseas visitors back who add to the vibe of the event.
Day 1 had about 38% attendance compared to 2020.

Tired simple. It’s why the top players don’t play the week prior
In all honesty he has ability but grand slam level will find him out. Honest toiler who tries hard but outclassed on the big stage. Bear in mind injuries have not helped him.

Kenin loses to Keys.

Kenin was defending her points from her win in 2020. So, massive fall in rankings coming up

Schmieds lost to the 'Penko

Shame about the Kokk but he should look back at his Aussie summer with pride. An ATP tournament win is better than a round 1 win in a grand slam.

Too many UEs for Ash though the wind out there probably made it tricky at times. Anyway, onto R2 and another qualifier Bronzetti.

Eh. This Barty is the same same. Dominates early. It’s her mentality against the second week opponents that’s holding her back

No point playing in tournaments and winning prior to Aus Open when all you get is two day break and first round exit.
Bit unfair having so many and so close, literally the weekend before Australian open.

Dang Jelena Dokic has put on the kgs had a crush on her back in the day

She had stacked it on a few years back but then got that Jenny Craid advertising deal and got back to a good figure.

She's said 2021 was a bad year for her with bad stuff happening. Not sure if her relationship bit the dust or if it was something else. She has seemed very emotional over the past six months, even when commentating or interviewing.

Top players don’t bother they are happy getting a couple of matches before and that’s it.
