Bad day for the Aussies - Only one out of 8 into the final round of qualifying - Pity, I can't be in Australia to watch qualifying - This is when you may discover hidden gems for the future - The tournament itself is great, although tennis followers are familiar with the established players.

I think it will only hurt the later rounds.

people are scared atm. They weren't going to flock in higher numbers. Plus no tourists.

Yeah, you're right, it's crap but actually now the lesser crowds can be blamed on the Vic government trying to limit the spread.

I just hope TA gets the financial help it needs as surely this year will be another big hit for them.

Bad news...crowd capacity for the Aus open reduced to 50%

BS!

Probably to cover up for the fact that crowds would be down. Unjabbed locked out and too many other people just scared to mix with a lot of other people at the moment.
