The first grand slam of the year is days away from taking place and I absolutely love the Australian Open (AO), could be my favourite grand slam out of the 4.
I am a huge tennis fanatic and I am so excited for the beginning of the Australian Open 2019. I also just heard the news that Andy Murray has announced his retirement at Wimbledon but he may not be able to compete there and AO could be his last tournament.
This year, I don’t think that neither 1 of the big 4, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray, will win it. It is time for the #NextGen to step it up. It will be a very hard challenge but its time.
I have been following some of the qualifying matches and it is unfortunate that Dustin Brown (GER) lost in his 3rd and last round of qualifying. Peter Polansky (CAN) also lost to Thanassi Kokkinakis (AUS).
This is just a brief note about AO 2019, I will likely post few more in the upcoming 2 weeks of the tournament. There are several tough first round matches.
