Australian Open is Here!

It’s here, furriends! Finally! The first grand slam tournament of the season, the Australian Open!

Tennis has been feast or famine during this pandemic…months of no tennis at all, and then you turn the calendar page to February 2021 and it wakes you up like a big Fancy Feast!

Tennis Australia gave us plenty of warm up events this past week to get the players ready and to give us fans something to purr about! The ATP Cup and several warm up tournaments…I could barely keep track.

But today, the big wait is over! First round coverage starts tonight and I am ready. While the rest of the US will have their sights on Tampa and Super Bowl Sunday, I will be tuned in down under! There are some excellent first round matches to keep you entertained! Here are my top first round picks:

Men:

Dimitrov vs. Cilic

Nishikori vs. Carreno Busta

Shapovalov vs. Sinner

Ruud vs. Thompson

Basilashvili vs. Paul

Pospisil vs. Medvedev

Anderson vs. Barretini

Sandgren vs. De Minaur

Women:

Pliskova vs. Watson

Sakkari vs. Mladenovic

Gauff vs. Teichmann

Bouzkova vs. Svitolina

So grab your snacks, cuddle up on your favorite tennis watching chair, and let the games begin!

I’ll keep you updated on the latest happenings from down under!
