I did really enjoy the Male put downs. Shame we can't email them to the Australian.

Lesley | 1575 comments Aussie forte. As the Aussie interviewer said to the tennis player, give us a twirl luv. Every nation has to have its foibles and inadequacies. We shoot down those that achieve!


Carol She's So Novel꧁꧂  | 986 comments An American friend of mine wrote this on a FB discussion just before I put up that link

"That's unbelievable. Can you imagine Steinbeck's obit reading, "He was bandy-legged little guy who made up for his lack of height with a nicely trimmed beard." WTF?"

A NZ commentator said to Erakovic at the ASB classic that he was glad she wasn't wearing those ugly shorts anymore. She laughed & said she liked those shorts. No reaction at all in the press here.

I like following the fashions at the Aussie Open - men as well as women. I'm really looking forward to the commentators asking Fed or Novak to give us a twirl!
