Sporting shorts..

So, this weekend sees the end of the Australian Open. It has been quite an interesting tournament. From a Australian point of view, there are still representatives 'alive' in the Legends Doubles (Mark Philipousis), Women's Doubles (Sam Stosur) and the Mixed Doubles (Astra Sharma and John-Patrick Smith), not to forget the wheelchair and junior tournaments.

Can someone tell me what the difference between the quad tournament and wheelchair tournament is.

I think after the weekend's finals the next big tennis event for the Men is Australia's Davis Cup Tie against Bosnia and Herzegovina in Adelaide over the first weekend of February. Will be interesting to see Australia's team for the tie.

The winner of the tie will join 11 other winners and the four countries that reached the semifinals this year (France, Croatia, United States and Spain) and two wildcards (Argentina and Great Britain) in the new 18-team season finale to be played from 18-24 November 2019.

Will be interesting to watch 

The Women's Federation Cup starts Feb 9-10, and Australia has been drawn to play the United States (Away).

I'm hoping to see Kvitova win the Women's Final tomorrow, and Djokovic end up winning the Men's Final (beating Lucas Pouille today, and Nadal on Sunday)...  but we'll see :)
