5 Brits Start the Oz Open, 0 Remain.
Today, or rather last night in the UK, the Australian Open tennis tournament got under way. 5 of the 6 Brits who made it to the draw were in action and every single one lost. That leaves Andy Murray as the last Brit standing and he hasn’t even started yet. Poor showing although that being said, some of our players were playing tough opponents.
The British results in full from last night’s action:
James Ward (161) 4 3 4
Blaz Kavcic (103) 6 6 6
Victoria Azarenka (3) 6 6
Heather Watson (105) 1 0
Laura Robson (134) 2 0
Jelena Jankovic (13) 6 6
Stephanie Foretz Gacon (107) 6 6
Elena Baltacha (54) 2 4
Anne Keothavong retired after losing the first set 6-0.
Hopefully, these guys can keep their rankings up so they can qualify for the French and Wimbledon and hopefully do a little better.
Andy Murray is 3rd on Hisense Arena. He is playing a young and up and coming US player in Ryan Harrison.
