We made it over to Margaret Court Arena and saw no rainbow flags. The first day it was late in the day, though, so maybe the protesters had left. It was really hot both days so maybe they made their point and left. Or maybe they figured they were oppressed enough without the weather conditions and are waiting for cooler temps.
We did, however, get to hear the guys behind us use several derogatory terms for gay people while we were watching a match today. Cheers!
We did see Jelena Jankovic play Brit Laura Robson in Margaret Court. And Kuznetsova. And Gael Monfils.
In Rod Laver, we saw Federer beat a qualifer and Wozniacki easily dismissed Australian Anastasia Rodionova. Saw the battle of the French women with Marion Bartoli taking down compatriot Virginie Razzano.
Robson had too many unforced errors.
Jankovic sporting Fila now. (Other players with new labels: Stosur with Asics, Bartoli with Lotto.)We’ve been watching on television at night too. The bummer is that it’s Australian coverage, of course, and Jim Courier works for them. Quite annoying!
