And finally the long waited Australian Open 2013 started today. The city of Melbourne is full of people and it is bustling with energy everywhere. A sunny Melbourne. A breezy Melbourne. A perfect temperature for the players, not too hot, not too cold. Many players are involved, of course some of the greatest, such as Djokovich, that won today against Paul-Henry Mathieu (6-2 6-4 7-5), Venus Williams (6-1, 6-0) and Sharapova (6-0, 6-0) a lot Spanish players, a lot of Australians of course, and a few Italians. Unfortunately all the Italians are out: Fabio Fognini (0-6, 6-2, 4-6, 6-3, 1-6), Simone Bolelli (5-7, 4-6,3-6), Flavio Cipolla (1-6, 4-6, 1-6), Karin Knapp (6-3, 3-6, 3-6) and Camilla Giorgi (2-6, 2-3), but Paolo Lorenzi, who is playing right now against Kevin Anderson from South Africa.

And just now the ‘Aussie’ Hewitt just lost to the Serbian Tipsarevic (7-6(4) 7-5 6-3) …

Here are the results so far. And have a look here for some pics and videos!

Keep watching!!!
