    I don't have a problem with Dokic returning... she was only 16 when she (or her father) made that desicion. Now that she's back, she better stay back ;)

    I think she won't do very well, due to lack of match practise and training.

    Man, it's pretty cool to think (as I'm freezing my "kiwis" off up here in N.Y. and you guys are enjoying the first day of "summer" down under) that I can read/engage Aussies thousands and thousands of miles away.

    One question though: How in God's name can you crazy "Joeys" hop around and casually bang down one VEGAMITE sandwich after another??? I mean, isn't VEGAMITE some sort of combination of:

    [size=+1]5 parts roofing tar
    1 part motor oil
    2 parts molasses???[/size]

    Man, I know McDonalds isn't something to write home about...but VEGAMITE??!!!! Just HOW do you guys enjoy that schstuff???!! Ha! regards! :)

    It's the
    10 parts salt that makes it the Nectar of the Gods.
    That's the secret tennis ingredient. Little Mia Hewitt is already partaking.

    (Summer started here 1st Dec. You must be thinking of Antarctica. Still pretty cold down there)

    Vegemite tastes pretty good on toast, but if you put too much on that can make ppl h8 it.

    Hey, I'm hanging out for 30 degrees plus with NO humidity. It's been ridiculously hot up here over the last week with the last few days 38, 37, 39 and 34 degrees. Could be manageable if it wasn't so bloody humid.

    Anyway, Im looking forward to heading back to Melbourne for the start of the Aus Open. Not overly disappointed with the news of impending withdrawals as I'll be going the cheap option and just buying a grounds pass.

    go_nadal,

    Melbourne's cooler weather (not in summer though) and very discernible seasons are the reasons why it's the best city in Australia to visit.

    AndrewD, i dont no about melbourne being the best city in aus to visit....
    In my opinion, i would much rather go visit the sunshine coast of qld or somwhere more warm than melbourne, especially in the colder months.
    But some people who dont like the heat so much might prefer it so yeh..

    I think Queensland is easily the best holiday destination. I love living in Melbourne though.

    Queensland is a great holiday destination but, as regards living up here, let's just say it's a bit too slowwwwwwwwwwww LOL. Give me Melbourne with the restaurants, the parklands, the theatres, the intellectual stimulation, the culture, the trams and good old Aussie Rules any day of the week.

    Im not suggesting that it's the best place to visit, it's hardly what you'd call a 'touristy' kind of place, but it's a hell of a lot better to live in than Queensland.

    Yours,
    Faults and all, I wish I still lived there (apart from during the Commonwealth games lol) :)

    I'm hoping to see the new "G" when next there, you too? Friends at the Test are raving about it. Second thought: it'll be undergoing snap transformation for the Games so probably have to wait.

    I would have to agree I have only travelled to Melbourne once and I can say the experience was very pleasurable unlike the city of Sydney . I was only in Melbourne for a week for the Aus Open and the city was buzzing , nice restaurants clean streets plenty of shops etc etc. I cannot compare the Gold Coast as I have never been , but I think Go_Nadal will back me up on this one , good old Batemans Bay at this time of the year is pretty good , except the beaches get a little to crowded ( I think Batemans Bay in aboriginal means God's Country)
