Are you joking? Have you ever been in Melbourne during the Australian Open? Everyone is talking tennis. Even old ladies in the hotel elevator will say "Good morning. Tomic played well last night didn't he?", or whatever else is going on at the Open.

As a contrast, I've been in NYC during the US Open, and outside of the tournament grounds nobody seems to be aware of it at all. Once again, if I mention it they think I'm referring to golf.
