        Hello everybody, hope you are enjoying your New Year and all that goes with the new year.   If you didn't know this already, we are now watching the first major tennis tournament of the year, the Australian Open.   The fourth day of the main draw will start in a few hours.   Djokovic, Nadal, and Federer are all still alive at this point, but Andy Murray has succumbed to a difficult hip injury that seems to be taking him out of pro tennis.

        On the women's side, Halep, Kerber, Danielle Collins, Venus & Serena, Sloane Stephens, and defending champion Caroline Wozniacki, are all still in the singles.

Stay tuned to your TV using ESPN, ESPN2, or Tennis Channel to see the matches as they move along.   Should be very interesting!!
