The Happy Slam is here. While some names are back compared to the US Open, we still have several big names missing. You can find the draws here https://ausopen.com/draws?events=2446&player= (women) and here https://ausopen.com/draws (men). It has been raining in Melbourne during qualies and forecasts says we will have some more rain during the upcoming week.
These threads are weekly threads with just tennis talk: match talk, past, current or upcoming events in tennis etc. Spamming (including muggy politics talk) and general sports talk can be done elsewhere such as the usual megathreads, current one is called It's time for S/OT 6.
