Sunday/ the tennis Down Under

All right. You-Know-Who (The No-Vax One) has departed from Melbourne, Australia (reportedly flying to Dubai, and presumably getting to his home in Monte Carlo, from there).
It is Monday morning, 72 °F (22 °C) and sunny in Melbourne, so hopefully the tennis tournament can bounce back from the ugly run-up to its start.
‘Lucky loser’* Salvatore Caruso (age 29, Italy) finds himself in the main draw now, in the spot that held the world number one’s name.

*He lost in the Australian Open qualifying tournament’s final round.

I resubscribed to ESPN+ again, to catch the Australian Open tennis. Here’s a peek into the player entrance area and the hallway running out to the court in the Margaret Court Arena. Margaret Smith Court (age 79) is an Australian retired tennis player and former world No. 1 herself. She is unfortunately also known for her outspoken and disgraceful criticism of the LGBT community. (Shrug. It’s 2022 and not 1822 or 1922. So I don’t even know what to say about that).
