MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

MELBOURNE, Australia – As the second week officially begins, the mixed and doubles events are still in their fairly early stages.

And the juniors are just beginning.

So the field courts are still bursting with action.

The only Canadian in the junior draws, Saskatchewan’s Keegan Rice (who was here a year ago as well) plays his first-round singles match.
