Here's a pregress on how the Aussies are going:
- Lleyton Hewwitt has made it to the 3rd round
- Mark Phillipousis made it to the 2nd round, but was beaten last night by Marat Safin in a very close game.
- Wayne Arthurs, Nicole Pratt and Scott Draper (?) have made it to the 2nd round
- Evie Dominikovic and a few others did not make it past round 1.
Other News:
- Greece's Eleni Danilidou beat Justin Henin-Harden in the 1st round.

Yeh he won in 4 sets..i went to bed in the 3rd set thinking he'd win in straight sets but that wasn't to be...
I thought he played really well..pity he didn't win in 3 sets..he now comes up against feliciano lopez...i wouldn't be surprised if lopez beats hewitt!!
