Racqonteur, as has been readily apparent from this page's recent stasis, has been on something of a hiatus these past few weeks. Truth be told, for this lover the game, time spent actually playing the sport has recently been more attractive than time spent commenting on it. But this site, a lot like the Ivanovic-Hantuchova semifinal at 0-6, 0-2, is far from over. Please check back soon for post-Aussie impressions and a revitalized stream of courtside chatter.

After what must have felt like the most fleeting vacation imaginable, the tennis world's wheels are turning once again. Like clockwork, Maria Sharapova has jumped out of the gates at an exhibition match in Hong Kong, showing off her new blunt-bang hairdo and a dash of Chanel tweed. Sassy! Classy! Champion-esque! She sure smoked the competition back in November at the year-end tournament in Madrid, so it should be interesting to see what kind of form she shows up with in Melbourne.
