At last we have an Aussie Grand Slam Champ.
I guess like the rest of the country, we sat glued in front of the TV this morning watching, hardly daring to hope that it may actually happen.
But it did and I was so proud of Samantha's composure and humility. You'll have to excuse the euphoria - the last Australian to win the US Open was Wendy Turnbull way back in 1980. It's been a long time between drinks.
It really stuck home a couple of days ago that I had forgotten how stunningly beautiful Sydney is in Spring. It almost takes your breath away.
If only there was a way of bringing down Brisbane family, friends and weather, Sydney would be heaven on earth.
