Rain Delays Aussie No.1 Millman’s Aus Open Qualifying, Practice Moved Indoors

The Australian Open has not gotten off to a great start, as heavy rain has caused the first day of qualifiers to be abandoned at Melbourne Park. The matches were delayed multiple times on Monday before ultimately being called off in the afternoon. This has caused frustration for many players, including Arina Rodionova, who was set to play in the qualifiers.

The decision to reserve the main indoor courts for practice sessions for already qualified players has added to the controversy. Rodionova, along with several other Australians, will now have to wait until Tuesday to begin their qualifying campaign.

Despite her impressive form, Rodionova was overlooked for a wildcard entry to the tournament. This has left her disappointed, as she was hoping for a chance to compete in the Australian Open. However, she remains determined to earn her way into the main draw.

Overall, the weather has disrupted the start of the Australian Open qualifiers, but there is still hope that the matches can be rescheduled if the bad weather persists. Despite the setbacks, players like Rodionova and John Millman remain focused on their goal of reaching the tournament.
