Left 2006 Right

Australian Open 2006 was arguably the most emotional in the tournament’s history. There was angst as Nicolas Kiefer controversially threw his racquet at Sebastian Grosjean during their quarterfinal, and excitement as comeback queen Martina Hingis progressed to the quarterfinal –further than any other female wildcard in AO history. There was remembrance as Daphne Akhurst, after whom the women’s trophy was named, was inducted into the Australian Tennis Hall of Fame and hope as Gosford wildcard Nathan Healey made it all the way to the third round, pushing Nikolay Davydenko to four sets. Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis and his exuberant supporters were joy personified, the 2003 junior champion’s cheer squad urging him through wins over Stepanek, Nalbandian, Ljubicic and Roddick, all the way to the final. Roger Federer’s happiness on claiming the title 5-7 7-5 6-0 6-2 manifested itself in a different way, the champ in tears as he accepted his second Australian Open trophy from his hero, Rod Laver. Then there was the reaction to Justine Henin’s mid-match withdrawal (due to stomach pains) during her final against Amelie Mauresmo; a melting pot of elation, outrage, indignation, pity, and speculation that consumed players and fans alike. Mauresmo’s 6-1 2-0 victory was her first Grand Slam title in 32 attempts.
