Good morning, everyone! Thanks for joining us. The match will get started in just a few minutes. Hang tight.

In the meantime, tennis writer Richard Evans gives an update from the scene: "It's been a really hot Melbourne day -- almost the first of the tournament ... We had rather a sweet little demonstration of about 15 young Belgians, grouped obediently for the TV cameras and all daubed with their country's flag, carrying placards reading "Go JuJu!" which seems to be their name for Justine Henin. I'm sure Justine will appreciate their presence but somehow I doubt if they will scare Serena."
