It was also a lot of fun, the boy with the seven League boots to watch as he was finally to the new mate of the Australian Tennis. The inserted mate, is probably best with a buddy to translate, and in Australia, but a title of nobility.
Finally, there is hardly a word that brings the fraternization between Australian sports fans and their favorites so wonderfully to the point.
