It was a short stay Down Under for American School student Anna Tatishvili as she lost to Ayumi Morita of Japan, 6-3, 6-3, in the first round of the Australian Open tennis tournament. The loss ended hopes of a third round showdown between Anna and prohibitive tournament favorite Serena Williams and prevented Anna from matching her best Grand Slam tournament finish, a fourth round showing at last year's U.S. Open, where she lost to top-seed Victoria Azarenka in the round of 16. We look forward to Anna's next Grand Slam appearance at the French Open, which begins in late May in Paris.
