Aus Open - The draw, the vibe, but where's Catherine?

David and Matt have made it to Melbourne! For now, with Catherine still in the U.K. as she recovers from her eye infection, they are joined by The Telegraph’s Simon Briggs to discuss the controversial build-up to this year’s Australian Open. Simon has been down under for a few weeks, and he gives the lowdown on how he thinks the ATP Cup might affect players, the criticism faced by Tennis Australia as qualifying went ahead in spite of the poor air quality, the main talking points from Thursday's draw ceremony, and the injuries affecting a number of British players.
