The 2013 Australian Open sizzles across multiple screens on ESPN STAR Sports!

Fans to enjoy up to 140 hours of LIVE high definition broadcast on ESPN HD

11 January 2013 (Bangkok) –The eagerly anticipated 2013 calendar of sports has finally kicked off with the first Grand Slam of the season, and fans can look forward to yet another extraordinary season of drama as ESPN STAR Sports serves up unparalleled coverage of the Australian Open from Melbourne, starting next Monday, 14 January 2013.

Fans can continue to expect extensive live coverage of the Australian Open on STAR Sports and in high definition on ESPN HD. Key highlights of this year’s Australian Open broadcast include:

ESPN HD: Up to 140 hours of LIVE high definition broadcast of the Australian Open, bringing fans closer to the action with astonishing visual clarity and audio de tai l for the genuine sports fan experience.

STAR Sports: Both channels’ all-inclusive television coverage of the 2013 Australian Open includes nearly 140 hours of LIVE tennis matches as well as exclusive studio presentation and analysis by top presenter Alan Wilkins and popular tennis expert Vijay Amritraj. In addition, Paula Malai Ali will be in Melbourne bringing colour stories from the tournament, and one-on-one interviews with top players.
With last year’s nail-biting six hour final between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic still fresh on our minds, this year’s event promises to be equally action-packed and full of drama that will keep tennis fans on the edge of their seats!

With four different Grand Slam winners last year, the first time since 2003, this season looks set to be one of the most widely-contested seasons in a decade. Last year saw the dominance of Novak Djokovic in consolidating his status as the best player in the world, Andy Murray silencing critics by winning his first Grand Slam and Roger Federer tying Pete Sampras’s record of seven Wimbledon titles, as well as earning the honour as the player with most number of weeks at World No. 1.
This year, all eyes will be on indomitable Serena Williams as she looks to win her sixth Australian Open here at Melbourne . She will face tough competition from Maria Sharapova, with four Grand Slam wins under her belt – including the 2008 Australian Open – as well as current World No. 1 and defending champion Victoria Azarenka. We should also not discount the 2011 French Open champion, Li Na from China , who continues to fly the Asian flag high. However, Caroline Wozniacki, Petra Kvitova and Australia ’s Sam Stosur will also prove to be strong contenders for the title.

 Don’t miss all the sizzling action of this year’s Australian Open! Visit for local schedules.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
