It has been a huge week in Aussie sport, with the Spring Racing Carnival in full swing, test cricket underway and the summer of tennis moving along nicely.
The court is where we will start this week because winners are grinners and Matt Ebden couldn’t wipe the smile off his face after a second tournament win for the season on the weekend.
The West Aussie verging on a return to the top 100 and a guaranteed place at January’s Australian Open.

Speaking benefits …
Jason Behrendorff has friends in high places. Not everyone gets a chance to impersonate Leo from Catch Me If You Can.
The big man happy to spend a bit of time at the pointy end of the plane as the WA boys flew to Adelaide for their second Shield game of the season.
It was a short turnaround for the lads with only 2 days back home, with Dorff spoilt by wife Juvelle who organised a food safari.
Dorff certainly knows he’s on to a good thing.
Fit strong and healthy is where it’s at.
Here’s our boy Rhys Mainstone doing his best work for Melbourne Cup.
Rumours are he was a late entrant into fashions on the field
Punting wise there was only one guy who had a bit of success.
Here’s who our team selected for the big race, with Behrendorff managing to find the second place getter and the rest left with empty wallets.

We believe Alex Beck might be one who is a bit worse off than others being a keen follower of the gallops.
Surely he deserved a bit better karma after this performance during the week.
Every year the Relay for Life event raises much need awareness and money for cancer research. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Almost everyone has been affected by cancer in some way and these events do a great service towards finding a cure. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ @ferry_rd_physio #physio #relayforlife2015 #athlete #tracknation #findacure #cancer #runner #griffithuniversity #relayforlife #cancercouncil
Great to see him supporting a great cause and while we are pretty sure his future lies in physio work, the catwalk might come calling.
He informs us this was taken with no filter.
And finally, as we told you previously Michael Freiberg is an ideas man.
Last week he launched his AIRhub training invention.
This week it’s all about a Frankenstein bike
That’s it for us for this week. Have a good weekend and we’ll be back at the same time next week with another #TeamEmageo Social Muster.
