NEWPORT BEACH — Fans who follow Taylor Dent on Twitter or "like" him on Facebook lately have been treated to his thoughts on the Australian Open. They're observations not everyone would have on the first Grand Slam tennis tournament of the year. Then again, not everyone played professional tennis for over a decade and reached as high as No. 21 in the world. Dent is back living in the Eastbluff community of Newport Beach now, a stone's throw from where he competed at Corona del Mar High in 1996 and became just the third player ever to win a CIF Individuals title as a freshman.
