    Tennis

    I found it annoying that there was a cricket thread but no tennis thread so decided not to be lazy and start one up..

    Good to see that the aussie open is finally underway...nice win by Molik tonight although she didnt look overly convicing but that may in part be due to the hiddeous appearance of her opponent...lol...she has some tuff games ahead

    I think Hewitt is going to have a poor tourney, hes not in great form having lost to gooch not that i dont mind beacuse i find him extremely annoying

    I think Federer win take out the mens and Serena Williams the chicks....will be good in a weeks time when all the crappy players have been weeded out..

    Feeling sorry for Federer's punching bag opponent tonight. Very one sided, poor bugger.

    Looks like Hewitt is out, barring a miracle return, down the break in the 3rd set, all set for a straight sets loss.

    Pity about Dellacqua, but the fairy tale had to come to an end. Good to see her take it to the best, though, will be interesting to follow her progress in the future.

    Federer's saturday game was amazing! Think he only won through superior match fitness/staying power.

    EDIT: Hewitt facing 3 break points in 3rd for a 2nd break. Goneski.

    even tho it was straight sets hewitt fought well, with no aussies left I guess the field is starting to resemble a high class chess tourney .. still think federer will come though with the good...in the chicks its way more open tho..

    Incredible match by Tsonga tonight. I'm still in shell shock and no doubt so is Nadal. If the Frenchman can repeat this hitting on Sunday he could just beat anyone.

    Why do they need total silence to play tennis? What do they think it is; chess?

    No way. His preparation coming in was non-existent due to illness, and he clearly wasn't at his best. There are at least 5 more majors in Federer or I'll eat my socks.

    Nope. It happened. And it brings to an end his 10 straight appearances in Grand Slam finals. (That is a men's record). It also means it will take Roger a little longer to get the 3 more grand slam single titles to get past Sampras's record.

    He was clearly not hitting the ball well this tourny. He was also slower than normal around the court. He is probably still favourite for Wimbledon after losing to Nadal in the French.

    ... unless Tsonga can play like he played yesterday all the time... He could be unstoppable.
