    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..

    You can check if a thread is still active by scrolling to the last post (use the numbers in the bottom right-hand corner to pick the last page). Anyway even if a thread is not still active you are still welcome to reply (unless it is a locked thread in which case no-one can reply except moderators)!

    Tomic looks burnt out and needs a break I reckon. 6 months off, and decide if he wants to do it or not.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.
