    I saw Lleyton playing mixed doubles with Jarmila Wolfe nee Gajdosova. She was having a ball.

    Nick Kyrgios and Daria Gavrilova are in the Hopman Cup final tonight apparently.. But i'm in no hurry to watch him play.

    And Feds did it a little tough last night, beating Dimitrov 6-4 6-7 6-4.

    Ahh - to be on holidays and having nothing to do would be great.

    Kyrgios played pretty well to beat Dolgopolov last night. Fed has lost the first set against Raonic in Brisbane.
    When everything is said and done, and nothings left to do, I'd like to be the final one to say "What else is new?"

    Aus Open starting today. Djoikovic is bookie's favourite at 1.70 Federer is only 4th favourite at 12.00. Surprisingly, even Wavrinka's chances are rated higher than his.

    I don't mind tennis, but I do confess I enjoyed the sport more about 10 years ago when it was not so dominated by the same 4 individuals.

    The BIG news - Stakhovsky eliminated - the F man breathes easier as they were on a collision course for a 3rd round matchup.

    I believe Dimitrov is looking far more dangerous as a 3d round opponent than Stakhovsky anyway. Fed did lose to Stakhovsky at Wibledon once..but overall -Dimitrov (who has been playing very well the last couple of weeks) is more likely to give him trouble.

    Haha.
    Quite amazing seeing the two aussies in matching kit and backwards caps.
    They were hitting it ok too.

    I reckon one thing that made Lleyton so good is his mental strength/attitude.
    He's so focused and in control. It took Federer an eternity to sort out this part of his game.

    Dead right. That was only the second Aussie Hewitt had played in 20 Opens. So it's Hewitt v Ferrer - the 2 oldest in the draw - Hewy will be fancying his chances.

    Ferrer is not young but certainly not the oldest on tour, Federer, Stepanek, Carlovic are all older than him I believe. Also he is not as consistent as before but still number 8 in the world so I think this match will be Hewitt's last goodbye

    Lleyton looked ready for the showers in the first set tonight.

    This article is ok, though the headline is a little bit of a beat-up
