Jankovic has been terrible lately. (Didn't Stosur beat her at some stage during the French open?)

Anywho I'm thinking about getting tickets to one of the sessions this weekend, but I don't know which!

And also, I just want to add that the Australian flag next to Australian players' names on the scoreboard pisses me off. As if we don't already know that they're Australian.

Yeah, I remember Stosur beat her there, but then again, Stosur is only ever top-10 worthy on clay. Outside top-10 anywhere else.

I wouldn't be surprised if Jankovic fell in the rankings as the year goes on, seems to have peaked pretty early along along with Ivanovic.

I don't mind them doing it. But if they are putting the aussie flag on, I don't see why they just don't have a flag for every player!

Exactly. It just seems somewhat ... you know, obnoxious to me.

Channel 7 sucks balls. I hate Bruce's tennis commentary almost as much as his AFL work these days. He's been asking stupid questions the whole tournament!

Much of what he says goes like this ...

"*states an obvious fact about match*, isn't he/she/it?"

I still really like Jim Courier despite his obvious mancrush on Federer.

Is Sandy Roberts doing the women's matches? He's pretty good. Luckily I have the option to watch the open on Fox Sports as well.

Failing that, there is always AO Radio.

Don't you get to choose between a whole bunch of matches on FoxSports?

Yes, last night they had Sharapova on the main channel, and I pressed the red button and there were like 3 other matches to choose from, and another dedicated to interviews/news.

Wow, that's awesome. If I had the opportunity I'd get Foxtel just for FoxSports, screw the other shit.



 

I also want to say that I think Tomic's game is batshit boring and I refuse to watch him because of that and that he's a brat that pisses me off as much as Hewitt.

Can't wait to see Tomic get destroyed by Nadal.

don't count Stosur out, vlad. i fail to see how she's "not top-10 worthy" other than on clay yet had she not choked at Wimbledon she'd have a trophy on grass

rankings mean little in the womens game anyway. there's a new #1 every month.

i love Jim Courier, Sandy Roberts, and the tennis-aficionado commentators (Fitzgerald and the like). Leconte is entertaining ("oh yeah baby") but it's like every point is the best he's ever seen. Hamish McLachlan was commentating last night. odd choice but he went alright!

I'm not counting her out, but knowing her record on hardcourts I can't see her making it that far.

Interesting that you liked McLachlan, I'm hearing nothing but hate for him everywhere else.
