Meh, so what? I'm getting right into it now, will probably follow some of the smaller tournaments a lot more this year. Thinking about getting a TennisTV account when I have some money free, to watch games live, highlights ect. It sounds worth it.

I reckon that'd be pretty great.

I would probably do something similar in the future but not this year considering I have *that* year.

I liked that "it will be a racquet".

And I'm sorry, but excessive grunting and shrieking is part of the reason why I don't really follow the tennis.

I'm not a January fan, though admittedly it's when I'm most into the tennis. You cannot tell me that Sharapova's shrieking is necessary.

If you don't like it go into a time machine back 20 years ago and take it up with Monica Seles. And she wasn't even the first player to grunt.

For them, it's a been a part of their game since when they began playing. Nothing's going to change it. Like Courier said last night, if you want to stop it, then try to prevent it in further generations. That's the most sensible thing to say regarding the topic, and it shouldn't be limited to just the women either.

Also Andre Agassi's little stories are great.

Damn, I missed the end of the match.

Go Maria. Go Rafa.

Shocked to see Murray fight back from 5-2 down in the 5th set...but not shocked to see him piss it away at 5-5 and holding 2 break points.

The grunting isn't restricted to the women either. Djokovic vs Ferrer in the QF's being a case in point.

I don't really mind who wins now. I'll probably want Nadal over Djokovic based on how much of a sooky la la Novak has been over the past 6 months or so, feigning injuries and breathing difficulties to excuse himself when he loses points.

Azarenka vs Sharapova could go either way. I don't have anything for or against either player, so let's just hope it's a decent match that goes to 3 sets.

I went to the Open 4 times this year. A membership might be worth looking into:

Maria is much more physically attractive and personable than Vika, so she's probably leading a happier life in general. And that's all that really matters. So, she wins in the end.
