damn, looks like he's cooked. Jim Courier saying he should throw the set. I don't like it, but he makes a reasonable point.

It's a sound opinion, but Nick looks like he's got little left in the tank, cramp or not.

On another note I'm sick of Ch7 giving air time to those imbecilic fanatics.

I'm sick of Ch7 pretending that they are showing things live and why would you have those ignoramuses Griggs and McLachlan on your sports team. Where the hell is Roberts this year?

Heading in to use the last of my three-day ground pass today. Weather has been such a downer this year. A lot of will they or won't they as to whether you'll see any action. I could only endure three hours on Tuesday.

I usually love a good upset, bit shattered Del Potro has been eliminated . Want him to reach #1 ultimately. Has never established any real consistency since injuries hampered him after his US Open triumph.

Don't like the look of him, nor really his style of play, and for his height and size and talent he just seems to have consistently underachieved.

First time ever at the tennis today... of course, I didn't see a single ball, spent the whole arvo in the Heineken beer garden. Was good though, Ivanovic's upset of Williams was incredible, Serena choked hardcore.

Loved it, and have to say, it's probably better than going to the cricket. Will definitely be back.

And you went during the 4th round! Try and get a weekday off in the first week and you can catch some high stakes singles action on the wee outer courts. Always great fun following players with lower rankings. And then hit the beer garden from 6pm until midnight.


We really are quite privileged to have one of only four Grand Slam tournaments on our doorstep. It really is one of the best times of year!

Yeah will definitely go early in week one in the future. Was desperate to see Berdych on MCA but my mates preferred to keep drinking in the beer garden.

How good's this:

Serena didn't lose it or 'choke.' Ivanovic won it and the match was played on her terms.

She seemed to be playing some awful tennis in that third set. Ivanovic was very good, for sure.

Can't believe he got it on an unforced error from Djokovic. Bit sad, I do love the Djoker, but we all love the underdog.
