Margaret Court Arena is an impressive place to watch tennis. They've done a super job with the refurb.

Tickets are pricy though

Alright, I'm ready for my 2nd full year of attempting to follow Tennis.

I'm a little late, but, hey, it's OK. Kei's still in so that's all that matters, right?

Was surprised how sad I was as Lleyton bowed out last night. I've got a hell of a lot of respect for him after all.

I feel more favourably towards him than I used to, but I'm guessing that has just as much to do with Tomic and Kyrgios existing than Hewitt himself.

He'll make a good commentator and hopefully will push Bruce out, but I'm not going to miss his powerless puffball groundstrokes and shrill voice taking up RLA night slots.

What's wrong with Bruce? He's been getting a bit weirder with age but I still love him.

I just don't think he works in a tennis commentating environment, football okay, but it's particularly painful listening to him annoying Jim and adding little good to the coverage. Put Hewitt with Jim and it's significantly better.

It strikes me that of all the current coverage/commentators we have here in Australia, the Big Bash League's is probably actually the best.

He's lost the plot when it comes to commentating the footy. Don't mind him doing tennis, or the Olympics.

But modern-day Channel 7 expect their sports commentators to be especially lame and almost caricatures. Darcy, Taylor and Cometti were/are all better when commentating through different media outlets.

Yeah. I remember being super excited when 7 got the rights back for the footy but the commentary's been pretty disappointing ever since. Started when they didn't sign Sandy Roberts and Bruce and Dennis have felt like caricatures of their former selves.
