^he's like the only one to beat him in a major recently though.

Gavrilova fucking rules.

Will be interesting to see how Tomic goes. He had a dig at Federer so I hope gets beaten 6-0 6-0 6-0.

lmao @ Tomic having a go at a 35-year old Federer for not being Djokovic when he is in his physical prime.

He played well but it was still a straight sets loss.

I have to say though I get very annoyed at the reaction to Tomic and Kyrgios overall. Yes they are both brash and can say and do some dick-ish things at times but it's the first time in fucking years that we've had threatening male players. Personally I'm much more interested in watching Aussies do well than cutting them down for behaviour that hundreds of tennis players before have shown.

Issue is the likable Australian players who have had some sort of prominence recently are just honest triers like Duckworth and Millman, and I happily support both guys.

Both Tomic and Kyrgios are imbeciles in the Australian international cricketer mould.

Pretty much, 7pm AEDT (local time).

Thanks! I keep typing into Google "What time is it in Australia now" and trying to math, but it's always nice to have solid confirmation.

Daylight savings messes things up a bit, too.

I used to have it down, that Australia was 7 hours behind us tomorrow, but then I moved to a new time zone, and my brain never quite clicked into what the time difference now was.

I suppose if it's 4:40 PM there fight now, that would make it 5 hours behind, tomorrow.

The tennis player I follow, Kei Nishikori, is playing Djokovic in the semi-finals tonight.

I'm excited. Only been watching since last year, but he's a crazy player. Which is a good reason why he hasn't won a major yet, tbh. He's wild, but fun to watch.

I'm so off today. Not the semi-finals, quarterfinals.

Hoping Federer can pull of a miracle here but I think Novak wins it in four.

Federer started the match in the 3rd set .. that is not enough against Novak.

I wish they had a 5 sets fight, some great ralleys though
