Only Federer could make someone as likeable as Novak unlikeable. There's not a tennis player in my living memory who Australians love as much as Fed, and that includes Australian players. It's phenomenal.

Hoping Raonic can beat Murray. Like Andy a lot but have always found his style isn't conducive to good-to-watch tennis. He would take Novak, who will win comfortably, deeper, but I'd be pretty happy if Raonic won and managed to steal a set off Djokovic.

Also, this was insane. Shame Fed coughed up the game about 30 seconds later, but this was amazing

What a great final! The best women's final at the Aus Open in the last few years that's for sure.

Absolute belter of a final. Great to see Kerber as a first time winner. Wonder if she can build on it to win a handful of more Grand Slams over the next few years - she's definitely capable of becoming #1 and surpassing Williams.

Not really all that enthused about Djokovic vs. Murray tonight. We've been here plenty of times before and I can't help but feel that the result will be very similar.

She's definite quality but she's really not the sort of player that can or will dominate the tour. Distance between her best and worst is too great, and much is dependent on how her serve goes (for most of this tournament it has been very strong).

Is there a more annoying and frustrating player than Nick Kyrgios?

This is a fucking insane slam. Murray and Djokovic are both out. Zverev, a 20yo, just smashed Murray in four.

That's his older, much less talented brother, Cobbler.

The young Zverev lost to Nadal in 5 last night.

Mischa Zverev is basically the professional version of that typical club player who can't hit his strokes properly but still manages to frustrate the hell out of you.

The all-things-tennis thread.

Oh shit I didn't even know there were two!

I feel like you have to be reasonably good at tennis to beat Murray Vlad. Does he vote for AfD or something? Why do you hate him?
