The all-things-tennis thread.
 
So we usually have these sporadic threads whenever one of the majors is on but I've gotten more and more into tennis in recent years. And I must say there aren't many things I enjoy more on a January night than watching a really good game of tennis on the TV.

Anyway the Aus Open starts soon. Who's your pick? I like Novak, and he plays good tennis, so I'll pick him. Hopefully he beats Andy Murray in a tiebreaker in the fifth set for the championship.

And Tomic may be a wanker, but unlike the cricket I like to see Australians dominating tennis so here's hoping he goes a long way.

There has been some bad news come through however - Venus Williams has been forced to withdraw from the Australian open due to health reasons. Sources have hinted it could be testicular cancer.

Shit, didn't notice this thread at all.

Yeah, pretty much been tennis all day every day for me. :up:

The draw's out, guys.

Tomic just beat Mardy Fish (world no. 8) for the Kooyong Classic.

We might just have something here. After years and years of obnoxious COME ON!!!!s and backhands and forehands into the net.

Oh joy, another dickhead Aussie tennis player? Because if he's another Lleyton - as you're kind of making it sound - then please no.

cobl04 01-14-2012 04:13 AM

Well he does sound like a dickhead. But we've been starved for years in the mens main and I'll take a little bit of arrogance at this point.

Axver 01-14-2012 04:22 AM

I just miss when male Aussie tennis players didn't make me want to throw, like when Pat Rafter was our most well-known player. I don't know much about him really, but he just didn't come across as a colossal bogan twat like Lleyton.

cobl04 01-14-2012 04:25 AM

Yeah I was too young for that sadly.

Lleyton and Bec :happy:

Tomic has a game which puts me asleep. It's a dreadfully boring game the way he just pushes the ball back into court before doing something. Watch Dolgopolov instead if you want an exciting game.

(Not to mention the hype on him, seriously, he gets namechecked every 10 minutes on 7TWO!)

Ebden's not too bad and he's pretty likeable.

Pat Rafter was awesome at the WTC on Tuesday. :up:

Roddick.

cobl04 01-15-2012 03:17 PM

Is sporting a shit haircut because his tennis can't do the talking.

GirlsAloudFan 01-15-2012 03:18 PM

Roddick, dude.

:laugh:

Nobody else picked up on this? Damn. Alas, the summer of tennis is here, time for my annual Sharapova avatar, perhaps.

Probably out in R4/QF. Pretty much a non-factor these days.

Vlad n U 2 01-15-2012 07:45 PM

This Tomic hype is even worse than I thought. Goddamn it.
