Actually, no it isn't. It's hot and uncomfortable nonetheless.

But fuck.

Wow! Wish I'd been able to watch it. Verdasco must be getting past it or something? He usually gets to the second week here.

In other news, this Jones dude is getting absolutely and mercilessly raped by Dolgopolov after winning the first two sets. And he's not using lube. He just won the fourth set in like 15 minutes.

80+ unforced errors. I think that says a lot. He pretty much dragged Tomic back into the game in the third set even when Tomic was in such a bad mental state at the time. The only big thing I can get from that match is that tennis lost.

Dolgopolov is awesome when he's on fire. Kind of wish they erased the first two sets off the scoreboard though, it doesn't look good.

No Federer fans here? When he's on form he is by far the most enjoyable tennis player to watch.

It's more just Channel 7 being fuckwits about it. They shouldn't be allowed to broadcast sport because they make things shit.

He's ranked 37 for heaven's sake.

My girl Cirstea vs Stosur today.

That match was the best I've seen her play. Did just about everything right starting from targeting Lolsur's backhand.

I agree. Her unforced errors were due to over-eagerness, and not the rashness so typical of her. Ecstatic for her, but I do feel for Stosur. The most likable, successful Australian tennis player since RafteR.

I've never liked her and even then I agree on this point.

Fuck I hate Hewitt. He gets two sets to love up and then always seems to drop the next two sets for fun. Hack. Hope he gets slammed 6-0 in the fifth, though I'm sure he'll win it 7-5 or something.
