Great display of sportsmanship by Jack Sock against Hewitt.

Aus Open kicks off today, but with this bombshell hanging over its head: https://www.buzzfeed.com/heidiblake/t...Ok#.knmppwnAK2

Widespread, long-running match-fixing featuring elite players.

Lleyton now only needs Novak, Roger, Stan and some unknown world number 500000 that would knock him out in 5 sets to win the open this year.

Good match tonight though.

cobl04 01-19-2016 06:01 PM

Strange that he starts an Aus Open campaign with a straight sets win. Usually he wins rounds one and two in five before losing the third round in four sets.

Nadal must be struggling big time. Anyone know a good tennis stats site? Would love to know the last time he was knocked out in the first round of a grand slam.

The ATP site should have it, and so should Wikipedia. It was Wimbledon 2013.

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

Tickets are pricy though

Who are the sexy young women's players this year? Give me a comprehensive list.

Vlad n U 2 01-19-2016 07:44 PM

Please don't, GAF.

GirlsAloudFan 01-19-2016 08:47 PM

I'm sorry, what?

bono_man2002 01-20-2016 05:14 PM

Genie's already out :sad:

bono_212 01-20-2016 05:18 PM

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?

cobl04 01-21-2016 10:10 PM

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.

Vlad n U 2 01-21-2016 10:14 PM

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.

cobl04 01-21-2016 10:24 PM

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

Vlad n U 2 01-21-2016 10:32 PM

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.

cobl04 01-21-2016 11:01 PM

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.

GirlsAloudFan 01-24-2016 04:13 PM

Daria Gavrilova!

bono_212 01-24-2016 08:53 PM

Oof, Kei's facing Djokovic.
