    I love watching tennis. People who can't appreciate tennis have probably never played competitive tennis before.

    I'm somewhat disappointed Nadal lost. Credit to Tsonga, but I was really shooting for a Nadal vs. Federer/Djokavic Aussie final. Also, while Federer hasn't lost, he has definitely lost his edge. I've watched 3 of his matches so far against Tipsarevic, Berdych, and Blake, and he has really looked beatable. He's making a lot more unforced errors than usual.

    In my opinion, it's only a matter of time before Djokavic takes over (yes, over Nadal).

    Projected win total: 55+

      This Tsonga guy looks like a future top 5 player. He might acctually get there by season's end, if he keeps playing like this.

      Yea, I agree Sharapova has been dominating everyone. She hasn't lost a set in 6 straight matches. I hope she wins the open.

        I'm not so sure, i played pretty decent tennis till i was about 14 than got over it and quit (couldn't handle my coach, total ass). these days i don't even watch it, guess i'm just burnt out from it completely.

          Federer loses in straight sets, wow who would have predicted a Tsonga - Djokovic final?

            WOW, just wow.

            Federer doesn't lose in a non-French Open tournament.

              In straight sets, really?

              And television ratings are to hit an all-time low for the Aussie Finals...

                I did... Before the tournament had even begun.

                  Sharapova wins the Aussie Open in straight sets. She never lost a single set throughout the tournament.

                    Her constant grunting really annoys me so I turned it off before the first set was over.

                      Congratulations Djokavic. Anyone who can beat FEderer in a grandslam deserves to be the champion lol. I've been following most of the Aussie Open tho and I noticed Federer just wasn't playing very well (compared to his standards anyway). I'm curious... is it because of his illness and inability to warm up for the event, or is his age already catching up to him? He made a lot more unforced errors (especially with his usually invincible forehand).

                      I somewhat wish Tsonga didn't upset Nadal. A Nadal/Djokavic grandslam would've been more exciting imo. I expect Tsonga to be in the top 10 by year's end, but I don't ever see him being a top 5 player. HE has a lot of holes in his game. Djokavic's GS win tho really spices up the rivalry between the top 3, as he's considered the "classless" one of the bunch.

                      I'm interested to see how much Djokavic has gotten better, and if he'll be able to test Nadal on clay (probably not tho)

                        Murray has beaten Nadal in the first set in the US Open semi, would be a huge win for Murray if he managed to defeat Nadal.

                            I have also been "watching" murray work nadal via the US Open website.

                            It seems pretty amazing. I have developed into a Murray fan and i have never really liked nadal.

                            Federer and Murray in the finals would be great to watch & hard to chooseone to root for.

                                Actually, a lot of english folk don't lik Murray because he is Scottish, and also he criticised the England soccer team, but yeah, I want Murray to win :)
