Was going to watch but it's on at 1am here and I've got to get up early. Would love to djokovic win the french open this year well actually I'd like to see him win all four slams.

I'd love to see Djokovic complete the calendar year grand slam. But getting a French Open is definitely a big goal for him.

She said in her post match presser, something to the effect that she asked if it was legal or not, and that shes a big coffee drinker and she didn't have one that morning!

Annoyed Azarenka lost. I put some money on that match and she had 2 match points in the second set and lost in 3 sets ffs.

Andy Murray is in good form, and should go into the AO with some confidence. I think the crown will be between Federer and Djokovic though. I don't think Nadal will make the semis.

I was suprised that azarenka lost as she usually does well in Australia.

I think murray will make atleast the semi and on the day could beat either federer or djokovic which is who I think the final will be between. As for nadal he's difficult to workout being destroyed by murray 6-2 6-0 and I know it was his first competitive match for a while but still it should've been closer, so I think he goes in as a dark horse could do well but it will probaby depend on his draw.

On the woman's side I'd like to see sharapova, ivanovic and lisicki(probably wimbledon) win a slam, also would like to see sharapova regain the top spot. On the men's djokovic and maybe murray just cos he's british.

He's being hyped so much. i really don't think he will this year. I'd give Kei Nishikori a bigger shot than him. Although, Cilic won the US Open, so anything can happen.

Hewitt should retire from singles.

He's not my most favourite player, but he is an extremely good tennis commentator. That matches he commentates on Channel 7 during the Australian Open are great, and I think he needs to make the full transition.

He will do once he retires :) Would be awesome to see him commentating on the BBC at Wimbledon :)

I think he could retire after Wimbledon this year depending on how results go :(

Hewitt is one of my all time favourite tennis players it will be a sad day when he retires, there aren't many who give as much as he does on court.

Nadal just lost in 3 set to michael berrer 1-6 6-3 6-4. Still can't write him off for the aussie open but he seems to be struggling.

Agreed. Amazing that he is still out there battling. It's been almost 15 years since he beat Sampras to win the US Open. :D
