  1. Or that John McEnore actually got defaulted. One of the questions on Twitter was should he have been DQ'ed?
  2. https://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/tennis/daniil-medvedev-handed-code-violation-after-striking-the-umpires-chair-with-his-racquet/news-story/09c844087a80c82d888871c2374f2e20 Daniil Medvedev handed code violation after striking the umpire’s chair with his racquet We haven’t even reached the Australian Open but we already have a contender for outburst of the summer. Watch the incredible footage of Daniil Medvedev striking the umpire’s chair with his racquet. A chastened Daniil Medvedev said he will wait to find out from the ATP if he is in line for any further sanctions after he twice struck the umpire’s chair with his racquet during his ATP Cup win over Diego Schwartzman. After a verbal confrontation with the Argentine, which Medvedev said occurred when his opponent failed to acknowledge winning a point from a let cord, the Russian then took out his frustrations on chair umpire Mohamed Lahyani. Or more specifically, the chair itself. Medvedev said he was initially frustrated when he was trying to find out whether he received a warning for the incident with Schwartzman, before Lahyani ultimately handed down a point penalty. “The second code violation for sure was deserved, so I don’t argue,” he said of striking the chair. “In fact, why I got the second one was because I was arguing with the first one because I didn’t hear it.” Medvedev said it was “not for him to decide” whether the highly unusual incident would be taken any further. “Nothing happened to the chair, nothing happened to anybody, I didn’t break my racquet,” he said. “I would say I got a code violation. I will get a fine. Usually when you get a code violation you get a fine for code violation. I don’t think there is anything else to do.” After winning the first set Medvedev went on to lose the second following the incident but bounced back to claim the match, taking out the decider. With Karen Khachanov winning his singles Russia claimed the tie and moved through to Saturday’s semi-finals.

  3. Wow what a tie breaker between Great Britain and Australia.
  4. The air quality is very bad in Melbourne today. If it is like this when the tennis is on they will not play on any of the courts, and I think the same would be for the ones that have roofs. This is the view of the Tennis centre today. Sorry that photo is upside down, up it is right in my photos lol.
  5. I am in Melbourne, we are only getting smoke haze, but there are times I can smell the fire. Did see a Kangaroo around the corner from where I live, and I am only a 20 minute train trip from the city.
  6. I have rain here at the moment but it really needs to go a lot further east. There are now more tennis players following Nik’s pledge as well as cricketers and basket ballers. Yes the smoke haze went all the way to New Zealand, and will spread to other parts of Australia, but I think this will depend on the speed and direction of the winds.
  7. The tournament that was meant to have been played in. Canberra has been moved to Bendigo in Victoria. It is the east coast that is pretty much in flames. We really need the rain to assist the firefighters.
  8. Nadal will need to pull something out of his shorts, if he is going to make this last longer than 3 sets.
  9. Henry is so funny in these matches
  10. I just wonder had that Semi been Barty v Collins just how much the Aussie crowd would have given it to Collins. Looks like heat policy will come in again 103 right now with it expected to get to 111 before the cool change comes through, an uncomfortable 91 overnight.
  11. Waiting for the day, for when they suspend play due to the player screeching lol.
  12. 3m agoJanuary 24, 2019 Joe Barton Play has been suspended for wheelchair matches due to the heat. And close to being suspended for all other matches. Currently 39 degrees or 102F, Expected to get to 84 overnight with a high of approx 105 - 110 tomorrow. TO update 5m agoJanuary 24, 2019 PLAY SUSPENDED Joe Barton IT'S officially too hot to play. The tournament referee Wayne McKewen has officially deemed that the head stress scale has reached 5.0, meaning play on outside courts is suspended and the roof of Rod Laver Arena is to be closed. Petra Kvitova and Danielle Collins are waiting in the shade until the roof is fully closed, which should only take a few minutes. All play on outside courts has been stopped. Gee reading the updates, someone is not happy at all. 2m agoJanuary 24, 2019HIGHLIGHT Collins fumes as roof closed due to heat Joe Barton The heat stress reading has hit 5! That's a suspension of play on all outside courts, and it will lead to the roof being closed on Rod Laver Arena. A smiles comes over the face of Petra Kvitova, because this will certainly advantage her now. Collins was thriving in the heat, and she's probably the only person at Rod Laver Arena who not happy about that one. There's a huge cheer from the crowd, but Collins

  16. Checking in from Melbourne Arena formerly Hisense Arena, first up is Kevin Anderson. Gonna be a hot day. May do some Facebook Live.
  17. From our daily paper. https://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/tennis/andy-murray-confirms-he-will-retire-from-tennis-at-wimbledon/news-story/be78861a27f681042e2532974ceff4bf Andy Murray confirms he will retire from tennis at Wimbledon Leo Schlink, Herald Sun 11 minutes ago Subscriber only Andy Murray concedes the Australian Open could be his last tournament after outlining plans to retire. The former world No 1 fought back tears as he revealed he has decided to quit the sport because of chronic hip soreness. Struggling with the pain on a daily basis, Murray said that while he could well call time at the conclusion of his Melbourne campaign, he hopes to make it to his home grand slam at Wimbledon and end his career in front of a home crowd. The Scot, 31, broke down emotionally when asked about his fitness after barely surviving a practice session with Novak Djokovic yesterday. “Not great,” he said before excusing himself and leaving the interview room. When he returned, the dual Wimbledon champion and US Open winner said: “So I’m not feeling great. “Been struggling for a long time, I’ve been in a lot of pain for probably about 20 months. “I’ve pretty much done everything I could get my hip feeling better. “I’m in a better place than I was six months ago but I’m still in a lot of pain. “It’s been tough.” Murray agreed the Australian Open, where has lost five finals (2009-10, ’13, 15-16), could be the last of his astonishing career. The baseliner said he could still “play to a level, but not a level I’m happy about.” Murray told his team during the off-season of his plans to bow out at Wimbledon. He said he could undergo further surgery this year but that would be to help him post-career. Murray is due to face Roberto Bautista-Agut in the first round at Melbourne Park.
  18. Seeds for the Aussie Open https://ausopen.com/news-media/seeds-are-set-australian-open-2019
  19. Can he be any more of a flog, so hoping I don’t get either one as a match at the Aust Open. https://www.foxsports.com.au/video/tennis/tennis/bernies-bizarre-match-point!713740?nk=4746b5d1a76db1af7b3533ed5ca529c9-1547015724
  20. Got my three day ground pass for the Aust Open. Now hoping that I watch where I walk and don’t end up in the hospital.
  21. Didn’t an umpire award a march to an opponent of his in the Aust Open one year when he pushed his luck one to many times.
  22. Rafa Update OUCH, would be more painful than the fall I took at Tennis last Wednesday. RAFA SET FOR STINT ON SIDELINES LEO SCHLINK on the Spaniard's leg injury... RAFAEL Nadal will be sidelined for three weeks after being diagnosed with a torn anterior hip muscle during Australian Open quarter-final defeat. The Spaniard's management confirmed he visited a Melbourne hospital today for a MRI. "The MRI showed a grade 1 injury of his illiopsoas on his right leg," the statement said. "He will be resting the next days once back in Spin and will start with anti-inflammatory (and) physiotherapy. "He will his rehabilitation and pre-adaptation process to the tennis court in two weeks, starting progressively his training and practice. "Three weeks is the normal time to totally recover and he will resume his tennis schedule as planned, playing Acapulco (in late February), Indian Wells and Miami." Nadal was forced to withdraw when trailing Marin Cilic 0-2 in the fifth set last night.
  23. Think you may like this. RESPECT! Great ovation for Rod Laver as he entered the building named after himself. And a nice touch from Tennys Sandgren, too. Kinda seems like the American could do with some good PR at the moment.
