  1. Some matches on day two maybe cancelled due to the extreme heat. We are expecting a top temperture of 43 degrees or 109 on the old scale.
  2. The stupidity of some people. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T69cgkLLXVA And someone had to put it to the jaws theme. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHdsUzsuk14
  3. Replay on here now and watching. Was starting to fall asleep last night.
  4. I think that it had something to do with the answer she gave right after the match about chocking and needing to regroup and then saying a couple of different versions later on. She also had another press conference yesterday I think it was to explain things. And we also love going for the underdog 9 times out of 10. Damn missed the fireworks, I know that channel 7 shows a bit of them every year. PS. Happy Australia Day.
  5. Murray won in 5 sets 6-4 7-6 6-3 7-6 6-2. Today is Australia Day (our 4th of July) and we are going to have an Aussie winner. Both the boy's in the junior final are Aussie's.
  6. Seems that Victoria Azarenka had a bit of trouble with a question on court after the game. She had 5 match points at 5-3 but Stephens ended up winning the game to make 5-4. Azarenka then took two injury time outs. She won the next game. Didn't hear the question, but they showed a bit of te press conference and she was being grilled about the question. 6-2 6-2 6-1 for Djokovic. Depending on the time there can be fireworks during the women's final.
  7. They are saying that she hurt her back during the 2nd set. 3.44pm AEDT - SERENA WILLIAMS OUT OF OPEN American 19-year-old Sloane Stephens has recorded the biggest win of her short career, ending world No.3 Serena Williams Australian Open titles hopes in a dramatic quarter-final. Stephens recovered after dropping the first set 6-3 but hit back as Williams struggled with a back injury, taking the next two sets 7-5 6-4. In an enthralling final set, Williams' condition slowly improved but Stephens went with her, matching the world No.3 both in the power stakes and also game by game on the scoreboard. Stephens faced four break points at 3-3 but and scrambled to save three of them, but went to the well one too many times, netting an off-forehand to give Williams a service break and a 4-3 lead. But the teen would not be silenced, breaking back immediately before holding serve despite Williams pressing her again at 4-4. Williams missed what should have been a simple passing shot at 15-15 as she served to stay in the match, and when Williams dumped a regulation backhand into the net Stephens had two match points. She needed only one. Williams netted yet another backhand halfway up the net to mark the biggest moment in the 29th seed's career. An overwhelmed Stephens said she couldn't believe she had taken out the woman whose poster had adorned her bedroom walls. "I think I'll have a poster of myself now." 3.04pm AEDT Serena Williams has just taken out her injury frustrations on one of her racquets, burying it into the court after losing a game to trail Sloane Stephens 2-1 in the third set of their quarter-final. Williams destroyed the racquet and was issued with a code violation for her troubles. 2.52pm AEDT - INJURED SERENA DROPS SECOND SET A wounded Serena Williams is in big danger of crashing out of the Australian Open after suffering a back injury and losing the second set to fellow American Sloane Stephens. Williams appeared to injure her lower back while serving at 3-4, losing the game and leaving the court before returning, only for a nervous Stephens to hang on to take the 7-5 after Williams won the first 6-3. Williams is unable to serve with anything like her usual power, although she appears to be moving OK early in the third set. READ HOW THE INJURY UNFOLDED BELOW. 2.35pm AEDT - WILLIAMS INJURES BACK IN SECOND SET Serena Williams appears to have injured her back and has left the court for treatment in the second set against Sloane Stephens. Williams was 3-4 down in the set after taking the first 6-3 when Stephens framed a ball that effectively became a dropshot, forcing the world No.3 to charge at the net to hit an awkward backhand winner but simultaneously put the brakes on. The move prompted an immediate cry of pain from Williams, who was unable to serve with any power for the remainder of the game, which she then lost to trail 3-5. Stephens served for the set but a series of Williams winners grabbed the break back, but Williams immediately called for the trainer, who took her from the court for treatment.
  8. And we are in DLS at the moment You should come and see it live one year, Melbourne is very beautiful.
  9. I actually like it. But I don't think that the US Open has it.
  10. Oh boy what a game between Djokovic and Wawrinka. 5 sets 1-6 7-5 6-4 6-7 (5) 12-10. Must admit that I went to sleep not long after the first set, but woke up to that score line. Hopefully I get to see a replay.
  11. We have 2 channels to chose from to watch the Tennis. Crowd is already piling in for tonights game of Tomic v Federer
  12. Thank you, There were the 2nd last row, and I used the zoom bit on my iPhone. It was a great game, espcially the 1st game of the 3rd set. Thank you.
  13. Now if this worked iris my point of view. Centre court at Rod Laver Arena. http://t.co/yFCMpZJe
  14. Yay managed to upgrade my tickets to Rod Laver. Watching Djokovic v Stepanek.
  15. 40 degrees wham Tomic played his match this afternoon. Now some 3 hours later and the sun has gone down and it is still 40 degrees in the Federer game.
  16. And once again Sam Stousor chokes. Sorry but being up 5-2 in the 3rd set and not even having a match point just doesn't cut it. Hopefully I get some good games tomorrow.
  17. Today Hewitt won the Kooyong classic and Tomic won the Sydney International. Yay next Friday now looks like it is only going to be 26 (79) sounds so much better.
  18. Brought my ticket for next Friday today. At the moment it looks like the temperature is going to be 40 (104) degrees. Hope that it will cool down before then.
  19. I think that your right. Considering that the Women's final is on Australia Day it would be nice to see an Aussie woman win it, but I think that Sam will be lucky to make it to the 4th round. Thining about getting a day pass for next week Friday - 18 Jan. Can see the tennis centre from the office window.
  20. Just thought that I Would start this off and give you a little taste from the Joker in the Hopman Cup. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZLdq95Ay9g Who do you think will win?
  21. Didn't see one so I thought that I would start it. Who do you think will win. I think that the mens will be between Nadal and Djokovic. The women's draw can be a little more open now that Serena Williams was beaten in the first round.
  22. Is it wrong that he is my favourite character. I do so hope that he finds Belle and his son.
