Thumbs up Australian Open 2014

Australian Open 2014 starts from Today.

Men's competition is tough, both Joko and Nadal are doing well and will be challenged by the like of Murry, Cilich and hopefully Federer.

In Women's section, one Kallu is out already and the other one is on and is unlikely to be challenged by anyone.

Indian's are expected to do well in doubles and mixed doubles

Re: Australian Open 2014

Why did you pick Cilic for a tough competition? Federer is truly a spent force, I think this year may be his last.

Finals will be Nole v/s Rafa .. who will win? my guess is as good as anybody's .. but I wish Rafa takes the trophy.. Vamos Rafa!

Women's Singles title once again Serena Williams.. mostly.

Thats Del Potro, duno what was running in my mind, when i typed Cilic ! Berdych and Tsonga can also create upset.

And if Rafa can make couple of comebacks, then Fedex stands a chance too. One thing that goes for Federer is that he has been supremely fit throughout his carrier. Couch Edberg can help a bit too to boost his performace

Kallu won a slam in her 30s' let hope Federer at least reaches SFs

Re: Australian Open 2014

Fed has even changed his racket for the first time at Edberg's insistence I think. Lets see what happens.. Murray is back as well.

I had or still have big hopes from Milos Raonic with his big first serve and almost as big second serve but he hasn't been able to get past the bigger players yet. Rafa beat him easily in Canada last summer.

Khaski bhai.. Delpo to gaya

Del Potro is out to Roberto Bautista 4-6, 6-3, 5-7, 6-4, 7-5. Del Potro struck 28 aces but 53 winners compared to 72 by the Spaniard.
Did you see the new trend after Murray's success with his star player coach Ivan Lendl..

Fed hired Edberg, Djokovic hired Boris Becker..

Another thing common in all 3 cases though is that all these coaches are quite opposite to the nature and playing styles of the players..

Del Porto has been inconsistent with his form since he won US Open, I just hope he performs as per his seed, at least in big tournaments. Lots of seeded players have lost in women's section, including Kvitova. She has gained quite a flesh since I last saw her. Tennis players are not suppose to be so fatty-fatty

Nadal, Joko and Federer are in the third round, w/o much problem. Lets see if new couch are of any help to them !

btw, Edberg's mannerism are quite identical to Federer's and Joko too, is quite a character on court, like his couch Becker

Re: Australian Open 2014

anybody who is taller than 6'3" - 6'4" will always have trouble playing racket sports.. they can never move as well, can't play lower shots very well and sustain more injuries.. thats what I think is the case with Delpo, Isner, etc

Becker is totally opposite of Djokovic.. if you compare carefully.. Becker was flamboyant and panache flowed effortlessly. Except the mimicry thing Djoker hasn't shown flair. Lets see if he adopts serve volley style of Becker. One difference I noticed was that he has started to be quite aggressive on 2nd serves.

Re: Australian Open 2014

Milos Raonic lost to Grigor Dimitrov.

Sam Querry is the new ace uno, he served 260 kmph in his last game

Big guys have serve advantage too, remember Krajicek, Roset Ivanesevic?

I think both Becker and Joko got identical temperament, same with IceEdBerg and Federer

Just hope all of these perform according to their seeds.

PS : Indian are having mixed bag, Bhupati lost, Sania's mixed doubles match is going on right now, they have lost the first set ....

Re: Australian Open 2014

Ivanovic played a good match but Kallu was suffering from back issues.. anyways Sharapova lost as well, so it looks like its going to be Vika Azarenka's trophy to lose if she does.

Re: Australian Open 2014

Joko is out as well. He lost a five set thriller to Wawarinka, who looks in the form of his life He plays Berdych in SF.

Sania and Cara Black lost to top seeds after a double break and 4-1 lead in the final set

Tomorrow's Federer Vs. Murry is the QF to look out for

Re: Australian Open 2014

yohooooooo I was watching the 5th set and both looked dead tired. But so happy for WOW-Rinka and Rafa .. more so for Rafa

I think Fed will win against Murray.. since Andy is just returning from an injury and hasn't had much match practice. Also the way Fed played against Tsonga with his new racket I see a bit of edge.

Re: Australian Open 2014

I'm so excited about this new girl in Women's tennis.. The 19 yr old from Canada, Eugenie Bouchard, looks a stunner and plays very well.. She just defeated Ivanovic, so 2 Serbs sent packing..

I read she rose from like #147 to #32 in the last 12 months.

Also, the WTA female tennis player of 2013.
