Any predictions?

I'm thinking Nole and Clijsters to win with Delpo and Azarenka as my darkhorses.

I think the fittest players always have the advantage in the Australian, since it is so early in the season. I'm taking Djokovic, and, for her first win, Wozniaki.

Yeah, Djokovic might get back to backs. He has been so efficient this past year and I'll think he'll do it again.


Don't really know about Wozniaki. Although I think Li Na has what it takes to win.

I'm also intrigued by Isner. Just not sure if that serve and his fitness can make it thru 7 matches, especially in Rafa's quarter of the bracket.
I always wonder why a big guy with good feet like that wouldn't take up basketball. My guess is he has tiny Kwame hands. I wonder what his #2 sport is, polo or volleyball?

Isner won, rather unsporting though.

Even though she lost, Sloane Stephens has something. USA has another player waiting in the wings when the sisters retire!

Australian Bernard Tomic in past 2 weeks has beaten #/7/#8/#13/#14/#22 in the world at only 19 years old, bring on the Fed Express!

Nadal looks healthy for once, which could make for a classic final vs Novak.

I got Djokovic winning the men's finals.  Women's is a tough call, my pick is Azarenka for the title.

my picks are still alive! Maybe DelPo can beat Fed? I dunno, Fed went straight Jedi on Tomic!

Thanks for the heads up. I was looking for the time of this match and somehow I thought it was 3am.
Anyhow, I don't know what I was thinking picking the cute one. In tennis, always pick the ugly cow, unless its wimbledon...
