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

I called both champions correctly.   Cool   


Damn Novak is a strong-willed MF. Great game.

So true, his belief and pure determination is incomparable in tennis.   

I find that the state of men's tennis is, and has been, a healthy one.  What makes it great is a solid and very consistent big 4 (Djokovic, Nadal, Federer, and Murray) and thrilling matches of course.  On the other hand, women's tennis can be tough to watch sometimes.  Hopefully it can increase its excitement and keep up with the men's game.  Anyway, this year's Australian Open was just a great tournament.

Rafa´s belief and determination is completely comparable to Nole´s if not better, he´s had a bad year, with injuries issues and his parents divorcing, tables will turn Im sure, I put all my money in Rafa

EPIC!!!

One of the All-Time Great Matches! There's no such thing as a moral victory, but Rafa just came as close as anybody.
Big Four?Nope
Big Three?Nope
 
There is only a Big Two on this day. Congrats Nole!

He's like Serbian, isn't he? Well there you go...

Up until 2010 he would break. I'm impressed that he's got over that so stunningly.

I think the big 3 is legit, as they're all of comparable skill and can really beat each other depending on surface (Novak has Raf's number a little, granted). Murray is 2nd tier right now.

That match was so gripping, Rafa's comeback in the fourth set and then the whole 5 set was just epic.Definitely one of the best matches I've ever seen. Both players willed themselves, but Djoker came out  victorious. Congrats to bot Rafa and Nole for putting on such a great match.
