Grand Slam tennis season again. So far all of the mens seeds have won, excluding the 16th seed Mardy Fish. Favorites are, as always, Federer and Nadal.
Thoughts on the tournament?
Same as always on the men's side with either Nadal or Federer likely to win the major. I thought the Kim Clijsters/Todd Woodbridge interview where she made him look like a fool will probably end up being the most memorable moment of the tournament. I'd swear that I've already seen that replayed on ESPN a dozen times, LoL. Poor guy got owned.
I've liked the interviews this year. Much more light and fun than previous years; good stuff.
Already have a rematch of the US open semi final with Federer against Novak, with Nadal and Murray having their respective semi finals tonight. Can't see either of them losing.
Yeah, the final four on the men's side is pretty much as we have come to expect it to be. Upsets are always fun, but good tennis amongst the best is always great as well.
Wow. Neither Federer or Nadal in the Finals. That has probably only happened less than a handful of times in the last 5-6 years. I'm not sure that is good for tennis because both of them are pursuing legacies as the greatest of all-time in the sport and the sport is really reeling right now. But on the other hand, players like Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic are certainly players who have started on their own legacies and they continue to grow.
Men's Final wasn't too exciting but the road there certainly was. The Women's Final was amazing. Kim's last Australian Open and she wins it. What a storybook finish! Watch out for Li Na this season!
I didnt enjoy the men's final, for a final i think that it was not that exciting and am disappointed that Nadal didn't make it to the final
It's amazing how Murray can be so brilliant as long as the title he is competing for doesn't have the word 'major' associated with it!
He is truly a world class tennis player and some of the tennis he has played over the last couple of years, beating the likes of Nadal and Federer has been incredible - if he can ever win one of the big four titles, I think he'll win a lot more!
Murray didn't play well in the finals and, although Novak played really well, it's the reason he lost. Murray and the Djoker at their best is a match that's decided by one or two points - not three or four breaks.

Anyone want to venture a guess at predicting the results for this year's French Open? It's about 6 weeks away and the clay court season is well under way. I think this is the year that Nadal loses in the final. It just might be the year for Djokovic.On the women's side, I hate to admit it, but...

With Federer leading the pack in terms of Grand Slams, many are stating that he is the greatest player of all time. However, are the efforts of Borg, McEnroe and others greater even though they did not win as many slams?

Don't know how many tennis fans we have here on HP, but for those of you who are out there... what do you think?He's the second youngest to do it, and the first since Laver to win French, Wimby, and US in a row. He's now on pace to beat Roger's record of 16 slams (that's assuming Roger won't...

Is Roger Federer past his prime?There is no doubt that Roger Federer is one of the greatest tennis players ever but with Murray, Nadal and Djokovic all winning grand slams in the last couple of years is Roger starting to slide?
