Title: Australian Summer of Tennis
Post by: R.Griffen on January 11, 2015, 09:20:41 PM
Brisbane International just finished with the Sydney tournament starting today. Also the Hopman cup finished last night with Poland beating the USA in a mixed double to decide the winners

Well done to Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova for winning the Brisbane international events

The Australian open starts soon, anyone got some favourites or a predicted winner?

Male Singles Winner: Novak Djokovic but would love to see Stan the Man win it again
Female Singles Winner: Agnieszka Radwanska

what a game between Masha and Ana, obviously not happy with the result but a good showing.

Coming over for the tennis halfway through the 3rd round, looks like Ana should still be around so pumped for that.

I caught end, it's not exactly faster as you guys said, just to less... Doubt it's gonna catch on long term.

Caught the Stosur Vs Safarova match earlier today, was a pretty intense match although some shots made me laugh :P.
Title: Re: Australian Summer of Tennis
Post by: Bill Manspeaker on January 12, 2015, 09:03:31 PM
there were a couple of little differences. no lets, tie-breaker rules

probably something else. but yeah, pretty much the same game

don't see it catching on unless something new is added. maybe have like a super point or something? women play in a bikini?

The oldies only like it because it'll extend their careers if it catches on. It won't though, the rallies will still go for 50 shots.



Alize Cornet will win the female singles title. Heard it here first. ;)

she is decent, but not close to the top players.

like every year I think it's Ana's time. however this year it actually doesnt sound too crazy. Playing like a top 10 player regularly and just looks a tiny bit behind the likes of sharapova and serena.

Aus Open draw is out.

TL;DR - Aussies actually have a pretty good draw for once and most should make the second round. 8)

As far as Aussies go:

Lleyton has Ze Zhang
John Millman (I have no flowering idea who he is) has 26th seed Leonardo Mayer
Bernard has Tobias Kamke
Sam Groth has Filip Krajinovic
Thanasi has 11th seed Ernests Gulbis (Groth and Thanasi will play each other if they win)
James Duckworth has Blaz Kavcic
Luke Saville has a qualifier TBD
Marinko Matosevic also has a qualifier TBD
Jordan Thompson has Joao Sousa
Nick Kyrgios has Federico Delbonis

Olivia Rogowska has Nicole Gibbs
Casey Dellacqua has Yvonne Meusburger
Sam Choker Stosur has Monica Niculescu
Ajla Tomljanovic (who?) has Shelby Rogers
Storm Sanders has Klara Koukalova
Jarmila Gajdosova has Alexandra Dulgheru
Daria Gavrilova (who?) has Kiki Bertens
Arina Rodionova has Monica Puig



Oh and Genie should get through too.  ;D

As far as Aussies go:

Lleyton has Ze Zhang Win
John Millman (I have no flowering idea who he is) has 26th seed Leonardo Mayer Toughie but if he plays like he did at Brissy against Fed should win
Bernard has Tobias Kamke Id say 60/40 Bernard's way
Sam Groth has Filip Krajinovic 50/50, Krajinovic looked good at Kooyomg
Thanasi has 11th seed Ernests Gulbis (Groth and Thanasi will play each other if they win) Needs a fair bit of luck TBH, Massive upset if he wins
James Duckworth has Blaz Kavcic Lost in 5 last year where they played in the early rounds here at the Open, expect him to take this one out.
Luke Saville has a qualifier TBD Who cares, he's supposedly "injured" so why did he get a Wildcard?
Marinko Matosevic also has a qualifier TBD Should win
Jordan Thompson has Joao Sousa Has a serious shot against a bit of a Claycourter
Nick Kyrgios has Federico Delbonis See above although you'd expect him to win bar his injury concerns

Olivia Rogowska has Nicole Gibbs
Casey Dellacqua has Yvonne Meusburger
Sam Choker Stosur has Monica Niculescu
Ajla Tomljanovic (who?) has Shelby Rogers
Storm Sanders has Klara Koukalova
Jarmila Gajdosova has Alexandra Dulgheru
Daria Gavrilova (who?) has Kiki Bertens
Arina Rodionova has Monica Puig

I did the men's predictions but not much info about the women's due to it often being quite random.
Gavrilova and Tomljanovic are foreigners who came to Australia recently, and now supposedly represent Aus in grand slams. Gavrilova is also Savilles girlfriend.
Title: Re: Australian Summer of Tennis
Post by: R.Griffen on January 17, 2015, 09:15:43 PM
Savile played in Adelaide but didn't play too well coming back from injury, I'd say he could beat the qualifier if it's an easy game giving him Nadal which of anyone saw his games in Adelaide it might be a clean sweet for Rafa. So sad I grew up in the same region and had a hot with him every now and then but injury has set him back a long way
Title: Re: Australian Summer of Tennis
Post by: PowerBug on January 17, 2015, 09:21:29 PM
"Should" win, for Matosevic. Has he won a Grand Slam match yet? Wasn't he like 0-12 or something.
Title: Re: Australian Summer of Tennis

Don't ask me about the women couldn't find a win for hardly any of them Casey and Sam are that up and down while the others I think are underdogs and history says it won't turn out well

Who knows I thought not since he has been long forgotten so if he puts in a poor performance i don't think we will hear much about it. Lleyton's days are over he battled and battled just so Australis had someone to watch and now Kyrgios and crew are coming through he will let it be there team

Matosevic and Tomic are both super unlikable. Please tell me I'm not the only one that feels this way?

I never liked Tomic, that attitude is shocking. When he beat Kokkinakis, first thing he said in the press conference: "Now I know how it was playing against the best players in the world a few years ago." (Something like that anyway) Like, he's not in the best in the world, not even close.

Matosevic I felt sorry for because he can't win in Grand Slams, hopefully he can keep level headed, unlike Tomic. It's not a forgivable mistake what he did.

Title: Re: Australian Summer of Tennis
Post by: AaronKirk on January 19, 2015, 08:57:59 PM
Thanasi will win this one. C'mon Kokky!

What about Kyrgios? Back playing up and he isn't very happy, could be a set all in a minute.

Looking at the draw I'd be disappointed if Rusty didn't get to the 3rd round. He should be Zhang and I would back him to beat either Benneteau or Ben Becker.

If he gets to the 4th round probably meets Raonic- then he will be gone.

Djoker will make the final - has a very soft draw. Would expect him to win the title.

The Women's side? Kvitova would be my pick.

Love how he celebrates, won me over last Aus Open as can see the genuine excitement and happiness when he wins here :D. Phenomenal effort from a set down to come back and win it, Only got home late and caught the last two sets but happy I did! Agree with you guys, the forehands were pretty bad but that backhand was good enough to carry him!

are these guys even aussie
What do you mean?
Thanasi Kokkinakis and Nick Kyrgios both of Greek descent (could see quite a few Greek flags in the crowd for Kokki's match).

I think both Kyrgios and Kokkinakis will lose today. Winner of Kokk and Groth could play Tomic if he wins. So basically guaranteed Aussie in the 4th round to get beaten by Berdych

So all the Aussies have been bundled out in the women's singles.

We've got Bernard vs Groth, so one will at least make the 4th round where they'll probably play Berdych.

Kygrios is still alive and should win his match too, but he then meets Federer.

Yeah but, this Seppi just beat Federer. And Federer wasn't that bad today, Seppi was just that little bit better. Still, everyone can agree it's less daunting than playing Federer himself.

Matosevic didn't do it after his Rd 1 win either, he barely shook hands with his opponent before running off like a cow who won the entire tournament. He is a cow though so kinda expected of him.

Kyrgios at least doesn't look and act like a cow yet, but he can't afford to make that mistake too often.

I think what Murray said after the game was pretty on point tho; he needs time to mature. Andy at his age was just as much an angry, racket-smashing twerp.

I'm assuming this was the "time violation" call because Murray took too long to serve. Gets called out again in the match and loses the point. 3rd time lose the game. Basically by then you hurry the eff up ;)

I'm loving this Legends match ;D. Pretty damn entertaining, wish they showed more of them earlier in the week! Reminds me of the one I saw when I went a few years back, they play for fun and for the fans' enjoyment :D.

Any final that we haven't already seen 3 times before at the same tournament. We all know how it goes, Djoko in 3 or 4.

In the men's game, you know that's not as likely to be the case (though it's funny that the women's this year is 1v2 and it's 1v6 in the men's). Don't be so quick to assume though dude. I'm sure you saw Seppi beating Federer.

Murray was pathetic in the 2nd half of the 3rd and the entire 4th set. Ruined what looked to be an awesome final after the first two sets.

Novak is just a class above everyone else.

I love Andy and thought he played well but Novak is just ridiculously classy.
