    Sharapova laid a double baged beat down on her opponent. I felt bad for that girl she played. You can't even win 1 game? :(

    Is it really that bad? A lot worse than with Muz in Parris?

    It's the third match on Rod Laver Arena, which will begin at the conclusion of the Azarenka match.

    Just look at the schedule at the AO site mate. It's the third match on Rod Laver. Play gets underway at midnight GMT (1 am CET, 11 am local). It starts with Murray against Haase. 15 min later it's a women's match (Azarenka I think) and then it's Federer third on. My guess is he'll start around 4 am GMT, but I can't be sure. A lot depends on whether Murray blows Haase of the court or it will be a tough match.

    He'll play all day on clay in Mallorca. That's because he's got no injuries, but is underprepared.

    NSK probably has the answer even if Rafa isn't 100% sure.

    Btw, a few better matches than Rog tonight.

    Things I look forward to:

    Murray-Haase (because I'm Dutch, but Robin's in terrible form so I don't expect him to make any waves)
    Tsonga-Llodra (expect a not so competitive scoreline but very entertaining points, with a lot of cool netplay)
    Federer-Paire (because it's the first chance to watch Federer in 2013)
    Monfils-Dolgopolov (because both are unorthodox, entertaining and I think it's not clear who's the favourite)

    Really you like Andy Roddick? Man the guy was such a dick to chair umpires, ball boys, etc... I heard he even held up a charity event for more money because he didn't like the court surface... From everything I've seen of him, he seemed like a world class dick... Plus his results on clay were pretty bad. He was most certainly not an all court player.

    He may have been a dick and extremely frustrating at times but I miss his (early) game and the heart he showed. Plus he was a funny guy (yes, my views on humor is twisted) and unlike most players, gave credit to his opponents when losing albeit in his own quirky way.

    Murray tried to be a little too cute there, dont be doing that, you have the double break, just end this set quickly and get on with it.

    Also wind blowing the cup over, in b4 murray haters start blaming wind :p

    I tune in and Murray hits one of the worst slices I've ever seen a pro player hit.

    Fantastic winner from hasse there, not even murray is getting to that.

    Turns out that shot was the only good shot played on his service game and gets broken once again, Murray takes the first set 6-3

    I saw that match-up and I thought o_O.

    I hope Woz fans got their photos when she was standing on that mirror.

    Seems like lisicki might have that match in the bag, 3-0 up in the 3rd? Want her to win, altho those 2 should never be playing each other in the first round. Both of them are too good.

    I don't remember EuroSport player having such bad quality.

    Did the quality of their subscription drop since I last used it 2 years ago? I can't find an HD option anymore.

    I feel bad for woznacki kind of but not really.

    It would be funny to see her fade like safins sister or oudin though.
