http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/video/live.html

HOLY cow, there is a tennis god afterall. All the great qualifying round tennis LIVE on HD cam straight from OZ. some good matches coming up, American star, Jack Sock, James Blake (What ? no wildcard for this superstar ?), Steve Johnson on NOW.

Bradley Klahn, next American superstar who has slain Jurgen Meltzer at the US open last year will be ON next. Go Bradley. :):)

LOL, announcer just said all these qualifying rounds are now best of 5 sets. this is brutal in this 120 degree heat.

Sartorius 01-08-2013 02:39 PM

Nice, thanks for the link.

If Young wins, that is a disgrace to tennis

Tammo 01-08-2013 02:58 PM

Johnson takes the first set 6-4 after a good 20+ ball rally

this kid Kokkonaer is very talented and is only 16 years old. he could make it big in the tour in few years.
And Donald Young will win the 1st round, he is playing a nobody

^^ looks like johnson will run away with this, is johnson 22 or 23?

22, I think. this is best of 5 sets now. no idea why the aussie open officials decided to change this to 5 sets.

I already know you are Federer fan, so no use calling me roger. though I am flattered by it. thank you, by the way

Tammo 01-08-2013 04:00 PM

Does college tennis really help? I noticed Kowsakis whatever, in the draw

Johnson really reminds me of a worse version of Roddick.

not really. Kos turned pro way too early many experts believe. He should have stayed in UCLA few more years or maybe even all 4 years.

TheCheese 01-08-2013 04:11 PM

This young Australian reminds me a lot of Djokovic. Could be a really good player in a few years.

his backhand looks like it could be better than Djokovic's. He hits it Huge and yet it is so consistent.

And a Djoko like comeback from match point to level in the 3rd at 5 all.

Also great to see this sort of live streaming from the event organisers themselves. I'll be down there next week live but it is always nice to see how some of the players I see at regional tournaments go when they get a chance like this.

merwy 01-08-2013 05:05 PM

Doesn't look like they're playing best of 5. It's 9-8 in the third for the 16 year old.

Tammo 01-08-2013 05:14 PM

Very good match, but Johnson needs this win
