    "I made more mistakes because he pushed me..." - Nadal

    There was a lot going on early in the match obviously but there was one point in particular 3rd or 4th or 5th game on Nadal's serve where Novak ran down 3 or 4 absolute bombs from Nadal, sent them back with interest causing Nadal to overhit one wide. It was absurdly good defence from Djokovic...

    2019 Australian Open SF: Rafael Nadal [2] vs Stefanos Tsitsipas

    That was brutal. How can you not love Rafa with the way he plays? Stefanos poses no threat to Nadal yet. But how can you not hate him with how full of s**t he is in interviews? He basically lies about everything. It's pathological.

    I really thought I'd be saving them for the choke-off between Pouille and Raonic but I guess the lolz come early today.

    Does ANYONE think Kei has a chance to beat Djoker?

    Novak's been doing enough. He knows he needs to pace himself, particularly with the conditions in Australia. Needless to say he's done it pretty well here in the past. He's only dropped 2 sets and has soundly beaten those opponents after dropping a set. I think he wants this pretty bad and...

    Nadal will beat Tsitsipas

    It's fair to say the match rests on Sits BH. DTL needs to be spectacular because he can't really rip the BH cross court hard enough or low enough to hurt Nadal. He needs DTL to be able to break the Nadal FH onslaught. Nads won't want to hit BH DTL on the run himself too much so if Sits actually...

    2019 Australian Open - WTA Thread

    How do people watch this stuff? It's absolutely dismal. Pliskova had her pegged in the first set very effectively with the simplest strategy in tennis: side to side. And now what? She's just going away for no reason whatsoever.

    2019 Australian Open 4th Round: Simona Halep [1] vs Serena Williams

    I can state this quite confidently as someone who hasn't watched a women's match since the days of Evert and Graf: peak Serena would've had Halepeno covered.

    2019 Australian Open 4R - [4] Alexander Zverev vs. [16] Milos Raonic

    Will Lendl walk out of the box? I would. Or I'd at least take the opportunity to renegotiate a better deal to sit through this garbage.

    2019 Australian Open 4R - [4] Alexander Zverev vs. [16] Milos Raonic

    What a great day. I received a new watch that I've been hoping to get for a long time, sushi for lunch, my wife has basically given me the day off everything, a nice long afternoon slot in my schedule for a run, I've got a couple of other things ready to watch if Zverev turns it around, but...

    2019 Australian Open 4R - [4] Alexander Zverev vs. [16] Milos Raonic

    You try and tell me ABZ is not a good lifestyle choice. This is scrumptious.

    Federer is done winning slams or even reaching slam finals, goodbye champ

    That pretty much sums it up. Federer is exiting the big stage.

    Tsitsipas will win at least 6 slams

    I hope so. He can carry the torch for my two philanthropic interests: ABZ and the Society for the Preservation of the One-Handed Backhand. He plays courageous tennis and he wouldn't be the first ATG to clock a few MTOs and time violations.

    2019 Australian Open 2R - [16] Milos Raonic vs. Stan Wawrinka

    Stanimal is on his way back. He drifts off at the start of either the 1st or 2nd sets. Don't worry folks, he'll be pointing at his skull and his opponents will be limping again in no time.
