So who do you think are going to be the champions Robyn? I love Novak Djokovic, but I wouldn't mind if Roger Federer won either ;D

Serena Williams will probably win the women's :P

Any favourites for you Mich? :)

Not a great tennis fan, I prefer cricket and AFL.  I hope Federer wins though.

I have trouble following the team sports because there are so many more players on the court/field at once :-))
Much prefer tennis :)

I watched the match this afternoon between the two young Aussie blokes. It was nail-biting! 4.5 hours, they must have been knackered :o And such a close game, it was a shame someone had to lose :(

Yes Amy. Love it.  Was hoping the underdog would win this afternoon because he had come from 2 sets down and well down in the 3rd.  He showed great tenacity.  Used to play for our local tennis club mid week ladies a couple of days a week .... Love tennis.

So was I Jude, I was on the edge of my seat hoping the other guy would make a few double faults :-)) ;D Mean I know, but I wanted Ben to win since he worked so hard to get back into the game :)
I used to love playing tennis too, but I always got a racket with a hole in it ??? ;D

Bernard Tomic is through. He's only the third Aussie through the first round so far :(
