I've not had much chance to watch the Oz championship, but I'm watching the final as I type. I know Roger badly needs a win as he claws back up the rankings and I have no doubt that this year he will be back in the top 3 but for now....  C'mon Rafa!

Hey Toots. Great win for Rafa

Didn't Murray do well to make QF's so soon after surgery?
Hope he gets back to his best in time for Wimbledon.

Yes he did Jo, and coped really well with the heat so shows he's as fit as a flea. Fingers crossed he'll be injury free for Wimbledon. I don't think Rafa  will play much more on grass.

You may be right Toots. Grass not good for his knees is it...
Gives Murray a better chance of defending his title

No, it's a shame but his game on grass is awfully bad for his knees.  I fear though, that Novak and Roger will be breathing hard down Andy's neck this Wimbledon. Mind you, all the top 5 at the moment will need watching.  It's not going to be an easy journey for Andy, but will make for some breath taking tennis. I predict we will be exhausted Jo, by half way through week 2.

Fleming and Inglot (?) lose the doubles. Where's Ross Hutchins?

Ono. Bad news. Murray and Lendl have split.
How is Murray going to fare without him?

sorry , not a tennis watcher , although my kids both play (just always drop them, never watched them either) we also played a bit of doubles in our time.
I have no idea what tournaments are when apart from Aussie open, and Wimbledon sometime in the summer invariably rained on.
Coming on our TV soon will be the world cup tho! (in addition to the grand-prix (s)golf and all the cricket always on.
