    Re: The Tennis Thread- Australian Open( 14th - 27th Jan)

    Ferrer is like...amazing. He beats everyone. Except the top 4..poor guy . Watching the replays....Murrays serving has gotten much getter and he was thumping winners in the fifth set. But Djoker is so good it's eerie. The US open conditions were windy and awkward, the sets Djokovic won were pretty lopsided iirc? He's also beaten Murray the last few times. I feel like AO is to Djoker as Wimbledon was to Fed. As for wimbledon itself. It's Murrays most successful slam iirc. 08 Quarters, 09,10,11 semis, 12 finals. He's a great grass court player who came up a bit short.

    Yeah, Atobe, while Murray has improved, I think that the AO is Djoker's domain. In the SFs last year, however, Murray took Djokovic to a five hour fifth set and then Djokovic beat Nadal in six hours in the Final.

    Djoko is the superior player, but it doesn't matter that much in the big picture. He wouldn't want to deal with Murray's stamina card as the game progressed, so, he should try to end it before it goes to another five-setter.

    This final has been gruesome, Djokovic is slowly getting the better of this match but bloody hell! He's an amazing getter and defensive player. Murray really has missed some chances to have taken the first 2 sets. 4th set currently...

    Congrats to Djokovic, I think the best player won( extra day off helped but I don't think it was THE deciding factor). Murray looked really good in that first set and second set too; had he taken the chances to break that he had in that opening point, things could've gone differently. I felt that during the 3rd set, he was increasingly showing signs of fatigue or at least a noticeable drop in levels, and Djokovic pounced on that.

    In the end, Djokovic was too good for Murray, at least in Australian Open. He definitely has developed a particular love for this tournament, after all.

    On another note, this was Andy Murray's third runner up finish in AO, not to mention his overall 1-5 GS finals record. He has been pushed into the role of loser by the dominating forces of the game.

    Yeah, he has, although he did get a win over the Djoker in the US Open and a win over Fed in the Olympic Final (although that was only three sets through the SFs, so not exactly the same).

    So going by this we can expect a repeat of last years. Everyone wins one slam.

    Seriously though, you could see it in Djokovic's eyes he really wanted this, and he was determined to get it. Murray is more about proving that he can be a really top player, h is good, I do expect him to win a slam this year as well.

    I like Murray but....he benefited a lot from Nadal not being there . If Nadal made it through Wimbledon he would have beaten Murray..he beat Murray 08,10,11 iirc We'll see what happens based on Rafas level. He's set to play Sao Paolo in a few weeks!

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    Besides Sao Paolo where Nadal is expected to return, there aren't many other notable events in February. We have the Davis Cup first round happening from 4th Feb and I think a couple of ATP 500 events. We do though, get 2 almost simultaneous Masters right at the start of March.

    Adding a poll to discuss how many Grand Slams we think Djokovic will get this year.

    It might just be me, but I just can not see Djokovic winning the French title, for me it somehow always was the hardest, but maybe just because Nadal has been ruling there for a long, long time. He is coming back, I hope for a more interesting second slam.

    After the first rain delay iirc, in the 3rd set. He took 6 straight games after being down 0-2, then took 2-0 in the 4th....he had all the momentum before they stopped for the day tbh :/
