2006 Australian Open Roundup Durable Link to this BLOG
Australian Open Roundup
  • Agassi and Nadal are being sorely missed. The rebuilt, superslow-but-bounce-high surface would have helped Nadal a great deal.
  • Richard Gasquet, Gael Monfills, Andrew Murray (all heralded as "Future of Tennis") were very disappointing.
  • Early exits for Sania Mirza (2nd round), Paradorn Srichapan (1st round) meant that the "Grand Slam of the Asia-Pacific" was without adequate representation from Asia-Pacific.
  • The William sisters also lost early -- the first time both of them lost in the first week in any grand-slam (?) event.
  • Federer's got game -- or TMG (Too Much Game) as Pat McEnroe calls it. Great five setter against Tommy Haas will just help him peak this weekend.
  • Hingis is Back -- Martina Hingis is back from retirement (she's only 25) and looks good.
  • My prediction (or rather wish) is for a Federer-Ljubicic final in men's (to be won by Federer) and Lindsey-Clijsters in women's (to be won by Davenport).
  • Link to Australian Open Website.

Update: Ljubicic and Davenport have lost, so my prediction is 50% wrong already.
