    They've got to figure out a way to keep Hopman Cup around.

    what ive been saying for months since they announced its going away. Love this event, you can see how much it means to the players and how badly they want to win for their team/country. Zero ranking points and it means this much

    Laver Cup and Hopman Cup are favorites for sure

    This is so dumb. Can't some faction buy them out? You see that, packed stadium and then they flip to a match with 9 people in the crowd.

    This Anismova/Kuzmova match, I have never seen wind affect the players like this. Anisimova can't even toss the ball for her serve. Shes all over the place

    Anisimova has figured the wind out. She should be set and win this match now.

    Wow Anisimova blew it. Literally looked like she had NO CHANCE in the 1st Set. 2nd Set looked like Kuzmova had no chance. Then Anisimova goes up a break, gets broken back and goes up a break 2-1 and consolidated the break to go up 3-1. Then she fell apart.

    Genie/Goerges time

    The great thing for her rankings wise is she’s basically defending no real points until like July. All free money coming up.

    1. Sharapova retired down 1-6, 2-4 against Sabalenka with a thigh injury. Didn't matter, as she wasn't going to beat Saba even if healthy.

    2. Is Jo-Willie back?? It's just Kokkinakis, Taro Daniel and a very good Alex De Minaur, but Tsonga looks like old Tsonga. He gets Medvedev next in the SF's in Brisbane.

    He did. Sergi Bruguera, who is the new Spanish Davis Cup team coach. Also won a couple French Open's.

    had a very good career. Got to 3 French open finals in 5 years (winning 2 of course). Lost in the gold medal match at 1996 Olympics to Agassi as well as 2 Masters wins.

    also I think famously pulled out of the Wimbledon after 1 or 2 of his French opens saying "grass sucks" or something like that

    Wimbledon was so upset they told Bruguera to take a medical exam to "confirm his injury"

    Wow. Never hurts to see Djoker lose matches unexpectedly to guys like this. If anything, it makes Melbourne just that little bit less predictable.
