    tradercane whatever you do, don’t talk to Andreescu in the future. She looks and plays very similar to Bencic

    Fed absolutely pantsed Zverev in the Hopman Cup final 4 & 2. :bow:

    That should mean a live mixed as I expect Angie to have way too many guns for Bencic.

    Yep, this could get ugly. Only 2-0 in the first, but Angie is seriously on.

    Edit: And just like that, Bencic has come alive and running Angie around the court a lot more. Just went down 2-4 but right back in the match.

    Just an outstanding night of tennis. Amazing mixed doubles & I really feel for Angie who played great, but Roger got the Swiss home.

    Seriously, if someone doesn't take over the tournament next year to keep it alive, it'll be a travesty.

    (Edit: 'feel', not 'real', you dummkopf...)

    Man, how is Angie Kerber not currently favourite on the women's side after her week in Perth? At the very least she should be 2nd behind Serena - Osaka had an amazing US Open but it's going to be extremely difficult for such a young player to back it up.

    Just Fast 4, but Kyrgios beat Rafa.

    Genie played Vika very close in a World Team Tennis deal, which has to be encouraging.

    have I said how happy I am that WTA is back on TC? having a match like kvitova-saba on a Monday night early in a tournament is what draws people to TC

    unlike a steve darcis-ivo karlovic (no offense to them) match or something of the like

    In staying true to my Aussie biological clock, I woke up at 3AM today and watched Giorgi and Kerber through the first set tiebreaker. Good to see Kerber rolled in the second. I put some $$ on Kerber, only real concern is that she tires out, she's playing so well.

    For the men, echo the same. I think Roger has mastered how to come into this as fresh as possible and it's going to be his best shot at grabbing another major.

    LOL you’re an animal. Took Clemson at -1.5 but did not lock in any tennis at all. Also, would take your same wagers /1000.

    Pretty unlucky to get Barty so early in Sydney considering how well she played at the Hopman Cup. Considering how little match practice Simona's had, she's gonna have to hope for a couple of easy matches to work her way into the Open, otherwise she's a serious candidate for an early exit. :ohdear:

    I wonder if she regrets not playing somewhere last week now. Almost seemed a bit odd to me, considering how her season ended last year.

    She is completely mentally shot and I have no idea why - she's played in 2 of the last 5 slam finals. :idk:
