Hey, does this exist already. I tried looking, but im not gonna search forever. So i think this thread can be used throughtout the grand slams.

Anyone watching Aussie Open??????

ts been pretty entertaining. Watching Murray collapse yesterday was shocking. Right now Djokovic is getting owned by Roddick. Well its 54 degrees Celsius aka 126 degrees Fahrenheit, and Roddick is clearly in better shape.

DUDES that watch tennis (am i the only one?... prolly). So the Semi's are set for the men and women. The men side is pretty cool. I'm spanish heratige but was born and raised in the US, so 3/4 of whats left are from either of these two countries(Verdasco, Nadal, Roddick)... and theres of course Federor.

I'm rooting for Roddick, he's been real fit, and has handled the heat real well, and if they dont close the roof on that stadium, it will be tough to beat him. He has Fed in the semi, while the spanish duo play each other. Good stuff.

Women's side, i rooting for superwoman aka Serena Williams. She plays the extremely hot and talented Elena Dementieva (see below pic, she's the one in the top middle). So that should be fun to watch. There a couple other ones playing the other semi that i really dont care about. If Serena dont win, then im rooting for Demetieva in the finals.

I rarely watch tennis, however when I do, I usually only watch the women. For one, a lot of them are hot but more than that I just find the women's game more compelling.

In the men's game so many of them are such big hitters that there seems to be very few rally's... just monster passing shots.

The women's game gets longer rally's and seems a bit more strategic.

That being said, I dont really make the time to watch... just if I happen to be home with nothing better to do which is a rare thing.

the fact that they're playing for 10 hours is crazy, but really it's a horrible match. nothing but aces and horrible returns... hence why it's never ending. bad tennis

I havent seen any matches... I've been pretty busy. Unllike the Eurobasket tourney (which I watch before work), the U.S. open is on during/after work, which I am doing a bunch of things.

I have been following it though... I heard Djok is been stellar, Maria Sharapova is out, Venus resigned, and America doesnt have any good players. U know, the usual!

Watching some doubles on DirecTV right now. Looking forward to watching Donald Young later today. Exciting, young American.

Djokovic looked awesome yesterday. So did Serena. I am pulling for Wozniacki on the womens side but I think Serena is going to take it.

that was a great match. Glad I had the DirecTV going because CBS wouldn't stop showing the Roddick match. Young is going to have his hands full with Murray most likely in the next round.

So far so good from my point of view. If Tipsarevic beats Ferrero, I'll have to watch him and Djokovic, one against another in quarterfinal.

And guys, you still have Mardy Fish, it's not like you don't have anyone at all.

Tipsarevic pulled out his match so you got your wish. Wozniacki pulled out a gutsy win, and Federer put on an absolute clinic last night, it was ridiculous.

Looking forward to some good matches this morning (California time). Isner trying to reach the Qtrs and Donald Young vs. Andy Murray. Nadal also plays later as well. Supposedly a lot of rain in the forecast though so we'll see what happens.

I watched the final set... federer had it when he broke Djoks serve, but Djok broke it right back.

Guybrush, we got another Spain vs. Serbia matchup!
