    The group layout, and draw of this tournament made my head hurt.
    I guess I'll finally know what I'm looking at when I see a pic of someone holding a trophy!?.
    Good luck to them!

    Day 1 and there's an upset brewing already: Kanepi leads Halep 6-2, 3-0. She better wake up *now*.

    I also like that he does the doubles in these tournaments.
    Him and Lopez or Ferrer could have a whole other career in the doubles circuit.

    The Davis Cup is one tournament I’ve rarely followed/know much about. I like the idea of a tournament where players of the same country play on the same team.

    Aussie Open is on! So far no huge upsets as far as i've seen. The time difference kinda throws me off this tournament usually, i can rarely see anything live :(

    Djok beats Fed to get to the final.

    Not a big surprise. I expected it, not only because how Novak is playing, but also Roger played more than usual in this tournament. He had to play a couple of 5 set matches and he's 38, let's face it. That wasnt going to be the competitive match we would see maybe in Wimbledon.

    I'm really rooting for Thiem against Zverev. I just think he's been so close to a grandslam that he's ready for the taking. He could challenge Novak a lot more than Zverev would imo.

    Yeah, Fed is certainly getting on now. Hard to believe he is still competing at the top level so many years later.

    I can definitely see Thiem picking up his first slam in the near future.

    And Thiem wins! I'm so excited for him. I hope he can keep it going and win on sunday. He's sure been close to wining a slam before. Let's see if this is his chance. He's won his last encounters with Novak, so we know he has the tennis to do it. It should be a great match for sure.
