Right, so the second week of the AO blew chunks (just ask Nole).  Roddick out, Nadal out...and out for a while.  Davydenko self destructed.  Djokovic couldn't hold it together.  And worse of all, evil empire won again.  Let's just hope the season looks up from here. In order not to have completely bad memories of this year's AO, I close out this slam with a video of Tipsarevic throwing his racquet to the crowd during the match.  Is this allowed?  who cares, it's pretty awesome




Who says he doesn't have any personality??

I don't love Feli's chances against Roddick, especially considering how well Andy is playing.  At least the sponsor still loves him





Maybe he should stick to acting?



Or not...

Useless Prediction

I was just looking at the draw, and I want to throw out there that if Monfils beats Isner today (which I do think he will), I think he'll beat Murray.   Could be wrong, but I'm putting it out there:)

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - JANUARY 20:  Andy Murray of Great Britain plays a forehand in his second round match against Marc Gicquel of France during day three of the 2010 Australian Open at Melbourne Park on January 20, 2010 in Melbourne, Australia.Gael Monfils of France returns to Australia's Matthew Ebden during their Men's singles first round match at the Australian Open tennis championship in Melbourne, Australia Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2010.

Janko lost a heartbreaker in 5 to Haas...too bad:(

Not a good night for the Serbs.  Djokovic was lucky to get through.  The score may look like it was a breeze, but Nole had WAY too many errors.

Glad Blake kept it competitive against DelPo...see you at the US Open!

By the way, is it just me, or does DelPo kinda look like a muppet?

Maybe he should investigate manscaping...

Photo Titled Fernando Verdasco wins against Carsten Ball

It was not exactly superhero feats for Verdasco, but he was able to make it through in 4 against Carsten Ball (a rather unfortunate name for a tennis player, if you ask me).

FeVer didn't play badly, but he had a hard time finding a way to break the big-serving Ball, and then hold his serve.  Glad he made it through.  Still want to see the glories of his Adidas night outfit.

Speaking of night outfits, is it me, or is Nole's rather....shiny?

What material is that shirt made out of?  Throw a few gold chains on it and some fake chest hair, and he's ready for a night out ("What is love? Baby don't hurt me....)
