Tennis Notes

Tennis Stars Cup is a free online tennis game. I think my friend, Dennis, might call this a mini-game. Thanks to JD for sharing the link.

Here’s are a few notes about the Australian Open.

  • I said from the beginning that I’m pulling for Djokovic and Davenport but I’m expecting Federer and Henin to win.
  • Davenport lost in her 2nd round match against Sharapova. Her story is unbelievable and I hope she has an outstanding year.
  • Roddick is out! Undoubtedly, his best tennis is behind him. Just as I’ve always expected, he will never live up to the hype.
  • James Blake has made it through to the quarter finals and plays Federer next. Blake’s best tennis may be ahead of him. Go Blake!
  • The stories of the Serbian players are inspirational. Djokovic, Jankovic, Ivanovic, and Tipsarevic have all proven to be among the world’s elite players.
  • The women’s draw is down to the quarter finals. It’s an exciting bracket. No matter what happens, all the remaining women’s matchups are intriguing.
  • The men are also down to the quarters. The top half of the draw (with Federer, Blake, and Djokovic) seems much tougher than the bottom half with Nadal.
  • Having both ESPN2 and the Tennis Channel broadcast coverage has certainly made the tournament more accessible.
  • Chris Fowler does a good job anchoring the majors. How does he know so much about tennis?
  • I like Darren Cahill as a tennis commentator. He fits in well with Cliff and Patrick.
