I've got my fingers crossed.

Still have Federer & Wozniaki @ $36 alive - got your tip to thank if it comes in!

Amazing that the women's final is the 1 & 2 seeds, yet neither has won a major.



Got yourself a 1.25 shot now.. Happt to help!

Halep was annoying the hell out of me. I could barely stand watching her. She would regularly draw Wozza into one corner of the court on her backhand side, leaving acres of room to hit a winner down Wozza's forehand side. All it took was a hard hit close to the sideline and no way Wozza could get there. Instead she would hit a powder-puff one metre or more from the sideline. Wozza would get to it easily.

And the women commentators constantly babbling about how high the standard of play was didn't help.

Clap ... great tipping E&E.

Watched bits of the Women's final, and have to say - great contest. They don't grunt and scream much after they play a few long rallies so why do it at all? They both played through the pain barrier, great courage. They do not deserve to be paid what the men get paid. I wouldn't bother watching another woman's' match if i wasn't invested in it.

This will be the biggest test for the Fed Express ... carrying MY money!LOL

Can't believe these fools are still deciding whether to keep the roof open or close it. Surely it should be announced by now. The commentary said they were going to make a decision after 7pm.

If they close the roof, l intend to smash the over 31.5 aces at $2.05 with the TAB.

The roof will be closed for the entirety of the match.

As a result, the overs on the aces has been smashed. $2.05 into $1.65 within seconds of the announcement. I just missed the top odds, l''m on at $1.90.

Don't know about that djebel, but she is easy on the eye, fwiw if you or pt can dig up a photo of Maria Bueno who was 1 set all with winner Margaret Court when she had to retire hurt in the 1965 open you will see an attractive women.

Not looking so good for me. My aces bet is now dependent on Cilic winning a set. That's not something l want to be on. I thought 32 aces would be covered in three sets as long as there was a tiebreak or two. I didn't envision a double break in the opening set. Especially not with the roof closed. Still in it but not as confident now. I don't think l can win if Federer wins this in straight.

Our Evonne was a cracking sort, and still is. Natural beauty and a classic elegant female athlete. 

1. Evonne Goolagong
2. Margaret Court
3. Maria Sharapova
4. Chris Evert 
5. Caroline Wozniacki

Not bad, but with the same benefits of professional photography, airbrushing and Photoshop, Evonne would have made her look like Martina ... and she's an Aussie. Tongue

 No doubt she scrubs up OK, but, not my cup of tea, not a "natural" beauty ... each to their own.

Cracking game with a few twists and turns. Certainly didn’t look like it was going to be much of a contest after the 1st set blowout. Credit to Cilic for getting right back in it and making it a memorable match!

Apologies for the blunder ( I'll blame the heat lol) I got Maria mixed up with Gabriela Sabatini from Arg. , the doc nailed it anyhow.

I'll stay out of that terrific "ad-lib' bait Croca.

Other than to suggest, Doc has his hands full providing such stunners.
