Good luck guys, you are certainly getting a great run for money.



Both Dimitrov & Wozniaki appears to be getting better as the tournament goes on which is obviously a positive. Still big hurdles to get over though - Svitolina & Kerber + Nadal & Federer. In for another 2 days at least though.


For sure mate, but you are still alive and kicking well into the second week. Well done, and fingers crossed.

Wow, what a game!

You’ve certainly given me a run for my money E&E, tremendous to get both players this far without being knocked out, indeed we’ve had a few very close moments!

The second week now will be a lot tougher however we’re in there with a live chance. I am actually flying down there Thursday - Sunday to take in the tennis, races etc with a group of mates. I noticed the heat is also going to be turned on later in the week in Melbourne!

Bring it on .... 👍

Cheers Saintly, fingers & toes crossed

Couple of upsets this evening. Thiem gone beaten by Sandgren. Don’t actually consider that a massive upset though even though Thiem was 1.08. He’s not a hard court player and it wasn’t a hard decision to take Sandgren in the William Hill chase the ace promo.

Djoker on life supper against Chung too. Again probably not a massive upset TBH but I didn’t back him.

Have not seen much of the tennis , how good is Chung playing ?
Amazing retrieval , gets to apparent winners, is off balance ,but manages to get them back in play.
Out Djokoving Djokovic

He’s another great young player. If he could close out sets on serve here he’d have just about wrapped it up already.

Djokovic obviously hampered by elbow injury, great advantage to know where your opponents serve is going

Djokovic needs more rehab on the elbow. No point playing the way he is now.

On to the Qtr Finals now so all starting to heat up. Today Dimitrov first up with the men against Edmund. Working into form nicely now and would expect him to win here. Doubt Edmund will be a pushover though. Nadal v Cilic tonight should be a cracker. I give Cilic a big chance here and have backed him on William Hill Chase the ace promo. If he serves big he can take this game away from Nadal for sure.

Dimitrov in 4
Cilic in 4 or 5.

On the women’s we have Svitolina and Wozniaki short priced favourites in each match. Don’t know much about the other players so won’t give any tip other than to say I would love to see Svitolina beaten and Wozniaki to dominate.

Been some top tennis.

Chung is 21 ( I think )   what a future.

Federer makes it look SO easy ...

My biggest shock was the money they get .   almost half a million to the quarter finals ...       That's big dollars aye.

I have no interest in the game. However,  just been googling famous dead tennis players & began wondering if good tennis players can be short & or fat ? Physical stature of all sports folk has always fascinated me.

Don't know about dead 1-1 , but Rosewall, Hoad, Borg, even Laver and the bloke who married Steffi were never endowed with height fwiw.

Wozniacki has the draw to reach the final now, it has opened up nicely for her.

Svitolina beaten in straight sets including a 6-0 hammering in the 2nd. She was in the same side as Wozniaki so this helps considerably.

Next up Dimitrov.

Well we had a decent run Rosscoe but unfortunately Dimitrov couldn’t quite get it done. Didn’t see be match but from following it online it looked like he just didn’t serve well at all. Shame we couldn’t quite make it until you get down there. Oh well, next year.

Never mind E&E, you gave us a great run for our money! Not sure who will be playing who on Thursday when I’m down there but looking forward to it.

Keep an eye on Soul Star (a filly I part-own, been nominated for Caulfield Saturday,,, needs to draw an alley to start). A small e/w if she accepts.
