    What a victory! The gloss taken off a little bit by Hadir's victory, but for Mustard and I to make the final after the draw we've had, and not having really hit top gear is fabulous.

    It will be great to meet Drake on the field on the field of battle, having shared many pints and women in the past. Should be an epic encounter.

    Admit it, you're just handing the CW players the win so someone will post.

    So awesome! Hopefully the East v West confrontation will live up the obvious hype. Really confident going into this and will be a good preview to the Davis Cup clash ahead.

    Haha actually no. Was kinda hoping one of the CWLanders would lose in the semis to avoid the thought it was a set up!

    Australian Open
    Junior Boys' Singles - Final (Saturday) - Melbourne (Australia)

    Boys' singles (Seeds - Finals - Section 1 - Section 2 - Section 3 - Section 4)

    • In the only Saturday match at Melbourne Park, third seeded FR CWLander Marcuss Deane has clinched the first ever junior Grand Slam title with a confident win over Sweden's Marcus Lindberg. Deane had been taken to three sets regularly throughout the week, but showed that his style of play left him with a tank full of gas as he quickly shot out to a 3-0 lead. Lindberg, though, was making inroads when returning and with a crafty drop shot earned the break back to level the score at 3-3, before holding again to be 4-4. Nevertheless, Deane was able to bounce back from the early setback to hold to love, and then secure the first set as Lindberg failed to return a deep forehand. The Swedish sixth seed needed a much better start to the second, and he got it as an early break gave him a 2-1 lead with service. He managed to bring up a couple of game points, but was not able to consolodate as Deane drew level thanks to a wild unforced error. Deane continued to press, and in the eighth game finally got his reward via a break of the Lindberg serve; going on to secure the title 6-4, 6-3.


    • Seeded players out: Marcus Lindberg.

    Well done Deane. Might be time to mix it with the men, now that you've thrashed the boys.

    Yes! Overjoyed by that! The tournament was definitely good for my tennis and it was brilliant to come awya with the title. Hopefully I can transfer the habit of winning matches across onto the mens circuit!

    Australian Open
    Men's Singles - Final (Sunday) - Melbourne (Australia)

    Men's singles (Seeds - Finals - Section 1 - Section 2 - Section 3 - Section 4 - Section 5 - Section 6 - Section 7 - Section 8)

    World No. 1 Jason Hall has successfully defended his Australian Open crown in a fine display against second seed Daniel Páez Blanco. In just their second meeting, Hall was too good for the Spaniard as he claimed his third Grand Slam title in four sets 7-5, 6-4, 2-6, 7-6(5). In their only previous meeting, the then World No. 12 Blanco crushed Hall 6-4, 6-3 on the Monte Carlo clay, but here was a different story on a court Hall has made his own with fourteen appearances. Whilst Blanco stuck with the top seed, he was broken late in the first two sets and seemed to be losing touch in an entertaining affair. But the French Open champion blew the match open in the third set as Hall's one weakness of waiting too long for an opening became apparent; Blanco attacking his backhand side with some fierce and deep shots. But after coming back from a break down in the fourth, Blanco could not stop Hall from securing the match in a tiebreaker as he took advantage of his first championship point to win the first battle of the world No. 1 against the world No. 2.

    • Seeded players out: Daniel Páez Blanco.

    Australian Open
    Men's Doubles - Final (Sunday) - Melbourne (Australia)

    Men's doubles (Seeds - Finals - Section 1 - Section 2 - Section 3 - Section 4)

    Heath Davis & Jojo Mustard have claimed a second Grand Slam title by overcoming a horror second set to win 6-3, 2-6, 6-3. In their fifth three-set win of the tournament, the third seeds proved too good for CWLand rivals Jefferson Drake & Martti Korpinen to hoist their second massive title. Full coverage of a fiery affair can be found here.

    I won't post the full rankings up so as to not spoil Heilbronn and Carson, but Delev's good results see him rise fifteen spots to No. 58 on the new rankings. Bad draw in Zagreb, though, against fifth seed Dmitry Orlov in the first round (Sydney champ).
