    Martina was awesome. Yeah, Seles definitely wasn't comfortable volleying, but Graf was pretty good at the net when she needed to be.

    There was a nice mix of styles with baseliners like Agassi, Hewitt also doing well.

    sure she was pretty competent at everything she did on the court but she was by no means a serve and volleyer though...she was an aggressive baseliner with a terrific serve and a monster forehand who ventured to the net very occasionally...of those three, hingis was the one most comfortable at the net, an attribute of a strong doubles player...

    Goffin's efforts in Davis Cup have been absolutely heroic over the past few years. Apparently he is 17-1 in his last 18 Davis Cup singles rubbers (loss coming against Murray in the 2015 final, an equally heroic effort that year by Murray).

    After his exertions in the WTF, what a remarkable performance. He has certainly won my respect.

    Just caught that, bit behind with the news and stuff.. hasn’t played since Wimbledon? . Tis a worry. Heard some talk of retiring.

    Federer vs Zverev in the Hopman Cup. Zverev won the first set but looks to have given up now.

    Trying to work up some enthusiasm for the Australian Open. The Ashes have dampened it somewhat considerably.

    They really do schedule this too early.

    It's usually the best Slam of the year in terms of quality of tennis, but we don't know about how fit and ready Nadal and Djokovic are. Murray is out. Not sure about Stan, Kei etc. Federer looks fit. Hopefully one of Dimitrov, Kyrgios and Zverev will step up.

    i am fairly sure federer won't repeat this year...i can see novak winning his 7th aussie open...or even someone like zverev if he can conjure up the stamina for best 3 of 5 sets over 7 matches...

    Wow, Bencic beats Williams impressively!

    Venus has had a few early exits in Melbourne.
