Young lion...you bet -- just about 1/2 Federers age...he's 20, Roger is 38. Sparkling tennis.

I love Nadal, he has extreme persistence in the face of adversity. I wouldn’t expect him to keep playing for much longer though. Inthink his injuries are catching up with him.

Earlier in the tournament he looked like a force of nature ....Djokovic hardly made a single error.

Nadal got knocked out on break just to add insult to injury and Djokovic makes history with 7 Aus open wins.

There was no sign of injury from Nadal in this but he did state his coming back from injury was a problem he flat out got outplayed .....and Djokovic also was coming off surgery last year.

Naomi Osaka was impressive in her win as well. Not a great fan of women's tennis but she makes a statement on the court. US Open AND Aus Open winner back to back.

Sad to see Murray likely out for good.

Serena's meltdown was the greatest in history according to the pundits.

Enjoyable tournament ...and a glimpse of some of the future champions.

Really? He always seems to be just on the edge. Federer is great too but he makes it seem so easy.

Wonderful match live just now.

5th set decides all.

5 all and they don't go to tie break early ....has to go to 12 all before tie break...crazy that Federer can keep up this pace at near 38.

can't recall seeing any top player double fault in a while Djok has had TWO!!
Amazing tennis

Fans getting their money's worth and Federer just broke Djok ...if he wins on his serve he has the match ..wow :popcorn:
fuck ,....two match points and back to 8-8 :waah:

11-11 unreal tennis still....Roger has another shot at it....mebbe :popcorn: :popcorn:

12-12 - first ever tie break in the 5th set. :what: crazy

oh fuck ...replay of a tournament final winning point but Roger loses :waah: :waah:

Despite the crowd Djovic hung in there - classy winner. :cheers:

Well I did not see the Federer Nadal monster match but this was worth the time spend....so many twists and turns and just incredible tennis.

Can't beleive it's 2020 and Federer stays in game big time tho he has his hands full just now with Millman ..and Aussie performing above his pay grade.

Took the first set against a mistake plagued Roger.
Tie breaker in the second ...which Roger took decisively.
In the third set balanced....Federer on 38 year old legs can still hustle. :popcorn:

Big upset with the US wunderkin teenager Coco Gauff upsetting the defending champion Naomi Osaka in straight sets. :what:

Serena Williams also upset by 27th seed Wang Qiang.

Interesting times in Australia tennis...at least the weather is behaving. :coffee:

Oh wow what a nail biter.....5 sets Federer behind 8-4 in the tie breaker and pulls it out..... :clap:

all is right with the world .. :coffee:

Falling aleep and Federer loses the first set to an American who has beaten him before. :(

Wake up to the world righting itself again.

https://ausopen.com/match/2020-marton-f ... deo-149541

Not sure where he found that gear. :what: Master class lesson in demolishing an opponent after teasing him. Federer never ceases to amaze.

Problems in the Fed universe.
Roger won the first set easily against an opponent he had not met before and ranked 100. Sandgren.

But no spark in Roger and he lost the second 6-2 , down a break in the third and now off for a medical break which he rarely takes.

Roger is clearly annoyed as the chair empire courtesy the ball girl called Roer out for some choice Swiss German words muttered. Now since neither of them heard it clearly nor speak the language ...he got annoyed.

Out of treatment and looking a bit more energetic

:popcorn:

This has to be The Great Escape tournament for Roger again. He saved 7 matchpoints in the 4th set and then came back to win 6-3. Astonishing.

Now on to another fine match with our Canadian Raonic versus Djokovic :popcorn:

Federer is still great. He's just not going to beat everyone any more. I hope he's not still playing just to win another slam title.
