    I'll definitely watch Australian Open. But the problem is, so many of my favorites are out there. Federer, Richard Gasquet, David Nalbandian, Novak Djokovic, and so on. Still, I'm rooting for Federer and Djokovic. I'll be equally happy if either of them wins the title.

    I am glad to see Karlovic passing in 3rd round. Cilic was excellent in round one with easy 3-0 victory...

    I am not surprised by seeing Ljubicic thrown out in 1st round...

    I can't see anyone beating Federer though. He is the best sportsmen in the world at the moment.

    Yes he is a real champion players and won his RD1 and RD2 matches in easy scoreline. He is on fire and he would be hoping for 13th Grandslam title. We should wait for one more week.:D

    Baghdatis played well last night. Safin was actually at the top of his game. Playing well.

    I stil favour Hewitt to beat him next round, hes just to mentally tough especially in front of his home crowd.

    Still Roger to win the tournament, but Nalbandian has a good chance.

    I was hoping that Safin would win. Close match though. He just has so much talent, he just doesn't know how to use it.

    Yeh hes kind of loosing it a bit to much. He nearly smashed his racket into the ground on ten occasions.

    I found the story funny though about how he tried to climb the sixth tallest mountain. And returned after being half way up it. Good effort for trying though.

    Did you watch the competition in Montreal (Canada), from ATP Masters Series last year?! Novak Djokovic was beat Federer in final with 2:1 ((7:6 (7:2) 2:6 7:6 (7:2)) On that competition, he was begin with the triumph over Nicolas Kiefer, then he was beat David Nalbandian, then Andy Roddick, then Rafael Nadal, and on the end Roger Federer. Novak Djokovic is from Serbia, my country. If you are interested in his official internet web site presentation, please click here!

    Thank you.

    Yeh i also saw Nalbandian destory Federer in three straight sets. I think hes the only one capable of beating Federer.

    Like Jim Courier said last night, Federer is the greatest sportsman in the world at the moment.
