Given that they are now gearing up for the Australian Open, I thought it might make sense to open this one up too.

Interesting to see that Hewitt lost out to Taylor Dent last night and is out of the hardcourts in Adelaide.....

He claimed he was in good form... but doesn't auger well.... Maybe he is distracted by his new girlfriend.....

The **** is **** for all money
im tipping a first round knock out at the aussie open, thats even if he plays

i recon hewitt is peaking right time, the loss against taylor dent will help him to stay focused for the open, get the shock loss outta the way

Im pissed that Sharapova cant come cause of some Bull rule

whats up with Sharapova

Tennis what a crap sport

Love womens tennis tho.

Sharapova is under 18 years of age and is restricted as to how many tornaments she can play in so she has to come in and play the Australian Open without decent Match Practice and without Aussies being able to see her before hand.

Good to see Hewitt made the final in Sydney again today, after dropping the first set in the semi. He should win the final tomorrow now. Hope it means big things for the Aussie Open.

Federer looks like he will face Agassi and Safin before he can make the final...... Hewitt is on the opposite side of the draw to Federer... the first time Hewitt could meet Federer is in the final.

And Hewitt must win tomorrow... I have never heard of the player opposing him.

C'Mon 69, Young Novak had to make his debut againts one of the best on centre court- nerves would have got to him big time.

As for Sam Stouser- give her a break, she had to play a bloke :lol:
