The beast?

I did feel bad for her though, she would've won had she not hurt herself.

re: Official 2013 Aussie Open Thread


Huge point for Federer, triple break point to go up 2-1 in the 4th set.

I want Federer to win, but I really hope he does it here in the 4th set, because I'm going to sleep at 6

Squandered, Tsonga brings it to deuce. And Tsonga wins the game, not clutch from Fed.

Tsonga now with double break point. Fed doesn't look good at all this 4th set. Whew, Fed fought back and rattled off 4 straight points.

Federer gets broken, it's now 4-2. Looks like this is going to a decisive 5th set. Maybe not, Federer breaks Tsonga right back. 4-3 in the 4th with Fed serving to tie it up. Lol, Fed gets broken right back. Tsonga up 5-3 serving for the set. Tsonga is getting more and more aggressive, approaching the net, huge 1st serves, massive forehand returns.

It pains me but Tsonga has the momentum. He looks better, just a few less errors than Fed, but he's capitalizing on break opportunities and saving his own service games. Fed is getting the opportunities, he's just not getting that break point, or saving his own. Tsonga's 1st serve is going big right now.

Tsonga/Federer:
18 ACES 6
5/9 (56 %) BREAK POINTS WON 3/11 (27 %)

that's your match right there

Double break point for Fed right here to go up 3-1. He did it, biggest point of the match thus far. Fed now serving up 3-1.

Yeah Fed is wheeling and dealing right now. Up 4-1 in the 5th and Tsonga's serve isn't nearly what it has been all match.

Double break point for Fed to go up 5-1. Tsonga holds so it's 4-2 Fed in the 5th.

Fed finally making circus shots.

Tsonga also looks to have given up a little. That and he's cracking, making really silly shot selection.

The 5th set was very lopsided until that game, Tsonga saved multiple breaks and held off Fed. Tsonga showed a good bit of fight. Now Fed serving for the match.

Whew, entertaining match is finally over. Nearly a 4 hour match.

Federer looked too sloppy at times, wonder if he can get past Murray who's looked pretty damn good thus far.

Murray could definitely beat him the way he's playing. Either way, I'm a Djoko fan.

1. Half the players on tour will smash a racket on occasion.

2. If you wouldn't have sex with Serena Williams, then you're a homosexual.

I wouldn't have phrased it that way. Murray will be the betting favorite.

Serena is not into safe words.

Would you still do it?
