Default 2014 Australian Open

Can Djokovic defend his title and win this years Australian Open?

He's up 2 sets to none and 4 games to 1 in the third set in his first match against Lukas Lacko.

Djokovic wins his first round match in straight sets. He's won four Australian Opens.

This will be a great Open. Warm temps and a very fast surface.

Serena wins her first round match, also in straight sets.

Default Re: 2014 Australian Open

It's very hot this week at the Australian Open with high humidity. Today they had a couple players vomit on court and a ballboy faint. High temps to remain for the first week.

Seppi takes out Hewitt in 5 sets

Rafa Wins

Andy Murray Wins

Federer and Del Porto won, as well.

Sharapova won the first set against USA Beth-Mattek-Sands. Sands just broke to make it 3 all in the second set.

John Isner is out after injuring his ankle.

I enjoy watching tennis, just don't have much time anymore. I remember back in the day watching classic Sampras - Aggasi matches.. now those were the good times.

I grew up watching Connors and McEnroe, then Agassi & Sampras. I have to say that we are truly in a golden era of Tennis. The Djokovic vs. Rafa matches are incredible and Roger dominated for so many years. We also have Andy Murray and a slew of players on the edge of greatness.

Default Re: 2014 Australian Open

My absolute FAVORITE tennis tournament of the year. I'd like to go one year (glad it's not this year when it is scorching hot).

4 years ago, my son was born in the middle of the night in mid/late January. I was watching the Australian Open and a 5 set match with del Potro and James Blake at 3 am when my wife started to give birth. I've always liked the Australian Open but now I watch it every year because of the memories I had watching it when my son was born.

Default Re: 2014 Australian Open

Jack Sock, Sam Querrey and Donald Young are the only Americans left in this years Australian Open Mens Draw. John Isner was our best chance to advance deep into the tournament, but had to retire with an ankle injury.

Sam Querrey has the best chance to advance past the 3rd round with his match against unpredictable, but talented Fabio Fognini.

Of course, American Serena Williams is the favorite to win the Women's Draw. Sloane Stephens could also surprise many and advance even further.

Not counting him out, but I'd be very surprised if anyone beat Djokovic in this tournament.

Rafa does look good right now, but this surface is very fast and that's an advantage to Djokovic.

Donald Young is the last American standing in the Mens Draw at the AusOpen.

The 91st-ranked American outlasted No. 24 seed Andreas Seppi 6-4, 2-6, 3-6, 6-4, 7-5 in searing 110-degree heat to reach the third round at a Grand Slam event for the first time since the 2011 U.S. Open — and only the third time in his career.

"It sure was cool to see him gutting out a very tough, physical match in brutal conditions against Seppi," ESPN commentator Patrick McEnroe

Gasquet lost in the fouth set tiebreaker to Robredo. I hate this because Gasquet has the prettiest backhand in tennis. Love to watch his shot making.

Joker rolls in straight sets against Istomin. Joker let the the drunkards in the crowd get in his head a bit.lol

I like Robredo, Gasquet has a great backhand, but his serving is suspect at times. It was a good match.

Wawrinka beats Robredo in straight sets.

Wawrinka will play Djokovic in the Quarterfinals. If anyone other that Rafa can beat Djoker, it's Wawrinka.

Regardless, this will be the first time Djokovic has been tested in this year's Australian Open.

There are stillsome 4th round matches to play, but the first QF in the Men's Draw might be the best match so far.

Tomas Berdych vs. David Ferrer 7pm ET Monday Night.
