Australian Open: The Drama Slam?

With Nadal whining once again and taking shots at Federer, Djokovic taking digs at Federer as well, and the whole Tomic bandwagoning and talking shit vs. Verdasco, Bogo talking strike, etc.

Is the AO the drama slam? And if so, do you enjoy this kind of mentality as opposed to for instance the mentality at Wimbledon?

Re: Australian Open: The Drama Slam?

The Djokovic/Federer and Tomic/Verdasco thing is good because it's about tennis on the court and backing up your words on the court. The Nadal thing is bad because it's political off-court stuff that takes away from our enjoyment of the matches themselves.

Re: Australian Open: The Drama Slam?

I'm waiting for the Murray v Nadal final where Mr Lendl orders Andy to kick Rafa's neatly arranged water bottles at the first changeover. The two square up, Rafa goes for a cry then we witness a marathon 5 set epic with the highlander victorious.

Re: Australian Open: The Drama Slam?

It was only a few decades ago that the Aussie Open had no merit with players and fans.. and here we are now, fucking loving the drama slam.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

theres little drama, if anything. it's just that you in particular and MTF in general like to dramatize things.

Re: Australian Open: The Drama Slam?

You are forgetting the entire Margaret Court incident btw!

ROGER FEDERER

COME ON MURRAY!
Andy Murray: USO champion! Roger Federer: LEGEND!

2012: A reminder to all of those who said Murray would never win a GS and that Federer was done winning GS titles!
