That's too bad. Even though she's not my fav I'd still rather see her win it than Sharapova. Hopefully Kim shows up interested.

How would you feel if that thread merged with this thread? Anyway, I don't want to discuss this anymore.
The point is YOU are discussing Roger's AO preparation. Nothing against your honourable intention, but as you can see here it is not always possible to follow the theme of a thread.

What have Mirkalands and Fergies postings for example to do with the subject of the thread? They are talking about Henin Hardenne, aren't they? Why don't you complain about them?

Once again I want to insist: If there are pro-Mirka-comments, no problem. If there is only one critical voice you can be sure to be attacked from several sides.

I don't want a Mirka-bashing thread. There is no need for it, because I will be free enough to give my opinion about here, whenever I want.

Um I clearly stated my post about Justine was OT. But it still was relavent to the AO. There is no rule that the posts in this thread can only be about Roger and his preparation/results at AO. Of course it's Roger's forum so most of the posts will be about him. But come back once the draw is announced and there will be plenty of posts about other players in the draw. Especially one certain player if he gets an easy draw.

Re: ***2007 Australian Open Thread***

@JHH issue, its ashame the no.1 will not be playing AO. Now Sharapova has a chance winning it gives me more reason to hate her

anyway, looking forward for Roger

The point is you don't have any desire to keep the garbage away from real tennis threads. Open the "say whatever you want thread" and somebody like me will never glance at it. It's enough that the GM turned into the never ending gay festival= Boredom+ Waste of time.

And I feel like I opened that can of worms. But If Mirka was 90-60-90, I still wouldn't want her as a hitting partner. She can continue her coaching though.

Federer primed for open

By Jackie Epstein

Tony Roche says Roger Federer is primed to defend his Australian Open crown / The Sunday Telegraph

ROGER Federer's coach Tony Roche says the world no.1 is primed for an Australian Open assault after starting preparations early at Melbourne Park this year.
The Swiss master usually plays in Doha before hitting town but he chose to bypass the tournament in favour of more practice time at Rod Laver Arena.
Yesterday he looked fresh after two sessions and will spend more time on court today ahead of the AAMI Classic which begins on Wednesday at Kooyong.
"This year he got here earlier and I think it's a good thing,'' Roche said yesterday.
"It could be a very hot Open and the weather over in Doha has been very cold and windy apparently, so the conditions haven't been very good.
"Roger had a long year last year. Every week he's in the finals and didn't finish until a week after the Masters. I wasn't too concerned that he didn't play a tournament. He's got Kooyong coming up to get his matches in, whereas last year he had the injury and he probably needed to play Doha. I'm not concerned, I think it's good that he's here actually.''
Roche said Federer was two sets away from completing a perfect year in 2006 and is intent on defending his title.
The main dangers would include the usual suspects but also some talented up and comers.
"Obviously (Andy) Roddick and (Rafael) Nadal are tough,'' Roche said.
"I don't know if Lleyton's fit, (Marat) Safin could have a good year this year. A few of the young ones are there and it'll be interesting to see who breaks through with (Novak) Djokovic, (Andy) Murray and (Richard) Gasquet.
"They're the young guns coming along and you've got seven tough matches so you've got to be in shape ready to go to play five sets in the heat. That's what we're trying to get ready for.''
Roche said Federer could get better and was working hard to fine-tune his game.
"You're always looking to improve because you know the other guys are working twice as hard to bridge the gap,'' he said.
"You've got to stay one step in front of those guys. We're just overall fine-tuning his game and making sure he's ready once Monday starts.
"He's relaxed and there's so much pressure on the guy but he's able to handle it really well.''
