Re: 2014 Australian Open Playoff

Umpire even had the nerve to give a code violation for complaining. Should all be fired. This is disgraceful.

Mitchell has the break in the 4th, he will likely win now

Re: 2014 Australian Open Playoff

Poor game from Ben, should have taken advantage of Thompson going off the boil. Back on serve

Re: 2014 Australian Open Playoff

4-3 for Ben in the fourth, hopefully he can put this set away with a break here.

Thompson is annoying as f$&k. Lovely to hear him yell "gay!", when he netted a bh on the first point at 3-3.

Re: 2014 Australian Open Playoff

I seem to be Thompson's only fan here. He's the most negative player I have ever seen and it is beautiful. I want to see more of that.

Ben takes set four by 6-4.

To the fifth we go.

Re: 2014 Australian Open Playoff

That bad call at 40-15 ended up being huge. Both sets may have been lost due to bad calls, unreal. Still should've won game though.

Re: 2014 Australian Open Playoff

Well I have been up since 6am, sleep calls. Set five will have to wait for tomorrow. Go Ben!

Re: 2014 Australian Open Playoff

Just watched the fifth set and final result. Blech

Ben played timid, uninspiring tennis throughout this match. Stark contrast to his form in the rest of the tournament.

Re: 2014 Australian Open Playoff

Jordan's patience and fitness get's it in the end.
Well done Lad.
Lady luck on your side - JP Smith will be rueing those blisters, Reid reuing his poor 1st round performance, Groth rueing not playing and Jones wishing he could have played, but still injured, having beating Thompson recently, whilst injured with a bulging disc in his back and Mitchell rueing not winning in four sets when he had the opportunity.

Now for the speculation on the last WC - Groth under 175 (supposedly the latest TA funding cut-off ranking) and Kokkinakis the only two in the running imo.

Duckworth, Kyrgios, Groth & Kokkinasis. They should be the four

Re: 2014 Australian Open Playoff

I agree with both of the above posters. Those will be the 4 wild cards. Ben Mitchell would have been fifth.

Re: 2014 Australian Open Playoff

The changing of the guard - many changes to the set-up at Tennis Australia, at the National Development level. See the revamped website - is it Draper in and Woodbridge out ?
