And you can have 'em . . . But they'll be home once they get their tax bills.

Taxes are merely a byproduct of our social system. Free health care, welfare and a number of other things. Should you fall on hard times our government will catch you. So nice of them :angel: :p

Good night everyone! For you guys who will see Lleyton's match, please cheer for me :wavey:

:lol: really? that takes talent! I think Lleyton can beat him but Blake is the kind of consistent (well, except when he hits 89 ues ;) ) guy who can take out a top player on the right day.

I liked him much better when he had hair though :lol: He's not nearly so attractive bald.

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 12:02 AM
Safin is totally hilarious, even when he doesn't mean to be. I am so glad he's back at the top - he really mixes things up :)

Actually, I have to say that Fed, Roddick, Hewitt and Safin are about as an ideal top 4 as you could get. Different styles, personalities etc and each has the measure of different combinations of the others. Well, Fed has them all right now but hopefully you know what I mean!

Uh-huh :p

True, but I think it all depends on LL. If he is at the top of his game, then it 'should' be straight sets.

Meh, I've never really paid attention much to his looks :p Though, sometimes when I see him now, it takes me a while to recognise him without the dreadlocks :p

That's a pretty good assessment Jane :worship: All we need to do is find the ideal player to eject Roddick from that little square :p However, it healthy to have someone in the top 4 that you can consistently root against :p It's all part of the fun and games :p

"We know what happens when the men come and watch women play... they want something."
Martina Navratilova tells Australia's Channel 7 after Spanish tennis star Juan Carlos Ferrero comes to watch Russian teenager Maria Sharapova in action.

"I've won a lot of tournaments, but I still come second at home."

Indian woman makes tennis history :) :)

Mirza meets Serena Williams in the next round
Teenager Sania Mirza has become the first Indian woman to reach the third round of a Grand Slam tennis event.
The 18-year-old Mirza, who got a wild card entry into the Australian Open in Melbourne, beat Hungarian Petra Mandula 6-2, 6-1 in the second round.

Mirza, who is ranked 166, will now play women's favourite Serena Williams in the next round on Friday.

The only other Indian woman to win a match at a Grand Slam is Nirupama Vaidyanathan.

Vaidyanathan made it to the second round of the Australian Open in 1998.

Seven years later, Mirza needed just 50 minutes to beat Mandula, a former French Open quarterfinalist, to sail into the third round.

I'm really looking forward to finding out how hard she hits the ball

Sania Mirza on her upcoming match with Serena Williams
"I'm really excited. I was confident but I didn't think it was going to be that easy," Mirza said after her second round win.

"My aim was to win a round here. When I did that I was so relieved, there was no pressure."

'Too small'

Now Mirza, who is a former Wimbledon junior doubles champion, is keenly awaiting her contest with Serena Williams.

"I'm really looking forward to finding out how hard she hits the ball," said Mirza.

Williams admits that she has never heard of her young rival in the next round.

"I am pretty sure she's heard of me though :rolleyes: and she'll be ready to play my game," she said of Mirza.

Mirza, who lives in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad known for producing a host of top Indian cricketers, turned professional two years ago.

She says she was considered too small when she went for her first tennis classes as a six-year-old girl.

"Then finally [the coach] called my parents up and said 'the way she hits the ball, I've never seen a six-year-old hit a ball like that'," Mirza told the Associated Press.

"On the court I feel okay, but now when I stop playing I feel very tired, and I think I'll go straight to bed again. So, hopefully, tomorrow I feel better. But on the court it's okay. I feel weak, but what can I do? The only chance is that I keep fighting...so far it works. It looks like a flu...I hope it's not SARS." -- German Rainer Schuettler in Rome.

"I'm almost in the Top 50. Looking back, I used to go down the list of guys that were in the Top 50. I'd say, `Those guys are so good. Hopefully I'll get there someday.' Now looking at the rankings and seeing my name there is special to me." -- Star-struck American Mardy Fish, trying to figure out if he'll settle for Top 50.

"Capriati's unregenerate vulgarity is the worst-kept secret in the sport. (The list of transgressions and fits of pique is too long to catalog here, but when you call Billie Jean King "Hitler," you've pretty much surrendered your boarding pass, far as we're concerned.) One well-regarded top player recently told me that "Jennifer is her own worst enemy." But the real sadness is that her "management team," such as it is, capitulates to her demands, excuses her obscene behavior and furnishes her with no apparent guidance." -- John Wertheim writing for SI.com.

Hell, Kim's been gone so long I hardly remember what she looks like :p

But thanks to my av we always remember what her ass looks like :unsure: :p

Ooh, Sandra De Jenken is doing this match :p You know, I don't think I can remember seeing a woman do a men's match before.

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 03:53 AM
Crikey, if Peng could just keep Venus hot pink and zebra stripes out there for 2 hours I might be able to watch Lleyton :lol: Though they'll probably stop broadcasting for the all important Home and Away :rolleyes:

Chesty Larue
01-20-2005, 03:53 AM
Hip Hip Hooray! :bounce: :yippee:

omg it's De Jenkin in the chair for the Nadal match! :fiery:

And she just said she couldn't over rule on the baseline!! *pops several brain cells* Where the hell was that last year?! :mad:

Murkofan
01-20-2005, 03:55 AM
Linds is being really complimentary about her opponent's play. Take a hint, Deux :rolleyes:

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 03:58 AM
Wow :eek: that's cool. Next they'll have women trainers for the men. applications anyone? :lol:

She was the ladies' final umpire in Sydney. She seems quite good - good rapport with the players. Now you're about to tell me she was behind some major stuff up, aren't you?

Also, she was announced as French. Is de Jenken a French name? Mind you the Swedish doubles umpire was called Mohammed something so :lol:

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 04:00 AM
Uh oh, I think de jenken is coming back to me now :o

Nathan Healey, if you keep getting broken on the first game of every set, no matter what else you do, you will lose.

Murkofan

She learned her lesson :p

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 04:02 AM
Lindsay is a class act. She might not be the prettiest or the flashiest or even the most successful (though 3 slams and 2 bouts at #1 are nothing to sneeze at!) but she's one of the ones young players should aspire to be like.

Chesty Larue
01-20-2005, 04:03 AM
She learned her lesson :p

Wonderful :p

Thanks for learning it on Kim Sandra..we appreciate it :p

Coria/Mello is taking foreeeeeeeever.

Lisbeth

Fung Shui's ball toss looks high.

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 04:35 AM
Peng broke Venus :eek:

The reason you never heard of her is because she was ranked quite low last year, but she's had a great couple of weeks. Lost to Molik in the semis in Sydney. I know she had an even bigger rise than Stosur!

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 04:37 AM

How can Venus run around in those massive earrings? Her overall outfit is much better than Deux's, though :p

Lisbeth

Pff Venus broke back. Actually I don't mind venus, but cheering against the williamses seems to be an instinct ;)

Dude those are unattractive :o

Good question :lol:

Come on Peng!

I don't mean to hyper-critical or anything, but those shorts Venus is wearing sure shows off the junk in her trunk :p

Murkofan
01-20-2005, 05:10 AM
Lost :yeah:

I don't have school tomorrow, but I don't know how much longer I'll be up. I'm getting veeeeeeery sleeeeeepy :p

Brad Gilbert is, like I feared, doing commentary for ESPN :tape: Despite the other's suckiness (not the Pamminator, of cours ;)) it's made me realize that I didn't truly know what annoying commentary was before this.

Ooh, it's like Bizarro World :D

Yeah it's suppose to be like the flip of the current universe..so everyone has a duplicate in the mirror universe.

Usually they're all evil asshats in the mirror :D Except Captain Archer..he's already an asshat so maybe his mirror uni self will be nice :p

Anyhoo small stuff that spoilers have..Mayweather beating a prisoner for info at Archer's command :devil:

Christophe not doing so well :sad:

Venus just won. Getting nervous :scared: No I shouldn't be scared :o

Chesty Larue
01-20-2005, 05:42 AM
This is why I'm only invested in Kim..I couldn't handle being nervous for Lleyton too :p

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 05:46 AM
:lol: fair enough. And the first week is a LOT more nerve wracking for the gentlemen than the ladies ;)

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 06:07 AM
Nadal's and Coria's matches both over 3.5 hours :eek: no wonder they seemed long!

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 06:13 AM
COME ON!

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 06:18 AM
Ll had break point but didn't convert ...

I guess I might head off unless someone else shows up. Otherwise I feel like I'm writing the world's most boring blog ;)

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 06:23 AM
Oh !@#$ now Blake has break point.

01-20-2005, 06:23 AM
Deuce :)

Chesty Larue
01-20-2005, 06:25 AM
Pat McEnroe...Blake's plan will be to attack Blake's backhand so he can push Blake back :scratch:

Crap, crap, :ras:

C'MON!

Chesty Larue

Blake playing good.

Lisbeth

From the stats, it looks like Blake is playing well.

Chesty Larue
01-20-2005, 06:37 AM
Well Lleyton's play is dropping too now.

He just served a double fault with his second serve missing so badly is was in the wrong service box :o

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 06:38 AM
Lleyton's stats not too bad - 8 UEs which is high given he only made 9 in the whole Mirnyi match :rolleyes: but serve % fine.

Scotso
01-20-2005, 06:38 AM
Blake cannot possibly keep up that level of play.

C'mon Llegs, don't let that forehand intimidate you :fiery:

:wavey: guys

kim4eva
01-20-2005, 06:38 AM
Ah. C'mooon Lleyyyyts get a grip

Scotso
01-20-2005, 06:43 AM
Llegs getting more aggressive.

Wow, thanks Keira!

Scotso
01-20-2005, 06:46 AM
K, Lleyt. When his forehand is on, stop hitting to it.

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 06:46 AM
Lleyton .... STOP DOUBLE FAULTING

Scotso
01-20-2005, 06:47 AM
2-1*

time for a break!

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 06:47 AM
Good, is he getting really cranky too? :devil:

Chesty Larue

My goodness Blake is lobbing perfectly.

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 06:48 AM
K, Lleyt. When his forehand is on, stop hitting to it.

:lol: good idea. Maybe you should coach ;)

15-30 vamosssss

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 06:50 AM
Apparently, every 3 years or so, Blake plays a good match ... usually when he meets Lleyton.

Scotso
01-20-2005, 06:51 AM
I couldn't coach, I'm too impatient and mean ;)

ad-CCA :rolleyes:

Scotso
01-20-2005, 06:52 AM
He played well against poor Florian, but Florian was really out of it, too.

ESPN's picture isn't very good. hard to see.

Ugh, Lleyton was there but missed it. Ad-CCA again.

Scotso
01-20-2005, 06:53 AM
Lleyton seems to want this game. Deuce.

Scotso
01-20-2005, 06:53 AM
Break point!

C'mon Lleyton. Put him in his place (firmly squashed beneath your boot).

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 06:54 AM
I think they all are ;)

I wish Lleyton would win points other than saving game points, but saving is good too ;)

Ooh he heard me, bp!

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 06:54 AM
Deuce :rolleyes:

Scotso
01-20-2005, 06:54 AM
Two big serves and then it was Ad-CCA again.

Game CCA. Boo.

Scotso
01-20-2005, 06:55 AM
Blake's forehand is just really on. I'm getting scared.

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 06:56 AM
I wonder if the light is bad. Ll is serving much below what he has been.

kim4eva
01-20-2005, 06:56 AM
Kewl, thanks loads for the link. It serves well for us who don't have coverage :)
GO Lleyts

Yeah .. me too.

Chesty Larue
01-20-2005, 06:58 AM
Lleyton's just getting flat out played :unsure:

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 06:59 AM
Oh NOOOOO.

Break back straight away LL.. this is best of 5 and you can do it.

Scotso
01-20-2005, 06:59 AM
This is quite annoying.

kim4eva
01-20-2005, 06:59 AM
I thought you guys have live coverage?

Scotso
01-20-2005, 07:00 AM
I do.

C'mon Lleyton!



At least Nathalie is winning now. 5-1 in the third.

Scotso
01-20-2005, 07:00 AM

c'mon!

Three break points. Come on, Lleyton.

Two now. Same as before :p

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 07:01 AM
We do but I'm waiting for a storm to pass so I can get home.

kim4eva
01-20-2005, 07:01 AM

YEEEESSS.

Scotso
01-20-2005, 07:02 AM
Llegs breaks back :D

I hate how these commentators pick favorites. Commentators aren't supposed to cheer, just supposed to comment.

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 07:02 AM
Oooh, looked like a "c'mon" :)

Danni
01-20-2005, 07:03 AM

does anyone else have coverage?if so do you know who the blonde lady sitting with all lleyton's people is?

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 07:03 AM
Some of them should just be called the "cheer squad" ;)

kim4eva
01-20-2005, 07:04 AM
Yay Lley :dance:
Keep it upppp. Out of curiosity, does Lley have the fanatics cheering for him like mad like they did last year?

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 07:04 AM
What's Blake talking to the umpire about?

Scotso
01-20-2005, 07:04 AM
40-15 Llegs!

Scotso
01-20-2005, 07:05 AM
4-3* Llegs.

break again!

kim4eva
01-20-2005, 07:06 AM
What's Blake talking to the umpire about?

Blake thought it's in (?) and the umpire said it clearly went out (and it is, seeing from the replay bit)

Scotso
01-20-2005, 07:06 AM
Blake told the umpire that he was letting Lleyton influence the calls, which is just bull. He's not blind, he knew it was out.

Chesty Larue
01-20-2005, 07:07 AM
The linesman called the ball in and the chair overruled a touch late so Blake was complaining to the ump that he let Lleyton influence his decision.

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 07:08 AM
Oh ha! That's quite funny in a very bleak way, if you think about it previous shitty line calls in matches between these two ;)

Scotso
01-20-2005, 07:08 AM
Blake is starting to miss now. Lleyton playing a bit better, but he's hitting the ball a bit too short.

Chesty Larue
01-20-2005, 07:08 AM
The US commentators always being rah rah for the American player is exactly why none of my favs are American :p

Scotso
01-20-2005, 07:09 AM

Noooooo Lley :(

01-20-2005, 07:10 AM

Yeah, same here.

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 07:11 AM
Good on Nathalie :) After that controversy I want her to do well.

Come on Lleyton, some aces would be nice :)

Danni
01-20-2005, 07:12 AM
yay! nice service game for lleyts :)

Lisbeth
01-20-2005, 07:12 AM
Look like Lleyton htiing to J's backhand and J running round them?

Scotso
01-20-2005, 07:12 AM
5-4* Llegs :D

break for the set!

I think if Llegs wins this set, Blake will start to fall off.

Chesty Larue
01-20-2005, 07:12 AM
man Blake gets a lot of balls back..so annoying :p

kim4eva
01-20-2005, 07:12 AM
Well done :dance:

Chesty Larue
01-20-2005, 07:13 AM
Look like Lleyton htiing to J's backhand and J running round them?

Yeah cause Lleyton is hitting a lot of balls that aren't deep enough..affords Blake enough time to run around on them.

Scotso
01-20-2005, 07:14 AM
Look like Lleyton htiing to J's backhand and J running round them?

Yep, and it's hurting him.


LOL, total tank on that shot by Lleyton. And after such a great return :(

Scotso
01-20-2005, 07:14 AM
That was a nice point. Too bad Lleyt lost it.

Stop farting around Lleyton, it's time for the death blow.

Danni
01-20-2005, 07:15 AM
