I was at both matches and Dominik played a lot better against Spadea than against Vanek. Against Vanek he was terrible and could hardly get a ball in, Vanek was leading by a set and a break but got tight and Dominik got through on his fight and heart.
Against Spadea he started badly but the improved his game and was playing well in the last 3 sets. Dominik is slowly finding his form and can do some damage if he keeps improving like this.

Way to go Dominik!

I agree Danika I think Mario is way hot.Just kidding I donít think any of the tennis players are hot.Except Maria Sharapova ÖÖÖÖ.Okay maybe thereís a couple of girls on the tour that are hot but mostly I just like Maria.

Okay now I have to say hi to Jole.Thanks for adding me In the bunch.I know im new and im sure all of you have known each other on here for awhile.So I appreciate that you all have been so nice!

He's soooo cute. His face, legs, butt, and smile. :)

He is also really nice. I've seen him in person twice last year and he seems cool.

The match was so funny, Spadea was being an ass and got a warning for audible obscenity. Then he swore at some fans in the crowd again and he got a point penalty! He kept looking at us (Dominik's fan group and Slovaks) and glaring every time he hit a winner. He was so frustrated that Dominik was better.

After the match Dominik invited us to meet him at the Hyatt the next day, however it didnt happen as he forgot that he had doubles on that day and didnt have time to be ready.

I saw lots and lots of matches, maybe I'll post a report later. I might be going tonight to see Dominik, but I'm unsure whether that will be played since its raining and I dont want to pay to go in and not get to see anything.

Thatís really awesome Experimentee.Im so glad dom beat Spadea.I really donít like him I think heĎs a complete and total ass!I have to ask why in gods name would Spadea yell at the fans in the crowd?What kind of unprofessional jerk would do that!

Thatís such a shame that you guys didnít get to meet Dominik at the Hyatt the next day!But thatís really sweet that he would ask you guys!

And I would totally love it if you gave us a report of the days you spent at the Australian Open!

I did end up going to see Dominik against Ancic. Dominik served badly, didnt get many first serves in, and his 2nd serve was pounded by Ancic. However his groundstrokes were ok. Apart from his serve, Dominik didnt play that badly, but Ancic was too good. Ancic was on fire and hardly missed anything.

Dominik did end up inviting the fans to a players party, he stayed at the party until about 11pm, but I couldnt go.
