I'm with you! I was kind of burnt out on tennis toward the end of the year, maybe because of the Olympics and the schedule seeming so crammed . Now, though, with the new season right around the corner I'm tired of waiting for it to start . It's like "Alright already. Let's Go!"

Probably Nole won't play til around Wednesday, right?

I guess I need to take a look at his 2009 schedule to see where he's going when.

Pretty good list with some dangerous unseeded players thrown in there for good measure but he has started the season strongly the past couple of years so I expect that to continue

If I had made this thread the title would be, "I Wish I Were a Banana Bender."

That's not offensive is it, Aussies?

According to the Brisbane website, Nole will play Gulbis in the first round. Not the best way to ease into the new season. Still waiting to see the complete draw.

If he survives Gulbis, playing Mathieu next probably

Verdasko, Ancic, Nishikori, Stepanek, Berdych, Fish in his half
