Out of Sydney so will at least have couple more days to get used to Melbourne. I think it's hotter there than in Sydney.

Not the best way to go into a title defense, but, I still believe he can do well! Ajde Nole!

I planned to call Nole and ask him to tank the final. It's better now that he doesn't even make the final.

8km/h winds in Melbourne, on Tuesday. It was 23 in Sydney today. Surely that'll help?

Pick yourself up, Nole. Practice.

Good luck in Melbourne Nole Like I said in the other threads - no need to panic about the Sydney loss. It's not the end of the world - he has more time to prepare for the AO now He had three matches in Sydney, some more practice with the racquet, and got more used to the heat without making himself exhausted. The winner of Sydney has NEVER done well in Melbourne anyway - so good luck to Nole in the AO

Ironic title

After yesterday's showing I have however awarded him honorary munchkin status.

Though I would have preferred Nole to win his semifinal match and get to Melbourne with the number two ranking and more confidence, I agree that losing is better in the long two weeks in AO. It seems that he is getting used to the racket with each day

52 hours until the AO begins!

Despite anxiety over Nole's current mental state, I am very excited to see slam tennis. Plus, actual tv coverage in the US! Pretty good coverage, too, since it's just ESPN2 and TC. No major network to screw the weekends up!
