With Nadal whining once again and taking shots at Federer, Djokovic taking digs at Federer as well, and the whole Tomic bandwagoning and talking shit vs. Verdasco, Bogo talking strike, etc.

Is the AO the drama slam? And if so, do you enjoy this kind of mentality as opposed to for instance the mentality at Wimbledon?

The Djokovic/Federer and Tomic/Verdasco thing is good because it's about tennis on the court and backing up your words on the court. The Nadal thing is bad because it's political off-court stuff that takes away from our enjoyment of the matches themselves.

I'm waiting for the Murray v Nadal final where Mr Lendl orders Andy to kick Rafa's neatly arranged water bottles at the first changeover. The two square up, Rafa goes for a cry then we witness a marathon 5 set epic with the highlander victorious.

Tennis Australia to instal a new rule during the AO! It is going to be called "Hockey rules": during a match players will be able to set any personal scores they have against each other by letting go off their racquets and having a go at each other.

Good times ahead!

Actually, Men's side of AO does not give that much drama. Miss the late 90s to early 00s when women's tennis drama was at the peak with Hingis, Capriati, Davenport, Kournikova, and the Williamses.
