Australian Open 2017

Postby Verity » Thu Jan 26, 2017 6:00 am

The year of the old timers.

Venus Williams is through to her first Final in alot of years.


Lucic-Boroni has made her first SF since 1999 Wimbledon and she is playing Serena Williams for the spot in the Final.

Stunning results in the mens side with the old timers dominating as well, we could see a Nadal v Federer Final.

Federer v Wawrinka SF1

Nadal v Dimitrov SF2

Federer puts the stunning results down to a faster surface used this year and says anyone that played before 2005 have a huge advantage as they grew up on the lightning surface, he thinks all the youngsters are use to slow balls and slow courts.

Federers run is even more amazing considering he hadn't played for 6 months leading into the Australian open.

Venus and Federer I'm cheering for.

Djockovic lost 2nd Round and Murray 3rd Round.

Venus Williams v Serena Williams is the womens Final.

Hope Venus can beat her.

Indeed.

This could have been a decade ago (if Nadal wins his semi).

I like federer. He has class
