Just got on line. Saw the score.
Congratulations to: ALEX, NOLEDJOE AND MITICFAM.... Your boy is the 2008 Australian Open Champion.
I haven't seen the match. I'm watching the replay now. Also, congrats to all the Tsonga fans for him coming this far in the tournament.
Well, another grand slam tournament is over. It was kind of fun having only this 1 tournament going on. Now we have to get use to having a million small tournaments going on at the same time..
Anyway, it was "strange" not having Roger in a final, but I know a lot of folks were 'happy' to see new blood in a final so you got your wish.
(hopefully that's enough for the year)
So the battle for the top 3 positions began in earnest for 2008. It's going to be interesting to see how they eventually end up.
And since I can't end a post without something about Roger.... I hope fans and players are not underestimating him or thinking he's 'done' for the year. I have a feeling Roger is going to come back strong and hungry which should make this year very interesting indeed! (and by the way, I was a Roger fan when he hadn't won a thing back in 2000!)
But to end this post on a positive note: again, Congratulations to all the Djokovic fans on board and it really is good to have favorites of many players on this board (and I really do mean this)... so keep posting about your guy and enjoy the celebrating!)... you deserve it.
