Aussie Open Day 2
Here is the best tip for parents and child seeking a tennis career. This will be the best advice you ever get and will save you a lot of money in the scheme of things and I'm going to give it to you free , no charge.!
"If the parents want the tennis career for their child more than the child wants a tennis career then STOP! Just enjoy the game without the pressure.With The NZ nationals winding up this is a great tip for a few parents and players.
Well today matches plenty on show in very hot conditions! Being a spectator at the Aussie Open can be as tough as playing....well nearly!Thank goodness this year I am home being in NZ has made me weak! and cant stand any temperatures over 25 c : )
My Match interests Today are
James Duckworth AUS vs Roger Federer -* James and Gabrielle my niece played in the same winning Bruce Cup team for NSW when about the age of 11.Of course always great to watch the old guy Fed.
Rafa Nadal Vs Bernard Tomic- * The best thing Bernie can hope for is that Rafa today is having a few Lap Dances! Sadly Bernie he wont be!I am afraid Tomic for me is overrated, For a big guy does not serve as well as he could and for him to be top 10 this is a must the other factor Tomic's forehand does not have enough shape and is just too flat at times..watch today and notice how low he finishes at times on the drive through with elbow...often tries to hit down the line and hits net!His Backhand is steady but no weapon. VAMOS RAFA my tip to win the tournament.
Ryan Harrison Vs Gail Monfils-Played on Margaret Court arena at around 7pm this will be an entertaining match.Harrison has dissapointed me of late but he will give it all that's for sure.
Nick Kyrgois AUS Vs Benjamin Becker - great match up and if Nick is going to have a future in the top 20 although 19 I'm expecting him to take this match.He has been injured and lets hope a full recovery.
Thansai Kokkinakis AUS vs I Sijsling - This is a winnable match for the 17 year old Australian and looking fwd to watching some of his match today.
Lleyton Hewitt Vs Seppi (24 seed)- tough match for the Aussie Battler good form and he will need to be on song again to get through this but you will get your moneys worth with Hewitt. C'MON!
Have not listed any female matches today slam bang and thank you maam! just gets a little boring until the quarters!
However for all the New Zealanders reading then Marina plays the 22 seed today. If Erakovic plays like Auckland form then I do not think she will be getting to the second round!
