Australian Open 2009

Australian Open 2009

I enjoyed this season of Australian Open 2009 fully barring the two walk over episodes; I liked the way Tsonga & Verdasco played their matches; Serena over-powered her opponents and won the tournament. But i felt little sad for Safina - she has to overcome her slow start attitude; Fairy tale come back of Jelena Dokic was wonderful; I am looking forward to see more of Carlo Suarez Navarro - dont you feel her left hand back hand shots are similar to Fedex? ;

To an affectionate fan like me, Sad to see Fedex disappearing into Sunset.... He was too good through the fortnight until the 5th set against Nadal.... and I could not digest the way he lost the rhythm..... Was he nervous, emotional, desperate for victory... I could not figure out.

As life moves on, we will find another player to say - wow soon. But it would take a while for some one to match the grace of Fedex !

But the star of the tournament was undoubtedly Rafa Nadal - what a great two weeks he had ! He is so muscular to pull off 9h 45m of touch tennis in three days... Great job man.... You are wonderful.
