    So, its that time again, time for Tennis to get started. The first major so who will be the winner? Will Rafael Nadal pull it out or Federer, or maybe :ha: Roddick or Lleyton Hewitt:ha: ? Well this will shape up to be a good one, the second round will come on after the OK St. vs. TX. game on ESPN 2. WIll you watch?:greedy:

    God I HATE Hewitt, the guy is the biggest tool in the athletic world.

    Not impressed he won last night.

    Me niether, i go for Nadal because he is the krytonite for Roger Federer, which always makes a great match.

    Australian Open is played on clay, and Nadal is pretty much unbeatable on clay surfaces. I say Nadal takes it.

    Aussie Open is hard court.

    French is clay.

    Its not, its a surface called 'Rebound', which is different, it is ''supposed'' to suit every players style, but some hate it because they keep twisting their ankles on it:suspect: ...

    Now time for my prediction, Nadal has inury problems, but I expect him to be in the final or there abouts, Federer will be there, Roddick's been on fire recently, and don't count out Murray...

    I don't really care as much for the aussie open, not because of the time its on in the U.K, well partly, but the fact that its the first major tourny of the year, people are rusty, and the weather conditions are stifiling...

    Its Nadal vs Murray, last 16, on Monday, I'm definitely watching that, they've been pretty much awesome so far, neither of them have lost a set...
