aussy open #1

a year had came and gone, 4 grand slams had came and gone.

now is the AUSSY AUS AUSTRALIAN OPEN all over again. first grand slam of the year.

its been only 3 days into the tournament, and major things that i took notice are:

1. Rafael Nadal is hot, as always. but ya, he changed his outfit. all so fresh look. he is wearing sleeves! and shorts that shows his knees.

2. James Blake change sponsor, from Nike to Fila. (??!!) personal opinion, after Yonex, Fila has one of the worse designs.

3. Roger Federer cut off his goldy locks.

anyway, going in the early rounds, Nadal is playing awesome. he crashed his first round opponent, C. Rochus 0-2-2.

Federer is playing his game. pass round 2. well, of course.

i have not yet, watched the other two contenders, Murray and Djokovic play. but, i am sure without a doubt, Novak is as cocky as he can be, moreover, he is the champion last year, coming in to this tournament.

pretty dissapointed to see Hewitt lost to Gonzalez in a 5 setter.

anybody watched the women's match between the american wild card, Mchale and australian Moore, it was all the way, OUCH.

still too early to name the potential champion. but sure enough, VAMOS RAFA!
