Hopman Cup Final

The US won. The mens' match between Djokovic and Fish, was exciting and close. But the fact that Jancovic could not play singles due to injury and didn't look so great in the doubles made for a less exciting final than it could have been. And yet, it is so fun to see a mixed doubles match figure so prominently in a tournament. It's this whole other tension, the gender thing. Women love to ace the men, men can't stand getting aced by the women. You have to wonder if it's difficult for the men to go all out and play as hard as they can- and really, they do, but it's a tiny question in the head. To watch Serena and Djokovic go at each other was exciting.

I'm getting super excited about the Australian Open. I'm going to watch so much tennis my mind will turn to mush.
Yours Truly,
