Australian Open 2017/2018

Odds of a Federer Nadal final? Could be a blast from the past. Both looked great in their last match. Nadal is really banging those ground strokes. Must have got back on the magic juice during his break.

Fed's lost a bit of focus against Wawrinka. Shouls still win, though.

I know. I'm talking to myself. Indulge me - I'm elderly.

Nadal's playing at 4.30pm today. Unfortunately, my wife has booked a meal with her family in a Thai restaurant for 5pm which has been made clear to me is non-negotiable. We're going on holiday to Thailand on Sunday. :ponder: :idunno: :cry: Sometimes I give up.

This is a cracking match. I think Dimitrov's going to spoil the party.

And immediately following another classic BV prediction, Nadal breaks.

The final's on!

Don't worry, no more posts from me as I'll be on a plane on Sunday.

Go Fed!

Well, like an idiot I managed to walk out of the house when Federer went down 1-3 in the fifth set and right as things got interesting. Evidently Fed went on to win the next five games (!) but I figured Nadal had him firmly by the throat. Oh ye of little faith...

Continuing my Indian Summer love affair with Federer. Just gorgeous. Gorgeous. No other word.
