NH: The Australian Summer of Tennis thread

Well, it's here again. We've all been looking forward to it and we've got an early treat: Djokovic v Nadal in the final of the new ATP Cup.

I also understand that Adelaide is back on the tennis calendar this year.

Joker doing it easy in the first against Nadal. Nadal complaining to umpire at end first set, not sure why.

Bit of a shame Djokovic has pulled out of the Adelaide International now would've been a very big coup for that tournament.

I've only ever seen one tennis match in person when I went to Memorial Drive to see Andre Agassi play in Adelaide he lost to a kid called Lleyton Hewitt.

Our commentators could learn a bit from these tennis commentators, no yelling or screaming. The English bloke knows how to do it.

Sounds like they're using real tennis commentators this year - imports from overseas rather than the usual footy comments commentators

Courier and some English man, superb commentary.

Joker won 6-2 , 7-6 , tie at one all, doubles to decide it. Classic match, Nadal such a fighter, Djokovic so much class.

I'd like ten bucks for every time Nadal pulls his undies out his arse. ::)))

Sounds like we're going to see Nadal and joker back it up in the doubles to see who takes the title

Is Wayne Brady gonna have to Djokovic?

No yelling by the commentators at tennis. No kidding.
Cos it's boring and the crowd don't participate when someone's serving, cos it's just not done.
It's boring. The trio at the top are on the way down, it's only a matter of time.

Jim Courier, Peter Donegan, Dave Culbert and Todd Woodbridge are fantastic commentators

Great win by Nick K, very composed and calm.

Woodbridge, McEnroe and Courier great commentary, are the nbl ravers could take a few lessons.

Well, it's the matchup we've all been waiting for.

Nadal v Kyrgios on Rod Laver arena on Australia Day. You couldn't ask for anything more

Nadal will wipe him off the floor.

Some seriously good tennis involving Aussies this year. Loving it!

Seriously good game, kyrios can play. Wish he'd get Agassi or McEnroe to coach him, just needs a bit of polish.

Congrats to Nick for going 4 rounds without being a massive douche. A new PB.

"Congrats to Nick for going 4 rounds without being a massive douche. "

He was a minor douche at plenty of moments though. I guess that's progress

When he wants to play properly, he is up with the best of them it's just about the mental side.

That serve he has!

Kyrgios might wear the Kobe jersey, but its Rafa that has the Mamba like focus. Just consistently does his thing where as Nick might have some moments but can't put it together consistently enough. He certainly has the top end potential of a top 5-10 type player, but the fact he's 23rd says a lot about that lack of focus.

Another good win by Barty over one of the main contenders left in the draw. Has the 14th seed in the semi final to likely then play Simona Halep (4) in the big one. Would be absolutely huge if she can make the final.

Barty is one smart tennis player and coaching staff. Barty also has lots talent.

Kyrgios has talent but needs more smarts plus more smarts in his box.

Both great for Australian tennis. Great interview with Barty at end of 1/4 final, great person.
