Djokovic can win, but he won't.

Also Ivanovic is hot as hell. I'd definitely let her sit on my face.

high temps and fast courts. bad for nadal and old man federer (for different reasons). pretty good for murray and djokes.

i guess djoker beats a laggy murray in the final, given the draw.

I live in Melbourne, but am away on holiday in another state and get to escape the heat thank god. Tomorrow and the next few days should be hitting up to around 40 degrees. I feel sorry for the athletes used to colder conditions.

Might I ask why one would do such a thing?

Pretty sure I saw Maria Sharapova last week in Queen St. Mall here in Brisbane for the warm up tournament.

Not fast courts I`m afraid. Very slow hard courts means grind fest, also known as Nadal`s favorite thing.

My favorite, Federer, has very very slim chances here. His form is very bad. I think it`s up to Nole to prevent Nadal from taking this. Murray is recovering still and can not be expected much of, unfortunately.

Maybe a slightly lower ranked player can make a run?
Del Potro? I fear the courts are too slow him.

I`ll go with Jerzy Janowicz, even if the same applies to him imho.

Maybe Tsonga could make som noise. Would be fun.

Federer would have to go through Tsonga, Murray, Nadal, and the Djoker back to back to bsck to back. It's nearly impossible. Although even reaching the final or semis would mean he will have given us some memorable performances to beat two of the big four along thew way. I, for one, want to see Federer againsy Nadal in a relatively faster hard court.

well, i seem to remember a report on SI's site a week or two ago that said the courts were faster this year than ever before. and if that's not due to heat, then heat will only make that more intense.

and let's be clear-- djoker, muzza and rafa are ALL kings of the grind. but djokes has the slightly easier draw, as well as having the most success here. gotta give the edge to him, i think.

Ana Ivanovic - arguably the hottest girl on tour for quite some time... and former #1 player in the World.

Janowicz barely made it out of the first round against some local Aussie scrub ranked 300+.


Early upsets so far are Kvitova (6) losing and Haas (12) pulling out with a shoulder injury.

Wawrinka looking like an elite player. Some of the best ground strokes I've ever seen.
