    I’m excited for the later rounds on the womens side in Sydney. Possible Kerber-Wozniacki and Li Na-Stosur quarters will be glorious messes! But I’m most excited for a Kerber-Kvitova semi. If they both make it, I’m just hoping Kvitova brings the goods because Kerber is always ready.

    Does Jerzy have a clothing sponsor yet?

      I don’t think so, Henk. In Auckland he has the same Nike kit he used in Paris, plus the new Lotto kit that Ferrer has been wearing. However, he’s putting patches over both logos, so it’s safe to say that no deal has been reached yet. However, it does seem like Babolat picked him up in earnest, and Oakley might have some sort of deal with him.

    Juan Jose,
    How about Brian Baker defeating a certain Polish player in 3 sets?

      An unfortunate situation, Master Ace. Apparently it was extremely windy. But you fail to mention how Janowicz did manage to save 15 of 17 break points (only got broken in the 3rd set), as well as 7 match points. Yes, he had a horrible day returning Baker’s serve, and was in double digits in terms of double-faults, but there were some encouraging signs from that match. Or at least that’s what I keep telling myself.

    Pavlyuchenkova w/d due to hip injury (more like rest to me after making an unexpected run to the final at Brisbane). Believe Wozniacki may do well this week as she does the week before a Slam. Agree that Radwanska needs to rest this week because I can see a “hot” player defeating her before the quarterfinals in Melbourne.
