Aussie Open Update –1-29

Aussie Open Update:

  • With this win, Roger lays claim to being the best ever, and has nothing left to prove, except of course if unrelenting Nadal stays on his heels for the most majors. Today, what was on display was tenacity of the highest order from the Swiss master. In this match, he was only able to unleash bursts of offense and firepower every other set, but this sporadic showing was still something to marvel at, whether or not we’re seeing it for the last time. #Nadal #Federer

Aussie Open Update:

  • The Wild Board vs. the Ageless Roadrunner should be anything but a bore. Wish I could stay up to see how this shakes out. Nadal looks primed and ready for all comers. This will be no walk in the park for Roger the retirement dodger.
  • In the latest episode of Clash of the Titans in Women’s tennis, Serena moves up the hierarchy of tennis deities, while Venus’ prospects for another Major destination dim greatly.

Aussie Open Update:

  • Like a ravaging wild boar, Nadal sneers and snarls his way into the Aussie Open Men’s final with a marathon win over a surprisingly tough Grigor Dimitrov.
    The only question will be whether Rafa has enough left to continue his mastery over the slightly more lovable, and crowd favorite, Roger Federer.

Aussie Open Update:

  • If Roger wins this 18th major title, it will undoubtedly be viewed as the greatest accomplishment of an amazing career resume; indeed, this run to the Australian Open final puts to rest rumblings about why he still competes, even as a 17th seed. But Federer is all about winning, and his arch nemesis, Nadal, likely will be standing in his way in the final. It will be an event not to be missed — Spaniard vs. the Swiss.

Aussie Open Update –1-24

https://www.facebook.com/ChabDog/

Aussie Open Update:

  • Goffin buries himself with a pile of errors, and Grigor moves on to face a bigger test (either Raonic or Nadal).
    Meanwhile, the all-Swiss (Fed-Seb) semi should be a treat to watch.
  • Lucic-Baroni looks to be the next meal for Serena, while Vandeweghe/Venus should be a barn burner.

Aussie Open Update –1-23

https://www.facebook.com/ChabDog/

Aussie Open Update:

  • Rafa reaches down for a little extra in dispatching the perpetual lightweight, Gael Monfils, and advances to face bionic Raonic, who was all over the place in a topsy turvy toppling of Bautista Agut. Milos had better clean up his act if he hopes to take out the still dangerous Nadal; Mr. OCD smell an opportunity here, and you can bet he’ll have all his rituals working full time when he hits the court for their semi-final showdown.
    In the Goffin corner of the draw, the No. 11 seed broke down the thunderous strokes of Dominic Thiem with surprising efficiency and to this observer appears to be a strong favorite to put “Baby Fed” Dimitrov to bed early (and without any milk cookies).
  • Burly Stan had no trouble standing up to a touchy, nervous Tsonga in today’s quarterfinal action at the Aussie Open. What may be looming is another classic confrontation with Federer, and then possibly a bare knuckles brawl with Nadal.
  • And now what we have standing in the way of another dreadfully boring Williams sisters final is Coco Vandeweghe, and the way she is playing that is quite a formidable obstacle for Venus. Indeed, the Muguruzian effort today by the Spaniard wasn’t even close to being enough to stop Coco from puffing out her chest; she’s got all the shots and is a good bet to shuttle Venus out of the draw.

Aussie Open Update –1-21

https://www.facebook.com/ChabDog/

Aussie Open Update:

  • The road to the finals for Venus is now paved with Pavlyuchenkova….
  • Definitely the year of the underdog in the Aussie Open — Mischa Zverev does the unthinkable and overcomes defensive specialist and world No. 1 Andy Murray. Incredible display of serve and volleying. Zverev may well be the best volleyer in the game today, and was simply relentless. Ironically, the other big surprise in the men’s draw is the continued success of Daniel Evans of Great Britain, who is giving Jo Willy Tsonga all he can handle in the 4th round. And Roger Federer, now a 17 seed, is sitting pretty for another Grand Slam Title… amazing.

Aussie Open Update — 1-19

https://www.facebook.com/ChabDog/

Aussie Open Update:

  • Kerber controls Kristyna from start to finish.
  • Vandeweghe comes down hard on Bouchard, and looks here to stay.
  • Pavly pounds out a hard earned 3-setter over Svitolina, and now faces Kuzny in what promises to be a battle of real heavyweights in the 4th round.
  • Murray wears down the gangly, cat in the hat Sam Querrey, to the delight of Mother Judy
  • Wawra doesn’t get distracted by the beautiful Ms. Troicki and holds off the Aaron Paul lookalike
  • Jo Willy prevails in 4 when Jack Sock gets blinded by his own, glow in the dark, orange socks.
  • Seppi separates himself from Steve Darcis.

Aussie Open Update — 1-18

Aussie Open Update:

  • Bad ankle doesn’t rankle Murray, who methodically reduces Rublev to rubble on the way to the third round.
  • Despite some other disappointments, Australia still tastes the winning Tomic.
  • Whatever makes Nick tick, some day the clock will run out on his youth and all he’ll have left is memories of crankiness, tanks, shanks, and being a first class wanker on the court. Kudos to McEnroe for calling it the way he sees it.
  • Fed sputters a bit but knows how to get it done against Noah.

Aussie Open Update — 1-17

https://www.facebook.com/ChabDog/

  • Nice guy with the big serve swerves and crashes headlong into a serve and volley machine at the Aussie Open named Mr. Mischa. Zverev didn’t miss too many punch outs at the net against the disappointed American. John Isner needs to work on his conditioning and figure out how to keep his momentum going in these best of out five setters. His ground strokes remain unreliable, and his movement around the court remains a continuing liability.
  • There’s still a flicker of hope for Venus in singles, but doubles is another matter.
  • With lots of black just below the biceps, Serena brutally bludgeons Belinda Bencic.
  • Ivo eviscerates Horacio with a mind numbing 75 aces. I wish I was 6 ft 11….
  • Sebby has more than a small backhanded compliment for Stevie Johnson.

US Open Update: Day 14 (Men’s Finals)

  • Djokovic blinks and sinks under the weight of Wawrinka’s heavy barrage, including more than a handful of Stan-sized, one-handed backhands down the line. Perhaps the new nickname for the Swiss who doesn’t miss in the clutch should be Captain Courageous. As ChabDognosticated on last week’s ChabDog Sports Talk, Stan’s win, along with the title for Germany’s Kerber for the women, means a total cleanup at the Open for Central Europe.
