My favorite male tennis player was Andy Roddick (6). After watching a few of his performances these days, I don’t think I like him anymore (except for his aces xp).
Since his elimination in the 3rd Round (I think) by Phillip Kohlschreiber (29), I started to support Novak Djokovic. ;-)
My favorite female tennis player is Ana Ivanovic (2).
Australian Open 2008 has just ended with a surprise! I predicted Federer (1) and Henin-Hardene (1) to win the men’s single and the women’s single respectively.
But woah, how wrong was that?
Men’s Single Final
Novak Djokovic (3) 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (7-2) Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (18)
Yea! I’m right by supporting Djokovic! His performance in the tournament is simply superb! He had never drop a single set in this year’s tournament (except for the Final)! Even Federer failed to steal a set from him! Really wipes the smile of Roger’s face!
I said wipe the smile of his face!
Yea, that's more I like it! That will make Djokovic go hitting his chest rapidly, and showing his really intimidating face!
Anyways, he played quite bad in the first set. I thought Tsonga would actually win! I guess Novak's fitness and experience has got something to do with him winning the championship.
Well I’ve got more to talk about the new rising tennis star, Tsonga! This Frenchman had beaten some of the top 15 world players, most notable, beating the world number 2, Rafael Nadal! And he’s unseeded! He was number 338 two years ago. After beating Nadal, his rank jumped up crazily by 300!! Then, after losing the Final, he is now officially world number 18. o.O
Women’s Single Final
Maria Sharapova (5) 7-5, 6-3 Ana Ivanovic (2)
Ivanovic didn’t quite get her touch during the match. I was quite disappointed actually…But all and all, she did a great job in the tournament. She beat Venus Williams for the first time after 5 meetings (I think, lol) with her. Her rank has risen from 4 to 2 now.
Maria Sharapova was really consistent throughout the tournament. She thrashed Justin Henin-Hardene (1), beat Jelena Jankovic (3) and Lindsay Davenport. All in straight sets! Simply impressive!
I didn’t really watch the other tournaments in this grand slam. If you happened to watch any, you would notice how empty the court is. Even in the finals too.
By the way, did you guys notice that Jo-Wilfried Tsonga look like Boxing legend, Mohammad Ali??
So…what do you think? Same, eh? Haha
