Watching the Australian Open

Go Jo-Wilfried!!!

Hello kailiyans Down Under! Are anyone of you watching (or monitoring) the Australian Open? Kind of interesting results so far, no? Upsets began on Day One and kept going. I’m glad Roger Federer is still there and I hope he wins the title. I wouldn’t mind though if the young ones (particularly Djokovic and the Tsonga kid) end up winning.

On the women’s side, I’m kind of disappointed that Henin lost. But she has many Grand Slam titles already so maybe it’s time for the other players to have a Grand Slam of their own. I’m hoping that one of the Serbian girls win. Go Ana and Jelena, let’s make it an all Serbian finals.

Wil, what say you of the Australian Open? Much more interesting to watch because of the upsets eh?

By the way, is Jo-Wilfried Tsonga part Filipino? Just wondering because methinks only a Filipino mom would come up with a combined/hyphenated first name like Jo-Wilfried 🙂

  1. ok lang na natalo si henin. may asawa na kasi yan. mahirap naman pagpantasyahan habang hearing her grunt during those serves and backhands.

  2. hehehe nice point nashman..

    i always go for the underdogs.. it was exciting when tipsarevic got close of defeating federrer out in 3rd round.. =)

  3. According to wikipedia, Jo-Wilfried is half-white and half-black (Congolese). I can’t think of any pinoys who have become successful professional tennis players. Of course, there’s asians like Michael Chang and Thai player Srichaphan (who hasn’t been seen since he married a canadian model), but i guess the sport isn’t suited for us asians. 😉
