Anybody watch Tennis? I usually get into the majors. I especially dig the Australian Open since I'm usually up all night anyway.

Love tennis, and as a night owl I love the Aussie Open. Unfortunately, we cut the cable cord about 6 months ago so I can't watch it this year.
If I ever sat and made a sports bucket list, the Australian Open would be on it.

Didn't see the match but Djokovic just beat Nadal in the 3rd straight final at a Major! This one lasting almost 6 hours, they are saying it may have been even better than the Nadal/Federrer match at Wimbledon a couple of years ago. Pretty impressive win for DJokovic considering he was coming off a 5 hour semifinal match against Murray!

I saw the ending of the Nadal/Djokovic match.
Man, what a match.
Can you imagine playing for 6 hours? Wow.

Watched it all but IMO didn't top Federer- Nadal from Wimbledon. Last 2 sets were amazing stuff but just not as consistently good throughout the whole match like Fed- Nadal.
I'll say this, I'm not particularly a Djoker fan but that man is amazing. Just so mentally tough and physically is a beast as well. Consider he played Murray in a 5 hour semis match and he was able to come back 2 days later and take out Nadal, the guy who thrives in long grueling physical matches, in a 6 hour match. Amazing stuff. Note that Nadal had also had an extra day off as well. If Nadal couldn't get him in this final it's hard to see him getting him at all, even on clay at the French. Djoker owns Nadal as much as Nadal owns Federer.

I still say Roddick/Federer was a better match than Nadal/Fed. I'm not sure why everyone forgets that one.

Nadal came into his prime as Fed was out of his...I would expect the younger, more in prime player to beat the older, just out of his prime player.
Djokovic has become a beast but it has also come at a time where Federer is near the end of his rope and Nadal is constantly battling knee injuries.
A few years ago, he couldn't do much against Nadal and Fed.(Nadal is still 16-14 vs him in their careers and that's with Novak "owning him" the last year or so.)
