So... Are you enjoying or not enjoying AO13?

Usually we have a thread by this time, but no one's created one

Well, Đoković - Wawrinka, Ana - Jelena and Serena - Sloan did it for me. I wasn't sorry for being late to work almost every day

Waiting for Serena stans to come in and start whining

I actually am, not sure why. Most of my faves didnt do as well as I wanted--Jelena, Ana, Aga, but it's been entertaining and surprising. I actually wanted Serena to win this AO, but think I'll have to root on Vika now.

I cheer on scrubs.

Yeah, and the fact I have my fave in SF (what doesn´t happen that much) in both ATP and WTA only increases my interest.

Re: So... Are you enjoying or not enjoying AO13?

I always enjoy the slams. Usually I like seeing more upsets in the first week. Didn't happen this time, but I'm still enjoying the tournament.

My fave doesn't get a chance to continue her dominance of the top 2 in the world but this has been an enjoyable Australian Open for me. The Sloane story has given me enough life to last until Roland Garros.

Re: So... Are you enjoying or not enjoying AO13?

So far this tournament has been neither here nor there really. Serena and Maria were in great form, but has lead to Serena injuring her back and Maria seemingly crumbling at the 1st bit of resistance. With the likes of Li, Aga, Serena, Maria making the qtrs without losing sets you hope there would be fireworks in the 2nd week, so far not.

It all looks set for Vika to grind her way to another slam

Anna Chakvetadze Rules

Kim Clijsters - Supporting the comeback!

I have no other faves, I just hate

Re: So... Are you enjoying or not enjoying AO13?

Yes! I love the two slow court slams (Aussie and Roland Garros). I can't wait for Paris now to see the storyline in that one.

So far enjoying...i'm ready to see what Sloan will do against Azerenka, if she gets past her I will be even more excited....Serena and Venus are out, but I'm still happy...Serena I know will be back..Venus back in the doubles...lol...so far so good for me.

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!
