Yes, but I don't think all of their matches should overlap as much as the ones I've mentioned, if memory serves me.

Besides, I'm not particularly interested in those matches (with the exception of Donna's), as I am in the other three.

And since we're bitching about the AO OOP...

At times we don't get a chance to even see our players in action, and at other times we get too see so many of them at once that it's ridiculous.

Not a very friendly OOP for viewers in the US

Considering how shitty this year has started, with all the early losses everywhere, who would think that in the first two weeks we'll have one final and one (at least) QF, on the WTA level nonetheless.

Hope this is a sign of more good things to come.

Coric too lost his first match. Dodig lost his second Q match and also his first doubles match.

Mektic is the relative success of the week so far. He won two Q matches against seeded players, but then lost easily in R1.

Well, Coric can at least be forgiven because he played his last competitive match almost 4 months ago. Fett played a really strong tournament, against a player way higher than she is, so that's really OK too. But Donna, and to a point Dodig, certainly flopped considering their respective abilities.

I can't be mad at Darija cause she's irreplacable (for now) in Fed cup and she always gives it her all there, so I don't see this as a problem. Besides, she's still highly ranked.

With Karlovic it's always a coin toss, as it all depends on how he is serving on a given day. As previously mentioned, Mirjana usually sucks in January, Konjuh might get nervous for some reason, and the fact that Cilic is playing someone from outside the top 100 is no guarantee that he will win.

So all in all, I continue to be optimistic

I can already tell that this season is going to be a complete and utter mess. Wish I could just stop watching...

It is all going as expected, really only Ana and Čilić should win first matches and I am not so sure about Ana.
Chung is difficult opponent for Borna.
Mirjana rarely wins a match in Australia.

From 16 titles, to 15 titles, to 13 titles each in 2013/2014/2015 to just 5 titles in 2016

Katastrofa
I agree it was a really disapointing year. Let's hope that 2017 will be better.
