An amzing year for Chris O'Connell. He would have to be a lock for a AO wildcard.

'No player won more professional matches in 2019 than Chris O' Connelll, whose incredible tally of 82 match victories helped him vault more than 1,000 places in the rankings in the past 12 months. '

Yeah, if he had of won that challenger the other week, he actually would of made direct entry into AO (think he lost in the semis), which is incredible for a guy who has had that much trouble with injuries.

Is this the best group of Rising Aussies we've had in the men's top 100 for some time?

Di Minaur (18), Kyrigios (30), Millman (48), Thompson (63), Popyrin (97), Duckworth (100).

Few guys capable of causing some damage at a major slam, some even pushing deep into the second week. Going to be a fun time watching this group. Either injury curtail them like every era or they can take that step and win some stuff.

The woman's side, we really only have Barty to hang our hat on. Tomljanovic (#51) the second best Aussie and the by gone star Stosur our next best ranked lady at 99.

Not big news but as I was leaving the Strikers game today, Popyrin was coming the other way across the bridge.

Most of the players would be staying at the InterContinental Hotel so that Torrens bridge would be a great place for autographs as it is only a five minute walk from the Hotel to Memorial Drive.

I watched Harris, Pohlmans and Patrick-Smith today in qualifying for Adelaide. All three were disappointing. They obviously deserve their AO wildcards but I can't see any of them getting through the first round.

Rodionova played really well in her game.
