Is it bad that I am rooting for Mertens to win over Dasha. I feel bad saying it but Mertens is one of my favs. Either way, it should be a ripper

Not the greatest lineup, but lots of potential contests.

Cuevas-Harrison fills me with the most interest.

The Millman, Ebden and Dasha matches should all be battles that could go the distance. Both men deserve to be slight underdogs, and the matches could end up being diabolical, but with R3 on the line I expect something epic.

Thats fine. I just hate the ''uggh Aussies '' line that people throw out.

If you like a player because of how they play or present themselves then by all means support them. :) Its more the ' I wont support this player because they happen to be born in Australia and we get them shoved down our throats at an Australian match tournament on Australian tv''

We are free to support to whoever, Australian or not. I don't think it's wrong to say Dasha might lose, Mertens is actually a good player. Dasha will have to play some great tennis to beat her.

This is a tough match for Dasha, I think Mertens will win.

Looking forward to :

Tsonga v Shapovalov
Nick v Troicki - this will be entertaining, Troicki is a tricky and emotional player.
I THINK Dasha will win, she's the type of player Martens will struggle against, but she'd want to serve a lot better than her first round.

I haven't seen any of the 7 coverage of rod laver. Question, is Jim courier involved still? Why was John mcenroe interviewing fed? And it was a bit of fun the replay I saw this morning but so cringeworthy.

Nope, not bad at all, if you like Mertens by all means barrack for her :)

All I hate is people putting down the Aussie players for no good reason as though it's the cool thing to do.
