I know i am going to sound harsh and i am very pleased for him but Bolt in the 3rd round of a slam is a blight on the game
Why?

He beat the 29th seed, if he isn't good enough he would of lost.

Tennis is the sort of game that despite how far you fall behind you are always a chance of coming back, his opponent should of won, he didn't.

Very excited to watch Serena for the first time this year. From what I've heard, her serve is looking almost entirely neutralised save for a few vintage moments, and despite her massive achievements in 2018, she never looked close to her best, so I'm not sure she'll win another Slam. But what a pleasure it will be to see my favourite non-Australian athlete back on RLA!
Athlete ? She is just a very powerful gifted slob who has played in an era where Womens tennis has been junk. Steffi Graf was an Athlete. Can't judge players from different eras they say but Graf's forehand was a sledgehammer that she bludgeoned to all parts of the court, down the line, off forehand, cross court take your pick. She would have Williams off the bit inside 6 games.

Have you seen Sabalenka? .She's a fierce competitor...

That's a load of crap. Serena has the greatest female serve of all time. That alone would have won her sets off graf.

Go watch Serena from the London olympics in 2012. Phenomenonal tennis. She was simply amazing.

Hopefully Tsonga still sticks around on the circuit for another year or two if his body holds up!

Hopefully Mug doesn't turn her toes up. She is needed to stop Serena. Halep, Pliskova, Svitolina. I really hope that isn't Serena's path to the final as she will smash them all.

Yeah she can match her.
Will the match be postponed if it can't be started before midnight in Melbourne?
