    I saw a bit of Nadal playing Mayer last night and Rafa looked in good form. And Venus is in the second round!

    Djokovic lost. In the second round. This is historical.
    I don't think he's lost this early in a major since he was a teenager. He's won the Aussie Open 6 times and was two-time defending champion.
    I got so much flavor put me on the buffet.

    Mirjana's win last night was... I was so emotional for her. Her story of abuse from her father, taking her mom and her sisters and fleeing in the middle of the night. Living with very little money, not playing tennis for more than a decade and now at the age of 35 to reach a Grand Slam Semifinal.. something she hasn't done since 1999 Wimbledon. It's just an amazing story.

    In tennis you were over the hill if you played after 29. The last decade it is now common for people closer to 40 to be making the biggest strides in their careers.
    6/8 of the players left in the draw are 30+
    Venus is 36
    Roger, Serena, and Mirjana are 35
    Stan and Rafa are 32 and 30 I believe.

    I'm glad we won't have another Murray vs Djokovic final. I find their matches so boring. I would like to see Nadal win so he can become the first male tennis player to win each major at least twice in the open era. On the woman's side I'd like to see Venus win her first Australian Open.

    Venus is playing Vandeweghe right now and I think she was broken in the first game of the first set.. :/ Hope she bounces back though!

    VENUS WON!!! She's into the final. I wonder if she'll face Serena.

    So excited to have an all Williams final again after so long! I'll be thrilled if either of them win. They've both made tennis history and are still playing for more.

    I'm staying up late to watch at least part of the Women's Final live. Anyone else?
