    Agassi admitted to using drugs in his upcoming book.
    what are your opinions regarding this?

    Personally, I am dissapointed that he chose to admit his mistakes only now, instead of then. But I would still think of him as one of the greatest tennis players, drugs or no drugs.

    I'm dissapointed because he get caught and LIED back then. If he never get caught and now wanted to be honest about it, I can accept that a bit better than lying about it.

    But then again, using meth is not like helping him enhanced his tennis perfomance, if anything meth could destroy you. I'm glad that he didn't get addicted to it so all the tennis fans had the chance to enjoy his tennis.

    Yesterday we had the Hit for Haiti event in Melbourne Park. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Kim Clijsters, Serena Williams, Andy Rock, Novak Djokovic, Sam Stosur and Lleyton Hewit were present to play for the cause. Wish I was there - tickets were only $10! Must've been a good, fun event.

    In Women's tennis, Kim Clijsters has won her first Brisbane International title. Dementieva defended her title in the Sydney International.

    Maria Kirilenko has caused a major upset at the Australian Open today by defeating her compatriot Maria Sharapova, whose play today is less than her best. The match lasted 3 hours and 20 odd minutes. Kirilenko won 7-6 3-6 6-4. In the end, Sharapova could not hold her serve in the influential last game, after breaking her opponent's serve at 3-5. Leading 5-4, Kirilenko took 2 match points to advance to the 2nd round.

    Omg, Jelena Dokic is on tonight after Luczak and Nadal. Pleaseeeee Jelena, don't mess this up! She was the story of the Open last year, making it all the way through to the Quarter Finals, after that epic match against Alisa Kleybanova, which she won 7-5 5-7 8-6 in the 4th round. She was so close to the Semis, falling to Dinara Safina 4-6 6-4 4-6.

    Clijster's return throws the Women's draw into question, and promises to shake things up, in the Rankings Department.

    Anybody watching the Aussie Open?

    Sharapova lost, Soderling out, Oudin out.....

    Henin vs Dementieva : too bad they have to meet this early. I hope EPN will have this game so I can see Henin play. I want to see her new game/serve.

    Federer struggled but luckily he made it through *phew* Hopefully he'll do better next round.

    Sourplum : are you planning to go to watch the game? If yes, please take lots of pics for us here

    Currently, as you can see on the ATP ranking, Federer > Nadal.

    Henin - Dementieva was a good game. Both played great. Feel sorry for Dementieva as she played good but not good enough to beat Henin.

    Han Solo : please take lots of pics....if you see Federer anywhere, please take good pics of him too for me

    ATP ranking means little in the big stage. Nadal has repeatedly made Fed cry, this will happen again .

    do you guys think henin can make it back to the top? i think there is a good chance since women's tennis has been a little spotty lately.

    and that blake/del potro match took forever. blake went beyond my expectations. both played well, though with a few stupid mistakes.

    If Clijsters can make it back to the top (as in winning slams), I don't see why Henin can't. I don't know if she can win the Aussie open due to the physical demands but she's certainly among the favourites. I can't wait to see her dismantle some of the dimensional players out there who's only game plan is to hit the ball back harder.

    Wasn't THAT a shocker! Match ended in 52 minutes, just shocking. Kim had a very bad day. So sad to see her out this early. Even she couldn't explain what went wrong.

    Yea, it was pretty bad. Never in my wildest dreams would i expect that score since she was a favorite coming in and recently won the Us Open.
