#1682 AO 2012 - Results
Surprise or not?!
Well @ the Women side it's always a surprise ..
The Men side is gonna continue from the last year!!
Novak Djokovic defended his title!! His third Australian Open title and his fifth grand slam title!!
I really hate to see him win!!
Andy Murray & Rafael Nadal were just so close!!
Rafa and he just broke a record for the longest grand slam final!!
A 5 setter in 5 hours 55 minutes!!
He maybe deserve it but I'm not happy about it!! LOL
Victoria Azarenka won her first grand slam and she is the new #1 of the WTA ranking!!
Maria Sharapove, the finalist, just collapsed in the final!!
Just a so easy match for Victoria
Is it me or ... When Maria reach the final she just collapsed?!
Like the final in Wimbledon ...
Although I really hope for someone else to win it!
Kim Clijsters couldn't defend her title and Na Li couldn't defend her points!!
She dropped to #9 of the WTA ranking.
I don't know if she can defend her French open title in May/June ..
Or it will be very dramatic for her ranking position ..
Just like Na Li, Zheng Jie also lost in the 4rd round!
I though she will go far because she defeated some seeded players!!
But the Auckland champion was no match for another unseeded player!
But still well done!! Nice to see her back in form!! She will be back in the top 30 soon
Peng Shuai got a disappointed start of the season!! She hasn't reach a 3rd round this year yet!!
Her WTA ranking didn't change!! Still the same place!!
The surprise and I was very happy to see it was that Kei Nishikori reached the quarter final!!
It was his first quarter final!!
His match against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was fabulous but the quarter against Andy was just nothing!!
