    Looks like Channel 9 have won the rights to broadcast tennis. Tennis is usually on at the same time as Cricket, so will be interesting if they also retain the cricket rights.

    I think Channel 10 are in the box seat for the cricket. They have had the Big Bash and it would seem a natural fit for them. We might even get a better commentary team.

    Massive loss for ch 7 - how are they going to promote MKR now?

    Praying those pricks lose the footy rights next.

    A tennis player we can all like.

    I liked his after match interview where he mentioned that the only thing he can control is the effort he makes. That's something you can apply to sport, work and life.

    Winning the tournament obviously didn't mean enough to Roger...
    AFLW Premiers 2018

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    Finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    And pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    Police officer's station. So we got in the red vw microbus with the
    Shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    Police officer's station.
    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    The police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    Being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    We didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    And told us never to be seen driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    Which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    There was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    Both immediately arrested. Handcuffed.
    And I said "Obie, I don't think I can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on. "
    "He said, "Shut up, kid. Get in the back of the patrol car. "

    Serena Williams imploding on court at the moment after calling the referee a thief and earning herself a penalty
    Osaka, playing beautifully at the moment

    Hard to watch the after match celebration, the crowd was in poor form with their childish booing and it certainly had an impact on Osaka. She was obviously struggling in what was the biggest win of her short career.
    Still she played a great game and will now get some recognition for being a seriously talented player

    Serena ought to be ashamed of herself. The term 'Tennis brat' exists for a reason. She must have known how the crowd would react and went ahead with her carry on anyway.
