Well what a great spectacle that was tonight, Nick did our country very very proud and himself proud!

I haven’t seen Kyrgios play that well in years and he moves up 6 places to a rank of 20.

Nadal prevailed in 4 really tight sets 6-3 3-6 7-6 7-6 in 3hr 39mins.

Piss poor effort by Tennis Australia.
Margaret has won more grand slams than any other woman and that record has stood for FIFTY YEARS.
They at least presented her with a trophy but would not let her speak.
The media on the other hand were more interested in scanning the crowd for "Rainbow" flags one of which was a defiled Australian flag in rainbows colours and commenting that more than a few people stayed in their seats,
She was being honoured for her tennis achievements not her religious beliefs.
Even loud mouth McEnroe had a shot at her...compared to her tennis achievement Macca is a nobody known only for his loud mouth.

Crowd seemed to support her in the main. As they should. A real champion on the court.

Barty is struggling with the pressure and the heat.

After having two set points in the tiebreaker Barty couldn’t do it and Kenin takes it 7-6 (8-6)
