Who would’ve thought that, of all people, it will be Stan Wawrinka who emerges as the Australian Open 2014 champion. Did you? I certainly didn’t (expect him to win). I was actually rooting for Delpo but, I should’ve known better as he is one player who’s prone to being injured and all. The other person whom I thought would win it was Nole and he certainly disappoint. I mean, not to take anything away from Stan (he played great!) but still? It is Djokovic we’re talking about and yet, he was beaten…fair and square.

Of course, all those who bought the Friday night tickets to watch the legendary match-up between Federer and Nadal must have been disappointed after an hour or so of play. I would have been if I paid mega bucks on a Friday night anticipating a 5 hour match. Instead, I got solid exchange for about an hour. Everything went downhill after that. Truly very disappointing indeed.

Stan, on the other hand, was a welcome change. He deserved everything that he got. Nadal completely faltered and froze in the end. I felt it was a strategic move by the Feds. Keeping low profile, letting Stan take the glory. Keep the rest guessing and second guessing. Pretty clever I must say. We’ll see how the rest of the year pans out. Can’t wait.
