Things I Learnt During The Australian Open 2010

* That Australia thrashing Pakistan again and again, draws higher ratings than Channel 7's butchered coverage of the tennis. How Channel 7 can insult viewers with this half-assed coverage of a Grand Slam is beyond me. Fuck you Channel 7.

* That $3 on Federer to win a Grand Slam is maybe more just sound finance than skinny odds...

* That Hewitt is definitely yesterday's hero...Tomic is the future for Australia. The young fella had eventual semi-finalist Marin Cilic down two sets to one before hitting the wall physically...my opinion of Tomic will be re-enforced by my next point...

* Cilic has the game to win Wimbledon...

* Nadal might be done...he looks like he's used up all his body can give. The French Open in a couple of months will tell us more, but to me, he looks nothing more than a top 10 player these days.

*That Federer is just a machine...I've had the conversation with many people over the last week...can you remember the guy ever being injured? I can't. No-one I know can. To win 16 Slams and never succumb to injury is just freakish.

* That I agreed with rubbish Brisbane Courier Mail journalist Mike Colman on something...namely, the bullshit Channel 7 coverage of the Grand Slam of the Asia Pacific...

* That a lot of people out there are disgruntled with Channel 7's coverage. Fuck you Channel 7. And fuck you Cougar Town. And fuck you My Kitchen Rules. And fuck you Border Security. But most of all, fuck you Deal Or No Fucktard Deal, fuck you Destination NZ, fuck you Great Southeast, fuck you Today Tonight, fuck you Home And Away, and above all, fuck you Channel 7...

A Grand Slam deserves uninterrupted live coverage. You cannot provide this. So give it up bitches. We can watch every match of every other Grand Slam live and uninterrupted, but we can't watch the Grand Slam of our home country without missing huge moments. FUCK YOU CHANNEL 7!

Yep.
Watching Griggs et al prodding the great Jim Courier to spruik Cougar Town was just offensive.

Fuck Channel 7.

Also, Fuck Channel 9 for repeatedly cutting the 49th and 50th overs of one dayers to go to the news.
