    Serena vs. Maria Kirilenko will be at 12:30AM PST, and then FED vs. Raonic will be after that.

    Just like today's Wawrinka vs. Djokovic was AFTER the Radwanska vs. Ivanovic match.

    I think FED vs. Raonic will be a blowout either way. Most likely FED, but Raonic has the type of power game, where if FED can't return his serves, it will be over quickly. Sort of like how Berdych has beaten him a few times at majors.

    Since it's hard to tell which FED will show up these days, I'm nervous.

    I might try the "nap trick" to watch the FED one tonight. We'll see. It might not start until 1:30 AM or 2 AM PST.

    Are you saying there's a chance FED gets blown out by Raonic?

    Yes.

    Raonic was 1st or 2nd in aces last year, and is probably the same this year.

    FED's been having more trouble picking up serves sometimes the past 1-2 years.

    It's not as easy to return guys like Roddick or Karlovic for him anymore, IMO.

    So this Rolex thing on Australianopen.com is saying the first match will begin at 2:30 AM, my time?

    Meaning the FED match will begin sometime around 4-5 AM here. Damn

    You are no longer a member of THE FED nation. Exchange your 'RF' hat for a pair of Tisparevic sunglasses.

    Yes, that's what I was trying to say in #101.

    You know, I have no idea what Seppi and Chardy are like, I barely remember watching them.

    Since it's 1-1 set apiece, I might watch this.

    The stream isn't working too well. And I'm a little tired of TV. I'll give ESPN2 a few more mins, if they switch to something more competitive, I'll watch a little, or else I'll take a break.

    Dang. Not just for the AO, but it's useful for the other majors too, when you want to catch a good match.

    Or maybe watch the final game a great 5-setter.

    Oh, after the Azarenka match. I don't want to wait that long (even though she's rolling).

    They're showing Chardy and Seppi, so I'll watch a few minutes, then take a break.

    Are you going to take that pre-game nap tonight?

    You don't have work tomorrow, right?

    Chardy has hit some great returns for winners or just plain great returns. I like that.

    Ok, That's probably it for me until the FED vs. Raonic match.

    No I don't have to work.

    I fell asleep for about 20 minutes right after the Ravens game. So I missed the celebration, and whatever else went on.

    Consequently, I feel kind of refreshed, lol.

    That's a good thing lol.

    I hate how ESPN's tennis scoreboard is always a day behind. Like right now, it's showing the scores from yesterday. I was trying to look up the Azkarenza score.
