The last 2 weeks have been full on watching the Australian Tennis Open!

Have managed to see most major games either live early in the evening or recorded the following day! Our viewing pleasure has been greatly enhanced with our newly purchased
40" Sony HD T.V! It certainly isn't the largest on the market but it is a big step up from our 29".

Back to the tennis! What remarkable finals! Although the Women's was a much shorter affair it was still a memorable match for the sheer dominance of the winner.

The Men's Final in complete contrast was a battle of attrition with both Nadal and Djokovich playing themselves into the record books with a 6 hour battle. Due to the length of the match my programmed recordings ran out and I had to wait for the highlights to see how the match eventually unfolded.

As the whole world now knows Djokovic was the victor after their 5 set titanic struggle!

I'm looking forward to the year ahead following the upcoming cricket with South Africa touring New Zealand. In April is the start of Rugby League where the N.Z Warriors will once again be playing in the NRL Australian competition.

Sport will never be the same again!

Sounds like you will have a busy TV watching time ahead of you! Along with that and running / cycling training you are going to be rather busy!

I love to watch tennis and really love Wimbledon - haven't missed it since I was a teenager (that's quite a long time lol).
I well remember the great matches with Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe - brilliant.

What a great upgrade you got - so much more worth it to watch excellent tennis (or rugby) on it. Enjoy

The Djokovic / Nadal matches have become epic affairs. I'll never forget the riveting Borg / McEnroe final (was it 1984/5?). That was a classic.

Nothing like an HD paul - brings it all to life in your living room!

The Cricket (NZ v RSA) is going to be something. I was amazed by the touncing that the black caps handed the Zimb-weans.

Let's see how it goes. . .
