Resolved Question: Bernard Tomic vs. Lleyton
Has Tennis Australia done its job to prepare Bernard Tomic for 2012 Australian Open... Tomic is a promising young prospect, made a QF at Wimbledon 2011..
No secret both Tomic & Hewitt camps dont like eachother however Hewitt is clearly past his best however when he goes down he goes down fighting...
My question is have Tennis Australia given Bernard Tomic the right preparation for Australian Open?
Week 1 - Hewitt competed in Hopman Cup representing Australia in his pool drawing & loosing to Fernando Verdasco & Gasquet while Tomic competed in Brisbane making SF loising to Murray... Should Tomic has competed in Hopman Cup insted? he would of faced Verdasco his Aus Open 1st round opponent.... or better playing against World #4 Murray in Brisbane?
Week 2 - Bernard Tomic competed in Kooyong which gaurantees all participants 3-tough matches before Aus Open while Hewitt competed in Sydney loosing to 5th seed Viktor Troicki... Should Tennis Australia take credit in this regards?... Three 3-set watches with wins against Berdych, Monfils & Mardy Fish
Q1: Should Hewitt have competed in Kooyong, tournament he won last year & Brisbane insted of Hopman Cup as more experienced than Tomic could have taken out Murray
Q2: Should Tennis Australia have put Tomic in Hopman Cup & Sydney & replaced Hewitt in Brisbane & Kooyong?... are both players prepared for Aus Open?

Resolved Question: What do ppl think of
what do pepole think of Lleyton Hewitts commentary of the Aust Opens mens match last night (sat 21st Jan?)
I think he showed great insight into the players perspective, which was good, but.. he talked too much, he talked for too long with each comments. and it did get a bit annoying Jim Courier and Bruce McAveny would have found it hard to get a word in...
thoughts? lets hope he shuts up a bit tonight and lets us watch the match..!

Resolved Question: Who do you think is
They've been asking this question during the hewitt vs Nalbandian match.
I think it's Roger. They've played each other 25 times. And have played at least one match against each other every year since 1999. They also have junior history. And they have had a lot of big matches. What do you think?
Who do you think is Lleyton's biggest rival?
Other possible contenders include- Nalbandian, Safin, Nadal

Resolved Question: Can anyone else remember
I still cannot believe the guy was a the top of the game (for two years).
Did Hewitt falter really badly, or was he simply overtaken by a lot of players all at once?
Can anyone explain what the deal is exactly with Hewitt - do you rate him? LOL - you need to be commentator with those put-downs ;P
