It's the Australian Open. It's David Nalbandian. It's Lleyton Hewitt. It's Rod Laver Arena. It's the first round. What the fuck did we think was going to happen?
Five hours, five sets, and in the end, 3-6, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 (7-1), 9-7 to Nalbandian. It was absolutely scintillating tennis. If not for this match, the Ana/Makarova match would have been the match of the day. But this one had so many jaw dropping, head scratching, face-palming moments that you just couldn't not watch.
The Australian Open has officially started. Hold on to your butts.
