Australian Open 2013
The first grand slam of the year starts tonight over in Australia, midnight starts mean I will miss most of it which is a shame but it should be a great spectacle as always...
Think Djokovic has got this one in the bag with a straight forward draw all the way, on the outsider front I have had a sneaky £10 on Almagro at 500s as he has shown some decent form these last few months, looking to trade out after a few rounds...
In the womens, Serena should have no problems if she is fully fit, she is simply miles ahead of all the others and makes the world no 1 Azarenka look like a world no 50!
The darts BDO touney which has been shown on the BBC has been a big letdown compared to the PDC that is shown on Sky, no walk on dolly birds, quiet sound system, compere who can barely say "one hundred" and poor quality players. I even miss the drunken mob shouting "boring boring tables" lol.
Seen some good films this last week:
Skyfall - Excellent Bond film after the poor Quantum Of Solace
Seven Psychopaths - New film from the director of In Bruges, not as good as that but still great and quirky, violent and original much the same way as the former....
Django Unchained - Quality Tarantino form here with Christoph Waltz giving a brilliant performance as the German.
Ok Burglar alarm was going off at 4am so im off for a lie down!
