    Now the Brits are out, it seems that our media has forgotten about it!
    I dare say there will be plenty of coverage of the final though. There normally is cos it fills up the early morning slot on BBC1!!

    Roger Federer and Andre Aggasi are playing each other today and it should be a great match. There will be about 16,000 people in the arena too so the athmosphere should be fantastic!

    There's no point in watching any of it, the final will probably be Roddick vs. Federer and federer will win huge.

    Did anyone watch the Federer - Agassi match? If so was it as one-sided as the score suggests?

    Have been keeping track of most of the matches via the live scoring but have only seen the few highlights the bbc showed on Sunday. (so glad I didn't stay up to watch Tim get thrashed the other night.)

    The final is live on the bbc and at a sensible time. Thanks to the organisers for making it a night match - great move.

    Can't really see anyone beating Federer at the moment, but hope that someone can push him a bit.

    Won't it be weird if the top 4 seeds are in the semis? hope roddick wins, He'll definitely beat Hewitt if they play:D (sorry Lil Miss, looks like everyone you want to win isnt going to)

    well I'd like to barrick for the ppl who aren't the favourite, even though I know that federer or roddick will win!!
    i'm still glad we didn't make a bet otherwise i'd b doing something stupid right about now :rolleyes:

    Hewitt's just scraped through, so the top 4 seeds actually make it to the semis for once. Looks like it was a strange match - Hewitt won the 1st 2 sets easily then Nalbanian took the next 2 just as easily, 5th set was the only really close one - Hewitt getting it 10-8.

    Really looking forward to the final now, will be between 2 great players whoever makes it.

    It was a funny game. There where a heap of fireworks go off outside the stadium at the start of the 3rd set for the Australia Day celebrations and Hewitt wasn't 100% after that for some reason. Was a great 5th set though!
