    Federer wins. I've never been so excited for a 250 win for Fed before. What a match. Take a bow Federer and Raonic. Oh and people who say Raonic is just serve, you have no freaking clue what you are on about. This guy can play from the baseline and is only gonna get better. But what a match and Fed has very good chances at the Australian Open.

    Great match. Servebot played well. Raonic wasn't bad either.

    That was a great final. Federer was fortunate at times though - Raonic had multiple break points and if he'd taken any of them he could well have taken the match because he was backing up his serve incredibly well today. He choked in the final game with that DF at a crucial point, but even so I was hugely impressed with him today. He's improved vastly it seems from the baseline and his return is so much better. He hit so many returns for winners that Federer yelled out in frustration after one of them. Be interesting to see if Raonic can keep building on this and take some bg scalps in Australia.

    Just don't think I'll ever buy into Raonic, no doubt he's improved and all that but he just doesn't excite me. Fed now chasing Lendl for career wins too.

    What a win for Federer, there's the 1000 mark. Very entertaining final, Milos was solid off the ground, literally went for every shot in the 3rd set.
    Fed should have closed it out in 2, both players had 4 or 5 break point chances each in the decider, and we were treated to a tense finish.

    Also, congrats to Stan Wawrinka for winning the Chennai Open in comfortable style, extending his winning streak in January to 15-0

    Good signs all round for the AO!

    Very tough first round match for Nadal, Youzhny is very capable so not great for him there. It'd be crazy if we got a Stan v Novak quarter again this year, can't wait to see the drama unfold

    Del Potro gets a R4 against Raonic and QF against Djokovic if he gets that far.

    And there goes Federer's chances of winning the tournament. Murray, Nadal and Djokovic and not to mention Chardy and Karlovic in the earlier rounds. He couldn't have got a tougher draw.

    Djokovic and Nadal both got easier draws.

    Interesting draw actually. Nishikori and Raonic rank much higher in most people's eyes nowadays so Novak isn't that much better off having them in his draw along with defending champ Wawrinka. Still, he's the default favourite.
    The only reason the bottom half looks stacked is because of 3 names - I suspect Murray will have a good tournament, still not sure about Nadal - with the exception of Youzhny (R1) and Rosol (R3) his section doesn't seem so bad, but says himself that he could crash out as he's not feeling ready to win

    Yeah exactly, this tourney & the 2015 season will be great I feel We have Delpo back as well, although I wouldn't expect too much from him just yet. Obviously you've got Nishikori & Raonic who will only get better in addition to Dimitrov & I'm also interested in how the likes of Kyrgios/Goffin/Vesely/Theim will do this season

    Delpo has pulled out citing injury. Weep for Delpo I do.

    Delpo came back a bit too soon. It's good that he has pulled out tbh.

    I think most people play tennis of some form on here. I play for my uni, despite not being the GOAT. What about you?

    That's fair enough, tennis is a good one for everyone just to be able to watch. To be honest I took up playing it fairly late compared to most!
