To save the Sports Person of the Year thread from going completely off topic I thought I'd make this thread for tennis discussions and more specifically, the Australian Open. So, who are you backing? Do you believe Murray is a serious title contender or do you agree with Federer's comments that he doesn't warrant being the favourite? Personally I'm a big Nadal fan, but I don't know how he'll go. He's not known for doing well on the hard courts, but at the same time he's been working hard on that aspect of his game and could surprise a few people. I suppose we'll know after the first couple of matches.
