Very annoying that CH9 can't get their act together and use 9GO or 9Gem for a second tennis channel all day rather than reruns of coughpy american rubbish.I've checked a couple of times - no Gem/Go at the moment. At times mention 9 Now which I assume is their streaming platform.
Not sure even Kokkinakis was having any effect on Kyrgios honestly.Looking forward to it! I was getting concerned that Kyrgios would lose his bottle completely towards the end but Kokkinakis seemed to keep him just simmering and under cointrol.
I thought a complaint against Kyrgios was that he encouraged crowd noise. Pot kettle?Not sure even Kokkinakis was having any effect on Kyrgios honestly.
Best I could tell Kyrgios just blew up on two let calls and asking umpire (a few times) to monitor crowd noise on service action.
Kyrgios holding on a bit too tight

Well it would be interesting if those who who aren't named came out and thrashed them and there was lots of racquet smashing.The Guardian managed to mention the names of the 'other' pair in the men's doubles final but devoted the rest of the article to the Kyrgiot and coughy Knackers. ABC 24 at first seemed to think that the Kyrgiot and coughy Knackers were the only Australians in the final, but has at least now acknowledged it's an all Australian final although I'm yet to see or hear Ebden and Purcell's names mentioned by the ABC. Last night's ABC 24 special tennis wrap up with that breathless Irish person live from Melbourne Park failed to mention them at all . Talked about Barty and Alcott of course, but her men's doubles comments were only about that clownish pair and she's supposed to be a sport specialist.
I despair of journalists sometimes . Correction - a lot of the time.
I’m off the see the Greek God v Russian chess master tonight….. with the forecasts I’m glad RLA will have roof closedWell it would be interesting if those who who aren't named came out and thrashed them and there was lots of racquet smashing.
Given both teams are equals I think the headline summarises the issue though.ABC does have an article which names both teams:
The remarkable doubles campaign of Nick Kyrgios and Thanasi Kokkinakis again captures the crowd's imagination at the Australian Open, as they book a clash with fellow local pairing Matt Ebden and Max Purcell.www.abc.net.au
So glad they are still doing a Woodward and Bernstein on this caper. It will be great if they uncover the truthFollowing the initial report from the German research group called Zerforschung on Djokovi’s Serbian Covid test results more doubt has been cast on their legitimacy.
The BBC and a Serbian researcher based in the US collated data from Serbian Covid certificates issued by the same authority and found they are numbered sequentially, suggesting the numbered certificates tendered to the Australian court in his application to stay in Australia are incorrect.
There are three main possibilitiesSo glad they are still doing a Woodward and Bernstein on this caper. It will be great if they uncover the truth
