What AO 2022 is really about

By Scoop Malinowski

Things are not always as they seem. Outward form deceives many. Rare is the mind that discerns what is carefully concealed within. – Phaedrus

So you may have heard by now that the Australian Open is being contested and a lot of spectacular matches have been played. If you trust the mainstream media this is partially true, a historic and important tennis tournament is being played in Melbourne.

Though this tournament will determine champions in the open girls, boys, doubles, mixed doubles and women’s events, it will not determine a true and undisputed champion in the closed men’s division.

In seven days time, only a runner-up and third place finisher to the defending and nine-time champion Novak Djokovic will be determined. Enjoy the AO everyone!

Everything that deceives is said to enchant. – Plato

    AO tyrants banning “Where is Peng Shuai?” Gear & banners from the grounds just when the WTA was shaming China. Their so concerned with “SAFETY” over freedom they deserve neither. Im going with our 11-time world surfing champ Kelly Slater who said insted of Stockholm Syndrome now lets call it Melborne Syndrome.

    Communist Lostralia is gone Doug. Niki Pilic said australia is a puppet nation controlled by usa and great britain. Easy to connect those dots.

    Medvedev is the clear favorite to win but three other players impress me the most because of how well they are playing and how they are using emotional adrenaline and showing a body language and fire that they truly believe it’s their time and they can win this (runner up to Novak) title. Berretini is at the top of his game again and roaring like Hewitt, also hitting those backhand slice winners down the line like vintage Hewitt. Berrettini has not lost to anyone in the last four Grand Slams besides three times to Novak. Monfils also looks at his very best right now at 35, he’s playing perfect and his emotional fire is perfect, it looks like his time has come. If he can sustain this level and avoid the dud match which has been his problem all career. Madison Keys also looks and sounds different, showing a new fire and urgent intensity, instead of the mindless basher she used to be. Keys looks like she can do it but will have to sustain the level and beat some pretty formidable challengers ahead. Rafa of course will be tough to beat as always.
