Rafael Nadal

So, who is your money on today?

Well, it’s the first day of the Australian Open and I’m getting in early and predicting that Rafael Nadal will make it as far as the semis.  He’s going to send Bernard Tomic packing pretty early on, but I don’t think he’ll go the distance this year.

Thats just my prediction from what we’ve seen on the ground so far, but if you have any insights or guesses then feel free to leave them in the comments section below.

Maria Sharapova

When she’s not spruiking her line of candy, Sharapova is a great tennis player and definitely one to watch in the 2014 championship.

Sure, we all need to create an income, but using her high profile as a sportsperson to sell sugary products seems a little ironic.  Surely our kids are getting chubby enough, without the help of athletes selling them candy?!

For now though, we’ll focus on the excellent tennis that she is bound to be playing in Melbourne this year.
