Tennis from “down under”

Australian Open underway and Roger Federer will take the court today!  YES!!!!!  I am a happy camper when I get to watch Roger Federer.  As an aside, Fed has announced he will skip the Davis Cup match next month between Switzerland and the Czech Republic.  No surprise to me.  When Roger announced his schedule for this year, it was clear that his intent was to maximize his opportunities to win “Slams” this year while taking care of himself and his family.  Love someone who has their priorities in order at the right stage in their career.  Can he win down under?  Maybe?  Djokovic is the favorite but never count out the Swiss maestro!

Coverage is on ESPN2 and Tennis Channel.
