I hope Novak can still get up for this match now, for him last nights game was for the grand slam, after getting up emotionally for that game i hope he brings the same for tsonga.
It reminded me of Nalbandian Vs Federer last year, Nalby took the 1st set (or Fed won the 1st and 2nd?) but then Nalby came back and played great, then Federer just couldnt fight back.

Federer looked flat from the very first pt of the tournament where "wheres wally" almost beat him. ITs good to see him not win

It's 2:00 a.m. here in Iowa, USA, and I'm up to watch the final. From a neutral U.S. perspective, this should be a really good matchup. Both finalists really proved themselves in the semis. Rafael Nadal is a great baseliner, and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga really took him apart. Novak Djokovic is that young and talented up and comer, and to dismantle Federer on any surface other than clay is truly impressive. Djokovic has given Federer some trouble in the past, and seems to be coming into his own. To defeat Federer in straight sets is probably more impressive than Tsonga's beating Nadal, so slight odds edge has to go to Djokovic, but both men are coming into this final with a lot of momentum and Tsonga seems to have that passion and will to win going for him.

BTW, do any of you have any old matches of Margaret Court? She was a phenomenal Australian player, one of the best I've ever seen. Yet, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of footage on her out there, at least not that I've been able to find. I have her in a Wimbledon match against King, and believe me, she could easily play today.

Woo hoo, Novak wins the Aussie Open Crown.
I saw him play last year and was very impressed and was shocked to hear about his young age.
Yeah i do agree with Apollack about Novak's win over Fed bigger than Tsonga over Nadal, just because Nadal never really goes great here, last year had a hard time with murray then lost to Gonzalez, while Fed always plays well here and on a better court for him.

Was a good match though.

that's true. but if tsonga defeated nadal at roland garros, it will be much bigger than in the aussie grandslam
