And he sang as he shoved that jumbuck in his tucker bag

Have y'all been watching the Australian Open? They've had some crazy good matches down there. It's the Serb surge! I could hardly stand it when Janko Tipsarevic had Federer on the ropes in that third round match. Federer seems like a great guy, and he's obviously already one of the all-time greats (if not the greatest) to play the game, but I was firmly in Janko's camp for this one. Sorry, Rog, but we need some new blood already. I'm easily bored of the same old thing. I think it's the Gemini in me. Or the gay in me, I'm never sure. Anyway, Tipsarevic couldn't quite turn the trick, but my main Serb, Novak Djokovic, is still in the hunt. Djokovic has been my boi ever since I watched him grind out that incredible five-setter in New York last year. Easily the best match I've ever seen live. Plus, look at him.

ADDED: The semi-finals are set and Serbs make up 25% of the men and 50% of the women. Crazy.

NEVER watched a tennis match? Don't know Hugh Jackman? If I didn't know how you feel about the Pope, I'd swear you were a cloistered nun.

Aren't you like a stone's throw from Wimbledon?

They don't let you throw stones at Wimbledon. I know, I tried. I missed too.

Not a nun, I just live under a rock known as 'academia.' I don't have a TV or much free time. What time I do have is spent rowing, which is a proper sport.

Pfft. Ball sports. Whatever.

So, the cloistered halls of academe instead of the cloistered halls of abstinence and figment worship. I knew that. With your bangin' bod, it would be a shame if you weren't, well, bangin'.

I LOVE Djokovic. Have you ever seen his impressions of the other players? Hilarious. He's the cutest. His game is just getting better and better.

Susie, his Sharapova KILLS.

I think he's ready to take out Federer.
