Gentlemen thank you. Ask Her out. And it's time for the first Grand Slam of the year. Jala Ladies and gentlemen and welcome to the Australian Open preview show from the passing shots. Everyone and welcome to the passing shot. The ten is focused by fans for fans with Joel and Kim. Today we are going to be dissecting. The men and women's jaws from the Australian Open Twenty four hours away came from the first grandson of the air. I know that we're kind of thousands of miles away on the other side of the world but I am I am here. I am excited and I can't wait me too. And I've just been scouring the jurors Joe for all our favorite players and this new Dennis Estimate Malik Jeziri. They didn't even make qualifying by. I think she giggled him. He's playing like some random challenger in the middle of nowhere I think he got to the final. I mean lost in the final but we say about the Australian. I definitely am despite his absence. I've just been looking through the drawers this weekend and trying to see if my predictions I made a couple of weeks ago will still country. I mean I'm still kind of set in that joke. Which is is going to walk away with the title agencies. You know he hasn't got the easiest rule but I can't see it being anyone else but him but let's have a look at the top seeds and kind of that projected Paul's ways Save any other neighbor. That might stop them on their way in an early round the Jacob Rich. I mean yeah. Let's start with the about your bitch because I still think he is the form I mean he is the favor like there's no doubt. Here's the favorite going into the Australian Open. Given his. You know his record in Melbourne but also given his record this season it just excite. We've already kind of entered peak Jovic phase and I mean he is going to be a tough. He's going to be a tough person to be but having said that I think of the you know the big three. He's got probably the trickiest trick round one match. I'd say Jan Leonard Strath. Yeah that's the night session on the first on the first day tomorrow so yeah. That could be could be bit tricky. He might lead us. Perhaps I want for stuff is an and I mean the thing I would say about joke. Which is because of the HP COP? I didn't have thought would have altered his preparations because he doesn't normally play a warm-up event going into the AO so. I'm not sure if that would make any difference having played. You know quite a few matches there. But I mean he's going for his eighth title which that alone says everything and intra. Interestingly Serena Williams will say beginning for her eighth title which I thought was if they both end up winning that's quite nice storyline incident. Look here's his paw. I mean as I say we got strip in the first round who I think generally could be quite a tough first round opponent he went to one the HP Cup. He seemed quite comfortably won and four and generally. I think he's been he's been quite decent at Grand Slams. He's already done in Australia but Yeah I sent anything. That could be a little bit of a joke. It's GonNa be needs to be on his game from the first point in round one. But if he comes through that he's ever qualifier Ito from Japan them British fans. He could come up against Dan Evans in the third round followed by potentially Schwartzman or live at U. I use I think has been too quiet fairly good. Start to the season fellow. Serve beating Jackovitch happen with that. I just don't see the jude outcry. Place Spanish players. They they tend Steve. Very well against him. But getting into the business end from the quarterfinals stage. I mean he has surpass In his quarter And then potentially Federer in the semifinals and of course in the Dow or Medvedev or on the bottom half he could he could meet in the finals so we could have A. We could already have kind of a repeat of the ATP Cup kind of singles rubber between Jovic and Adele. We could have the again in the final in the Australian Open. But yeah you know. I think I think you'd be fairly happy with that. You know you come through the first round job probably a bit of a tester and I think yeah. You shouldn't lose too many. You have too many minutes on court. I think going into kind of the business and do you think yeah. I think sit surpassed probably the first genuine danger. Mom for Djokovic and that's that's just a shaving kit surpass kind of keeps his form going from the end of last year when he couldn't he won'the finals say ask for data evidence. I've actually go him losing in the second round. So I ain't GonNa get Brown matchup with Richard Hiking. I mean what Evans took out. This is very wishful thinking getting ahead of ourselves but that would be quite a story. I mean we'll be talking about that. And that was part of our did. Ask Our listeners about Evans and where he would collect that so we'll we'll come unto those predictions at a bit but yeah I hope to. I think I think Evans kids. I'd say evidence is going to take out nobody jock itch you get. He needs to still. Doesn't these debates. Let's look at Rutgers. Projected true so. I think forever like he's not really going to face a test until the fourth round where you know. We've got a potential carry shot. Which is oversee going to be a popcorn night's session match if it does come to the Yeah he's first few rounds Hugo delion possibly dope on a soldier from the second round and then have created said round. He won't day is a very good player. But Yeah curios fourth-round it's kind of looking looking likely oviously. We sold them each other at Wimbledon and that was quite entertaining today of Kerry is going to get the fourth round of Roy A it's not certain but I mean I think we've I think we've seen like I like to think we see in a new nick curiosity season and this is not that curious where I'm going to be like you have to almost take it like match by match but at the same time. Yeah I caught him a bit like the I am excited. Potentially by a Nidal Curiel fourth-round match but again we to take that route by round because they carry us. What side of the bed does he wake up on? But yes. I think that could be a very tasty match up. The moving on moving on from that era qualify knows. Could Face Dominic team who? I'm looking for the main up up for debate. Whether dominant team gets to the quarterfinals person listeners sink but was it wasn't that great in tippy cut and that's really his only kind of A competitive match practice lost borna courage and Huber her cash in three sets. So and you know he's never been past the fourth round of the Australian Open. Don't again on him. Getting the cool to maybe. We underestimating him but he just doesn't. He did really well at the water finals at the end of the year. But yeah something in my mind when I think of John McCain now coming in today I don't see him up there and also I think USA Medvedev doing very well at the peacock becoming the fourth seed at the expense of team. I oversee everything. That's how teams favors so You know having to face of potentially needle in a quarterfinal. Yeah Yeah I see team. Get out being brutally honest safety. He's the first big seed in the men's draw weight. Well Okay and then we have in the semi's Medvedev or I mean basically by script it could be well. I think I gave. This is probably very boarded. Team is a is a walking seed in the first week. You know. Surely Julie and say I think Andre Rib love is in this compartment of the draw and would face Medvedev in the Kuta if you relive gets rib lavish kind of the man of the moment. He has lost a match in twenty twenty one to back to back titles And at late so I got him reaching the quarters. Personally I didn't think he would beat Medvedev but I think he might give money. It remains to be seen on stage if he can keep his consecutive five-set matches. But yeah I said anything probably will be Medvedev Medvedev doll semifinal in which case could be on for a repeat of the classic. Usa Pin final from last year. If if that does happen came we fill it? We might as well reschedule. Catch up already a to like the next off to because yeah not went onto like the middle of night birth. Yeah that that would be. I mean that would be treat for the fans and then yet again could play Jackovitch Federer in in the final. Say T- thing I mean. Let's look talking with Roger Federer. I think he's go. I don't write draw. He think he's go see Jones in the first round. I think also a walk in the Park Federer. Cryan rich second round her cash that round the interesting because he's beating me. Yeah that for me is a that is for me as a bit of a danger like a watch out. I think for ME DANGER BUT NOT FEDERAL LEASING DANGER. Federal has had that rogue sort of has lost two players. We would just say no expecting on John. Millman and also kind of federal has not played yet the season. He's not played you know he's he's not played. Any warmer events didn't play. Atp Cup so you know going into Australia going into Melbourne is he gonNa be short match practice that carpet and he so yeah. This will be different than he has an. He hasn't had a warm up. But I mean he's got shapoval off in the fourth round or could be Grigor Dimitrov. Few oversee beat him at the USA person so I think his yeah. Fed and full frown. Maybe Bit Dodgy Crucified Bertini Folk Mania either of them like obsessing federal so I think if Edrich get through third and fourth round. He'll be well on his way to match up with joke. If you play with Bertini Folk Nina. I think you'd be looking your lips. I will be. I will be very impressed. If Bertini Offauq NIIMI Get to get to the quarterfinal stage. Yeah Bertini how? Great season last year. I feel like there's this overriding sense that it was a bit of a fluke but like a he had his. He's had his moment. But you know you might. Well I'd love him to prove meowing let let's see but I just just kind of see Bertini Orkney. I think we could have a a first-time quarter-finalists come up against Roger Federer and then possibly a lamb to the slaughter scenario better four of six one. Yeah for potentially Jackovitch or SIS passing. Semi's could be passed. That could be a rematch. If if he does the unthinkable comes through. Novak an yeah I mean. We're we're banking on a Fidel final. Lump me eight. I'm sure it will happen. Because they're in a facing size of the draw of see. That was the final back in two thousand seventeen. I believe say if Rafa lost when I would be quite annoyed. Because he's already lost like four the final say a. It would be lovely to see him get enough time to here. Yeah let's look at the full of the as we said. Data is Medvedev. So I think it's perhaps the most intriguing like he's got Francis T.F. Oh who was a cool to find list hair loss jet in the first round? Say I mean that's bit over t.f? Over the map of the might be called an interesting match and then secretive fed round could have stand them out in the fourth round is so I think Medvedev might be buying some having some really good cracking matches and maybe endearing himself to the the crowd. Us thinking that it's GonNa be more is going to be more bad dialogue between and I'm looking forward to his pace about conferences. Boom there's a batches of the. Yeah Yeah I think he. He's got. He's got some tough opponents. You feel that he's he's able to grind grind them out in tight. Three four set four set saw. Yeah but I mean he is the fourth seed you can make the most. You can make the most of that. Do you think with this draw. Could could he get to the semifinals? I mean I think it's possible but I do think like obviously he did say well this. Us Open swing last summer and then he got very tied in the last stages. I mean if he's fresh hopefully he would regain the form of law summa but it's still early days in the sense that he hasn't yet proven that he can maintain that form for a really long period of time safe. He was early in this lab. That would be question marks about a his longevity at the top whether it was kind of a fleet that he played say well lost. It's true but I mean like ATP. I think he went. I think he didn't lose a match. The yeah he was you know I think I think he's at the moment. I still think he's carrying on that form from last season. But yeah let's see. Let us see how he does in the show moving. Let's move on so we've got to discuss kind of the top. The top four Four seeds of course there are some very tasty round one matches You know I think we already spoke about Medvedev. Tefa which again I think is a very nice macho won one match that did stand out for me. Bautisa versus Feliciano Lopez. I would say annoy the kind of got away because I just thought actually. I was playing himself into a bit of four wasn't he? He was pretty well so yeah it was one of the matches in one day and it was reminiscent of his his runner. Queens which is called for the whole day then he goes and gets about east rookie in the first round. Who is obviously Mr Consistent and actually I think about Easter He yeah he reached the quarter sell-offs Jitney and oversee he. Yeah he was in a big name for that to say. Yeah. That'd be an interesting job. We will say go full well folk laney's Fang Riley a poker so I think that could go either way. We've got Boehner Court against some query. Go what was happening to Sam Query. He's really Gone off the radar and they go on against Jeremy Shaw. That'd be flowing match very beautiful mattress. So WE'VE I. We've also got Kevin Anderson who's now back from injury over the former world number four and he could face. I think Taylor. Fritz in the second round the favorite qualifies in the first round. But I think look quite tasty on you know so soon from his kind of quiet. Yeah the injury lay-off so You know again. I think he could be. He could be someone to reckon with certainly going into potentially going into the second week. Oh say fish players. As you mentioned. Donovan's He oh you go in the first round. He's got a winnable match. I think it just have a look. See he's called Mckenzie McDonald I like had previously. What's that show and I mean that could be really entertaining match but in Dan's recent form he reached the quarters eight in Adelaide losing to replay three solid performance. And eat it for the first time. As lomb he's got Mackenzie Madonna first round possibly lasley share in the second round Serbian player and then again possibly Jovic said round. So we'll say I mean I didn't see him getting beyond the third round. But if he could just his his seating that would be great and then we've got called Edmund. He well he's playing Dusan lawyer Bitch. Yeah I wouldn't be surprised. I mean I would be more surprised at meant Edmund Loo- i- Edmonds maybe lose out in four of four or five. I think lavish has had a really good start with the Serbia team that got to the ATP Cup Final. Oh sorry Thing and but Edwin does have a new case in. Hey Franco Davin who is famous for proving previously having coached Oh portray when he won the US Apron. I know Edmund on on these courts has has good. History from injury is very true. Say you never named cabinet against Say I didn't expect to win that one but it's possible. It's not the worst role for him. I would give a bad the edge on that one. I think yeah. I think of Donovan's best of that. Show without with with the absence of Andy Murray and as she just quit you talk about that because he did come out in the news earlier this week that he is still recuperating from this pelvic injury and he shed update the basic said that. He's not a he's pulled out of. I think was Rotterdam and more than Pant Elliott. So he's he's not even date back on when he's going to be back in court which for British fans knew about others but for me. It's a bit. It's a bit worrying but let's see if we can get he can come back on the tennis court because he has been to log already. It's just endless. Frustration isn't Eber. Let's get back on court and kind of carry on the Comeback Abbott. Let's take a quick break now and then we'll be back to discuss the women's draw so joe women's drool time. Who's your money on for for that fool like any tennis was played in twenty twenty and before the draws don. I hit put up as my winner which I'm really not sure. Bye Good luck with that. Adelaide and hasn't really paid March and Hash policy is looking sweet going into the she's just one at late. She's the first Australian women to win a title at home since two thousand eleven and I thought she was going to kind of get a bit nervous or I don't know just the feel the pressure but she seems really relaxed and so I'm not sure that's GonNa be a factor for her. She just seems such a team around her. You've per you've put on the script that you think. She has a decent drool. Well what do you think the complete opposite? I mean she's Ripe Akina. Potentially in the third round to gain isn't that is a play you don't WanNa face. She's completely informed with. She won she. She wasn't one hope. Our is our island. Chen's then yes I think is a nightmare. Alison riske. We'd know is very good player on her day at Grand Slam level can take out. You know big big name players potentially in the fourth round and then you go live a convertible or Madison keys potentially in the quarterfinals which you know Grand Pedigree Madison Keys. One of the cleanest boo strikes zero on the women's tool. Oh and then if you get through that I saw curl Serena I just think I think she's. She's going absolutely no matter. How good tennis shoes playing? She's got an absolute nightmare drawer. I think can I just say with Dr Akina? I've put this down before she went and one. Haibo say I mean thing is maybe we don't know what Robbie Keane can assign. She wanted to even get to. The third round is so unpredictable. Net which is why love it but alison risk as well. She did beat bought it last year. I think that was in the fourth round yet. Not An easy will. Also he doesn't have an easy job is carrying a push cover. I think she's got a tough one militant vich in the first round. He we know on High Day can beat the sheet bought at the Fed Cup Australia. Exactly Pavlik Schenker said round von Druce. He's come back from injury and has been doing really well already full house she has. She is fundraise. I'll be amazed if greedy solid results in the first weeks. Okay I mean yeah if I can get through to the quarters I can. I can see fish getting to the semi's but but we know she's just not in. She doesn't have that sort of slam she's the we overlooked so crazy that we we. It's it's like I think know with the I mean with the Women's Joyce I it's it might not go to the the seeds as much You know as I said I think Party and pushed even though the number one and number two seed I think. Yeah they've got. They've got pretty tricky draws compared to on some of the other players. Serena's Troy's very the I think a part of paver. I think she did have a big scout last year. I think's checkout kerber somewhere but I mean not in any form say Sedan Zek Second Round. Wang's third round possibly called enter in the dot com does not going to get. There is Shay very as she did probably more likely to be stream. Scott who got that line that will be tasting especially as strom scares now coached by. Sasha budget and who spent many years working of Serena and a so called and I think everyone's kind of looking at that Serena assault culture as of being kind of the goatee popcorn match When they when they face each other in the in the course if they get that far I think we'd be looking at war Serena Balti- semi or Serena Asaka. I mean sorry. Baltia soccer semi. They're in the same segment of the United States withdrawal. So that's looking. Perhaps the most likely scenario I WOULD. I would think it would be great to see Serena play at Balti in the semi finals. In Ashby's home slams Serena going full would slam twenty four thing. That would be such a such a match and talking about Soka. She's she's at all right joy. Thank third round. She could play bubble restricts giver or possibly Coca Gulf. She would get that fall of say. Let's just mentioned cake. Gulf has been given Venus Williams in the first round unbelievable of slow match from the Gods. That's like a second time in threes. Lives because they face each other at Wimbledon one one. And I'm predicting the gopher win this one as well because Venus literally no form at all. She hasn't played in months. I think we can argue about the collect. The show having none of how we just got to win win the whole tournament. Golf Okay so anyway. One of the might come up against the soccer in the third round fourth round could be severe. Kenan for soccer Then yet the quarter likely to be Serena I mean it's just there's so much death death moments tennis. Just look at some of the first round matches. Madison keys. Beat them pretty good form reaching the final in Brisbane. She's Daria has it. Came to in the first round which casinos Phoolan from West. She will system nauseous. She has no confidence. Probably isn't any good form that still tasty match because we have keener is capable so stevens in absolutely no full leather. She loves to lie. I think she lost to light someone outside the top two hundred in like three and to the other week the other day Jiang. I can't see her living up to conceal her. Which Saints Saint Stephen's people? Say Stephen side is probably going to hate me saying this. Saint Stephen's like the the women's version of Alex vary of at the moment. Yeah I mean I just. I'm looking at her and the Jordan tightly discounting her which might be too. You know my discredit any on you. Right hand new discount a grand slam winner well anti-racist each other final slams and Chase Sheila Sunburn shape and finally to highlight so just when when when someone's not being in any form it's just really hard to see them run together. We've also got Donna. Vecchio playing shower paver in the first round which is I think that's such a good match up your Comes through Suarez Navarro. Isn't she one of your favorite show? She's thanks I is a lost season tall came. We could save these moments. I expecting to victory or something has been in good form. So you're GONNA say Putin server against C- Waesche way. I think I'm saying wrong. I mean see way shape just such a chilled out sort of player. An pretense of is just like the most angriest lady complete polar opposites which will probably make good Good Fun for the spectators and yet von Druce Avert Kazaks over an mlive. Not Prescriber. Say Yes some interesting again. Some interesting fascinating round match-ups that genuine. You could go either way. I think is interesting that we've got. We've got players in the draw that have proven themselves at Grand Slams. The past oil-based got of writing the ball. Plays like so. Steve is Angelique. Kerber. We haven't even mentioned that. I had law season I. It's just like it's semi different unknown quantities lurking in the women's draw it's going to be And another one. I mean we've got we'LL SNIA K. She's retiring after the cost. You say she she's got Christie on in the first round which is perfectly evidently winnable. I think she might snacky can progress through. She may be on to face Serena in the fourth round Like that could happen. Which would be a nice. A nice kind of ending. Was the AKI Cassia. Best mates were Serena so she has a decent tournament if it's if it's going to be if it's a nice ending. I'm pretty sure that playing each other in like Wozniak exhibition farewell. Also Adam Danielle Collins. She has been in pre fiery form In the run-up to oversee she was a semifinalist last year. But she lost to ball in the semi's in Adelaide Just just she lost week and ready this year. She's beaten bench and Selena Which is crazy so you look out for her in the drawer because I think she could potentially meet. Oh I think she can meet In the third round which is not good for my prediction. Astle and also. She's a play Jennifer Brady in the first round. Who you beat Balti- in Brisbane on sharp UV. Insurance Act three cookout first round did. Yeah so lots of exciting matchups. I mean. I'm still under totally undecided. When it comes to the Minstrel I think it could be bossy. Asaka SERENA I think these three I think this is will come from one of those players Selena no even spoken out SIS. Linens used to be one of the most consistent look really good Omaha core the USA Serena. She's I call ins last week though and you slam. She just doesn't seem to reach the semi's of Wimbledon last year so I think it was but she just lacks kind of conviction. I look at her and saying. Oh she's GonNa do Shit could. Y- benches is really good record against like a soccer. We know she cannot be anyone on a given day. So I pass anything ASAKA SERENA OBOE. Say the time to probably go to one of them. And we've got we've got British interests as well and we go quite a lot of purchase interests. Actually because you know go off see Konta Katie. Bought is going to be. That had the Watson. He's been a great run full also the manger and hurt does qualified as well As as I saw her it dot qualifying. I was thinking while they call go any worse than last time. Maria Sharapova dumps it was the first matches well like it was that she match on on whatever on show court and the off with our say hopefully I mean I think she faces a Misaki Doi. in this first round. So you know. I think she's she. She's playing well at the moment. And Yeah that's the Cohen Como. Harriet DOT COM on some games against Masaaki. Yeah she could. I think she could. She could win Walnut Fisher. I mean it's more winnable within Katie Boulter Selena first round. I so tricky. I don't. I'm not expecting. I mean borders as her first match back. And then you go around. That's tasty not ideal also. I have low expectations for job Qatar. She's playing on Yobbo first round and it didn't beat her eastern last year. I think it rings a bell. I don't see Jerry's been struggling with his knee injury so I just ate knew. Exactly what kind of a shape? She's going to be in so I'm going to go in there. Not Expecting too much Heather Watson. I think maybe she's the one we should be looking at you know. She reached the semi. Hey Ball in. Odi just lost to rookie was close. Three set match in that semi and she's Got Christina Fishkhabur. So I think it'd be great if he could make a run here like I mean have since she loves loves playing Hobart I think she she wanted number of years ago or whatever and you know. She's definitely paid us off in some form and yeah I think. I think my is more Yaron Watson Than Than Joe Concert because you know I mean yes. I agree with counter ECON writer off at your own peril. This knee injury I. It sounds like that's more kind of like manage it as opposed to like it's going to keep me out of tennis for for however long how. Yeah I'm more excited more more optimistic about Watson's chances than counters. We get embroiled in another long epic three-set Match Koslov stress to any British fans watching. I'm cool side. We should say the doubles draws have. Come out as well say. I think we're going to be looking at them. More round one catch up because doubles doesn't typically saw a couple of days in but one thing. We should bent Geneva. Well number one men in men's doubles Robert. Farah has well. It's been a new surrounding at drugs to assist in that Joe so he's not playing the Australian Open. He tested positive for substance. He's he I think. He originally came out cited personal reasons for not playing but then basically came out that he failed a drugs and the reason he The reason for that his words not mine was essentially some meat he was eating in Columbia normally. Has this drug in it or something. He needs said he because he'd been eating a lot of meat it's shown up. Yeah so I mean Dana. I can't come pick nece. Do they need to investigate? We'll see how long it will be when the outcome of that but yeah it's a shame because they will be doing very well and I'm not sure if his partner Kabala has found an EP. I'm sure he probably would have done being number one. Jim Don't worry there is that will be still Lleyton. Hewitt's doubles at Grand Slams. He's been given a wildcard. Another wildcard with Jordan Thompson. Said they will be in the men's doubles. Joe's is lying here. Just GonNa play. Every men's doubles like eighty in the men's doubles and while called until you say ashfall ts in the women's double stroller. We know she normally plays doubles as well. But it's interesting that she's still deciding to do that. She's playing with Yulia Girgis. So they're not seeded but yet we know she's a terrific doubles player as well so it's just interesting that she still deciding cdot alongside has singles campaign as well. Yeah definitely right. Let's move on to collect a set which I know. We have both been very excited about our listeners. Have been very excited about. They've been putting that prediction to us. Isn't that drove? I think we've got about. I think we've had thirty thirty entries now some something around then But yes this is collect for our listeners. Who Don't know. This is our a predictions for tournament. We pick six players three men three women and you tell us. How far do you think they're going to go in the drool so we announced on twitter earlier this week that the players for our collector set Novak Djokovic Andre Rube leff Don Evans. An from the women's side Cocoa Golf Serena Williams and Ash Bharti. So Yeah we've had our listeners. Giving us their predictions some. I agree with some. I don't agree with but we are going to reveal our predictions. Now Kim. I mean you've alluded so some of the some of them some of your thoughts. Let's start with the men Novak Jackovitch. Well said he's going to win. Talk to you. I mean that was yeah. That was probably the most agreed on looking at the everybody's at did say that was probably almost. The basic agreed agreed on Sir. Say let's move. Let's get to relive what ending an IVC ended up as a quarter finalist leasing to Medvedev. Say we I also got him as a quote Melissa I I think he could play. He could play David Goffin. Who's technically a higher seed third round Spot but if he comes through that yeah it's it's pretty a Thinki- can navigate it to the quotas. Say One of our listeners. For him to win. I think I really ever French Bay Yet so Dan Evans will be down. Evans I have gone for him. Getting to round three losing to Novak Djokovic. Three three in love or something But Yeah I've gone. I think I've gone. Yeah I think he's. He's playing really well. I don't really see. Yeah I think he can. I think you'll get to the second round. I think he's GonNa lose to Leslie Happier. Hey Cool Hey. I'm not sure I've just have have an inkling that he might not get to the third round Busey Louis C. K. So Co Golf Ground One. Oh yea did say easily be banking on Venus Williams. Victory hasn't played since October. I've called Bake. I've definitely have gone back. I still think this is like a today's fifty fifty. I think he'll be fired up. And you know. I don't think it will mitigate our of how off court. She has been over the last few months. Venus Williams so go round one exit. Okay well I haven't gotten that much further. I've got go fleecing in the second round. I think she's would possibly play. Bubble restricts is sort. Don't see her. Actually I've coming strips cover. I do think the will do quite far in the doubles say with Casey McNally. Good stubble stained. Say I'm more excited? May Be to see the doubles say Serena Williams a well if if you if you win like sitting in the previous in the previous season to season preview show. Yeah I'm seeing Serena Williams victory mogok cool. It's GonNa hate it everyone else. Everyone else is GonNa love it and I think yes. She's finally going to. She's finally GonNa win. Win a Grand Slam. Final Post Post. Motherhood say it's really hard to predict when you have them step on call yet because after two rounds eight and we'd probably be able to make more accurate predictions for Serena won. Auckland look great I know but I was saying. She didn't think she she beat him. An ever explain overseas should be Pagoda. Complete. But they weren't like top top players so I still have. Question marks a facing up to a soccer. And I've actually put Serena leasing in the quarterfinals. I think ASARCO beat her. Say Hey reno soccer I mean trusting and Ashburn not what we think. Bharti gone there. I wrote this down one SEC ash party quarterfinals losing to convert over. Oh okay I go Ashkenazi quarterfinals. Leasing two keys. Okay okay. I've still. There's a question mark in my mind about Balti- on the home stage and the stages so I think in my mind. Because I put Serena Ashburn not both UH schools finace. I'm thinking assault is going to get through them. Base wealth gets the jewel. I'm still hating. Hallett will start the season but she has a likely but we will see. We'll say yes we will see and listeners. If you want to enter our collect there is still time. It's literally open up until the first up until the La- the first point of Australian Open so if you WANNA enter and you're on twitter just tweet us at passing shot pod with your predictions.

We still haven't critical a prize for winning. Collect what more could anyone one I have been. I have been for everyone who has ended.

It's the baby is live but it looks pretty terrible But I will be working on that to get a get a leaderboard out there For to recognize our best the best predictors among saw listeners. And also whether you could be Kim Probably not difficult based on all history of predictions but Yes yes collect Yeah looking forward to that. Yeah I think that's I think that kind of wraps it up at the end of kind of pretty much. Each round to give all T- pence worth or happenings at the A so we'll be keeping up today as the tournament gays on ever ready to have no sleep the next two weeks out. I'm working really weird. Shift patterns at the moment. Say I've realized that my window sleep is actually the exact window where the plane on which is seen as the tennis starts basically need to sleep and then when I wake up. It's probably pretty much over so I might be watching a lot on catch up over the next two weeks but we'll see how it goes. I wish I was that I mean the weather in Melbourne I mean. Obviously she's the air quality Really affected the qualifying. I think that you keep effect she was. She collapsed On the call place that they felt unwell because of the the APP at its hailing. At the moment. It's rain is. The rain is the issue more than smoke now. I if his so you know I think there's even the the the I think play four day one actually might be. It might be a bit stops up because of the the weather on the outside caused nor under on any of roof so Yeah I don't think smoke is going to. Hopefully smoke is not going to be an issue because I think the rain has come an assault. That was sort that all out.
