Up North & Down Under

NBA News

Philadelphia 76ers 99 Toronto Raptors 95

Tennis - Australian Open

End of the road for Argentina at the Australian Open as both Juan MONACO and David NALBANDIAN went out in the third round.

Despite taking the first set 6-3, MONACO was not able to keep the momentum going as 13th seed Tomas BERDYCH from the Czech Rep prevailed in the next three sets 6-3, 7-6 & 6-2.

David NALBANDIAN virtually had no answer in his match against Spaniard Juan Carlos FERRERO as he lost 1-6, 2-6 & 3-6.
The lack of confidence from NALBANDIAN was well displayed when he failed to convert two simple overheads in the final game of the match.

Well, looks like we'll just have to look forward towards Roland Garros.

Nocioni's been great since he took that nasty looking fall against the Magic. It makes me wonder if the crash realigned his back rather than tweaked it! Or maybe it just knocked him back into the 2005! Anyway... I hope he stays there.
