Melbourne, Australia - (Walkover Mess): "I'm thinkng six love, six-love, six-love for Friday evening's exhibition masterclass," Roger Federer predicted about his Australian Open semi-finals match against shit-hot Croatian wonderboy Novak Djokovic on Friday.
"Of course the crowd paid top dollar to see a career-best needle-match. Sponsors too. You think I should invoice him for the coaching session?
"I could just let Djokovic win the odd game or two, if only for the pleasure of seeing the sweat pouring down his earnest-looking, cocky litle face as I run him ragged around the court a bit... Still, maybe he'll learn from the experience.
"I anticipated it would all be over in under an hour.
"Djokovic. Sounds like joke-of-itch, like itching to win but stuck in the wrong game. Should have gone for competitive shove-ha'penny like Roddick!
"Ha, Roddick. He's now so sub-prime I wouldn't be surprised to see his American Express sponsors dump him along with the rest of the fluff."
Federer, the world number one seed, is unbeaten in a straight 200 consecutive matches and stands to double his sponsorship $$$$s when the Australian Open is in the bag.
