Weekend Tennis Roundup

With so many upsets and a hampered Novak Djokovic, this year's Australian Open could suddenly be as wide open as Borna Coric doing what he has to do to receive free hotel accommodations. That and more BELOW.

Was stunned by Ostapenko's physique and performance knocking out Gauff. Right now I'd still like to see Sabalenka or Pliskova finally get their first major, but I really don't know what's going to happen as they always let me down.

Djokovic is still the huge favorite. But if his hamstring injury gets worse, this is a huge opportunity for the seven other guys. Obviously the key is to keep winning to allow yourself the chance to seize the moment.

The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat

Tommy Paul brings high fashion Down Under

Cam Norrie had a disappointing January, so has retreated to Central America for some R&R

Still haven't watched "Break Point." Is this from it?

Borna's first-round loss to Jiri Lehecka suddenly doesn't seem so dumb now that the Czech teen is in the quarterfinals 

This is why I'm afraid to get a caricature drawn! 

Bernabe Zapata shows some pierna

It was a great run to the round of 16 for J.J. Wolf

But not even this thrilling manspread could push him over the finish line against an inspired Ben Shelton

Are Matteo and I both cereal addicts?!

Borna at Fuzzy Pumper Barbershop 

I'm loving Jordan Thompson's new look

I wondered why Kevin Krawietz wasn't playing in Melbourne! His former partner, Andy Mies, is doing well without him ...

Italians are good for one thing

More Tommy style

How do I get Tom on the couch?

Fellow Sun Devil Nathan Ponwith picks up a double title in Ithaca

Matt Ebden's friend is about as erect as I would be in this situation

Enzo Couacaud is the only person to get a set of Djokovic so far in Melbourne

... although I'm not sure it was worth this!

Luckily he has a "friend" to help him during his recovery

Tommy and his No. 1 influencer

She may not be much to look at, but at least she gets him to do stuff like this 

No matter what happens, come Monday there will be 10 American men in the Top 50

My other favorite Spaniard: Pedro Martínez Portero

Lloyd Glasspool 

Marin Cilic had a successful operation

Marton Fucsovics had a good run, until he got up two sets on Jannik Sinner and his game disappeared

A good tournament for Jensen Brooksby, who seems to be maturing 

And last but not least, Borna really knows how to lay it on thiccc

Yes, that is from Break Point. If you want to stare at Mario for an hour, that is episode 2.
