I follow cricket, tennis and AFL but have recently grown to like, most if not all sport. I support all teams based in Melbourne and Australia. I spend way too much time watching sport on tv and not enough time playing it.
Favourite sporting event is the Olympic Games; favourite moment is Nadal dethroning Federer at the 2008 Wimbledon final.

Scotland’s Greig Laidlaw converted a penalty goal after the full-time hooter to cause a massive boilover, upsetting the more fancied Wallabies 9-6 in extreme conditions at Hunter Stadium.
Lleyton Hewitt is getting old, he’s 31 and married with three children. It’s been almost a decade since his last victory in a major.
Time for the 2012 French Open – the second of the four majors and the premier clay event on the calendar. The main narrative for the men centres on the rivalry between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal which has almost superseded the Federer-Nadal rivalry.
The 2012 French Open women’s draw is wide open and choosing a winner is a lottery. Two of the big favourites -Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova – were drawn in the same quarter.
