I am a writer studying a Bachelor of Arts Degree at Deakin University. I barrack for the Sydney Swans, New England Patriots, Melbourne Storm, Melbourne Rebels, Melbourne United, Melbourne Stars, Leicester City FC, and Melbourne Victory FC. I also enjoy playing tennis in my spare time while (unsuccessfully) attempting to replicate Roger Federer's brilliance.



He certainly could have made a difference.

Thanks, Spanner! 😊

How the Giants can topple the Magpies

I can see Nadal surpassing Federer’s Grand Slam count as early as next year. Winning the French Open is almost a given, while he also seems to thrive at the US Open.

Coach: Federer not stressed as Nadal closes in on grand slam total

Fair point, Dean, I can’t argue with that.

Eight talking points from AFL Round 1

Fair enough, Peter and Darren. I just found it really statisfying when Sydney won the Grand Final Replay against Hawthorn in 2015. For me, that was one of the highlights of that season.

I hope you’re right, Aligee.

Is Sydney's Horse just a one-trick pony?

Fair point, I personally enjoy the build-up to Grand Final Replays. I find it intriguing to see whether history repeats itself or whether the Runners-up gains a small measure of revenge.

I would like to see a Grand Final Replay as well, Josh, or better yet, if the AFL brought back the Rivalry Round!

Thanks for the call, Lachlan! It was quite a scrappy game to watch! I thought that the Bulldogs played better than the scoreboard suggests. However, they really have to improve their goal-kicking accuracy. Crows did well, considering their injury woes.

I think De Minaur will have a successful career, but it’s going to be difficult for him to surpass Hewitt.

Alex De Minaur can eclipse Lleyton Hewitt

For some reason, I think the Giants will bounce back this week.

Good luck to him.

Can’t argue with that.

Probably the right call.

Good point, Ritesh, Del Potro always seems to trouble Federer at the US Open.

The Bulldogs have had a horror run with injuries as well.

Giants to get to the bottom of horror injury toll

I agree, you take the win and move on.

Don't worry about the state of the game

It’s hard to get a read on Collingwood, but they should get the job done against the Saints.

Hawks to win easily.

Brisbane, the end is nigh

They’ll probably get a week.

AFL to appeal decisions against Curnow brothers

Hard to believe that Tomic won in straight sets the last time they played.

Millman way too good for Tomic in France final

Probably not a bad choice, I can see Lyon as a player that would lead by example.
