The first Grand Slam of the year gets underway in a few hours' time at Melbourne Park.
First up is Kyle Edmund v 15th seed Jannik Sinner. Personally can't see Edmund winning that one.
A bit later on Jack Draper faces an even bigger test v defending champion Rafael Nadal.
Around the same...
To avoid hijacking a thread in the dug out:
Predictions for Hiac?
The club, new day, reigns (unfortunately) banks (unfortunately) and owens (due to either jericho or Hhh)
Hi guys, itís about time I think to start putting up suggestions for this years festival. I had bet A Plus Tard to retain his gold cup crown before he ran at Haydock, his run was too bad to be true and was subsequently found to have a travel sickness bug🤷*♂️. Anyway Iíve forgiven him that run and...
Great day of rugby today for those who enjoy their sportsmen to just get on with playing and not pretending to be injured😀 Just watched NZ cuff France, now Australia v Ireland, England v SA later, Scotland in Canada in the wee small hours. Alloa Rugby Club ball tonight as well. Will most likely...
See a few different threads at times about boxing so thought we could maybe have one mega thread?current fights future fights? Any gossip,favourite ever fight/fighters?
I see degale has got his unification match against badou jack should be a good fight fancy degale to win then,dunno where that...
Great start to the tournament.
Chizzy wins 6-5 with a 161 checkout.
First round in 4 months yesterday as Englandshire finally got its act together.
Pleased to report a net 69 / 39 points and a win for me in the first Wednesday Sweepie :cb Top golfer in a field of over 100
Body broken with Deep Heat, Deep Freeze and co-codamol needed this morning!
Sorry if already posted, but this deserves a thread, or possibly a whole forum, to itself:
No particular order here, because you canít compare between sports obviously. Maradona, Tiger, Senna, OíSullivan, Babe Ruth.

whos looking forward to the season on both accounts then?? What are peoples tips on Play-off contenders and overall winners? Is?
I feel i dont know the teams very well but i will be biased go for The Packers making the superbowl
dont know about the NCAA though :hmmm:
I just donít get it. Iíve been watching it all night tonight and itís a dreadful spectacle. So many people I know absolutely love it but Iím not seeing what they are. Most of the time itís grappling on the deck.
I can actually as a young lad at the time remember watching this and feeling so nervous and always thought it was a great sporting moment. Hope you enjoy a trip down memory lane 👍.
Great comeback from RvB v Humpheries.
Potentially tricky first tie for Gary Anderson, last on tonight v Adrian Lewis.
LIV Golf seems to be gaining momentum and it seems it is here to stay. Every other day we hear about possible defectors from the PGA and DP tours. If they already have the requisite 48 players/12 teams of 4, playing 54 holes, how will the original format be maintained? They wonít stop trying to...
No American Triple Crown winner this year then.
Good return to the track by Caravaggio at Naas. I still think he'll stay a mile but O'Brien's keeping him at sprint distances just now. Fav for the Commonwealth Cup at Royal Ascot.
My favourite two weeks of the year is almost here and after last year's tournament was cancelled due to the pandemic I'm looking forward to it more than ever.
The draw was made today and Andy Murray, who has received a wildcard, plays 24th seed Nikoloz Basilashvili in round one.
Earl Strickland continues to be a right fud!
What a fight that was.
Karate v Kung Fu.
Well worth watching.
Anyone been watching?
Personally really enjoy watching the snooker and the World Championships is one of my favourite two weeks of the sporting year.
Three names into the Quarter Finals already and two of them have been performing at this level for around 30 years - Ronnie O'Sullivan and Mark...
Put this in the Holy ground thread as well. RIP to a rugby legend and an absolute gentleman. Battled right to the end and has done so much for MND awareness.
Having critisised other countries for making playing too restrictive, Djokovic organised his own tournament and has ended up with the virus along with three others who took part. :rolleyes:
Fallon Sherrock hits a 170 check out to beat Clemens 5-3 and qualify for the next round. She is incredible....what is she going to do next?!??
Just back from yet another fantastic weekend of Rugby League at St James Park, Newcastle. The Magic Weekend truly is magic (if you enjoy rugby league). Six games over two days, fans mixing before, during, and after the games, two days of glorious sunshine. Superb value for money.
Anyone into this?
I went to see the Knicks play in New York a few years ago (tourist alert!) and Iíd keep an eye in their results now and again.
I noticed that the season has started back. Does anyone else watch it or have a team they support?
Just caught up with the final without knowing the result, some performance from Ross Smith, will Michael Smith ever manage to win a major?
Iím not sure if thereís ever been an F1 thread on here before so I thought Iíd start one.
Its the Austrian GP this week. A track that tends to favour cars with less power and a decent chassis. Iím a huge fan of Max Verstappen and I think heíll win for a second race in a row. Mercedes will always...
Great first 1/4 final so far
Wright 4-1 after the first mini session v Van Den Bergh, 5-5 after mini session 2.
Looking to start taking the kids back as they enjoyed it precovid. Has anyone been back since they switched from the racers and has much been done in way of development to the ice rink?
Good start this afternoon for Team Europe v Team World as Casper Ruud beats Jack Sock and Stefanos Tsitsipas beats Diego Schwartzman to put Europe 2-0 up.
Things looked good v Andy Murray v Alex De Minaur as he won the first set but De Minaur took the second set to force a championship tiebreak....
Finally forced to call it a day:
Greatest of them all IMHO.
In Glasgow next week. Filling up fast but some reasonably priced tickets available to watch some top players.
In the run up to the US Open it looks like we'll be spared the drama that we had earlier this year with regards to Novak Djokovic's participation at the Australian Open
He has announced that he cannot travel to the USA due to being unvaccinated and therefore won't be taking part in the...
I think this might be just the start of sport being cancelled.
One of my favourite two weeks of the year is almost here and the excitement is building after the draw has now been made.
Despite the controversy surrounding this year's tournament before a ball has been served, due to the All England Club's decision to ban Russian and Belarusian players from...
Brilliant Glory Kickboxing card earlier, and the chat about Boxing had me wondering if there's anyone in here with a shared passion for other combat sports such as these two? Admittedly im a bit of a geek and watch most events I can, its cracking entertainment.
Is this nonsense or the future of humanity? Iím very pessimistic for the future of our species. The climate crisis and the current obviously supported rise of extreme right politics robs me of any optimism. Capitalism, in its current unfettered form, is utterly destroying us. The mega-rich are...
Just beaten Robin Haase in 3 sets in Rotterdam . I didn`t see first set which he lost 2 - 6 but in terms of movement and attitude he looked much better than the last time I saw him in Roland Garros . Played 5 matches in Challenger in Italy , 1 in Montpellier last week and now at least 2 this week...
Eve Muirhead retires, some career she's had and will be a huge miss, she certainly goes out on a high
