    I'm starting with Nishikori - Kohlscreiber (because Eurosport is and that's what I'm watching). Nishikori is looking good early on.

    And... Eurosport's list video of the court. 20 mins in.

    On first viewing of the ad that will make up the annual onslaught of Melbourne commercials, I much prefer this one to those of previous years. That's mostly because it seems to have something to say, rather than an assortment of images and an annoying tune.

    Re: '16 AO Day 1 OoP & Discussion

    I tuned in briefly to Gibbs/Koukalova. Koukalova was a big underdog in betting, so I put $5 on her. I figured it was because very few people had bet and a few Gibbs fans skewed it.

    Gibbs went up 3-0 very quickly. Koukalova is a shell of her former self. She's hanging out several feet behind the baseline and wailing on the ball, but Gibbs is great at hurling up a lob. Instead of moving forward, Koukalova moves even farther back and just restarts the point. It might be a short day for her.

    They were down for 20+ minutes with no update or anything. Back now.

    I guess they got jealous of the half hour of chit chat and no tennis on ESPN and wanted to compensate

    Kvitova wasn't really challenged at all in winning the first set. Also, Kumkhum served like 5 DF. That's not going to get it done.

    It's montage time on ESPN. You can't even avoid it streaming from AppleTV.

    CSN is giving all her pickers a hard time, again!
    I was surprised how many picked her today, Carla is not good with heavy bandwagons.

    They're about to start discussing something else. There was a very short notice announcement of a presser with ATP and Tennis Integrity Unit, apparently.

    And she's through. She played fine, exactly as well as she needed to, and Kumkhum didn't really provide any obstacles. I'd say that it was a completely expected result, but it seems weird to say that based on their only previous meeting, here. in this round, a few hours ago.
    I'll miss you!

    Serena looking fierce as she takes the court. Hopefully her knee will live up to her facial expression.
