What a way to start the year

What a brilliant couple of weeks tennis we've had.

For British fans, Jo Konta won Sydney, had good run in AO and is near top of race to WTA finals already.

Dan Evans came of age in a Major and is at new career high.

Shocks for top seeds Murray, Nole, Kerber, Radwanska made for hugely exciting draw.

Heart warming tales of Istomin and his mum, Baroni and her resurrection and then of course 2 fairytale finals and history made.

What a brilliant sport and already can't wait for the next Major.

Fantastic couple of weeks indeed.

Tennis is the winner really. Pat Cash's ill-judged remarks notwithstanding.

Looking forward to the FO already. Will Nadal make it a perfect 10 at the French? Will Djoker return with a vengeance? Will Murray claim his maiden RG? Will Stan the Man reign supreme in what is arguably his best surface?

As much as i would love Fed - and who am i to count him off - i don't see him doing much here, even if fitness holds.

As to the women's? As unpredictable as ever really.

Great to see Fed win number 18 and also Serena winning number 23.

As much as I liked it, it would've been great to see a younger player win their first Grand Slam. It's a little worrying that no player stepped up to beat them even if they are playing well.
