Julia Gillard to star in a movie?

If you’re sick of hearing about Julia Gillard getting caught up in a ‘riot’ last week, look away now.

If not, then you will enjoy knowing that the makers of her infamous missing shoe are planning on releasing a new version to capitalise on the mayhem it has caused, appropriately named ‘The Julia’. Word on the street is that the shoe has been in high demand, which is why rumours are circulating that Disney is planning to remake one of their all-time classics, only this time it will be called ‘Gingerella’.

Tomas Berdych is very popular in Spain

Tomas Berdych moved into the Quarter finals of the Australian Open with a 4-6 7-6 7-6 7-6 win Over Spanish 10th seed Nicolas Almagro, Berdych now faces Almagro’s countryman and World Number 2 Rafa Nadal in the last eight. Berdych goes into the quarter final knowing he’ll have about ten fans in the crowd (those young Aussies who spell out Berdych on their chests) after he dramatically refused to shake Almagro’s hand after the game.

Of course, Berdych also has history with Rafa!

All of which means we have plenty to look forward to tomorrow night – the voiceometer might have to come out to gauge the boos.

1-2-3-4.. Four Broken Racquets

Marcos Baghdatis proudly uses the Tecnifibre 315 SpeedFlex racquet during his matches. The racquet boasts solid power and an incredibly forgiving feel. Obviously Marcos had this in mind when he went to test the power and feel of the racquet against the Plexicushion surface at Melbourne Park.

Not only did the racquet fail the first test – no wrapping straight onto the surface, it also failed to provide the ‘incredibly forgiving feel’ when slammed onto the ground still in the plastic cover.

This ranks pretty high in the pantheon of tennis tantrums however Marcos has a way to go to pass the best the US had to offer.

John McEnroe

And Jeff Tarango
