Baghdatis has the game, but his mind is almost as fragile as his aging body (compared to someone like, say, Hewitt, who's mind is iron tough, but his body is glass and his game suffers due to that).
The only Grand Slam that he can try to contend for is the Australian open. The support he gets here in Australia is amazing. He thrives off the chants from the crowd. The Greek/Cypriot crowd in Melbourne gives him a extra push.
Hoping Tomic does well. It's been a while since a male Australian player has lifter a grand slam trophy.
Stosur is a bit of a mystery. She seems to be mentally fragile and chokes at times. Hoping she can put her mind and ease because she really is a brilliant tennis player.
