Sky and Eurosport, I think?

Bit stink for those that don't have sky but I'm glad we do have it. Doesn't always cover tennis, so make the most of the times when it does.

On sky here. Who has it in uk?

Yes, the BBC no longer have the rights to show any of the AO, not even the final, due to the cutbacks they had to make in their sports' budget, so Eurosport grabbed it, which is great for me because I don't have Sky.

Excellent win for Dan though!  yay  yay

Fantastic win for Dan, the first time that Tomic has lost a match in Melbourne which he started off as the bookies favourite.

Not just a great win for Dan but I have to admit I had no idea he played such scintillating tennis.  I hadn't really planned to watch it properly but he was so good that I was watching almost as closely as I watch one of Andy's matches.  For someone so short he sure packs a punch,  And Petchy said his serve motion is perfect and his serve is Fed-like (which whatever you think of Fed is quite a compliment).

I wish I had watched it all, but getting up at 6:30am is the middle of the night to me, so I just confined myself to Andy's match!  blush

Enjoyed the highlights though.  Good to see Dan coming up to the net a lot, and very well done to him for keeping his nerve in the two tie-breaks.  I'd agree with Petch about his serve too - a pleasure to watch.

Nice article in The Telegraph about how emotional Dan was at the end, dedicating his win to his late coach of five years Julien Hoferlin who died last year from a brain tumour.  Also I bet Nike are now regretting ditching him during the off-season, so Dan was left to buy his own shirts in Melbourne, although Uniqlo, the high-street chain he bought them from, have now come to his rescue.   Hopefully he'll find another sponsor soon from the offers he's received - http://www.telegraph.co.uk/tennis/2017/01/20/dan-evans-salutes-former-coach-julien-hoferlin-reaching-australian/

Scheduled for 4.30pm on Hisense. 6.30pm for me, 5.30am UK. Should start while Andy is still playing given he's 3rd up on Rod Laver..

Such a shame Dan lost, but it was pretty much expected against Tsonga.  I hope he can take comfort from the fact that he's done himself proud here.  He's now gone up to #45 in the rankings, two place above Kyle, which makes him Britain's #2.

Dan was due to play Montpellier this week, but has withdrawn after the DC. He'll play in Dubai then Delray Beach, before IW.

Thought he might withdraw because he had very little time to rest after the AO.

Dan is in Dubai this week, faces Dustin Brown in R1, and is playing doubles with Gilles Muller - they face Andy and Nenad in R1.

Dan now seems to have some sort of sponsorship deal with ProDirect Tennis and may be wearing assorted brands of kit with PDT logos on his shirts and shoes.

I'm very glad to hear that Dan has at last got another sponsor, even if it's only on a temporary basis to see how things go.  Too bad if Nike are now regretting their decision to drop him.
