It was interesting to see both Williams' sisters bounced out of a Grand Slam tournament so early. It makes me wonder if they've lost their edge on the women's circuit. On the flip side, Martina Hingis seems to have made a respectable comeback, and I look forward to her becoming a force to reckon with... again.

Three straight Slams for Federer with Aussie Open title

The top-ranked Federer fulfilled overwhelming expectations by beating unlikely finalist Marcos Baghdatis 5-7, 7-5, 6-0, 6-2 in Sunday's final to claim his seventh Grand Slam title and third in succession


Federer is looking to sweep the Grand Slams by winning his first French Open this year. He has also reached halfway to Sampras' record 14 Grand Slam wins. Federer is definitely the most dominating player on the men's circuit right now.

It seems to me that Federer hit the scene quickly and has just been dominating it every since. I see him as the player to beat this year, again, and see him taking the French Open this year for his first. Being that he is so young, if no injuries occur, he is going to take more 'slams' that Sampres did, and much earlier if I might say.

French Open to offer equal payouts for men, women

QUOTE
PARIS -- The French Open will offer equal prize money to the men's and women's champions for the first time.

The decision leaves Wimbledon as the only one of the four Grand Slam tournaments which still pays the men's winner more than the women's champion. The U.S. and Australian Opens have offered equal prize money for years

I have to say I completely agree with this. In most sports, the men's version is usually a lot more competitive, but in tennis, I honestly believe some of the women could easily beat some of the men on the professional circuit. What are your views on this?

To be honest, I don't think any of the top women could bet a top 100 male player. But both men and women should be entitled to equal prize money. It's sad that women receive so much less prize money in sport. They are professional athletes who put in just as much time and effort.

And in some sports like tennis, the women are just as exciting to watch. Golf is another example where women should be paid closer to men.

Remember when Venus Williams dominated the women's circuit? Today, news about her is when she is able to win a tennis match in more than 3 months.

Venus Williams won her first match since being out nearly four months with an injury, beating Polish teenager Urszula Radwanska 6-3, 6-3 Wednesday in the opening round of the J&S Cup.

In her defense, she was nursing an injury most of that time. Little sister Serena is also nursing a knee injury that could have her missing both the French Open and Wimbledon.
