Tsonga may be the name on everyone's lips today after the 20-year-old

Frenchman pulled off a stunning upset over Nadal, but what I'm

concerned about from the latest round of the Australian Open is this

little thing called the Player Challenge.



I was watching the remarkable rally of Ivanovic vs. Hantuchova when in

the third set Ivanovic stopped play to request a player challenge

They are definitely coming back - I just got invited to a mustache party in a couple of weeks - i'm supposed to be growing one but I'm not very good at it.
