The AO (Australian Open) and the Battle of the Wills?

The AO/OA?
I noticed that both Will Ferrell and Will Smith were guests this year of the Australian Open tennis tournament.
What is it with Os and As and Nets and Flix?
I'm not a Thelemite and I'm not suggesting anyone I mention in this post is either, but I've read a lot about Thelema and when I see the word "Will" I can't help but think that the Greek word (or one of them anyway) for will is Thelema.
"The word thelema is the English transliteration of the Koine Greek noun θέλημα (pronounced [θélɛ:ma]) "will", from the verb θέλω "to will, wish, want or purpose.""
"to will, wish, want or purpose."?
"The fundamental principle underlying Thelema, known as the "law of Thelema", is 
"Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Love is the law, love under will."
This phrase can be, and usually is, interpreted universally, having moral, mystical, and socio-political implications."
"There are, in Greek, two words for will, which are used, for example, in New Testament partly synonym: thelema and boule.
'Boule' means 'will', 'intention', 'counsel', 'project'
(i.e. a will with purpose).
Thelema is a rarely used in classical Greek.

There are very few documents, the earliest being Antiphon the Sophist (5th century BCE).
In antiquity it was beside the divine will which a man performs, just as much for the will of sexual desire.
The intention of the individual was less understood as an overall, generalized, ontological place wherever it was arranged."
The first time that I heard that Will Smith was in Australia was when he was raving on about a vegetarian meal he had in Sydney that was all over social media.
Which I found a handy tip, as I was planning another road trip, this time down to Adelaide passing through Sydney on the way and I had gone vegetarian over the last few months and was wondering where I was going to stop for my meals along the way.
I was actually reading an Instagram of Samara Weaving's at the time where she was asking her followers if there was anywhere good to eat in Sydney, as I was writing a post about Samara's latest movie at the time -
Three Signs and a GOODYEAR blimp?
I didn't know that Will was a vegetarian, or vegan until I did a search and found a post about a movie he starred in called 'Seven Pounds', which I hadn't watched before, but soon did on Netflix.
Apparently Will's son Jaden is a vegetarian, as well
Will Smith New Movie Is Seven Pounds of Vegetarian Goodies
"The movie starring Will Smith, about a man who dramatically changes the lives of seven people, has more vegetarian themes in 1 hour and 58 minutes than you’ll probably see at a granola bar serving hippie fest.
First there’s Ezra Turner, played by Woody Harrelson, who sells frozen steak over the phone, but doesn’t eat his own products.

Wonder if any real life meat purveyors follow this rule as well?
Then there’s Rosario Dawson’s character, Emily Posa, who’s not only a
vegetarian, but insists her dog be one as well.
Finally, there’s a scene where the word
“vegan” is prominently displayed on a hospital chalkboard.
Mere coincidence?
Subliminal veggie propaganda?"
I liked the movie I must confess.
"A man with a fateful secret embarks on an extraordinary journey of redemption by forever changing the lives of seven strangers."
On the subject of "seven" Channel Seven had the rights to televise the Australian Open also.
Then I watched Will in a movie called 'Collateral Beauty', and while we on the subject of vegetarianism in this post I was surprised that the 'Rotten Tomatoes' movie critics gave 'Collateral Beauty' only a 14% tomato rating.
I would agree more with the audience rating of the movie on the 'Rotten Tomatoes' site, as I didn't mind it at all ... and it was about angels, too.
"Retreating from life after a tragedy, a man questions the universe by writing to Love, Time and Death. Receiving unexpected answers, he begins to see how these things interlock and how even loss can reveal moments of meaning and beauty."
Will Ferrell stars as Rondell
"A young actor arrives in Hollywood in 1969 during a transitional time in the Industry."
Ironically with Hollywood going through a transitional time in the industry in 2018 this 
Will Ferrell/James Franco movie 'Zeroville' will be lucky to see the light of a cinema screen.
Maybe Will Ferrell will have more luck starring as a 100-year-old man, while he is a 50-year-old man in a movie based on bestselling author Jonas Jonasson's "The 100 Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared."?
Will is already halfway there, age wise.
Will Ferrell as Eric Jonrosh
"Fictional author and filmmaker, Eric Jonrosh, adapts his epic tale of a pianist-turned-detective investigating a murder in the 1950s underground jazz scene."
Game, Set and match at the AO.
But you think what you will about it all, because that's AOK by me;-)
