Monte Carlo R2: Djokovic def Gaudio 6-1 3-6 6-1

After a dominant first set, Novak seemed to lose his brain for the second. Gaudio took advantage of that and his play improved, but luckily Novak refocused to take the third.



Next is Benneteau/Ferrer.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Djokovic def Gaudio 6:1 3:6 6:1

Gaudio would have won if he continued to play like he did in the 2nd set.

The game is still there, but he simply doesn't have brains and fitness to compete at this level right now.

He's going to drop in the rankings a lot and I think playing a challenger would do wonders for him right now.

About Djoko, he was able to play worse than Federer yesterday, especially in the 2nd set. Play like that against Ferrer and bye bye!

PORTUGUESE ARMADA!!!

Sloppy from Nole at times in that second and at times in the third sets when trying to close it out.

But still had far too much for Gaudio when he wasn't mentally grinding the gears.

Nice comeback from Gaudio in the second set, but it soon became clear that he couldn't keep it up.

Two breadsticks by Nole... impressive, even if he wasn't playing as well as I hoped/feared. Feds, watch your back!

Re: Monte Carlo R2: Djokovic def Gaudio 6-1 3-6 6-1

Djokovic main problem was serv in that second set. He just couldnt serve well and it made him angry...that lead him to insane number of unforced errors...which lead to even worse serv again. When he calmed down everything was ok, but this was very poor performance by him indeed.
Since this is his first match on clay this year I uderstand he cant play some incredible tennis yet, but I hope he will improve as tournament goes on

Seems like a lot of the big boys are having bouts of clayitis at the moment.

Way to self-destruct in the third set Gaudio . Still, good that he won a set. Overall good match from Nole, too many ues in the second set but still pretty good.

Bravo Nole

Bad 2. set, in the first game of third set on 30-40 Nole said loudly " I'm not playing anything, I dont feel the ball, fuck", then he serve ace 211km/h and that is a turning point of the match...
He can play better but it's the first match on clay!
