Does Djoko look unstoppable?

He looks like he's added more muscle and is absolutely dominating right now. I fear for Roger.

Re: Does Djoko look unstoppable?

I haven't watched any of his games yet (I try not to unless absolutely necessary)...is he still playing like davydenko + 4 inches?

Re: Does Djoko look unstoppable?

How different is the view from the other side of the fence.

For those of us longing for Novak to win the whole thing, his lack of recent top class opposition since meltdown in Shanghai and his oh-so-easy first 3 matches, plus the weight of expectation facing him after last year's successes, all combine to give me collywobbles about tomorrow's matchup with Hewitt. Hardly dare to look beyond that...

But what do I know - I had money on Nalby...

For what it's worth, I still pick Fed for the whole thing and will be happy to see it happen. My admiration for him knows no bounds.

Re: Does Djoko look unstoppable?

A bit early to call, isn't it? He hasn't played any seasoned competitors just yet. Roger looked unstoppable against Hartfield and Santoro and almost got blindsided by a fighting Tipsarevic.

Hewitt should test him, though I'm not sure how much that marathon with Baggy will affect his chances.

I support: Roger Federer; Richard Gasquet; Radek Stepanek; Mario Ancic; Robin Haase; because they are cool.

I also support: The Killers; Death Cab for Cutie; My Chemical Romance; The Smashing Pumpkins; Radiohead; because they are pretty cool, as well.

Yes. Plus vastly superior serve.

Unstoppable? I don't know, who did he play that was really suppose to push him?

His match against Hewitt would be more telling, I think. Not that Hewitt is a contender, or anything.

Re: Does Djoko look unstoppable?

Ive been impressed with what ive seen from Nole BUT his draw has been a bit of a cakewalk thus far so anyone would look good!

Hewitt match will be the crucial one. I'd fancy him for the whole thing if he wins that one.

Go Andy!

That's where the 4 inches come in...Davydenko's serve isn't all that bad for his height.

He doesn't deserve that On the other side, I'm happy for Federer!

That's it. He LOOKS unstoppable, but in fact he isn'. We'll see it soon

You play only as good, as your opponent lets you to

Re: Does Djoko look unstoppable?

I can see Djokovic beating Federer and making the final this year. I don't know if he will lift the trophy though.

I hope Federer can actually still hold him at bay.

Then we get what could be the match of the tournament: Federer vs. Djokovic. In my view the winner of this semifinal will go on to become the Australian Open champ. Djokovic is 1-5 against Federer, including last year's U.S. Open final, where he lost in three tight sets. I'm guessing the peer-imitating Djokster is ready to take the next step, and he did beat Federer for the first time on his way to the title in Montreal last August. He's my pick to stop Federer's run of 10 consecutive major finals and win the title here.
