Marsland (JR # 124) def. Marko Djokovic 3-6 6-0 6-2

wasn't there hype that djoko jr. was better than his older bro?
disappointing result for him

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

actually, i just checked his recent results: http://www.itftennis.com/juniors/pla...ayer=100106647

then again, he is only 16 1/2

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world

Marko is ranked around 900 places lower than Marsland in the junior rankings.

Anyway, it's disappointing, but I really hope the experience is benefiting Marko.

I find it hard to get too disappointed about a loss for a player so young because their game is still being molded and developed. I'd hate to judge a player's future career by how they played at 16.

when Nole was 17, he had been a junior GS runner up.

Novak apparently said that the youngest of the three is the best (according to ESPN), but it's a bit too early to tell. I wouldn't get too excited about any results in either direction just yet.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

We have like 20 open threads dedicated to Djokovic right now. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

You do realise that Djokovic is ranked 1068th.

what annoyed me about the young Djoko kid was his cheering for Novak's points last night and making sure he was looking up at the screen to see himself, trained him well

what a family of Ego's

I actually heard his hero was the Captain of the U.S.S. Egoprise...Rumor has it, the Djoko-kid's battle cry: "Beam me up, Roggie"

Thanks for the gutsy run, Phillies!!! World Series Champs...2010!!!

I remember that Nicolas Lapentti many years ago said "My younger brother Giovanni is much more better than me". Time has verified this sentence - it was a total bullshit by Nico.

Safin said the same thing about his sister and she is ranked much higher than him now. Oh wait! That's because he sucks, nevermind.
