Djokovic def. Fish 6-2 5-7 6-3 to win Indian Wells

Indian Wells 2008 was just great for You anyway , Mardy

Mardy was 2-4* and *4-5 0-30 down in 2nd set, but he came back and won 7-5.

In 1st game of final set, Nole was *0-40 down, but saved all 3 bps with 3 aces. Then he broke Fish to 15 and this break was the key to win final set. We had just 1 break in 3rd set and it was enough to win.

Re: Djokovic def. Fish 6-2 5-7 6-3 to win Indian Wells

Well that was a compelling final. Exciting, scintillating, masterclass that was.

I knew when Fish couldn't convert a single bp in the first game of the 3rd set that he would lose. Ugh. Fire of a thousand suns...

And I really want to knock the hell out of Justin Gimelstob's stupid ass. When he wasn't being a total Homer, he was going on and on about Djokabitch being the best thing to ever happen to tennis. Dude is on crack. He'll probably be calling Miami as well, and that's on my coast, so I might just fly down there and do it. If I hear him mention "positive errors" and/or "good errors" one more time...ugh! Such a dumbass.

This tournament certainly went out with a whisper.

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.

Re: Djokovic def. Fish 6-2 5-7 6-3 to win Indian Wells

Ehh, Fishy... should have broken Djoko @ the 1st game on 3rd set. But have to give credit for Djoko's strong guts, when he came up with 3 aces to save 3 BP from 0/40.

Still great achievement for Fish. Coming back from 2:4 in 2nd set to win it 7:5 was some super effort Shame he couldn't finish this great run with a victory. I somehow doubt he will have many more chances of winning such high level tournaments.

Congrats to Djokovic, of course. A well deserved winner of IW!

Re: Djokovic def. Fish 6-2 5-7 6-3 to win Indian Wells

Mardy had 40/0* in the first game of the 3rd set. Nole served 3 aces
This sums it up perfectly. It was competitive, but clearly better one won

Ugly match. D'Joke is too solid for inconsistent Fish's game.

Nole

Mardy, well done, keep it up

Justin - yes, he will be calling Miami haters. Enjoy!

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.

Horrible performance!

Thank God he won though, now holds Indian Wells and Miami.

Time to defend Miami, this is good preparation.

AJDE!

Congrats to Djoko for a well-deserved victory, and to Fish as well for a truly AMAZING performance here.

That's all, I suppose...

Great fight from the Fish and unbeliavable tournament from him.

As for Djokovic, well he's the best player in the world on hardcourts now, certainly the results show as much. Well done to him and this perhaps could've been a more routine victory but any way to get the W is good enough and he showed what he's all about with those aces at the start of the 3rd set.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Good effort for Mardy. Hope he wins a Masters one day - sure he can after a superb week.
