Good on Novak for finally waking up after losing that second set and taking care of business.
"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
Typical Novak 1st round match. Underestimated opponent a bit, trying to save energy, didn't work, gear up and voila. What did I tell you about b? Perfect sign what is all about. And you already know all signs.
Berrer (not)played the same game from start to end.
'Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.'
Djokovic was using the first two sets as serve and volley practice a little bit. Once that cost him the second set, he went back to basics. It was more than enough to win without being too tiring. Good enough for the first round.
