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."

He started playing well towards the end of the match. He's moving forward a little, but still awkward movement on the grass. He spoke to Rogi after Rogi's match. Luvely

Djokovic couldn't take the massive overheads assault in the 2nd set, but much expected, Berrer looked like a dead man by the third set till the inevitable end.

He did?

Did Roger answer him or was it a monologue?

Nole.. Strange match.

I think it was a typical locker room conversation. He asked Roger about the court and Roger tells him the grass feels great.

I think they are not bestfriends but not enemies either. I also believed they respect each other.

Djokovic looked very vulnerable today. When his "I am the next GOAT" aura that most players have bought into is gone, he will start dropping in the rankings.

You're so right. The only thing is that won't happen in the next 3 years (at least).

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.

Re: Djokovic defeats Berrer 7:5 2:6 6:3 6:0

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.

That second set has a lot to do with Djokovic's youngest brother betting. Novak, Novak.

I don't like Nadal.
