Toronto R3: [3] Djokovic def. Soderling 6-4, 6-4

Soderling was very sharp in his service games with many effective 1st serves, but on the flip side, too many double faults gave Djokovic some free points. Djokovic was able to employ the drop shot a few times, one of his favorites. And because of Soldering poor reaction time, movement, and anticipation, Djokovic's drop shot had a good success rate. Although Djokovic faced some break points, Solderling was unable to capitalize. Djokovic, however, did break Solderling once and went on to win the first set.

Djokovic was a little more relaxed in the 2nd set but you could tell that he wanted to break Solderling at 3-3. Despite his aggression, Solderling's sharp serving denied Djokovic any break opportunities. At 4-4, Djokovic's desire to break Solderling was crystal clear. He took his game up several notches and finally broke Solderling and then served for the match.

Nole, were you saving yourself for Murray?

Very good job. The way Djoke's playing, he's clearly the no. 1 favourite for the USO.

Well done Novak. You're reward is to rip Snaggletooth another one tomorrow.

Thanks for coming Robin.


"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."

Toad is useless when on the opposite side of the net stands Federer, Nadal or Djokovic. The Swede can be a tough opponent for them but at the end of the match he must be a loser.

Not a very good performance by Novak but he up a notch at 4-4 in 2nd set and got the job done.

Well done Djoker, mission accomplished, the bitter prick sent home. Now go and injure an eyelash please.

Djokovic is God.

I don't like Nadal.

Snaggletooth still has to get by Wawrinka and he'll need to play better than he did against ToJo, before he has to worry about being Djokoslapped
