I can't believe I stayed up till 5.00am to see such a poor display by Jérémy It could have been such a great match.

Novak did what he had to do...let Chardy making Ues and convert break points

Chardy disappeared after the 1st set.

Nole played very well, much better than I have seen him so far this year. Can't see anyone troubling him till the QFs. And even then I expect him to get through easily.

Still. I live in hope.

Maybe after years of therapy.

If I do love him, I have buried the feelings well.

Best match of the season from Novak. Serve, move, consistency through out the match (except serving for the match) are all better. But I need to see a few more matches like this before I will say he's back.

The match was pretty tight in the first set but after Novak won the 1st, he came out on fire and won 9 straight games. He served for the match and was finally broken and got a little wild in the shot making.

71% first serve
62% won on 2nd serve
100% in break points (6/6)
33 winners/17 UEs (+16)

Re: AO R2 - Djokovic def. Chardy: 7-5, 6-1, 6-3

As the cliche goes, Chardy's belief deserted him after the first set, but those initial twelve games were played in a very competitive spirit. Djokovic roared in Chardy's face when he'd secured the 7-5, knowing he'd dodged a bullet, and even though the Frenchman fell off in the next two sets Djokovic was pretty exceptional. His anticipation was something special, and the problems he seemed to be having with the racket early on soon dissipated in a blaze of almost perfect baseline tennis, taking him to 7-5 6-1 5-1. A little concentration lapse from Djoko ensured the match went on longer than it should have, but this was a good test for him that he passed with flying colours. He looked every bit the title contender some of us knew he would be before the tournament started. All he needed was a bit of a recharge in the off-season; his problems in the later stages of 2008 have, I suspect, overly influenced the bookies' longer odds on him.

During the last several months I almost forgot Novak ever had this "This Court Is Mine And Today I'm Not Into Being Hospitable" mode in him. And I hope THIS performance of his is a sign of good things coming in the following days. Bravo, dečko
