RG R1: Djokovic def. Lapentti 6-3 3-1 ret.

Nico had a miss-step at the net and hurt his foot. Had to retire.
Nole looked in good shape though.

Roger Federer. Legend.

Coming from a Djokovic fan, that is hilarious stuff.

Back to the match, Djokovic was playing quite well considering the shit conditions.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Too bad Lapentti couldn't last long enough to make Fakervic retire.

Yay. Now Nole will be well-rested for his very winnable R2 match.

Kudos to Nico for hanging in for 6 games after it happened.

| Wins over 3+ of the Top 4. Players to reach all slam QFs+ in history. Hawkeye/Line Calls. QFs+ at Slams & Masters, but never Top 20.

Poor Lapentti

I hope Nole gets more court time in the 2nd round. He deals with the strong wind and the slippery clay situation well.

"If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same"

Believe in yourself, Novak.
That's all I ask of you.

2011 & 2015 US Open.
2011, 2014 & 2015 Wimbledon.
2008, 2011 - 2013, 2015 Australian Open.

Djokovic unlikely to drop a set before the final.

I'm not so sure,i think he have a tough qf against either Delpo or Tsonga and if he reach the seli he'll likely face Fed but it's still early he needs to play and win another 3 or 4 matches before any of that can happen
