Halle R2: Djokovic bts Serra 5-7 7-5 6-1

I honestly couldn't believe what was happening in the first set and a bit. Dismal performance from Djoko. To give him his due, though, Serra was playing suprisingly well. Then at 5-7 2-5 0-40 down, Nole somehow comes back, saves 5 MPs, wins the next 5 games to take the 2nd set, then runs away with the third.

Nole plays awful, stands behind the baseling 5 meters , he is afraid of playing. Serra gave him the game. He seems very disturbed right now

mugs match of the highest order, Djokovic playing clay court tennis on grass is absolutely horrendous, no matter how many match points Serra had the winner was never in doubt, but Djokovic didn't deserve to win the match and would have lost it if he played any better player than Serra today.

I predict a Kiefer win should he make it through.

Such a great effort from Nole to win this match after the disappointment of RG

I'm very proud of you Nole

Djokovic raised his game when facing elimination, saved 3 MPs and Serra cracked afterward.

He will have tough time winning his next match with the way he has been playing though.

Re: Halle R2: Djokovic bts Serra 5-7 7-5 6-1

Djoker WTF? I mean, he was playing HIDEOUSLY in this match, the only reason he didn't lose was because Serra choked in an spectacular way

Dude, keep playing like this and you'll be out of the top 5 in no time, not to mention get a spanking at Wimbledon

Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos
