Basel QF: Djokovic survives against Wawrinka, 3-6 7-6 6-2

Awesome Nole, absolutely awesome! Having an offday for 1,5 set but keeps fighting and surviving. Wins the TB and after that he picked up his game. We saw Federer winning like this so many times, this is what being a contender is all about

Cool Re: Basel QF: Djokovic survives against Wawrinka, 3-6 7-6 6-2

I can't believe he gave a free point in a tie break, something cheater Federererer never does . He played absolutely great return to break back in the 2nd set at 3:4

Wawrinka was two points away from victory at *5:5 in the tie-break (but D'Joke was cheated by the linesman at one point in that tie-break). At least he usually plays competitive matches against the best players in the world.

Unbelievable "Nadalesque" win! I thought It was over at 6:4, 4:3 when Stan broke Novak. He played fantastic until the TB. Maybe he lost some confidence cause he never won any Tb against Novak. Why is he such a headcase at the end of his matches?

Great perseverance by Djokovic in this match. He did not focus well at the beginning of the match and Stan played great and served like a devil. Stan let his nerve got him after up a break vs Novak at 4-3 and donated the break back. He still had the chance to win the match but losing the TB in 2nd set finally the last straw and Djokovic cruised thru 3rd set.

That point at TB was such a shame and I thought it was over. Novak, why not challenge???

Re: Basel QF: Djokovic survives against Wawrinka, 3-6 7-6 6-2

Stani's outlook seemed very sunny halfway the match, being up a set and a break, playing amazing tennis so far.
At that point, however, Djoko decided he had done more than enough napping and immediately broke back. From that moment on you could see Stani's level diminish whereas Djoko came back to the level one should expect from a top player, taking the second set in the TB. From that moment on, Stani just went away. A rather 'Federesque' victory for Djokovic... or loss for Stani.
Well good try anyways Stani and congrats Djoko!

Really? Djokovic seemed to be very calm, I think he had this match under control even in that moment.

Re: Basel QF: Djokovic survives against Wawrinka, 3-6 7-6 6-2

Djoko's forehand is a bit of a defensive liability vs pace on courts this quick, Wawa exploited it well.

Wawa 3rd set though - I mean seriously, that was just embarrassing. Lose a narrow tiebreak, then just collapse and instantly give away a double break and the match. I was cheering him on till then, but it was a bit pathetic.
