AO R2: Djokovic def. Chiudinelli 3-6 6-1 6-1 6-3

Horrid first set from Nole, improved from there. Needs to up his ante.

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Nice from 'Cutienellie' in the first set. After that, no doubts - better player won.

Congrats Nole!

I only saw patches as I switched to Ferrer/Baghdatis a lot, but despite the clear scoreline after the first set, the win was not convincing in my view.

Very bad, wasted a bit too much energy, but it's good to have your bad match in the first rounds...

What a shitty performance from Nole today. Marco didn't do anything special today and still Djokovic needed 4 sets.
An even more dreadfull performance than Federer against Andreev 2 days ago...

Agree with you that Nole needs to up his game but he won't have to the next round as he is facing Istomin.

Marco can only take positive things from this match, if he can keep up with the level shown in the first set, he can make some noise around

But this was NID, they simply aren't in the same league

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Re: AO R2: Djokovic def. Chiudinelli 3-6 6-1 6-1 6-3

Probably ranks in the top 5 of Novak's worst matches.

9 double faults
46 winners against 61 unforced errors
33% 2nd serve pts won

His opponent wasn't good enough to beat a Novak that was in such a poor form.

Passive start from Djokovic. I blame that horrific outfit Tacchini has him in.

He ended the year so well and now he's starting it horridly.

Much closer then the scoreline showed, Chiudinelli only converted 3/17 BP's.

If Chiu broke at 1-0 in the second set to go up 2-0 it could have been a different game!

I wouldn't care too much about Nole's performance in early rounds. He can lift up his game when required.

Re: AO R2: Djokovic def. Chiudinelli 3-6 6-1 6-1 6-3

i was 16,chiudinelli was 20,we played some exo tournament in hanover(he was the oldest one)'n nobody liked this arrogant swiss-off court.he thought he's stud(most of germans,austrians 'n swiss players were there.super timing for med timeout(ad-40).fairness
back than he was "injured" all the time just like today 'n he pissed between the sets just like today.
