AO R3: (3)Djokovic def. Istomin 6-1, 6-1, 6-2

Only dropped 2 games in the 3rd set because he was goofing around (was up 5-0 when Istomin served to hang around). Probably bored. This was criminally easy.

7 double faults
29 winners against 25 UEs.
Made 59% of 1st serves

Expected a better performance from Istomin after his early round heroics.

Tankjob with a capital T for Istomin
Who forced this clown to come play tennis if he doesn't really want to?

Both men battled hard but Nole's mental toughness prevailed at the end.

Well, sir, it's this rug I have. It really tied the room together.

Probably the worst day session of a grand slam ever. Forced to watch WTA and even those matches were bad...

What makes it funnier is that this session was sold out a week ago.

I think they should let the players know before the match next time and penalize them accordingly.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Istomin was fucking horrendous. The scoreline would suggest that Djokovic played a blinder.

He didn't.

Djokovic was solid and unspectacular.


Onwards and upwards.

This was the first time I watch Istomin play. Is this his average game? Cause if it is, then this guy's a joke.

Nole has to work on Break Point conversions. 9/14 is not going to get the job done against Kubot.

Nole played solid.

Istomin wasn't very good.

A win's a win.

I watched Istomin beat Nico Lapentti at the USO 09. He played well in that match but generally, I think he is a mug.
