did not watch the match, but following the match report on FO website.

said nole still suffering from the allergies and was not all that convincing, serve issues still there, 3 aces/9 double faults, but he is through in straights, which is good.

keep going nole!!! , bad luck to nishikori.

Re: RG R2 Djokovic def. Nishikori 6-1 6-4 6-4

As I predicted, Kei gave Nole a hard fight, but right now in their careers Nole is a better version of Kei.

If Kei would have taken advantage of his opportunities in the 3rd set, match could have been much different.

Nole's serve is a legitimate issue, obviously, and one that I think is going to ultimately prove his downfall. Too many double faults, serve percentage average-adequate only, and too much mental instability. His natural talent can only take him so far. He needs to boost the game and mentality to match the talent, or he's going down.

It took him a lot of time, I hope Novak doesnt tire because he has to play tommorow too.

It wasn't.

Nole looked lethargic. He and Kei played similar games and many of their serve games went to 30 or deuce or break points, the difference was Nole took advantage of the opportunities and Kei didn't. But it certainly wasn't easy, he didn't serve very well. He's basically playing on instincts at this point IMO.

The match was over 2 1/2 hours. Not great for tomorrow and the rest of the tournament.

Shocker(not), can't believe anyone thought the result would be anything other than a Djokovic win. I have to say though, it doesn't look like he's feeling good out there, he seems to be working hard to win most points.

Yeah the match last quite long for a 3 setter, other 4 sets matches finished before this one.

Kei really fight hard and had a glimpse at maybe taking a set with help from Nole's many DFs

Too bad he couldn't break for 5-3 in the 3rd.

Re: RG R2 Djokovic def. Nishikori 6-1 6-4 6-4

Novak was just too solid. Most of the service games were going to deuce or 30 for both players. Even the first set was not one-sided as the score suggests. This surface is perfect for Novak, he can defend forever, and helps his strong transition game to attack, where he can hit some big/heavy shots. Just too strong in the end.

His serve was a piece of shit though.

Yep, and even scarier because he's got a brilliant attitude. No crying, and keeps fighting.
