This was a good match overall and a bit of history (ended at 2258 BST) the latest ever finish at the Championships.

Djokovic played his A game in the 5th after Rochus went 2-0 up. Not a choke like Falla's.

unbiased analyst extraordinaire

The mugginess on display today has been at times simply astounding. Atrocious BP conversion by Oli and after he went up a break in the fifth he was outplayed, oh well.
Boy have things changed in two years. His camp were celebrating like he just won another slam!

How this sorry excuse of a top 3 player can MUG his way out of this with 50% 1st serves and 11 Df.s is beyond me. He belongs at the WTA tour!!

Nole's on court behaviour is abhorrent. And his box -

I don't care for Rochus, and don't understand why Nole has such issues with him.

this was the best opening day at wimbledon that i can recall

nole working on his sliding techniques on grass

What is the real game?
It is a game in which the heart is entertained,

It is the game you will win.

His celebrating is rather painful to watch.
