Impressive stuff from Novak

I don't know why everyone is so harsh on Harrison, it's not like any of these players ranked outside Top 10 have anything to do against Nole or the other Top 4.
There is really an abyss between these guys and the rest.

Great play champion

Now, you certainly gave Lendl something to think about

Re: AO R2: Djokovic bulldozes Harrison 6-1, 6-2, 6-3

Was a bit worried that Harrison could trouble Novak here, since he already played a lot of matches and this was only Novak's second match (except those exos), it is somewhat surprising that he was this powerless. If I'm not mistaken, Harrison never went higher than 40-30 on Nole's serve, and even that was rare. Probably many top 200 players would've offer more resistance.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

It is weak era, but it is nothing compared to 2-3 years from now when mugs like Harrison and other useless under-23 will replace retired players in the top 10.

A very polished performance from the World No.1. Tough to see anyone stopping him when he's playing like this. Harrison was slightly cold at the start but as the match went on, he played some great tennis too.

first of all, gotta say i like harrison


people is so harsh on him because he is called to be the future of tennis, potential top 10 player and maybe gs winner in the future. he is one of the best prospects right now really

so i expect a lot from him. guy made no progress at all this last 2 years. for a youngster, not improving at all in 2 years its awful, and he is not developing a weapon at all

he should try to change things asap if he doesnt want to retire with a career high ranking of 40 something

First set was over in exactly 20 minutes, Nole played very well of course, but Harrison deserves all the flak he gets.

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

I don't see anything special in Harrison, so far. He doesn't have the potential to be a top player, IMO.

Re: AO R2: Djokovic bulldozes Harrison 6-1, 6-2, 6-3

I agree with all the posters saying that Harrison appeared utterly powerless. But from the statistics his first served averaged 196 km/h, which was 6 km/h faster than the average first serve of Nole. Only a few returners can make a guy averaging close to 200 km/h look powerless.
