Nole looked great much better than last year at this time....but these are still relative mugs but good for him to play this good and SliceAce is a mug

To put it in perspective, at this same stage of his career (11th slam entered) Djokovic had already made the semis of two slams, was about to make the final of the 12th, and win the 13th. Harrison still hasn't made it past the second round of a slam and it doesn't look likely to happen in the near future.

Harrison is he biggest overachiever in tennis - if it wasn't for mug era and countless WCs, he would never sniff TOP 100. Zero talent here folks

Well to be fair, apart from a group of players, it's too much for anyone to be compared to Djokovic. All I'm saying that while his peers(Tomic, Dimitrov, Raonic) has something that they can work on to take them to the top, Harrison pretty much has nothing. I don't know. Maybe he'll develop something. He has time, that's for sure.

Last year, Noval lost 10 games in his three first matches.

We never know with Djokovic, at Wimbledon, he looked in a stellar form but he played like shit against an average Federer in semi. Sure he look great, but i will wait until his quarter against Berdych.

Great improvement on Nole's FH. Looks a lot stronger now. Loved the pace of ball everytime he hits it.

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

Ryan doesn't get that many WC, he played a lot of qualifying last year too. Even this year he already got through qualifying twice. He's working for his ranking points.

But it's true he is not improving, his rallying is still unimpressive and powerless. His natural talent and touch call for an aggressive, forward moving game, but without a potent backhand his options are way too limited. He just ends up slicing and defending.

I couldn't watch the match because I was at work but Nole's serve stats were very impressive today. I agree that Harrison needs to develop weapons. He seems to have regressed in the last couple of years.
