Did anyone hear Djokovic post match interview

That was one of the funniest things i've ever heard. Novak was saying he was in control of the match and could of won.

Re: Did anyone hear Djokovic post match interview

I've read it and I was wondering if he took a blow to the head at some point because, with respect, at no stage was he in control.

In Rafa's interview they asked him about that and he seemed quite surprised - he answered fairly diplomatically but you could tell by the answer that we though Djoko was talking out of his arse a bit.

Re: Did anyone hear Djokovic post match interview

He was in control of that match just like Xristos is in control of most of his one sided affairs.

Re: Did anyone hear Djokovic post match interview

He said the same 'I was in control' thing after the match in MC against roger but at least there he won a set. Today his negative body language on court, and..well the score totally contradicts that. Strange

Re: Did anyone hear Djokovic post match interview

I think if Novak said "If I was in a better physical condition, I think I would've stood a chance in this match" or smthg of that sort, it would've been more realistic. However I completely agree with him on this:

"I don't need. I don't need. I realized today that I don't need to play anything special, you know. I don't need to play anything special. Everybody thinks, you know, Nadal. For sure he's the best on this surface, but he's not unbeatable."

&

"I have to say that even though that he's the best and everybody thinks that he's unbeatable, I say he's not unbeatable. He's beatable, you know."

Re: Did anyone hear Djokovic post match interview

Theoretically, all of Nadal's opponents are in control of their destiny. If you don't make 50 ufes, then you win. Easier said than done.

Why is it that everyone is coming out and attacking this kid ? Roger has dominated for years, receiving nothing but kind wishes and compliments from his opponents. We're talking about a guy that's absolutely ruthless on court, yet is admired and respected by his adversaries.

Nadal's game is a joke, everyone's coming out of the woodworks and smacking this kid around for playing garbage tennis. Just keep retrieving the ball and shouting "Vamos!", one of these days Nadal is gonna take a fall and never get up from it.

Enjoy it while you have it. What garbage to watch. Period. Brutto.

We have guys like

Andre Agassi
Marat Safin
Rod Laver
and plenty of others, let's not include all of Nadal's opponents whom also have received their fair share of abuse from Roger, yet when push comes to shove are willing to concede that Mr. Federer is superior.

One thing remains constant ....

" He's only beating Roger because of the lefty thing "
" He's not in control blah blah, Roger choked "
" Roger is the best, he'll figure him out "

If Roger makes the Final and beats Nadal on Sunday, Nadal's career is over. End of story. He can't play for shit on hard courts or grass, if Roger takes away the only thing you have ... retire and save your body.

How long is it going to take for all players to understand this simple truth - the myth I was speaking about... Still the best, yes, unplayable - no way! He was as lucky as skillfull to make this streak.

Re: Did anyone hear Djokovic post match interview

He said the same thing after his match against Roger and now today he says it against Nadal....... Next time either one of these guys play Djokovic, I think he'll be eating bagels.

That's because he was hypnotized by Djokovic bouncing the tennis ball

If anything, Nadal's matches against PHM and Hewitt have proven that he's not as almighty as the media makes out of him. I'm not trying to degrade his achievements, or talk smack about him, but fact remains that he isn't the most verstile player out there, and I just don't like it when things are blown out of proportion. Nadal's streak will end one day because more and more players are figuring out how to beat him, and are getting the experience needed to do so.

Re: Did anyone hear Djokovic post match interview

I just saw it on ESPN2 and for once I'm actually totally going to agree with what Brad Gilbert said. Completely dellusional.

nadal | roddick | tsonga | verdasco | gasquet | kiefer

Re: Did anyone hear Djokovic post match interview

Rafa's response- in Rafa-English:

Quote:
Q. Djokovic told us he felt he had the match under control till his back problems. Do you agree with that? >

RAFAEL NADAL: Oh, yes (smiling).

I don't know. If he say that, it's okay. I don't need to answer that, no? But he had the problem in the first game or what? Because I don't remember, no. I have break, break, all time up in the score, no?

I like a lot of players.
