Madrid QF: (2) Djokovic def (6) Nishikori W/O

What a joke. Fakervic's luck is out of this world.

Won't matter, he will be roasted regardless of his opponent in the next round. He has no chance against Nadal in the form and he's already been roasted by Goffin earlier in the year.

Kei is probably out of Rome too and maybe even RG. Massive rankings slide now... Pity he looked semi decent but perhaps holding back. wrist injuries are always a ticking time bomb.

Re: Madrid QF: Djokovic d. Nishikori WALKOVER

Well, that's unfortunate for Kei. As for Novak, it's good that he's in the semi but I'm not sure he's ready for good Nadal on clay - match against Nishikori would be a test for him. Anyway let's see how Nadal plays today.

DJOKOVIC = LEGEND

Get well soon Kei.
I kinda like it this way, healthy Kei would probably beat Nole in this form and we wouldn't get Nadal - Djokovic clash. Hopefully, Nole finds his motivation once he sees Rafa on the other side of the net.

Well, everybody is waiting for a Djokodal and we are just one match away from it now. Long time coming.

Re: Madrid QF: Djokovic d. Nishikori WALKOVER

Nishikori was intimidated before even playing. What a laugh.

Annoying, because Djoko needs all the practice he can get. He would never lose to Nishikori, but would play a great practice match so it's a shame that Novak missed that opportunity as it leaves him with some rust to clear off.

Should have opted out and let Ferrer have this spot, but he was selfish.

Probably heard Djokovic started eating fish again and panicked.

This seriusly sucks, it would have been a good opportunity to stop the losing streak against Novak.

Re: Madrid QF: Djokovic d. Nishikori WALKOVER

Not that surprising. A lot of his shots felt forced this tournament, especially the serve. He wasn't playing with fluidity or confidence, he semi-ballbashed his way past Diego and Ferrer but it's not sustainable. Hopefully he doesn't come back until he's 100%, but given his history I doubt he has the patience to wait. Might wanna grab some cheap points in the clay season (which he can do even when not fully fit) and then rest during the grass season.

Re: Madrid QF: Djokovic d. Nishikori WALKOVER

It's so annoying.

Djokovic and Nishikori would have played baseline tennis for 2.5 hours which would have been invaluable practice for Novak right before Nadal.

Now he's sabotaged in a way. Frustrating.
