you think that too. I'm not crazy. Many things about him makes me think of marat: the way he goes to the net, the way he strokes the ball, his backhand,his legs (but this may be because of adidas socks and shoes) even his unforced errors.
congratulations to both players!I'm happy for Nole, he handled his nerves, the crowd pretty well. As tsonga said on French TV, Tsonga didn't lose the match, novak won it

same here, Jo make me thinks of Marat, and when Nole kissed the floor at the end, I remembered Marat at the Us open and then my bros said

-you can't stop thinking about him, huh? you see him everywhere

the same here, US Open 2000 .
and since the day I became safinated, my family has learned to pretend listening to me when i talk about marat. they know i'm the only one allowed to crticize him, especially when he's down.
but my father is even more safinated than me ...

I also remembered Us open 2000...

I was interested in watching the finals even if none of my fav was featured, but still I thought it was interesting to watch two new guys battling out for it.

I started by being objective and ended rooting for Tsonga. anyway, god win for nole: he is young and so solid, he seems to have a good career ahead of him.

Re: Marat "Down-under" , The Kooyong and AO thread

Nole played brilliantly, and Jo was a worthy runner-up! Cant wait to see him play more matches and move up the rankings!

If Nole hadn't of singled out the crowd for not supporting him in his semi-final, he would have received more support in the final.. when he said it in his post-match interview on friday i was like noooooooo!

Couldn't get my ass out of bed early enough so I only saw the end Congrats Nole! He showed great mental strength and didn't let the crowd distract him

Me too When my mom came in the room and saw Tsonga, she thought it was Marat at first

OMG, you girls said everything I wanted to say When Nole kissed the floor I got really melancholic and I thought he was about to climb up to his box like Marat did.

Same here I can relate to everything you said

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did.
