Great win for Nole. Nice start to his tournament.

The top mens players are all looking pretty strong. His draw is looking really tough now after seeing how well Marat played.

Oh well, he can do it.

We were having dinner with the TV on when he was asked to do the impresonations, he tried to get out of it and explained someone told him his impersonations offended some players. My hubby and son both were confused why. Even my son has close to zero sense of humor still can't figure why his impersonation will offend anyone. So I explained to them that those players feel offended not really because of the impersonation, but because they are not happied they lost to him.

So he only impersonated Sharapova and emphasized she doesn't mind.

Re: Making some Thunder Down Under: AO Thread (Round 2 vs. Bolleli)

He was asked repeatedly to do impressions and each time he said, "No, I really can't, some people get offended." But after it seemed like the interviewer/crowd wouldn't let him leave the court without an impression, Nole just said, "Oh, okay."

It's tough being put on the spot. They had better not ask him to do any more

Yeah, I thought it was a little disrespectful to keep bugging him about it. I suppose because he's such an easygoing guy they figured he wouldn't mind. But he didn't even seem that into it; he didn't bother picking up a racquet or finishing the service motion.

at least he only did a Sharapova one.

To be honest I never liked the Rafa one

Anyway, it was kinda rude to insist on it after he said no already. It was a stupid situation!
