Re: Sculpting a victory: A Pygmalion Slogan for the Australian Open! F v Murray

Someone pointed out on Twitter, that he got broken 8 times through 7 matches here. 7 in R4, 1 in QF. I concur that holding every serve game vs Murray is huge. Plus, this is his 11 consecutive wins over Top 8 players. Started from Beijing final, I think. (2 in Shanghai, 5 in London and 3 in Melbourn)

We all know by now, yolita makes way too much sense for GM. But she just pointed out an awesome fact:

This makes me hours after the match ended.

Re: Sculpting a victory: A Pygmalion Slogan for the Australian Open! F v Murray

All I asked in the beginning of the year was AO + MC + RG + Cinci + WTF (just to end the year in style and reassure the #1)

AO check, 4 more to go.

Q. What are your goals for the rest of the season? Is the French Open a priority for you now?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Priority for me now is to enjoy this victory. In life, you know, you don't get many of the opportunities to win Grand Slams. As a tennis player, that's a pinnacle of the ambitions and of the success.
So I try to enjoy it for few days with the people I love the most, family, friends, and team.
why I love you

Q. I also heard from some ballkids, they said you are always humor. I notice you said hello to Jie Zheng in Chinese in the press conference, too. I want to know about your philosophy in life for humor?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: It's tough to find a rational answer for that question.
But the only thing I can say is I try to enjoy what I do and every moment of the life that I have is a blessing.
There is so many athletes, professional tennis players around the world and it's such a global sport, they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don't succeed in the end. I'm fortunate to have this opportunity and to succeed.
I mean, what else can you do but to be happy and try to, you know, bring that joy to the other people around, especially in the tournaments. Everybody has bad days. I'm not always funny or laughing. It's normal. But generally I'm aware of the fact that it's an incredible trip for me, you know, being a professional tennis player.
I don't know if you're informed or not. I got the permission to leave tonight actually very early in the morning, not tomorrow. So I'm very sorry, and I apologize for not talking to you furthermore tomorrow.
The main reason for that is because I want to get to Europe as quick as possible so I can be ready for the Davis Cup tie. I hope I find your understanding for that.
In the end, there is a little tradition that we try to initiate in World Tour Finals in London, the end of the year, the last press conference, gave chocolate to all the people who were in the press.
I want to start the year with the same thing, if you allow me.
Let's keep it sweet.
He gave chocolates again in the press conference

I don't like him and I'm not a fan, but I'm not delusional.
exactly.
it is bloody hard to be top 10 in knitting or collecting handkerchiefs, let alone in any sport with a global following.
i reckon most of the haters have never trained any sport competitively, let alone picked up a racquet.
and honestly, tennis players behave much better than athletes in other sports. even federer, although i am sure you will not readily accept it.
