Re: Post AO Season Thread 2009

I was afraid after the second set but he managed to hold on greatly
Can't wait for the Novak match!
The challenge-and-play with kids in the end is getting duller and duller : Jo had to play with a tissue over his left eye At least it's better than yesterday where Simon had to play with his right leg and hand tied.

Re: Post AO Season Thread 2009

Novak just called Jo "an undoubtedly top five player, and what forbade him to get there is only his injuries"
He's also very cute when he tries to speak French

Re: Post AO Season Thread 2009

It was a strange but a good match yesterday. Aweful tie break but the rest of his game is looking really good for the first time this season. Confirming it all tomorrow with a hell of a match against Djoko is all we need now. He seemed extremely determined in the post match interview anyway.

We can expect a great match today !

Another fabulous TB to close it out in straights
His BH has become a major weapon

Re: Post AO Season Thread 2009

What a match ! I love it when he turns on the "invicible mode" like in the TB.
Jo is now Nole's official bête noire...

Re: Post AO Season Thread 2009

Probably his best match for this year, nothing else to say

A good sign for the next davis cup tie and something really good to look for in the next tournies.

Re: Post AO Season Thread 2009

here's what Nole said after the match

"There is no reason for me to be depressed. It may be the fourth time he has beaten me, our encounters have always been tight, even in the Australian Open final," he said.
"If he does not get injured, he will reach the top five. He has an incredible self-confidence, as we witnessed on that game at 5-4 in the first set. In the final, whoever his opponent, he will be the favourite."
