A shaky start to the grass season. Hope to see him against Tipsy in R3

ridiculous stuff at the end.

But good volleys. :yeah:

And I am not sure he will be playing Tipsarevic... :scared:

seems like he didnt get used to the grass as quick as Federer and Rafa

Roko missed a SP on serve at 6-5 in the TB when he tried a useless dropshot

Tipsarevic is still playing and has lost the first set

You wish. Easier than easy. Practise day for Federer, Nadal, Novak...

Rafa = Fed Killa

A win is a win. Keep it up Nole.

yep. tipsy's down by 1 at the moment. I think the RG loss is still reverberating in Djok's head, slightly mitigated by Fed's even greater demise in the finals.

The worst thing that could have happened in this match is Novak losing the 2nd set...there was NO WAY he was gonna lose this match.

Nole fell down 3 times in the Tb and was down SPs not easy at all :p He's just lucky he was playing a mug;)

Novak played like shite. But that happens to him time to time. Come on Nole, get ready. Win Wimbledon!

Good effort,Karnausic.

Is there any bright prospect emerging in Croatia at the moment. I mean, all credit to Cilic, but I don't see him in the Top 20 anytime soon.

Mentally went out for dinner in the latter half of the second and forehand sloppy throughout. Definite room for improvement...

Did you watch? He fell obviously but do you really think he'd been worried. C'mon. He walked through the match. Roddick lost first set and still is 1st favorite.

Set less, set more...there's no diference.

Yes, Roko isn't a mug. Noone is.

As predicted Djoker experimenting a bit in here. Today the slice was main dish on the menu and a little bit of volleying as a dressing. Roko wasn't very good.

Course. They all do that. There's no any philosophy. But if someone wants to bashing.....voila, not me in the room.

WTA player could hit harder groundstrokes than Karanusic in the 2nd set TB

Djokovic has some trouble with both handling slices and slicing himself. He is not made for the green stuff.

The ending was so ridiculous I wouldn't be surprised Novak conceded the break and the minibreaks on purpose :) just to practice some of his "getting my neck out in the nick of time" stuff.

Solid first set for Nole but after that it was not anything special at all :(

Pushing contest. This Karanusic even bunted some balls that were 100% 'smashable' :haha:

Crystal ball told me he'd be on Federer's side of draw.

Ups, wrong topic.

Azarenka d. [2] Djokovic 2-6 7-6(4) 6-3

Davai Vika, you're the best.

Anyway, play better Novak. A win is a win, in any case.

The slices was one of the shots that gave him the most trouble in the USO 07..It was too low and couldn't generate the neccassary POWER of his hips,hence kept netting it off his BH.

He was having trouble with it mostly when he was in full choking mode and it's harder to generate your own pace when you're overly nervous. I don't think he has a particular problem with that shot :shrug:

His slice does suck though.

More than that.
