So it's finally on here (because the X games is soo much more important :o). And I really tried to stay away from MTF so I couldn't see the result, but I couldn't help it. I wasn't so surprised with the win, what shocked me was the scoreline. That was a beating :eek:

Or it would be nice if MTF would have the application like on Facebook where you could just send drinks to people and maybe see them in their User CP :lol:

That's a very good point. Instead of giving goodrepps we could offer drinks. And instead of giving badrepps we could also offer drinks and say "get drunk and shut up". :lol:

Hope you did, I just saw it and it was amazing :worship: :worship:

The first 5 games were an exhibition of how to play tennis, given by Nole. And he fought so hard in the second set.

Djokovic looked terrific! There were a few times he got away from his brilliant first strike tennis he played in the first set. I'm really happy to see him playing well again.

Naturally, it's a bittersweet win for me because it was against Nadal, but tomorrow, I'll be able to cheer for him whole heartedly.

:hug: :hug: :hug: to all the die hard Djokovic fans who must be thrilled to their toes, not only with the win, but with how Djokovic played!

I have no real plans tomorrow, on this vacation my family always spends lots of time relaxing. That translates to lots of tennis for me! And with 14 days of beach I can cut one short (tomorrow) for two of my favorites, no?

Oh, and on another note, I'm feeling fully able to enjoy Nole again. In the beginning of the year there were some slight things that were rubbing me the wrong way, but I think his little "dip" in the past few tournaments has mellowed him a bit - or maybe I'm just crazy. But something about how the commentators were so for Nadal tonight and seeing Nole play as amazingly as he did and look as dorky-adorable as he did in that outfit really made me appreciate him all over again :D

Rafa and Nole have together won 5 of 6 Masters Series events this year. :o #4 Davydenko won the other one.

Hopefully after tomorrow it will be 6 of 7... quite a feat.

but-it's-ok

I am soooo excited,a brilliant start to my Sunday:banana: Thank you Nole:worship::hug::hug:

And well,good luck for the final Nole:hug:

08-03-2008, 07:26 AM
I stayed away from the computer and patiently waited for the match on ESPN but Nole's performance worth all the wait.

There are soooo many happy campers here. :lol:

It will be difficult against Murray tomorrow. Andy is fresh and full of confidence. But Nole is back to playing aggressive tennis and his serve is back, which will help him in important points. And of course, his forehand is smoking. But as long as he maintains his level of play tomorrow, I like his chance.

Morning!

For those of you with Sky it's repeated at 11:30am on Sky 2 (well unless they only show Murrray's match of course)

Still can't get over how totally brilliant the first set was. And remember he played like that in the first set in Hamburg so he can do it on clay, only of course Rafa stormed back and caught him.

Grrr - why can't he be playing Fed today

I already have the timer set on the DVD :) I was too scared to record it last night :)

And as I didn't have a drink with you guys last night - is it too early for me to have one now? Just a very large gin and tonic with ice and lemon for me :)

:wavey: Not really - no :awww: Thanks for asking. I guess it's just going to be one of those colds, which start with a sore throat for a day or so, - and then turns into a cold :sad:

But- don't worry - Nole won so I can live with it :) And it means I can only squeak at his matches and not scream - which may please my poor long-suffering neighbours tonight :lol: How are you feeling? Still ecstatic?

Yay Nole :worship:

I always feel like I'm having a heart attack when I'm watching his game and rooting for him. But I love that feeling and will love it for so many years to come. :)

I like Andy and him facing against Novak is a little bit hard for me. But I know how to set my priorities straight and that's by rooting ONLY for Novak ;). I'm sure this will be a great game between these two, I hope they can maintain their level of play, they played today against their opponents.

That said, go for the win Novak..

Hi Raine :wavey: Yes- I love the feeling too - it's like a huge adrenalin rush to see your player perform like that :)

Herdwick -I'm sure Belco's tennis3 site will have one :) I'm just hoping Sky show the whole of that 1st set this morning for my ready and waiting DVD :)

Herdwick
08-03-2008, 11:10 AM
Belco's site is my first port of call and it does but currently with 1 S and 42 L so guess I'll have to be patient.

I had that adrenalin rush when Manchester United won in the Champions League (and when David Cook won in the same day), even if I haven't slept yet I wasn't tired at all. ;)

It will be shown live at 3 am though. Well, it's worth the sacrifice anyway especially if he'll win. I'll be collecting from him soon :devil: (hahaha I wish :angel:)

Yes but if he could cope with SF in AUS Open, after Nadal in IW...I am sure he can be calm enough for tonight. I watched Murray-Karlovic early in the morning. Murray play nothing special. Ans as someone said in GM - in Toronto QF Nole played the worst match since never.

But wait, we'll see.

Yes - agreed the Murray match was nothing special yesterday. Karlovic's serve was off - and without that, he really has no weapons. And Murray is a smart player with a great return - he was just too smart for him. Also agreed Nole had a bad day in Toronto - but I'm still :unsure: I really want him to wn this title :)

How? Tell Alex you know his countryman, from the very same city, about his age who loves to watch again too. I just love (like a kid) when I see big Nole point to be 'suprised', wow...

Does he watch F1 now like me?

No - he's not really into F1 -football is his first love :rolleyes: The rain has stopped here for a while, so he is being a good boy and mowing the lawn :) He got very drunk on Friday night :spit: so he's trying to be extra nice to me right now.

08-03-2008, 03:00 PM
Wasn't sure where to put it,- but this is the tourney thread - so why not here? Nole's Press Conference..............

Q. How do you feel being the first to beat the new No. 1?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, nobody is unbeatable, obviously, but the way he was playing we all thought that he's not going to lose any time soon.
But, you know, I just tried not to think about his winning streak and his new ranking spot. Not official still.
But, you know, I tried just to focus on my game. I won against him three times before on this surface, and I know what it takes to win against him on hard courts. I got the best out of it in last couple of matches we played in this surface.
I knew that I have to step in and be aggressive and take the chances that have been given me, so that what's did.

Q. I'm sure it wasn't easy in the first set, but it seemed like you knew exactly what you wanted to do and your shots was hitting the lines.
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Yeah, was probably caught a little bit surprise. You know, he didn't expect such a fast start from my side. That was my intention, you know, just try to step in and go for the shots.
I didn't want to be in the long rallies with him, because that's how he wins the points. He's physically a very well-prepared player. As soon as you get to the longer rallies with him he gets the momentum going and he gets the rhythm, and so it could go either way in the second set.
He had a breakpoint. It was a pretty long rally and I managed to stay in it.

Q. Does it give you the feeling that maybe now you're going to start to get back to somewhere near your best?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, I think tonight I was, if not my best, then very, very near my best. I mean, I was playing great tennis and everything that I imagined to do against Rafa. So hopefully I can, you know, be as consistent as today again tomorrow.

Q. First of all, was the first set too easy in light of did you expect him to play better in the second set? I mean, it looked like two different matches.
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Yeah, well, after such an easy first set result-wise, obviously a player like Nadal comes back and tries something else. I knew that, so I just tried to stay with him and hold my service games comfortably.
It's a fast surface, so it was really not easy to return here. He was struggling with my serves. When I needed to serve out well I did, so that was quite important.

Q. Do you think you had the edge physically? Do you think he was maybe more tired than you were today?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, I don't know. Maybe. He's going to tell you better if he's tired or not. But as I said, I was trying to focus on myself, not on him, and just play what I imagined to play.

Q. Seems like to stay with you on this surface he has to play a little bit outside of his comfort level. Is that gives you confidence, or do you feel that out there?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, if you say so, that he has to get out of his comfort zone. But I think he's obviously one the best players on this surface still. He's been proving that this year playing finals of Miami, semis of Australian Open, Indian Wells, and won Toronto and here semis again.
He's been very consist. He was losing most of the matches on this surface, but yet again, he was always in the final stages of the tournaments.
He's a player that you really have to play your best to win against. That's it. And I did my best tonight and I won.

Q. What do you have to do tomorrow against Andy Murray to win the title?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Just have to play the way I played tonight and the way I play always on hard courts. I made a mistake last time I played with him in Toronto. I was letting go of my chances and he was in the control of the match more. He was going for the shots. He was playing wisely, you know, and obviously he learned something from our past matches.
So I know what I did wrong. Hopefully I can turn it in a positive matter for me tomorrow.

Q. In the first set you earned 25 points; Rafa only 11. Have you ever played better tennis against him?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: I don't know. I mean, really, I played in Indian Wells this year I think if not equally then very, very close performance as well as this one in Indian Wells and Miami as well last year.
So obviously the best tennis and the most chances I have against him is on this surface, so this is what gives me a lot of confidence.

Q. You've said that hard courts are your favourite surface. After Wimbledon and last week in Toronto, even the beginning of the week here, how big that was win for your confidence?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: Well, I was slowly, slowly getting the momentum. I was saying after each match that I was feeling better and better, so I can confirm that even now. My form is rising and I feel that I'm on my best now.
I just need to try to keep that and keep that going even for tomorrow's final.

Q. What has been the secret about achieving that? Just getting better rested or getting better in the mental shape?
NOVAK DJOKOVIC: All combined. Everything is combined. This is individual sport, and it requires a lot of time on the court and off the court as well. A lot of dedication physically and mentally.
But, you know, I have all the strokes I need, and I know that I'm more or less complete player. It's just a matter of mental, you know, ability and confidence. If I feel good in that moment.
So now I feel great, and hopefully I can feel that as well tomorrow.

I do not think we will ever again see such gorgeous tennis as we got from Roger in his prime so am with you there. And I know what you mean; some the more extreme Rafa partisans here really get my goat too. But so do some of the Fed fans. And there are couple of Noletards I could strangle on occasion.

Disliking anyone because of MTF fans is about as fair as my disliking Andy because the UK media coverage is over the top. :shrug: I had a bit of a kneejerk reaction there at Wimbledon when he beat Gasquet (who I've loved for years) but his tennis has won me over again recently.

Why is Rafa a peasant? I understood his family were wealthy Mallorcan business owners who've lived there for centuries.

Is that a Scots expression? I've not heard it before although when I see it, I can tell it means nerves. :) :)


Anyway, I'm very excited about today's match. I hope Djokovic plays better than in Toronto where I was very disappointed in his tactics against Murray. Today, I hope he rises and plays gloriously. I wish I could be there. You know with Djokovic, you can't really get the full idea of the weight and speed of his shots on television because he looks so easy with his strokes, and the tv picture foreshortens every thing. But sitting on the baseline and seeing and hearing his shots is fantastic.

Sometimes I still worry about his stamina. I hope he's improving in that area.

Anyway, I'm very excited about today's match. I hope Djokovic plays better than in Toronto where I was very disappointed in his tactics against Murray. Today, I hope he rises and plays gloriously. I wish I could be there. You know with Djokovic, you can't really get the full idea of the weight and speed of his shots on television because he looks so easy with his strokes, and the tv picture foreshortens every thing. But sitting on the baseline and seeing and hearing his shots is fantastic.

Sometimes I still worry about his stamina. I hope he's improving in that area.

No- it's English far as I know. I love it - English does have some crackers.

He can't play as badly as Toronto - that was one the worst performance I've seen him give.

Ah Phillipines - OK - I was trying to work out were you could be in relation to the time difference here.

I'm on my second cappuccino to keep me awake :eek:

I must admit you know football pretty good:yeah: Premier, Portugal, Holland...:worship:

I support Portugal and Holland next to England because of Cristiano Ronaldo and Van Der Sar. I'm a huge fan of Man United.

Best Euro for years as far as I was concerned :devil: and at least Switzerland and Austria escaped being trashed and drowned in vomit and urine.

Too bad Euro Cup 2008 wasn't aired here. I only keep up with the news through the internet.

Can't help it - I'm always nervous for him :unsure: And I think doubly bad for us Brits, because our media is just so full of Murray - they won't shut up about it for months is he beat Nole today. They're still showing his win over Nole in Toronto every 5 minutes :lol:

Me too, I always feel nervous for him no matter how good he plays. All I mutter throughout the match is "ace, ace... break, break and go nole :lol: ".

It's easier to concentrate on the tennis that way. I get distracted by other people when it's on tv. I don't mind talking to people when watching tennis live. But with tv you've got the announcers and other people, it's just too much. Too much chatter.

That game was a nervous one :scared:

Thank goodness he held.

If he does that again I'll have to unload the dishwasher...

Great hold finally! No more service games like that, please. He needs to focus and not give Murray hope. Murray started playing more aggressive when he saw Nole struggling. He needs to shut that down. Please break now.

Murray's face is annoying when he's receiving...and serving...and playing...and walking around.

Getting frustrated. Hope, that makes him calm down instead of get tighter. Easy, quick hold for Murray. Hold. His first serve's are getting worse. I'm getting more nervous as the match goes on. :sad:

I think he looks tired and too hot. He's already trying end points fastly. Murray's way too fast today. Once again, from 40-15 to Deuce. I'm so sad. This sucks.:sad:

This is my first time watching Murray in a while and I must admit that he's improved a lot. Still, Nole's playing so nervous right now.

It was there in the beginning so let's hope it comes back soon. Break please. Or at least give Murray some problems.

ESPN just said he has 18 UEs already! Please calm down.

Nole's just so tense right now, it's painful to watch.

and what the hell was that?!
