I guess he has a lot of off-court activities, so honestly I won't care about his result that much here. If he and his fans enjoy their very first ATP tournament and it's managed smoothly without any significant problem, I'll be just happy with that. :worship: Of course, sincerely hope he'll perform well for the home fans having a long wait for this. :wavey:
Fingers crossed for him and the brand-new SERBIA OPEN. Ajde!! :bigclap::aparty::bdaycake:

:lol: I think mine could because every time my hormones peak at the sight of Nole they would similarly be dampened by the sight of the Worm. So I should come out of the match neutral. Though, Nole's control over my hormones knows no bounds so if he wins I may explode.

Go Nole!

He may be number 4 now. But it will only be for a few weeks. I know he can get his number 3 rank back, and maybe grab the number 2 spot at the end of the year.

And Belgrade will be the first step. Woohoo!

"A match-up between Tipsarevic and myself should have all the makings of a spectacular clash bound to draw a capacity crowd and it will be a real bonus for the tournament."

"Red clay is his preferred surface and he will be an awkward opponent because he has improved dramatically in the last 18 months, I expect a very tough challenge."

"The fact that we are both from Belgrade and close friends makes it even more difficult, but our friendship ends once we set foot on the court because out there we are rivals."

"Nobody likes to play against a friend," said Tipsarevic, a fellow Serb, adding that he hoped for equal support from the crowd.

:awww: :(

Hi all from Belgrade :wavey: Very much looking forward to the match tonight. I saw them both practice yesterday, and they really seem to be good friends. Having a great time here, though very hectic and not enough hours in the day to fit in everything, and see everyone I want to meet and spend time with. Have survived the mosquitos by the River, drinking copious amounts of Aqua Novak :D, being close to Srdjan, eating too much chocolate and seeing Miljan everywhere i go. Well, of course, seeing Miljan is always a pleasure, though Jelena will now be able to agree that he makes me blush :o and that does not happen to me often, and is awfully embarrassing :o

OK, things to do and people to see. I will be leaving Belgrade tomorrow to go to the country and make peace with the relatives who are having to survive without me for a few days. So will make the best of my last full day here.

If I don't get my laptop back today than I can't post during the match since this computer can't really handle a SB and a IE page open at the same time. It also can't open pdfs so I can't open the order of play. I'm assuming they're playing the night match. Is that right?

Yes. The match will start at 8pm local time. Viktor just defeated Granoller.

ATP's live score is not working for me. I am getting the results from livescore.com. Anyone has problem with the same problem?

I guess Nole loves to serve first in a set so he rather breaks for the set instead of serving for it. :tape:
