Horrid first set from Nole, improved from there. Needs to up his ante.

Nice from 'Cutienellie' in the first set. After that, no doubts - better player won.

Congrats Nole! :hatoff:

I only saw patches as I switched to Ferrer/Baghdatis a lot, but despite the clear scoreline after the first set, the win was not convincing in my view.

Very bad, wasted a bit too much energy, but it's good to have your bad match in the first rounds...

What a shitty performance from Nole today. Marco didn't do anything special today and still Djokovic needed 4 sets.
An even more dreadfull performance than Federer against Andreev 2 days ago...

Agree with you that Nole needs to up his game but he won't have to the next round as he is facing Istomin.

Marco can only take positive things from this match, if he can keep up with the level shown in the first set, he can make some noise around :yeah:

But this was NID, they simply aren't in the same league ;)

Probably ranks in the top 5 of Novak's worst matches.

9 double faults
46 winners against 61 unforced errors
33% 2nd serve pts won

His opponent wasn't good enough to beat a Novak that was in such a poor form.

Passive start from Djokovic. I blame that horrific outfit Tacchini has him in.

He ended the year so well and now he's starting it horridly.

Much closer then the scoreline showed, Chiudinelli only converted 3/17 BP's.

If Chiu broke at 1-0 in the second set to go up 2-0 it could have been a different game!

I wouldn't care too much about Nole's performance in early rounds. He can lift up his game when required.

Yeah, bad miss there on the bp. Funny how he lost 10 games in a row after that :-)

Novak needs a match against Nadal to get some some pop and confidence into his groundstrokes.

Especially after the first set, Novak was hitting his groundies with very good depth, but his shots could be penetrating the courts a little bit more than they are. He is getting more accurate with both his FH and BH down the line too.

Also, he started to really stand his ground on the baseline and started to hit his grounstrokes nice and early on both sides during sets 2,3 and 4.

Djokovic is playing good hard court tennis, as one would expect!

Sweet.

Nole was way too passive in the 1st set, annoying to watch. As soon as he attacks, a different story.

it doesn't matter. joke draw until the semis. he can be a different man then.

:cuckoo: Marco is one of the nicest players off-court, even thanking his fans for support when he lost a tough match in which he didn't play very well.

Anyways, good to see Marco take a set off Djokovic. Wish it was more, but oh well.

You wish. Even playing bad Novak can win anyone. I wouldn't worry much about his first rounds, he will pull out the big guns when he needs them. Economizing the effort is what he's doing.
By the way, i love the new outfit on him. :kiss:

Too much confusion with his game. He is a basline player willing to experiment with net play and jeopardizing what he is best at: baseline game!!!!!! I guess he will analyze the pros and cons and get his act together, because with this kind of play some of the big guns will have him for breakfast...... The serve is crying for HELP!!!! Good luck in the next round. He will be facing Istomin, a big server..... Too bad if he would only get his act together, because his draw is favorable.....

Yea, if he cannot triple bagel his every opponent, he should better retire. :cool:

Well, it depends. Everybody thought Cilic for example, should have a very easy match against Tomic, but it was almost his last match at the AO :)

Does anyone think Chiudinelli used a bit of gamesmanship with his time-outs to keep Novak in the heat for a bit longer?
