Lopez Jaen never really gave it a go. He seemed quite reluctant.

Clean hitting from Novak. :)

Off to round 3. :cool:

About dad - Srdjan succedded and put Viskovic (THE best Serb commentator) away. Untill now at least. New comm. OF COURSE cheering for Novak as dad commanded. Something like this - 'Wow Novak, that's nothing to him, Novak this, Novak that, Novak easy'...I am expecting in next rounds - 'I'll s**k you Novak, f**k me Novak whenever you want, do it to me...'

Am I the only one who finds it ridiculous that Nole is in R3 when there are many R1 matches still to finish? Ridiculous scheduling.

He did a job on Sharapova... but not on Nole. Im guessing he decided to dump the Nole reporting 'cause of Daddy.

The guy that did the job today is such a suck-up, please see are there any chances of remedying the situation.

Maybe some enhanced security measures at Kosutnjak or something. (though they are prob gonna be reorganizing things there soon, so If Janicti gets replaced ... there just might be some hope) .

Best of luck.

Why? So there will be more matches fall behind schedule? All 2nd round matches are scheduled last or 2nd last on courts. How long a match runs is out of the hands in tournament scheduler and on show courts, they have to put some more interesting matches for TVs :shrug:

he got 30/40 mins of play for 3/4 days which helped him keeping his rhythm/momentum, keeping him warm while at the same time doing no physical harm as it was just 30/40 mins whereas roger had to spent the cold days on bed with no match practise which left him rusty in the final and disrupted his momentum if had any .

Assuming he ever did. I know Federer thought he did that time in Rome, but that doesn't make it so.

We never got to the facts of that matter.

And having seen Toni Nadal many many times since that occasion, I have always thought his courtside behaviour was exemplary so I'm not convinced he was coaching. The guy seems to me to be old school class - sits down, encourages his player but applauds the opponent's good play too, and seems to enjoy the tennis and the occasion, rather than purely there just to violently support his player.

Seriously, that is horrible scheduling. At least finish the R1 matches or get them all on a court before you schedule R2. :rolleyes:

Indeed, though I don't think it's due to out-foxing. Srdjan isn't afraid to boss and intimidate; he's fearless. Mirka and Uncle Toni are both fairly reserved and don't have that finishing power.

He is ranked higher than last year. It's logical that he plays lower ranked players in the first few rounds (till SF :devil:). Another thing is other "better" players (e.g. Berdych, Moya etc.) who are supposed to meet him keep losing their matches. Nadal had the easiest draw in Australia.

Anyway, nice easy win for Novak. Well done.

He is ranked higher than last year. It's logical that he plays lower ranked players in the first few rounds (till SF :devil:). Another thing is other "better" players (e.g. Berdych, Moya etc.) who are supposed to meet him keep losing their matches. Nadal had the easiest draw in Australia.

Anyway, nice easy win for Novak. Well done.

It's not Novak's fault...but luck is luck.

Tennis-Open-Fresh Djokovic taking things slow

By Miles Evans

PARIS, May 28 (Reuters) - World number three Novak Djokovic refused to get too far ahead of himself after booking his third-round berth at the French Open with consummate ease on Wednesday.

The Australian Open champion brushed aside Spain's Miguel Angel Lopez Jaen in just 80 minutes with a dominant display of power-hitting on the bullring Court One at Roland Garros.

While others have been dodging the showers and checking forecasts the last two days, the third seed has enjoyed two uninterrupted wins that could potentially see him have three matches in eight days before the semi-finals.

"I'm not thinking about semi-finals at all at this moment. I'm thinking about only winning the tournament. No, I'm joking :devil:," the Serb said after his 6-1 6-1 6-3 triumph.

"I'll have to go slowly, you know. Next opponent, next match. Every next match is getting tougher, tougher, and tougher. Physically I'm ready for upcoming challenges, and I think that's one of the most important things."

Djokovic did not face a single break point against Lopez Jaen, who was totally outclassed in the first two sets and only briefly threatened a fightback in the third, holding serve to 3-3.

The Serb, looking fresh after spending fewer than four hours on court for his first two matches, said he prepared for the match by watching Maria Sharapova's tough opening-round clash on Centre Court :cool:.

"We watched it from the men's locker room. Whenever some of the nice looking girls are playing we're sitting and watching," the Serb grinned.

"Yeah, she was struggling, but, you know, it's challenging for her. She's always a favourite, so it's not easy.

"I experienced it myself in the match today, and especially in the start. It was a lot of wind and a lot of difficulties, and it was not easy to get used to that and accept it.

"But, you know, you're a professional player, so you have to play under a lot of different circumstances."

Sure, I am a bit hypocritical, and I acknowledge that Nadal has the hardest draw of the "big three" - but that's how random chance works. Some might consider the fact that Novak has been on Rafa's 1/2 of the draw for the past 3 French Opens to be bad luck. We just accept it and move on.

Davydenko's reached two RG semis, Djokovic has reached one. Nalbandian has reached two RG semis, Djokovic has reached one. They are no gimme.

Murray, Querrey, Lopez Jaen, Ljubicic, how incredibly taxing. When he beats a top player on clay (he beat a tired Wawa in Rome) then he can be talked about as a world class player on clay. Right now, he's just a very good clay courter, no higher than that.

There's no need to declare Novak already as a winner before any of such a match. Ferrer won his last match against Novak on clay and we don't know the match-up between Nalbandian/Djokovic and Davydenko/Djokovic on clay.

With the exception of Wawrinka Djokovic didn't beat anyone from the Top 20 on clay this season. Of course it isn't his fault that other players lost earlier in a tournament, though I would be a bit more careful with predictions.

Aloimeh...I do believe, objectively, that Nalbandian, Ferrer, and Davydenko ARE superior clay court players. Who has Novak defeated on clay of ANY significance? Yes, he played Rafa well in Hamburg, but so did Lleyton last year. As far as Rafa, I will be the first to say that he had a pretty easy draw at the AO. But, at least he played some seeded players on the way to the semis. Novak will likely not play a seeded player until the semis: Rafa. For me, the jury is still out. Hard courts: Novak has the wins. Clay? No wins of any significance on the surface.

Davydenko's reached two RG semis, Djokovic has reached one. Nalbandian has reached two RG semis, Djokovic has reached one. They are no gimme.

Murray, Querrey, Lopez Jaen, Ljubicic, how incredibly taxing. When he beats a top player on clay (he beat a tired Wawa in Rome) then he can be talked about as a world class player on clay. Right now, he's just a very good clay courter, no higher than that.

Luck? :haha: Talent and hard work? :haha:

It's a very transparent conspiracy. ATP grows tired of Federer domination - the public needs some variety. So first, they bring Disney to fuck the schedules up and do various other off-court damage. Next, they analyze young upcoming players and choose Djokovic as most promising. (They give a big hard look to Murray, but eventually they decide he's too unstable mentally.) Then they assign an Anti-Fed Agent Marian Vajda (a real dark horse in the world of tennis coaching) to make a monster of him in a very short time. Of course, they feed both Vajda and Djokovic the necessary tactical and biomechanical data on Federer - and incidentally on Nadal, an almost nobody who showed up out of the blue and messed up their plans on clay big time, so there's some extra work necessary - and the whole plan is expected to be completed in about 18 months.

Really strange you didn't hear about this by now.

(Extra: 1. Mono was induced by ATP, 2. Fish and Stepanek went through a very strict 1 month crash course in Anti-Fed Campaign, and were paid handsomely, of course, 3. Anderson loss was just a lame cover.)

Wawrinka-may be tired, but not because he had to sweat in the semi, but because of Novak.There are a few people who can stay in game with Novak and not get tired by the pressure he makes all the time.Rafa does that even more spectacular and clear on clay, so that's the point.

Good thing is - all those players who we are talking about are miles way better than us.

Does it really nessesary to hate and write disgusting things about all threateners of our beloved player (which is case here most of the time)?
