Troicki was serving for the first set and had 40-0 but again too clutchy from Viki .
How this guy even surviving in this world day after day without raising hand on himself ? How he can bear so much frustrations and still making his own decision and travel around the world week after week just to increase frustrations more and more . Definitely one of those so called consistent guys

Expected. Viktor's record against top 10 guys is terrible.

Djokovic's little puppy dog pleasing his master as usual :bigclap:

players like him and Almagro put their hero's success before their own, modern tennis for you :o

:lol: at Troimug - with his serve it's pathetic to lose 5 points in a row having a triple set point :o But credit to D'Joke, he saved those set points in a style of a champion, especially the third one when he made a combination of dropshot and gentle contre pie volley.

Great match from both. That was not choke on 6:5 40-0...Novak played 3 amazing points.

Serbia is a strong favourite to win DC.

I think the word is overused, but today, it isn't. Viktor choked serving for the set and being 40-0 up. He got tight, Nole did raise his level but Viktor didn't play the tennis that got him to that point. Very unfortunate, as he was playing excellent tennis up to that point, serving big, hitting out on the ball and coming to the net well. Nole just hung in there and his confidence, experience and competitiveness got him out of a tough situation. It was a good match, pretty expected in terms of how everything played out and the result. Nole into another final in Basel.

I wouldn't bet on this. Djokovic will win 2 matches , France will win doubles and then . If Fiksy plays he'll probably try to fix , and if Viki plays he'll choke . It will be close one

Almost by definition.

Troicki is a good server and 40-0 on your serve indoors means you should be able to find an ace or service winner unless your serve fails to deliver on one of the 3 points. Certainly should not lose 5 serve points in a row.

Troicki has one of the sexiest girlfriends on tour to go home to every night.

The prize money doesn't hurt either.

Not as big a choke as it sounds... but still a choke
If Serbia DC wants to be fair, they will play Troicki. If they actually want to win, they will play Tipsarevic.

Amazing the way Troicki lost the match according to previous posts ( I didn`t watch the match). Inspite of the defeat it was another good week for Victor. He needs to find that confidence that he lacks at certain matches but if he can strenght that he already proved that he is a dangerous player.

Djoko definitely is the favourite to win tomorrow.

If Troicki was 6-0 6-0 5-0 in a slam final, he'd still find a way to lose.

He did play well other than the end of the first set though. Recent form suggests he really should be looking at top25.

Nice one Nole!

Now, please beat Roger tomorrow and defend the title. :)

Felt kind of bad for Troicki. After he got the break in the 2nd set, every time something went right for him, about 10 other things went wrong.

But despite how I felt for him, the latter part of the 1st set was kinda funny. Troicki had 3 set points, serving at 40-0 and Djokovic just opened and saved the 1st one by crushing a forehand return for a winner. Saved the 2nd in a similar fashion. And soon, they were in a tiebreak.

Troicki is garbage

So respectful :retard:

When Federer routines someone ranked in the bottom half of the top 100 or even outside it like Dabul, Dent, PHM or Seppi they are all "amazing" players gunning for Federer and giving it their all but somehow Troicki (who actually has some game) is "garbage."

:smash:
