Very easy match for him, he was super aggressive. I like this new version of Nole. Very promising start. :yippee:

Karlovic is down 3:1 in 5th set. Neither him or Dodig are not a serious threat to Novak at the moment. Troicki could be tricky but lets wait and see.

There is no other player's game that i enjoy watching more than Nole's, he has in my opinion the most aesthetically pleasing game when he's on. He's a joy to watch. :worship:

Does he have a day outfit as well or is this it? Otherwise it's not the smartest of choices to choose an all black outfit, specially since we're dealing with Djokovic here.

He reached the final in Valencia, he's no.42 in the world and a good doubles player. You need to watch more tennis Fedull tard ;)

Patrick Mouratoglou

Novak Djokovic - He's for me the number one threat to Nadal and Federer. He's the fittest one contender, really determined and high on confidence after this triumph in the Davis Cup where he was unbeatable. And finally because he owns a very complete game.

Here is a player with "eventual next number one in the world" written on the back. It's bad luck for him to be born in 1987 and to play at the same period as the two giants. Hewitt was luckier and got to sneak in the throne between the Sampras-Agassi era and the Nadal-Federer's one.

While waiting for a prospective semi-final against Roger, he'll likely have to face his compatriot Victor Troicki in the third round, the same one who gave him so much troubles at the last US Open.

Nole!!! :woohoo:. Cool outfit too, now ST can stand for something other than Sergio Tacchini, in Nole's case, ST stands for 'Serbian Tiger' with the orange and black wristbands. :)

Vintage stuff last night, Nole had the full arsenal on display, love the backhand as always, good to see his serve seems to be back to before he made all those changes , poor Marcel. :sad:, Keep it up Nole!!! AJDE!!! :rocker:

Hope that his game continues to improve as his outfits become less ugly (he is peaking).

Glad to see the first serve quality leaving the WTA and entering ATP.

Lets just pray for temps below 30 or else he should just call in sick.

Hope the joker of '08 is here.

As long as Djokovic doesn't get sick from the heat, he should be fine.

I expect him to reach Federer in the SF, and lose in a 4 set match with a close scoreline, much like the USO against Nadal. I expect Federer will have figured out how to approach him for the revenge match :D.

They need to start putting Djokovic in Nadal's half more often, and Murray in Federer's. These random chance draws always seem obsessed with the same guys landing on the same sides.

Very impressive stuff from Nole.

He's last on HiSense tomorrow and may not get on till late. If this is going to be a relatively cool AO compared with some of the blistering heat years we've had lately he's going to take some stopping.
