I only saw the last couple of games, but Novak held his nerve nicely saving three breakpoints in the final game, the last on an ace down the T. The win even got a grin out of Cheery Jiri as he sat down in his chair afterwards! It was so good to see him on court again, it's been too long. I hope he puts up a good showing against Malisse, this could very well be his last US Open too.

Hate when 2 guys I like play each other. Here's to the older generation though :yeah:

Too much unforced errors by Srichaphan . Novak is more regular player and that's why he won today .

Thought Paradorn was pathetic yesterday. He was feeling the effects barely 2 hours in - surprising given the shape he is in. Novak on the other hand looked like he had just spent the last few hours down the pub and played pretty pressure free and almost thought it was funny that he won.
