i`m Bulgarian but i`m so proud and happy with Nole`s way of playing and his natural talant:worship: !he`s Serb but he shows how talanted and strong mentally are the people from the Bolkans.i really think he`ll be N1 in the world one day-first of all because he believes in himself and second of all because i believe in him more than in anyone else!i think that Bercy and Madrid are his chances to make all of the "big guns" scared before the beginning of the new season.Nole can make even Fedex shaking all winter(and not only because of the Swiss snow)!AJDE NOLEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!:bounce: :kiss: :bounce: :kiss:

[12] ANCIC, Mario vs Bye
GINEPRI, Robby vs [WC] LOPEZ, Feliciano

[5] DAVYDENKO, Nikolay vs Bye
Q vs JOHANSSON, Joachim

Bye vs [10] GONZALEZ, Fernando

[15] DJOKOVIC, Novak vs Bye
NIEMINEN, Jarkko vs GASQUET, Richard
MURRAY, Andy vs Q
Bye vs [3] LJUBICIC, Ivan

[6] RODDICK, Andy vs Bye
GROSJEAN, Sebastien vs BJORKMAN, Jonas
CALLERI, Agustin vs SERRA, Florent
Bye vs [11] BERDYCH, Tomas

[13] HAAS, Tommy vs Bye
MONFILS, Gael vs HRBATY, Dominik
MALISSE, Xavier vs Q
Bye vs [2] NADAL, Rafael


In Novak's section did they decided to just put every good young player in there? I mean really...

[15] DJOKOVIC, Novak vs Bye
NIEMINEN, Jarkko vs GASQUET, Richard
MURRAY, Andy vs Q
Bye vs [3] LJUBICIC, Ivan

Novak, Gasquet, Murray... and then we always have Ljubicic to look forward to. Tough section for sure, but it's his chance to really prove himself against the rest of his generation. Of course if he plays Nieminen, that will be interesting as well.

Joe, I don't think I'm completely out of line to say... the draw sucks! :lol:

dear lord!!!what a horrible draw!!!if Nole had to struggle it could be better just to send him play against Fedex and this to be the end probably but now with that draw i think that everyone will be scared for themselves and so good players will lose so soon!but that`s Nole`s golden chance to show everyone who is the biggest rising star in nowadays tennis!!!AJDE NOOOOOOOOLE!!!

It must be tough being the fan of a player hyped to be the next coming of Federer. Some of the Gasquet fans are acting like this is some awful loss that he should be ashamed of and that he'll never win again. Richie is a good player but Novak was higher ranked than him and has won an indoor title this year. :shrug: It's not an awful loss for Gasquet, and the guy's career is going to be just fine.

That kind of stuff makes me glad Novak never got that hype Gasquet did.

Nole should just drop doubles in Madrid. Icky scheduling to have his first round doubles last on the third day. He has a big match tomorrow and should he win, he'll have a big match the next day, and the next day. I mean, at the very least he should tank this.

Murray 0-2 Djokovic

A change of shirt does not bring much of a change of fortune for Murray, who can clearly be heard saying "play the way you were" to himself. A drop shot looks to be a winner but Djokovic races into put it into the empty half of the court for Advantage. After a long rally, Murray nets to give Djokovic a clear lead. His game is going to pieces.

Murray 0-1 Djokovic
Djokovic keeps his momentum going, holding his serve as Murray is visibly and audibly getting very rattled.

It annoys me slightly that they are labelling it as a choke job on behalf of Murray. Perhaps Murray did choke but the fact that Djokovic didn't fall apart surley warrants some credit?

The way I see it is Djokovic isn't brilliant, hes got a great serve, forehand etc but Murray at his best is probably a little better. However the fact that Djokovic is very strong mentally at a younger age should benefit him further and allow his career to develop at a faster rate.
I remember Safin was always streaky and that remained with him throughout his career, the fact that Djokovic has matured at this pace mentally gives him a comparative advantage over the others.

Also, who the other top players will be, and what styles they play will have a major impact, cuz Nole and Murray match up better against different types. To a degree.

I remember Safin was always streaky and that remained with him throughout his career, the fact that Djokovic has matured at this pace mentally gives him a comparative advantage over the others.

Andy was simply getting every ball back and changing pace for most of the 2 sets, commiting almost no errors while Novak was pushing it and often missing just barely. I thought Novak was in control of the points but was getting outplayed by clever tactics. I think Andy is a prime example of a counter puncher with excellent versatility and he's got a very nice backhand but I think he lacks that final shot to end the point, to take initiative. Thus his game is very taxing on the body and obviously he can't handle it yet.

Novak is very different type of game and can't compare to Andy. He is much more aggresive and his forehand is a finnishing shot that can end any point. But as we saw today it can make him impatient when he is too aggressive like in the beginning but afterwards he was playing in much better control
