Oh sorry ... Monte Carlo isn't it? Isn't that the first clay Masters Series? I didn't realise Jo wasn't playing it

Yeah I must admit to being very disappointed with Jo yesterday. Nole was there for the taking, he was on the ropes, and Jo just couldn't find the game to finish him off. But, these things happen unfortunately and its onwards and upwards to the next tournament. Monaco in 2 weeks I believe?

very very bad match from jo. One of the worst I ever seen fom him. All his weapons were off(serve,forehand,volley)
disappointing cause he had many chances to get back in the second set with djokovic struggling.
Well I hope he ll be ok for clay.He never played much on it so just hope hell be ok.
Well a quarter finale is quite good for sure

Ahhh, it's pity... Am I disappointed? Mixed feelings, I can say. In one hand - this tournament was better then IW, 1/4 is not bad, solid playing vs Simon etc. In other hand - oh, come on, Jo, you could win this match against Nole, it was not causa mortis!!!

Re: Post AO Season Thread 2009

I am disappointed, not because he lost but because of the way he handled those break points when Djokovic was clearly struggling. Whenever he had advantage point, he tried to be aggressive on the return and often overshot it - when keeping the ball in play would have forced Djokovic to move and make the next shot. In the AO 2008 final, towards the end of the 4th set, Djokovic was also struggling, but Jo allowed himself to be distracted and ended up making unforced errors. It was a bit like déjà vu all over again. No matter what the opponent is doing, or whatever outside factors come into play, it's important to stay in the moment and adjust your game plan accordingly.

Having said that, he's done a great job making it to the quarter finals. What was particularly impressive was that he was not broken serve once until this match. The low first serve percentage against Djokovic cost him dearly, and in the end, it's just one of those days when things don't always click. Well done overall this week.

Now, onward and upward to the clay season. Allez!

Disappointing match. But well still a good run after all. Just go get some rest and come back refreshed for clay season now Jo. Not expecting anything amazing from him there, but he should be able to do better than that one Casablanca semi he has to defend.

Re: Post AO Season Thread 2009

Jo lost. Poor serving 1st set. Too many UE and not enough winners. He improved in the second set. Nole was physically struggling at the end. One of Nole's service games lasted over 15 minutes in the second set. Jo had more than one chance to break during that game. He was somewhat off today.
oh well, this was still a very good run for Jo. He will gain a fair amount of points since he was out 3rd round last year. Fashion info: Both players wore the same adidas blue shirt and white shorts. Of course, Jo's must be 2 sizes larger.

I like his shoes actually, they match his outfit

jo just lost the 1st set, he's playing poorly, 44% of 1st serve and 20 UE's

I'm not going to watch the end of the match so good luck Jo!!
