Match Point Novak needs to be immortalized in sculpture, like Michelangelo's David. I'm sure that once he's gone to tennis Valhalla, his statue will have his stones as the focal point of attention, and tennis fans will make a meccan-like pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime, in order to rub those lucky stones, like the budda's belly.
Oh I missed this match, I cheer for both too but obviously expected result here.
Actually losing 6 games is more than expected, but he might be a tad tired after last week.
I'm sure the people there will show respect and gratitude to the players no matter where they're from.
It's all about tennis and nothing else.

Despite the political tensions, if the crowd is anything like last year, they be respectful towards nishikori at least. Watched he match, Wu give a little fight in the second set but nishikori came out on top. Hope he demolishes querrey next round but he's lost he last two meetings
