Djokovic didn't lose points on serve until it mattered.

Terrible result

How does Nole have more aces, more winners and still lose in straights? I think that also happened against Murray.

I'm glad Nole is done with this surface for weaklings. Time for the real tennis courts of North America.

Happy for DelPo...good for his confidence.

And sorry for Djo, but i'm sure he will rise again soon starting with USO.

I mean, yeah, if you win, you deserve it. Djokovic couldn't deliver when it mattered, and to win you have to.
Just someone I dislike winning, someone I like losing.

Happy for Del Potro. Obviously meant a lot to him.

If he was (unjustly) blamed for the DC failure of 2008, this makes up for it.
