Silly me, granted that I don't hang around much lately in GM but for some reason I thought Nolandy practiced together not Verdasco and Andy, totally misread that :haha: .I'm pretty nervous about his opening match. But he's been giving too much stress lately, so I wont put too much heart watching his progress in the tournament (I'll still watch his match time to time though). Verdasco seems to be getting all the helps he needs. I heard he even practiced with Sir Andy Murray on RLA :hysteric:
Anyway, I check Novak's instagram lately. He seems very peaceful off court though. That picture of him in the botanical garden is just too cute
:hug: Well at least now you can cheer on your other favourite who has been waiting for this moment an awfully long time (not if my fav can help it, of course) :lol::sad:
:awww: Don't be sad :hug: , if you feel sad just remember all the wonderful moments Novak gave us here in AO and elswhere. I have noticed that his defeats don't pain me anymore(apart from that first 5 minutes right after the match) since RG .At work so i couldnt watch the match. Catch a glimpse of it via TV at work but I'm kinda glad i didnt watch the match.
I have to be honest I'm really sad with the result. Just when I think Novak is getting his mojo back... I cant believe he lost in R2 of his best and favorite slam...
Being #1 again now seems like a far away dream, and i truly have lost my trust on him winning a Slam again. But even if this really happens, I'll still cheer for him. I used to said it so many times, but now that things looking bleaker and bleaker, i kind of get a reality slap. He had given me so much joy watching tennis, I'll support him when he is at his lowest.
Truly a sad day for me as a big fan. This will hurt for a while (maybe it's the best I avoid GM at the moment)
That's the way to go , he has had such an outstanding career that anything he wins now is a cherry on top, I was never one of those people who wanted him to crush Federer's records or insisted that he'll win a CYGS (I simply think it's impossible to do in this day and age even though he ended up winning a non calendar one), my biggest wish has always been to reach double digits in GS and career slam.@Sportsperson000 :hug: yeah i know. I'll never forget how happy I was when he finally won RG and hold the four grandslams at the same time. A moment to cherish forever
As for now i think it's a mixed up feeling: the sense that the end is nigh for Novak and the feeling of being abandoned by old-time Novak fans who outgrew of MTF, I guess. It's a pretty sad feeling. I thank you for your effort to keep this subforum afloat, I'm so glad that you and every other frequent posters are still around. It's a tough road ahead for Nolefam from now on, I'll try to enjoy the ride while I still can
I tried to find some yesterday without any result. I dont think anything will come up on the surface. If you read twitter, some mentioned his diet, his relationship with Jelena, his shennanigans with Pepe, but after all it's rumor. Normally the serbian posters have "inside news" circulating in their media, but since they dont post that often now, we basically at the mercy of mainstream mediaAny inside story about what the fuck has happened to him?
