Novak was emotionally down and I remember he basically just gave up at the start of the second.Nothing like Federer was playing outstanding or something, just Novak got emotionally off since the beginning and gifted the win..Also he indicated that he had some trouble with his elbow.

Tsitsi just dismantled Federer today..The way it should be really..I mean Federer was once great against the likes of Gonzales and Roddick but after that era he was basically a bunny of Novak and Nadal.Just sneaks in Grand Slam or two when Novak or Nadal are out injured..

What do you think?

define fluke.

Djokovic played as he did all week, and it wasn't enough against an inspired opponent.

It happens. It's not a fluke.

Federer had Djokovic to a final set tiebreak in their last 2 matches.

After Federer's dismantling of Djokovic, does it prove that Novak's win over Berrettini was just a fluke? :unsure:

Not a fluke. Fed has his serve working full force against Djok--he had nothing working today. But Djok put up no resistance 2nd set, he basically bent over.
Djok made Fed look better than he actually is. Djok himself is not so great these days; he won Paris beating Shap and Dimitrov.

I think Tsitsi and maybe AZ would have also beat Djok.

Fed won because he was great that day and not because DJ was so poor, but looking at his overall performance this tournament I'd definitely call it a fluke performance.
