Djokovic Stays Hot, Fish Upsets Delpo, Ivanovic Chokes, Late Night With Federer in Miami

The hottest player in tennis, Novak Djokovic, gets a rematch today with the man who beat him in 2008, Kevin Anderson, tonight in the quarterfinals at the Miami Sony Ericsson Open.

Anderson, who beat John Isner yesterday, upset Djokovic in the second round in three sets in 2008, a fact not forgotten by the World No. 2.

“It’s not a nice memory, definitely,” Djokovic said reflecting back three years. “I will have an opportunity to get my revenge in the same court where I lost in 2008. But, you know, he keeps on playing really well on these courts, and you’ve got to give him credit for that. He beat some very good players. Big serve, very aggressive. So, you know, tomorrow night we are going to play where conditions are going to be a little bit slower, which I guess is a little bit better for me.”

On Tuesday, Djokovic easily beat friend and countryman Viktor Troicki 6-3, 6-2 to up his current win streak to 23 (21-0 in 2011).

In the early quarterfinal, Mardy Fish battles David Ferrer. Neither player has dropped a set and Fish just upset Juan Martin del Potro yesterday. A win today by Fish will move him past Andy Roddick as the No. 1 ranked American player.

“With Andy and the career he’s put together, it would be pretty tough to feel I was the No. 1 American,” Fish said. “He’s won so many more matches, so many more tournaments, so many more Davis Cup matches. So I don’t think I would ever feel like the No. 1.”

Fish and Ferrer have split their six meetings but they haven’t played since 2007.

Because of rain interruptions and long matches, former champion Roger Federer didn’t take the Stadium Court until 12:37am local time in Miami for his match against qualifier Olivier Rochus. Federer didn’t waste much time dispatching the Belgian 6-3, 6-1 in 52 minutes.

“I was home at the hotel till 7:00, so I had all day to do something else than to wait around,” Federer said. ‘I first thought or heard it was going to be canceled maybe because of rain, or my session anyway. They would move the day session back and the night session. So that was a bit just a waiting game to find out if I was going to play at all or not. You want to keep the mind focused. Supposed to play tonight. That’s what happened, so I’m happy I played a good match.”

Federer will play Gilles Simon on Thursday in one quarterfinal while Rafael Nadal meets Tomas Berdych in the other.

In the women’s draw, the semifinals are set on the top half with Andrea Petkovic vs. Maria Sharapova. The German Petkovic who upset No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki in the fourth round, outlasted No. 6 seed Jelena Jankovic 2-6, 6-2, 6-4.

Former No. 1 Sharapova overcame 17 double faults and a minor ankle injury to turn away Alexandra Dulgheru 3-6, 7-(6), 7-6(5).

“It was long. It was tough,” Sharapova said after the 3-hour, 28-minute win. “It was not my best performance, but I gutted it out till the end. I didn’t feel great throughout the match. I was making too many errors. My opponent was playing really well and consistent, and even though I had the lead, I just never took care of it. But at the end of the day I won, so I’m really happy.”

Today in the quarterfinals, Kim Clijsters meets Victoria Azarenka while Agnieska Radwasnka plays Vera Zvonareva.

Clijsters saved 5 match points and a 5-1, love-40 third set deficit to beat Ana Ivanovic 7-6(4), 3-6, 7-6(5) yesterday on a non-televised match on Court 2.

“It’s very hard, yeah – you should see my racquet,” Ivanovic said. “But I felt like I did nothing wrong. I had my opportunities and she played some really good tennis. I fought hard and stayed with her the whole match. I’m of course disappointed but there are positives.

“I kind of broke my racquet, then kind of cried a little bit. And then I was okay.”

ESPN2 will have live coverage today starting at 1pm.

227 Comments for Djokovic Stays Hot, Fish Upsets Delpo, Ivanovic Chokes, Late Night With Federer in Miami

sheila Says:

rochus was not a test for federer. the real test will b w/simon, who, i believe, has a winning record. if he should get thru simon, then nadal. i just finished reading an article on tennis bleacher report where 8 reasons were given y federer will never get #1 ranking back. sure would be a gr8 start 4 the #1 spot if federer could get thru simon & most likely nadal in semis. then that would give me, as a huge federer fan, confidence that his focus is on getting that ranking back or @ least striving 2get back #2 ranking. tuff @ his age, & competition is so much tuffer. martina navritalova says he will never get that ranking back & this is coming from a seasoned & highly respected tennis pro. if not #1, @ least a cpl more majors would make me happy as a fan.


Polo Says:

The more realistic goal for Federer is to win another major. To be number one again is still possible although each day added to his age is a day moving away from the number one spot. Therefore, if he is to become number one again, it has to happen this year. Beyond that would be almost impossible.


thetennisguy Says:

“It’s very hard, yeah – you should see my racquet,” Ivanovic said. “ I’m of course disappointed but there are positives.

“I kind of broke my racquet, then kind of cried a little bit. And then I was okay.”

I can relate … except for the crying part …

There’s no crying in tennis …

OT: Watch McEnroe vs Borg old guys match last night … McEnroe is so intense and his serve is amazing …


queen Says:

Sheila,

I don’t want to crush your dreams but Fed will not go past through Nadal. Not this time…


andrea Says:

agreed that rochus was no test for federer, but it was great to see roger in full fight with some amazing shots. he had the freedom to play that loose since there wasn’t much competition on the other side of the net.

simon seems to pose a problem for him so that will be an interesting match.

if he got thru gilles, possibly nadal and then jock itch in the final that would be cool, but he was pressed by monaco the other day and not looking as cool as he did last night, so the better guys will push him.

nadal is looking a bit sharper than indian wells, but he also had a rag tag opponent yesterday.


grendel Says:

andrea:”it was great to see roger in full fight with some amazing shots. he had the freedom to play that loose since there wasn’t much competition on the other side of the net.”

The non-Fed brigade – I understand it actually exists, and that there are those who actually derive no pleasure from watching Federer – will not understand Andrea’s point. For generally, watching someone beat up on a lesser player is not much rated, no tension and so on. But watching Federer unleash against a weak opponent can provide a glorious spectacle, simply because of the stroke play. I once watched Federer take Santoro apart at an AO, and it was delicious tennis. One irate poster fulminated against Federer as if he had been the devil – but the odd thing was, no one had more smiles than Santoro who, as they say, had a front row seat at this particular exhibition.

Only thing is, it’s important to remember this is not reality. These exhibition type matches have no bearing whatever on what will happen on court as the competition gets sterner.


jane Says:

^ ha ha, I understand it…now. The other night watching Nole against Blake was pure please for me, because he was so sharp, his serve was working, the movement, lots of power, just sleek clean tennis. I totally enjoyed it. (though there were moments I felt sad for Blake, second set, when he was deflated, in particular). I guess this sort of reaction is at least partly related to whether or not that player who is loose and flowing is your fave. But not totally though. I do remember, for example, being awed by Rafa at the FO in 2008, Monte Carlo last year, and being amazed at Fed’s level during the AO in 07; even though when he pummeled Roddick there I was sad for Andy, it was nonetheless hard not to notice & appreciate Fed’s superman mode on the court.


jane Says:

pleasure, not please.


Dory Says:

Fish will lose to Ferrer. Anyone else think otherwise? :P


jane Says:

^ I am leaning towards Ferrer, too, Dory. Ferrer has been great this season: he was in the semis of the AO, where he pushed Murray, hard. He could totally take out Fish. Although Mardy’s defense was surprisingly good versus Delpo – and he does have lots of variety. Maybe it will come down to whether or not Fish serves really well, because we know Ferrer is an excellent returner. He’ll make Mardy work for every point. In addition, while their H2H is 3 all, and they haven’t played since 2007, Ferrer has won 3 of the last 4 matches.


Tennis Vagabond Says:

Ferrer is having a great season and looks every bit the world #6. That said, Fish has a very high top level, so you never know.


dari Says:

Mardy impressed me yesterday and I think it would be nice for him to get American #1.
Plus, had dream last night that I was about to go swimming in a river and people were throwing fish after fish after fish up on the shore, including one giant fish at the end.
Will save interpretation for after the match!


Dory Says:

Fish’s major weakness is he can’t stay in a rally for long consistently without losing control and making a UE. Never seen him do that throughout his career.


Dory Says:

Wow I take back my harsh words for Fish. Both rallying well. Ferrer making more UEs initially.


dari Says:

Dory- I haven’t seen a ton of Fish tennis, but the long points don’t really seem to be the biggest problem to me, especially now that he is very fit. Very few match David in long rallies though, and that could make a difference in this match. Mardy is playing beautifully and hitting fh bigger than usual!


Dory Says:

WTF double double fault!


Dory Says:

PJ: Fish makes Ferrer go chicken.


Dory Says:

Exactly the opposite of what I said is happening. :) Ferrer making too many UEs. Looks like it will take Djokovic to take out Fish now. Btw I’m queer but Fish’s wife *is* damn hot.


jane Says:

Wow – good win for Fish! He’s on a roll.


grendel Says:

Fish is on a roll. I wouldn’t assume he can’t give Djokovic trouble.
All the commentators say that about Ma Fish. Can’t see it, myself. But then I expect she’d just walk right on by should she catch a sighta me. Good job, eh? I mean, it wouldn’t do, would it, if we all fancied the same person or type. Funny how that works out. I mean, you look at someone, and you think, surely…and you couldn’t be more wrong….


dari Says:

Fish comes through in tough conditions two days in a row- steamy heat, then wind!


jane Says:

“I wouldn’t assume he can’t give Djokovic trouble.” Nor would I. The double negative there threw me off. But sure, Fish could take out and/or trouble Nole. Mardy has loads of talent and is playing extremely well right now, clearly, considering the players he’s beaten to get this deep. Wasn’t it Fish who beat Murray last year here? Also, the Fish versus Nole IW final in 2008, when Nole was playing really well, was close. But first Djoko needs to beat Anderson. So let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Re: Fish’s wife; I am straight, but regardless, I still don’t get it. She’s not unpretty, but I don’t see the “hotness”. : /

Only Simon and Berdy stand in the way of a Fedal semi, which this time I hope we get to see; it’ll be the first time they wouldn’t be playing for the trophy in how long? Long time. Probably the winner of that semi will win it all.


margot Says:

jane, I don’t mind a Fedal semi….;)


Kimmi Says:

didn’t see the match but congrats to fish. to beat ferrer easy like that is a very impressive win. I hope he plays well in the next match coz a semi is suppose to be a tough match for both.

a fedal semi will be good..it will be even better if federer can beat nadal and djoko back to back to win miami. aaaargh, but i am not holding my breath.


grendel Says:

Someone pointed out (actually, it was my son, and he was speaking from memory) that Fish has got to 2 or 3 finals, but no quarters. I don’t know if this is true, though it sounds characteristic. he’s very up and down. At the moment, he’s up – so he’s dangerous!

Interesting how he deferred to Roddick, saying how he wouldn’t feel like the real US #1 and so on. I recall Blake saying much the same thing a few years back. It’s up to Fish to prove he is the real #1, and not just some upstart about to be rolled back to Benghazi. He’s got the ability – has he got the desire? These people like Roddick and Federer and Nadal – they’re in it for the long haul. You get the feeling with the Fishes of this world that they’re here to have a ball and whoop it up every now and again. That’s ok – adds to the gaiety of nations….


dari Says:

What do you mean 2 or 3 finals but no quarters, grendel?
I did like that comment from fish about roddick always the #1.


Kimmi Says:

ok, some live tennis. go kim!


contador Says:

dari, don’t mean to interrupt but i read grendel as saying or his son saying that fish either goes out relatively early or makes it all the way to a final. i think of him that way too: either on a very dangerous good streak or not at all. i tried to see fish at indian wells, he was supposed to practice with federer. but querrey stood in for fish, fish on the sideline with sverin and annacone.

then fish pops up at maimi. ( didn’t pick but one match i think) and he’s in the semi-final. not sure how dangerous he is to nole, nole has something like a 6-0 h2h over fish ( that’s from memory) so, nole would need to have a bad day and fish have a lucky day to win.


dari Says:

You don’t have to worry about interrupt! I actually got it after I thought about it. Thx.
Yeah, kimmi, real tennis now! Like both of these ladies. I think I’m ready for djokovic to go out this round, rspecially since I.picked Murray over him this round!
Won’t hold my breath…


Kimmi Says:

double fault after double fault..kim down a break, another break point for azarenka


Kimberly Says:

exhausted, just got back from watching live matches in the day session. Watched Vera/Aggie and Fish/Daveeed. Very poor conduct from Daveeed. There was a baby crying in the stands and he hit a double fault then hit the ball in the stands in the direction of where the crying sound came from.
Then watched Rafa practice and my little five year old got the coveted autograph. He’s so happy. Simon was out on the practice court as well as Azarenka who must have been warming up for her match. Saw Zinonjic and Llodra, and my son got an autograph and photo shoot with Liezel Huber.


Kimmi Says:

what a game from azarenka


Kimmi Says:

kkimberly – sounds like great fan.

azarenka hit some nice returns to break back again..kim needs to get first serves


jane Says:

Oh that’s sweet that your son got Rafa’s signature Kimberly – vamos! :) Daveed has a temper doesn’t he? He can get very riled up on court, yelling at himself and so forth.

dari, for me, if Nole has to lose before the final, or even before winning it all *wink* ;), I’d rather he lose to Fish than Anderson. I’d like to see him to get to the semis anyhow, and then maybe head to Europe for a wee rest, then some practice on the clay.


contador Says:

great!! he got rafa to sign his tennis ball! did you get photo to upload?

not cool! ferrer shooting a tennis ball in the direction of a baby?

have to go find a stream. go KIM! azarenka’s scream drives me crazy. actually she’s okay when playing a non-screamer like Kim but it’s when she plays andother screamer. petkovic is fine – really like her. he just yells. “auf!” german word each time she hits the ball.


Kimmi Says:

kim does not look great today, could still be feeling her long match yesterday. azarenka had a day off..so!

c’mon kim wake up a little..


Kimmi Says:

ah, cant watch kim losing this badly :(


dari Says:

I heard the baby crying and saw David hit the ball to the crowd but didn’t know he hit it towards the baby :/
Geeze
contador, I thought it was just me who heard “auf”
Hers doesn’t bother me one bit, goes with the effort.
Vika with the set. My priority for Kim is the slams. Would be nice for her to defend title, but after last night I want Maria to have it.
I’d be happy for vika if she won tonight. novak’s little video break on ESPN – real cute. Maybe its ok if he wins tonight
Do you have cable contador, matches on ESPN2


dari Says:

Kimmi- Kim ain’t here tonight. Shoulder, long match last night or whatever it is, she needs a break. I honestly didn’t think she was coming to miami at all after IW.


Kimmi Says:

dari – you are right, she just needs a time out, time off or whatever. wait for clay season.

whoever wins the title is Ok as i dont think they have won here before. petkovic is the lower ranked player left..so go underdog!!


jane Says:

Kind of wish Ivanovic wouldn’t've choked now as maybe she’d have some more fight? But Vika has won here before, good memories.


Kimmi Says:

yeah, you are right jane. vika won beating serena. i remember now..


Kimmi Says:

kim trying to make another comeback from 1-5 he he! i don’t think so..


jane Says:

Nope ^ not tonight.


Kimmi Says:

congrats to vika :)

too bad for kim, she didnt have the best prep for this tournament, especially after retiring with injury last week. Good luck on clay..


Kimberly Says:

Maria’s got to take this title! I know she can win this. Just no 75 UE and don’t double faoult away an entire set.


dari Says:

Rest for the clay, Kim.
Good for vika!
I hope she can get to the final over Vera. Vera has gotten so boring to me. Almost too consistent. hehe
Hope novak wears the all- black and the shoes tonight


Kimmi Says:

he he he vera too consistent dari, i think wozniacki take that title.

yap, will be good to see sharapova back, though she never really been my fav. these past few year i have felt some sympathy for her, thast why i cheer for her. if she start winning again i might stop cheering..he he he!


dari Says:

I’m good with woz now, she’s not boring to.me.
I suppose Vera took her place.
Kimberly, read your report on the bracket page- the hat has earned its worth, huh?! Very cool you got the signature, did damage in the pro shop. It’s great your son was so happy, and what about you?!


contador Says:

oh sheeeeesh…..thanks for telling me, dari! i mean the stream was fine but it’s better if i have tennis on ESPN2, the i can dvr it. wow, woulda missed that.

want to make sure i watch federer v simon and nadal v berdych, and espn2 filling in time with a match i didn’t see fish v ferrer.

looking for Kimberly and her son.

margot is right about fish’s shorts, ( funny comment on bracket challenge chat ) .

oh good. nole next!


contador Says:

nole has his gun case…..lol….wish he’s have worn that bomber cap too. that was cool.


Dory Says:

Not to discredit Fish. In fact the way he handled Del Potro was impressive but Daveed pretty much self-destructed. Hopefully the new “Djokovic” won’t. I expect Fish to get the same thrashing he got at the US Open.


Kimmi Says:

i try to cheer for djoko opponents but djoko has been too good. I will still cheer for anderson tonight..wouldnt hold my breath though, no way he can beat the best player of 2011. if anyone can end djoko run, i think it will be the spanish bull..


Kimmi Says:

i didn’t know anderson beat djoko before..eeeek! he is not like he is one of top guys, what did he do in that match?


contador Says:

dahveed will pick it up on clay. he won that acapulco 500 v an actually fighting, confident almagro. ferrer’s best is coming soon.


skeezerweezer Says:

^agreed. lol dahveed! Ferrer is more than a Terrier on the dirt, ya have to put him in the top 5 on that dirty filthy stuff :).


Kimberly Says:

contador and dari-that hat has been worth every rip off penny paid in the souvenier store.

I was happy to see my little boy so excited and satisfied. To be honest, I might have regarded myself as a failure of parent if I couldn’t pony up that autograph.

The black ink on a ridiculously large tennis ball doesn’t matter to me, but it does to a five year old. Actually the guard told me someone brought a two month old a few days ago in a Rafa the Bull onsie. They got an autograph.


contador Says:

but nole returns serves like it’s crazy. he’ll get back a huge serve out wide, look twisted and off balance but recovers and is right back place faster than anyone. i think he’s faster at return serve than ever.

the serve has to be a pure ace to get by djoko. and the only one who can hang with him in a rally i think is rafa atm.

dtl backhand winner while doing the splitz.


Kimberly Says:

this match will be a blowout!


jane Says:

Ah, Nole should’ve challenged that. He’s got those falcon eyes, so he needs to trust em.

Kimmi, Anderson’s serve is huge, and Novak was supposedly not ready for Anderson in 08. He knows more about him now. But Anderson is playing well: beat Davy, G-Lo, Isner, and Murray slayer too. You always cheer Nole’s opponents? I didn’t know that.


contador Says:

bet you are a proud mom now, kimberly. and it’s tough to get an autograph from rafa….the cutest kid pageant is lined up!


Dory Says:

Wow my Djoko playing fantastic!!!!!


Kimmi Says:

kimberly, do you mean like bagels and breadstick :)


jane Says:

Kimberly, do you agree with Dory’s take on the Fish vs. Daveed match? I didn’t get to see it all, but did Daveed self-destruct. I read at espn that Daveed was supposedly “sub-par”.


jane Says:

LOL contador “the cutest kid pageant is lined up!” – I can picture this. BUT not all those kids have the cutest red floppy hats and Rafa Nadal outfits, with mums dressed like Sharapova. ;)


contador Says:

pmacenro just used my nickname for nole out loud….well, as an adjective: called him “gumby-like” : ) djoko is the most flexible and can snap right back.


Kimmi Says:

i didn’t say always jane, but i have been cheering for them in the last 2 or 3 tournaments. so much for my cheering!

DF on break point is bad, do you hear kevin?


dari Says:

Even though he lost the point on bh onto the net, that forehand just before that was KILLER.


Dory Says:

Anderson moves and rallies amazingly well for a 6’8″ guy.


jane Says:

Ack Nole. : /


Kimmi Says:

nole has been really good at saving BP too. very difficult to break him.


Dory Says:

Serves saving Djoko on break point. The best thing this season is Djoko’s top-2 like level.


Kimberly Says:

kimmi–yes bagels and breadsticks

jane–it was shocking, he played well until he got broken to lose the set, then meltdown self destruct, double fault, bad attitude, unsportsmanslike conduct warning. We watched the whole match and it was completely the opposite of how i always pictured him. The crowd was cheering fish heavy and he was just snarling and piiiiiissssed off.


dari Says:

I heard that gumby contador and chuckled. Couldnt remember who said it but I knew it was someone here.
The fh, the ACES, my lord.
And I have also heard someone say he looks like Bert from bert and Ernie sesame street. That’s funny. and these shoes kinda remind of bert’s saddle shoes!


jane Says:

Kimmi, keep cheering ;)

Phew, Nice clutch serving Nole! Anderson is scary. Very fast, as Dory said, for such a tall guy. Definitely faster than John Isner. Pretty nice return of serve too. Making Nole work here.


Dory Says:

To clarify, I meant the perennial previous top 2 aka Federer and Nadal. If Nole can maintain this level during clay season…I would go mad with joy.


gordon Says:

When is Djokovic playing? Match was suppose to start at 9pm…


dari Says:

Jane- falcon eyes!?! Novak wears contacts, lol


Kimberly Says:

the hat was so ridiculous and sweet that everybody loved him.

Really it was the security guard who steered Rafa to us. we chatted with him the entire practice session about tennis and the Miami Heat and he promised my son he would make sure Rafa signed. He was a twenty something guy who plays and loves tennis. He says he’s been walking with Rafa since day one. Right after he signed my boys ball he said to us, see I told you I would get it. Also, at five, my son was really the smallest one there. Any younger and they really can’t behave well enough. My four year old can’t.

Believe it or not I wore the white Wozniaki today, thinner material and better in the heat. My son wore the gray shorts and orange shirt. I don’t know if i’m repeating myself, just suffering heat fatigue.


contador Says:

yeah, i think ferrer wanted to get back to the clay. he was a pleasant practice partner for everybody in IW. but i think he lost his first match. maybe that was part of soderling’s bad attitude too…tired of the delpo fans, wanted to go home and get ready for clay… animalgro had his tissy fit at IW, losing to montanes. it was stupid really. but…i give them all a new slate for clay.


Dory Says:

I always thought Nole looks like a Velociraptor. Positively complimenting obviously.


Dory Says:

But Anderson really impressed me. Nole really is needing to be playing at the top of his game to beat him.


jane Says:

Nole best be careful; this Kevin dude is playing well. No blowout or bagels/breadsticks so far.

dari, Nole had the best challenge record for a long time. That’s what I meant. But yeah, he wears contacts.


contador Says:

helps to schmooze a security guard if you can ; ) it was the woz dress, Kimberly.

ole’ nolee!!


Dory Says:

WOW best point at 2-3 30-30.


jane Says:

Ole Nole! Nice one :)


contador Says:

he’s too fast for anderson!

great point!


dari Says:

Shut up, on that point, novak!
Falcon eyes it is, then jane!


contador Says:

wow. what a forehand from anderson!

deuce


skeezerweezer Says:

This will be a well earned victory for Nole if he gets through. K is bringin some juice to Nole. Wait…just saw a point K played perfect…but Nole still pulled it off,,, awwww when you feel the confidence you can do anything :)

K is still bringin it though…thats what you have to do…who is going to be pushed back at the baseline?


Dory Says:

Why isn’t Anderson a top 20 player? Playing really impressive. Very clean ball striking too.


contador Says:

really never watched anderson play. i know he’s good. but yeah he is fast and light on his feet for a giant.


jane Says:

What – Nole chatting with crowd? Deuce, don’t lose focus Nole. : ( Too many errors tonight, but thank goodness for his serve. Phew.


Dory Says:

Cameraman driving me mad again. Such people should be fired immediately.


Kimberly Says:

contador—add kim cljsters to the “over it” crew of soda, almagro and ferrerr


jane Says:

Reminds me of Dr. Ivo at IW last week – he was playing really well there like Anderson is here. But Anderson has more speed for sure than Ivo, Isner, maybe even Delpo? Well, not sure about Delpo. Sometimes he looks speedy, getting to net etc.


Dory Says:

jane me thinking same. Probably moves as well as DelPo. But no Dr Ivo, who can only serve. Dr Ivo can’t hit more than 3 shots in a really before committing a UE.


skeezerweezer Says:

If K can keep this up in the 2nd, it will be very interesting….if….

Nole should serve out the first here….


Dory Says:

in a *rally I mean.


contador Says:

cilic can get a lowball best of the giants, i think. but this guy moves well. so does that young dutche schoorel….who hasn’t done too much yet though.

nole serving for 1st set. and it’s an aaa not an ace…into net


jane Says:

Come on Nole! Keep it going.


Dory Says:

Does anyone listen the music they play when showing set or match summary? This year’s music is so horrible. Up to last year, it was great.


jane Says:

True contador; Cilic is good when it’s all clicking, and pretty fast. Haven’t seen that Schoorel play yet I don’t think. Didn’t he play Fed once? AO or Doha or something. I remember someone talking about him before.


Dory Says:

Wow moment again on first point of 2nd set.


jane Says:

Dory I usually mute it between sets so haven’t noticed the music. Nole’s returns aren’t quite as accurate as they were versus Blake the other night, when they were landing, like, on his toes.


dari Says:

Cilic is rubberband man on his serve.
KA dancing on his feet- and hanging in with nole as well as anyone has lately.


Dory Says:

Wow Djoko’s having to do so much stretching today. Amazing flexibility.


Dory Says:

Breaking to love of this massive server!!


dari Says:

ESPN guys cracking jokes right now, nole locking it down.


contador Says:

yeah, it was me talking about schoorel. looked promising….maybe it was during rotterdam. anyway the atp website had his height down as 7’2″ lol…i mean he’s tall but not as tall as the shaq!

have to go look him up again.

oh nice point from anderson, again the forehand. bp for nole to fight off


jane Says:

Come on Nole – seems a little tired this game, or maybe not focused. Think he may be running out of steam. Nice volley from Anderson. Ack. Hope Nole can dig himself out and hold here.

Have Koenig & Goodall on my streaming.


Dory Says:

Oh my what a game!!


contador Says:

anderson has had his chances. but can’t break…..anderson coming in is smart; might as well try it. not going to beat djoko from baseline.


jane Says:

Doh Anderson had it there and let Nole off the hook. Phew. Hold Nole.


contador Says:

just as an example. anderson had a perfect chance a biffs it


skeezerweezer Says:

IMHO the best b@lls out tennis this tourney by far……


Dory Says:

That’s the Serena line judge behind KA, isn’t she? :)


contador Says:

yeah that probably was a demoralizing opportunity lost by the south african.


jane Says:

You’re right contador, a little to eager by Anderson there. He could’ve broken but one in the net, one long. And Nole with a key serve here or there to help.


skeezerweezer Says:

Well K is hitting sooo big and “in the zone”. But Nole is playing his best tennis ever and his defense against a big hitter who his swingin all out is holding up great,,,,,,,


Dory Says:

Good that he isn’t just fading away.


dari Says:

Was sure Anderson was gonna get that break.
Goodall and Robbie, jane?! Jealous ;)
Schoorel did his thing against fed in.doha- that’s when I noticed him. And was disappointed in his rotterdam, if i remember…


Dory Says:

Surprising he plays well from the baseline than at the net, that KA.


jane Says:

dari, Goodall and Robbie have been pretty quiet in this second set. You could tell me some ESPN jokes? ;) Anderson with some great placement on serve in that last game. Nole looks very zen in-between points.

Man, Mr. Kevin, lights out, Anderson has made Djoko dig deep so far tonight, imo. Nole trying to keep cool and relaxed but can see he wants this over. Running the big guy side to side.


dari Says:

Yeah, Dory- what’s up with that? Symptom of today’ s game.


jane Says:

Nice net point from Mr. A.


dari Says:

That was good volley by KA!


jane Says:

Nice return and passer from Nole.


jane Says:

Good angle on that backhand!


Dory Says:

Damn impressive that he is fighting.


Kimberly Says:

Kevin giving Novak a better match than the other three so far at least. I mean he’s going to lose this match but at least no baking.


Dory Says:

Djoko-super-flexible.


dari Says:

That backhand is ridiculous, novak


jane Says:

Nice job Nole, now serve it out.


Dory Says:

Djoko-top-class. But I want this KA guy to improve with the UEs and rise. Very professional showing today.


Ben Pronin Says:

I feel like if Djokovic plays like this against Nadal or Federer, he’ll lose. I think Fish will be particularly tough. Hopefully Novak will raise his game for the next 2 rounds. Amazing nonetheless how it legitimately looks like he doesn’t know how to lose. Anderson plays a really clean game, I’m pretty impressed.


jane Says:

Agreed Dory: totally impressed by Anderson’s performance. Very focused, never gave up, good mover, incredible server. He’s got fabulous potential.


Dory Says:

Who is everyone’s decent/tolerable commentator? Robbie Koenig and Jason Goodall are pretty good with the game analysis I think. I like Goodall’s voice as well, great voice.


dari Says:

I just love Robbie’s accent and his weird little sayings-
Pmac pointed out infamous serena uso foot fault line judge and said “well she’ s played more matches than serena has since then” I laughed at first, bit then thought about her serious health problem- making jokes about petko dance and novak dance, nothing special


Dory Says:

Nole’s 2nd serve has such a great kick. Match point!!


stu Says:

has he gotten a bit bigger or is his chest just puffing with pride? :)


jane Says:

Nole played good. Maybe not his best, but solid, solid tennis against what Anderson was bringing tonight in my opinion. Too many errors in set one, but he cut way back on errors in set two. This was a good stern test, better than the scoreline suggests.

Way too go Nole!!!! :)))


Dory Says:

My Djoko!!!


stu Says:

really, Ben? I watched only the second set but I thought he was brilliant! the way he asserts his authority, his amazing backhand angles, ending with a nice set of volleys at the net…i thoroughly enjoyed it…

celebrations a bit over the top tho..why?


Dory Says:

Jane try listening to the awful music.


jane Says:

Nole = 7 for 7 at net; 3 of 4 break points; 20 winners; 19 errors. Serve in the 60% range. Solid tennis. Not his best. Ben may be right, that this won’t get it done versus Rafa or Fed, though. Maybe not even Fish as Fish has more variety than Anderson. But Mr. A’s power tonight was fabulous.


dari Says:

If KA hadn’t fizzled on those break point chances it would jave been even.closer. but novak stepped up at the right times. Kid’s good
Not to mention better tennis –> better looking


Ben Pronin Says:

I think Djokovic still remembers 2008. I feel like that’s what was going on in the first set a little bit, also Anderson does have a tough serve to handle and Djokovic wasn’t returning at his best until the second set.


Dory Says:

Me just happy because Nole had a losing record against him.


jane Says:

Dory, stu, other Nole fans, you might like this article:

http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/42344354/ns/sports-tennis/


jane Says:

Dory I heard that bad techno crap – is that what you meant? Like computer generated? I was watching streaming so not sure if you heard the same.


Dory Says:

Yes that’s what I meant LOL.


Dory Says:

Sounds like some girl howling.


Kimberly Says:

Who wants o bet money fish requests a day match?


Kimberly Says:

And my guess is he will get it. Fish poses a small threat in the day. No chance at night. The court is much faster during the day and fish likes the heat.


Dory Says:

Would have to stay up all night tomorrow. Matches at 0:30 and 4:30 for Indian Standard Time.


jane Says:

Do Nole and Mardy have a day off now?


Ben Pronin Says:

If it’s a Fedal semi, doesn’t matter what Novak or Mardy request, they’re not getting the night spot.


Kimberly Says:

Yes nadal and fed play their respective qf matches and womens semis. Then both mens semis on fri I believe. Womens final sat. Mens sunday. I think.


jane Says:

That makes sense Kimberly, thanks. And yeah Ben, you’re right. Nole/Fish will be day if it’s a Fedal semi, but he’ll likely be day anyhow.


stu Says:

Aah new Tignor article, thanks jane! Will read first thing tom to start my day right!

Nole is now one of 7 players to have won >23 consecutive matches this decade. The others are Sampras, Roger, Rafa, Agassi, Courier and Thomas Muster. If this isn’t elite company, I don’t know what is :)


Dory Says:

Love that article. Thanks jane. Bonus points to Nole for his personality.


DC Says:

Nole is playing well. Lucky he hasn’t met a Nadal or Fed in good form.
He will soon, and his streak is over.


Dory Says:

“Ferrer, who lost just 12 games in his first three matches, said he was bothered by indigestion.

“A lot of pain in my stomach,” he said. “In the second set, I cannot run anymore.”

Source: http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/novak-djokovic-stays-unbeaten-in-2011-advances-to-key-biscayne-semifinal/2011/03/30/AFCz8E4B_story.html


Ben Pronin Says:

Federer has admitted to playing well in both the Australian Open and Indian Wells matches. At least at the AO I also felt like he was in good form but Novak still bested him. I also think Novak’s best tennis may have been at the AO, so far.

As for Nadal, he may not have been at his all-time best but he did say the final was his best played match in Indian Wells, despite the loss.

Also I would like to add that it seems to me that, while Nadal appears to be somewhat slighted by all the talk of Djokovic becoming number 1, it might be doing him some good. It’s no secret Nadal relishes the role of the underdog. And Djokovic is clearly the best hard court player atm and could be for a while. So he might now force Nadal to become even better, similar to way Federer did for grass and at least to some extent on hard.


jane Says:

stu @ 10:32 – nice stat. :)


johhny Says:

“Nole is playing well. Lucky he hasn’t met a Nadal or Fed in good form. He will soon, and his streak is over.”

I though he met Federer 3 times this year and Nadal once. Have I missed anything?


grendel Says:

http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/tennis/simon-reed/article/5892/

Qualified thumbs up for Federer from Oliver Reed. Simon, I mean, – and just so’s no misunderstandings, he’s only a journo, if quite a shrewd observer.


jane Says:

No johhny, you’re right. For his 3 trophies, he’s beaten Murray, Federer and Nadal in the 3 finals – the other 3 “top dogs,” arguably (although I know Soda is above Murray in the rankings currently). He played Fed in 2 semis. What I gather is that DC thinks that Federer, all 3 times he’s played Nole, and Nadal at IW were not in “good form”. I’d agree that Nadal wasn’t in his best form at IW, though he began strongly, but I don’t agree about Fed, who was in good form, imo, at IW and the AO, and really throughout Dubai, although in the second set of the final at Dubai, maybe he gave up the ghost a little?

Anyhow, no matter what people say or when it ends, Nole’s run has been excellent, amazing, top-notch. One third of his 22 wins have been over top ten players and other than 3 matches, he’s beaten players who are basically top 40 or higher in every match.

Tough test next versus an in form Fish, who will be at least 11th in the rankings next week, and higher if he beats Djoko.


jane Says:

Article for Djok fans “Why Djokovic is the best returner in tennis”

http://www.worldtennismagazine.com/archives/4285


jane Says:

^ Why I appreciate that article: when Djoko wins matches sometimes people say his opponent had a bad serving day, and of course, sometimes that’s perfectly true. But the fact that Nole is basically the more difficult guy to ace, the toughest returner, is often taken into account, although Gasquet said it during IW.


skeezerweezer Says:

^ just can’t see Nole NOT takin this title either. He only has to play Rafa or Fed this tourney, not both. Look at the draw again and someone tell me who is favored to win?

I thought like some of us that he would run out of gas physcally or mentally but….shhhaaaammonn! He had a great test yesterday, that was some great stuff by KA who came in on fire, but Nole brought the water to douse him out. What gets me is because he didn’t bagel someone some are thinking he has cracks in is armor, lol. Nole will be having a Fish fry tomorrow, and either have a Lindt Candy or be wearing Armani underwear the next day.


jane Says:

typoe – is often “not” taken into account, I meant. And also “most” difficult guy to ace – or surely one of .. not “more”


jane Says:

skeeze, lol, re: candy or underwear, I could see Nadal or Fed winning the tournament, even could see Fish ending Nole’s streak; personally thought there was at least one service game last night where he looked tired, but that could’ve been due to onslaught of Anderson’s power. No matter. Even if he does lose to Fish, Fed or anyone, the play has been great from Djoko’s side in 2011. That’s all.


dari Says:

Nice one, skeeze. i hope the lindt candy gets past simon today! and what a treat some armani underwear would be for him. won’t hold breath, but will be hopeful. i also need to start cheering for rafa and nole’s opponents now, its getting to be about that time!


dari Says:

or not, i may be a jinx!


jane Says:

Dari, not sure if you read the Simon Reed article grendel posted, but Reed implies if you’ re Fed &/or a Fed fan, you may want to cheer*for* Nole to keep winning, thus potentially affecting Rafa’s utter domination, thus potentially preventing Rafa’s overhaul of Fed’s records. ; ) just sayin … :)


Skeezerweezer Says:

dari,

you know I want Fed to win :)….just sayin…


dari Says:

totally jane, believe you me, i can turn into the biggest novak fan when it comes to matches between him and rafa. and even just in earlier rounds cause novak’s tennis is real pretty right now. i just meant its that time in this particular tournament, cause best case scenario- fish takes out novak, berdy takes out rafa!


dari Says:

and roger takes out gilles, of course. and berd, and then fish…
really no matter how you slice it, this one is tough for the candy man!


Seth Says:

Jane,

That is exactly why I’m pleased with Nole’s ascent so far. The more he wins, the more of a barrier he presents to Rafa and the smaller the chance that Rafa will surpass Fed’s records (GS titles, mainly). At this point, I don’t see Novak himself posing a threat to Fed’s records, and it just would mean something is existentially wrong with the universe if a guy with as weird a game as Rafa’s ends up eclipsing in the record books the guy who has played the game better than anyone.


contador Says:

agree with the simon reed article, Grendel.

it’s true, in my mind, i’m a protecter of federer’s records. i feel like sending djokovic “play well” cards too. it’s really between nole and rafa at this time with federer maybe sneaking one in. luck required.

miami draw is not conducive to federer’s “luck.” having to play a feisty opponent like simon (more foe than friend), then play rafa, then, likely nole…federer winning under these circumstances would be grounds for a big celebration for this fedfan. but luck would need to intervene and federer show up for each match with 2007 mental focus and form.

because federer is pushing 30 and in his decline, i don’t consider him in his “best form” in any match, especially vs a 23 year old rising star or a 24, 25 year old #1. it’s just how it is in tennis. that doesn’t mean he’s not enjoying tennis or on the right day he can’t find the confidence and form he once had. he’s still going deep at big tournys with few exceptions, won the tour final, and some other tournaments.

best luck to federer in miami. love the fed -”SWISS, tennis player.” : )


jane Says:

Seth, I see both Fed and Rafa as great players, and was just teasing dari, though Reed’s article has a point w.r.t. to records and domination. Rafa’s different style, with the left hand switch, and crazy-good buggy whip forehand is good for the game, imo, adds variety/personality. Not everyone can have that “liquid whip” forehand Roger has, in fact it’s unique to him!

Now what to call Nole’s crosscourt forehand, which has developed real nicely methinks?


dari Says:

novak has superb technical skills on groundstrokes- ppl talk about fed being pretty- its really graceful, so you don’t think about form or at least i dont, but with novak you see perfect technique and its just- nice. and imitable.
on the other hand- rafa’s strokes “dont try this at home”!


dari Says:

time for a loud match!


jane Says:

dari ^ lol, yep should be LOUD.


contador Says:

gotta disagree a little about djokovic’s shots appearing imitable, unless you have serious flexibility of an gymnast with acrobatic skills plus killer speed and reflexes, add in the confidence of a champion – nothing in his game makes me think “oh that looked easy.” when he can do the splits on the run, reaching for the ball and hit that forehand deep dtl or cc..i shake my head in amazement. imo, both rafa and nole have that “don’t try this at home,” type of play but in different ways.

federer hit breathtaking shots but made it look easy. no sweat. federer’s serve is the “liquid whip.” but it’s a natural easy motion, not like a cilic serve or rafa who sort of wobbles with his balance while setting up to serve and has a look of painful concentration on his face before he serves. nole has the ball bouncing to organize and focus, if interrupted starts the whole process over. all are effective. it’s a matter of preference. i like federer’s serve, simple (not really simple) and beautiful. but he admits thinking about what they are doing for dinner when he knows he’s serving it “down the T” and misses now. “not robo cop.”


dari Says:

not on the stretch or run for sure contador, but a regular shot- no, we’re not gonna hit like novak, don’t get me wrong, but if you wanted to imitate somebody’s backhand mechanics, he’s your dude.


contador Says:

and btw, my new fave serve looks unnatural and impossible. the pogo serve. hips jutted over the baseline with such a fast wind up that it’s nuts. alexandr dolgpolov. not sure he’s headed for the top with what he has but he’s sure fun to watch. liked him best in dubs.


dari Says:

just realised who petkovic is reminded me of- julia gardner


dari Says:

i mean jennifer gardner
everything about alex d is don’t try this at home


contador Says:

i can’t hit a two hander backhand dari! taken tennis lessons along the and i’ve tried. some have tried forcing me, starting with my dad. i’m too right handed or it just feels better to hit a one-hander and pretend i’m henin. : )


dari Says:

really, contador? well then lucky you. i can mostly only hit slice or spin on onehanded back hand. can’t hit through- never try maybe i should. i got a new racket yesterday :)
does your one hander have much on it?


contador Says:

you mean jennifer garner, ben afflecck’s wife / actress? yes…petko looks like her. i like petkovic “auf” “auf”


Polo Says:

Is there are really good female tennis player out there right now? Serena is out of the question because of her litany of medical problems. I am not so impressed with Petkovic. So much to still improve in her game: serve, court movement.


contador Says:

my backhand used to. it was my best and favorite shot. i’d go to sleep thinking about it and couldn’t wait to hit it again. but i don’t get to play tennis much anymore. i lived in portland then and played weekly, indoors. never was any good at serving. had a great forehand too. but skiing is the sport i do in idaho. tennis is what i watch now. maybe play more – if i move to rancho mirage…. ;)

streaming this match: i think this is going 3. maria is not giving up.


Polo Says:

Is there a (not are)..


dari Says:

polo- kim? but she has her days
petko should serve better no doubt, take advantage of her great shape in her movement.
nobody like serena for sure.


Kimberly Says:

im a lefty with a two hander


dari Says:

woz is good, seriously, just not aggressive.
so many have like a glaring hole-mentally/tactically or physically. makes for unpredictable matches.


Polo Says:

dari- Kim wins a lot almost by default because nobody out there is good enough. And as you said, she has her days. She could just as easily lose to anybody on any given day. Serena is the last of the great female tennis players. None of the current active players could ever be mentioned in the same breadth as Graf, Navratilova and Evert. Not even on what I would consider second tier greats like Seles and Hingis (neither of them have a complete set of majors).


dari Says:

lol on dreaming of your backhand, contador.
problem is, im too conditioned to calling a one-handed bh my “lazy shot”- what i hit when i don’t move my feet enough for two hands. we’ll see.
kimberly- rafa much?


Polo Says:

This match looks like it is going into a third set. And if it does, Maria will win. Petkovic is playing like she has finally come down to earth.


Polo Says:

Wozniacki is so defensive that she will always be at the mercy of an aggressive opponent. Pit her against an aggressive player who happens to play well and Woz will lose. Lucky for Woz, there aren’t many good aggressive female players out there. That, to me, explains why Woz is number one.


dari Says:

wow, a bagel would be nice for maria!


Kimberly Says:

dari—i thought of that! ALthough rafa is sort of a righty that plays left (ambidextrous?) and i am a hardcore lefty. Whever I play someone new their first words are…oh your a lefty. Never think of it myself.


dari Says:

baagellll for maria!
isn’t she lefty-ish or something, she switches hands when she can’t reach


jane Says:

Sharapova has 3 of the 4 slams, with AO, USO and Wimbledon, but since her shoulder injury/surgery, she just hasn’t been the same. But for a while there she was playing great tennis; especially during her AO win she looked dominant – beat Henin handily.


jane Says:

contador, “nothing in his game makes me think “oh that looked easy.” I get your point. IMO there are a few things he seems to do with ease: get back into position quickly, hit deep into the court regularly and redirect the ball fluidly. The redirecting aspect of his game seems like second nature.


Dory Says:

People saying Federer in form when defeated thrice by Djoko but Nadal not in form when defeated once are either clueless or conveniently crediting Nadal once again.


jane Says:

Maria going for a double bagel finale! Wow.


jane Says:

Dory, Fed wasn’t in best form at Dubai. But the thing with Fed now is he loses focus, evident in the second set at AO and the third set at IW. Meanwhile Nole’s been very focused. But I do think Fed served well and played aggressively through most of IW & AO matches, thus is “good form”. Also think Rafa was in “great form” first set and a half or so versus Nole but then lost his serve and focus.


jane Says:

Ah maybe just a bagel and breadstick, providing Maria holds to finish…


The fighter Says:

wats wrong wid petkovic?


Polo Says:

Federer has not been in his best form for a long time now. His best form is behind him. He can still play well, very, very well but hardly like the guy from two or three years ago. Age has caught up with him. As jane says, he loses focus, something you don’t see when he was at his best.


dari Says:

ahhh, maria!
broken when serving for match :(


jane Says:

Dory, lol, you’re right – always drama with sharapova’s matches. Now, after cruising, she suddenly loses serve.


dari Says:

Dory was it you who said “dramapova”?
you got that right! nothing ever straight forward!


Dory Says:

Btw surely everyone has by now read: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATP_World_Tour_records ? Makes me feel soooo good to see RF’s name everywhere.


dari Says:

ok, staved off more drama, good!
not petko dance today.
now win the title, maria!


Dory Says:

Yes finally she’s won quickly. I was fearing it would go to 6-6 then tiebreak then she would scream out the match. LOL.


jane Says:

Maria in a big final – haven’t seen that for a while, I don’t think.

Have to go to class grrrr. Will try to peak at scores in break. Enjoy Fed/Simon!


contador Says:

jane-

watching nole go from legs tangled and backwards facing hitting a huge serve return and having the ability to in a split second get back into position isn’t fliud and easy looking but it’s incredable. it’s obviously not something that appears like i could try it. and he hits a clean deep winner either backhand or forehand often times from a splitz position and is back to neutral. it’s a “wow” and maybe second nature for HIM but like nadal, it’s nothing short of unnatural to someone like me. add my new fave pogodoll to that unnatural with a “wow, i could never do that or even imagine it in my dreams.”

watching federer, i think , okay those shots looked easy, even to an armchair observer (but far from it). but he has no bolero whip forehand, no pogo serve, no turn around split second recovery from a splitz position…also from my own limited tennis playing experience, the ease with which djoko redirects the ball has to come from his balance and speed which appears as unattainable and as subtle (not subtle) as a usain bolt sprint while applying recovery balance of bode miller.

but there is no denying what nole, rafa, or dolgo do with a racket on a tennis court is natural to them.

andy murray, what i watched of him on a practice court and have seen of him at his best on TV plays more natural and subtle tennis. he appears to lope around the court and makes getting to shots look easy not only for him but gives the impression anyone could do it. ( far from true ) imo, in that regard, he’s more like federer without being a copy of federer.

just an opinion.

oh no, simon v federer…..yikes. it’s windy too.


jane Says:

Yes, conty, see what you mean about Murray; for me it’s with his hands, how he has that natural flick of the wrist, and how he gets to balls gingerly. I see Nole’s redirection in the same light though, like he does it with ease, that it’s natural – saw that at times with Anderson last night. But it’s just perspective / opinion. I know what you mean about the “wow” “don’t try this at home” factor, but Fed’s easy-looking shots have a “wow” factor too. Especially if he’s thinking about dinner while hitting them ;)


margot Says:

Oh jane, “natural flick of the wrist” perhaps u have identified why Andy gets those damn wrist injuries
:(


DjokovicFan Says:

Djokovic will be no1 very soon :)
