Ive met Djok. He is a cunt, he comes across as a cunt. But he took the time to say hello. Come on Fed, just 1 more. My club is hoting a pre Wimbledon tourno this year. The LTA took it away afew years ago but its back. Lat winner was Tsonga in like 2012 or something.

Fed beat Djokovic earlier in two sets. It was sublime tennis… incredible sportsman.

Served his way out of every spot of bother, was very impressive. Djok was off colour though. Had 7 break points and didn't convert a single one. Fed had 2 and converted both. Clinical.

Nadal 6-1 down in the tie break against Berlocq and wins the set 9-7.

Djok and Murray going at it on SS3.

edit - Murray looks fucked in the 3rd. To be fair to him, two and a half hours in the sun is more than a normal Scot gets in a fucking lifetime.

Djokovic just too good right now. If he goes on to win Roland garros it's fair to ask the question whether he was better than Federer in his prime, after a few more eventual grand slam wins.

Crowds don't like him, they love Fed and Nadal.

He can get tetchy with them and himself. Twice in miami he smashed his racket into pieces.

Tennis fans just want to watch as much tennis as possible for their expensive ticket price and will always support the underdog. In their prime Fed and Nadal both had the exact same treatment against anyone outside the top 5. When Djok has finished building his legacy and coming to the end of his career, the former world number 1 will be cheered on by the masses again.

Ferrer, is like Berdych and Roanic. You can be sure they always choke against the top 4.

Djok will prevail.

First time Murray has ever beaten him on clay. Nadal was shocking. Djok is too good.Murray will push him better.

My clubs hosting a tournament next week, free entry in the early rounds, should be some great tennis for anyine in SW.

https://www.lta.org.uk/major-events/aegon-trophy-series/aegon-surbiton-trophy/ James ward playing. The tournaments been away for 4 years, the last winner was Tsonga.

Also there is Wimbledon Qualifying at Roehampton soon. Thats another freebie.

Murray will push no-one.

He's also a true choker against the very best.

Your comments would be true had he not beaten the very best TWICE to win Grand Slams.

Considering that opponent is the world number 1 and dominated tennis for the last 2 years, he's done well to push him enough today to take this match to a second day and a possible 5 set thriller.
