    2 only, it's just the ridiculous amount of times both has been broken from good positions which makes it more frustrating.

    3rd MP.

    Australian Open 2009 - Semi with Verdasco went on till the early hours of the morning. Stop whining.

    If you want to whine then ***** at Bartoli cos she is really irritating me right now.

    Yeah, but Gov had SP's in first set, but missed them all and lost the set, then she had 3 MP's and missed them all and lost the match. And she had BP's in almost every game on Bartolis serve.

    What's worse is that Bartoli has the highest IQ of any tennis pro. I'm definitely not smart enough to see why.

    He got a day before the final at AO, so that is hardly bad scheduling.

    Anyway, the nightmare is over. Hope Djoker takes to court soon.

    Federer would probably had enough time to advance to the quarters in a MS1000 in that choking of a match.

    It's obvious-

    -IQ isn't the best descriptor of a player's 'intelligence', nor does it necessarily correlate to success on the tennis court

    -We don't know enough about MBartoli's IQ to judge its credibility

    -We don't know the IQs of the other tennis pros

    and lots of other reasons.

    Now let's see if DGoffin can pummel NDjokovic in the same way that DGoffin pummeled RFederer in the first 22 games of the 4th round of Roland Garros 2012. :p

    But someone with an IQ of 168 shouldn't act like a total moron on court. Cause it's not very smart in the long run to do so.

    I hope Goffin brings his A game today, iv watched him a few times before and he's not bad on a good day and produces some very watchable tennis, lets hope he doesnt get the nerves from playing the serbian retriever.

    The ballboy had a mishap with the picking up the ball. You could see it just off-screen on the footage but they didnt focus on it.

    Once both players get the blood flowing warmer, this game should pick up with intensity.

    I dont think you've got anything to worry about. Goffin is a good player and he might take a set but he's not anywhere near the fitness level that Djokovic is and im predicting a possible bagel or breadstick in the 4th

    Why does everyone assume Djokovic likes heavy conditions? He nearly lost to Tsonga and Seppi last year when it was heavy. Like Nadal I think he prefers it when the sun is out.

    Never have been overwhelmed by Nole's passing shots. They are obviously good but he's not in Federer's league (is now) and especially not in Nadal's league.

    Yeh probably, though specifically against Nadal would probably prefer it to be damp and heavy.

    Goffin is playing a good match rightnow. Nole was redirecting the ball quite nicely in that rally but got outplayed anyway.

    I want this done in a hour and a half.

    That's why I'm upset.

    Because TW users think it's his best chance to beat Nadal when it's heavy.

    Doesn't mean he likes it though.

    Didn’t he have to retire from a game the last time he played, because of dizziness?

    I absolutely love seeing Dolgopolov losing today. Getting sick and tired of seeing fans fall in love with losers because "their game is ideal".

    Goffin needs to know his role and let Novak win this without any trouble.

    Just denying inevitability, that' all.

    Even if the IQ was a fair indicator of 'intelligence', that doesn't necessarily mean a person must act in a certain way, nor does it mean that everyone fits into a certain class. Outliers exist, as well as all of the points I mentioned previously.

    I can't wait to see RNadal against MKlizan and potentially LRosol (if Loser Rosol makes it that far). LRosol only won one game against NDjokovic on slow hard-courts (Miami 2013). LRosol might do even worse against the greatest clay-courter in world history. :p

    Nadal has already beaten Nole 4 times at RG, as 6-1 6-3 6-0 has eloquently demonstrated through his avatar, but will he make it 5?
