    Lol more excuses Djokotards? Kei played better today and that's that. I'm afraid poor Novak will never return to being the "son of god" XD

    Very true, I was shocked that Bagdatis didn't finish out the match. Nadal was the worst, making more finals than ever, but not finishing it off except for at FO.

    Whatever! Djokovic is the dominant #1 because he's far superior to the rest of the field, talent wise. Not because Nadal is declining or has become a heartless coward. Nadal had his time to enjoy being dominant last year when NOBODY on the tour was playing well. Now Nadal can get a taste of a real rivalry.
    Djokovic blew away Federer and Murray back to back at the AO in straight sets. He crushed Nadal 6 times on all surfaces. You need a reality check mate. Djokovic is a super talented player who has stepped up his game and is the best player walking the earth by far. You can ridicule him and disrespect his competition all you like but it's the very same competition which Federer and Nadal enjoyed dominating against for years. Don't try to discredit Djokovic for doing the same thing.
    As for choking, it's part of the game. It simply means you're not mentally strong enough to compete, and as everybody knows, mental strength is half the battle.

    Yeah and as many would say, a big choke from Federer as usual which allowed Nadal to lift the trophy yet again. LOL!

    Yep, Kei played better today. But is he a better player than Djokovic you think based on their respective accomplishments, rafabull?

    Were you in a coma during the Djokovic/Nadal matches in IW and Miami? LOL! Completely outplayed Djokovic until the choke? How about Djokovic raising his level and starting to give Nadal all sorts of trouble in many of those grinding rallies and forcing Nadal to go for winners and bigger serves?
    As for Roger choking? That's the story of his career. LOL!
    Baggy lost because he's not good enough. All this choking BS is out the door. You've never played a sport in your life it seems.:)
