    Nishikori had two BP. Saved by Nole.

    I seriously cannot believe that people actually buy that Cvac is injured. He does this sort of garbage every single time he is losing or down in a match. He has done it his entire career,and this year is no different. Have no fear Djokotards,he will win the title tomorrow without dropping a set in the final.

    ^You sure about that? Federer will give him a tough match, perhaps beating him.

    Go to Uncyclopedia and go to Djoko's page.


    Nole is spraying errors too much.

    See, now when you neutralise both Valencia and Basel to the alignment of London's court speed and balls you can judge how the top are playing going into the top 8 tournament

    Del Potro hitting forehands like a boss, peaking at the right time.
    Djokovic struggling against Nishikori.
    Federer doing the bare minimum to win.

    Nole cruising for a losing. Good. I cannot stand that "there's no way this peon is beating me" smirk he always has on his face.

    Sad to see Novak injured. A fit Novak would eat players like Nishikori or whatever for breakfast.

    Nole down 0-3. Kei's gonna ruin the gluten-free diet by handing him some baked goods.

    Such a shame. Both Murray and Djokovic are injured. I guess Federer and Nadal can win something now.

    Wow, I turned off for 5 minutes after Nishikori won the tie-break and now Djokovic is 0-3 down and it's 30-30. Can someone tell me how did this happen?

    Djokovic is injured, there is no other way. Nishikori is just playing Novak when the entire atp would have preferred to play him -- injured.

    Nishikori playing better. Surprised Novak hasn't retired while behind.

    Double break for Nishikori.

    Nole looks out of sorts, but Nishikori is playing some good tennis. Gotta give him some credit, especially when you think about that amazing point he won to prevent being down a triple MP in set 2.

    Thx.

    Injured or not, Djokovic has to watch to to AVOID A BAGEL FROM NISHIKORI.

    Just think about it, people.

    Who the f*ck is KEI NISHIKORI ?


    Anyway what injury does Novak have ? is it his back again ?

    if so then he is f*cked, 2012 he will drop outta top 10 ....

    I suppose Nadal will be happy , he can fool himself into believing he's gotten over the 7-0 rec against Djokovic.
