I definitely agree with the sentiment expressed.
Some of the comments are spot on
here is one pearl
I like this statemnet the most:
And we are assured no one’s going to hit the eject button during tomorrow’s final.
Yeah, please, let's have a good fight tomorrow!!
According to the Swiss Press, Djokovic suffered from a throat infection that didn't heal properly.
Poor baby. I actually like Djokovic and his game (aside from his ball bouncing). However retiring like the way he did is not the sign of a warrior. Just because the match is not going your way, and that you are not playing your best or feeling your best, doesn't mean you should just give up.
"(Imitating Novak would be easy. Just bend over in exhaustion, take a few deep breaths, fall to your knees a few times, look distressed and then signal to the chair umpire. That’s Novak. You don’t even need to do the ball bounce routine.)"
Novak HAS retired several times when winning.
The article says he hasn't.
In which matches?
only point is he is very young and achieve things very very fast.. look at him after AO very tired (just first tourney of year) and after IW win. He has so much time after first round lost in Miami masters but you never know what he going on with his breathing illness.
i don't know several, but the last one i can think of is the latest Davis Cup match versus Nikolay Davydenko to keep Serbia in.
He was up 2-1 or 2-0 in sets, but he was losing in the set, and then just retired out of nowhere, although he was sick before, i don't quite get it, since he was playing okay, and he played doubles the day before too.
