    Men's Olympic Bronze Medal Match: Del Potro vs Djokovic

    Nole needs soul searching. He was excellent in his own service games, but couldn't break. Rattled when broken and then donated. Couldn't mount a comeback. That said, Del Potro did play his heart out today. That forehand showed no tiredness. I don't think he had many UEs? Nole did defend...

    Men's Olympic Bronze Medal Match: Del Potro vs Djokovic

    Commentators are saying Del Potro is taking a minute between serves (that would make him slower than Novak) b/c he is apparently exhausted.

    Men's Olympic Bronze Medal Match: Del Potro vs Djokovic

    Both hitting very clean so far. 2 love-hold service games.

    Men's Olympic Bronze Medal Match: Del Potro vs Djokovic

    It's just starting now. Does Del Potro have much left in the tank? The one thing you can always count on Novak for is his fitness (nowadays, you know what I mean). Nole needs to win this and the US Open!!!

    Olympics 2012 SF: (2) Novak Djokovic vs (3) Andy Murray:

    Can today's Djokovic still beat Federer at two match points down 5-3 in the fifth set, or even Tsonga after being four match points down? The pressure got to him at the end. His service game has been stellar for the entire set (did he even go to deuce once?), only to go out like that. Been...

    Olympics 2012 SF: (2) Novak Djokovic vs (3) Andy Murray:

    Absolutely crucial for Djoko, this service game. He's been playing so well in his. A travesty that he hasn't broken Murray.

    Olympics 2012 SF: (2) Novak Djokovic vs (3) Andy Murray:

    Second set deuce at 4-4, Murray serving. You can tell Djoko really wants to capitalize on his momentum and break here.

    Olympics 2012 SF: (2) Novak Djokovic vs (3) Andy Murray:

    Nole's service games in the 2nd set have been great. Despite the low first-serve percentage (feels higher than Wimbledon SF though), I think it's been two straight love-holds.

    Olympics 2012 SF: (2) Novak Djokovic vs (3) Andy Murray:

    Djoko is not serving that well, but his net game isn't bad.

    Olympics 2012 SF: (2) Novak Djokovic vs (3) Andy Murray:

    Another love-hold service game for Murray. In his last Djoko had to save break points.

    Olympics 2012 SF: (2) Novak Djokovic vs (3) Andy Murray:

    Love-hold service game for Murray. Looking sharp. The crowd didn't seem that partisan when the players walked on court.

    Olympics 2012 SF: (2) Novak Djokovic vs (3) Andy Murray:

    Djokovic didn't get to the court until it was 6-1, 3-0 in the Serena-Azarenka match. Cutting it close.

    Olympics 2012 SF: (2) Novak Djokovic vs (3) Andy Murray:

    Murray turned a new leaf this year at the AO, taking Djoker to five tight sets. Actually, looking at H2H records, I am surprised how infrequently Murray has played against the top 3. Djokovic has played Nadal some 35 times and Federer 27 times, but only 13 times against Murray. In contrast...

    Djoker Wimby '12 SF quotes - Not playing/feeling well

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ablsYo-kjAA The post-match interview. Does sound a bit nasal. Very gracious though. Acknowledged that the 15- or 20-min drop in energy level at the end of the third set and the beginning of the fourth cost him the game today.
