    French open will now be interesting

    It didn't go as per script. Djokovic would have won the US open after a tough match against Thiem/Medvedev and then gave a half effort at French. Nadal who is going full guns at French, would have run away with the title. BUt now that Djoker is out at US Open, he would be angry and unleash...

    Djokovic s supreme control

    I'm noticing that in the past one year or so Djokovic hardly celebrate grand slam win. Any other player would get crazy after winning a slam particularly in a 5th set. But not Djokovic. My theories for this are - Extreme control of emotions - Supreme confidence - Maturity over the years
