Based on the first game I predict Nole will win the next 10 Slams
Novak going 5 meters behind line to return 2nd serve WTF.
A conservative estimate.
Djoko breaks! Will win MC, Madrid, Rome and RG.
Ljubicic in da house watching Djokovic.
He wants to be #1
Get help Donaldson. Probably better than what Goffin did.
4-0, I know it's early and Lajovic kinda sucks at the moment but already you can see a huuuge improvement compared to Miami.
Whoa! Double break against Lajovic! Nole is new GOAT
Lajovic gifting alot but Djoko doing his thing. Looking stable. Great inside in FH couple of points ago.
Novak shouldn't let go off Vajda until his retirement.
Just saw quite a few 197 kph serves in the last game. He'll be incredibly dangerous if he finally has a serve once again. 5-0 over Serbian imposter LaNotDjokovic who has had some semblance of form recently.
I suspect Vajda would like that in writing but already I can sense he brings an atmosphere of calmness and familiarity to Novak's game. Something Novak shouldn't have been so quick to dispense with in the first place.
Bagel for Lajovic.Djokovic is playing very well.
Bagels are always nice
Contemplated on betting against Novak but didn't because there was a chance of Lajovic throwing the match due to their nationality/Vajda bribing.
Inb4 Lajovic starts GOATing.
Well, sometimes the coaching change can be good (though firing off an entire team is still excesive). In this instance however, clearly the opposite is the case. I agree, Novak already looks more sure of himself, he was lost on court at IW/Miami.
Yeah.He is playing well.I will support him for first time in the QF if reaches them.But first he needs to defeat Boric and Thiem
Lajovic is an error machine gifting so many points to Novak but maybe that's the effect Novak has on him and which Novak has had on so many opponents when at the height of his form.
Its an insane draw, but he looks more than game for the task.
Everyone's out to watch Nole? ARV smiling.
The whole tour seems to be at the match. Coric, Ramos, Garcia Lopez, Ljubicic.
I'm pretty sure that's an oxymoron, however you look at it.
Too early to say still, Coric will be the real test.
Not sure what you mean, but you better call Saul
pathetic from berdych losing to an injury player
This. I’ve actually been watching. Lajovic...well, there’s the old saying. Nothing nice to say, don’t say anything...
No need for legal advice here. Google should be able to help you though.
Serve and volley from Novak, great to see.
We will see.I dont know how good Boric is on clay and Thiem is coming from injury so Novak can reach QF.If he beats Boric and Thiem this will be very good for him after the IW and Miami performance
He looks all crisp and clean and energetic and fresh! Love that red and white outfit, too. Great playing so far.
Coric has become a beast and the return game he had on display at IW/Miami will transfer to clay to go with his superlative serve game. Coric v Djoko is just a huge match. We'll see with Thiem coming off a fractured ankle, but Nole could be facing the three top clay courters of 2018 just to reach SF at Monte Carlo.
Is he coming back at last?
Great hitting from Djole. Refreshing
We cant decide from one match.Remember the last year he demolished Thiem in Rome and people were saying he is back but it didnt work out as people thought.After the MC is over we can probably conclude whether he is returning to his form
As @Doctor/Lawyer Red Devil told me, even a Djokovic in the form of his life would see this as an incredibly tough draw.
Novak is gonna run out of gas no? Six games in after the bagel
Also, AO. People forget that he beat the 21st seed in 3 easy sets before the Chung defeat. I won’t be judging until he goes deep in a few tournaments. Some of these guys in early rounds are really crap with no weapons. Lajovic is one. Sorry but it’s true.
LOL. You can always count on countrymen whenever you need a boost or a win.
What's Raonic doing against that player?
Expecting ten new threads from Cockney and 5555 in less than an hour.
Had treatment for a blister on his hand I think. Might be affecting him, might not.
Shades of old Novak on some of the big points, rallying machine.
Trying not to lose I guess. For someone who reach the semis in IW, and almost beat DelPo in Miami, this would be quite bad. I know it's clay but still
Lajovic's second set hopes just slipped a notch with this break.
plays better than a month ago but .......
Yes.He wasnt playing so bad at AO actually.Dont know why he didnt do anything in IW and Miami.His draw at MC is very hard - Coric,Thiem,Nadal.I think he can defeat Coric and possibly Thiem
No butts, he certainly is. However that still isn't saying much given how terrible he was at IW/Miami.
Separate names with a comma.
