Novak Djokovic - 9 minutes of ARGUING with a journalist - Rome 2019

Well said Nole. (y)

Is that Ben Rothenberg who was arguing with Novak in this clip? He is a jerk. Always looking and fishing for stories. Needs a shut up call everytime he opens his mouth. I think he mentioned this exchange in his podcast too (unless it was some other time) where he interviewed Kyrgios.
 
I really wish they bring about some changes in Novak's attire. AO was brilliant, not much after that. Is it just me or are the designs going downhill for everyone? I guess they don't have anything new to show after all these years.

By the way @Hitman, what do you think of tomorrow's final? Think Djoker has still got enough to take the bull by the horns? He has had tougher opponents and lengthier matches.
What I posted earlier

This has to be Nadal's best chance to get a win. He could not have asked for a more ideal scenario. Novak has played back to back three set matches against two very in form players, he has also played the last three matches in the evening so will have to adjust to the day conditions, and finally, he will have the least amount of time to rest and recover. Nadal has been efficient, yes, he has not been tested, but he will have the fresher legs out there tomorrow.

Djokovic's forehand is working very well out there and that spells danger for Nadal if Djokovic can get over the tiredness factor. Nadal serving well doesn't matter against Djokovic, Novak will return just fine, but the question is can Nadal look to exploit the slightly dead legs tomorrow by being able to play from the middle and move the ball to the sides.

If Nadal loses this convincingly still, he will have very little chance to change it around in Paris.
 
Just like I thought. A very balanced view, as always. I think Rafa can win. A loss for Novak won't be troublesome for you and others as he has done very well after a patchy period for quite a while. Nadal's return to form will make this the most interesting RG since 2011.

Nadal certainly has his chances tomorrow. Even if he loses, if it is a competitive match, Nadal will have something to take to RG. He simply cannot afford to get stream rolled here, Djokovic wouldn't want it either, but he has the rational explanation of having played a lot more these past few days to soften the psychological impact of a loss here. He will be liking his chances already for RG, he has been battle hardened now, a win over Nadal just makes it the perfect preparation should it happen. Between the two, IMO Nadal needs this win more.

Agreed :)
