Most manly celebration in a long long time
It was incredibly excessive and stupid but I won't bash him for it because he had just won a 6 hour match.
Same with Nadal's celebration after winning the 4th set. Has that ever happened? A guy dropping on his knees when there is a set of tennis still to be played.
That's a cool story bro.
Nadal was celebrating after almost every point as it were match point towards the later stages of the 4th set.
It's so valiant how Nadal willed himself to get up after dropping to his knees or Nole having the energy to rip his shirt off........
Nadal was overjoyed that he had managed to avoid going out in 4 sets for the first time in their last 3 Grand Slam finals! :wink:
Thought both guys' reactions (Nadal to winning the 4th, Joker to winning the match) were awesome, and totally fitting with the testosterone-laden aura of the match. Shame the tennis wasn't that great mind.
I really like Djokovic and was pulling for him today. However the way he celebrates in front of his camp after he wins a match always creeps me out. He bellows like a bull; his face goes red and crazy-looking; he arches his body and screams at the sky. I guess that shows how much he cares about his wins, though.
What I really like is Djokovic giving away his racket. I dont expect players to do this after every match or even after winning a random tournament, but after winning a grand slam I think it's awesome especially if it goes to a kid.
I think that should become a tradition at grand slam tournaments ... the winner should give away all the sticks in his bag to kids in the audience.
So from a total Federer fan ... well done Djokovic, You're a class act.
P.S. I want more impressions
I can live without the Tim Tebow-esque Jesus stuff myself. Talk about creepy.
What does he do? All I've ever seen him do is cross himself, which is hardly "creepy" levels of religious expression. Have I missed something?
I usually hate Djoker's celebrations, but I loved what he did after he won last night.
Well, one would expect a huge reaction after winning a 6 hour match. It's still hard to fathom how he won it. He was so close to defeat...
I could do without the idiotic ripping off the shirt and howling deal. Show some class.
But that was an awesome match. Just incredible.
The combo of Rafas 4th set celebration and Djok's shirtless roar were hilarious. Anything goes in the final.
Yes. It was becoming quite annoying. Nadal was acting like he had just won Wimbledon after winning every point, and that his pet just died after losing every point. It was very much a drama queen performance.
Happy Nole won.
(And by the way, Nadal needs to take lessons from Federer on how to roar.)
I loved the big T round his neck and how he made the sign of the T so often, the baby jesus surely cared about this match.
Classless. I really hope he doesn't try that at Wimbledon.
Was justified considering the circumstance, both players were celebrating like crazy at times, was a really great match to watch.
i was fine with it. if nadal can do the lawnmower, then djoko can do his best hulk impression
You guys who are bashing Djoko for celebrating like a beast = SMH
You'd do exactly the same if you played +10 hours over 2 matches.
I loved it!
This This This, i'll never get why this is a problem lol. Everyone has their way of expressing how much a win means...some cry, some chest beat, scream, do lawn mowers, tsonga has his own dance ffs lol.
^ I still don't get it.
What is a Nadal lawn mower?
Perfect, yet natural.
It's strange how touchy people get with celebrations. After winnng a match like that, I wouldn't even be shocked if a player, in a flash of momentary madness, decided to display his full erect manhood while roaring at 100 decibels. What do you want him to do? Curtsy to the crowd and leave?
When I saw the celebration I was a bit shocked, but of course, the guy has just played a 6 hour match, come back from the dead against a guy who had also come back to get on top. The sense of overwhelming achievement in that moment would have been absolutely immense, and I would even say almost beyond Djokovic's control emotional control. I think it's good because it shows you just how tough you have to be to win these tournaments sometimes.
It's when he takes his hand, gets low on his knees and proceeds to fist the air downwards as if to start up a lawnmower or a chainsaw. I'll try find a picture.
I agree. I loved both celebrations.
You just didn't like it because your name is Sid Vicious and Novak pulled a Hulkster on you.
If your name were Sid Justice instead, you might have enjoyed it a bit more.
I thought it was better than Federer falling to the ground like a faker in his AO 2007 win over Gonazalez.
Loved both Nadal and Nole's celebrations. To hell with stodgy, classy, British crap. Wimbledon sucks already. If it didn't have the name & history they wouldn't even stop there.
Dude, Sid Vicious was the bassist from the Sex Pistols. I don't watch WWF or WWE ..whatever its called.
He was like Hulk Hogan. I'm surprised he didn't cup his ear to the crowd.
That kind of stuff is appreciated at the AO ... and even in New York. They wouldn't dare do that stuff at Wimbledon or the French.
hahahaha man that would certainly be a match no-one would forget about :lol:
Where the heck did this come from? What has Wimbledon got to do with a discussion of Djokovic and Nadal's post-match celebrations??
The celebrations were appropriate for the situation. It was a battlefield out there last night. They were treating it like a boxing match, so it pretty much fit.
You have never seen tebowing? I though it was practically a worldwide phenomenon by now. The internet is full of people posing "tebowing", it is like planking but dumber.
Stupid celebration. Goes with his personality.
It's good for the sport.
Remember when the NFL outlawed endzone celebrations for a while? Things got so dull (with people calling it the "No Fun League") the league reversed itself and allowed them again.
As much as I call him Cockyvic it wasn't too bad. He didn't have to yell as long as he did, but given the match it was understandable. They went 6 hours, had Nadal won, he would have been going crazy too.
the match was played with a lot of emotion, energy, intensity and courage, it is just self-boosting in celebrating every point won.........
Do people want emotionless robots playing out there? Novak seems like enough of a machine during a match that it's actually quite nice to see him letting loose at the end, even if it seemed borderline caveman-psychopathic. Nadal's an emotional player, but that's why the fans like him. The lawnmower at the end of the 4th was perfectly fine.
Really, as long as the players are not being disrespectful to their opponents, letting them have their emotional moments is an absolute positive for the sport, since it humanizes them for the fans and gives people reasons to care. People don't only root for and against so-and-so's game, but for and against so-and-so the person.
To me the coolest celebrations ever were from Ivan Lendl. old school,
roll in make it happen and roll out, never even raise your arms, show them you expected to win the entire time.
Ivan Lendl was the truth, that is how a man does it.
No doubt. Looked like he could of played another set.:twisted: Maybe his girlfriend likes that kind of stuff.
i have to see a Nadal lawnmower gif!!
You and Snoop Doggy Dogg are brothers of the same mind, unblind. I would put Walter Payton and Barry Sanders in your league, too. Maybe Sampras, Edberg and Wilander.
The celebration is GRAND! I'm glad, after the win, he doesn't change into a dandy letter jacket like a former number one.
