Why would any Nadal fan fear Djokovic? If they meet in the semis, Nadal will beat him.
Though I do wish that turns out to be true, if there's anyone that Nadal needs to fear from his own half, it's Djokovic. Rejuvenated Djokovic in the semis will be reaally tough to beat. I am surprised people have forgotten this quickly how good Djokovic can be

Undoubtedly true, but it's not saying much. He has no one in his half, and I include Del Po because Del Po is a mental poodle when facing Rafa. Djokovic isn't ready to beat Nadal in a slam semi and I absolutely favor Nadal in that match. He's coming off a slam last month, Djoker hasn't done anything in years. Those are the facts and those are the parameters under which the match will be played.

Maybe, I don't pay much attention to on-court massages. Not the place for it as far as I'm concerned.
I have no problem with it as long as it's not used to disrupt the opponent's rhythm or called at a questionable time. Then I think it's abuse. I know players need to physios out every now and then when there may be some niggling pain they are having or something.

I'd associate atleast a single point penalty with it, just to weed out the phony ones to a degree.

Seventh match at this Wimbledon for Gulbis (five of them in BO5), he could surrender physically at any moment, sadly. Don't want ninja to win this one with this MTO crap.

It's funny how Nishikori handled Nick's serve pretty comfortably, but is really struggling with Ernesto's.

Unlike Zverev, who looked like he has no brain, Nishi is smartly trying to break down the Gulbis FH.

Gulbis looks like his old confident arrogant self. will he take this result and bolt into top 20 ? or is this flash in the pan ?
