Stan's playing almost everything down the middle.

That was, for all intents and purposes, match point.

The momentum shifts in this match are staggering and dizzying!
Then we will fight in the shade.

2 hours gone on serve in 3rd,Nole should take over now.The one shot that can help stan is his backhand,that's some weapon if it's fireing.

This 5 game lull has certainly helped Stan.

That is one goofy looking return of serve by Gumby.

Nole is starting that ball bouncing business again.  ..-)

(see Mertov thread)
That was an interesting read, Mertov confirming what had been aired by the AO spokesperson.  And interesting to note these tactics being used by Djokovic.  It was a superb start by SW, but as expected, he has let himself down & also as expected, Djokovic has gone up several gears and taken advantage of his opponents implosion, to consolidate his command on the match, up 2 sets to one.  Clever play by ND to take it to deuce.


Nice forehand from SW to go 30-40 on ND's serve.  Now SW on advantage. Can he break?

Carpe Diem

The ball was in, but SW's momentum broken, by that challenge.  But why play so hesitantly at the net?   SW holds.

It's just a slow drip right now. I'd love to go to sleep but I have too much invested.
