The crowd is totally against Novak, wow.
they've been against him since the beginning. It's very weird. I don't really see why.

That was Tsonga's chance down the line pass, that could come back to haunt him big time. Tsonga upto umpire again about Djokovic's amount of bounces.
Should have hit that crosscourt, Novak was already defending DTL.
With crowd getting on Novak about about the time, they are actually giving him more time to bounce because of the interruption

Djokovic is a good sport but how many ball bounces is a bit much,you can understand the crowd on his back.

the complaining about the bouncing ball seems like much ado about nothing.

the instant he stops bouncing the ball, you can get ready to hit it? don'tchu think?

Thats the last thing one wants to concentrate on  ..-)

Douyble faults cost him the match. Congratulations Djokovic. He had great problems with Tsonga, well played

OMG. Novak Djokovic is a new OZ champion. Thank you so much for this great win. I knew you could do it. Congrats to Tsonga for making it so far.
