This was very much a good final, and congratulations to both. Tsonga, Ill be watching you.
Dont fight about tennis, support tennis.

I just didn't think I would be seeing a clay court tournament where Roddick is still in it and Nadal is out.   -   Dallas -  31 May, RG 2009

Wow, it seems weird that Djoko just won his 1st grand slam!    I suppose it would have been more weird if Tsonga would have just won his 1st.

Djoko has done it! 7/6 in the 4th for his first Grand Slam title, very well done to him and his supporters like Alex  :)

Thank you so much Chris. I'm the happiest man in the world now. although I"m 39 yo I feel like crying right now  :rofl_2:

Djokovic is still #3 with 5130 points. Tsonga is going to be #17 or #18. I don't think we ever had 3 top players with over 5000 points.

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?

I think Tsonga was actually complaining about a faking serve action. Like not just the ball bounce but I felt it was something like after a few ball bounces Djoko apparently delays a second sorta like he's going to serve and then goes back to bouncing some more.
It's still annoying I think, because its just a delay. there's an unwritten pretty much expected range of time, you get into rythem and serve, not get into rythem .. get into rythem more.. get into more rythem.. and then.. get into some more ball bouncing etc.

anyway, good match. first grand slam for Djokovic, well earned, well deserved no question. :applause:

Congrats to Novak and you Alex...

but on the last point, that might be a little frustrating, depending on how often Novak bounced the ball before "serving"  :)~

Yes indeed. All complaints of arrogance and gamesmanship aside, This was a well earned well deserved slam for Djokovic. He's been pretty much the only confident player on tour besides Federer over the last year (and coincidentally, these two are the ones labelled arrogant.. maybe the lack of confident positive speaking players is really that bad that any hint of confidence becomes arrogance now). he's been fighting, believing in himself. he went through hewitt (in australia), an in form Ferrer who's been playing fantastic since last USO and then the man Federer himself and a hot Tsonga.

well earned, well deserved champion, Djokovic.

Nah wouldn't like to see that  :)) Maria needs to keep all her focus and attention on the court after all the hardwork she's put in these last few months to get where she ia now :)

Djoko deserved this one big time today after the last 12 months and his win over Fed!
