It’s frustrating Novak Djokovic, the defending champion, came so short with his QF clash with US Andy Roddick in 2009 Indian Wells. The score was 6-3, 6-2 and geez, Nole can be more better than this! This is not the Novak Djokovic I’ve seen in US Open QF last year.
Due to my frustration, I read several news-analysis articles about Nole on Wot News and this is what the 2008 Australian Open has to say.
“There’s not much to say. He played very solid. He didn’t do anything special. It was all me making an incredible amount of unforced errors. This was one of the worst matches I have played. It’s tough to explain, really. It’s just one of those days when you really don’t feel comfortable on the court. I just didn’t have any momentum. No feel for the ball, no movement, no solutions.”
“I wasn’t patient in any stages of the match. I tried to put some first serves in but they weren’t going in.”
Perhaps on my part, I expected a lot from Nole after his win in Barclays Championship in Dubai last February. the truth is; QF is already a good achievement, right?
