    I struggle to think of anyone as less self aware as Djokovic.

    It was bad. His 2nd match point chance he fucked up, screamed at his box, then stomped corporate signage (and broke it) without any words from the chair.

    He wins his 3rd shot at match point, in an empty stadium, and is rude to his opponent in the process.

    He screamed after both match points and then again after the handshake. I would’ve told him to shut the fuck up if I was Beretinni

    Pavs breaks up 6-5 in the first to take it as Zidansek double faults on set point down.

    Krejcikova doing a bit of the Andreescu, hitting moon ball returns to try and throw the rhythm off and create some overhits. Not a bad strategy down late.

    I will say, I always like the person that serves first in a set where there is no tiebreaker. You dont get the nerves of having to hold your serve when youre up a break

    usually I am wanting two 5 setters but Novak only deserves 3 sets

    and I hope Rafa celebrates obnoxiously on every break
