Djokovic`s big ovation at the end.

Stella

Nole got tired

O

The one who won the first set lost easily?

O

And that's Djokovic.

M

1) I think O might have the first part - if Nole wins the first set, he usually wins the match.

2) The only other thing I can think of is that Mr. Gluten-Free Return Machine did not expect that bad tummy at such a critical time. Usually a national network is not going to broadcast the (yucky) remains of that.
I know I didn't want to see it.

HoiHa

The crowd for the first time was with nadal and not his opponent - after novak's charm offensive the crowd was against him nevertheless - and were surprisingly behind Nadal - nadal is used to being jeered and boo'd by the Paris fans.

1. Nole crying openly
2. Spitting goo . Perhaps the same as M's no.2.

Manal


Nole made a double fault serve at 30-40 on a championship matchpoint

jennifur

that was b-u-ti-fulll 2 c.....
v/happy 4 luv djoko got from crowd.....
furrrr surrrreeeeeee!!!!

Bella

Rafa was visibly tired.

RafaKenya

I go with HoiHa

Bella

Can I have another attempt? Rafa applauded 2 of Novak's shots at the net - he tapped his racket strings with the palm of his hand.

Veglia

True, never saw Rafa applaud before

Veglia

Nole's return didn't show up

Kitty

Nole tired in the 2nd set itself

Veglia

One ball even kicked him when Rafa served to the body

M

Rafa applauded Andy after their match. I've seen him do that many times.

O

Djokovic missed a return of spiny serve, ended up taking the shot in the face?

Veglia

After the match, yes, many times. But, not during it. Same with Federer.

srezende

I guess everybody is searching for bad unexpected stuff. The pics give clues: Best things, openings, opportunity...

alex

That he can win being tired because his opponent double faulted. In another word, too easy.

Kathy

He can often be heard to say "bueno" in response to a good shot from his opponent.

Kathy

Djokovic also double faulted at 5-3, 30-40 in the first set. Nadal would have broken back had it been called, and maybe done it in 3 sets.

alex

Agree Kathy. Thanks.

1) - I like Kitty's Answer
2) - M's # 2 answer
3) - Rafa won his serve far more easily and went the forehand down the line more....worked effectively!
4) - Novak was given the wrong trophy. Novak’s square plate was handed to Maria the Umpire and Novak was given Maria’s…duh!

alex

TP who won? it is time to show, no?

alex

Today I experienced the scary thing of not able to log on for it was 404 cannot find this page etc. So glad now it is ok. Did anyone else experience the same ??

M

I did too, alex.

(I was wondering if it had something to do with that troll who kept posting under different names, & whether s/he was trying to hack its way in. TP & Typepad Support seem to have fixed the problem & gotten rid of him / her / it.)

Jenny

Alex, M - I did too. Also as M says.

Murph

Alex, M, and Jenny.... you can add me to the list wondering if TP couldn't get on either to announce the WOF winner. It was Friday the 13th!

alex

Really !! Wow thanks M.

alex

Jenny I had a scare. But then I know I shall be fine. So I stared to breath again. For I know TP will not abandon us.

alex

I think you are right Murph. For that 404 pages did mention that "if u r the owner of the site u have to do this and that...etc."
Hope TP can log in.

Calling Calling for TP !!! I want to know who won !!

M

Oh, Murph - you're right!

TP ...?

Tennis Planet

WINNER: SREZENDE.

Manal

srezende

Stella
