Too easy in the end for Novak. Turned out quite a subdued match after the first set.

Shaggy 30-01-20 12:08 PM

Djokovic has played 8 semis in the Aus Open and won every fucking one of them.

Zapater 30-01-20 12:08 PM

Turned on the stream to see the last point. Really glad Djokovic won, I can't stand Federer and his groupies.

RichC 02-02-20 12:00 PM

Thiem looking good to take the 3rd set.

Can always tell when Djokovic is rattled as the trainers appear on court. Used this trick throughout his career

Buzzo 18-03-20 01:59 AM

The French Open has been switched to September.

Buzzo 18-03-20 12:26 PM

I’ve missed Andy Murray.


SwedishDead 06-05-20 04:04 AM

What international world cup was the best for you in 2019?

Saveloy 23-06-20 01:35 PM

Djokovic tests positive for Covid-19. :rolleyes:

Buzzo 23-06-20 01:47 PM

Thats at least three players isnt it. What a dick.

Literally hosted a Covid spreading tournament.

Alex 23-06-20 02:04 PM

Hes gone absolutely miles down in my estimations with all of this. What a tosser.

Buzzo 23-06-20 02:35 PM

I found out he was antivax earlier this year. Idiot.

To be fair to him, he did try to row back from that a little, but it wasn't very convincing :haha:

"My job requires lots of travel, some are saying that for us who travel, we would have to take the vaccine that is yet to be developed. Therefore, I would like to repeat and point out that at this moment we do not have adequate information. We don’t know if there will be new measures, which of them will be taken, will we have a choice to decide on our own what to do or not with the vaccine…

“I would like to know more details about the whole process, before making right decisions. I am curious about wellbeing and I am going to spend the whole lifetime learning about body and how we can empower our metabolism to be in best shape to defend against imposters like Covid 19

spud_gun 23-06-20 03:09 PM

Novak and his wife been attending a COVID party?

Buzzo 23-06-20 06:55 PM

Andy Murray about to take on Liam Broady on Amazon Prime.

No supporters obvs. Take note Novak.

Pablo 24-06-20 01:42 PM

Djokovic is another 5G conspiracy theorist too, like Lovren. Both of them can go do one IMO. Idiots.

foresterbloke 24-06-20 02:15 PM

Yup, dumb as nails.

RichC 25-08-20 07:15 AM

Murray wins his first match vs a top ten player since 2017 :jaw: by beating Zverev in New York.

Pablo 25-08-20 09:22 AM

The only :jaw: here is that you posted the news before Buzzo :D

Buzzo 25-08-20 10:04 AM

:haha:

RichC 30-08-20 04:31 PM

Djokovic looking to start a new association for players.

Sounds a bit of mess so far, make only for a start and it sounds like there’s precious little info that’s been given on what they’re actually signing up to and let’s be honest the timing isn’t really great either !

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/tennis/53962537

Buzzo 30-08-20 06:10 PM

He's pissed off about all the abuse sent his way after his Covid spreading tournament.

RichC 01-09-20 05:13 PM

Murray about to start against Nishioka , be interesting to see how he does.

Buzzo 01-09-20 06:22 PM

I’d almost forgot - cheers for reminder :rock:

Buzzo 01-09-20 06:30 PM

:haha: Not gong well at all!

4-6, 0-4.

RichC 01-09-20 06:57 PM

Badly by the looks of it. 2 sets down.

His time at the top of tennis has gone by the looks of it

Buzzo 01-09-20 08:44 PM

Never more dangerous than when he’s ruled out.

I’m not saying he will won any more slams, but his rhythm will take a while to return after almost 2 years out.

Buzzo 01-09-20 09:00 PM

4th set goes to a TB.

Murray can’t get anything going but is hanging in.

Buzzo 01-09-20 10:01 PM

Murray wins in 5.

He’s unbelievable. Ridiculous. 4 and a half hours on a metal hip!!! He had lost that match about 10 times. I’ve no idea how he won that. He played some decent stuff in the fifth but think he was carrying some blisters?

I suspect he’ll not go too far after that... but.

Never ever rule him out.

Mentality monster, can you imagine how good someone like Kyrgios could be with Murray's desire and heart.

:handshake: It’s such an impressive quality to have.

He could be a real force at Wimbledon I reckon if he gets his rhythm back.

Buzzo 02-09-20 08:29 PM

Kyle Edmund takes the first set in a TB v Djokovic.

Needs to keep the intensity up for the second set.

Shaggy 04-09-20 08:16 AM

Murray beaten easily. Hard to take watching him losing all the time. :sigh:

Mind you Auger-Aliassime looks an unbelievable prospect.

Buzzo 04-09-20 08:26 AM

I suspect the efforts of Monday were going to be in repeatable.

Was reading that he is ticking off some milestones. He beat a top ten player, he’s won a 5 setter, he’s played a slam, won his first tournament.

Difficult to know what the expectations can be after so long out, but we’ve definitely had these discussions about Nadal and Federer in the past. It’s just that Murray’s style is so all action and playing every 2 days in a Slam is so physically challenging.

Good to see him back on court though.

Buzzo 04-09-20 03:08 PM

What an amazing attitude. Just one more. Please!!!

Quote:

"It was hard enough when I had two normal hips," the 33-year-old said.

"So it will be difficult, but I'll keep trying - why not? Why shouldn't I try my hardest to do that? And if I don't, that's all right. But I might as well shoot for the stars."

"I feel like I'm back at square one, having not played in slams for a few years," he said. "I need to build up my body and my physical conditioning so that I have the ability to back up five-set matches.

"That takes a bit of time, unfortunately."

He added: "You practice as much as you want with your coach or juniors, but playing against guys that are serving 135, 140 miles an hour and hitting the ball huge from the back of the court, your timing needs to be spot on.

"So the more I get exposed to playing with better players and practising with them, the better for me just now."

Murray says he can take positives from the past two weeks at Flushing Meadows though, having won two matches at the Western and Southern Open before coming from two sets and a break down to overcome Yoshihito Nishioka in nearly four hours and 40 minutes in the US open first round on Tuesday.

He will now turn his attention to the clay and preparing for the delayed French Open, which is scheduled to start on 27 September at Roland Garros.

"I would say even after tonight I'm more positive about what I could do in Grand Slams than I was before I came over here. You obviously don't know how I was feeling even just a couple of months ago," he said.

"I played a couple of tough matches in [the Western and Southern Open] and I played certainly one very tough match here, and my right hip felt good. That's really, really positive.

"There is other things that need to get better, but I would say that I'm more positive now than what I was a couple of months ago, that's for sure."

Shaggy 06-09-20 09:17 PM

Djokovic disqualified :jaw:


Shaggy 06-09-20 09:20 PM


RichC 06-09-20 09:47 PM

He’s not had a great year has he !

Buzzo 06-09-20 10:05 PM

:haha:

:handshake: He needs to take a look at himself after this year. You can see the strike below.
