Djokovic vs Tsonga Aussie Open FINAL 08

Australian Open

comment on the article

In my opinion this could be the best thing to happen to tennis for a long time maybe baggy(Winning Matches) or gonzo could be up there but they are already proven winners .Tsonga has nearly decimated half of the top 10 hopes for the aussie open ie.Murray,Nadal,Gasquet,Youzhny(will be in the top 10 by monday if im not wrong )
I think this match could well come down to nerves .Also worth noting people who beat him in slams last year were Nadal,gasquet and Roddick(didnt play in french open odd!!!!You would have thought that he would have got a Wild-card it being his home grand-slam)Could this be the first of many ?

I think djokos victory is the best thing for the tournament because if fed would have won .It would probably been a bit less compeititve in the final .Djokovic im my opinion is going to be the next number that may suprise a few but in my opinion i dont think nadal can win any other slam ...Than the french open.semi -finals or better in the last four slams.Impressive or Impressive...Also he is yet to lose a set this year and if it was federer it would be amazing...Could he be number 2 this time next year even maybe number 1(Unlikely)?

I expect 5 set thriller to make up for a lacklustre second week 9(No real close matches)I would say to tsonga victory because of having not as much pressure as djokovic

Good morning. Is morning in the caribben. Facist, watch your words pal. I'm against of ant war, like this one going on now in Ikaq. On necesary. Just inocent people getting kill.

But aby way your heart is full of hate. So nothing will change in you country as long as is not forginess. An eye for an eye will lave the world blind.

About Nadal are forgeting that is only 21 years old. Only time will tell if he has improve his potencial already. I don't think so but this a matter of who's you are talking to. About Djokovic I'm not saying here that he doesn't deserve his win he dioes he was a better player on the day. But that doesn't mean that I have to like him. I like the woman serbs they are totaly different. Mr. Novak is arrangant for my taste, well is maybe his parents that they are way out of line, and I tell you one thing Djokovic have to play around the world and if doesn't win the crowds he'll never be a very popular champion. Champion is also to be humble.

I can understand your feelings about Novak, but leave Nadal out of your hate, he is a tru champion and at the age of 21 he has acomplish a lot more that Djokovic that is only 1 year older. 9 master series 3 GS and 23 titles. So I guess the record speaks for it self.

Go and find a job, insted of been here writeting hated thret.

I think that dojokovic will be the next federer but much better. watching federer now is borring espicaly when he is against nadal it is all power. with the dojokovic and tsonga match there much more skill with some great backhands from dojokovic. B-)

I agree. I believe Djovick is a cheater, i congratulate him on his win but it can't go on. It is simply bad show to bounce the Tennis ball that many times. It's just as bad in my opinion, as a player serving at Novak before he's on the court. It's exactly the same thing, he's not ready for the serve!

Djovick is a great player and shows real potential to be a well known player. As for the ball bouncing, it can be offputting but its part of his routine and he deserves to win. Its nice to have a different champion for a change!

If you criticise ball bouncing what about shouting grunting shoelace tying dubious toilet and injury breaks and constant complaining to the the ref
" YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS"
That sort of thing used to great off putting by the BRAT.
Live with it or quit tennis ok ?
Djokovic is arguably close to the best in world right now bouncing or no bouncing and I will be proven right wait and see.
