    Miami is right after, Federer isn't playing since he can choose which masters he does/doesn't want to play. Wonder if that'll be a repeat of last year too and we get another one sided Djokdal final.
    To illustrate that point about Dubai and IW even farther, Atobe,

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    Yeah, higher bouncing surfaces really suit Djokovics (and especially Nadal's) game.

    Didn't realize Miami was IMMEDIATELY after lol. Qualies/1st round stuff today though. I'm most looking forward to Del Potro's return.

    Yeah, they do. Djokovic choked that second set away, though, both by getting broken and then by double faulting twice when up 5-4 in the tiebreak.

    Yeah, that's why it's hard to win IW and then Miami or Montreal/Toronto and then Cincy.

    Oh, Tsonga is also returning in Miami...interesting.

    I think he choked in the 3rd set and allowed that tiebreak to happen last year too.

    Potentially. I don't recall last year's IW Final. Anyway, I do remember Djokovic choking games and sets away in last year's Wimbledon Final.

    Murray made it interesting this time...the first two sets seemed tight (didn't watch..expected a beating) but Novak does the IW/Miami double for a 3rd time and a 2nd consecutive time. 7-6(3),4-6,6-0

    I caught the second and third sets. Murray played well in the second, but then got destroyed in the third.

    Re: The Tennis Thread

    Well, at the beginning of the match when Djokovic started it by getting broken, you had to wonder.

    Novak is prone to slow starts these days. Same thing happened VS berdych and he still won playing at a lower level than he did VS nadal.

    That said...methinks he finds another way to lose Roland Garros again.
