Re: Australian Open 2011

We Francji będzie ciekawiej. Zwłaszcza, że będę się mógł jeszcze baczniej niż przed rokiem temu turniejowi przyjrzeć.

Gratulacje dla Novaka.
Mecz finałowy rozczarował. Fatalna gra A. Murraya. Nie pamiętam meczu finałowego WS, który obydwaj finaliści skończyliby na minusie. Andy: 21-47, Novak: 26-33.
Mam nadzieję, że to ostatni finał WS w tym roku na takim poziomie.

Noo, chodziło mi o ten mecz. Bo sam turniej do fazy 1/4 był w miarę atrakcyjny- dopiero później zakpiono z widzów Eurosportu.

No nic, byle do Wimbledonu...

Nie wiem, czy dlatego, że jestem całym sercem za Rogerem, to finał bez niego jest dla mnie mało emocjonujący, ale ten finał nie zachwycił chyba nie tylko mnie. Andy do psychologa, choć tu akurat się cieszę że wygrał Nole. Przynamniej Roger przegrał z triumfatorem, który, przyznaję szczerze, zasłużył na ten tytuł. Wracajcie Roger i Rafa, bez was finał WS to kiszka.

Re: Australian Open 2011

Będę złośliwy. Jedź chłopcze do Szanghaju i pokaż jakim jesteś mistrzem w meczach o czapkę gruszek. Jak przychodzi naprawdę duża stawka, Murray wymięka na całej linii i coraz mocniej wątpię, aby coś się miało w tej materii zmienić.

Djokovic w życiowej formie i tytuł zasłużenie dla Serba. Z taką grą może nastąpić przełom w karierze Novaka, o ile będzie pilnował swojego dość delikatnego zdrowia.

Re: Australian Open 2011

Widzę każdy zawiedziony finałem. Ci, którzy byli za Djokovicem w finale - chyba nie warto tu wdawać się w dyskusje.
Ja za to odniosłem wrażenie takie. Murray grał fatalnie, więc po co Djokovic miał się niepotrzebnie wysilać skoro punkty przychodziły same po błędach rywala? Jeśli Nole... przepraszam Novak wygrałby po fenomenalnej grze 6-0 6-0 6-0 ciekawe jakby wszyscy zareagowali. Tak jak ktoś podkreślił - doszli do finału więc w tym turnieju byli najlepsi. Czemu właśnie Roddick nie doszedł chociaż do półfinału skoro jest świetny w swoim zawodzie? Nie będę się tutaj rozpisywać, bo moja pozycja z góry jest skreślona przez mojego ulubieńca.
Najlepszy sposób został tu już wymieniony - sezon się zaczął, poczekajmy do listopada na ATP World Tour Final (przypomnę Djokovic też wygrał już tą imprezę).

Re: Australian Open 2011

Zgodnie z oczekiwaniami potoczył się ten finał. Djoković grał bardzo solidnie, miał naprawdę imponujące fragmenty, momentami troszkę sikał, jednak całościowo wypadł przekonująco.
A Murray.... szkoda gadać. Kolejny finał przeżnięty w żałosny sposób, 3 wizyta w meczu o tytuł i po raz kolejny bez ani jednego seta na koncie. Doprawdy nie wiem, kogo potrzebowałby Szkocina po drugiej stronie sieci, aby zatriumfować. Chyba tylko i wyłącznie Gasqueta lub rozregulowanego Verdasco.

Świetny turniej Serba, jednak generalnie uważam to za jednorazowy wyskok. Niepokoją mnie tego typu Wielkie Szlemy, ponieważ zmuszają mnie do wyrażenia pewnego podziwiu dla Nadala, który wydaje się Bogiem fizycznym, mentalnym na tle nawet ścisłego zaplecza Top 2.

To był najgorszy finał WS jaki w widziałem, finał RG'08 czy Wimbla '10 to przy tym arcydzieła tenisowe.
Uważam, że triumf Djokovicia jest jak najbardziej zasłużony, Novak prezentował się świetnie w przeciągu całego turnieju z finałem włącznie. A Murray znów pokazał, że jak nie popracuję nad sferą mentalną, to Szlema nigdy nie wygra.

Re: Australian Open 2011

Australian Open - Djokovic crowned Australian Open champ

Novak Djokovic won his second Australian Open with a straightforward 6-4 6-2 6-3 win over a lacklustre Andy Murray in Melbourne.


The third-seeded Serb, who also won the title in 2008, was the better player throughout and wrapped up the title after two hours and 37 minutes when Murray dumped a forehand into the net.

After reaching the US Open final last September, Djokovic has been on an incredible run of form and has now added a second Australian Open title to the Davis Cup title he won with Serbia last month.

With Djokovic producing a fantastic performance to beat Roger Federer in the semi-finals, the match promised much as Murray prepared for his first Grand Slam final in which he would not have to face the 16-times major champion.

But, despite the first two games taking nearly 20 minutes, Murray was never really in the clash with Djokovic running away with proceedings after taking a nervy opening set.

"I dedicate this title to my family, my brothers, my girl Jelena back home, my people that have been with me for so many years," an emotional Djokovic said, cradling the trophy.

"It has been a tough period for our people in Serbia," added Djokovic, who also paid tribute to the victims of the recent Queensland floods. "We are trying every single day to present our country in the best possible way, so this is for my country Serbia.

"This means the world to me. Any Grand Slam title is a huge achievement. I have dedicated my life to the sport.

"I'm still 23 and hopefully will have more chances to win Grand Slams. It really gives me a lot of motivation. It's a huge confidence boost."
Djokovic was clearly the more settled of the two players right from the start, powering through a love service hold before enjoying a handful of break points as early as the second game.

Nervousness underpinned the first set, with both players missed shots they would ordinarily have drilled away for winners, as they exchanged battling service holds.

But Djokovic maintained his composure slightly better from Murray and broke in the 10th game; earning himself set point after a 38-stroke rally before going on to take the lead when the Brit slapped a forehand long of the baseline.

From there the Serb really warmed to his task and he further heaped the pressure on Murray with a break in just the second game of the next set, the Serb easily getting up to a drop shot from Murray to fire off a backhand passing shot across court for a winner.

Djokovic went on to break again in the fourth game when Murray hit yet another tight forehand into the net. And, although the Brit did retrieve one of the breaks, Djokovic had things firmly under control and secured the second set after riffling a forehand winner down the line.

With Djokovic only surrendering a two-sets-to-love lead once in his career - against Jurgen Melzer at last year's French Open - the size of Murray's task looked nigh-on impossible.

Seemingly freed from pressure, Murray enjoyed his best phase of the match early in the third set when he broke in the first game with a forehand passing shot winner.

But Djokovic, who has toned down his on-court antics in recent months, was not about to let the momentum of the match slip from his grasp and he broke back immediately to deal a further blow to Murray's already fragile confidence.

The Serb then broke for the lead in the fourth game, Murray saving five break chances before eventually surrendering his serve when Djokovic threaded a backhand passing shot down the line.

A tight game from Djokovic to hand Murray the break back just one game later suggested a few signs that the Serb might tighten up as he closed in on the title. But it proved to be only a temporary blip as he broke again in the seventh game to restore his lead and leave him with the chance to serve out the match.

And Djokovic secured a drama-free end to the match as he closed the match at the first attempt when Murray slapped his 47th unforced error into the net.

"I'll try to keep it together this year," said Murray, who had been reduced to tears after being beaten by Federer in both last year's final and the 2008 US Open final.

"I won't lose sleep over it. I want to try to win a Grand Slam but if it doesn't happen, it doesn't happen."

Australian Open - Djokovic admits 'big mental struggle

Novak Djokovic had to straighten out his life away from tennis in order to bring his best on to the court and the "big mental struggle" paid off when he clinched an elusive second Grand Slam title.

Having knocked on the door since winning the Australian Open three years ago, the steely-eyed Serb ripped it off the hinges as he trampled Andy Murray 6-4 6-2 6-3 to win the 2011 edition under the floodlights at Rod Laver Arena.

After a disappointing semi-final exit at Wimbledon last year, Djokovic had to "settle things" in his head before hitting top form on the way to the US Open final and an emotional Davis Cup triumph at the end of the season.

"Something switched in my head because I am very emotional on and off the court," said the lanky 23-year-old, the Norman Brookes Challenge Cup propped up next to him.

"The things off court were not working for me. It reflected on my game, on my professional tennis career.

"It's been a big mental struggle because I was trying to separate my professional life from my more private life," added Djokovic.

"If something isn't working off court, then it's going to reflect on the court. I managed to solve those problems.

"Of course everybody's facing difficult situations in their lives. To overcome the crisis and to stand up and try to still dedicate yourself to the sport was a big success for me as a person."

Djokovic served up a third helping of Grand Slam agony for Briton Murray, 23, who lost last year's final in straight sets to Roger Federer and was also thrashed by the Swiss in the 2008 US Open final.

With Britain's 75-year wait for a men's Grand Slam champion prolonged, Djokovic suggested his friend and occasional practice partner Murray could be in for more pain.

"Of course it's not easy. You could see his struggle and frustrations tonight because he had chances to win a first Grand Slam trophy," said the Serb who muted his victory celebrations in deference to his opponent.

"Every time you get there you want to win it badly but some things go wrong. You're thinking too much. You're worrying too much in your head.

"It's a mental battle, definitely. Bottom line is that this is a very mental sport in the end. Everybody is very fit," added Djokovic.

"But it's a learning process, I guess. It wasn't easy for me either. I know how he feels ... he's still young. I'm sure he's gonna have more chances to win it."

Having blasted past Federer for a second straight Grand Slam semi-final, Djokovic's triumph will inevitably stoke talk of a new era in men's tennis but the Serb was having none of it.

"Still Rafa (Nadal) and Roger are the two best players in the world," said Djokovic who will stay at number three when the new rankings come out on Monday. "You can't compare my success and Murray's success to their success.

"It's nice to see there are some new players in the later stages of Grand Slams fighting for a title. That's all I can say."

Djokovic, though, forecast a shorter wait for his next Grand Slam title than the three frustrating years since he ground down Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to win his first.

"Yes, I feel like a more experienced player. I feel a better player now than I was three years ago because I think physically I'm stronger, I'm faster, mentally I'm more motivated on the court," he explained.

"I don't want to stop here. Definitely I want to keep my body healthy, fit and ready for some more challenges to come."

Re: Australian Open 2011

And so the wait goes on ...

http://l.yimg.com/i/util/anysize/376,http%3A%2F%2Fa323.yahoofs.com%2Fymg%2Ftramlines%2Ftramlines-448503810-1296401373.jpg%3FymdfxeEDaZqMAVb1?v=2

It could have been the sleep-deprived state Tramlines found itself in or the 40 degree sunshine that was forecast for the day in Melbourne but it was hard to ignore a feeling of optimism this morning.

And Tramlines even indulged in a spot of singing in the shower (Tramlines as it turns out is no Susan Boyle) with a couple of lines from a popular 1990s sporting song a particular feature.

"Jules Rimet still gleaming/30 years of hurt/Never stopped me dreaming ..."

Oh wait, wrong sport.

Never mind, nothing was going to spoil Trammers's mood today. There were two good players in the final and it was going to be a well-matched clash.

It's the same principle anyway, albeit with a few extra decades added on.

In fact, as we have all been told a number of times, it's been 75 years since there was a last British Grand Slam winner. 75 years. That's three times the length of Trammers's lifetime.

A little later indulging in a champion's breakfast with Cow Corner, a VB in one hand and a couple of TimTims in the other, the feeling of optimism continued.

Trammers: "So do you think England can win the cricket and keep the ODI series alive?"

Cowers: "I hope so. We bowled brilliantly. You think Murray can beat Djokovic? The Serb hasn't been getting the credit he deserves for his form."

Trammers: "I hope so. If he plays like he did in the first four rounds, I think he'll just edge it."

It's that kind of spot-on analysis that earns Tramlines and Cow Corner their minimum wage pay packet each month, as Australia went on to beat England by 51 runs in Brisbane (thereby taking an unassailable 4-1 lead in the seven-match series) and Novak Djokovic thrashed Andy Murray in three sets to lift the Norman Brooks Trophy for the second time.

Since when did Britain stop being a nation of heroic losers and just start losing (England's impressive Ashes triumph aside)? Even the England football team don't have the decency anymore to make it look like they might win something, only to pull the rug out from under our feet with a "soul-crushing defeat".

Actually Trammers is being a little harsh.

Andy Murray does deserve credit for reaching his second successive Australian Open final. Of course he does.

He did what 126 of the other players who arrived in Melbourne two weeks ago couldn't do. And he played well to get there. Or more specifically, to start with he played well.

He was beaten by a player in the form of his life, riding high on confidence after reaching last year's US Open final and leading his country to the Davis Cup final.

It's not actually the fact that Murray lost that rankles with Tramlines, it's the manner in which he did it.

General opinion had it that facing Djokovic instead of Federer in the final would help Murray, he would be freed of the constraints of facing the 16-times Grand Slam champion and could produce a great match, probably of at least four sets, against a player he has faced since he was 12-years-old.

But instead the Brit looked lacklustre from the outset. He won just nine games. Nine.

That matches the performance from his first Grand Slam final when he was crushed at the US Open by Roger Federer in 2008 and four less than he won in last year's Melbourne final, also against Federer, a defeat that famously reduced him to tears.

No, the point is not that Murray lost today, he was beaten by the better player on the day.

The point is that once again he failed to produce anything even close to his best tennis in the big match, the one that really mattered.

TWEET OF THE DAY: "novak can talk the talk.....but can he do the penguin walk??" Yes, Jamie Murray, it turns out he very much can.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "It's better than it was last year. It was obviously tough, disappointing. You know, I thought Novak played unbelievably well. Yeah, it's tough, but I've got to deal with it." Is it really better than last year, Andy? Some might argue the opposite.

Will Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic
become World No. 1 this year?


ATPWorldTour.com takes a look at the news and talking points at the conclusion of the Australian Open on Sunday.

A Future World No. 1?
Serbia's Davis Cup captain Bogdan Obradovic believes Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic can realise his dream of becoming No. 1 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings this year on the evidence of his performance against Roger Federer and Andy Murray.
"Djokovic has improved in every department and quite frankly, I expected him to beat Murray after the way he played throughout the tournament," said Obradovic. "He has become mentally and physically stronger, he is even more accurate with his passing shots than in 2008 and can win points quickly when he needs to.
"With all that in mind, it will be very difficult to stop him from becoming the world number one this year, if he keeps playing at this level throughout the season. Djokovic has gone to another level. He is a different player and a different person, more confident than ever before in his career."
Djokovic, who attributes some of his toughness to growing up in a war-ravaged nation, dedicated his triumph to Serbia. "There has been a tough period for our people in Serbia," said Djokovic, during the trophy presentation ceremony. "But we are trying every single day to present our country in the best possible way. So this is for my country, Serbia."

Murray's Loyal Supporters
Dave Macdermid, a Tennis Scotland spokesman, believes Murray's time will come for major glory.
Speaking to BBC Scotland, Macdermid said: "It is extremely disappointing and we are all gutted for Andy but Djokovic played absolutely wonderful tennis and deserves that credit. However, as one of only a handful of genuinely world-class sportspeople that Scotland has, we are absolutely convinced that Andy's time will come, sooner rather than later. Andy can play a lot better. We know he's got it in his locker. It's just unfortunate that today was not meant to be."
First Minister Alex Salmond added: "Andy Murray has taken Scottish tennis to a place it has never been, and is a fantastic ambassador for his sport."
In Murray's hometown, Dunblane, shop windows featured posters supporting their favourite son, while fans gathered at pubs, the Dunblane Hotel and the National Tennis Centre at the University of Stirling to watch the final. Murray's grandfather, Roy Erskine, who watched from home, admitted: "The first time Andy got to a final we had no idea what to expect, but now we realise just how massive it is."

British Newspaper Reaction
Richard Williams, the chief sports writer of The Guardian newspaper, writes "So now we know that not even a knock‑up with David Cameron in the drawing room of No. 10 could inspire Andy Murray to the ultimate victory. More seriously, the dominant conclusion to emerge from his defeat in Melbourne today was that if he is ever going to win a Grand Slam tournament, he will probably need better help than he is getting.
Richard Williams, the chief sports writer of newspaper, writes "So now we know that not even a knock‑up with David Cameron in the drawing room of No10 could inspire Andy Murray to the ultimate victory. More seriously, the dominant conclusion to emerge from his defeat in Melbourne today was that if he is ever going to win a Grand Slam tournament, he will probably need better help than he is getting.
"Today Djokovic surmounted an even more daunting hurdle, which is to win again. After winning in 2008, he fell back. But he has worked hard to strengthen his game, and his single-minded demolition of Federer on Thursday showed that he is worthy of his place among the world's top three."
Simon Briggs, writing in The Daily Telegraph, admits, "Credit to Novak Djokovic: he played some wonderful points today. Last year, Murray could claim that Roger Federer blew him off the court with some scintillating tennis. This time, Djokovic played well – but in a more defensive fashion, so that his most spectacular shots were the retrievals he made out of a Kim Clijsters-esque splits position at either end of the court.
"Even on those occasions when Murray did put some decent points together, Djokovic simply lifted his game to a higher level in response. He would probably have edged it, even if Murray had done himself justice. But we will never know for sure. The Serb was never really tested, never pressurised, by a man who seemed at odds with his own game for most of the evening."

A Fortunate Alliance
Daniel Nestor has his former partner Nenad Zimonjic to thank for engineering his mixed doubles title-success on Sunday. In October last year, Zimonjic informed WTA pro Katarina Srebotnik he wanted to play at the Australian Open with his Serbian compatriot Ana Ivanovic in preparation for the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
Srebotnik explained, "Then I was looking, and Daniel was right there. Zicky [Zimonjic] kind of said in joke that Daniel thinks I'm the perfect mixed player. Of course, he was joking. So I said I would love to play [together]." They ended up winning the title.
One reporter picked up on the fact that Srebotnik and Nestor didn't appear to communicate a great deal. Srebotnik admitted: "We talked before the match about every point, every possibility, so we knew exactly what everyone has to do, so there's no need to communicate. So it was no problem, even if we weren't talking that much."
Now 38-year-old Nestor, who won the mixed title with Elena Likhovtseva in 2007, is undecided over his future mixed doubles plans. "[It] can't get any better than this, [so] maybe I should stop," he said, smiling. "I mean, I never considered myself a great mixed player. I played better this week than normal. Obviously playing with a great partner helps. I'll try and find someone that I'm compatible with for the future."

By The Numbers
Canadian Milos Raonic had a tournament-best 46 racquets strung on his run to a fourth-round loss to David Ferrer. The 20 year old also fired the fastest serve at 143 miles per hour and had the most aces (94 aces).
Racquet stringers restrung 3,492 frames using 26.4 miles of string.
More than 49,000 tennis balls were ordered for the first Grand Slam championship of the year.
The 2011 Australian Open saw a total of 651,127 fans flock to Melbourne Park, just short of the record attendance of 653,860 set last year.

Re: Australian Open 2011

Australian Open. Finał mężczyzn. Djoković wszechmocny

http://bi.gazeta.pl/im/5/9025/z9025375Z,Novak-Djokovic.jpg

Nie pomogła pogoda, kibice w kiltach, ani modły brytyjskich dziennikarzy. Novak Djoković bezlitośnie sprał Andy'ego Murraya 6:4, 6:2, 6:3 i zdobył drugi tytuł wielkoszlemowy. - Niesamowicie wydoroślał. Wygra kolejne Szlemy, niedługo będzie numerem dwa na świecie - przewidują fachowcy.

"Andy Murray, duma Szkocji" i "Andy, legenda znad rzeki Yarra" - takie transparenty trzymali wymalowani na niebiesko-biało kibice w kiltach przed wejściem na Rod Laver Arena. - Jeśli nie teraz, to kiedy? Nie ma Nadala, nie ma Federera. Musi się wreszcie udać - szeptali brytyjscy dziennikarze, którzy właściwie przez dzień i noc nie wychodzili z biura prasowego. Zapełniali gazety analizami, wywiadami, przewidywali nawet, że Murray'owi pomoże pogoda. "Ma być gorąco, a jak wiadomo Djoković nie lubi upału" - pisał "Guardian". - Wierzę w Andy'ego. Wydoroślał, jest w stanie wygrać - mówił Neil Harman z "Timesa".

Otwierający set finału oddzielił jednak mężczyznę od chłopca. Trzy pierwsze gemy grali przez 24 minuty, zapowiadało się, że mogą skończyć o piątej rano. Potem było jeszcze trochę szarpaniny, ale w końcówce Djoković zagrał kilka piłek mocniej, ruszył do przodu, przycisnął i nie puścił już do końca meczu. Serb nie tyle grał od Szkota lepiej, on dominował nad nim w sposób totalny. Był szybszy, dokładniejszy, dobiegał dosłownie do każdej piłki, a jego serwis i forhend zawsze mu pomagały w trudnych chwilach. W sferze psychicznej między Serbem i Szkotem była przepaść szeroka jak Wielki Kanion. Momentami Murray sprawiał wrażenie małego chłopczyka, który wstydzi się, że patrzy na niego aż tyle osób. Dla Serba adrenalina, emocje, ostre jak brzytwa akcje były jak hausty świeżego powietrza.

- Fatalny mecz Andy'ego. Był wolniejszy, ale przede wszystkim za mało agresywny. Dopiero w trzecim secie próbował grać odważniej, ale było za późno - komentował Patrick McEnroe. - Murraya zawiódł drugi serwis, który Djoković wściekle atakował. Za mało ruszał się do przodu - dodał Brad Gilbert.

Eksperci zastanawiali się, czy Andy podjął dobrą decyzję nie zatrudniając trenera po rozstaniu z Milesem Maclaganem w poprzednim sezonie. Jego czasowy doradca Alex Corretja nie przyjechał nawet do Melbourne. Szkotowi pomagała mama Judy oraz niedoświadczony Wenezuelczyk Dani Velverdu, przyjaciel z czasów, gry Szkot trenował w Barcelonie. - Być może przed takim meczem albo nawet w jego trakcie, jakieś słowo, gest, mogłoby mu pomóc? - zastanawiali się Brytyjczycy.

- W finale Szlema musisz wyjść na kort i walczyć. Musisz wydrzeć rywalowi zwycięstwo. Andy, tak samo jak rok temu z Federerem, czekał aż mecz wygra się sam, a tak się nie da - mówił Gilbert. Jego zdaniem Djoković w ciągu ostatniego roku tak wzmocnił serwis, forhend i stronę mentalną, że pod koniec sezonu może być numerem dwa za Rafaelem Nadalem, który - o ile będzie zdrów - na Rolandzie Garrosie i Wimbledonie będzie faworytem. Ale na twardej nawierzchni w Nowym Jorku Djoković może rozpętać z nim wojnę. O Federerze nikt już nie mówi inaczej niż "numer trzy". - Pytanie brzmi teraz raczej, czy będziemy mieli wielką trójkę z Rogerem, czy dwójkę w nowym składzie z Novakiem i Rafą - stwierdził Gilbert.

Wszyscy zwracali uwagę, że Djoković niezwykle wydoroślał także poza kortem. Kilka lat temu potrafił się szarpać z kibicami, przekomarzać, pyskować. Teraz na każdym kroku pokazuje wielką klasę. - W mojej głowie zaszła zmiana. Oddzieliłem zupełnie sprawy rodzinne od zawodowych - mówił Novak na konferencji. Dziennikarze dociekali, ale nie chciał doprecyzować. Od jakiegoś czasu Serb nie jeździ już na wszystkie turnieje z ojcem, matką i bratem (to oni wywoływali te złe emocje?). Najbliżej niego jest tylko sztab trenerów na czele ze Słowakiem Marianem Vajdą. - Tenis jest sportem indywidualnym, ale bez moich ludzi, nie byłoby mnie. Są nie tylko fachowcami, są moimi najlepszymi przyjaciółmi - mówił Serb.

- Momentami czułem się na korcie wszechmocny. W tym roku zagrałem tutaj tenis mojego życia, ale nie martw się Andy, tobie też kiedyś uda się wygrać w Szlemie. Masz wielki talent - pocieszał Murraya podczas ceremonii wręczenia nagród. - Dedykuję ten tytuł Serbii, mojej ojczyźnie, która wiele wycierpiała. Cieszę się, że mogę dostarczyć moim rodakom radość i satysfakcję - stwierdził Djoković, który wygrał w Australii po raz drugi - w 2008 r. pokonał w finale Jo-Wilfrieda Tsongę.

Murray pozostaje tenisistą z największą liczbą wygranych Mastersów, który nie ma na koncie Szlema. W finałach nie urwał wciąż rywalom nawet seta (bilans 0-9). Skąd bierze się ta psychiczna blokada? 23-letni Djoković, rówieśnik Murray'a, który grał z nim przed laty w tych samych juniorskich turniejach, wspominał w Melbourne konferencję prasową, gdy razem wystąpili kiedyś w jednej parze w deblu. - Pamiętam, że przyszło tylu brytyjskich dziennikarzy, że aż go zatkało. Ja musiałem gadać za nas dwóch. Ciężko jest być jedyną nadzieją brytyjskiego tenisa, z Wimbledonem i całą waszą prasą na głowie. Pod tym względem było mi znacznie łatwiej - stwierdził Djoković.

Kiedy po raz ostatni Fred Perry wygrywał tytuł w Szlemie na US Open, prezydentem w Białym Domu był Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a Niemcami rządził Adolf Hitler. Od tamtego czasu Brytyjczycy tylko siedem razy doszli do finałów, wszystkie przegrali.

Czy Murray kiedyś się przełamie? Historia tenisa zna takie przypadki. Agassi przegrał trzy pierwsze finały, a potem wygrał Wimbledon i siedem innych Szlemów. Sęk w tym, że Agassi miał Samprasa i Couriera, a Murray z Wielką Brytanią jest sam jak palec.

Australian Open: Djokovic d. Murray

http://blogs.tennis.com/.a/6a00d83451599e69e20147e21f6f64970b-800wi

About midway through the second set of the Australian Open final, I had a thought no doubt shared by many of you: “I set my alarm clock to 3:15 am for…this?”

It was ugly. Andy Murray started weak and just got worse in his third Grand Slam final, especially when you consider the magnitude of the opportunity; this time it wasn’t Roger Federer but Novak Djokovic across the net. Not everyone expected Murray to win, not the way Djokovic has been pounding opponents into oblivion. But everyone expected Murray to fight, compete, contend—to work some of his patented, defensive, anti-tennis magic. It was not to be; Murray yielded a pro-forma break at 4-5 in the first set, while he was still playing a solid if not superior game based on defense and quick counter-thrusts. But once Djokovic won the set, almost all resistance vanished. The theme throughout the United Kingdom tomorrow will be, “Murray has issues…” Judging by his evening’s work, those issues could be technical, oedipal, mental, physical, emotional. Or who knows what else?

This is too bad, because Murray’s lethargic, dispassionate, cranky performance was so striking that it obscured the paramount fact and distinction of the match—Djokovic’s excellence. Even if Murray had been at his best, full of energy and guile, Djokovic would have been extremely tough to beat. For on this night the No. 3 seed from Serbia, who’s had to wait for 12 majors to lock up his second Grand Slam title, relied on a beautifully modulated and precisely calibrated game. He played offense early on, taking the game to Murray and then, as the frustration of the No. 5 seed became manifest, he fell back on defense with an edge—the edge being his eagerness as well as willingness to pounce on any opportunity to attack. Djokovic was at his best, making the transition from solid defense and great court coverage to offense in the blink of an eye. The most surprising thing about the straight-sets win was that Murray was unable to drag Djokovic’s game down and thereby rob him of some well-earned praise.

It doesn’t make much sense to get into the blow-by-blow; this one was over after the first set. But here are some relevant stats: Murray made 47 unforced errors (more than double his 21 winners) and, serving a mediocre 53 percent, he won just 31 percent of his second-serve points, a tribute to Djokovic’s return proficiency and aggression.

Djokovic, by contrast, converted nearly 70 percent of his first serves and won 60 percent of his second serve points.  It wasn’t as much a case of Murray returning poorly as of Djokovic stepping into those returns to take the initiative.

Murray has now played three major finals against two different opponents, and he hasn’t even won a set in any of them. Djokovic has won two majors (both in Melbourne), and has dropped just one total set in his two finals (to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga). Djokovic has reached out to grab his opportunities, but once again tonight Murray looked as if he were waiting around for opportunities to reach out and grab him.

Virtuoso of the Slow Court

http://blogs.tennis.com/.a/6a00d83451599e69e20148c8290c1f970c-800wi

Andy Murray came out of his service stance and stared up at the retractable roof, where a bird was squawking. It kept squawking. He banged his strings off his palm, unhappy with the tension, and sent a couple of defective racquets off to be restrung. A few points after picking up a new frame, he was banging that one against his palm, too. Murray yelled at his player’s box to give him more energy. He barked at the ball kids to bring him his towel, please. He winced after dozens of shots, either in anguish or in pain. Even the chair umpire had it in for him. When Murray questioned why an obvious out call hadn’t been made, he said that umpire Jake Garner “bit back” at him. It was that kind of night.

More important, of course, were the bites that Novak Djokovic took out of Murray. I had expected the Serb to come out firing, the way he had against Roger Federer—why change a winning game; more precisely, why change that winning game. But he started easily, feeling the match out, trying a little of Murray’s style before he got around to his own. I thought it was a mistake; I though he was showing too much respect for Murray’s defense. I was wrong.

The measured game turned out to be the right game for Djokovic. It settled him in and allowed him to  open up and find his range at his own pace. The shift was subtle, but before you knew it, he was controlling points without taking a lot of risk. He broke it open at 5-4, 15-30. Over the course of a 39-shot rally, Djokovic gave us offense, then defense, then offense, then defense, then O, then D, and on, and on, until he’d won the point and changed the entire match in the process.

“That made a big difference in the momentum,” Murray said. “He really loosened up after that.”

“I was changing the pace, changing the rhythm,” Djokovic said. “I didn’t want to give him the same pace. I wanted to open up the court more and not let him control the points.”

Djokovic loosened up in a big way in the second. There was a Federer-esque, full-flight quality to his performance through the first five games of that set. It was no fluke, either; it was the logical end to two weeks, and two months, of excellent play. In fact, now that I write that, there were also moments over his last three matches when I was reminded of the single-minded, well-regulated aggression that he had brought to the Davis Cup final last December. Somebody on this blog called Djokovic’s form at the Hopman Cup a few weeks ago “ominous.” I had never associated that word with the happy Perth exo before, but he or she was right. He was ominous right up until the final point tonight.

“After we won the Davis Cup,” Djokovic said, “I was feeling great being on the court. I think that had a big effect on this tournament for me.”

What effect did Murray's injury from Friday have on him? He strained a quad in his semifinal, and as he said tonight he wasn’t moving well. There were moments when he clearly pulled up lame, and other moments when he grimaced—though he’s always kind of grimacing out there. Murray said he wasn’t hurt, but maybe a little weary from his last match. Either way, he began the match tight, went straight to agitated, and by the third was pretty well slumped. He played his usual game to a fault. Weary or injured or neither, he failed to change the points’ dynamics, failed to move forward on numerous occasions when he had the chance, and failed to relax at any point and just compete. And there’s always his fundamental issue: a forehand that’s not as powerful or as versatile as most of his opponents’, including Djokovic’s. The Serb can do anything from anywhere with his forehand; Murray can’t. A Slam will likely always elude him unless he can get more out of that stroke.

Of course, whatever you do on your side, you still have to get the ball past Djokovic, which no one in Melbourne found a way to do very often.

“He put up three or four lobs,” Murray said, “that landed right on the line. It’s tough to do anything with those.” On the third of those lobs, Murray looked back down at the line in annoyed disbelief after the point. “How can he put it there?” he seemed to be asking. After the match, Murray was glum, naturally, but he said he felt a lot better than he had after his defeat by Roger Federer last year. Murray claimed that he wasn’t sure why this was, but before the match tonight, he said that in 2010 he had been especially crushed by the squandered set points in the third-set tiebreaker. He never got that far this time. Let’s hope he recovers more quickly than last year.

This match did not signal anything so extreme as a changing of the guard. But it was perhaps the first Grand Slam final contested by the players who came up in the so-far-unnamed “slow-court era.” The combination of modern frames, modern strings, modern physicality, and modern slow courts have produced a distinct style, which Djokovic and Murray both embody. It’s a style of moderation, one that works on all surfaces. It revolves around two-handed backhands that serve as weapons; strong returns and versatile, rather than blistering, serves; a blend of offense and defense; an ability to change the direction of the ball at any time; a basic competence in all aspects of the sport rather than the reliance on a couple of huge weapons; and an emphasis on speed above else.

Every style has its virtuoso performers, and tonight Djokovic showed us that the slow-court game, at its best, can be as dazzling and beautiful as any other. To see it with Djokovic, though, you have to isolate on him. Watch him move. Watch him dance and leap back there—he can play D, then O, then D, then O. His legs look rubbery when he comes down in a split step. He flies low at all times, and he doesn’t have to turn his body away from the net to get a good cut. Where other players' show-off moves are their bomb serves or their inside-out forehands, The Serb’s is the open-stance, abbreviated-swing, sliding backhand get in the corner. It's worth a look.

If Djokovic can track down another player’s best shot with that move and flip a lob into the rafters that lands like a laser on the baseline, there’s only one word for it. Andy Murray knew it early tonight; the rest of the men's tour might be thinking it right now: That’s ominous.
