Jeez. 1:30. Djok v Musetti 2 sets all. I'm knackered they look ok. Although Djok is puffing a bit more than normal. :lol:

Watching Hurkacz v Dimitrov and a pigeon lands on the centre of the net. Stupid or brave? I think we know the answer.

Amazing what a few painkillers can do!

...any injuries aside, is Djokovic playing himself into form with the last two long matches?

I must admit, I thought he was done.
I layed him at 6 greened up at 8
I layed him again at 8.4 and traded out at 4
Lost £21 :roll:

It's very difficult to expect a 37 year-old to be playing 5 sets at 3am and then ask him to come back 36 hours later to play another 5 set match. He looked stiff as a board at one point

Surely going to lengthen his odds in the next match?

Judging by Ruud's earlier matches it could be another long one especially if both have signs of fatigue

Very interesting to see Ruud has been backed from 2.22 to 1.84 favourite

The market clearly thinks this might be one match too far for Novak

Disaster for all those with massive greens on Ruud

The pressure on the best players is huge. Football is currently saying 3 days recovery is OK but 2 is pushing the limits. 2 5 setters.
He fiinshed on Sunday at 3am after 4.5 hrs (ie 3 footy games where it's you and the opponent, no loafing about while the ball is over the side) and was back on court on Monday and won.
Thats not just professional - it's superhuman.
But it looks like they schedule (and too much clay :) ) broke him.
Shame I like watching him. But it gives the next generation a shot at a major.

come join me in the ATP/WTA 125 & 250 world, rain delays at points force players to play again on the same day with a few hours break.

TEAM INFO. Novak Djokovic decided to have meniscus surgery this Wednesday morning in Paris. His unavailability should last at least three weeks and deprive him of Wimbledon. His participation in the Olympics will depend on his reaction to this intervention.

Injuries like that can be far more difficult to recover from as you get older. That reminds me of Federer. He took some time out after Wimbledon for what was considered a relatively minor knee problem, but we never saw him again
