Nole leaving in the morning instead of hanging around an extra day posing or photos, as he is playing Davis cup next weekend. Such a crazy schedule!
He apologised to the media and bought them all Lindt chocolate. Best bloke. Respects the media's role in the sport, and also a class act to boot.
Grecian dominating Jono.

Novak Djokovic Vs Roger Federer Match Point US Open 2011 - YouTube
Indeed, pretty dull and defensive that first shot. So glad he just blocks things back
I get grecian's point, but I don't think defensive is the term. It gets pretty taxing watching because they're all baseliners who are consistent and rarely miss, so rallies go on for 30 minutes. It's like watching women's tennis sometimes.
Hate to sound like John Newcombe here, but serve volleying is definitely the more attractive brand of tennis.
"consistent and rarely miss" now how I'd describe women's tennis
Only think that stopped last nights match from going longer is the increase in the court speed this year hey Jono?
Why have to get venomous? Genuinely don't see the comparison between the top women's player who paint lines or miss, and Nole, Muzz and Raf.
Only Wozniacki really plays with the defence that they do. At times Radwanska. The rest hit winners or spray errors.
That wasn't part of the analogy. The comparison to women's tennis is that the rallies are boring.
Respectfully disagree. Rafa vs Novak has produced more atg matches than Tsonga, Berdych, Delpo and co. Fed is the best to watch but i think the average tennis watcher prefers seeing slugfests and ridiculous retrieving than seeing the other shot makers. US Open 2011 and Aus Open 2012 finals were received by almost everyone in a positive way, with everyone agreeing we are in a golden era.
They've produced more ATG matches because they're better players. No one is questioning the ability of these players, but I prefer watching two great players with contrasting styles going against each other. Tennis is too attritional now for my liking. I appreciate the ability of the players, and I love Djokovic, but it would be better if one of the top four was a genuine serve volleyer, for example.
Well need to speed up the courts to fix that
