RG Day Seven: Novak Djokovic Loses in Third Round
Posted by gauloises1 on May 30, 2009
So I was all set to do some fairly cheerful results blogging.
And then this happened.
Philipp Kohlschreiber defeated Novak Djokovic in straight sets, 64 64 64.
I literally can’t process this, and I don’t think I’m the only one. The crowd were oddly quiet, even the commentators when Kohlschreiber was serving for the match were talking about what Nole would need to do to get back into the match. I kept expecting Nole to get his shit together and start to really play. I feel like I’m still expecting him to.
Don’t get me wrong, Kohlschreiber played remarkably well, and all credit to him. But Nole just wasn’t there. He didn’t even seem to really care that he was losing.
I’m totally gutted. Congratulations to PEHK though …
Well. This has put the cat among the pigeons, eh?
