Nole Open Not That Much Fun For Nole

Posted by gauloises1 on May 7, 2010

Novak Djokovic beat Fabio Fognini 64 64 for a place in the quarterfinals at his home tournament – but he doesn’t seem too happy:

“I don’t want to go into details too much, but I have some health issues that are hampering me and it’s very important for me to be fully fit, because playing on clay demands immense physical efforts. I’ve been going through a difficult period over the past couple of months. It’s springtime and I have a strong allergic reaction to pollen. It’s never been this bad and no medications are helping it,” says Djokovic.

Poor Nole. Allergies sound like a mild irritation, but they can be really debilitating. And I’ve never tried to play professional tennis while suffering. I can’t imagine that can be anything other than miserable.

Although …

… every cloud has a silver lining, eh?

Nole will play Filip Krajinovic next, the adorable youngster, who beat Horacio Zeballos 76(5) in the third for a huge upset win for him. This is a good thing.

Sorry, Onion, but Filip was here first.

    Oh, Marat, still so hot. I hear Gerard Butler stopped by to watch a Nole match. I want to go to there.

      Butler was there, and he end up with certain Serbian blond, he’s not so into tennis.

      Yep Filip won!!! He reminds me of young Safin. I love him.

      PS. I think that Marat already left the town.

    Filip is totally giving me an old school young Aaron Krickstein vibe in the last picture.

    Marat is in the city and the air has thickened due to feromone overload.
    Women and men are gasping for air.

    Also, Gerard Butler during Nole’s match yesterday
