I don't love Novak's night kit (who puts shiny appliques on the thighs? Sergio Tacchini, that's who), but that doesn't matter. I thought he played really well last night in his straight set win. Once he made some adjustments to deal with the hard hitting Gimeno-Traver, he was en fuego. Got to the net quite a bit (Coach Todd was in attendance) and showed some remarkable hitting off his forehand side. He also showed some nice fired-up-calmness during the tight moments of the first set. No dejected Nole this time.
You know what a Nole win means, right? Shirtlessish pics for DonkeyGrooming:
