Novak Djokovic wins Australian Open

with one comment

In what has to be the biggest sporting upset of all time, Novak Djokovic has beaten Andy Murray to claim his second Australian Open title.

Murray played at about 30% of his normal best and Novak played at around 112% capacity (anything less wouldn’t have done it).  And the gulf in performance was just too much.  If Murray could have just raised his game to 45% to 50% of normal, I think he could have walked this match.  But alas it wasn’t to be.

So, well done Novak (I guess).

For Andy Murray, he now turns to Roland Garros, where I am sure he will be victorious.

Like the old saying goes, it’s better to be lucky than good.


Novak winning 2 – 0

Not looking good.

What an upset this would be.  Against all odds, the unfancied Serb might just pull off the biggest victory of his career.

Let’s hope not.

I love Andy Murray, and he deserves to win

Well, that’s now 4-0 in favour of murray.

But will it be enough?  Murray has been trying to hold serve for about 15 minutes now!

Serbian Vote just in from Ana Ivanovic!

Well, I think you’d all agree that what this woman doesn’t know about tennis, isn’t worth knowing.

I’ll quite happily state that she’s the best female tennis player in Serbia.  Well, obviously Ana is from Serbia, Novak is from Serbia too, so we know where this vote has gone…

or do we?

No, in a shock twist, Ana has revealed to me that she has to be true to herself and that in her heart she knows that this final belongs to Murray.

Wow folks, I didn’t see that one coming.  Let’s tally up the scores:

Murray vs Djokovic

Denmark                                   Murray Win

England                                     Murray Win

Serbia                                         Murray Win

Sorry Novak old chap, but I have to follow my heart

England’s Vote is in…

It'll be like shooting fish in a barrel!


There you have it folks, another vote for the murray camp, and that sends him into a 2-0 lead thus far.  Hopefully a good omen for the final.

The build up to the final starts now.

Expect many rants from me on the inevitability of Murrays win tomorrow.

But don’t take it from me, let’s listen to the number one female player in the world, and see what the Classy, beautiful, radiant, lovely, danish princess has to say on it all…

You can win it Andy, I know you can.

Well, there you have it.  Denmark has cast their vote.

Now I’ll be starting a table of countries, and picking a famous celebrity or sports person to give me their opinion on whether Murray or Djokovic will win.
