Andy Murray claimed his seventh straight win as he dispatched US Open champion Marin Cilic 6-1, 6-4 in the China Open quarter-finals Friday.

Murray will face world No. 1 Novak Djokovic in Saturday’s semifinals. It will be the pair’s 22nd meeting, and Djokovic leads by 13 winnings. The Serb has won both their contests this season, in four sets in the US Open quarter-finals and in straight sets in the Miami quarter-finals.

“It’s always difficult against Novak,” said Murray. “His form here, he’s never lost, which is very impressive.

“I’m aware it’s going to be an extremely difficult match tomorrow. But it will be very good for me to get that match and see if I can make some improvements from the US Open.

“If I play like I did at the US Open, I’ll definitely give myself an opportunity in the match. It’s going to be a good test and I look forward to it.”

Djokovic beat Grigor Dimitrov with a 6-2, 6-4 victory in the very same day as he improved to a 22-0 mark at the China Open.

“Every time I play Andy, it’s a huge challenge. It’s a very physical match. A lot of long rallies, exchanges. I do not expect anything less than that tomorrow,” said Djokovic.

Each letter of the first name rules 9 years of life.  Ages 27 to 54 are ruled by the sum of the fourth, fifth, and sixth letters of the name and the day of birth.

[Since his first name only has five letters and he has no middle name, the first name is repeated].

1 (a is the 1st letter of the first name) + 11 (k is the 11th letter of the alphabet) + 14 (N is the 14th letter of the alphabet) + 22 (born on the 22nd of the month) = 48

So the numbers 22 (born on the 22nd of the month), 26 (sum of the fourth, fifth and sixth letters of the name), and 48 (22+26=48) rule his ages twenty-seven to fifty-four.

22 = Lucky.  Joking.  The joker.  Being silly.  Clowning around.  You’ve got to be kidding me.

Novak-djokovic2_600

September 12, 2011    5:58pm

For more than four hours Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal played punishing tennis that was also beautiful. They grunted and groaned and sent tennis balls straight at each over, over each other, around each other.

And after it appeared Djokovic was down and out, when he had lost the third set and was groaning on the sidelines while a trainer stretched and pulled and pounded on his aching back, the 24-year-old from Serbia came out for more.

Djokovic played the final games as if pain didn’t matter and, after making a sign of the cross, Djokovic bounced the ball 10 times, hit a serve and then a forehand winner, a massive thing that left Nadal almost immobile.

For the sixth time in a row Djokovic beat Nadal 6-2, 6-4, 6-7 (3), 6-1, in 4 hours 10 minutes. The win made Djokovic 64-2 this year, gave him his first U.S. Open title and also placed him among the all-time greats.

He became the sixth man to win three of the four major titles in the same year since tennis’ open era began in 1968. He won the Australian Open over Andy Murray in the final and beat Nadal in the Wimbledon final.

Overall, this was Djokovic’s fourth major title. His first was at the Australian Open in 2008.

“It’s been an incredible year,” said Djokovic, who put on a blue baseball cap with FD/NY on it in honor of New York City firefighters, a day after the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

The second-seeded Nadal, the defending champion, said, “Obviously I am disappointed now. This guy is doing unbelievable things.” Then he looked toward Djokovic and said, “What you did this year is probably impossible to repeat, so well done.”

After dropping the first two games of the first set, Djokovic began opening up the court with his swift movement and Nadal started to grow frustrated at watching some of his shots get shifted by a swirling, late-afternoon wind. Djokovic began making Nadal run corner to corner and from baseline to net and won six games in a row.

After 53 minutes, Djokovic served a love game and Nadal dropped his head as he walked to his seat on the changeover. The Spaniard had his serve broken three times in a row to end the set.

The third game of the second set encompassed enough ovation-causing tennis for an entire match. It lasted 17 minutes 15 seconds, and while trying to defend a sixth break point, Nadal, who appeared positioned for a winning overhead, slammed the ball into the net into the net.

If Nadal had held serve, he would have grabbed a 3-0 lead. Instead it was Djokovic who pumped his fist, came out after the changeover and held serve at love.

It was a game of momentous physical tennis, with both players grunting loudly. Djokovic has a two-toned sound, Nadal’s grunt is deeper and at the end of points and it made that single game sound symphonic.

But after all the running forehands and sharp volleys and topspin ground strokes and lobs, it was one huge error by Nadal, who overhit a forehand volley into the net, that gave Djokovic the service break and made the start of the second set too much like the first for Nadal’s taste.Nadal could have gone ahead 3-0 and carried the crowd’s momentum. Instead, Djokovic held on to win the second set as well.Nadal might have lost total grasp of the match in the fourth game of the third set, when he wasted two break points. But he finally scored on the third to even the set at 2-2.

As had happened three times previously, though, Djokovic broke back. In a game that was filled with baseline rallies of bravado and drop shots of touch, Djokovic took the advantage again, up 3-2, and this time it seemed as if the Spaniard might not have enough belief left to win. Nadal was smiling almost in agony when he sat in his chair on the changeover.

Except it was Djokovic who soon looked suddenly vulnerable.

In the next game Djokovic started stretching his back in between points, served up a double fault and was broken at love. The crowd was roaring in support of Nadal, even during points, sometimes so loudly that Djokovic would cup his racket to his ear or mimic a “shush” move with his fingers to his lips.

And in the 11thgame, after the two stayed on serve to get to 5-all, Djokovic struck suddenly. With his 20thbreak point chance of the match, Djokovic cracked a backhand winner that hit the baseline and took a 6-5 lead.

With the chance to serve out the match, though, Djokovic was sent diving into splits as Nadal won one point, and the Serb hit a forehand long on break point to send the third set into a tiebreaker.

And it was all Nadal in the tiebreak. The Spaniard took a 5-1 advantage and won on his second set point with a forehand return winner. During the changeover, Djokovic called for the trainer, who worked on the Serb’s back.

After Djokovic held serve to open the fourth set, he called for the trainer again and used an injury timeout, during which the trainer worked on his back, massaging and pummeling Djokovic’s body as Djokovic had been doing to the tennis ball.

And then Djokovic won another two games to take a 3-0 lead to send the match running away from Nadal.

Surprise ... Novak Djokovic's pre-Wimbledon media conference was gatecrashed by Caroline Wozniacki.

June 20th, 2011

Novak Djokovic faced a surprise grilling from Caroline Wozniacki on Saturday as  the women’s world No.1 gatecrashed his pre-Wimbledon media conference. Djokovic  was at a press conference before the start of the grass-court grand slam on  Monday when fun-loving Wozniacki took a seat in the interview room and began to  fire light-hearted questions at the Serb. Both players have well-earned  reputations as locker room jokers and their ”interview” lasted several  minutes, to the amusement of the assembled media. Wozniacki asked Australian  Open champion Djokovic how he planned to bounce back after the end of his  43-match winning run. Djokovic, beaten by Roger Federer in the French Open  semi-finals, replied: ”You know what? I will try to look up to some women  players who have been so consistent with their wins, for example like Caroline  Wozniacki. I don’t know if you’ve heard about her. She’s been winning so much.  She’s become a role model for all of us ATP players. So I’m going to try to look  at some of her matches and try to break this losing streak of one.” When  Wozniacki asked who his favourite female player was, Djokovic revealed that the  friends are neighbours in Monaco as he said: ”I think I already discovered one  of my favourite women’s players. I just said her name. She’s actually my  neighbour as well.  She’s a really nice girl. She’s a great entertainer.”

Novak Djokovic

11:20 GMT, Sunday, 30 January 2011

Novak Djokovic outplayed Andy Murray to win the Australian Open for the second time and end the Briton’s hopes of a first Grand Slam title.

The 23-year-old Serbian won 6-4 6-2 6-3 in a stiflingly hot Melbourne to regain the title he first won in 2008 and condemn Murray to a third defeat in Grand Slam finals.

Murray had been hoping to become the first British man to claim a major title since Fred Perry won the US Open in 1936, and Scotland’s first ever Grand Slam singles champion, but he was overpowered by the world number three.

Djokovic went into Sunday’s final a slight favourite having beaten reigning champion Roger Federer in straight sets in the semi-finals, and with the confidence of having won the Australian title in 2008.

Murray, seeded fifth, has always claimed not to be affected by his nation’s clamour for a Grand Slam champion, but his own desire to land a major title after twice losing in finals brings enough pressure and he made a nervous start.

Djokovic hammered some heavy forehands in the Briton’s opening service game and earned a break point, but a loose error let Murray off the hook and the Scot edged through a tense 15-minute game.

Murray then immediately had a half-chance of his own on the Djokovic serve, only to miss a smash at 15-30, but the rhythm was set and both men knew they were in for a battle.

The decisive moment came with Murray serving to stay in the set at 4-5, 15-30 down and a gripping 38-stroke rally which the Briton looked like winning on several occasions, only for Djokovic’s amazing powers of recovery to eventually force the error.

606: DEBATE

A forehand error from Murray then gave up the first set after a gruelling 59 minutes and the more assertive style of Djokovic was holding sway, a beautiful lob helping him to a love service game at the start of the second set.

With Murray making fewer than 50% of first serves, Djokovic was able to draw his man into lengthy rallies and dominate with his greater power and incredible movement.

The second break point of the match was seen off by Murray with an ace but when he went for a drop shot on the third moments later, Djokovic was onto it in a flash to sweep away a backhand winner.

As well as Djokovic was playing, it was Murray who was the major contributor to his falling a double-break down in game four as he netted a volley and then pushed a forehand long.

The Scot, who had been close to a two-set deficit in his semi-final against David Ferrer, avoided the dreaded bagel by seeing off a set point at 5-0 down before finally breaking the Djokovic serve to love as he began to go for his shots with the set seemingly gone.

But any hope that he would take some of that momentum into the third set disappeared as the relentless Djokovic broke the Murray serve for the third time to close out the set.

Murray, who had now lost all eight sets he had played in Grand Slam finals, was facing the monumental task of taking the irrepressible Djokovic to five, but he took a first step on that journey by firing a forehand winner to break at the start of the third.

It did not signal a significant shift in fortunes, though, as within minutes he was shouting angrily towards his mother Judy and team of coaches in his player’s box after a desperately poor smash handed the advantage straight back.

Djokovic was closing in now and heaped the pressure on at 2-1, refusing to give up the game after Murray valiantly saved six break points and seizing the seemingly vital break with a magnificent backhand down the line past the helpless Briton.

The route to the finish line was not to be straightforward, with the apparently hopeless situation appearing to relax Murray as it had in the second set, and he fought his way back to level, saving more break points on his way to 3-3.

Djokovic was not to be denied though and bludgeoned his way to a 17th break point of the day at 4-3 with some more fearsome forehands, and Murray duly netted under the pressure to leave the Serbian serving for the title.

There was to be no late reprieve for the Briton as Djokovic came through an understandably edgy final game to secure his second Grand Slam title, and leave Murray still waiting for a first.
