  1. I’ve never been a fan of Djokovich, but I do admire his grace as well.

    I’m thrilled to see Delpo move on, and hope he can do well in the next round.

    • He’s in a battle right now, with his centre-court opponent being Portuguese, which is enough for the Brazilians to go nuts behind him – esp. against an Argentine 🙂

  2. It’s hard to imagine that someone so humble in defeat, extremely more so than Federer or Nadal, is not as well loved as them. I’ve never been on the Fed or Nadal bandwagon, but I’ve always admired the combination of Djokovic’s personality and gumption as a player. And I have never felt comfortable rooting against him when one of my favourite underdogs play him.

    • I see and understand why a lot of people don’t like him.
      At the same time, I have mad respect for how he’s driven himself to be the best, and for his grace in defeat – which was there even when he was a little punk.
