Did you see that coming? I didn't see that coming...Did anyone see that coming?
Novak Djokovic was sent packing earlier today after running into a hot German in Philipp Kohlschreiber (29th seed). Straight sets, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4, and away we go.
With Djokovic's loss, Roger Federer avoids what was a previously a hot clay-court player and sits with a much easier path to the finals. That is of course if the German doesn't show us this again.
Novak had much to complain about unable to find his timing, rhythm, and of course breaks. A set-back in his season, but not all is lost...
Other advances today include: Mofils, Del Potro, Tsonga, Federer, and the very surprising Andy Roddick! Roddick has surpassed his best previous effort (3rd round), and is doing it in style with another straight set victory. He will have a very intriguing battle ahead against Gael Monfils (The "Diver").
Gael took out Melzer and in the process provided a highlight reel point with a stunning baseline dive to reach a shot and ultimately won the point bringing the fans to their feet. I thought those types of moves only existed in video games. Unreal!
Enjoy the Sunday tennis!
