Novak at Paribas Masters: “…when will love be secure?”

13 Nov

Novak Paribas


My constantly frazzled tennis nerves usually get a rest between the US Open and Melbourne, but Djok beating Murray too in straight sets, even if only at Paribas — it’s getting kind of unnerving.  When your guy’s game is up and down, you worry about his consistency; when it’s become superhuman in the trail of wreckage it leaves behind, then, of course, you start wondering how long he can keep it up.  Such is the human condition.  Never satisfied.  Never at ease.  Never content.

Especially in love.  “When will labor be joyful? when will love be secure?” — Giosuè Carducci…I think…

From the Bleacher Report:

Novak Djokovic beat Andy Murray 6-2, 6-4 in the BNP Paribas Masters 2015 final to set a new record for Masters titles won in a single year, grabbing his sixth of the season, per tennis writer Carole Bouchard. The Serb already held the previous record of five, which was set in 2011. 

Djokovic dominated Murray from start to finish, once again showing why he’s considered one of the world’s best returners. Murray held his own in the rallies but never found his serve on the slower hard court in Paris.

Per Sky Sports, the Djoker has now beaten Murray 21 times in 30 meetings, and he’s still unbeaten on indoor hard courts against the Scot. Sunday’s win handed him his 58th career title, via bet365.

Djokovic has been in sensational form since the US Open and he instantly put heaps of pressure on Murray’s serve. Fans in Paris were treated to a 20-shot rally on just the second point, but it wasn’t a preview of what was to come.

Murray barely held his serve in the opening game, couldn’t even steal a point on Djokovic’s serve and immediately gave up three break points in the third game….

See the rest.
