    Thanks for these posts! They’re very engaging and interesting. I’m already half in love with young Melzer, just from your description and from that great picture. 🙂 And that Garanganga/Gabashvili moment sounds lovely.

    Novak isn’t my favourite player, but I thoroughly respect his attitude and commitment to the Davis Cup. I couldn’t believe he played out that match! I’ve had a similar injury to my right ankle before, and not being a superhuman Serb, wasn’t able to walk without one of those ankle-boot things for weeks. Novak seems to have come a long way from his retirement-prone days. I hope the injury doesn’t severely affect his clay court season, though.

    I wonder how Troicki feels – his teammate and friend would rather play on an injured ankle and risk aggravating it into a severe problem that could wipe out his clay court season than turn the fate of the tie over to him. That’s gotta sting a little bit, even though the decision did win them the tie.
