Google Down the Line!: QUOTE OF THE DAY: NOLE

Wednesday, January 27, 2010


It was unfortunate that I couldn't perform on the level that I wanted to in the fourth and fifth set. I don't want to find excuses for my loss, but, you know, I went to vomit and I had diarrhea before the match. Just a terrible feeling.

- Novak Djokovic after his 7-6(8), 6-7(5), 1-6, 6-3, 6-1 loss to Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the Aussie Open quarterfinals

No comment.

  1. Way TMI, Nole.

    Great match, and congratulations, Jo-Willy! I sure hope they hook you up to an IV for the next 48 hours.

  2. *sob* My poor baby. The only good thing, I guess, is that it's not some kind of chronic injury, so at least he'll be back soon.

    Basically all of the players I support are now ill/injured (Nole, Delpo, Dina, Rafa, Gilles). Am I some sort of curse??

  3. natch: JWT is pumped but Fed has revenge on his mind. I think (read: hope) the Frenchie will take it though Muzz is looking like the champ in the end.

    ds: can on-court sickness be considered chronic? lol

    that is a strange coincidence for sure. keep your comments to a minimum just in case. i like my health.

  4. Totes agree with you on Murray, Richie. He has been playing out of his mind crazay good.
    I just want good matches, though. I'll probably be happy for whoever whomever? the guy that? wins.

    In all my jet lag, I forgot to tell you I have a very funny Nole encounter to tell you about. This probably isn't the post to do it in, ya know...on account of his stomach and intestinal unpleasantness and all. Funny and Montezuma's Revenge don't quite go well together, no?
    When you write another post on him, remind me and I will tell it to you. (Unless you want me to do it here.)

  5. poor nole! he's so honest all the time...even when it's definitely TMI.

  6. Poor Nole, I feel for you baby... :(
    You looked positively sick after crushing Tsonga in the third set, it looked like you were to puke any minute on the court floor. So unfortunate, the match was yours to win. But we all love you anyway, so adje, adje, adje Novak!
    Now Andy win the whole thing and put me out of my misery. This is a weird AO 10.

  7. Alright, Richie. Here it is.
    I was at a restaurant to meet a client. Nole was also there, but I didn't know it at the moment. My client had made a bet with me that I couldn't climb Mount Aconcagua without using oxygen. There was a huge sum going to charity riding on it. Well, I did it! :D (It was the hardest thing I've ever done, but, at the same time, it wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be.)
    Quite naturally, after doing that, I was under the impression that I was the only person to ever climb a mountain. Also? No one had ever climbed a mountain as high as Mount Aconcagua. Am I right?...Am I??
    So when I met with my client in Melbourne to see my big, fat check made out to my favorite charity instead of his, he brought a friend along with him. This friend had also climbed a mountain. One much higher than mine. :'( He had brought a photograph to show me how tall it was. So, with great enthusiasm and in a voice much louder that I realized, I said, "OMG! It's SO BIG!" Nole, who was walking past our table (and only heard me, not the conversation), said, "If only I had a Euro for every time I heard that." :D
    Classic, right?

  8. Natch: OMG!! Nole is made of awesome. :DDDD

    Rich: Also, I'm now ill. *headdesk*

  9. ROFL - yes classic! So much in that story to discuss. Kudos on the mountain climb espesh without oxygen. I can see why the UPS man is a satisfied customer. Oh and Rafa too of course.

    I think you're living the life I was meant to have. Or wish I was meant to have.

    Anyway, I bet Nole's HUGE though you couldn't tell in Montreal when he did that catwalk in briefs. I'll take his word for it. Plus, my upstairs neighbor says he reminds her OF a penis - his body. Maybe that's what he meant. lol

  10. ds,
    hope his comments made you feel better.

    Thanks! *plays theme from "Rocky"* My sole inspiration was the fact my client was going to have to cough up six figures.

    Big, small, or...uh...other...I'm sure Nole was just kidding. It was a great line, though.
    Love your neighbor's philosophy. I'll try picturing him head to toe in a condom next time I see him play.
