Novak Djokovic Gossip

Novak Djokovic gossip, latest news, photos, and video.

Dear Gossips,

Paris. Roland Garros. Where Rafa has ruled for a decade. Rafa is King. Was king? No one knows yet if that moment will become THE moment, the kind of moment when everything changes. And he’s certainly not talking like he wants it to become that particular moment. But it’s hard not to think that way. So this is where I’m starting today because I would have gotten yelled at for ending the day with it yesterday, his birthday.

Rafa was gracious afterwards. He’s been kicking Novak’s ass for almost 10 years on red clay. Following Novak’s convincing victory though, he declared that his opponent is “probably in the best moment of his career”. So that’s what Andy Murray’s dealing with tomorrow. A note on Andy Murray though – and something to read for everyone, not just those of you who follow tennis.

Andy is the first superstar male athlete to work with a female coach, Amelie Mauresmo. He has endured ridicule for it. He has been criticised for it. He has had to defend it. Click here to read about his partnership with Mauresmo…and what a Mauresmo-Murray championship would mean.

Yours in gossip,

Rafael Nadal and girlfriend Xisca Perello were at a wedding this weekend in Spain. Cuuuuuute! I love him! I love them! Rafa is enjoying some down time before he prepares for the final slam of the season, the US Open. Mostly they care about the title, but he and Novak Djokovic are #2 and #1 on the tour and the tournament will likely also determine who’s on top to end 2014. Full Story

On clay. This is for my cousin Cat who loves Rafa so much, with a lot of stress, and probably didn’t sleep well last night thinking about this morning. It turns out the rain delay helped him. He came out hard today, finishing off Novak Djokovic in the fourth set, despite being down a break when they suspended the match yesterday. Full Story

I have been up for way too long. Why is Australia so far away? Was watching the Murray-Djokovic semi-final at the Australian open, a sick 5 setter that resulted, ultimately, in a Novak win just about an hour ago. And he will meet Rafael Nadal who defeated Roger Federer yesterday. Well that’s not a bad first Slam final of the year, non? You know me - I am for Rafa, always. Full Story
