Showtime for Novak
So maybe Novak Djokovic's quarterfinal against Carlos "Guns" Moya lacked the electric energy or drama of Roger and Andy's uber-hyped showdown the night before. Still, it was nice to see the young Serb send the old Mallorcan packing even when he wasn't playing at his highest level. And downright delightful to see was Novak's post-match show in which he performed two of his increasingly famous impressions of fellow top players on command: first a dead-on rendering of Sharapova's pre-serve prance and bounce, then a send-up of Rafael Nadal's baseline jig, underwear adjustment and all. With the silliness out of the way, it's time for Novak to dig in for two more serious matches on his way to Serbian Grand Slam First One!
