Pouille powerless to find any solution to dominant Djokovic

It’s not about being a woman or a man: Lucas Pouille's message of equality for coach Amelie Mauresmo wins day at Rod Laver Arena

"It's not about being a man or a woman, it's about knowing tennis and about having a good state of mind". "Every professional athlete wants to be in that zone where everything flows so effortlessly and you are executing automatically everything that you are intending to execute". Serbia's Novak Djokovic reacts after winning his match against France's Lucas Pouille.

"I guess you're driven by some force that takes over you, and you feel divine".

"I didn't have time to put a strategy in the match", the 28th seed told reporters. "When he's like this, he's unbelievable", he said. With his shotmaking skills working for him, Pouille has a punchers chance to this thing a step further.

"Maybe it's the fact they have children and then they have to leave the children", said Mauresmo, who brought her two children with her to Melbourne. Despite never getting out of the first round in his past five appearances at the Australian Open, the world number 31 now finds himself just one match away from the tournament final.

For someone who had made it somewhat of a certainty in life to remain entrenched in the top five of the ATP rankings, Djokovic's ranking dropped as low as 22, but his self-belief never faded. It gave Djokovic a spot in the semifinals at Melbourne Park for the first time since 2016, when he won his second straight title and his fifth in six years. The Serb has not had the most convincing of tournaments, being challenged by Canadian Denis Shapavalov, and Russian Daniil Medvedev, losing a set to each, in his third and fourth round matches respectively.

But if Pouille can pull off the upset and unquestionably the biggest win of his career Friday, you can bet his coach will be a major reason.

Four Arrested for Plotting to Attack Southern Tier Muslim Community
Two years ago, a Tennessee man was sentenced to almost 20 years in prison for plotting to attack the enclave. Three of the four males knew each other through their participation in Boy Scouts, Phelan said.

"But I've said it before, and I always have plenty of belief in myself, and I think the self-belief is something that always prevails".

"We have slightly different rules this year with super tiebreak so I don't think we'll go that far as nearly six hours".

"(It's) just so impressive how Novak's been able to switch the lights back on after two years of trying to figure out the problem", he said. No Frenchman had beaten him in 27 previous matches at the Grand Slams, his last defeat coming against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at the 2010 quarter-finals in Melbourne. It makes you alert from the very first point. "Everyone I know talks very highly of Amelie, as a person and coach".

Novak Djokovic is relishing a blockbuster Australian Open final against "greatest rival" Rafael Nadal after dispatching Lucas Pouille in "divine" fashion on Friday.

Djokovic says his competition with Nadal reaches such a pitch that he can remember matches in which he wished both could have been declared winners. The 14-time major victor was hampered by injuries for 18 months before returning to peak form in 2018 to pick up the titles at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.
