I gained a lot of respect for Djokovic. He could've easily tanked this match (especially after losing the 1st set), but he pulled himself together and got the win for his grandfather.

I've noticed the same trait in the world's  #1 ranked players also.

N3 he is staying. Surprised he is not attending the funeral.

Djokovic had considered withdrawing before his third-round match on Thursday, which came only a few hours after he'd received the bad news.

''Yeah, I did. But I'm a professional and life goes on,'' he said. ''I know that I cannot change anything now. Obviously, it's what life gives you and takes (from) you. It's a normal circle of life. I was very close to him, so it was a big loss for me.

''Anytime is the wrong time to receive that news. Today was a bit better, but still a lot of emotional ups and downs throughout the match. I got to the semifinals, which is big result for me under the circumstances.''

Because of his tennis commitments, Djokovic will be unable to make the funeral back home in Serbia.

''No, it's not possible. It's a very sensitive thing to talk about really,'' he said. ''Every religion has a different way of proceeding, the funerals, life itself.''

yeah I would have thought he'd at least leave for the funeral, which is supposedly on Saturday? Maybe another slow start tomorrow.

Joker will never be right in his life again. So wtf is a tennis tournament any way ? There will be many of those in his life but only 1 time to bury and see your granpa for the last time. I no longer have any respects for this little person. Never wish bad on anyone before even if my they lost me money but Joker you can go ahead and roll an ankle 2marrow.
