Andy wore him out in Miami.

It is the survival of the fittest and the wisest after all. Besides, Ferrer is almost 31.

He did have his thigh (right one?) messaged a couple of times in the 3rd set. Did Andy not complain about it? The match was long but if you think about it, they have both played longer matches in the past. Ferrer wasn’t looking particularly goo this year anyway.

When you think about it, he has a good record of knackering the most physical players in the sport.

USO 2008 vs Rafa, had him bent over clutching his knees whilst gasping for breath after a huge rally to earn match point.
USO 2012 vs Novak - Djokovic absolutely ****** by the end of that 5th set, could barely move.
Miami 2013 vs Ferrer - physically collapsed from cramp.

There's so little between the four of them in terms of endurance, but does Andy just edge it?

Barring the blisters, I'd say yes.

Marijan Vajda on Sky Sports today in an interview this morning that Novak Djokovic had dislocated a bone in his ankle.

Well he's on court right now and comm has just mentioned that, but says surely Djoko wouldn't risk the next two Masters and possibly RG if he thought the injury was going to be aggravated, so Shrug

Have just been looking up dislocated ankle bones and it seems it is a longterm recovery with the ankle in a cast or well strapped and rested for a long time to avoid recurrence.  How can Nole be playing like that?  If he is it does seem a bit stupid to risk further injury just to play in Monaco.  He would also be risking his future playing tennis.

I don't understand it either tamila and the comms seem a little perplexed as well.  All Djoko will say is that his ankle is still painful but that the pain is easing despite playing matches, which doesn't sound like the injury is a problem.  Also there's nothing wrong with his movement round the court, certainly not from the way he was running around it today.

However given that the dislocation information was given out second hand (I think by his coach) has something got a bit lost in translation?

When Nole's coach was interviewed I thought he said it was a dislocation of a bone in his foot and that the physios had put it back. Having watched how he has been moving on the court yesterday and today I don't think there is much wrong with his ankle, foot or anywhere else. I often wonder if there are not mind games played by the Nole camp.

In fairness there's absolutely no doubt that he did twist his ankle during that DC match but he was able to go on playing, which doesn't suggest a dislocation.
