Brave Lleyton

By all accounts he didn't disgrace himself. He lost in four sets to Novak Djokovic:


Nothing rhymes with failure like Australia. As with Gallipoli, so many of our great moments come in what are considered failures. As with Breaker Morant in the Boer war, these moments often come from people that are disliked, even despised.

Djokovic:
"I have to give credit to my opponent, to Lleyton. He never gives up. He is a great competitor and he obviously made me play an extra shot,"

Impressive two days ago, defeated today. Brave.

Today's rooster, tomorrow's feather duster. But it depends on whose scoreboard you're looking at as to whether you can be considered a winner.
