Novak Djokovic and Andy Roddick had two competitions going on last night: the quarterfinal match of the US Open, and a volley of complaints and accusations that should not overly surprise followers of the Serbian No. 3. After taking Roddick down 6-2, 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (5), Djokovic lashed out at the American's earlier suggestions that he was faking injuries.
"You know, Andy was saying I have 16 injuries in the last match. Obviously, I don't—right?" he told interviewers from the court. The pro-Roddick crowd responded with boos that seemed to get to Djokovic, who was more contrite later on. "Maybe I reacted bad in that moment. I apologize. It was impulsive." Djokovic will next face Roger Federer in the semis.
