Novak Djokovic Makes A Comeback In The Serbia Open

Novak Djokovic displayed superb tennis against his in-form countryman, Miomir Kecmanovic on the second day at the Serbia Open. After suffering from a set and a break down on Thursday, the World No. 1 advanced to the semi-finals with 4-6, 6-3, 6-3 in his native Belgrade.

• Djokovic is chasing a third title in the Serbia Open and a fourth ATP Tour title

How The Match Progressed?

Djokovic got less than 24 hours to relax after winning the previous game against Laslo Djere. A tired Djokovic lost the opening set to Kecmanovic without giving any fight. He even missed a break chance in each of the first four games to the second. Soon Djokovic gathered his strength and began to improve his performance from the baseline to level the match.

It was a two-hour-and-eighteen-minute game in which Djokovic won the final four games of the deciding set. He just dropped two points in the process but didn’t face any break point in the stanza.

Oh My Dog

Oh My Dog Movie Review

Based On The Emotional Bonding Between A Kid And Blind Pup, The Movie Is Bogged Down By Careless Writing

Oh My Dog has been released and the first reviews are out but there is little excitement among the audiences. The film is predictable right from the beginning and some characters are forced into the story from nowhere just to keep it moving. The only thing that makes the movie watchable is three generations of actors working together.

Story

Fernanado (Vinay Rai) is a rich dog owner who breeds the best canines for winning international dog shows, and luckily, he is just one win away from creating a world record of consistently winning dog shows. Sadly, one of his pups is born blind and he decides to eliminate that pup. But the canine somehow escapes from his clutches.

Here enters little Arjun (Arnav Vijay) in the movie. The kid finds the blind pup and brings the dog home. He raises the blind dog despite family objections and friends making fun of the canine. The compassionate child calls the dog, Simba. Arjun’s father Shankar (Arun Vijay) wants to help his child despite differences with his father Vijaykumar.

Arjun takes Simba to a … Read the rest
