Carlos Berlocq: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

Carlos Berlocq in Umag, Croatia

What he said:

"This guy is from another planet."

Carlos Berlocq was served a double bagel by No. 1 seed, Novak Djokovic in his second round match at the US Open. The Argentinean recovered somewhat to take two games off the Serb’s serve but was unable to hold serve himself. The final score: 6-0,6-0, 6-2.

Djokovic learned that he cannot please everyone despite running away victor in 90 minutes.

"One of the guys actually on the way out said: ‘Hey, listen, I paid 100 bucks. You’re staying an hour and a half on the court. That’s a lot to pay for a ticket. Give me something so I get back home with a happy face. Give me a racquet or something."

What he really meant:

“Gravity has no effect on Novak—this year.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“If Novak only had pointy ears, I’d have no trouble terming him Spock (of Star Trek).”
