From his website:

"Iím really sorry guys. I am not feeling well today and unfortunately I have to take a little break today and postpone the #Nole4Ulive gathering..."

He was supposed to do some kind of live chat. I hope it's nothing serious enough to affect his play this week, but it feels like a bad sign to me.

He might pull out then. Gosh! Paris will have no players left soon.

Yes, let's hope for too much champagne! Could be looking good for Murray.

Guys, he's healthy, he's not in a good mood, cause his father Srdjan has health problems and he's in hospital.Novak visited him yesterday, he was in Belgrade for three hours, and immediately there after returned.

Wow. Hope his father is okay. Thanks for the extra insight.

Why doesn't he just say that instead of the vomiting story though?

Djokovic will still be almost 2000 points ahead of Federer even if Djokovic skips Paris. On 05/11/2012 the ranking points will be synchronized with the "race" points as the WTF starts. The absolute best Federer could do is a close second ranking behind Djokovic. But if Murray does well in the next 2 weeks he could snatch #2 away from Federer.

Very possible, just hope his father's health isn't going to be an ongoing issue......

What is wrong with Djok's dad? He has already lost his Grandad now his dad isn't well. What bad luck for Djok! :(. He should just tell the truth though, why say he isn't feeling well?

I don't blame him for that, if that's indeed what's going on. When I'm having personal/family issues, I usually just tell people I'm not feeling well if I have to miss work or cancel plans. It's true in the sense that the stress from whatever's going on at home makes me feel less than 100% physically, and it saves me from having to share more about my personal life than I'm comfortable sharing.

Ms Nadal
10-29-2012, 11:33 AM
Yeah sure. He should just say, personal problems and finish. I hope Djok skips Paris then he should have skipped MC when his grandad wasn't well too. Family is more important than tennis and Djok should get back to Serbia. Priorities!

Funnily enough, this will be Murray's highest year end finish. Even if he doesn't get #2.

I think that Murray can become Number one next year. He needs to ensure that he takes the opportunity.

If Murray wins either the Australian Open or Wimbledon, he will become #1.

I think Djokovic's grandfather died while he was playing the tournament in MC. Therefore I don't think he wanted to pull out in the middle of it without some sort of injury. A lot of pro athletes use sports as an escape also. Recently a guy named Torry Smith who's an American football player played a game hours after his 19 year old brother died, and he had one of the best games of his career. Another American football player named Brett Favre did much the same after his father died.

No. He would have to do more than win another Major to get to #1. However, if Djokovic doesn't win the Australian Open, he would probably be #1 without holding a Major.

There's huge history of family issues, related to Djokovics, Srdjan particularly. I mean, Novak and him have somehow complicated relationship, something like love/hate, there's almost always something to upset him to perform his best .During 2008 wimby, Srdjan and Dijana marriage was in huge crisis, many pople in Serbian community knew that.That's why he played poorly,he lost his focus, and other times, like Serbian open in '09, when Novak literally begged him to leave the stadium, cause Srdjan felt sick.This year during Wimby, again, was reported that he's in conflict with him, cause he want's to separate from them and live his life with Jelena. He's Nervy,short-tempered kind of guy, and Novak knows that.

Some scary fans of Nole. I mean... really scary.Talk to those bunny boilers at your peril Novak is my message. You know, the ones that turn up on your door step at 7am wearing Tatty slippers.


"Get all the rest you need. Take good care of yourself. God bless you Nole. Missing you a lot."

"What a wonderful idea for you to do this it is always wonderful listening to you talking and being you. Looking forward to it already."

"Get some rest and concentrate on the game we will miss talking to you, but we already know what a wonderful person you are"

Yes, because swearing on the court should invalidate someone's fandom of somebody, right? :roll:

Not to say that the messages above aren't "creepy," but look at Safin... he had all the middle-aged, "protective" women into him too.

I would think the rumour about him being ill was an easier story to give for missing the original chat than explaining about his dad being ill. It was probably deliberate, and understandable, mis-direction until he knew what was going on.

At least I hope he's well. Not just for him, but we don't need him spreading germs around the locker room! It's bad enough they're all tired at the WTFs without them all snuffling.
