    Is Djokovic now in better form than at the AO?

    hard to tell thanks to the awful opposition he has been facing. TBH we won't be able to tell untill the Final. He will crush Injurederer easily in straights

    He beat the best Murray we'd ever seen at AO. Nothing to judge him by thusfar at Wimbledon.

    I think his serve has really improved, and his ability to keep the UEs very low is very amazing as well.
    I think he's very determined to win it all.

    At the very least this is the best Nole has looked since the Australian Open. I said after the French open that the real problem with his game was mainly his serve. He's sorted that out and he's looking very formidable.

    Kinesis tape is a sign of mental weakness, it doesn't do anything that can be proven. It is just all in the mind. Fascial unloading is just face palm. Top athletes use it as they are hypersensitive, therefore ND is a top athlete.

    Well that's a summary for dummies anyhow.

    It is the best he looked since Miami. He was virtually unplayable at that event.

    Djoko has been great all year, only lost 5 matches (and 3 were to Nadal). So basically he's only lost 2 matches (but this year Nadal has control over him, so add the 3 more losses). Djoko is the same player as last year.

    Other than having a worse break point defence record?

    Djoko won a close 4-setter over Tomic last year at Wimbledon. I can't remember if that was mainly Tomic's greatness or lapses from Djoko, but either way it wasn't impressive.

    No.. he's lost 5 matches. There's no asterisk; last year he was beating Nadal, so they count. Why wouldn't they?

    The difference between Djokovic in 2011 and 2012, is Nadal's level. Djokovic is the same player.

    He hasn't played anyone decent. He has a free ride to the semis.

    yess.. losing to Isner in IW was Djokovic's level. Clowning against Hewitt who could barely walk was Djokovic's level of 2011. NSK stop trolling. The way he lost to Nadal was far from impressive too

    Exactly. By the way his ****s talk one would think he is playing top 5 players every single round and mopping the floor with them. It's laughable. :lol:


    And enough about the tape on his arm. He is not injured,and is fine. Possum is one of his many nicknames for a reason.
