    It is titled "Serve to Win"

    Should it not be "Serb to Win?"

    I'll still buy it even if Djokovic doesn't share some of his more "private" reasons for success, most people's bodies really aren't designed to process gluten and I believe it can help anyone in their day to day life, especially a competitive athlete. Nadal's and Agassi's books were both very interesting, still gotta read Connors.

    eating gluten while having a gluten allergy kinda does make you feel like shhit. not saying that was or wasn't the only thing he did, but it does make a notable difference in anyone.

    Maybe it helps a bit, but if he were so ill with a gluten allergy, I highly doubt he would have been able to be a highly competitive athlete. I also doubt that with all of his resources, they wouldn't have found this supposed allergy years ago. I don't buy this story and never will.

    well, it's always good to question things you dont know for sure, i guess. but i do know eating less gluten with a gluten allergy helps, and in today's physical tennis every little bit counts.

    If there is a top player who uses illegal stuff it is Nadal. That is clear for a long time to anyone who is impartial, not biased and not butthurt hater.

    Out of interest, what would allow anyone to play long back to back matches then?

    You have 0 proof of what you're talking about. But I wish there were!
    But for Djoko there is a serious doubt: his mutation from a guy who couldnt finish 3 set matches to a machine in less than a year...

    Sorry, but you are being hypocritical, just like posters above. You also have 0 proof of what you are talking about.
    All these talks about Djokovic who was "not able to finish 3 set match before 2011" are lies, plain and simple, which were disproved by facts many times

    Beside that, how was Nadal able to play two 5 set matches in AO SF and Final in 2009, how is that different than Djokovic's 2012, for example? Also Federer's 2004 is not different than Djokovic's 2011 at all.

    You people should get of your high horses and check some facts. Too many butthurt fans here, who can't stand that Djokovic is ahead of their idols for the last 2 years.

    Sorry, but after that classless and rude comment about Djokovic's deceased coach, you lost all arguments.

    Awesome. Love all books about Tennis.
    Going to read this one.
    Personally I know about Gluten and other food allergies. I got them!
    Mercury poisioning wrecked my body and that was the results.
    When I dont eat gluten and dairy I am a machine. On it brain dead and listless. Like a drunk hangover.
    Open Agassi was epic!

    Djokovic is just taking after The Prototype: Team Nadal.

    Hey gotta pay to play!
    At least Djokovic has a "before".
    Nadal only has an "after".
    Disgusting is right about the NadFans.
    Totally zero objective reasoning.
    Is it related to the instant gratification generation thing?

    Please Djokovic win the USO! (Murray and Lendl might have something to say about that) :)

    No I am really serious. Everything I wrote is truth.
    The one who is trolling (or is irrational butthurt hater) is you? Your arguments are not true, you intentionally lie in order to falsely accuse player, you are being hypocritical, ...

    Do you have two eyes in your head and two brain cells to rub together? If so you should be able to see the difference from the Cvac on 2010 and the Cvac of 2011. Cvac limped out of 2010 the same wheezing weakling he had always been, only to show up in 2011 a totally different player. Or are you trying to tell me that it is normal for Cvac to slaughter everyone in his path for 7 months, not losing a single match the whole time? Is it also normal for him to increase his stamina/endurance like he has when he showed no signs of that kind of ability before in his entire career? How about the mysterious Dr. Igor? The proof is right in front of your face if you just care to see it.

    you said that this change happened in the span of less than a month, which was the claim of yours that i questioned. now, that was a nice read, full of toughness and vigor, but you still didnt prove what i asked you to.
    do you have two eyes in your head, i might ask? lol

    you know what, i'll do it for you. prior to his 2011 run, the last time djokovic couldnt finish a 3 setter was in May of 2010. before that it was in the famous 5 setter against A-rod in january 2009.

    so that's a little more than a month's time between the last time he couldnt finish a match to his crazy 2011 run. by a little, i mean about 8 months, which is in line to what tennislovalova stated.

    You also have no factual background for your statement, both of you are just applying the Goebbels' recipe "if you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth".

    Whilst starting a reply such as yours in a very condescending manner, would you like to answer my question from before?

    How does one play long back to back matches then? You're saying that Novak has had some help. So if help is needed for him to do that, are you suggesting that playing long matches can only be done with 'assistance', or is this only the case for Novak?

    Why don't you "haters" " non-believers" , try the diet and practice 3-4 conditioning-agility every day, plus 4-5 hours tennis. Do it for a month and then come back and let us know you can last a 5 set-er and then another one in 2 days.

    Since you are so confident that all tennis players dope, why not do it and prove to everyone that what Rafa , Nole and Andy is inhumane, and they must be doping.

    Ah good, you're there. Right then, whilst kind enough to reply to the poster regarding your use of the term 'Cvac', I'd hope you'd be kind enough to answer my question which I'll ask for a third time:

    How does one play long back to back matches then? You're saying that Novak has had some help. So if help is needed for him to do that, are you suggesting that playing long matches can only be done with 'assistance', or is this only the case for Novak?

    I won't get bored of asking this, even in other threads if need be.

    Thread should be deleted. Nothing but whining 12 year old fanboys here. Apparently none of you watched tennis before 2008.

  45. No, Djokovic's sudden transformation after being at the top of the game already IS the proof. It's the same thing witnessed in baseball when Bonds and McGwire surged out of nowhere after playing pro ball for quite a long time. It's the same pattern. Federer or nadal did not fit this pattern at all (they were obviously amazing from a very very young age).

    No this is not PROOF, but it is a highly highly suspect occurrence. That is just how it is.

    No you are malicious sir. What you claim simply has nothing to do with truth and common sense. Federer did the same "transformation" in 2004. Sampras did the same "transformation" in 1993.
    Djokovic was also amazing from the very young age. Stop manipulating and twisting the facts and presenting false information and empty accusations.

    No he didn't. Neither sampras or federer have ever been the retirement junkie that djokovic was. Federer has never quit a match from heat, sore throats, or anything else. You're actually insulting federer by suggesting djokovic is somehow comparable.

    Sorry you are wrong. Djokovic had less retirements in 2010 than in 2011.
    And Djokovic is one of the great players of this generation, just like Federer. They are absolutely comparable. And heir breakthrough years 2004 and 2011 are quite similar.

    PEDs would likely be used to allow him to train harder and wouldnt have insta results like we saw. However a diet change from something someone was allergic to would probably show results within 2/3 days once the body has finished processing the allarginic substance.

    Ah so thanks for proving my point. Djokovic was, and is, a quitter. Federer is not. Federer has had 5 seasons with multiple majors. Djokovic one. Again, not even close to coming from the same vein. Thanks for playing.
