    He just suffered a string of losses. Tell me, who has also suffered such a slump? Federer, even Nadal is clearly the much better candidate. Djokovic is unworthy.

    Djokovic is by and far the best in the world. Why would Nadal or Federer deserve #1 when neither has come close to matching Djokovic's achievements this year?
    Djokovic 6-0 vs Nadal.
    Djokovic 4-1 vs Federer.
    3 Grand Slams, 5 Masters titles. Nuff said.

    Rankings are based on a year's results. So a string of losses in 1 month's time won't have much effect, especially since they occurred at the end of the season where there are less points for grab.

    Nadal and Federer had string of losses when they were number 1's in the world.

    2007 Federer: IW,Miami to Canas, MC lost to Nadal, Rome to some Italian guy....

    I can see that it is an intentional troll thread....since only a clown would say Djokovic isn't worthy of the number one postion for the three slams he has won.

    Your thread title should have been Wozniacki not worthy....of World #1!

    I don't even see why you would even think Nadal would be a better candidate to be #1 than Djokovic.

    Nadal hasn't even won a title since Roland Garros. His results since then were:

    QF - Queen's Club; F - Wimbledon; 2nd Round - Canada; QF - Cincy; F - US Open; F - Tokyo; 3rd Round - Shanghai; RR - WTF + 4 wins in Davis Cup This is a 26-9 record

    Djokovic's results since RG have been this:

    W - Wimbledon; W - Canada; F - Cincy; W - US Open; SF - Basel; QF - Paris; RR - WTF + 1 loss in Davis Cup

    This is a 29-4 record

    Based on this, your argument that Nadal would be a better #1 candidate is lame since Djokovic was even better than Nadal during the string of losses Djokovic suffered

    Seriously agree man.

    Djokovic is #1 based on the entire year, not because of the last 3 months of the season.

    Federer lost to Volandri in Rome during that year.

    I agree completely. Whether one is a fan of Djokovic's or not, one thing is clear---he had the best year by far out of anybody and deserves the top spot for this year. Whether he can continue with the pressures of being number one moving forward remains to be seen.

    Based on his play this entire year he deserved #1, but his lack of play at the end did cost him the best season ever.

    Even as a Fed fan, I strongly disagree. There are fans believe Wozniacki is a worthy #1, but you're saying a 3 slam winners isn't worthy? That's crazy !

    Crikey, some folk have short memories don't they? Up until the FO, Djokovic had won 7 titles (the AO, IW, Miami, Madrid, Rome, Dubai and Belgrade)). After losing in the FO he went on to win 3 more (Wimbledon, Montreal and the USO).
    He's been in 11 finals this year (including 3 Slams and 6 Masters) and won 10 of them! What other player on the tour has come near to matching that in 2011???

    The rankings take into account the last 52 weeks. Good luck in telling us all who has had better results than Djokovic in the last 52 weeks.

    It's seriously been way too long since we have turned a troll thread into a thread about trains. But I'm not in the mood for trains. Given that we are in December, let's get into the winter spirit a little early and make the thread about:

    Djokovic won't dominate like Federer. That is obvious. He couldn't even win the WTF like Fed did in his 3 slam years(2004, 2006 and 2007). I don't even think Djokovic will win multiple slams in 2012(just 1 slam, imo). Federer is the only player to win multiple slams after a year where he won 3 slams. Shows how hard it is to do it. All the others failed: Connors(0 slams), Wilander(0 slams) and Nadal(1 slam).

    Federer was the only player to crown his years where he won the 3 slams with the YEC. Connors, Wilander and Nadal didn't win the YEC in those years, like Djokovic.

    Djokovic looks more likely to follow Connors, Wilander or Nadal in 2012 than Federer.

    That's because he's merely drunk while the OP was obviously high when he made this thread.

    Well, Fed's himself said that Noel's had a remarkable year, and Rafa, he was 0-6, so he's got nothing more to add. Don't know how he's done it, but the results are indisputable. Now, he did crawl on all four to the end of the year, so we have to see how he turns out next year. :neutral:

    Dude,wake up do the math(if if's not too hard). Djoko has easily been the best for 2011 and I am not even a Djoko fan.

    He's just trolling for answers. He deserves to be number 1, and worked his ass off this year.

    No of course not. #1 should be one of the guys whose ass he was kicking all year (eg- Nadal, Federer, Murray, anyone). Or it should go to Nishikori who gave him a bagel set. Nishikori the real #1 of 2011.

    Well let's do the math. Djokovic beat GOAT Fed. Nishikori beat Djokovic, hence Nishikori is GOAT, but wait, Fed beat Nishikori, making Fed GOAT.

    At the end of the day, Djokovic is still #1 and deservedly so.

    My head hurts now.

    KNish lost to Sweeting in a final, so Sweeting is #1, no?

    Now your head really hurts! Take two Advil and resist TT threads until the morning.

    This is a pretty stupid post... Djokovic worked his butt off and did really well in 2011. And it's currently appearing as if he's paying the price for it.

    Nope. He will be back next year with yet another kind of "miracle" that fixes every weakness in your game in less than a month's time. He will then go on to outlast everyone on tour for an entire year despite his breathing problems and stamina issues with absolutely no explanation for it except for gaining confidence from a DC win he did not even clinch,and a supposed gluten-free diet that was found out by a quack called Dr.Igor and his QXCI biofeedback system. :lol:

    Cvac should be studied by scientists for having such a miraculous turn around in his health in such a short amount of time. It has got to be some kind of record. Lol.

    Granted, he would be an interesting case for science, but he's not the only one. At the drop of a hat, I can also think of another player who won some 5-10 mph on his first serve from one day to the next just by, ahem, changing grips, and who then lost the additional speed just as promptly. One must presume he just reverted back to his old grip because the new one was too succesfull... ;)

    Nadal never added that much mph to his serve. That's bs. His average serve speed at last years USO wasn't that much different from his average serve speed at Wimby this year. He also has served bigger before that as well but not consistently. Cvac otoh,came out of absolute nowhere to physically dominate everyone on the tour(in less than a month's time)after spending his entire career as a weezing weakling. Sorry,but that sort of increase in stamina and and endurance in a player that has been a wimp for so many years does not compute.

    You still have no idea or explanation for Nadal's big serving at USO 2010. :lol: Unusual for him. He never served like that prior or since.

    It's WHEEZING, not weezing. Unless you meant weeping.

    Anyway, its not an increase in stamina and endurance. It's a breathing problem caused by a gluten allergy which is quite common. When you can't breathe, guess what happens ? Ever been unable to breathe ? Once the problem was detected he was able to breathe, and thus practice and run much much better.

    What is actually shocking is that it was not detected earlier.

    Has Nadal ever been asked in an interview ever since why he abandoned that USO '10 serve ? I find it strange that no one asked him and got an official response.
