    Novak Djokovic bounces the ball on the ground so many times before serving because he dreams of being a well known and well liked player. He does so many impressions of other players, using their trademark habits and hope one day he'll be famous enough for other players to make fun of him. He just wants a "thing" like Nadal's many, many things, Federer's hair flicking, Roddick's tongue and Agassi's walk. This is a cry for attention and he's getting it now. Good job Novak, people are talking about you.

    You mean it's got nothing to do with him being #4 in the world, probably soon to be #3. Nothing to do with him reaching two consecutive grand slam semis. Nothing to do with his talent and potential?

    The guy is actually very funny and he is quite light hearted and good natured. His impersonations are regarded as tributes to his fellow players, not denigrations of them. I can hardly wait to see someone impersonate his service bouncing of balls etc, that should be funny!!

    Yea, you see right through people. Because the OP was trying to say that Djok is famous because he bounces the ball a lot. You are really really smart.

    Every all time great tennis player has certain habits that everyone remembers about them. Djok has repeatedly said that his goal is to reach #1. Even if he doesn't, he thinks that he will, which is a huge part of the mentality of a tennis pro. So, by noticing how Djok can imitate every great tennis player, the OP can see how it's important to him (Because he can do them so damn well). He wants to be remembered in the same way as the other greats. He wants his own habit that stands out.

    Radek Stephanek has already imitated Djokovic when playing against him.

    Djokovic's ball bouncing is long enough... if someone imitates him and exaggerates the act, I'd hate to have to sit through it.
