    I see some deep runs from Djoker but I just dont see him winning any slams. He hasnt reached the highest level he can achieve since early 08. I base alot of Djoker based on his past at the slams. Hes underachieved quite a bit IMO. He doesnt seem like he has the ability mentally. He has alot of talent. He has the potential but whether or not can mentally sustain is a big question.

    I think he will have a more consistent break out year in '10.

    AO-semi finals, maybe runner up
    RG-runner up
    W-runner up.....to Federer
    US-champion

    Worst predictions ever.

    Anyway here are mine:

    Australian Open- finals
    French Open- semis
    Wimbledon- 4th round
    U.S Open- semis or quarters

    He could win a slam, would have to be one Australia or the U.S, but not sure how likely it is.

    I would not be surprised to see him in a Wimbledon final. Remember, Nadal knocked him out in 07, & a hot veteran Safin in 08 (who reached semi-s), & in 09 another hot veteran in Haas edged him in the quarters. So I believe Wimbledon will be his second best slam result, with best chance at the AO.

    How did he fail again?

    You are hyping Djokovic as a future threat at Wimbledon, which is even more ludicrous than what Tsongafan is saying.

    AO - SF/F/Win
    FO - F/W
    W - QF/SF
    USO - SF/F/W

    AO is the Slam with the most upsets, filled with fresh and hot players. I believe that with his pfysical conditioning he'll be able to at least reach a semi. Then it all depends on the draw.

    FO - I think it's time for him to reach the final. Federer vs Djokovic semifinal would be pretty awesome. Too bad it didn't happen this year.

    Wimby - QF seems ok for a player of his calibre (on grass). He might implement some new tactics in his game that help him on this surface... And some new shoes would be welcome, of course.

    USO - Always there in the final mix. He has to win it some day, otherwise he'd be labeled a huge underachiever, and rightfully so.

    Australian- Djokovic's fitness has improved tremendously over the fall, I think he can make a deep run. But not deep enough to win, will be outdone by either Fed or Murray. Result: Semis

    French- By far his best surface this season, the cool spring weather along with his new fitness wont hurt either. The slower surface seemed to do him good this year. Given Nadal's shaky form as of late Djokovic can definitely win this titile. Result: Champion

    Wimbledon- Grass has never been his strong suit...that said I think that Djokovic will prolly have a repeat of this year maybe with the right draw one better, thats doubtful. Result: Quarters

    US Open- The only man to beat Djokovic at the US Open the last 3 years has been Federer. I don't see that changing even at the age of 29, I can see Djokovic beating Federer at any other tournament, but after this year and THE SHOT I dont think Novak has it in him not here this year. Result: Final/Semis (draw pending)

    Excuse me for veering off-topic, but is the common vernacular of "FAIL" related to tennis or is this common of another country or culture other than American? Just curious.:???:

    The problem is he can suffer some random and surprising losses at slams to the likes of Kohlschreiber, Haas, and Safin etc.

    I'll think he'll go deep at the Australian Open though, making the final.
    He won't get past Del Potro at Roland Garros though and he'll suck at Wimbledon. US Open I say semifinals.

    He has to be a favorite to win at least one slam next year. He's in good form, his tired performance at the WTF notwithstanding. Nadal just looks terrible, and can't possibly be a force at the AO.

    It will be the most interesting season in years. I'm rooting for Davydenko.

    Thanks, I just notice it said on a lot of threads as an interjection versus the typical verb form. Thought maybe it was European tennis slang.

    I'll be surprised if he wins any of them. But I do see him getting into the finals. :)

    Just curious, why do you predict Murray to win a slam but for Djokovic to exit in the 4th round of 3 of the 4 slams?

    My prediction:

    FO - QF. Loses to some up and comer.
    W - 4th round
    USO - SF or F. Hope he wins it though.

    I'm telling you all; he's gonna impress at Wimbledon; see who he lost to the last three years. You may dismiss Safin & Haas, but they were hot & were/are feisty veterans. And losing to Nadal is not too bad either.

    Well I'm no Djokovic fan so that may explain part of it. Not saying I'm going to be right or anything. I'm just not as high on Djokovic as some others on here are. For some reason I see him having a down year next year, in the slams at least.

    And I think Murray has a better shot at Wimbledon than Djokovic does.

    Interesting to note, on the ESPN telecast of the YEC on Sunday, Cahill and Drysdale were asked if Nadal and Fed didn't finish #1 next year, who would. Cahill said Murray, and Drysdale said JMDP. Neither one said Djokovic.

    Djokovic is quickly becoming another continously understimated player IMO. People keep talking like he is on the way down, are hyping others like Murray and Del Potro to the sky while discounting Djokovic, yet at the end of the year it is Djokovic still comfortably ranked #3 over both. Some of his skeptics even say things like Djokovic has had a horrible year, but then what does that say for Murray and Del Potro who apparently have been unable to catch Djokovic in the rankings inspite of his "horrible" year. I am not saying either player cant surpass him, but it seems people are too anxious and willing to write off Djokovic. The man is a serious talent, and he is mentally tough too inspite of his higher WD rate.

    Well, he doesn't have to be a favourite to win one slam, but it is really the sort of thing that if somebody has a 16% chance to win at each of the slams, the chance that they won't win a slam is only 50% (assuming independent probabilities, which isn't an entirely unreasonable approximation to reality). I wouldn't favour him for any particular slam, but I certainly wouldn't be surprised if he wins one. He has a proven track record of being a consistent semifinalist when his game is on.

    I hope Davydenko has a good breadwinning year, since that seems to be what he finds important.

    I'm the only person on here who's opinion is biased? :rolleyes:

    Look, biased or not, its my opinion. At least I'm not like these other clowns on here who claim to be the be all end all of tennis knowledge, but are just as biased as the rest of us. Look, the OP gave a question. Biased or not, I answered it. I didn't troll the thread, call any player names, etc. I just gave an opinion. You don't have to agree w/ it, I don't expect you to.

    Well, compare the 2 biases:

    1) you say Djokovic is not getting past 4th round in 2010

    2) another poster made a thread saying that Fed will not win a slam in 2010

    (and this other dude already has over 20 Fedhounds on his back lol)

    As much as I hate to get involved in this, or ever come to JBF's defense, he did pick Djokovic to reach the FO semis if you look at his choices again. :)

    I had Djok in the SF of the French and 4th of everything else.

    Look I don't want this thread to turn into a critique of my opinion. I posted, didn't say anything inflammatory or trolling....it's just my opinion. You don't have to agree with it.

    Look there's a lot of young guys rising I think could trouble Djokovic. Cilic has been owned by Novak traditionally, but he's a big match player and could take him out if they met in a slam. Querrey, Monfils...like I said, I don't want this to turn into a critique of my choices.

    But Novak had a generous draw to get to the Wimby QF this yr before he was taken down by Haas. He's not as strong at returning on grass as he is on the other surfaces. That's my reasoning for an earlier loss there. And IMO there are some guys coming up on HC who could take him out earlier.

    Like I said, I'm not the biggest fan of the guy or his game. So you can take my opinion with a grain of salt if you want to.

    Oh, yeah, you had him in SF of the French. :)

    Well, it's funny you say Djokovic can go out to Cilic, but forget what happened in 4R of US Open this year.

    OK, I don't wanna get into details. Agree to disagree, forget about it. (but still I'm pretty sure you would be trolled out of the forum if you said a similar thing about Federer.)

    How many slams does Fed have? And how many for Novak?

    How many years does Fed NOT make a slam SF? I mean, I don't get your analogy. To say that claiming 0 slams for Djokovic is the same as claiming 0 slams for Federer....I don't get it.

    Oh well agree to disagree I guess. :-?

    I didn't compare how many slams would each one win in 2010.

    I was saying that predicting DJokovic to go no further than 4R at AO and USO is the same as predicting that Federer will not reach a final in those 2 events, maybe even worse.

    Djokovic had a bad season in 2010 and still reached QF in AO and SF in USO.

    Unlikely to happen,the last time Novak had comparable results in slams was back in 2006 which is almost 4 years ago.

    Especially his results at USO for the last 3 years were F/SF/SF,going down each time to the defending champion Fed so I find it higly unlikely he'll go down in 4th round.
