    Lately, it seems though almost all Federer fans have a strong dislike towards Djokovic. No discussions are necessary, just vote if you like, dislike, hate, or do not really care about Novak Djokovic. Please only vote in the poll if Federer is your FAVORITE player.

    I don't see the point of this thread. I'm a Fed fan but I'm also a fan of Nadal, Murray, Djokovic & Del Potro. I don't see any conflict in being a fan of both Roger & Novak.

    I like his game. His personality is ok. Dis like it when he gets too intense sometimes.

    I'll be honest, I didn't particularly care for him at first. I'm pretty neutral on him now, though.

    Djoko is actually funny when he and his family not talking trash. He actually was more funny when he was playing well, but relatively, he has not been playing as well as last year or 2 years ago. Is it little burning out?

    My second favourite of the top 4. I like his personality and his game when it's attacking and working. I only dislike his parents. Hate I feel towards noone, especially not towards people I don't know.

    Not true. I like him a lot, love his impressions, hugging oppo, exchanging shirts, and many other small gestures.

    otoh, i think he needs to iron out his fitness or concentration issues, whatever it is that is causing lapses in performance. of that we will certainly be critical.

    As far as family is concerned, doesnt matter to me, they are parents after all...

    I'm a fan of both, I root for both. More a fan of Federer though, but those 2 are my favorite players. :)

    I really don't understand why people get so upset about Djokovic by the way.. he seems like a really nice guy.

    I like Djoko as a player. I dont like his personality so much but I would much rather he be around than not.

    He makes the game more interesting and the fact that he is a threat on all surfaces to all players I like too

    I don't like him much and most times I end up rooting against him.

    I dislike Djokoivc. Too much time taking, fake injuries, and retireing matches for me. I dislike the family too.

    He's trying to single out the Fed fans in one stroke. Now he'll flame us to death :):twisted::)

    Lol nah, I'm no troll. Atleast I hope I'm not. Based on the poll, it seems that some of the more outspoken Fed fans just make it seem that way.

    I used to like him, but lately both him and his parents have gotten a bad case of "foot in mouth" disease.

    I like his game; I don't like that he retires so frequently. But the question was, "do you like him," and listening to the guy talk with the commentators the other day, and other times, he seems like a really nice guy. So no reason not to like ihm.

    I have players I like watching and others I don't. Some players come across as more interesting to me others don't. Djokovic is one of the more interesting ones. As a Fed fan, Novak is a competitor like everyone else on the tour, one of the better ones.

    Liking Djokovic or not has nothing to do with me being a Federer fan

    but yes I like him

    There was a period last year when his head got too big and his family made things worse for him but since then he has come down to earth and decided to become his own person.

    Hmmm I would have to say he does have some pretty smooth strokes, and I really think he is a great guy, so he would be my favorite after Roger.

    I won't like him until he grows a pair. The guy just need to man up. Is it really so hard, if you're a paid professional on the mens tour, to finish a match?

    The retiring, the suspect injury timeouts, the ball bouncing, the chest thumping and gesturing, the loudmouthed parents --none of it's good.

    Mostly it's the retiring, though. And it's ALWAYS when he's behind.

    Why isn't this poll public? ...and how do you know only Fed fans are going to vote on this poll?

    I dont know that only Fed fans will vote, but its not that big of a deal. What do you mean, the poll is not public?
    EDIT: I get what you mean by public now, but how do I change it now?

    You can't now. And it beats the whole purpose of your thread. If N_F or GJo11 came in here and voted for "I like him" (as a fed fan, which they aren't), no one would know. If the thread is about Djokovic's popularity in general on these forums, then you've kept away some folks with the title of the thread. So what's the point?

    No worries. Just don't believe any of the numbers. The posts are still useful. :)

    I like his game and I think he is starting to really mature too. I like his warm handshakes at the net and his "sunny" personality as well.

    I don't dislike Djokovic. I think he has a great style to him and he's good for the game.
