    Jonathan Overend's Blog on BBC:
    "...interesting feature of the Vajda interview is the acceptance that Djokovic pushed himself too hard after Wimbledon, perhaps fuelled by the feeling of invincibility or tempted by the scent of history. "He wasn't paying attention to his body" says Vajda, candidly.
    It was this admirable devotion to the practice court which Vajda believes contributed to Djokovic's shoulder problems which then persisted through until the end of the year and dented his season stats.

    He still won the U.S. Open and Toronto, so isn't it worth it?

    Not if it sends him into early retirement.

    Since when has age got anything to do with tennis? Djokovic is a retirement machine. He holds the all-time record for most retirements. He even did it in the Davis Cup semis this year!

    that literally has nothing to do with anything.

    And most *******s are fine with Rafa continuing to play.. since he's going to lose majors to Djokovic all the time anyway.

    :rolleyes:

    I wonder if *******s are ok with Federer continuing to play, since he is likely to take Djokovic out before the final.

    Since like uh....forever?:-?
    Doesn't matter if Djokovic retired. What matters is that he knows how to win. Just like your beloved Rafa retired countless times.
    Didn't he retire when getting crunched by Murray at AO '10 and decided to ruin Murray's victory by retiring when 0-3 down in the third set when he easily could've just stuck around for another 3 games, accepted the bagel and then taken a plane back to Spain? :lol:

    Doesn't matter. What matters is that Nadal has retired many times. Against Monaco, Davydenko and Murray. Both Nadal and Djokovic have their flaws in that regard but Nadal abuses the rules more than most. Illegal coaching and ridiculous use of MTOs when he's in trouble.

  25. Quite the character it would appear, this Clarky21.

    Novegg Cpossumvac, possible new name for the growing legend?

    I jest.

    Kishnabe, since I am not a mind-reader I don't know, maybe you would like to tell me. Are you brave enough to say how many times Nadal has faked injury, and how many times Djokovic has faked injury?

    haha..I'll give a damn try..
    I was watching your profile and came to know about your yotube channel which had some amazing fed videos.I am always been a rafa fan but I was amazed to see how good fed was back in 2006-07(I didn't follow tennis then,only heard bit or pieces on news)..It was like watching a "God wielding a magic stick in his hands"..AMAZING..I don't understand how can some one dislike it..:)

    Hilarious to know that I evoke such a strong response from some of you on here. It's entertaining to say the least. :lol:

    And Tushy,my nicknames for Djokovic are no worse than some of the people on here calling Nadal "******","Baldal",or "Piggy". Maybe you should also Tweet those fantastic,witty nicknames to Nadal's Twitter as well.


    Oh,and don't forget "Rafail" and "Dopedal" as well.

  33. Cheers. I'll be uploading some soon that involve Nadal, but unfortunately for you it will be a 3 part series about Nole's victory in the US Open 2011 Final. But still, part 2 is really pro Nadal. If he starts churning out the victories again next year no doubt i'll be making vids of him, as I like to make vids mainly on my fave player and whoever else is making big waves.

    Highest genius.

    If only Federer hadn't taken out Djoker at FO, Nadal trads wouldn't be throwing around the glimmer of hope that keeps them alive :)

    Those of you who can't accomplish anything in the world of sports come on message boards and make idiotic statements about those who do. Talk about bottom of the barrel.

    Djokovic, and most of the top players, are extremely competitive and all push themselves beyond what their bodies allow. This extraordinary drive is the reason they are on top of the world and also the reason they slip from that position every so often only to come back stronger. I believe any of the top 4 players could finish #1 next year.

    I don't expect those who haven't accomplished anything at the professional level in sports to understand the dynamics involved. The first post you see after a sub par performance of a top tennis player is "He's done". What a joke.

    Listen, your posts are just as bad(if not worse), so don't ask them to stop when you are doing the flaming yourself. You are being hypocritical.
