    Maybe he's planning on retiring yet again. Gotta get that excuse ready.

    Clay courts built on wood. Impossible to slide. High injury risk. Another blue clay type fiasco in the making. Those improvised clay courts are abominable. Hope he doesn't take any chance, so not worth it.

    Quit whining, learn to adapt to the court and be aggressive. Quit sliding everywhere and playing Peter Pusher. Learn how to hit a first serve and end a point in under ten shots. Be grateful India isn't hosting and you're not playing on cow dung.

    I just hope Novak gets through without injury, there are other reasons he'll be at discomfort there but I won't go into them on a tennis forum.

    He was being sarcastic and parodying Fed fans.

    LOL no, from Obradovic's statement to the press but it is a sort of a political thing and I hate mixing politics with tennis.

    lol, Novak complaining that he can't slide on the court cuz his feet will be half a meter under ground. Hey, if you don't want to play, don't freaking play. Nobody wants to turn an ankle at the start of the season, but maybe if he learned how to adapt a bit more, he wouldn't have a problem. I remember everyone else in the top 5 cried and *****ed about the blue clay last year and just one player came out on top cuz he just dealt with it.

    If a court sucks and isn't built for sliding without digging in, THEN DON'T SLIDE! But then again, that's all Novak does to get to every ball. Maybe those organizers finally figured out how to neutralize the great Nole of Slidersville.

    I think sliding less will help Djokovic in his pursuit to win Roland Garros. People have taken advantage of Djokovic's inconvenient and frequent slips on clay. Federer won a ton of points in that RG 2011 match because Djokovic kept losing his footing. Nadal also jerked Djokovic left and right last year at the french and got a ton of points from Djokovic's failure to retreat to the center of the court after slipping.

    I watched about 3 games of the match video posted above. Nole seemed annoyed that he couldn't slide to get to some balls that had pace and were wide to make him run, but he seemed to do fine in figuring out how to win a point in less shots. Maybe his matches will get more entertaining to watch instead of the rally shows he usually puts on.
