    Miss the way he played in late 2007 early 2008. He doesn't seem to have that fire anymore. Saw him warm up for 15 minutes at Indian wells 2008 while Nadal was hitting for what seemed to be an hour and a half. He then beat Nadal 3 and 2 very quickly. He was smiling, relaxed, and very confident.

    In clay season, he has to defend Monte Carlo and Rome finals as well as Madrid SF. Its hard for him to add points to his ranking in the clay season he may lose even more confidence if he fails to do so. FO is a good chance because of the loss last year.

    he thought he would just replace federer as the number 1 without having to work constantly at it. oh well, we know who the real champion is.

    Does it matter? And Djokovic's nickname is spelt different from the guy you mentioned anyway.

    I miss him and his old game. His strokes have changed quite a lot, specially his forehand.

    Yeah, how dare he make a joke about a person with a name whose spelling is slightly different.

    And as long as we're nitpicking, "spelt" isn't a word

    Yes I do miss him, I don't know why his game goes up and down whenever it feels like, I guess it has to do if he feels like playing or not. He played his best when he was aggressive in 2008, and played a bit smarter, now it seems he just grinds the ball, and his second serve isn't one of the greatest right now like it used to be.

    Yeah, I don't really get my spelling tips from Urban Dictionary. You do realize Urban Dictionary isn't an actual dictionary, right?

    And the past tense of "spell" is "spelled".

    Dummy

    You might want to consider it, since your vocabulary appears to be falling short



    Spelt:

    A past tense and a past participle of spell


    Ha, you really are ignorant.

    You really don't believe "spelled" to be the proper past tense of "spell"? Wow, just wow.

    In any case, we're both retarded for arguing on an online forum, so cheers

    You are contradicting the source i posted. I never said "spelled" wasn't right, but you saying "spelt" is wrong makes you ignorant.

    Oh dear, the one calling someone retarded argued that "spelt" was not a word even though he was provided a link that proved otherwise. Wow, just wow.

    You know you're irrelevant when a thread dedicated to you boils down to a spelling contest.

    First of all, yes, I hope Djokovic sorts his serve out and gets back to winning ways.

    I hate to contribute to this whole nerd fest we've got going here, but aren't endings like "spelt" and "learnt" just a difference between British and American english?

    I think his racquet and low confidence pretty much changed his stokes and are likely to stay as they are currently, but still hoping for top serve to come back, current one is Safina like.

    He's still using the same mold he had with Wilson. In other words, he never switched racquets.

    Is this definately true? I know his racquet is different to the one they advertise in stores as being his racquet but I also think it's somewhat different to his Wilson one.For one the frame looks much thicker-I've even seen expert commemtators do a split screen demonstration during some tourny last year of his forehand swing with both racquets,they said the new frame was thicker(and you could clearly see that) and that he had lost some "bite" on his shots or whatever.He also made a pretty big deal about his "adjusting period" at the start of last year-I know he can sometimes be a bit of a dramatist but I don't think he would have felt comfortable saying all that if he knew himself he had made no change whatsoever.He also went into a bit of detail in a presser during IW 09 of how he had spent a lot of time the previous year with Head developing a racquet specific to him.I really don't think this is a paint job,does anybody else not notice the difference in thickness at least?

    And spelt and spelled are both perfectly correct Commander

    Spelt I think is British English and spelled is American English. That said, spelt looks like something a 2nd grader would write. I have not seen it spelled that way since I was in 2nd grade. But I am in the US.

    I only miss Nole if he doesn't do the million bounce serve, he plays well and mostly he promises to leave his mother at home. Most of the other mother's are fine, even Judy is tolerable. But that mother(Djokovic) is one annoying mother.

    Wasn't he just in Miami. I could see someone missing Sampras, or Agassi, or Borg, or Connors, or McEnroe, etc., but it's been like two weeks.

    What round was he taken out in again and wasn't it Djokovic that stated something along the lines of the only players worth watching are the top three? Good times.

    Same here. Good thing the serve isn't as big as factor on clay than it is on other surfaces.

    Actually spelled is American English and spelt is British English. I would have thought that would be obvious?

    So they're both right. Now folks, was it really worth arguing about? :)

    Re: Novak, I hope his game comes together and soon. I used to be a big fan and though that time has passed, I wish he'd play better than he has done this year.
