You can throw Murray into that debate as well - both of them have the smash of a player ranked in the 100s.

These last few months maybe - it's something that Mr Lendl had him focus on, but I've seen plenty of overhead fail from Murray. His own brother says he has the worst smash in the top 100! Novak is just as bad right enough - the OP is spot on with that.

Match point - smash right at the net, and Djokovic still hits it wide
He hasn't really improved much since then! lol

RCizzle65 10-07-2012 05:38 AM

yeah it still puzzles me how someone like Djokovic still misses smashes every now and then

Agreed, Federer and Nadal have two of the best smashes tennis has ever seen...

Lol no. Federer's is decent compared to the best, but Nadal isn't as good as a guy like Edberg, Tsonga or Sampras.

I have a few times. Very rare though.

He has THE worst smash of any number 1 player of the modern era.

He looks shakey everytime he hits one.

He's not even that surprised he missed.

Clarky21 10-07-2012 06:19 AM

Hopefully the rest of his game follows suit.

Don't think that is going to happen so quickly Clarky! Don't think **** is done quite yet. Chumps like Berdych and Tsonga are not likely to beat him that is for sure. :)

Tsonga ain't a chump. Djokovic just played superb today.

If Tsonga improves his footwork and his BH, he can seriously do damage him.

On Berdych....:lol: ok, he truly isn't cut out to trouble Djokovic.

He can't do it better, he wear contact lenses, can't see the ball at certain angles, that's the reason, not bad motion or technic.
