Did you see any player clapping for opponent's points more than Djokovic
 
Such a class act.

Nole sexy masterclass. love

That's one department I like about Novak.

But then again, if there's too many GODLY shots... I think he'd be destroying racquets.... esp. if he gets ****ed...

So it's not all -masterclass-

Relinquis 01-28-2013 05:26 PM

i think it's a little patronising sometimes...

James Blake's "Too Good." comes to mind. Then again, he did play primed-out Federer a bunch of times.

was impressed at Novak giving Berdych a first serve when a fan yelled out during his service motion. That's pretty rare(umpires do not give 1st serves or replay situations due to crowd noise)

Sometimes he does applaud his opponents winners with the intention of being d!ck, but most of the time it is well-intentioned.

I remember he was playing Federer at the USO a few years ago, Federer hit a forehand that caught a bit of his frame and pushed Djokovic way off court; this allowed Federer crush an easy winner into the open court. Djokovic looked at Federer and used the edge of his racquet to sarcastically clap for Federer's framed forehand.

A true, humble Slavic hero. An inspiration.

Such a humble guy this Lance. Does he also walk on water, turn water into wine, and make the blind see?

Do you ever say anything nice about the world #5?

He's just demonstrative by nature. He reacts to pretty much every shot by either player. He chews the scenery from start to finish. It is getting old.

I think the words "Djokovic" and "class" do not belong in the same sentence.

Truth. All of this. I do not get how more people don't see through this guy.

I like the clapping, even though the reason is probably less to demonstrate appreciation for his opponent's awesomeness than to make himself feel less bad for losing the point. "Too good, I couldn't do a damn thing about it." It's a common psychological trick to avoid getting too down on yourself - you can't control certain environmental factors (here counting the opponent as an environmental factor, even though he's really not), so chalk it up to luck/nature/God and move on.

Anyway, I like it because I'm kind of sick of all these players, male and female, that just beat themselves up all the time even when they're winning. So negative. Djoker is a bit of fresh air in that regard, even if it is a psychological trick.

Sad to see most ppl here cannot appreciate Nole and actually call him out for the good traits he exhibits -- like his humor and appreciating opponents.

However, I had the feeling this time that he should no longer do this with top players. He should only do it with unseeded/upcoming ones. But it's his call - who am i to say.

In many respects Nole is "classier" than Fed and Nadal, except that one can keep changing the definition of class to one's own convenience.

Then who do ?

Fed with his whiny sore loser behavior.
Or Rafa with his hip thrusts and huge fist pumps -- which are fine while anything Nole does is not. Or maybe Murray with all the swearing on each point.

That's because we obviously don't know as much about class as you do Clarky.

Or maybe it's just that you don't have any taste.

Jankovic used to do that too!
