    Berretini to expose Nole false dawn.

    Historically, Big serve + Big FH players are Djokovic's favorite players to play.... Berretini is also 3-0 against him. Please TW... Everytime Djokovic plays someone it's "XX will Dethrone Djokovic this round and show his fallacy". The guy has won 3 GS this year, it's already a done deal.

    Djokovic's Conditioning at Tokyo Olympics

    They announced that they may change it to a later time. Also Djokovic doesn’t struggle with heat, it’s windy conditions. He won in Australia after playing for 6 hours 90 degrees with medium humidity back in 2012. I’ve noticed the serves in Tokyo are coming off a bit slow so Djokovic is getting...

    Djokovic's Conditioning at Tokyo Olympics

    With his natural low body fat, any muscle he adds will probably boost his muscular endurance as well. Your arms and legs do get tired of pushing and swinging with less muscle. I highly doubt he overdoes it though.

    Djokovic's Conditioning at Tokyo Olympics

    It seems like he is not fazed by the heat and humidy that much. Looks leaner and muscular as he's ever been (2012). He is completely steam rolling 2nd sets and looks to be much fitter than his younger competition (see Medvedev). His preparation is amazing. No wonder he was posting so much...

    Who has the second greatest 2HB?

    1. Djokovic 2. Agassi 3. Murray 4. Nalbandian 5. Safin Tennis was more difficult back then?? Today's game relies on the backhand more than ever, with constant baseline rallies/grinding. The quality of backhands in the modern age is significantly better than back then. Also having a great...

    Could any combination of the Big Three be Doubles #1 Players?

    Say they stopped their singles careers and began soley focusing on doubles, would any combination of them be enough to be Doubles #1 for 100 weeks (in an era without Bryan Brothers)? Would have to be right? They all have skillsets that would be insanely beneficial in doubles.

    Novak is also peaking off court, it's INSANE!!!

    Still not as popular as Federer but his recent runs and mentality have inspired/enthused a lot of people. It seems to be the younger generation that has a strong bias for him. Not to mention Djokovic is built for these types of environments, significantly more so than Fed and Nadal

    Has Djokovic shattered the "Djokovic isn't loved" myth?

    Djokovic is actually the biggest athlete at the Olympics this year, and with him on the cusp of breaking multiple records, it’s no wonder he’s getting a lot of craze. The Olympics twitter account is already meming his split photo with the belgian gymnasts. It also helps he is extroverted

    Peak Safin vs. Peak Djokovic: who prevails?

    Thread is a joke…. 2005 AO Safin, everyone’s peak god tennis player only won the tourney because Fed choked match points and went full tilt against him. He is not the greatest offensive player ever lol. 2016 AO or 2016 Doha Djokovic would obliterate 2005 AO Safin into the ground , if we’re...

    Djokovic to go sleeveless in Tokyo

    Man Djokovic looks lean and mean sleeveless Obviously not as buff as Rafa but it looks like he packed on some muscle this season

    If Djokovic was truly the greatest returner ever, shouldn't it stand to reason that they should increase surface speed to truly challenge his return?

    The old heads in this forum are running out of arguments now that Djokovic is the numerical/record goat

    Federer is 10-21 versus Djokodal in grand slams

    Federer is an amazing player, one of the greatest of all time, and by far the most aesthetic. However, he doesn’t play winning tennis the way Djokovic and Nadal do.

    If Djokovic was truly the greatest returner ever, shouldn't it stand to reason that they should increase surface speed to truly challenge his return?

    As said earlier, serving stats now back the modern era: - Racket technology allows for players to precisely place their serves, more than ever - Players put ridiculous amount of spin on serves - The average serve now is much faster than it was in the 80s -90s - The average top 100 player is...

    Djokovic: I feel I'm the most complete that I've been as a player right now in my entire career.

    Yeah, yeah you can argue all that but you still didn't address what he said. Thanks for the derogatory name calling as well :)

    Djokovic: I feel I'm the most complete that I've been as a player right now in my entire career.

    The saltiness is real.. 2007-2008 better than 2021 djokovic?? come on now. His game hadn't even developed and he had no clutch gene whatsoever. These are the arguments this forum brings now? We have 36 year old ronaldo, 34 year old messi, 36 year old lebron, 43 year old tom brady still playing...

    Weeks at #1 is the most overrated metric!

    Oh yes!! Weeks at #1 is overrated Grand Slams are also overrated Masters titles are also overrated In fact whatever Djokovic has a record in is overrated!

    CYGS is not that special compared to NCYGS...

    Only a genius can choke 40-15 against the GOAT and dethrone his resume in a matter of seconds multiple times. Media doesn't like Djokovic but not much you can argue when he is on the brink of every record

    Who's getting turned into the next tennis logo?

    Djokovic has the best action shots on tour... Maybe not on video, but frame by frame his extension is so easy to make as a logo

    Perpetual evolution of Djokovic

    Improved forehand?? Djokovic had the biggest forehand on tour in 2011.... He outhit everyone on that wing that year. Everything else is true though, except maybe consistency. He isn't the baseline machine he was in 2015 or 2011, but has significantly more assets in his arsenal that allow him...

    For Djokovic which is actually his most important shot?

    The only time I've seen Djokovic's forehand break down was USO 2013 F. That year, Nadal's forehand was pummeling the entire tour and Djokovic simply could not handle it on the forehand side. 95% of the time he is an error-free machine. The forehand has more variables as a swing than the...

    For Djokovic which is actually his most important shot?

    Return of serve... Federer and Nadal have lost numerous contests to him because of this. Nadal's serve turns into an extreme liability against Djokovic and Federer's what would be aces are returned back to the baseline when he plays Djokovic. And it seems like next gen can't hold their service...

    If there was just one as talented as any of the Big 3

    No one is reaching even 10 slams without a consistent rival to motivate them.

    How many Wimbledon titles will Djokovic finish with?

    8 Wimbledons... All he needs is a favorable draw. The next-gen cannot play grass to save their life, regardless if they are in their prime or not. His serve and return on today's grass makes him extraordinarily hard to beat.

    Rafa was close to win a slam (W 2007) by going through the toughest path (on paper!) - Has anyone done that till now?

    I think Stan's titles at 2014 AO and 2015 FO were quite difficult. According to Ultimate Tennis Statistics, he holds #2,#3, and #4 for hardest grand slams won. I believe Djokovic's 2011 USO is also up there as...

    Why does Novak look like he's playing at 50%

    Djokovic eats Forehand + Serve combo players like nothing.... These players tend to be more inconsistent so he plays it chill ball by ball. As someone said, RG 21 was one of the biggest he has hit in a while.. He is literally adapting to each player he plays, its quite insane

    Djokovic In Chase For 2021 Super Slam - Official Watch Thread

    Winning the YEC could be just as hard as winning a grand slam to be honest.. Playing the best players in the world everyday in a 3 set format (have to be focused in every game). It just so happens that players don't have the willpower or energy by the end of the year so it is not as prioritized.

    Djokovic Volleying Clinic at Wimbledon 2021

    Very true with the approach shots statement, however you can't blame Djokovic for exploiting Berretini's weakness. Also, I highly doubt the Djokovic of 2011 would be so successful at the net as he is today.
