Top man mate! Haha. I usually the optimistic one but must admit was very worried earlyier today and last night :p

We Djokovic fans always stick together though, through great/special and also heartbreaking moments. Always proud of Nole no matter what.
Yeah, it's the low moments that make the highs even better. If Novak were to win Wimbledon again this year, I can't explain how delighted I'd be! :)

Same here. The French final loss hurt so much. Took me a few days or even a week to get over it. Him winning Wimbledon or even playing a great tournament will help soften the blow. Plus Nole has great positive attitude, love how he always bounces back from disappointments.

Then again this year has been so special for us so far. 5 titles, with 1 major, another major runner up final and he made 7 consecutive finals in ATP tournaments this year. Huge rankings points lead. In to last 8 of Wimbledon pending. Hey that some year lol

Just not a perfect one as he lost the French but cannot win them all, not even Djoko the superman haha. Been his best year of results so far since 2011 though.

And to think, whatever happens at Wimbledon there's still a chance for another multi-slam season at the USO, he could finish the year with a record 6 Masters titles, a 5th WTF and a 4th YE#1. He'd also overtake McEnroe in 5th place for players with most weeks at number 1 if he stays on top for the rest of the year. King Novak has so many targets in his sights! :)

Yep it's not just about the majors. He racking up a lot of other important achievements too. He adding to his amazing legacy every passing day. I would love another multi slam season though just to help his major haul and have another dominating year. Plus so the haters would stop saying 2011 was a one off and he will never have another multi slam year.

I think Djokovic will probably win in four but it all depends which version of Cilic shows up. If Cilic can somehow bring his USO type form he could give Djokovic a challenge. He did take Djokovic to five sets at Wimbledon last year. Some people are saying they don't see that USO type form yet from Cilic but we didn't really see that USO type form until the last three rounds of the USO where he thrashed Berdych, Federer and Nishikori soundly. Who say that coming? It could just appear at Wimbledon. I never thought Anderson would take Djokovic to five sets, so who knows. However, Cilic has a mental blip when it comes to Djokovic so it will probably be Djokovic in four.

Agree with those who are saying Cilic will have to be in top form to even make it a match. I think he might scrape out 1 set.

Djokovic - something like 63 75 26 62 - gets 1 more win before Stanimal opens a big can on him Friday.

He should have another multi GS season before this year though. Now it wont be prestigious at all. All his main rivals declined Rafa finished Roger grandfather Murray never been the same player after the back operation. Yet his gluten free diet works better than ever.

Don't be silly, a multi-slam season is always prestigious and the record books don't care about competition anyway.

Is Cilic having any physical issues at the moment? I seem to remember something like that. Because if he's perfectly fit, I just get this feeling he's gonna bring the goods for this match. I sense a volcano rumbling within him.

Let's hope he doesn't fold in 3 and make me end up with egg on my face :D

Cilic has not looked impressive at all this tournament. But Novak started slow against Anderson. I would love for Cilic to prove he's legit tomorrow, like how Stan has done. But I say Novak in 3 or 4. I expect him to really bring it after the scare this past match.

Voted Djokovic in 5. Cilic's big game will trouble Djokovic. Anderson gave Novak a bit of preparation for this match, but I expect another tough one for him.

Cilic would have to be in his USO mode to slay Djoker. That form has been spectacularly absent since then.

Nole in three.
Cilic suck now after shoulder surgery so Novak in 3 sets. cilic isn't a deserving US open champion, kei should have won, he is more popular and sells tennis better
 
Cilic is such an enigma. He's got the game to go toe to toe with the best and a Grand Slam title under his belt, yet he's also going the distance with guys like Ricardis Berankis.

I think after his last match Djokovic isn't going to be content to play ho hum tennis. He's going to need to grab this one by the ears.

Novak looking sharp. Is it just me or has his slice really improved over the last year and a half?

Cilic looks to be playing some good tennis. So is Novak. If Cilic does take set 2, we could have a great contest on our hands ...

his slice has improved quite a bit since hiring Becker ...
That would be the reason. Interesting how he has been improving everything necessary to win Wimbledon: the serve, the slice, and the volleys.

yeah, curiously I thought they were helping him at this year's RG as well and that he'd take it, but stan was beasting and he was a bit sub-par in the final ...
