Anyone who has followed Djokovic closely over the years knew this result was on the cards. Whilst he wanted to win, everyone wants to win every match, it wasn't one like the RG SF or RG F where he would dig deep into his mental and physical reserves to win. He didn't dig deep today and that's fair enouogh. Well played Busta, wanted it more and played like that too. But I smell a beatdown for him the likes of which Djokovic has dished out to Nishikori over the the years when they next play. Great champions don't forget things like this.
Should happen against Zverev as he's the guy who took away Novak's chances for gold, no? Doubtful tbh, both guys have troubled Novak in the past.

I shall go back don't concern yourself.

Seriously though Djoko hits a very mean ball, perhaps debatably the very meanest.
However he can't act like this and take Goat status, and lead the sport. He and his legacy has suffered here, he's paying a price for his talent.

It's not good to see, least of all for him, - I mean, getting pasted by Street - IT'S EMBARRASSING FOR EVERYONE!
As for the racket tantrum - That cost him dear and he's yet to pay the full price.

Novak known he should have consolidated and decimated PCB - It was pathetic to watch.

This Olympic debacle is one he'd just like to forget. Sadly for him he's always going to called out by Barstools like me over
it. It's a longway back from here for him.

Stupid Pillock !

But he is the GOAT.

Didn't read the rest.

Fun factoid:

Each of the Big 3 have lost in the bronze medal match at the Olympics:

Federer lost to Arnaud di Pasquale at 2000 Sydney.
Nadal lost to Nishikori at 2016 Rio.
Djokovic lost to Del Potro at London 2012 and to Carreno Busta at 2020 Tokyo.

Djokovic is the only 1 to do it twice.

:cool:

I just finished watching the 3rd set and Novak wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting.

He just wasn't doing anything special and a guy as consistent as PCB made him pay.
Was he ever that " special " ? Special in other ways certainly. His reps in the toilet.

Who did it better?

Indeed ! But PCB is not up for GOAT status leader of the sport - And neither will Snokovic be either ever.
So really who cares? This childish behavior may be funny, exciting and entertaining for some. But it's over in modern tennis.
Grow up Children - Your behavior is from the last century and it 's not good example is it?

Well is it ?

You think I'm kidding?.... - Ok :cool:

No, nothing special about him at all. Won 20 majors by sheer luck.
Hey what a coincidence Fedal too ! Hilarious.
But as you know my point is who is the best ambassador for the sport ?

You think fans with half a brain or sponsors are going with Smashovic ?

Is Novaxx a good look for the Sport compared to Fedal ?
Now that is Hilarious !

I'm sure any sponsor that have not dropped him already have him plunged into his Psyche team big time.
He needs help.

A dissertation on TTW is begging to be written.
Indeed ! Good choice of Pychiarrist for TTW @Sysphus
I'm guessing that @Kralingen is not only new hear but to social media in general.

What absolutely Stuns me is that Smasovic fans have not been called out earlier due to his behavior.
Still the sponsor won't wait for Novaxx to cleanes his act. Too late now anyway.

Heheh, I've no problem with your posts at all ! Why would you think that ?
I have question for you though - Do you think Djokovic is good look for the sport currently ?
Is he the ambassador the the sponsors want to get young kids playing ?
Is Novak a role model? - An aggressive faking cheat ?

Or are they going to go with "mild mannered" father of 4 Roger ?
Or perhaps mature, humble and likeable Nedal the true King clay ?
What about Sir Andy "woke" Murray - He's a good voice for the sport?

The Goat debate is over - Fedal and may others hands down.
