Alright this may be premature

but Djokovic is losing this one unless he somehow summons '15 form with his FH.

Sinner is having little trouble dealing with his groundstrokes.
This match is on Sinner's head 100%. Which... isn't that reliable. He's played like this before but often he gets nervous and starts missing lots of serves. Against Alcaraz it wasn't enough to lose the game but faltering against Djokovic is a different story.

Djokovic pushing from the baseline wanting to get Sinner to make a mistake. It ain't happening. He needs to get aggressive. This is on the way down for him - fast..

I hate to potentially jinx, but I just remembered that Berdych beat a (sub-par) Djokovic twice at Wimbledon...

As I said at the beginning of Wimbledon, Djokovic just isn't in Slam winning form this year. This has a lot to do with him being banned from tournaments and not being match fit, but it was clear that he wouldn't go from barely being able to play 3 sets in Belgrade to full warrior mode in Best of 5 in such a short time. Only Nadal could do so.

Djokovic is done winning grand slams. Last slam was in 2021 Wimbledon. He's devolved into a powerless pusher

He’s got 20 slams (plus everything else he’s won). If he doesn’t win anything more he still has one of the best careers in tennis history. And he’s still good enough to be contender at every slam for next few years. But his days of dominance are over and if he really cared about the slam race he should have made different choices. But it’s his life, not mine. :unsure:
Yea pretty much this. He still has a chance to turn this around but not looking good so far.

What's wrong with Djokovic... head slumped, looking sluggish...

Is he trying to play mind games already?
his strength is consistence and.endurance to make opponent commit ue
when opponent is in god mode, esp on grass, djoker does not have any weapon to hit winners
that is why i always say he is boring

It’s not that. His game is regressing in some parts give me a break.

Novak is being outclassed. Unless he does something quick, he is not winning this. He is not grinding down Sinner. I don't know what else he can do though. He is not at all aggressive these days, so I don't even know if that's an option anymore.
