Conspiracy against Djokovic

Its quite hilarious that the junior conspiracy theorists do not realise how desperate the tennis governing bodies were for Novak to get the CYGS.
It would have been a huge promotional boost for the sport.
The USTA had even organized a symbolic "passing of the torch" style presentation event with Rod Laver that would have gone ahead if Novak won. Laver was to hand over the trophy to Djokovic with Elton John's "Rocket Man" (a reference to Laver's nickname) playing in the background.
Yes. It'd he story we'd be telling our grandchildren. Everything was ready. Huge boost for sport and sending Novak to stratosphere. All the headlines. Oh I feel sad we didn't get to witness it.

Haha this is ridiculous. Berrettini is very much a threat with that FH and serve. Pretty inform aswell with Wimbledon final on his belt.
Berrettini's a total mug on hard court. It's kind of astonishing, actually. Less than 55% career win-% on hard. Never won a title – never even made a final, even at the 250 level. 4 top-ten wins, but one of those was Thiem earlier this year (he ain't playing top-10 tennis anymore) and another was against Thiem in the last round-robin match at the ATP Finals in 2019 where Thiem was already qualified and basically tanked to preserve his chances for the knock-out rounds. Outside two tournaments – US Open 2019 and Shanghai 2019 – he's done basically nothing, and that's not really even an exaggeration (making the USO quarters again this year is good, but it's not like he beat anyone notable to do it).

But yeah, collectively, going Berretini-Zverev-Med to round out a slam draw isn't what I would call "easy." But even that pales in comparison to a lot of those early-to-mid-2010s draws Novak himself navigated, sometimes without much fuss at all.

Do you think there was a conspiracy against Djokovic by giving him a very tough draw for the us open 2021 so that he would not win the calendar slam?
How was it a tough draw. On paper it was easy until.Semis but he played pretty poor to lose sets in early rounds.

Agree. The consolation for me is that it is still one of the greatest seasons ever.

And Med would have been saying “If I had won, what would they show” again

Nah. Didn’t have to face one single slam winner in route to the final. I felt bad for the respectable Djokovic fans, your guy almost made history, a Halley’s Comet moment missed. For the Djokovic “fan boys”, you guys needed this loss.

You do realize Berrettini Zverev and Medvedev had a combined zero slams total before uso?

Zverev has zero wins over top 10 in slams...:sick:

Berrettini with that pathetic backhand shouldn't even be in the top 10...:rolleyes:

Wait, so Mr 'Pressure is a privilege' can't handle a semi-tough draw, breaks down in tears while folding like an origami pigeon, and his loss is because of a conspiracy?
It's Illuminaty, they are up to get him so he wouldn't get Serbia its revenge.

Nah. In theory he's still the favourite. Djokovic and Serena just can not handle the pressure. It's understandable. No matter how great they're, they're still human.

Of course there was a conspiracy, no question about it. The man below was born and raised 9 miles from where Flushing Meadows is located where the USO is held so it's very obvious who's to blame. And remember--- he's often said he's a huge Nadal fan and even invited Rafa to the White House. 100% conspiracy!

It is only because he is Serbian. That is well documented by fans.

So your theory is, the powers that be in the ATP can control the draw of a tournament, right? So they decided at this last GS they would give him what you are calling a tough draw to keep him from getting it? So that also means they gave him all the easy draws to get to this point too, right? They would be controlling ALL GS draws, so that is just as likely then.

It was only a very tough draw bc he LOST. Djokovic was not playing well for the entire tournament. Lost sets in every round but one. You Djokers make me laugh…
