This has to be the 200th times he destroyed his racket after an embarrassing meltdown. It's about time he takes an anger management classes to control his temper because it's a disgrace.


Nole smashed his racket 3 times and received both a chorus of boos from the spectators and a code violation in his 1st match at Monte Carlo.

Asking Djokovic to stop being angry is akin to asking lion to eat grass. He feeds on anger , have you mot learned anything yet?

still won, no?

If you're one of the GOATS you can break racquets at will, but yes Fed or Rafa wouldn't break more than 1 guaranteed. (because they're twin GOATS)

Everyone gets angry once in a while, we are all human. But there are few that has an emotional disorders which is unhealthy. Nole needs to control his anger, especially when you are in front of a camera where millions of people watching.

It's ok to break a racket from time to time. The problem imo is the manner in which he does it.

1) He doesn't consider his location on the court. He will literally do it anywhere with total disregard to his surroundings.
2) It rattles his opponent. Now, that's not always the case. Sometimes Djokovic breaks right back because he's motivated again after pumping himself up. There are, however, instances that his opponent totally melts down with UE afterwards.

I don't know what to say. It was embarrassing. Fed did it too a couple years ago playing against Djokovic. What was it? Miami or IW? I can't remember.

I do understand you are frustrated with your game but just don't do it. Control yourself. He won today and it was the ugliest match ever. Sorry for people who didn't watch the match. Shoot. I know we are not supposed to be talking about it in this forum. I'm not actually not sure what the rules are. Help me :). What is the time we can discuss tennis matches after they are over?

Lol He plays better almost everytime he breaks a racket. That means he's emotionally engaged. That's a good sign in any of his matches. He's embodiment of sith philosophy in tennis. Getting rid of it would make him weaker, less focused. That would bring his level down. It may also either intimidate his opponents or at least bring their focus down. He's more in control of his emotions than people realise.

I don't mind the occasional racquet break, but Djokovic does it a little more than I would like. Gets a bit trying at times.

But that's his game. He feeds off that negative emotion. When he's happy and passive and quiet, he's usually losing meekly. Plus, I think the pressure of another NCYGS is getting to him. He was pretty bad about racquet breaking back in early 2016 too. He's got a lot riding on the next couple months.

Novak Djokovic’s behaviour is indeed a disgrace, and utterly unbefitting of a man who sits atop the world rankings, and is the President of the players’ council.

The game deserves a better role model.
I said in the other thread that Djokovic should stop smashing racquets. However, who do you want for the president of the council? Fed could do it. He was there already.

Djokovic was chosen by other players. You can't just pick a role model. It doesn't work that way. Your role model could be very different than mine. :)

People would always find a reason to complain and take the moraly high ground. If you want any different dont watch or go out there and do better. You need to be in someone shoes before you going to judge him. Its embarrassing only if you make it so

OP acts like he sees Djokovic for the first time today.:D
Well, this is Djokovic, 2005, 2013, 2019, whatever the year, he'll get angry with the crowd, he'll smash his racquet, he'll yell at his box, yep, that's Djokovic.

I never get the impression that he gets angry because of whats happening on court. With the way he reacts, and the rumors of goings on in his personal life that arise from time to time, you get the impression he's letting out his emotion on court because he is unhappy about things off it. In my personal experience, whenever I was unhappy in life the court is where it would show the most, with adrenaline and dissatisfactio . He's lucky hes one of the best in the world, or else his "therapy sessions" on court would look a lot worse.

Anyone but Novak Djokovic.

Yeah he plays better angry. The guy is a street fighter at heart. Pepe tried to cut that off but his true self came back. Glad he has his balls back now.
I am personally not a fan of these type of outbursts, but I do have to agree. His “true self” not only came back but has won three majors and counting. Case closed.
