Djokovic is so bad in doubles

Watching the IW match of Djokovic-Troicki vs Bopanna-Cuevas and the Serbians are getting massacred by a second level doubles team

Forget comparison with top 4 in terms of doubles expertise .

Novak does not even play as well as someone like Berdych or Tsonga who play the occasional doubles.

Premature ejaculation from OP (which is usual sign of impotence)
Novak actually brought his best game in that STB with excellent net play and his team turned score from 1 4 to 10 7 (with trade mark return winner on MP)

So bad that they just beat two experienced doubles players. I hope you feel stupid.
I suppose you watched the scorecard and not the match .

Djokovic was so out of position , mucked up at the net, left balls he should have taken - finally he reverted to baseline play.

Djokovic stopped play for 5 minutes when their opponents had huge momentum because there was the sound of instrumental music coming from somewhere and started his usual shenanigans holding his racket and playing it like a saxophone

Their opponents are a new pairing and Djokovic barely won it . But that is besides the whole point of how lost he looks in a doubles match

I know that he looks lost at times. But if you follow Djokovic you know that it can be misleading to judge him based on that. The guy often looks drunk, falling over while hitting baseline shots, unable to hit bh slices, volleys or smashes. Still he wins the Nole slam, beating all these players who do look sober and able to hit these shots.

I saw the highlights and saw that he played terribly the first set and missed almost every volley. He played better after that set but the point is that he looks a lot worse than he actually is. You think someone who is "lost" on court can beat freaking Bopanna in doubles? Or beat any other professional doubles team for that matter?

Djokovic is so bad in doubles but still beats No.1 pair in the world. You simply dont know what you are talking about even though you try very hard to convince us otherwise.

Novak strings together a rare 2 win streak and of course his minions are out in full force.
Being a consistent minion with regular digs at Djoker, Nadal, Murray or any other player and his supporters indicates obsession. That definitely isn't a good thing.

Congrats to Troicki. He has upped his game big time.

Not that the Serbians beat the French in straight sets or something. They saved a MP and won by the thinnest of margin.

You are out in full hatred force 24/7 . Great addition to OP. Too bad that you can't see it
I actually want to like Novak. He seems like a pretty nice person, I just dislike his monotonous baseline game and lack of net skills.

You don't have to like him at all. You could be decent detractor (as a fan I'm ok with it) but your constant bashing gives a completely different picture:)
( I read your thread about Opelka, what an contrast in attitudes:confused: )

Funny after all the detracting, Nole & Troiki knocked off the #1 seeds! :rolleyes: :p ;)
"#1 seeds" doesn't really mean anything when real singles players only show up once or twice a year to play doubles. This is every bit as unsurprising as Kyrgios beating the Bryans.

None of these high seeded teams are "great." They're the greatest since real tennis players stopped playing doubles a quarter century ago. Mac and Fleming would have bageled this whole field, if the field were in their primes.

Mac and Martina would have bageled this whole field, if the field were in their primes.

It's pretty sad for the doubles players IMO that singles players can knock em out when their one focus is doubles strategy, net play, etc. They must feel like ****
Yeah Herbert looked terribly disappointed when he was leaving stadium , Nico a bit mad (at himself and his doubles partner, not at Djok/Troy)
