Just quick key notes:Can anyone translate? He looks so sad
Are you kidding? This is Davis Cup and Nole's not like Rafa jumping ship to save himself! He has a couple months to recover for the AO! There's no one that tough on the French team; Tsonga a mere shell of himself after so many absences from the tour! Gasquet about to cash it in along with Monfil hopefully! If it's bad, a substitution will be made I'm sure!This is a bad move by Djokovic, his elbow will be ****ed for Australia ..
He said his elbow was fine. I actually like how Djoker is pushing through some of these minor injuries and not making excuses or "jumping ship" like you said.Are you kidding?

Not exactly "body beautiful," but Nole's obviously the most fit of the top players; even over Rafa who's a walking corpse if you go by the injuries and general en oui of playing the game when he feels like it!I just have to say how ridiculously and superbly fit Novak looks here, like a human machine. I think it's easier to see the fitness of pro athletes when they're in street clothes. Tenacity posted this earlier.
Novak is now leading for # of tier 1 events won: 55 ( 16 slams + 5 WTF + 34 masters) while both Fed and Nadal are tied at 54.
Great job getting in the lead despite being the youngest of the 3! (Nadal: 19 slams + 0 WTF + 35 masters, Fed: 20 slams + 6 WTF + 28 masters)
Yeah but I am not sure how wise it is to stack his calendar full of tournaments just before AO. The week before the AO!!That's actually 4.5 weeks, but still pretty hefty early schedule. Up to 6 matches in 10 days, up to 4 matches in 7, and up to 7 5-setters in 14. He probably won't play until Dubai after that, though, if I was to hazard a guess.
Captain Obvious is here. I just want to say the jacket he is wearing in the top picture is damn sexy. I like it, I like it.Btw, Novak joined his national team today for Davis Cup.

Good luck to Serbia in Davis Cup. They are playing vs France, my country. Will be hard to root when they play haha
Okay that's genius.GreenSet will now supply courts for both the AO and Adelaide (ATP), so that's why he's playing there. Kinda like he went with Tokyo before the Olympics.
I do not think 2019 is that high level wise though. Results yes.2015
The last two years he's put up good results, but there's something about each season that doesn't get them in the top 3. 2015 and 2011 are far and away the best, followed by 2016 (his collapse notwithstanding, the 1st half was incredible.) 2018 follows because of the hugely solid performances at the end of the year, but he still failed to cross the finish line twice (Paris and WTF).
Djokovic played similarly most of this year. Quite solid in slams, but letting small things get to him. The matches against Thiem this year really exemplify that. He was on the verge of winning both matches, yet choked. Moreover, he went out early in both Indian Wells and Miami. There's just something bugging him. It seems like small things are getting to him more and more, which isn't a good thing by any means. I really hope he figures out what's bothering him so much and comes back with the hunger we saw at the AO.
