Fellow djok fans: How is the camp feeling about his chances?

Our man seems to be losing sets he should have otherwise not. His form seems concerning. Dropping sets against nobodies and his pigeon Nishikori doesn't bode well.

i'm not sure if he will get past beretinni let alone Zverev at this point with his current level of play. I'll be the happiest if he pulls this off, but I don't get the sense of djokovic feeling like a cornered tiger (when he plays his best). I'm not seeing the same fire he showed in french open. Seems rather lackluster.

After this Match i am way more optimistic. His shots and movement looked way better imo. After Novaks first three Matches i had the impression that his limit is at like 80%. He was defo above that vs Brooksby. Dont let the first set fool you.

He'll beat Mateo, but if he starts the match with Zverev like he did in previous rounds, it won't bode well and Sasha will run away with it this time I'm afraid. Hope I'm proven wrong by Nole of course! CYGS is on the line here!!!

...

Btw,what are they talking about??
They ask each other what they are doing: Nole jokes he's working the night shift to earn some bread...Jelena says she's making a video, he says she was working before the clip...Nole says how washing up has therapeutic and calming effect on him after the match...he says he doesn't like dishwasers but likes (to wash up) pans...

Yeah I think he will beat berrettini too. I think if Novak makes the final he might get it done although mad lad wouldn’t be easy. I feel though like you say chainz and goldie man is probably his biggest threat especially after what happened at olympics. If he passes that test his chances would be great but will be tough. One thing we learnt though is you can never write him off.

Bruh, this is by far the best outfit of Djokovic's grand slam career. Lacoste went all in its bag for this one.

Great achievement but also highlights his poor record here in finals. The first 2 in his career was fair enough due to not being the player he was post 2010 but he has had some upsets here hopefully he makes it right on Sunday
This is Lebron kind of situation. He has to win 1 more final.

Have some faith…maybe he will go for all the major records this year. Mathematically possible! And winning four Slams in 12 months is something he knows how to do. Go for 21 in 21!

PS: I’m not betting on it though.
One more match for him to achieve the goal I set for him on Jan 29th:)

Slayed the ghosts of Olympics in emphatic fashion.. How many times he has done this..Thiem was behaving badly in 2019, put him in place in AO 2020.Medvedev was behaving badly, put him on place in AO 2020 and now with Sacha..GOAT..:love::love:

Do you guys think Medvedev represents a harder or softer challenge for Djokovic compared to Zverev? I haven't watched much of Meddy recently but I know he's had good results. I feel like Zverev serve is better, and Zverev hits the ball bigger while being nearly as consistent from the back of the court.

I dont see Med having a chance. Novak is peaking. Imo Med was lucky vs. van de Zandschulp. Had he lost that 4th set he goes out. Weather will also be on Novaks side. Pretty hot and humid. Not as bad as in Tokyo but Med nearly collapsed in those conditions. If everything goes normal Novak is winning in 3 Sets.

You summed it up nicely. Zverev was big threat. Medvedev can't even generate the offense. His hope is Nole self imploding. But that won't happen
