Djokovic visits "energy pyramids" I can't come up with this stuff

When will Djoko start his search for the dragon balls?
I wonder if in hundreds of years, the pyramid of energy equivalent will be some guy who unearthed a volume of Naruto and starts talking about a lost civilization built with chakra.

And then some athlete is gonna be like "releasing the four finger seal has improved my reaction time"

Nah, he's been on TTW and is really trying to live up to @MichaelNadal 's "Imhotep" nickname

Here he is hoovering up the Rome title this year after visiting the pyramids:



It's either that or he's trying to insinuate he's a member of the Illuminati / ilerminaty

After all, the ilerminaty put gluten in Novak's bread making him weak:



But ever since DjoVinci became king of the ilerminaty people have been able to live without eating, with people in hot countries even gaining weight from photosynthesis:

Djokovic made a deal with the Illuminati to gain the ultimate power of gluten free and eating like an herbivore dinosaur, common knowledge.

What a bunch of uninformed judgmental tools in this thread. Of course they're all perfectly happy with pseudoscientific terror that lasts almost a year now.
There are conflicting viewpoints, and in truth not a lot of scientific data, but there is definitely some evidence to suggest this isn't total quackery. Now, if he started wearing one of those wrist bands, that'd be a different story.



I think the answer given in the below does a good job of balancing things:

I must've missed it. What is this pseudoscientific terror you speak of?

Edit: It didn't even occur to me you were referring to the pandemic!

I wonder if Novak will find that to be sufficient without the "normal" sources of "positive energy"?

You know, like, excellent health, good family, dedicated life, money and so on.

Or is that a "positive energy" when one is so bored and looks for impossible answers?

:cool:

I'm open minded to you perhaps not being a complete idiot. I think that's pretty open minded of me... you might disagree.
Negative ions are real, that part is not up for debate. Their effect from waterfalls and other natural phenomena is debatable but imo not nearly as controversial as an anti-vaccination stance. It is also not nearly as harmful, even if it turns out the research is faulty.

How does he even know that "it" works, if he cannot separate the main sources from the BS?

:cool:
Currently I don't think anyone can claim to know, but he believes it. I wouldn't be surprised if that was helpful in getting his head right after the RG slaughter, and surely that's the point?

I'm a huge Djokovic fan but he starts to seem like a crazy religious maniac. Please stop with all this BS and focus on the real world.

The truth is that Novak takes these records and pursuit of “GOAT” status more seriously than Rafa or Roger. That’s part of why they’re more likable. They are not as uptight as Novak and you see it in their in court behavior.
I don’t understand this. First of all I think all 3 of them are generally competitors who want to be at the top badly, as long as it’s within the rules. And I don’t see what should NOT be likeable about that attitude. On the contrary, if someone wouldn’t care, I would see no sense in watching (like Kyrgios for example).

But out of those 3 Djokovic is the one who is often distracted by something and then doesn’t care for a while befure turning into a warrior again. So I would say if one out of those 3 doesn’t care about being GOAT all the time, then it’s Djokovic. Some rather small discussions and topics can mean the world to him for a short time (even while being on court) and winning the match becomes secondary.

Wait, the guy literally had a Magnet guru in his team for the whole of 2011, but people are shocked just now in 2020 about some of the Djokovic's alternative believes. Lol 8-B
Then I would say he is improving, because at least there is some evidence to support the waterfall benefits (although the oxygen claim could certainly be contested). Every top athlete has to have true belief, and if this gets him there then I think it's almost genius in its simplicity!

It's 2020, people are supposed to be a little better educated than in the past. Yet some here are demonstrating neanderthal levels of intellect - and I apologise to all the Neanderthals reading this.

Tennis is primarily a Mental Game. At the highest level, the person with the better mental prowess on the day usually wins the match.

Each player does what he does because they think it will enhance their mental game. Who are you or I to argue that is wrong? In any case Novak's regime is actually backed up by Science so belaboring the point is a waste of time.

To those who are critical of Novak's actions here ... Please explain to me how they are any different to Rafa saying the emotional support he receives from his family helps him to win?

One thing for sure afaic ... going forward in life and in tennis ... those with Open Minds are going to succeed a lot more easily than those without.

Imagine thinking the pandemic is a hoax and "energy tunnels" are real... that's straight up mental illness.
No imagine thinking that governments have deliberately imposed industrial and business restrictions effectively effing their economy over for like half a decade and risking utter Ill will of the people (before some elections even) by imposing restrictions just to curb freedom(which they already do a lot) .

So many experts here on what it takes to be a top player and win 17 slams. Thank God we can rely on their years of coaching and playing experience!
You don't need oxygen tunnels.

Just pop in a few Lindt chocolates once in a while or go fishing.

I haven't seen mention of this, so here we go:
Djokovic has decided to visit a "pyramid park" containing "energy tunnels" of some sort to help heal himself after his RG loss:

Seriously, what happened to this dude, I can't wait to hear the tell all book from Vadja or the inside scoop from Agassi years and years from now when he was on the team.

Djokovic fans endlessly post that Fed is a weak era, untalented mug. They’re obviously experts on what it takes to be a top player and win 20 slams.

I mean, I can understand the Pepe Imaz stuff on some level, Novak was probably feeling down and some guy comes in with a message that fits a void that winning matches and tournaments doesn't fill. The "long hugs" are cringey, but I don't see something particularly nefarious about it.
But all you need to do to debunk the pyramid stuff is one Google search, and you can see that it's just a business scam.
