Djokovic's injury

The only guy who can beat Novak is Medvedev. I think even a sub-par Novak beats Raonic/Zverev and Thiem comfortably.
I've been MOST disappointed by Thiem in this tournament. Way lower than expectations.
Medvedev is by far the best so far.
He is sucking right now

I'm usually not too harsh on Djokovic but this kind of exaggerated acting, gamesmanship and playing possum is a very bad look. Reminds me of diving in football/soccer. Turns out Fritz was right about this, props for how classy he handled it.

That what makes Djokovic a character in tennis similar to others like that of a Nick Kyrgios, Fabio Fognini, etc...! At least to me, his trademark is the fake injury guy and working himself to a rage and smashing racquets, yelling at his team.

Soccer is a team sport. Cannot compare diving and drawing a penalty to an individual tennis player faking an injury. Diving can draw a penalty and affect the outcome.

I could care less if my opponent is injured. I take care of business. If my opponent is limping, I always assume he could get a second wind and fight thru the injury and make great plays.

If opponent wants a medical time out, I do not let it disrupt me. I use the time out to my advantage. To rest. To stretch. To plan strategy.

I never let up! That is how I roll.

This whole Djoker injury controversy is bullsh*t.

1) Djoker injury was highly exaggerated.
2) He had some abdominal strain that's all and recovered.
Fritz fell for it and thought the match was his. With his crappy game and mindset, he blew off
3) he's the favorite to win Australia Open.
