Sorry responding seperate.Djokovic is not significantly better than his opposition today?
Strategy? Djoko wins with fitness, strong ground game, confidence, not strategy.
Olympics are a big tennis event today.
Djokovic wins on strategy. He's one of the most strategic players in Federer and Nadal. He plays patterns a lot, more so then most.
His most obvious strategy change was Med going to net, even S&V. But most his strategy is more sutitle, he just continues to put opposition into places they don't want to be. This comes from his BTL backhand.
Regarding the Olympic, it's only a big event after,
Though I think it rates in the pack of Masters, above Madrid Canadian, Shanghai and Paris.
, It has BO5 final which maybe helps.
This is backed by its value,
0pt was 750pt also demonstration 1984.
$0 prize money.
Field is generally worse than Masters including non-compulsory and during period when compulsory didn't exist.
Personally I think one of the reasons it grew in prominence was as a seperate for the big 4.
2012 was the only Oly that holds much value due to reasonable field
Has no set calander , get pushed into the existing tennis calander. Poor lead up and often busy with more important events, which players choose.
Some players rate it, others don't. Some rate DC much higher but it's no longer so not in discussion.
I think it has higher value in the WTA. Not sure why.
I don't rate it a big Tourney. Many agree, some, mainly non-tennis viewers disagree. But to me it's like Oly to football or basketball maybe distance cycling & boxing . Not so important.
