Was it a mistake to let go of Goran?

Well, being caught with what exactly? You made it sound like it was about multiple "evil" things he did (at least from Jelena's point of view), and out of kind of a hybris as you hinted at. It appeared like you know something about it, and it certainly would be interesting. So what was it?

I used the word dalliances, basically he was partying and running through lots of women and his coaching staff were egging him on and keeping it quiet from the wife & the world.

Watching Goran from the players box, during tournaments, its easy to see what he brings to the table. He was very involved in Novaks matches He was probably the main motivator towards him in his time there.

I think a guy like Djokovic thrives off of that type of coaching. The same way that Boris helped him.

You can’t compare Djokovic to someone like Federer. Fed is an alien and could stay on track without a dedicated coach. But even he needed great advisors in stretches when he was coachless and winning majors, and he was shaped by some of the best coaches in the world coming up.
What Saul said is not correct. He needs to go back and re- listen to what both Fed and Rafa said in that ad. They both said that they needed to listen to outside input, to surround themselves 'with the best people', in addition to some self-coaching.

Tbh I think Ivanisevic was an awesome part of Djokovic’s team. Don’t know exactly why they parted but I wish them both the best

Ah okay, THE relationship killer number one.

But then, nevertheless it’s strange that someone who doesn’t accept the common “rule” of not having sex with other women during marriage then all of a sudden accepts a “punishment” for doing so. Usually people like that don’t accept any pressure in that regard.

If true it would be a weird combination of not enough love for a wife leading to doing those things first, and yet still enough love to do anything for her not leaving later. And all that despite someone like Djokovic would easily be capable of starting another relationship with a woman who would accept an “open” relationship right from the start, so that he could carry on while still having a (constant) relationship either.
