Yeah I appreciate him, I just really don't like watching him. He's like an ******* version of Murray lol, why should I sit there and watch? :) I watched the Zverev and Medvedev matches of his this AO and strongly wish I did something else lol
I never imagined the day somebody would say Djokovic was a more boring version of Murray but fair (y)

Wawrinkas peak level is better than Djokovic and still he would lose to Federer anywhere but on clay, fascinating!

Literally every time I decide to watch him he acts like he's dying the whole match, then throws a tantrum, only to somehow win looking fresh and then do a wry smile lol, I can't. Idk how people do it



The word was @$$hole lol
Pretty much. I’d rather poke my eyes out than watch that boring, cheating *******.

Of course he’s more boring than Murray.

Atleast Murray has some variety for crying out loud.

The only variety that Djokovic offers is acting and tantrums, nothing in relation to tennis.

We all know somebody will eventually mention "Federer", so it may as well be me this time. ;)

In Federer's dominating 2006 season, his lone slam final loss was at RG to Rafael Nadal.
In Djokovic's dominating 2015 season, his lone slam final loss was at RG to Stan Wawrinka.

Let’s not pretend like Fed played against strong competition in slams in 06

His propensity for saving match points should be applauded, very few if any could do that multiple times to Fed of all people in Feds home court.
Yeah what a mental giant. Scraped by post prime Oldal on indoor fast grass and geriatric Fed with one foot in the nursing home, at his prime.

I wonder how he does it,

Seems to credit is diverting away from this match. Outside the big 3 this was certainly one of the best slam runs any player in the last 20 years has had.

Many would disagree with u on Nadal playing bad tennis in 2018 Wimbledon Semi Final, it was among his finer matches there.

Yeah couldn’t return and couldn’t win a big point to save his ass.

On fast indoor grass with an extra night of rest to give the panting Djokovic the rest he needed to win the Djokovic Open.

After 2010 you could say that Wim 2018 was the best Nadal played on grass.

Wawa was on FIRE that day! I was smirking to myself when Djoker won the first set. Djoker has this in the bag. Mannnnnn.....was I wrongggggg.
I was depressed for a while after that. Heck....I teared up a little much like Nole did at the end there.

Well deserved win for Stan. He wasn't going to be denied. Went for broke and it paid off BIG!

I rewatched the full match last year i was shocked at the weight and power behind the shots of Wawrinka yet he was so accurate.

All these new generation mugs must compulsory see Stan Wawrinka matches with Djokovic as a tutorial. They should learn what it takes to beat Djokovic.

Most importantly guts. Stan Wawrinka was a fighter. He would take Djokovic head on head..full fight for every point

Not just this match, there is 2013 AO, USO, 2014 AO, 2015 AO and 2016 USO.

With one French Open title, you gotta be kidding. Djokovic isn’t even top 10 on clay with guys like Guga, Kuerten, Wilander, Courier and Brugera way in front of him. Even one-time FO champions like Muster and Vilas have vastly superior clay records than Novak.
Still better on clay than Federer

showing respect to a cheater/faker/guy that thinks he’s above the law? Stop living on Mars little Ms. Manners
Bruh....where is this coming from? Why the hate? Let's all love each other. Isn't this what Tennis is all about?

Also, Djoko GOAT.

Yeah after that blatant BS he pulled against Fritz, got no respect for that cheater
I don't think you were watching the same match as me. There was no cheating involved.
Firstly, Nole got a boo boo and was hurt.
But being the super warrior that he is, he manned the F up and finished the job while playing hurt.
Where is the problem my guy????

Yep pretended like he got shot and was moving around like it was 2012 by the fifth set. (y)

Stan ruining the Grand Slam dream.

That loss made me believe that Djoko would never win RG. I gave up completely on him completing the CGS. And then 2016 happened.
A lion is never more dangerous than when he's hurt.

Understatement.

since 2012 he was more boring to watch than a sack of potatoes.

Add on his fake personality, gamesmanship, arrogance and the guy is a DISASTER for the sport

Of course he’s more boring than Murray.

You have derailed this post but I can tell you were NOT happy about how Novak was behaving in the match with Tayor Fritz at the AO in 2021. Am I correct in my assessment?
I'm not going to try and convince you one way or another.
I saw Nole as a fighting warrior who pulled out a great victory. You saw him as a sleazy, cheating *******! It's an interesting thing......perception.

Tomato, potato or whatever the saying is.
