His newest release: "Novak Djokovic is too ungodly to ever be called the greatest"
Quotes from his masterpiece:
"Everything about the Serb is just a bit off. It starts with the haircut. It's like an 'Action Man' doll cut. It's military. Has a hair moved in the past 10 years? The cut must make sense for tennis. No floppy hair flicking drops of sweat into your eyes. But it's just not Borg or McEnroe or Gerulaitis or Federer or Nadal. It's all just a bit more Ivan Lendl."
"Then there's the clothes.With Djokovic you sometimes think that 'Nole' is short for Nostyle. He has those ironed creases in his clothes that never move. And they always look brand new. Djokovic forever looks like a boy heading off for his first day at school. "
"But perhaps what defines Djokovic as much as anything is the way he plays tennis. When he beat Nadal in Melbourne it was like watching a machine play. It was one of the most brilliant grand slam performances of the past ten years and yet it left you cold. Watching Djokovic practise a couple of hours before his semifinal match, he just couldn't hit the wide, flat first serve into the advantage court. The machine was malfunctioning. "
"He does not have the grace of Federer or the muscular Rambo of the heavier Nadal. "
"Djokovic keeps hitting shots that most of us could sometimes hit, but does it with percentages near 100 per cent. It's ungodly. "
"But if Djokovic wins again (Wimbledon), and he starts at almost even money favourite, can we bear the thought of starting to think that he just may be the greatest ever. Is winning enough? Do statistics triumph more than human factors. "
Icing on the cake - quoting Kyrgios as opinion that matters:
"He's a champion of the sport, one of the greatest we'll ever see. Honestly I think he will get the grand slam count. I think he will pass Federer... No matter how many grand slams he wins he will never be the greatest for me simply because I've played him twice and I'm sorry, but if you can't beat me, you're not the greatest of all time."
Happily a nine-year-old grabbed Kyrgios at last week's Queen's tournament and asked Kyrgios about this business of greatness.
Vuk said: "Don't forget Novak Djokovic."
Who?" Kyrgios replied.
"Novak Djokovic," said Vuk
"Who's that?" said Kyrgios.
"He's the Serbian tennis player."
"Oh yeah, I think I know him."
It's knockabout stuff but there's a human truth in there."
Was there any tennis champion in history, and I am talking about Sampras heights here, so blatantly provoked, discredited and slandered as Novak Djokovic is through his whole career ?
How is it even possible that as journalist you allow yourself to write such trash of column about any sport giant just because he isn't your cup of tea ?
