Hey guys,

You can check out my analysis of Djokovic's game and career right here:
http://www.onlinetennisinstruction.com/novakdjokovic.html

Would love to hear your feedback on it

Regards

Florian

Thanks Florian. I really like your analysis about Novak. The only thing that I disagree (a little bit tho) with you is the mental part. Yes, young Djokovic did have some lapses and I wasn't always impressed with his behavior on the court but this new Djokovic 2.0 became a mental giant IMHO. He's been very composed, no emotions etc.

Hey Alex,

His confidence is obviously sky high right now and he certainly believes that he will make big shots when it really matters. That does not necessarily mean that he is a mental warrior like Nadal for example though. Think about Federer in his prime...he had the same confidence but that was based on simply being so much better than the other guys and not necessarily on being very strong in the mental area.

Not sure with Djoker right now. Possibly he is developing in that direction of being a mental warrior. I definitely think he is better than Roger in this regard

Cheers

Florian

I would agree with your assessment of the mental strength of the today's top 3.  Including Andy (not Roddick) I see them as follows:

  • Rafa
  • Nole
  • Roger
  • Andy (not Roddick)

It's a toss up between Nole and Rog at this point.
Would love to see Lendl instill some fierce focus/confidence in Murray and drive away the demons that distract him from his best play.
CONK da ball!!!

Novak paid his dues, serving all those years as the eternal bridesmaid to Rafael and Roger.. The 2011 season turned the tables on the Duopoly. Records were broken like trees in the path of a typhoon..  :)>>>>

    Novak Djokovic to join Nike, after Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal. :)) :)



    Five-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic is likely to join along with Nike, after his rivals Former World No. 1 Roger Federer and king of clay Rafael Nadal, who are under contract with Nike endorsement.

    World No. 1 Novak Djokovic is going to end the contract with the brand Sergio Tacchini, where he is expecting to join voice with Nike. Serbian is very close to sing-up a contract with Nike, after his current sponsor Sergio Tacchini will no longer support him financially. Sources stated Sergio Tacchini has failed to respect the contract with Djokovic, while other sponsors providing a bonus for each victory for Serbian tennis champion.

    10-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal, who was sponsored in clothing and shoe by Nike, where he also signature on-court outfit entailed a variety of sleeveless shirts paired with 3/4 length Capri pants.

    Recently, Nadal and his close friend Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo have team-up for the new Nike commercial ad to promote their new shoes ‘the Mercurial Vapor VIII’. Both the stars have played tennis and soccer in the new Nike commercial video, which was released last month.

    Nike announced that, three-time Grand Slam champion Maria Sharapova has renewed her contract with company for signing an 8 year deal for $70 million.

    Ash, thanks for posting this but it's very confusing atm. Novak's team denied that he is leaving ST ... I don't know. I guess we will have to wait and see. Personally, I would like to see Djokovic with Nike, because ST simply can't promote and market Djokovic properly. I still can't believe that Adidas chose Murray over Djokovic... idiots, they must be  kicking their arses right now

    i hope he changes from ST to nike...
    i felt ST's designs were very boring throught out 2011..they seem to like white, black, blue & red.. :mad1: even K-Swiss was better.. :)~

    Nike on the other hand is much more colorful & would suit novak's personality..:)

    & yep...adidas must feel really F***ed up right now for letting novak go.. :rofl_2:

    Good decision.
     
     
     
     
     
     
    Novak Djokovic has decided to pull out of the Serbia Open tournament, an ATP World Tour 250 event taking place in Belgrade from April 30 to May 6.
    “After consulting with my family, I’ve made a decision not to take part in the tournament this year. I will take some time, try restore my emotional energy. This is certainly one of the toughest decisions in my career, but it is impossible for me to play in the next few days and to think about tennis, when there are some other things in my head,” Djokovic explained.
    Nole will next play at the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournament in Madrid. The 24-year-old Belgrade native will enter the event as the defending champion.

    Thanks Swish for posting this. And Thank God he is not playing this little tournament. As I said earlier I don't think he should have played MC either.

    Can't help feeling for Djoker - the Belgrade event revolves around Novak! Without him, the tournament will struggle to sustain attendance levels compared to last year.. Still, this is an opportunity to the other Serbs in the draw to gain traction at their home turf..
    I hope Nole comes back emotionally and physically recharged from this break - Nadal will ensure he has a rough ride this year..  :)

    well, I hear ya. I firmly believe that Djokovic shouldn't be playing Belgrade regardless of his situation ... That's a small 250 ATP tournament... they need to find a way to attract other players (not necessary Nadal of Fed, but you know what I mean) ... they can not revolve the whole tournament around Djokovic ....
