during MS Rome I said Djokovic was going to be next number 1, it's so difficult to predict all those things.!

That's why it's called "predicting" :rofl_2:  No one (not even herc, or shankar, really KNOW what's going to happen in the future - otherwise we'll all be millionaires!) :rofl_2:

Nole will be just fine. The problem is that people here don't realize how good he is. Novak will show you what he is made of  :)

Everyone realizes how good he is, its just a matter of him showing up or not.

 There have been a lot of really good people in the past, how many of them have made it past a certain level? For the record, Djokovic has beaten Federer twice, once in a 3 set victory, edging Fed out in two tiebreaks, and then once more at the AO which was a good win. That's over a year now. he's 2-7 against Fed. Sorta like Safin who's also really good and yet hasn't won more than 2 times against Fed. He's also like 4-10 against Rafa whom you'd think he has a clear edge over at least on htardcourts and still he's managed to lose a few.

he's the clear cut and solid number 3 player in the world till now, right behind Fed and Nadal and no one can question or challenge that, and with the exception of the 'new' murray, he is far better than every other player ranked below him - and people realize or expect him to be even better and do something more.  And he's yet to show up for that. That's about the only thing I can tell.

We'll be seeing how good he is, huh. At least, after his recent "consciousness raising" by way of Mr. Murray, perhaps he no longer thinks he's the hottest thing to come along since Roger.  The come down will do him good and perhaps we'll see a more mature Djoker. Perhaps.
