Until we get a concensus on the name this will have to do
It's a bittersweet moment for me, starting this thread. I maintained that Nole wasn't worthy of such an honour until he had won a Slam and, sadly, that came to pass earlier this year
Dark times for tennis.
On the upside it will be nice to have somewhere to gleefully celebrate and record his losses. I'll be interested to note how many of his defeats this year are accompanied by a)standing on the baseline, hands on hips (or bent over) barely able to breathe b) much clutching of the lower back c) injury timeouts or are d)clear tanks.
I didn't see the game today but from reading the comments in the match thread I gather he ticked all four boxes
Do we include Davis Cup defeats in these threads? I am loathe to include Davydenko because of the nature of the loss.

No one deserved to start this thread more than you!
I must say I liked the initial title better otherwise it sounds more like a result thread: The Thread Where People Who Don't Like Nole Come To Laugh About His Defeats
Alternatively, since people cannot agree on a particular animal, character etc, I propose we name it 'The Djoko Roasting Thread'
and for every loss each poster can be creative and use the animal, character etc of his/her preference and present a feast, funny photo, story, poem, whatever... to express his/her immense joy
