How do you percieve Djokovic right now?

Currently he's in a kind of "limbo", with respectable ranking-point gaps between him and both Nadal (1090 pts.) and Davydenko (1040 pts.). So - how do you percieve him?

He needs to show lasting power before being inducted into any 'trinity' in my opinion.
Right now he is certainly better than the rest...and the most deserving of the world number 3 position this year. But that's it.

He is a 'could be' who still isn't.

Re: How do you percieve Djokovic right now?

my first answer would be.. with my eyes

na, serioulsy, voted Best of the rest of the world. A few good tournaments don't make the case. Maybe if he won the TMC beating the crap out of Federer (and that means without choking) he coul be the lesser evil of the trinity

I don't quite get you: those are objective results, but what do YOU make of them personally?

As the best ever Serbian tennis player.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: How do you percieve Djokovic right now?

Yes - I'm sure some people will take exception to this, but my own view is that he is the natural successor to Roger Federer, and is a far more complete and talented player than Nadal. It would not surprise me to see him taking over the Number 2 position next year, and I'm sure he will become Number 1 when/if Roger decides to retire in say 4-5 years.

Ignoring the Nadal bit in your post because I know that you dislike him with a passion but erm...how are you sure that Novak will be number one if Roger retires in 4-5 years? Who is to say that not another player we're not (totally) aware of is not going to step up.

A bit premature. It's possible, I guess, but it's premature
