Re: Djokovic on Andy Murray and Roger Federer
I like Djokovic but he should watch his mouth. Not that he's wrong - I think Federer's chances of beating Sampras' record at this point are rather slim - Rafa owns him on clay, Djokovic is at or above his level on hardcourt, and both will be gunning to take him down at Wimby. And he's nearly 27 now, which is old in tennis terms. However, what's obvious to observers needn't be articulated by an up-and-coming opponent, especially when he's referencing himself as the primary reason why Roger may not beat Sampras' record (he is certainly a factor, but equally big factors are Federer's age and mental state re: tennis).
Nole fan: "...most Fedtards seem to be very rabid and rude." (I agree 100%)
You can bet Djokovic's mom just screamed "Another king is dead" right about now - in the remotest corner - of her bathroom - followed by "The other one is buried." (from tennisplanet.me, following Madrid 2011 Djokovic d. Nadal 7-5 6-4)
