Djokovic on Andy Murray and Roger Federer

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/oth...-stronger.html

On Murray:

Quote:
"I still believe Andy has great potential and talent, but maybe he needs to improve his confidence.

"Last year, he got injured in Hamburg and missed Wimbledon on his favourite surface. He came back to win Doha early this year, but then he struggled a little. I think it's just a matter of time for Andy, but he needs to improve his physical and mental strength."

But Djokovic is convinced Murray can join him in the top five. "There's still a lot of time on Andy's side to come and join me," he said. "But he needs to start winning again."
On Federer:

Quote:
"This time last year I would have said Federer would beat Sampras's record. Now I'm not so sure," said Djokovic. "His aura has gone. He's not as dominant as he was, and since I beat him in Australia he's looked frustrated. Players are beginning to challenge him now, especially myself and Rafa. He's got 12 Grand Slams to his name and maybe he will beat Sampras, but now I'm here it will be tough for him."

“For life be, after all, only a waitin' for somethin' else than what we're doin'; and death be all that we can rightly depend on.” - Bram Stoker, Dracula

Yes. Now that Djokovic is here, it will be tough for Federer.

You can't say he's lacking in confidence.

wat.

Re: Djokovic on Andy Murray and Roger Federer

I love it when players don't bend over and have fire in their hearts. This Djokovic guy is good, he talks the talk and walks the walk Roger finished last year on a high buts ince he got pimp slapped by Novak in Melbourne all those ballerina tricks no longer fool people.

Re: Djokovic on Andy Murray and Roger Federer

So what Djokovic is saying is that the man who won 12 GS in the last 5 years can't win another 3 in the next 5 just because he (Djokovic) is around? Wow ... talk about EGO.

No, talk about a great self confidence.

Re: Djokovic on Andy Murray and Roger Federer

Has a player ever been that overconfident and arrogant after just one slam? Can't remember.

You can sound confident without coming off as a complete douche. In this case, the Djoke can learn from Andy. He can build himself up without putting other players down. A true champion.

Re: Djokovic on Andy Murray and Roger Federer

Don't worry folks, Novak is no one slam wonder. With all that self belief, there is no way he is going to end up with only one slam.

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)

Re: Djokovic on Andy Murray and Roger Federer

This is a joke, another tabloid on line magazine. Check out their other stories, pure trash. I wish Novak was a bad ass as some people here try to portray him .

Is this true? Can they really publish that stuff quoting Djokovic without him saying anything like that
