Is Djokovic a prophet?

Apparently he is, because he can read Roger's mind.

Djokovic: Federer is shaken after French loss

LONDON (AP) - Novak Djokovic thinks Roger Federer is vulnerable after a lopsided French Open loss and that he is one of several players who could end the Swiss star's five-year reign at Wimbledon.


No. 3-ranked Djokovic beat Federer in the Australian Open semifinals en route to winning his first major title in January.

"Some things are changing. I think he's a little bit shaken with that loss and mentally he has been struggling in the last couple of months," Djokovic said Wednesday. "It's normal to have ups and downs after four years of absolute dominance on the men's tour.

"New names are coming, fresh talented players who believe more they can win against him and I am one of them," Djokovic said. "Suddenly he is worried a little bit."

The 21-year-old Djokovic will not let Sunday's loss to No. 2 Rafael Nadal in the Queen's Club final curb his ambitions at Wimbledon.

He is already relaxing in London, participating Wednesday in publicity event with London mayor Boris Johnson by the River Thames in the shadow of the British Parliament.

"Playing the Queen's final gave me even more motivation to do well at Wimbledon," Djokovic said. "The good thing about the sport now is that people are talking about more than two players. Of course Federer and Nadal still dominate, but coming to Wimbledon as a Grand Slam champion gives me much more reason to believe I can challenge the top two players ... It's a matter of mental ability if you can hold on."

The Serbian player says loosening the grip of Federer and Nadal is advantageous for the sport.

"This year has been really interesting for tennis fans to see," he said. "Roger has been losing more often and you can see some new faces coming up and winning the major titles."

Nadal has lost the last two Wimbledon finals to Federer, but has gained confidence from winning his first grass-court title at Queen's on the weekend.

Djokovic was forced to withdraw during last year's Wimbledon semifinal against Nadal with a bad toe and a bothersome lower back.

"Nadal is very motivated to win the Wimbledon title this year, he's been very close the last two years," Djokovic said. "But I'm one of the players behind intending to make a surprise. I just have to behave normally and be aggressive."

"I think that now and until the end of my career, I can really play with my mind at peace, and no longer hear that I've never won Roland Garros." - Roger Federer

Re: Is Djokovic a prophet?

So if Federer and Djokovic meet at Wimbledon, will anyone really be surprised when Djokovic wins no more than 5 games? The last time Djokovic opened his big mouth, at the 2007 Australian Open, he predicted Federer would "go down". Federer destroyed Djokovic in three sets.

Let's see how this one plays out.

Re: Is Djokovic a prophet?

if u were a classy troll u could be forgiven, but u just have no class whatsoever

at least u didnt contradict yourself in your first post , making this thread worthy of my 2 cents:

yes roger is still the favourite for wimbledon , nadal is 2nd fav and novak is far behind at the moment.

and yes fed is under alot of pressure and it wouldnt be a shock if he fails to win it this year

Re: Is Djokovic a prophet?

Didn't Roddick make similar comments before the Australian Open match against Roger in 2007?

Why do Djokotards always avoid the question and change the subject?

Feel free to make a valid point anytime you want.

No. For all his fault, that's not the kind of things he'd say.
Plus considering the fact that Roger was on a 30 something winning streak, he would have looked quite dumb.

I remember that one well.

Roddick implied that he thought he was "closing the gap" with Federer, after an impressive win over Roger at Kooyong. Roddick proceeded to lose 6-4, 6-0, 6-2.
