Djokovic hasn't won a title since May

Not to say he sucks, but it seems to me that he can beat the mugs easily but when it comes to the big boys, he can't get it done.

Since he won Rome, he's lost four times to Nadal, twice to Murray, and just in the semis vs. Federer.

Is he a notch below?

Re: Djokovic hasn't won a title since May

He went on to lose to Murray though, so no title there. Plus he couldn't back it up in Beijing. I think Djokovic will up his game for the next two Masters events though, going deep in both and probably winning one.

Re: Djokovic hasn't won a title since May

Like others from the top he could play in smaller tournaments and win title or two but (good for mentioning may) in may they made a decision - shedule for Novak till the end of year is: G. Slams, masters and Bangkok.

As for no titles since may, well he is not last years Novak. Hope he will be soon.

Re: Djokovic hasn't won a title since May

You could say the same thing about Federer until today.

In short, your theory is just to put Nadal once again at the very top of your own pedestal.

Re: Djokovic hasn't won a title since May

This resembles those Nadal hasn't won a title since 7 months type of thing. Long gone are those days Is it burn out? Is it his playing style. Is he being greedy playing too many tournaments?

Perhaps he has less of the extra factors but his mental strength has seen him ascend and make more of his talent than Murray thus far, who is still without a major. Right now he is probably the 4th best player in the world but i expect him to come out with fire in his belly in the upcoming TMS events.

Re: Djokovic hasn't won a title since May

Didn't we have a tread in March this year (or something like that) saying Nadal didn't win a title since July 2007? That got Nadal really mad it seems. He went ballistic with the racket
