Nole hires a new fitness coach!

Is this the final key for Nole's ascendency to the #1 position? It seems to me that whenever he has lost to Nadal or Federror, (Roddick - AO) in the past, it was because of his own lack of conditioning. Lets see what the future brings! Hopefully he does not have congenital breathing problems because of his previous surgery, and that he can address his problems with new training.

http://www.novakdjokovic.rs/index.php?jezik=2#

"Starting from the tournament in Rome, Novak’s team will have a new member - Gebhardt, who was coach of Thomas Muster, former world no.1, and holder of 44 ATP titles.

Novak hired Gebhardt as his fitness coach. They started working together after Nole lost to Nadal in Monte Carlo Masters finals last week.

"Fitness is what I need in the following period. I will play three tournaments in a row before Roland Garros, and we all know that transition from clay to grass is very short" - said Novak.

The best Serbian tennis player is the defending champion in Rome. The tournament starts tomorrow. Then he plays in Belgrade, Madrid and Paris at Roland Garros which starts on May, 25.

"I’m always trying to improve myself in every aspect, to become a better player. I felt that I can’t improve anymore with members of my team, and decided to change something" - added world no.3.

Novak said that the new coach had brought new programme, new system and many innovations.

"Of course, we haven’t changed everything, that would be risky" - concluded Nole."

Novak Djokovic nº1!

Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"

Re: Nole hires a new fitness coach!

Hellooooooooooooooooooo

That horse that had his news, he has bolted, about a week ago.

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: Nole hires a new fitness coach!

An Indian Wells loss was a fitness issue too. Kind of like "unfit" Federer eating humble pie and shittin' mononucleosis in Australia.

Re: Nole hires a new fitness coach!

Smartest thing Novak has done in a while. He is behind Nadal, Federer, Murray, and even Roddick in terms of fitness....and it has hurt him in many matches over his young career already. Better late than never.

Re: Nole hires a new fitness coach!

Djoko is not genetically gifted like Rafa,he is deluding himself if he thinks he is going to win RG...five sets with Rafa on clay is a tall order ask Roger.That topspin is the killer,Rafa wears out his opponents with that topspin and as weak as we know Joko he wont make it.
Anyway no.4 Muzza is going to be no.3 on monday bwahahaha!

Re: Nole hires a new fitness coach!

Dfaker's program for success:
  • train in the Serbian mountains
  • wear silly blue shoes
  • brag about your unproven prowess
  • call for medical timeouts when out of breath
  • attempt to trash opponents who have obliterated you

He needs a whole lot more than a fitness coach. Perhaps soon he'll be back to throwing pizzas at a third rate Serbian ski resort.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

HA! Unproven prowess? Is that any way to talk about a grand slam champion and a kid who knocks down several masters titles per year? Is that any way to talk about the only guy that pushes Nadal on clay, and can beat him on the HC anyday? How green with envy we are!

Not to mention grass. Would have won Wimbledon 07 semi final if not injured, and should have won queens last year.

Forget F/O, I reckon Djokvic will beat Nadal at wimbledon this year.
