The Fall Cometh: Novak Djokovic.

You heard it here first. He's slowly going down in the rankings and losing matches he should win. Although he could return to form, I don't see it happening and he will follow his compatriots Ivanovic and Jankovic down the rankings.

Re: The Fall Cometh: Novak Djokovic.

Well. Novak took the money and changed his racket. Not a lot of people can handle a new racket easily. And Murray has truly passed him. He is young and can come back, with Fed being a factor maybe for the next 2 years. Still, he is going to have trouble with the younger generation.

Faker can't fall much more - it's not like he's in a peak anyway.

Re: The Fall Cometh: Novak Djokovic.

The Serb angle is very eerie.

2007 USO: Novak got to the finals of the USO
2008 AO: Novak won his first slam and Ivanovic and Jankovic took out the William Sisters
2008 French Open: Ivanovic won first slam and got to #1
Later in the year: Jankovic got to #1

After that: totally going backwards and doing much worse

Re: The Fall Cometh: Novak Djokovic.

And just to clarify, I'm not much of a fan, but I also find it pretty sad to see his talent wasted like this. Hopefully he won't slip too far, but I think by year's end he'll be struggling to stay in the top ten.

Personaly I don't see anyones aside from Cilic and Del Potro who can pass him in rankings. I just think that he's going thru a little crisis but he's in great health and can beat anyone on a given day. Nadal is injured and Federer is slower than he was a year ago. And yes, lets not forget that he's only 22 years old. I think his problem is in his head, once he gets everything together he'll be a major threat. With a good draw it can happen in US open

Re: The Fall Cometh: Novak Djokovic.

Cilic won't pass Faker in the rankings, unless Faker turn into an even bigger mug and fall below #20-#30.

Roddick, Tsonga, Simon and Verdasco if they can play to their potential EASILY. Frankly seeing how Haas did here he could and I think it will be Nole getting upset and slipping more so than people passing him. I'm not saying he'll fall out of the top 100 but he'll be a sort of hoverer between ten and twenty.

Re: The Fall Cometh: Novak Djokovic.

He's still 2400 ahead of delpot in the post-wimbledon rankings. The problem is now he only has S/Q/Q/R32 in his last four slams, basically the same as Del Potro. The problem for DelPot is although he has room for improvement at the masters (he missed Canada/Cinci last year), he's about to lose 1k points from kitzbuhel/stuttgart this month, and only has 290 from small tournaments to replace them. He needs to make some masters finals or more slam semis really, pick up some big points, or Djoko is safe.

Re: The Fall Cometh: Novak Djokovic.

At WORST I can see him finishing the year #6 or #7... but he'll get it back sooner or later, he's too talented not to. And he's not exactly a raving head case or particularly detached from reality like his Serbian counterparts.
