A question for all the Djokovic h8ers

What are your reasons for hatin' on the Djoker?

He has a lot of talent and plenty of variety in his game, which usually makes him pretty entertaining to watch.

He's still a very young dude, which explains why he hasn't conducted himself in the best posible way at times. However, to me it looks like he is learning pretty fast.

What will it take for you to stop hating on Nole?

While he plays the way he plays this year and keeping his mouth shut I am starting to be warmer to him.

And you're right, his game is interesting to watch when he's on, but it nohow interfere with a beautiful feeling of hatred.

Re: A question for all the Djokovic h8ers

I only hate Djokovic because he won a slam before Murray, because he was ranked ahead of Murray, and because he usually beat Murray.
Only the first reason is still valid, so I only hate him one-third as much!

When Murray wins a slam I will probably stop hating Djokovic altogether, because he's actually quite a nice guy.

This kind of honesty is rarely seen here. Congrats!

Re: A question for all the Djokovic h8ers

Well compared to most on here I'm a Djokovic <3er but I'm not sure he has that much variety in his game.

Seems a bit all serve to me.

Re: A question for all the Djokovic h8ers

I quite like Nole, i just find his incredibly boring to watch. The ball toss on his serve reminds me of a woman playing.

Re: A question for all the Djokovic h8ers

On MTF, you only need to worry when your favorite player doesn't have haters because it means that he's losing a whole lot more than he's winning.

Re: A question for all the Djokovic h8ers

I did not like him when made the top. I found him too overconfident and bragging and the impersonations a bit too much. But as I said elsewhere, when he told his own fans in Vienna to behave, things started to change. Besides, I often develop soft spots for players in periods when they are struggling. Since his heroic, but unrewarded clay-season this year, he has grown on me more and more.

BTW: I don't hate any players, I just refrain from watching those I don't like. An occasional quip must be allowed though.

No but obviously some think he's responsible for everything his family says.

I don't know what the hates all about. He seems like a nice guy. Always gracious in defeat. He seems to be lacking in confidence a bit. He had a bit of a return to form during the clay season but it's like Nadal just beat it all out of him again.
