Re: Novak Djokovic: It's time for another Grand Slam

if he's truly got it together, then this year we might have an exciting AO.

Fed, Nadal Murray, Soda, Kolya and Djokovic seem to be on top of their games.

Re: Novak Djokovic: It's time for another Grand Slam

Ajde, Pretzel Man.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Novak Djokovic: It's time for another Grand Slam

So funny people talk as if he is saying something crazy, the dude was just at the final of the US open, beating Roger in a thriller.

i would never doubt Djokovic is able to win a GS at anytime specially on a Hardcourt.

I think its funny because you can't always depend on a troiki choke @ slams or hit n' hope.
Sometimes you have to take destiny into your own hands and make something from nothing. He folded like a cheap tent in the final after all his good fortune of playing fish n' chips in a QF of a slam.

The law of nature,only the strong survive.

Re: Novak Djokovic: It's time for another Grand Slam

No time like the present, Nole. It's funny, after AO '08 some people on here were predicting a Nole golden slam.

Yet here we are 3 years later.

Re: Novak Djokovic: It's time for another Grand Slam

I'm not sure who it was that predicted a Nole golden slam. Clearly they hadn't been paying much attention to the fedal phenom over the last few years

Re: Novak Djokovic: It's time for another Grand Slam

I wouldn't be surprised if Nole had at least one of each slam when he ends his career.

Quite possible with his type of game.

What's he suppose to say when he is interviewed? I don't think I will ever win any tournament, I don't even know why I try?

For 2 sets, maybe.He should have done better its his best slam in terms of consistency,had h2h advantage in HC matches going in.
He could cause problems in AO but I can't make that assessment prior,will need to see his form in the early rounds.

Re: Novak Djokovic: It's time for another Grand Slam

Sure, Novak always has a chance. He's been the 3rd most consistent player on the tour for more than 3 years. Probably better if he doesn't have to go through both Nadal and Fed. I still don't understand why he served so well 2007-middle of 08 and has been struggling with it ever since. A tall, strong guy like him should have a better serve.
