Which do you think will affect Novak the worst?

We have seen Murray losing it after losing in grand slam finals and then going for weeks without good wins. Everybody expects Novak to beat Roger and Rafa. this is the first slam he was probably favorite to win from the start. If Roger stops him, will Novak's confidence go back to where it was in 2010 before his match with Roger in US Open?

Which do you think will affect Novak the worst? Losing to Rafa or Roger?

Nole has already lost two major finals. One was in USO 2010, so you can see the results of that loss quite clearly, haha.

Re: Which do you think will affect Novak the worst?

if he follows MTF than threads like this one

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

won't affect him that much. he is clearly mentally stronger than murray and he has expressed many times during his interviews that he is not unbeatable and that he could lose anyday. he is just taking this as far as it will go

Nah. If he loses to Murray, it'd be because of an strategic tank to win his first title as #1 at Wimbledon!

Novak will take a loss stride. He lost the US Open and was rather jovial at the end, even pretending to pocket Rafa's winner's check – when Rafa handed it to him to pose for winners photos. I don't think he'll be affected too much.

He's not Murray. Just like the effects of a loss are different between Roger and Nadal.

Allez!

Re: Which do you think will affect Novak the worst?

Once the streak ends, I don't expect it to bother Djokovic too much. It would surprise me if it did. However, with that said, sooner or later, it's certain that he'll go through his own rough patch during the season, experience losses here and there, much like the others, and things will be pretty much back to normal.

There are times, rare moments, when the greatest of champions fall. Maybe because of a bad day or maybe there's pain within. One thing you can be sure of, is that all the great champions will bounce back again. It may not be today. It may not be tomorrow. But one day, they'll be back again. And they'll be better than ever. Why??? Because that's what great champions do. They survive.

No brainer. Losing to Roger. I think Novak expects to win over Roger but he is more unsure about Nadal. From my personal experience such losses are always worse.

Then of course the prize money for a final spot which I'm sure matters even to Djokovic but also the ranking points. Beating Roger and he is nr1 even if he loses the final and that would comfort him if he loses to Rafa.

If Novak loses to Roger today he might as well retire. Seriously though of course his confidence will decline quite a bit but it'll still be at a good level going into Wimbledon.

Perfect for jinx.


@OP, anyway lose to Roger would be worse for him specially because it is semifinal, I think it wouldn't be record (I'm not sure) and if Rafa wins no 1 for him.

Never ever give up
