Re: Djokovic pulls out of Queen's Club tournament

He's played more matches this year than anybody. If he wants to miss a 250 (albeit the most prestigious one) I say go ahead and rest up for Wimbledon!

I support Andy Murray!

He didn't play before the AO aswell. A strategy that worked.

Oh boy he just lost at RG and he is already hurting his chances at Wimbledon not playing on grass earlier. Djokovic is in deep deep shit.

Re: Djokovic pulls out of Queen's Club tournament

Well. Murray is not playing either. I am sure if Federer loses, he won't play in Halle or he might. We will see.

Re: Djokovic pulls out of Queen's Club tournament

he needs to recover mentally, not physically. nole lost the streak, the chance to be no.1 and to win roland garros for the first time in his career. he'd better rest for a week and then prepare for Wimbledon.

Re: Djokovic pulls out of Queen's Club tournament

Fed should skip Halle. The rested Soderling needs his 4th title of the year. And another useless one

Well technically true, but he did play Hopman Cup and looked in brilliant form there

Re: Djokovic pulls out of Queen's Club tournament

Hm, he is 40 pts behind behind Rafito, would be a shame to miss that opportunity in Queens..

Re: Djokovic pulls out of Queen's Club tournament

That was quick

Good call though - if Fed continues playing like this Nole doesn't stand a chance of winning Wimbledon anyways

Re: Djokovic pulls out of Queen's Club tournament

Why not? After this streak he has the freedom of choice.

Re: Djokovic pulls out of Queen's Club tournament

As someone said above, he should recover mentally...Furthermore, if he intends to go far in upcoming tournaments, he should skip as many Mickey Mouse tournaments as possible...
