How many titles will Djokovic defend in 2012?

After a stellar half season, Djokovic has a lot of points to defend. Based on his defending titles history, it is time to get worried if you are a Nole fan and a good time to start making excuses if you are a Noletard.

So how many titles do you think he will be able to defend?

I'll go with 4-5 but 2-3 was my initial inclination.

Re: How many titles will Djokovic defend in 2012?

I'm not worried, I'm not making excuses and I love Nole.

Nobody expects Nole to repeat this stellar season (if you want to call it half season, even better, who has had a better half-season, then? ).

I have been a Nole fan for over 6 years, so this year came as an unexpected and delicious surprise. I would be a Nole fan even if he had won nothing this year. And I will be a Nole fan next year even if he wins nothing.

Having said that, I'll be really happy if he doesn't defend any titles at all, but wins Roland Garros and the Olympic Gold.

Re: How many titles will Djokovic defend in 2012?

I think he has a good shot to defend all the slow/medium HC events, that's his best surface IMO

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Interesting such threads are started by haters such as yourself.

Anyways, I'd say most of them, but the key one to mind which he will not defend is the Australian Open.

Re: How many titles will Djokovic defend in 2012?

As long as he gets RG, I don't care how many he defends

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Re: How many titles will Djokovic defend in 2012?

If he continues playing like he did during the indoors season I'll go with 0.
Realistically, Nole might defend AO, IW/Miami(not both), maybe Rome and Montreal.
He definitely won't win at Wimbledon again, US Open title defense is also very doubtful.

None. He will retire for his fans.

Re: How many titles will Djokovic defend in 2012?

Might defend AO, Dubai, and IW...probably not Miami. Might take Monte Carlo, defend Rome, RG. Don't think so for Madrid, Wimby, Toronto. Might finally win Cincy. Don't think so for US Open.

Re: How many titles will Djokovic defend in 2012?

He will only defend one of his 3 slams. One of the hc slams.

HC slam(either AO or USO but not both)
Dubai and Serbian open.
2 masters series.

5 titles.
