Top Two's Tactics

Both use strategic MTO's and time violations, both are dishonest, but which style annoys you more, that of Nadal's or Djokovic?

Re: Top Two's Tactics

Murray choking on purpose time and time again just to distract his opponent is a much more annoying and vile strategy imho.
Look at the 3rd set today : Novak was lost, had no serve, yet Andy refused to destroy him, consistently choked and even let him have 3 SP only to win the tb at the end.Disgusting tactic.

Re: Top Two's Tactics

Djokovic at least owns a personality and isn't dumb and doesn't play pathetic mind games under his uncle's orders. Additionally he can speak other languages than serbian.

Re: Top Two's Tactics

both players' 'tactics' are disgusting

the top 2 do everything in their power to bring the whole ATP into disrepute. just when you think the organization cant get any lower, you've got these 2 setting the example

the case of nadal i can understand. he's hypochondriac and uncle toni teached him to cheat in order to win. when it comes to djokovic, it might be a little bit more complicated but i do have a pretty good theory. perhaps the younger generations of serbians are suffering an insecurity complex derived from the balkans war in the early ninenties. perhaps djokovic himself feels that in war everything should be permitted and that -because of the nature of the competition- tennis in his mind can be conceived as war too, he think cheating in tennis is all too valid. that kind of behaviour is obviously that of a person sick in the head but that's what seems to be the case here, sadly. i don't want to encompass the entire country of serbia into this description but needless to say, it does make you wonder.

“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: Top Two's Tactics

Grow up Muzzah Lovah -_- finding more excuses for your man's losses.

Yeah I don't agree with the going over the 30 second rule. But you're not going to lose a match because of that.

Lets not exaggerate.

bitter murraytard just can't accept the reality.

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.

Maybe twisted on my part but I call it 'single minded' 'determined' & a 'win at all costs' mentality.

Not everyone will like it but they are successful. Would I take Murray acting the exact same if it meant slams, hell right I would.

Nole/Nadal are great players, they don't need dishonesty to prevail.

Re: Top Two's Tactics

You gotta understand that they don't do it on purpose as a form of gamesmanship.

It's just a psychological reaction to the circumstances. Some guys keep it in, others have the need to show they're hurting. And they are hurting. You think what they do is easy? But they keep fighting. So get over it already.
