It's merely due to the guy's great talent and young age that he's still managed to make it back to the top-10 - a fact I'm very happy about.
You do not want to know how many players NEVER managed to make it back after an injury like he suffered.

Del Potro's injury isn't comparable to Soderling's sickness. Soderling had mono which is a kissing disease.

You act as if he was born with that virus infection. Chances are he could have prevented it, but he didn't. With this rational, people would say, "Federer is quite unlucky, if he didn't have mono, he'd have more slams by now".

Your ignorance is staggering.
So you actually blame Söderling for getting mono? An infection that hits a majority of people in fact, the only difference being how individuals' bodies manage to cope with the effects of it, which are HUGE?

How about googling 'Ancic, Mario', just for starters?

No, your ignorance is staggering.

There have been a series of unlucky events for each and every single player out there in the ATP.

Why single out Soderling or Del Potro when all players have had unlucky situations?

Do you think if these events had not occurred to Soderling or Del Potro, that they'd be guaranteed slams?

Re: How much luck has to do with Nole's success?

Hard to tell, but really this has nothing to do with Novak, luck is part of everything, in private life, in bussiness in sport, even in slam final there is always some luck for either one or another party. So this is not only about Nole, everybody had some luck, we can the same said about Roger or Rafa in past- luck decides many times many matches either between them or other matches, Roger had MP in few matches he lost so really if he would be luckier who knows. So luck is normal thing nothing special only for tennis.

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.

Re: How much luck has to do with Nole's success?

I had been saying for several years that Nole deserved a brake, both in general and against Nadal in particular, after so many narrow loses.

It seems Nole took me at my word... and then just kept on winning.

You have to be good to be lucky.

What a stupid thread.

All this talk of "being a couple of points away on so many occasions," dropping behind and then coming back to win it - you could apply that to any player and call them 'lucky.'

The only reason we are talking about Djokovic is because he's the world number one.

The A++ Tier: Soderling | Raonic | Hewitt | Dolgopolov | Djokovic | Gasquet | Mahut
The A+ Tier: Murray | Kohlschreiber | Nishikori | Tsonga | Goffin | Berdych | Baghdatis | Karlovic | Baker
The A Tier: Del Potro | Youzhny | Ferrer | Tursunov | Malisse | Saville

Luck is when a fat person wins the lottery.

This thread is lucky too, in that it hasn't been removed for trolling.

Novak Djokovic nº1!
The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015 * Indian Wells * Miami
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"
Either you get him or you don't!

Re: How much luck has to do with Nole's success?

no luck, except the return at matchpoint #1 in uso 2011 sf

this was a "all or nothing" suicide shot.

Rather you trolls are lucky not being removed from the genuine thread.

Because if you're lazy not to read at least a couple posts in a thread, you have no right to judge.

Of course this would be understandable for intelligent ppl only, sorry.

Djokovic has balls size of 10 kg watermellons

I don't like Nadal.
