Is it possible that this can not be sorted out with some kind of a special shoe?
I don't think so. The problem is his footwork not his shoes. Other players don't struggle in the same way.
right, and with that movement he managed to win Wimbledon. uh, oh, yeah, he was in some semis of W too. just atrocious
. go, watch some tennis before you post
Exactly. Winning wimbledon with "atrocious" movement no less. I think he needs a dictionary. Maybe he thinks Djoker should have to play the qualifiers at wimbledon next year. More great commentary at MTF !
Not in absolute terms but relative to the rest of his game yes, his footwork on grass is very bad. Maybe atrocious was a slight exaggeration, but only slight. Is there any other top player who slips even half as much? It's to his credit if he managed to win Wimbledon despite that.
What I find more interesting is why he has sporadic matches on clay as well where you think he's playing on ice. At least grass on grass it's somewhat consistent.
