Why is nobody excited about Djokovic?

I'm not takin' anything away from Murray, cos that guy had an awesome week and he's played some matches which show he really has the potential to be top-10

But I just don't understand, why there is so much hype for Murray and none at all for Novak Djokovic? He's also only 18, and almost exactly the same age as Murray and is in fact presently ranked higher (in the 70s). He's also had some great results and in fact he beat Ancic in the US Open and went a round further than Murray did..so, I'm not saying that the hype around Murray is unjustified, cos I think he's very good, and maybe I'm just a biased Serbian girl (lol ) but I don't understand why ppl don't also talk anything about Djokovic?

Rafa Nadal

Janko Tipsarevic
Novak Djokovic

Re: Why is nobody excited about Djokovic?

Don't worry about Djokovic not getting any hype, there is plenty of talk about Djokovic here, it's just not hysterical.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

There's plenty of talk. We just don't saturate GM with it.

Come join us in the Djokovic forum and you will get your fill.


Plus there's nothing to talk about ... he hasn't been playing lately and he had to retire from his qualifying match today so we're a little bummed. We don't know what the injury is though

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Right, as always. Come back to the Djokovic forum, dear, and you'll see us hyping him decently!

And not to be a downer, but Murray is ranked above Nole now. Novak is only at 81 last time I checked.

Both guys will have good careers ahead of them definitely, but during Novak's lengthy vacation after the USO, Murray has caught up

Because the media wants him to be Henman needed an heir.

I think Novak does deserve to be talked about as much as Murray or Monfils (note, I did not say MORE, I said as much as).

Re: Why is nobody excited about Djokovic?

Murray has more "trolls" here starting daft threads about him. I think Novak is a much better prospect in the long term - I like him a lot and enjoyed watching him at Wimbledon this year - must stop by his Forum some time soon myself.
