Oh,and ANA!!
Yes, and the guy on the far left is Andi's coach, Peter Popovic. He seems like a good friend of Nole as well.

And then add British and Murray,and you have recipe for Nole-ignoring.

Frankly, I don't trust Novak fans too much after that yoda multi Tutsi dishonoured my bet and chico tried to cheat claybot but I trust you'll keep your word. This thread has run its course then. Good.

Ha, never even saw that picture, what a joke...
At the time people were probably annoyed that Andy was put on it instead of Nole but in hindsight the whole thing is kind of ironic, with Nole having more titles this year than anyone on the poster( considering the campaign is aimed at the coming year, 2011 rather than a general overview

Yeah, only Fedal/American/British/French players are important for them. I admit Fedal has been a cash cow and has done a lot for the sport, but ATP should've known it couldn't last forever and needed to develop another one or a multi dimensional rivalry. It's not mutually exclusive. The more, the better.

I bet besides Nole fans, the tennis world (especially ATP) thoroughly wanted Andy to win the AO final.

TV Rights and sports industry Serbia is a little country.

I Think it's very risky that the ATP are willing to put the futures of tennis in the hands of 2 players.

I know it's all business move after all and don't blame them for it entirely either. Still they shouldn't treat one of their top dogs like the way they have done to Nole, if they're smart enough. Probably Serbia isn't a desirable country though, Nole himself has the potential to become a world wide star and won't go away anytime soon, then it's their charge how utilize what they have.

To me, they seemed to want him to take the role of the villain which Nole refused to be, so just gave up trying in other ways. Let's see how they deal with the new situations from now on.

Sponsor's role in this matter cannot be overlooked.

That's true. Many peole don't want to accept the partycrasher to the federer-nadal duopoly. But as everything once Nole begins to win big titles regularly he will be regarded as the greatest thing since slice bread. Gloryhunters.



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
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"

Re: pictures of novak,the most handsome tennis player ever,number 2!

I don't know why are u surprised by that logic. It's nothing new.
But....it will be funny with Dimitrov, Berankis, Dolgopolov even Raonic, all coming from relatively small countries (if we talk about marketing)

Never complain and never explain!!!!

Speak softly and carry a big stick !

[QUOTE=mlle mila;10918248] TV Rights and sports industry Serbia is a little country.
Serbia is two time larger than Switzerland.
If it was Murray in Nole s shoes right now, it would be a media teror all over the place, but when it comes guy from south EAST Europe it is a different story. But I expected that, so no suprise there.
And all this serbian domination is Nadal and Federer s fault, they created a tennis monster known as Novak Djokovic.

Do you mean gear sponsors or management companies? If the former, Adidas (till '09) & Head/Wilson are as rich as one can get. As for the latter, it can be a factor that he's not from a big one like IMG or something like that.

Yeah, ironically majority of up and comers are from Eastern Europe, where ATP don't seem to appreciate the value of the market or even the players.

I guess Raonic is a bit different case though. Having a top Canadian player actually looks good. They have one of the biggest tournaments on the calendar, the attendance records are quite remarkable and Tennis Canada appears to be putting big efforts in developing their players.

Well if they don t appreciate the market here, BIG MISTAKE. Because everything here is much more expensive, and people sill buying all kind of shits imported from west.
