Marko is ranked around 900 places lower than Marsland in the junior rankings. :shrug:

Anyway, it's disappointing, but I really hope the experience is benefiting Marko. :)

I find it hard to get too disappointed about a loss for a player so young because their game is still being molded and developed. I'd hate to judge a player's future career by how they played at 16.

when Nole was 17, he had been a junior GS runner up.

Novak apparently said that the youngest of the three is the best (according to ESPN), but it's a bit too early to tell. I wouldn't get too excited about any results in either direction just yet.

We have like 20 open threads dedicated to Djokovic right now. Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

3 Djokovics'! Imagine the Davis Cup lineup 5 years from now :

R1: Djokovic V.....
R2: Djokovic V.....
R3: Djokovic/Djokovic V....
R4: Djokovic V....
R5: Djokovic V....

:eek:

what annoyed me about the young Djoko kid was his cheering for Novak's points last night and making sure he was looking up at the screen to see himself, trained him well

what a family of Ego's

:haha::haha::haha:

I actually heard his hero was the Captain of the U.S.S. Egoprise...Rumor has it, the Djoko-kid's battle cry: "Beam me up, Roggie"

I remember that Nicolas Lapentti many years ago said "My younger brother Giovanni is much more better than me". Time has verified this sentence - it was a total bullshit by Nico.

Safin said the same thing about his sister and she is ranked much higher than him now. Oh wait! That's because he sucks, nevermind. :p

Should have faked an injury after the 2nd set.

Obviously he hasn't learnt anything to be World No. 3.

imagine how he (or anybody else with a younger brother) would've been blasted by his family and the press if he'd gone: "oh, my bro? yeah, i guess he'll be kinda alright http://addis-welt.de/smilie/smilie/verwirrt/129.gif ...he's a total pieface compared to me though, to be honest."

the kid's not even 17 and they're already saying he's better than Djoko, as if he didn't have enough pressure to deal with...
