What do you think, it is his opinion only, but what do you think? Is he at the moment best sportsman/athlete in the world?

Well I'd say he's up there. The best? Thats an impossible statement to make really. Very difficult (impossible really) to compare top athletes in different sports.

I'd say Messi is the best sportsman on the planet ATM. Just opinion though

He is a hero to Serbia, he has been for a very long time since he first burst into the top 10, this guy is a great example and sportsman for Serbia and his loving dear fans.:)

Tough to say. Had he been dominant after the US Open last year, certainly a much better case could be made like with Federer 2004-2007. Of course he is up there, but the end of 2011 kind of put a rather annoying blemish to his historic season. Of course he has continued to dominate at the slams, but the consistency even at the smaller events is needed IMO.

Yes.

Tennis is my fav sport so the best tennis player is the best sportsman in the world.

Nole won DC, while Messi doesn't perform for Argentina much, Bolt is in kind of a slump, the F1 guys aren't impressive, the box dude and his bro are boring....so yeah, even from an objective point of view he is the man.

One better sportswoman though - Esther Vergeer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esther_Vergeer

We don't know exactly in what sense he mentioned it though. :shrug:

He is easily the best sportsman in the world at the moment. He proved on Sunday he is a phenomenal athlete and a great ambassador for our sport.

Troicki: Nole is a gentle and caring lover.

Seriously though- he is probably right. But the Olympics are just around the corner ...

From what I hear, the AO finals were $hit tennis.

Are you telling me that a guy who plays $hit tennis is the greatest athlete in the world?

I think this comes down to picking maybe between Djokovic, Messi, Vettel and Bolt.

Out of these two, Djokovic and Messi have the strongest cases at this point in time. I await with great anticipation Bolt's ventures at the Olympic Games.

Novak Djokovic is currently the best tennis player in the World. That's it.
How do you argue that Djokovic is better than Messi or vice verse? It's impossible.

The 6 hours long Austrailian Open match was fantastic. Unbelieveable. Nadal was hitting returns averaging 72MPH in the 1st set and averaging 75MPH in the 5th set. That's how hard he was playing, even faster at the end than the beginning. Neither player even took a bathroom break, let alone called for a medical break.

Novak brings so much more to tennis than just pure skill. He brings more personality, intelligence and humor to the game than any other player in the history of tennis.

Ever notice how the entire grand slam audience shifts to attention and just seems primed to LAUGH when Novak makes his acceptance speech? Let's face it - the other top players speeches are boring compared to Novak and the audience reflects that.

When you listen to Novak's indepth and fluent (English) coverage of the questions he is asked; sorry but Rafa just sounds like a noob when it comes to Novak and Federer isn't much better.

Yes Novak is the greatest tennis player and athelete in the world right now. He is definitely raising the level of the game, in every way and he will be unforgettable in the future.

He is a great sportsmen but, he just survived two 5 setters, was very close to defeat and now has a 7 match unbeaten streak:rolleyes:.

It's not like he is lightyears in front of his contemporaries!

You heard wrong. I wouldn't spend too much time listening to some of the muppets on here because the AO final was one one the best tennis matches I have seen in a while and there isn't another sportsman in the world that I would place above Novak at the moment. :worship:
