Re: Honest assessment of Novak's year by his fans
yeah i really would say this is a bad year for novak in terms of his form dropping so much. His entire game (forehand, backhand and serve) has dropped so much. if you just look at where he is hitting the ball and the amount of pace in 2011 vs 2012 it is horrible. He was playing perfect tennis in 2011 very neutral with offensive mindset and ridiculous defense when needed. This year he has been very defensive and conservative. He's grinding out there. pre 2011 he took a lot more risks and was more offensive, plus it was a little more fun to watch.
