Default Djokovic and defending titles...

He's not even as good as horrible Rafa who only defends on clay (Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Rome, and the FO).

Djokovic only has defended two events EVER (2009 and 2010 Beijing and 2009-2011 Dubai).

Do I think he'll defend ANY of his 2011 events in 2012, YES, mainly because he won 10 events and odds are he's not going to lose ALL 10 of them in 2012.

NO WAY he defends all 10 of his events, I'm going to break them down one-by-one and say which ones I think he defends and which ones he doesn't...

Australian Open: He does NOT defend.

Dubai: He DOES defend.

Indian Wells: He DOES defend.

Miami: He does NOT defend.

Belgrade: He DOES defend.

Madrid: He DOES defend.

Rome: He does NOT defend.

Wimbledon: He does NOT defend.

Montreal/Toronto: He does NOT defend.

U.S. Open: He DOES defend.

So there you have it, he defends half of his titles and maybe wins another 1-3 titles that he didn't win in 2011 (i.e. French Open, Cincinnati, Asian events, Basel, Paris, and WTF).

He'll be good until RG and then will fade away.

Maybe with a 2-year ranking system
Otherwise he'll need more than one slam to be #1... it's not the WTA after all.

(You could still be correct, but he'd have to win the French Open too, which is possible but I wouldn't place money on it until I saw his clay form next year...)

Default Re: Djokovic and defending titles...

I imagine he'll be looking to manage his schedule better, after the problems at the end of last year. Perhaps play Madrid, and pull out of Rome? Ditto Canada>Cinci.

I dont know, cant generalize it. Maybe we dont like arrogant pricks. See i am neither a Fed/Nole hater nor a blind supporter of my favourite player.

There is support for all the players here but its just that MTF gets the more dedicated ones

I thought he said he would win AO and Rafa has also shitload of points to defend too

He'll hardly defend any of them, which is good for both the sport and the players below him.
