Default I think it's time for people to admit the reason they don't think Novak Djokovic.....

.....is one of, if not the greatest player to play on hardcourts, is because they don't like him.

No one likes this guy? Why? Too cool for school? So what?

I know there are those that do like him, ofcourse, but there's never a majority of people in one place that do. Never seen him get support, anywhere other than in Serbia for the Davis Cup.

Djokovic is a great player and a great guy. I go to Indian Wells every year, and he always seems to have a lot of crowd support there. I hear more negative comments about Nadal there than I do Djokovic.

He's top 3 on hardcourts....

I'd only put Fed & Sampras above him....

Djokovic has a pretty nice support at Asian swing.
People don't like him because of Fakervic days, I think.

He's a great hardcourt player, but you're right. Most people don't like him. He has plenty of Fedtard love here, why they whinging?

No. Djokovic seems to not have the same avid fanbase and I don't buy all the crap about achievements and been around less long at the top etc.

I understand Nadal has a low IQ and is unassuming so people find him endearing and I understand Roger is sophisticated, swarve, down-to-earth and relatable with his ability to speak several different languages.... but why does everyone treat Djokovic like the guy that's too cool for school? The slick skiier with too much charisma, confidence and swagger? If he is these things, so what? Why can't the MASSES still take to him?

Don't like his grinding anti-tennis game. The best aspects of his game do not involve the racket or the ball.

Awful player to watch. I do accept though, that some people like to watch all-out-defence.

I am just concerned about the future of the game.

Default Re: I think it's time for people to admit the reason they don't think Novak Djokovic.

He hasnt won enough, tennis is also big part supported by numbers, he is in AO goat discussion, but overall HC? how many HC slams does the Djoker hold in his portfolio? Surely there are some guys with a little more of them..

There were people rating aggasi ahead of him only a few weeks ago.... yeah, or was it a week ago... and this was on the superficial basis he hasn't done a career slam. Aggasi didn;t have the greatest claycourter ever in his way and Novak was a non-brain fart away from winning it this year, without that touch of the net.

I wonder, do we undervalue player's because of their appeal to us as people? Youzhny gets similar treatment, he's a headcase he isn't all that, del potro, he's a boring frankentein, he isn't all that either.

Being likeable and being talented. Let's separate the both.

Federer and Nadal have a duopoly on tennis fans, it's tough to make it a proper triopoly fanbase-wise.
