Default What's going on with Djokovic's serve motion ?

He just can't hit a decent serve these days. It's painful to watch at times, he's like a kid on his first tennis lessons.

Give him time with the serve, you can't expect the change on it to be immediate...

His serve is affecting his game and his mind,even though it's not that important on clay,still worrying if you know you can rely on it to get some free points.Todd fucking Martin should give back the money he earned from Nole

I think you are right about the serve affecting evrey aspect of his game. He looked so unsure and stress when he had to hit a 2nd serve, mumbuling to his camp. That can't be good for the confidence.
But I guess you saw the slow motion replay near the end of the first set. The arm wiht which he is throughing the ball stays in a vertical possition for too much time. That seems to be such a basic mistake.

Nothing. Serving as well as ever. It's better than 2 years ago if you ask me. He's just constantly being outplayed that is all =(

He needs time to recover from Todd Martin whose coaching should carry a warning:

Warning: Todd Martin can seriously damage your tennis.

Default Re: What's going on with Djokovic's serve motion ?

He used to have a good serve. Not great as Sampras or Karlovic, but good enough to be top player, to win a slam.He was just a little bit worse on serve department than Fed. He won lot of cheap points from it, saved lot of breakpoints. But he forgot one basic thing : if it is not broken, dont fix it ! Obviously he wanted even better serve and now he almost has a Volandri-serve. Except he makes more double faults than Volandri. It is painful to watch.
He cant be top guy and contender for slams with that serve. He has to get back his old faithful one.His vulnerability on serve affects his whole game. If he cant fix his serve, he is out of top 10 next year.

He had a good serve in 2007 for example.

I remember Roland Garros 2007, where he was totally exhausted and won the matches against Verdasco and Andreev thanks to great serve.

btw

Someone should create a thread about when Djokovic should retire.

Djokovic retire? I'm glad he's just 22.

His service is very bad atm and he needs to sort in out asap.
Winning or not, Djokovic is a character that makes tennis more interessting to watch

And he will bounce back i'm sure, he lost a SF against Verdasco(who played a fantastic match) and people draw conclusions too early.
We can discuss this after Roland Garros, his performance there wil be very important.

I was at that match in Roland Garros against Andreev and thought Novak was developing a great serve with a lot of power having seen it close up.

I'm really intrigued to hear about these problems now. Can anyone explain what the technical problem is with his serve? I'm interested in that kind of stuff.

there's no direct technical problem.......his present sufferings basically sprung from his increasing stamina worries and subsequent loss of focus.......

he cannot stay focused and strong for weeks together any longer.......tiredness and breathing issues creep in when playing under sun especially.......that's when his game starts failing.......

it's true that he has lost some of the mechanics in his forehand and serve but the root cause for it is his worrying and ever increasing stamina problems.......he is not saying it out because he is already very misunderstood and may not want to sound like an excuse maker.......one can easily see that djokovic starts breathing heavily all of a sudden very often these days.......
