I'm starting to get sick of it. Djokovic gets to a GS final and then doesn't even bother to show up.

Once the tears have subsided, you may begin to realise that Novak is still in the mix for all slams. He has had yet another good year.

Hope my post helps.

A slam and 3 slam finals without grit or determination and being generous to his rivals AKA best friends. Dayam, this Serb is good.

You can't say he didn't show up on Monday, but he fucked up in the 3rd set and Rafa took back the control of the match.

People are not "free" to express an opinion. Instead, if they choose to express anything, they choose to pay the price. The price is the effect on others and the effect on the person. There is no free lunch in this world.

I get the impression Nole is more focused on his "entertainment" career than his "tennis" career.

I'm probably overreacting. He's had a great year, but he seems to be missing something. Or maybe I'm high.

almost making all the GS finals this year is pretty impressive

Will Nadal's HC serve ala 2010 ever return? Will Nadal's 2008-2010 Grass play ever return?

Same logic for Djokers HC 2011 season. Players evolve...to become better (whether that is from consistency or experience) or slightly worse overall. You're not the same every year.

Nole was under the misconception that his 10% level was enough to beat Murray/Rafa. My guess is that he underestimated by 10%.

Something has been missing this year - uncharacteristic play even compared to last year, let alone 2011.
