Default Djokovic going back to "2010 mode"?

Just wondering. He can't win a title on last 6 tournaments.

If Rafa is healthy I think he could beat him on USO. Del Potro and Muzza have a good chance too.

Nole 2.0 is done. We need Nole 3.0 now.

I still don't get it. So many people here seem genuinely surprised that Nole's 2011(till October) form did not continue.
Did you guys really expect him to repeat 2011?

Djokovic has never played as well on grass pre-2011 than he did this year. Djokovic of 2012 shits on Djokovic of 2009 and 2010. He will win massive portion of his Nadal-matches off clay, I'm sure of that.

Knee-jerk reaction to a good but not great (by his standards grasscourt season). Reassess after USO.

Some people really thought that dominating like Fed did was easy.

He was beaten by a better grass player, simple as that.

I have no doubt that he will be in the finals of the USO.

He won a fucking GS this year

Think he'll be happy with his year even if he does lose USO.

And check Djokovic' runs in 2011. Final set TB against Nadal in Miami, a set and a break behind Bellucci in Madrid, Murray serving for the match in Rome, Tsonga serving for the 1st set in Wimby and a very shaky Wimby overall and of course twice being a couple of cm away of losing to Fed in USO (return + Fed's FH hitting the tapein the following point). Even in his incredible year there was so much close calls in it he was never going to repeat that, even though he's still very close to the player he was last year.

Technically true but that's only because Novak and Andy didn't face each other in 2010.

And in 2009 and 2008 Murray won 3 of their 4 matches.

at the knee-jerk. Djokovic didn't have a freaking serve from AO to Wimby 2010 and he was better than in this year? SMH

Default Re: Djokovic going back to "2010 mode"?

Nothing special or surprising...unfair to Novak really. What Federer did during 2004-2007 unfairly placed this thought of "anybody who wins should be expected to do the same." Seriously, many placed this expectation on Novak back in 2008, on Del Potro in 2009, on Nadal a few times, and Novak last year. What Federer did during those 4 years was pretty inhumane, and should never be looked at in comparison, because before Federer such consistency throughout the whole year over several years had never really been done except for maybe Borg from 1978-1980 when he won like 9 titles in 78 including 2 slams, 13 in 79 including 2 slams and 9 titles in 80 including 2 slams. Sampras certainly didn't have that type of consecutive consistency. So what Federer did 2004-2007 is a whole other level and shouldn't be used as a benchmark..

Regardless, Novak will be back to show some good form, but you can't expect his 2011 form to continue.

Djokovic wasn't too bad today apart from in the very last game, certaintly better than in 2010. Today Murray was just the better player and won the big points.

You were close to the truth. He's going back to 2010... back in time, to change history.
