Pep, not sure what variety you'd like to see. Nole is a one dimensional player. He can't play on grass (not sure how he won that Wimbledon thingy) ... FH/BH pretty average. thank God, Nole is great at the net. ... smashing, hm ... Nole is da best, I guess that's why he is #1

Okay, Novak Djokovic enters 2013 as the guy to beat.
He's the clear favorite for the AO, and time will tell if he is the one for RG, let's see how Rafa's playing and Federer is always a big question mark.

His 2012 WTF was pretty damn amazing, I think the result in the final could have been different, I think the match was decided in some particular points, but still, the guy was a deserved champion and here it is, as a solid world number one.

He has a tough year ahead, he defends a lot, and his 2 competitors defend in some particular times (Federer defends little points in the final part of the tour, and Murray defends nothing in the clay season and IW).

We don't know what's gonna happen with Nadal, but we know that after Wimb he doesn't defend a single point, so the big question here is "How many points will Rafa get in the first part of the year?" After that, we'd know if he's a contender or not.

Back to Nole. He can EASILY have a 2-slams year, it depends on the other players.
Why I say this? Because Nole has proved the world he can play in a solid level during a whole year, and that's something the other guys should accept.

Considering peak Nole is at 100%, we know Nole won't play below 70% in any match, so, if you are Federer-Murray-Nadal-Whoeverthefuckyouare, you need to play better than "70% Nole", and that's not pretty easy.

I think he'd take the title in Australia, Indian Wells, Miami, MonteCarlo and Rome. I'm pretty confident of Nole taking those.

That's almost unbelievable, 4M1000 and a slam before RG... Then, who knows?

I think he'd be the favorite for RG but I don't see him winning it yet... I even see Federer/Ferrer beating him there.

Wimbledon isn't the best surface for Djokovic, Federer/Murray can take him out with no big problems. I don't see him a the big contender in grass (still, we don't know).

The USO-Series are a 30-30-30% chances for the actual top 3. (except, probably Cincy where Federer has a 50% of the title in the bag before playing).

If the season goes as I think so, I think Nole will be too tired for that part of the year, so he won't repeat his 2011-super season.

I think he won't take big titles during the 2nd half, maybe Montreal, or Shanghai.

I see him finishing the year as world number one again, yes.

If he wins RG, he can take the rest of the year off

Default Re: Your expectations for Djokovic in 2013

It will be great if he wins RG. Depends a lot on Nadal's form, but I think Nole can give a very tough fight to even peak Rafa on clay.

We know he'll be consistent at the hard court slams. Good chance of winning both of them. This also depends on the form of Murray, Federer and Del Potro.

Two slams will be good. That'll prove that he has a clear lead over his rivals, unless Murray bags the other two.
I don't see Federer or Nadal winning two slams in 2013. They may win a slam.

I don't think Nole was the decisive #1 in 2012. I think Murray with his first slam + olympics did some damage.
But WTF helped Nole's cause and sealed it for him.
Plus the old order (Federer + Nadal) still snuck in 2 out of 4 slams.

Wimbledon will be his worst slam for the obvious reason mentioned above.

Djokovic will have a better year than 2012. Maybe wins two slams. Three masters1000 at least. Remains #1 unless Murray peaks.

My expectation is a two slam year, although ideally he'd have another three

Other than that, YE #1, maybe WTFs again, multiple 1000s. But more importantly I'd like him to remain the best and most consistent player and show it against the others in the top 10.

Default Re: Your expectations for Djokovic in 2013

djokovic has a golden couple of years to elevate him from a 2nd tier of greatness to the 1st tier.

Roger is getting older and I believe will have a worse 2013 than 2012 and a worse 2014 than 2013 and so on. nadal is coming back from a 6 month hiatus and is entering his declining phase.

With only murray, so far, to challenge djokovic he will have a great chance of grabbing a few more slams as the new generation looks pretty weak.

As for next year I see djokovic winning 2 slams, most probably AO and USO. RG will be difficult but not impossible.

djokovic will also win 2/3 masters 1000.
