I consider Nole a legend of the game because he actually ate some of the grass of Wimbledon. Not too many greats can claim that.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

I agree. And I don't think looking young = looking 18 or whatever. He looks like he's in his 20's (which he is), which qualifies as 'young', and this, coupled with other aspects of his personality, actually sets him apart from Roger and Nadal. I think his deal with Uniqlo is quite a good example of the kind of market that he can appeal to. Uniqlo is seen as trendy and hip in Asia, and like I said earlier, that's the kind of market that he can attract. The fact that he looks young also helps a lot in that regard.

I kind of feel a bit sorry for Djokovic when he's this bubbly, entertaining and slightly humorous bloke, who possesses a personality that is hard to dislike, and then Rory McIlroy, who is on the whole a pretty boring guy, despite being a very talented golfer, is dwarfing his earnings.

I don't think the reason for this is that golf is much more marketable than tennis.

To me he looks exactly like 25 and no younger than Nadal or Murray who are his direct competitors. It's like saying a Ferrari's sellig point is that it has a four wheels. A Lamborghini also has four wheels so it becomes irrelevant. You can't say he's more marketable than his rivals because he's younger. You can say he's more marketable because of his ranking or his charisma. The general perception to the public is probably that he's actually a bit older since he's been around for so long. It's more like he is age appropriate rather than using it as a stand out marketing strategy.

Nole, Fed and Nadal are multimillionaires. They don't pay our bills. it's irrelevant. I couldn't care less how much money they make.
I wonder who spends more and on what

In all seriousness, is this likely?

I mean I have no doubt he could build on his popularity to have a successful political career. Tons of sports stars have done it - Imran Khan, Manny Pacquiao, etc. I am just wondering if politics is something he is interested in.

The boy has too much money already and personally I don't give a "flying fuck" as Americans would say, about his "endorsement potential" or how much more money he will make. Let him think about that, what's that to me? If anything, I hope that the potential is as small as possible so I won't watch stupid ads. (Although I don't own a tv set at all)

Ideally he will be hated but respected as Lendl used to be.

btw this consumerism went too far anyway, in general.

Just saying, otherwise this topic is sorry for talking about something I have little interest for and even less knowledge.

Never say never, he is an intelligent individual and has shown some affinity for politics (no direct endorsements of political parties or anything like that, mind you), but it is quite unlikely.

Even Safin can become a politician.

This is also a good post. If Djokovic was faking less, I'd respect him more but his bank account would be smaller.

When did I ever say him being young makes him more marketable than his rivals? I don't think he is. Maybe you should read tripwires post, she is better with words than I am.
