Default Who is the worst matchup for Djokovic?

I don't think there is a thread like this around here... so who is it in your opinion?

In my opinion is Federer... prime Federer or not, prime Djokovic or not, Federer always seems to trouble Djokovic. Even though he only leads the h2h by 1 Federer obviously is the toughest opponent for Djokovic imo. I don't know if it's just a mental thing or not but when Djokovic plays against Federer it's never a gimme for the serb. I'm more nervous when he plays Federer than i am when he plays Nadal tbh

Another option would (maybe) surprisingly... Isner. Even though Djokovic is well known as one of the best in the game when it comes to ROS, he usually struggles against Big John. The h2h is 5-2 in Nole's favour but he needed 5 sets to win in Belgrade on clay, lost a set in Paris m1000 and we all know how tough it was for him to defeat Isner in Indian Wells

Roddick was another player who challenged Djokovic more than he should have but i wouldn't call him a bad matchup as prime Djokovic obviously >> prime Roddick

Opinions?

Has to be Federer.

Similar losing H2H with both Nadal and Federer, but Nadal is a vastly greater player than Roger so Federer must be the worse match up for him

Federer and Roddick in my opinion, but Andy faced Nole 2.0 only once iirc.

Default Re: Who is the worst matchup for Djokovic?

I wouldn´t say Federer and Djokovic are neither a good nor a bad match-up for each other. More often than not both play very good tennis and it´s just a small difference between winner and loser.

Isner´s kick serve troubles Djokovic but IW 2012 and Cincinatti 2013 weren´t the most important tournaments to Djokovic.

I´d say Murray maybe, he really annoyed Djokovic with his game at US Open 2012 and Wimbledon 2013 especially.

Federer has a lot of variety, Novak likes to get into a comfortable rhythm during rallies, when he has to guess what's coming next he doesn't like that.
