Would appreciate some incites folks :wavey:
24.The only difference what I can think about is a psychological one. In 2011 he had nothing to lose. Now he has to defend the number one position at the rankings. The pressure on him is now larger.
Apart of that there are no real differences. At this moment his form is not yet as good as in 2011. But, all the shots that he had in 2011 he potentially still has. And with an age of 25 he is potentially at the peak of his career. It is probably just a matter of time till he plays his best tennis again.
Alex, I more or less agree if he handles the losses without too much drop in confidence, and without going too many matches without a win. But as we saw last year, and I believe as Mr. Djokovic has often said himself, he is a big "confidence" player. When he was winning match after match, and tournament after tournament, he clearly fed off of that confidence, aura, whatever one chooses to call it. And it carried him through a great portion of the year, to #1, and yes, even had to help him in the Australian Open this year.honest to God, there are too many retards on this board. what do you want? do you expect Djokovic to win every match 6:0, 6:0 ... he is winning where it really matters. He is holding W, AO, the USO... who gives a sh!t about Dubai and IW. he got to semis there, good enough. gee
and all of this sh!t about losing 'aura'. are you guys really serious? he was on 60 minutes show last night. he was on Conan and Leno show... he is the hottest thing right now. he is #1 ...
