, that Nole could only get motivated playing against Nadal or Federer?

Sounds like a real problem if so.

Djokovic never hired Becker to cheer for him against anyone other than the Big 4. It seems to me that he has much more trouble against underdogs than the Big 4 these days.

Thoughts?

yeah he needs a weapon to finish the underdogs.

Nole grow up in his career being in the shadow of Federer and Nadal. They are the ones he want to beat.

Agreed. He didn't show the same amount of fight that he showed against Fed in Wimbledon.

Let's be honest here, Wawrinka played quite a bit better than Fed did last year. Motivation, even if it was an issue today, which I doubt, only goes so far.

Shouldn't it be Becker job to get him motivated for other players?

Djokovic needs to get rid of Becker if he ever wants to win RG.

Wawrinka is a harder matchup for Djokovic than either Nadal or Federer.

Nishikori is like a younger Djokovic with a bit more touch.

The motivation factor is being overplayed here.
