How about Janko, eh?!

Stoked that he's focused - and pumped that he'll get a chance to play his good friend Nole Djokovic on the big stage.

He's such an awesome personality - good guy and edgy as well. I think he's awesome for the sport. Thoughts?

Side note, as New York City was shutting down last Saturday as 'Hurricane Irene' approached - despite most of the city at a standstill, Janko and Women's Top 10 (going into the Quarterfinals too) Sam Stosur greeted adoring fans who came out in the horrible weather to the O Store in Times Square for a rockin' time.

I like Janko too but he gets a fair amount of crap thrown at him on this forum - some of it justified, some not. He retired in the Eastbourne final when he was down 3-5 in the third set and that was indeed classless. However I do like his charisma and his game is beautiful when he is on, particularly his backhand DTL. Wish him the best against Djokovic, and hopefully this time he will go out there with a killing intent even though they are friends.

Hard to like someone that wears sunnies on court.

haha my favorite thing about him is the shades too, he rocks them and so rarely do tennis players wear them. actually having played tennis a lot myself I can say they sort of hurt visability as far as seeing the ball is concerned (ball is not caught as easily by the eyes). but def very cool looking

Q. Talking about wearing the glasses, most athletes who wear contacts have the laser surgery. Is that something that...

JANKO TIPSAREVIC: I tried contacts but it wasn't working for me because my eyes get red within five seconds. I tried to push through that phase, but it didn't work. I'm not a fan of laser eye surgery. I'm gonna keep wearing the glasses.

I like his shades and they make him look cool on court, but him as a person.................highly questionable.

12 seconds of gold thanks. JT is having a crazy good year. One could argue he's improved as much as Djokovic this year (career high improved from >30 to top 15 after US Open).

Not to get too technical, but Oakley's have virtually no image distortion - there are more than 600 patents on Oakleys with special technology that ensure optical superiority. I don't want to post any links on this page, but on Oakley's website, under innovation, you can find more technical info. Plus legendary impact protection.

Also, Janko wears prescription and photochromic (changes tint with light conditions) lenses, so for the record, he has no image distortion.

Poor Janko! I just hope he doesn't need to have surgery on his foot. I am eagerly looking forward to news of the birth of his and Biljana's little girl! I wonder what her name will be?
