Djokovic is not a natural net player, he feels most comfortable at the baseline.

Wouldn't say he's a bad doubles player though. I think he's just not that into it.

Fabio almost carried his sorry ass into the Indian Wells final earlier this year. Djokovic looked like a headless chicken in some moments.
Djokovic plays few matches per year at most and treats them as practice sessions, it would be a miracle if he were anything more than an average doubles player. Not to mention that his doubles partners are often his brothers or other random Serbian player.

LMAO... I think it was Troicki's fault why they lost today... but having said that Djokovic natural game is maneuvering opponent around the court but he can't do that in doubles.

It's pretty simple: doubles require more talent and touch - things Novack lacks, singles require more endurance - which he has in excess.

The net player takes away one of his favourite returns - right at the server's feet. Also I'd rather have him on the Ad side but Troickis forehand is too weak.

Rafa and Roger definitely look more natural doubles players.

Really, they barely even play doubles.

I can attest to this.

I was close to front row for the doubles Semi Final and Fabio looked like a tennis tactician , while Djokovic looked like Jack Sock in Singles...
