Thus far he has only lost 3 matches this year...to Karlovic at Doha, to Federer at Dubai and to Wawrinka at RG. He ended 2011 with just 6 losses and we're about half way into the season and he has just 3 losses...

Who do you think will beat him next this year? Or do you think it will be an unbeaten run?

Nadal might do it in some unlikely place. Or a random ballbasher. I now think Rafa and Nole are vulnerable to similar games. Fed's always a threat.

He definitely won't be unbeaten for the rest of the season, but it's almost impossible to predict where he will lose and to whom. His 2 most random losses in 2014 were to Tsonga and Robredo in Toronto/Cinci. Something like that could happen when you least expect it.

He will lose to all the players in the top 100 that are 30 years old and over.

Well spotted. I missed that. All players to have beaten the world number 1 this year are in their 30s. Funny!

Wow, 3 losses...

Mastersovic should focus on Slams.

But to answer your question, we must see who will beat him at Wimbledon and US Open, obviously.

So let's say Murray and Nadal :D

This should have been a multiple-select poll. He's going to have more than one loss the rest of the year, taking nothing away from his greatness.

I expect him to win Wimbledon, although Murray could upset him, and not be beaten again until the Fall season, where Andy may have another shot.

Rest of No1e's season:

Wimbledon W
Canada SF - loses to Murray or Nishikori
Cincy W
USO W
Beijing W
Shanghai W
Paris - early exit - loses to someone else
WTF W, with one loss in RR - loses to Berdych in a meaningless match

6 loses total.

Wow, this is very bold, can't think why? ;)

Probably his loss to Berdych is most likely thing you wrote :p

I think Wawrinka might beat him again at US Open final. Just a hunch

The tears from the Djokovic nerd brigade will flow longer than the Nile River if that actually happens. :haha:

Cincinnati > Roland Gyarados

This should be Djokovic's primary focus of the season.
