@IamAbraxas If it's about honestly speaking better to just say you dislike Djokovic than to say you like "versions" of him.

Has it been one article on match for Novak at AO? Or have we got all AP writings? I guess they can't be bothered with Novak at Tennis.com.  Unless they would like to write about Novak Djokovic verse fans like Tignor who doesn't mention Novak's TENNIS.

Because being "the man" for Mr. Tignor would be if Wawarinka could take out Novak Djokovic for Rafael Nadal, Tignor's obviously favorite player. 


Would he have same title if next match "Stan the man" could beat Nadal?


No.

"Nadal takes on Kei Nishikori. In their five previous matches, Rafa has lost one set. And that was on grass. In 2008." So will be boring. Why people complain Nadal has such hard draw? Look at these successes of opponents with  Nadal. Both Federer and Murray had horrible records with Nadal and Rafael can meet just one.

@JohnyStrange @skmind @FredricCantor I find them to be exact opposite as you described. Nadal is mundane and Djokovic is worldly.

@Rafessi The report on match is what promoted these kinds of commentaries. It is Tignor's fault for not writing about the tennis and writing about nitpicking one minute of frustration instead.

@jita65 Thank you to Jita for telling truth of matter. Not making exaggerations to soil Novak's character.

@SandyDeMarco I agreee with you. It would be good for fans to read the statistic or shot analysis instead of on Novak's stare contest with crowd.

@LouisAyala @Rafessi berdych has won big occasions. he beat federer at wimbledon and at uso. he beat novak at wimbledon. same as tsonga beating federer in big occasions and once even rafa at australia. the others have not had as big wins but wawarinka has beat murray couple times at us slam. gasquet and ferrer seem to loose verse top guys most times.

@LouisAyala Wimbledon 2013 draw was close only move Del Potros with Wawarinka. people made big deal then to. But again the other side ends up being easier with Andy Murray reaching finals without playing top 20 guy and Novak had to play 2 tops 10s and #13 all in a row to make finals. Draw whiners need to quit.

@topspinner @Kelly197214 As you showed they are not much different on paper. avergae rank is so close. the point is FORM, match ups, and how draw actually plays out. Why dread now? Just wait and see.

@nicky1 very good comments from Nicky1. Exactly right that wawarinka could be more tough for Novak than Del Potro could for Nadal! Steve Tignor can be blinded by his fandom some of the time in his article writings.

@Paul Goldberg @Kelly197214 I agree with you 100%. So did Yolita. Point is that nadals fan making big stink of bad draw need to REMEMBER ALL THE BREAKS that happen to open draws wide even when they would look tough and draws looking easy can become very hard ones. WAIT and see is best bet

@ProudSerb @IamAbraxas @Kelly197214 @Yolita tHIS IS POINT SO MANY of these commentors are missing. FORM of player matters. Federer just lost to Layton, Murray lost to Ferrer, mayer, Tsonga in 2014 to now. Wawrinka just won TITLE! FORM people that is what would matter. not just past success.

@IamAbraxas @Yolita  You are incorrect. You said "it be a lot easier if a player were to be GUARANTEED not to face any of these players from the start because of the draw?" Nole is not guaranteed not to face any top 20 player before final that was the point yolita correctly made. He has stanislas wawarinka, tomas berdych, David Ferrer and others in top 20. That is fair. If they all loose and he did not face ANY top 20 players before finals then Novak would finally have lUCK others had before.

To repeat in quotation what YOLITA said that makes most sense here. Other players of "big 4" have gotten bigger breaks in draws than NOVAK.


Wimbledon 2008: Roger beat, on his way to the final, players ranked 273-41-53-27-43-75

Roland Garros 2012: Rafa beat, on his way to the final, players ranked 655-44-33-29-21-27

Wimbledon 2013: Andy beat, on his way to the final, players ranked 92-75-29-26-54-22


How many times has Novak made the finals of a grand slam without having to beat a single top 20 player? 0 (ZERO). Out of 12 finals...0."

The average ranked players Rafael Nadal played in the Doha event were #67 ranking average. He did not have difficult competitors but lost some sets. It is hard to say Nadal is so great in form. Let's see him play better guys and we would know form.

@joepah Novak Djokovic has winning 11-8 head to head match with Andy Murray. He leads in slam match 3 to 2. he leads in masters series match 7 to 4. He leads in world tour final 1 to 0 wins. How this makes Mr. Murray some way Mr. Djokovic kryptonite? Please recheck facts.
