Interesting. That to me sounds like the end of his career. I can't see who can improve his game, fitness and confidence. 

As Federer said, things are very clear when you are number 1. Much more confusing when you drop down.

I think it's brilliant. Needs to move that guru on and he might have a fresh canvas to work with.

True, except that Djokovic didn't just drop...he dropped dead in a way.
At least it's interesting...and will keep Federer motivated to maintain the distance between him and that opportunistic Jack-al.

You could argue like Nadal he was heading in a similar direction in regards to his team in not being ruthless enough to make change when necessary. Look at Moya and the influence he has wielded and how that's not have a pronounced effect on Nadal in a positive way. Yes Djokovic toyed with Becker and certainly led to change in approach, but certainly Djokovic needs to look at taking his tennis in a new direction.

Quite clearly I feel we are seeing the beginning of the end of war attritional based tennis.

Attritional tennis is Nadal's invention.

Nole never started as such.

We'll see what happens with him now.
He clearly loves the game too much in order to retire.

His only chance is to flatten his fh.

That's what his late coach (who must be turning in her grave) was always telling him.

Regardless, he's had a fantastic career, and I as his olde fan.

He may not have started it, but he honed it.

Physically you can see it has caught up with him and even Murray. Their bodies simply buckling (Murray's more) and as Ten coined about chickens coming home to roost, I'll be intrigued to see where Djokovic goes tennis wise. Love to see him up the aggression.

smart move,hasnt won a title in almost a year now
if changes arent made now it may be too late

but who knows,maybe he will prove me wrong

As things stand he is surrounded by super losers: his wife, guru and his envious middle brother...plus the wannabe Vemic.
Enough to make even yahoo cry!

I actually think Vajda &co sacked Nole, not the other way round.

So it will be himself he will have to look at in the mirror every day now.
And no amount of frustration can change anything.

I'd love to see him beat Nadal once more...but Nadal will be kept from him in the draws, as far as possible...

Let's see how things pan out in Madrid.

Djoko's problem is still in his head. He just needs to find confidence again.

Maybe it is a drug related issue too as this woudl explain this sudden drop after Wimbledon but that's only speculation and therefore not very helpful.

I find it interesting that the LTA has just agreed to increase doping budget and tests by more than 50%. It's a curious decision knowing there is hardly any new case in tennis bar Sharapova which clearly is not the result of additional test. So clearly the LTA knows something we don;t.

I find this news going hand in hand with the sudden need to rewrite sport history records.

All points to the fact that they worked out that doping was much more rampant than known..or at least talked about .

For me the giveaway is the fact Gritch and Armanovic left.


That means he is finished.

Even the physio?

Ok that's just weird. He must have had some kind of fall out. No one sacks their entire team in order to try something different - especially not the physio.

This may be the end. At the very least you'd imagine that the road back to the top just got longer and steeper. 

Djokovic has always seemed like the kind of guy that needs a strong team and support network around him. I can't imagine him being successful as a solo act.

theres obviously a lot more going on behind the scenes then we are aware of 
djokovic has been with his serbian team for as long as i can remember so this will be a massive adjustment especially being on tour
just wondering who he will team up with next.. a former all time great or just a very good coach..hmm

I can just imagine....

Shall we have a guess how many &who will be "exposed"?

I just wish they all went back to the hole they came from and keep their little LTA/ITF jobs quietly.

I don't think I could cope with a other "good riddance" story...

I think if he's not finished he's well on the way.

Shockingly, this increases the chance that the top of the rankings will soon resemble 2007.

Imagine he bumps into Kyrgios in Madrid...again..and loses again.
Who is he going to sack then?

Btw, apparently Djokovic already has a new physio  who arrived with him in Madrid: Lucas Bennetau (?!!!)

Alongside his loser brother Marko. Guru Pepe is probably sunbaking in his tennis academy (at which Djokovic trained last week stalked & suffocated by his pregnant wife taking millions of photos for her instagram) laughing all the way.

I cannot believe it.

I think Djoko knows it's not his baby this second one, that's why so much tension this year, thats why all the team was suspect of fathering it, so he fired them when no finger prints found, or so I heard in the Bus yesterday....

Agassi, the player more successful post 30 than pre-30.

Not a bad choice....though frankly, I am not sure how Agassi could transfer his knowledge and skills. I never believed in those champions turning coaches. ...though I would not be surprised if federer were a good one.

I believe in a more modern player like Ljubicic able to pass on some tiny technical tips making a huge difference.

He doesn't need a new coach he needs a new dietician because he looks a lot weaker,. oh and some sun screen to deal with the heat that he hates playing under.

I think that is his only choice...but totally disappointed by him for keeping that guru.

Based on what I have observed so far...he is going to have hard time, but it's largely all of his own making, so actually I don't feel sorry for him.

I agree. I see a lot of fear and doubt in his eyes. At the very least the tour is going to sense further vulnerability and that will make the lesser lights more courageous.

I have to say he speaks English so well. very articulate. In contrast Nadal has hardly improved his English at all over the years. But Djokovic also speaks French and Italian too?

Actually, in that clip, his English is a bit rusty and he is speaking with American accent, which means he is spending a lot of time with thr guru and the wife who has the ugliest american accent ever (apologies to any Americans here, just don't like it).

Djokovic is not totally dead and buried, though. I don't know how much Serbian blood is in him, but however much it is, that's what's keeping him alive. Big Grin
