Djokovic out of action due to injury!

posted on 27/7/17

It's a shame that Djokovic declined so rapidly just after the authorities clamped down on drugs cheats. I imagine his "elbow injury" occurred because he was shaking his fist so violently in disapproval at the drugs cheats that he injured it and it got gradually worse because he was so disheartened that his fellow pros would cheat like that.

Lewis Spence what are trying to say?Any website or other link to your claims would be welcomed by me.

Hope he recovers and gets better soon

I still can't believe that the same 4 players are dominating when fit. To win tournaments without losing a set at this age is really bad for the game in my opinion.

I am hoping that Zverev, Thiem, Coric, Fritz and co step up and possibly win a slam in the next 12 months. I've given up on Dmitrov, Raonic, Nishikori, Tomic, Kyrgious etc.

As for Ferrer, Berdych, Tsonga, Gasquet, Monfils, Cilic well I'm afraid the only guy that has had real success of that bunch is Wawrinka.

Well I like Thiem and Zverev so I see them as future Grand Slam winners and world number 1s.

I couldn't agree more. Back-to-back slams won by tennis OAPs with no sets dropped. Bad for tennis all round.

Thiem, Zverev and Kyrgios - with the latter arguably the most talented of the lot but with little mental fortitude- need to wake up.

PS

If Murray is 'fit' , big if as he seems to be 'patching' his hip. I think he should be among the favourites. USO is one of his best slams and he always has some success at the AO.

Cilic to be fair did win a slam and I thought with the way the draw opened up, he might play the match of his life and beat Federer at Wimbledon. Unfortunately he was outclassed.

Del Potro's injury problems are a shame, he seemed like one of the only younger players who could potentially consistently mix it with the big boys.

Yeah, DP was a shame as IMO he would never fulfil the potential we all saw after winning that USO.

His biggest weapon for instance, his FH, has been diminished by repeated wrist injuries.

Red Cognoscente Murray is not a favourite for any Grand Slam and I think that Nadal is favourite for US Open 2017 and Australian Open 2018 and he will also win end of season ATP Barclays trophy.

posted on 2/8/17

Nadal is favourite for nothing other than the FO.

EOY trophy? Something he has never won in about 15 years on tour.

He will win it this time.Mark my words.

=======================================

Yes, that was a real shame, in 2009 he was doing really well all year, his win wasn't just a flash in the pan, but injuries since then have taken their toll and whenever he seems to threaten again, he then spends time out injured.

I give Cilic credit that he did win a slam and played really well there, but just so disappointing that the hasn't looked like winning a slam since. I know he got to the final of Wimbledon, but at no point in the match did I think "Yes, he will take the title today". He just looked like a lost boy out there.

CiIic would have beaten Federer if he was fully fit.

That chatter is an odd ball at best and a run-of-the-mill troll. His unintelligible musings suggest as much.

Anyway, Stan The Man will not be defending his USO title and will miss the rest of the season.

Wow...turning out to be anti-climax of a season

Zverev has won another title, nice to see a young player producing.

The next few tournaments should be interesting:
Montreal
Cincinatti
US Open

posted on 9/8/17

Yes, good from Zverev and i hope it is a sign of things to come but he has yet to beat a top-50 player in a slam so very much unproven.

Certainly has the tools though...

posted on 9/8/17

Yes, his slam record is not so good, he may have a problem where he peaks in the lead up tournaments, like he won in Rome, then went out early in the French.

But he is still young and his record at slams could change very soon.

posted on 9/8/17

Yeah, i hope it changes. It is just for a mooted world no 1 to not have got past the 4th round of a slam is not too encouraging - especially when competing with OAPs ( granted, 3 of those are all-time greats).

Still 4 trophies this year of which one is a masters is nothing to be sniffed about. I don't give him any chance at the Flushing Meadows though.

Still Zverev is a good prospect but my favourite youngster is Dominic Thiem.

posted on 9/8/17

Thiem is very good on clay, but his tactic of standing miles behind the baseline doesn't seem to be working on the hardcourts. He hasn't been winning many matches since the French Open, I think a similar thing happened to him last year.

His style of play is similar to Nadal and I think he will win French Open multiple times in his career.

posted on 14/8/17

Well done again to Zverev, absolutely destroyed Federer in Montreal. Let's hope he can back this up by going deep in the US Open.

posted on 14/8/17

Ok Zverev, you had my curiosity...now you have my attention

His defeat of Kyrgios was a more impressive performance than the final in many ways but another masters in the bag.

Oh and Shapavolov...i like him.
