Analysis coming: stay tuned.
Don’t miss my post earlier today: Djokollapse: the final chapter?
One final note here. This is the news today.
I have a post titled “Where Does Novak Go From Here” dated September 14, 2016. We’ve been analyzing and predicting this for a looooooong time at Mcshow Tennis.
Maybe follow along?
You know how I’m often touting our analysis over here vs. the mainstream slow-poke media, right? Above I pointed-out how the Tennis.com article reporting Novak’s massive lay-off of longtime supporters/insiders and suddenly wondering where he goes from here is about 9 months late. Come-on, people. Get your tennis brains in order.
But on top of that there is a detail from the article that probably helps explain how lazy and overcome with incapacity are these “commentors:”
The author, guy named Kallet, is recounting the year leading-up to this massive firing-squad lay-off of Vajda, et al. He gets to 2017 and one can see the writer trying to add to this “shocking” decline narrative (that’s a complete misread). Here’s what he says about Doha:
“Beginning the season as the world No. 2 for the first time in what seemed like forever, Djokovic appeared to be back in full form. He took the title in Doha—just his second trophy since winning the French Open—defeating Murray in straight sets in the final.”
Wrong. He did NOT appear to be back in full form, as we argued (probably) eloquently. He AND Murray looked less than sharp. But the real kicker is this guy Kallet thinks (to support his flawed theory) that Novak won in straight sets. He did NOT win in straight sets. He had that result on his racquet, but the Scot broke and forced a decider, which was critical to our analysis . . . which apparently these fanboys (or worse: imposters) missed, because it didn’t fit their little tennis universe. Or whatever.
You get my point. Pretty soft, if you ask me.
