Novak Djokovic

Novak Djokovic has six singles Grand Slam titles accredited to his name. He is the holder of several Open Era men’s records and is the youngest player to make it to the semi-finals in all the four tournaments of the Grand Slam that too consecutively and separately. He has also won three titles at the Australian Open consecutively.

Novak Djokovic has made it real big in the world of tennis. He has won numerous championships and his Grand Slam victories are a definite habit. He is also the first Serbian playing men’s tennis and represent Serbia in World Tennis. Success has been on his feet for a real long time.  He has defeated players like Andy Roddick and Rafael Nadal in some tournaments and has emerged victorious. He won his first title of the Grand Slam in the year 2008. In the year 2009 he made it to the finals of ten tournaments and won the title in five of those tournaments. This is definitely a really great achievement.

But of late, his performance has been quite poor. He was knocked out in round 2 of Madrid Open by getting defeated by Grigor Dimitrov and also didn’t succeed in the quarter finals of the Rome Masters against Tomas Berdych. Of late he seems to be struggling on the court and it definitely looks like he is out of form. Speculations say that he has been troubled by an ankle pain but he hasn’t officially announced been suffering from something like that or making any such excuse for such poor form. Djokovic himself thinks that he is caught up in a strange situation but then he believes that he will be able to come out of this unpleasant phase. The trouble lies in the fact that the experts believe that Djokovic’s current performance isn’t taking him anywhere near the finals of the French Open. While some say that he is the Number 1 tennis player and he will retain it, others believe that his time to remain on the top nears an end with his bad performance. Djokovic hasn’t been playing well enough, not even half of what he is known for and is capable of.

So, it is really hard to tell what is coming next. Will he or will he not retain his rank and his titles. Amidst all speculations, all that needs to be done is to wait and watch.
