Maybe Novak should petition the ITF to make sure that in future, all Majors should be played in a vacuum.

It should be added though that it isn't Novak saying anything about weather conditions, just a minority of his fans searching for excuses.

Interesting! The bad conditions, which seem to be types we can have, were only on Nole's side of the net.
Oh it gets better! -

The losses illustrate a few important points:

Djokovic has lost to other great champions on their preferred surfaces.
Djokovic may be more affected by weather than his opponents.
Djokovic was perhaps worn down by prior matches with the Murray losses.



It should be added though that it isn't Novak saying anything about weather conditions, just a minority of his fans searching for excuses.
Novak has never, to my knowledge, blamed the weather or surfaces on any of these losses.

This particular fan though is also claiming that if Djokovic needs to find his mojo again, and that if he wins the USO, and hopefully Montreal and Cinci, then he will get his 'lost aura' back and once again rule the tennis world with an 'iron fist'. lol

Adapting to weather conditions is part of sport. Adaptability is a skill in itself...to a certain extent its aquired thru experience...but some adapt quicker than others and so it relates to mental ability. Conditions are the same for all competing

Not sure why some see a need to understand why DJoko was beaten by Andy... its not a science. Imo ...when all things are equal ... Andy shades it because he has more raw tennis talent than Djoko.

These trolls blamed the wind at the USO and now blame the heat for Wimbledon loss to Nole. For goodness sake Andy is a Jock, the same as me, from Scotland. Why would he have an advantage in extreme heat over D jokovic.

I just read an interview with some of Novak's fans and they reckon that all his future matches should be played underground in zero gravity and in complete darkness with Novak being the only player allowed to wear night vision goggles to make things fair.

  sake man.            Some Djokovic fans are so bloody weird.        from my experience they are always in denial  about Nole's losses.  OH IT'S THE WIND.      IT'S THE SUN.   OMG,  Nole is injured !!!!!!! 1111 !!!!!!     send in the ambulance.     

  They worship him and think he's the most perfect human being on the planet.         It's so tedious.       Murray won Wimbledon fair and square, he won 7 matches in a row.   He was the best player,    deal with it.

Because he trains in Miami?  Djoko though lives and presumably trains in Monte Carlo so he too should be used to the heat.

Courage doesn't always roar - but wins Wimbledon

I was listening to something on the net yesterday, an interview Andrew Castle did with one of the radio stations the day after the Wimbledon final. He said that maybe we should buy Delpo a drink, the insinuation being, of course, that Delpo wore Djokovic out, which helped Andy win. He said the same happened at the Olympics, Delpo wearing Smugfed out, etc, etc.

I hasten to add that Castle was being a bit tongue in cheek, in that way that he often is, using that tone that would make a saint give him a swift left hook. He did talk about how well Andy played, how hard he works, all the rest of it, but actually, when you get down to it, the sarcasm isn't funny. It's actually quite offensive. Why people can't just accept that Andy is capable now of winning at the highest level, with no ifs, buts or qualifications, is beyond me.

To my mind Andy has always had the potential to knock Djokovic off his perch. He got very close to beating him a few times during that great run Djokovic had in 2011, and one of those was on Andy's worst surface. The AO final in 2011 was probably one of Andy's worst performances against Djokovic, because Andy basically didn't show up, but that's why it was such a shock. Andy has often played very, very well against Djokovic, regardless of what side of the win/lose equation he has been on.

The two have got very similar games, but I do think of the two it is Andy who has the greater variety. I think that helped him on the grass especially. Andy's movement on the grass is also much better than Djokovic. There's not much between the two on hard courts as well, which could make the future very interesting.

To me there is a lot of joy, but no big shock, in Andy beating Djokovic to win major finals. Where Andy lacked in the past seems to me to have been the belief in himself that he could do it. Now he has the belief, and I think Djokovic will approach him very differently in future.

Sorry but i get fed up with argument, i hear it all the time from excuse making fans and now commentators are getting in on it, let's look at the facts shall we:

1) It isn't Andy's fault that his opponent in the final spent 5 hours trying to win a semi, if anything it's Novak's fault for not getting it done quicker, the boy had match points in set 4 and blew it, that's his problem, this goes for any player on tour.

2) If Andy has to thank Delpotro for this win, then Novak has to thank Federer for winning the AO in 2013, if this is the logic people are trying to employ right? if you go back through every grand slam win since they started you could probably quote an example of similar things happening (retirements, injuries, poor form, feathers, blisters, overhead planes, fans being attacked, Novak touching the net like an amateur, walkovers, withdrawels, having to play Mark Phillipoussis in the final, and of course luck)

The Gnome @4.10pm. I agree when it comes down to it Andy wanted to win more. Djokovic had his chances and blew it. After all Andy has beaten him before and they were both playing in the same conditions and Andy had more pressure on him to win. He was more confident than the last time he played Djokovic plus he had more determination to win and he showed it. Another big plus was the crowd they were 100% behind Andy and he obviously knew it they were like an extra man on court. He deserved his hard fought win Djokovic gave him nothing. Andy knew this was his time and took advantage he deserved his win.

And Andy played his five setter in the quarters, then had to take on the big hitting Janowicz in the semi!! No complaints.

His route was made easier by others, but he still had to beat the Worlds no.1 and did so in straight sets!!!!
