is it also possible that you don't fully understand how radical changes in diet and approach to the game can make the difference between being top five and #1?

here's another question: if you're badly allergic to a common food and you work very hard to cut out every last trace of that in your diet, do you think the result will be more energy or less energy?

think carefully, now.

Djoker's stamina went sky high because he went gluten-free and started sleeping in a hyperbolic chamber. There in no secret here.


My hopeful predictions:

Djokovic over Del Potro: 7-5, 6-3, 7-6

Jerzy over Murray: 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, 7-5

My real predictions:

Djokovic over Del Potro: 7-5, 6-3, 7-6

Murray over Jerzy: 6-4, 6-4, 6-3

Yeah because people just randomly decide to become one of the best endurance athletes in the world.

And no, no matter how much you change your diet, it doesn't effect you to that effect when you were already an elite athlete who was in tremendous shape.

It also doesn't help his case that he has very clearly been against greater testing in tennis and has said that they already test plenty when the subject has been brought up

thank you for this burst of new information.

so djokovic has now become one of the best endurance athletes in the world? wow! well, he certainly must be the talk of the international sports press, not to mention all the EPO-hunters and crusaders against blood-doping. perhaps you could do us all a favor and pick out some of the cream of the crop analysis by top writers detailing all this. i'd google it myself but there must be so many thousands of results that a layperson like me could spend hours sifting through them all. so your expertise in this matter would be much appreciated.

also, since you seem to be a nutritionist / scientist with an expert in food allergies and their effects on elite athletes, could you please send along your best references on the matter?

thanks very much for your time!

Does Djokovic remind anyone of Dwight how they both try to be funny but it's so forced (and not funny) you are embarrassed for them?

Ehh, I disagree (with Djoker, not with Dwight), but you're definitely not alone. Djokovic doesn't really seem to try to be funny nowadays, anyway.

I have not really watched tennis that much lately but Djoker use to go out of his way to try be funny and it was just cringe worthy.
