What Does Novak Djokovic Need More Before the French Open: Momentum or Rest?

Novak Djokovic’s ambition to win the French Open faces a new spin on an old dilemma. The world No. 1 conquered his biggest hard-court objectives by winning titles at Melbourne, Indian Wells and Miami in 2016, but the blueprint for his clay-court priorities are not so simple.

While nine-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal is building momentum by winning Monte Carlo and competing to regain another crown in Barcelona, Djokovic will have played one match in April—a second-round upset at the hands of Jiri Vesely.

Clearly, this was not in the Serb’s calculated plan for cleaning up the Masters 1000 titles and finally winning the French Open title he has desperately craved. 

Is five weeks and 17 matches from May to early June the ideal way for Djokovic to tune up his game, win the French Open and clinch an immortal legacy?

 

5 Mixed Years of Varying Success (2011-15)

It only takes one paragraph to explain Nadal’s formula for clay-court mastery from 2005-14. He showed up to conquer Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Rome and Roland Garros. Each of those 10 years saw him win a combination of at least two of those titles. He knew how to prepare and dominate on clay, and there was no second-guessing his maniacal approach to sweeping up red clay on planet Earth.

Djokovic has been far more ambivalent about how to attack the clay-court season.

His ascension as a tennis legend truly began in 2011, when he put together a 41-match winning streak into the French Open semifinals before getting “upset” by a late-prime version of Roger Federer. Yet, each year has subsequently brought a new story of great results and bitter conclusions at Roland Garros.

  • 2011: doesn’t play Monte Carlo; defeats Nadal for Madrid and Rome titles; loses to Federer in French Open semifinals
  • 2012: loses Monte Carlo, Rome and French Open to Nadal; ousted early on Madrid’s infamous blue clay
  • 2013: suffers ankle sprain from Davis Cup competition prior to Monte Carlo but defeats Nadal for Monte Carlo title to end Spaniard’s eight-year dynasty; loses first Madrid match; loses Rome quarterfinal; loses to Nadal in epic five-set semifinal at French Open
  • 2014: suffers wrist injury and loses to Federer at Monte Carlo; skips Madrid; defeats Nadal for Rome title; becomes ill and loses to Nadal in French Open final
  • 2015: wins Monte Carlo; skips Madrid; wins Rome; finally defeats Nadal but loses to Stan Wawrinka in French Open final

A few things stand out. Djokovic has had to make decisions about recovering from injury, and this has led to occasional rest or missed time, specifically at Madrid. He’s been forced into different patterns and is reticent about playing a full schedule of three Masters 1000 tournaments, let alone throwing in a tournament like Barcelona and trusting he will be rested for the French Open.

Djokovic used to have a late-prime Nadal blocking his way, and the Spaniard was better on clay in the biggest matches—especially the French Open.

Is he fretting too much about the end and not paying enough attention to the beginning and middle? During May’s grueling troika, Djokovic has all but cast aside Madrid. Maybe the blue clay in 2012 was enough to embitter his relationship with the tournament because he only played one match a year later (loss to Grigor Dimitrov) and has not come back since.

 

Momentum or Rest?

Maybe Djokovic is being overly cautious about burning out, but perhaps his carefully planned schedule for rest could lead to rust. While Nadal is streaking back to serious clay-court contention, Djokovic is on the sidelines perhaps wondering if he should have played a tune-up match at Barcelona or Bucharest.

Maybe slowing down Nadal at Barcelona could have been a double triumph in asserting his dominance and allowing him the luxury to forgo Madrid and charge back into Rome and Roland Garros for only 12 potential matches in four weeks, which is still a big load when the world No. 1 must fend off everyone’s best shots.

Maybe he should fly to Munich or Portugal to get in some work and momentum, again allowing him to avoid Madrid—rapidly becoming the troublesome relationship that must seemingly be terminated with an awkward dismissal.

Suppose Djokovic jilts Madrid again but loses another Vesely-like match in the second round at Rome. Suddenly, the world No. 1 would be heading to the French Open with no clay-court victories and no wins at all since late March on hard courts.

It would be as if somebody had scattered his favorite puzzle and pressed him to put together all the pieces during a changeover. Meanwhile, Nadal could be grooving along with a mini-renaissance.

If Djokovic does play and win titles at Madrid and Rome, will he be finely tuned and energized for seven best-of-five matches at the French Open? Last summer, he nearly burned himself at the U.S. Open series when he lost back-to-back finals at Canada and Cincinnati before regrouping for the U.S. Open title. He won the big prize, but he was clearly worn down before he found his second wind.

Then again, Djokovic could simplify everything. He could go out with every intention of dominating 17 straight matches from Madrid to Rome to Paris. He’s the dominant No. 1, and all he needs to do is let it rip and live with the results, just as Nadal used to do.

Djokovic dearly wants to win the French Open, but being overly cautious about rest is probably not the answer.

Win now. Rest in mid-June.

Jurgen Klopp: No regrets with leaving Daniel Sturridge on Liverpool bench

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool will try everything they can to overcome Villarreal. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has no regrets about leaving Daniel Sturridge on the bench for their Europa League semifinal defeat in Villarreal and even with hindsight would make the same decision again. The England striker, who has scored four in his last five matches, was an unused substitute in Spain on Thursday night despite the Reds lacking a cutting edge up front and thousands of fans on social media were left bemused. Klopp insists he has to make difficult decisions in the best interests…

Daniel Cormier vs. Jon Jones 2: Early Odds for UFC 200 Main Event

UFC officially announced Wednesday that the rematch between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier for the light heavyweight championship is set to headline UFC 200 in July.

The highly anticipated clash replaces another rematch, Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor, as the main event after McGregor’s retirement saga. Odds Shark passed along the early odds as Jones looks to pick up another victory over Cormier after winning the first bout by unanimous decision:

Jones and Cormier were originally scheduled to face off at UFC 197 last week. The light heavyweight champion was forced to pull out with a foot injury, however, so Jones fought Ovince Saint Preux for the interim belt instead and eased to victory by unanimous decision.

That triumph marked the 28-year-old New York native’s first bout since his initial battle with Cormier 15 months prior. In between, he went through a series of highly publicized personal issues that kept him away from the Octagon.

Jones wasn’t anywhere close to his best against Saint Preux, who merely didn’t have enough weapons to compete with a top-tier opponent, even one dealing with rust after an extended break. He’ll need to improve markedly in order to score a second straight win over his rival. 

Cormier certainly didn’t come away from that fight impressed, per Damon Martin of Fox Sports:

He got the job done. A lot of times most guys they don’t have their best performance, they lose, they don’t get it done. So it shows how special Jon is.

With that being said, very disappointed that I didn’t get to compete tonight because I do believe if he showed up in the form that he did tonight or if this is the new Jon Jones, there’s no way that guy can beat me.

Now the MMA world is going to get a chance to find out if that forecast from the 37-year-old veteran is accurate. He won the vacant title with an impressive submission victory over Anthony Johnson while Jones was away and backed it up by beating the powerful Alexander Gustafsson by split decision.

Although UFC went through a period of turmoil while McGregor was claiming retirement and Cormier’s status was unclear due to injury, it appears everything is going to work out in the end. Jones against Cormier in a unification bout is a rock-solid fight to headline the marquee event.

The biggest question will be which version of Jones shows up in Las Vegas on July 9. The one who looked beatable against Saint Preux or the formerly dominant champion who owned the light heavyweight division for years. The answer will likely determine who walks out as the champ.

Carmelo Anthony Responds to Phil Jackson’s Critique of Knicks’ Play

Earlier in April, New York Knicks president Phil Jackson said of the team and its superstar, Carmelo Anthony, “Some of our best games we played were when Carmelo didn’t play and we didn’t win but we had great games,” per Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News.

On Thursday, Anthony responded to those cryptic comments in an interview on SI Now, via SI NBA:

“I really don’t know how to take that quote,” Anthony said. “I try not to insinuate anything when I hear that quote. The only person who knows what he is really talking about is Phil.”

What it seemed Jackson was hinting at, however, is that the Knicks are better off without Anthony going forward. When he was asked after making those initial comments if he planned on continuing to build around his star forward, Jackson avoided a direct answer.

“You know, the thing about Carmelo is we came here and had a discussion, it is all about communication and the fact that he wants to stay here,” Jackson said, per Bondy. “Those are two things that are real important to him.”

Anthony, on the other hand, still believes his future is in New York and talked to Jackson about his place in the team’s future plans.

“I really sat down and looked him in the eye man-to-man, and he told me that,” Anthony told SI Now‘s Maggie Gray (via Sports Illustrated). “That’s the only thing I can go off of, another man sitting in front of me and telling what he feels, what he likes, what’s his plan. That’s the only thing I can really go off of.”

Anthony, 31, was productive for the Knicks in 2015-16, averaging 21.8 points, 7.7 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game.

At some point, however, the Knicks will begin building around rookie star Kristaps Porzingis, and an argument could be made that keeping Anthony in New York—where he will always be the center of the offense—will delay that rebuilding effort, much as it was suggested that Kobe Bryant stymied the development of 2015 first-round pick D’Angelo Russell with the Los Angeles Lakers this season.

On the other hand, the Knicks do not have a first-round pick in this year’s draft, so quickly retooling around Anthony and Porzingis through free agency may be the team’s best bet. If the team ever does move on from Anthony, it will likely be to trade him for a glut of draft picks and young assets.

While that seems unlikely given Anthony’s attachment to the organization, Jackson’s cryptic comments appear to be keeping an eventual divorce from Anthony at least within the realm of possibility.
