Joker is having a mini-crisis of motivation and confidence. It will pass
very soon, probably by Wimbledon.

Yes, but he nevertheless has waisted 12 months of his career. It's
even more regrettable because he suffered no physical decline, it
was mostly mental. Even if body and mind might need a long break,
I don't think mind needs 12 months.
 
So this could actually be a good move. New challenge for him.
 
But the right moment for a clean cut and fresh start like this,
was already after 6 months of decline and losing number 1, after
that YEC final.
 
So, even though you can't control whether motivation crisis will
occur, and we can't say he's waisted any time, because no one can
be peak all the time, especially after his immense run, maybe
he's indeed made a mistake of not doing this when Becker left, 6
months ago, start everything from the fresh.

That's the hope... but, the firing of Vajda one might identify as "concerning"... cleaning house just to clean house has an air of desperation about it... when Nole 'partnered' with his 'life coach' and personal guru, the signal was sent far and wide... he was changing, with a family and other obligations outside of a playing career, he's had to make adjustments to his entire lifestyle/way of being... that and just maturing and becoming more interested in life beyond just tennis results/championships... so the tectonic ripples are still radiating outward from these developments... that certainly put strain on his marriage, as has been alluded to over the past 5+ months... At least there hasn't been (as far as I am aware) any talk of another woman in his life or matters of that kind... in fact he and his wife are expecting their second child... how tennis fits EXACTLY into his life/goals now will be fascinating to see...
 
MAKE NO MISTAKE... these are at once critical and massive changes to his tennis career... how will he respond/adapt? The entire Nole situation has been keenly interested... such a great champion, at 29, how will he move forward? Can he reassemble a winning formula? What a gamble...

[From The Guardian - excerpt]
 
Last November, Djokovic enlisted the help of the former Spanish player Pepe Imaz, who preaches a philosophy of amor y paz (love and peace) as central to his coaching. In his statement, the world No2 added that he believes this "shock therapy" will help him achieve better results, although he intends to take his time in selecting a new coach.
 
"I want to continue raising the level of my game and stamina and this is a continuous process," said Djokovic. "I enjoy this journey, it feels like I am starting something new again and I love this challenge. I am a hunter and my biggest goal is to find the winning spark on the court again.
 
"I have so much faith in this process and that's why I will take time to find the right person who I can connect with professionally. I have been on the tour long enough to know how to manage daily routines and I don't want to rush my decision. I will be on the tour alone for a while with support of my family and management. I will inform the public when I find the right person, but for now I thank you for your support and understanding."

Just get rid of that fucking guru, Pepe Imaz.

That whole thing which is truly absurd could be a Spanish secret
service ploy to bring him down.

Maybe he should try out Serena's coach. I think he's trained at that academy before.

Given the longevity of players' careers these days could this
simply be tennis mid-life crisis?

He is an AH, firing people that dedicated their lives for his career just because he felt like it.
 
I don't care if he is burnt out or not but it just shows his class.

I haven't liked Djok in the past, but I'm really starting to feel for him.
He is obviously searching, and I hope he finds what he's looking for.
 
There is more to life than tennis.

Addiction is one thing, but gambling? That's just simple math.
Gambling is a tax on people who aren't good at math.

Having won that award so many times now, one might begin to wonder why Federer doesn't just doesn't to to the ATP executives and say something like: "It has been a real honour to have won this award many times, it might be best if my name is taken out of consideration from now on..." Or something to that effect... No fanfare, just let the ATP know that he wants the award to be won by others now... My take anyway...

If you want to prosecute the Russian hacker for "unauthorized access of
a computer", a misdemeanor in most states, or even sentence him/her to a
year in prison like Sarah Palin's email hacker got a few years back
(most libs thought that punishment was WAY too harsh and motivated by
political vindictive, btw), sure, I'm on board with that. But is it a
good use of tax dollars to spend millions of dollars investigating it?

So far, there's no evidence that the Russian hackers fabricated any
emails, as far as we know, they just revealed their truthful contents.

You are a Hillary lover so you should know, also Obama was lying about us being last in the queue too, as anybody with sense knows that is being the 5th biggest economy in the world wouldn't be last in the queue, truth telling Trump said the polar opposite.
