So because Federer didn't get rid of his entire coaching team it means that every other player has to do the same? If Federer felt he wasn't benefiting from his physical fitness trainer you don't think he would have axed him? Give me a break. Federer got rid of everybody else besides his fitness trainer many times in his career so I don't know wth you are talking about. He's had many head coaches, different physiotherapists, different assistant coaches, etc.
 
Professional tennis players don't have any obligation to keep their coaching teams for an eternity! I'm sure Djokovic looked after these individuals who are like family to him.

They didn't serve Djok out of sheer altruism and now Djok owes them the
same compassion back, if that's what you mean.
 
They're professionals, have been payed for their services and now it's
time to move on. Djok has fired/rehired these guys before.

This is my opinion and this is how I behave, no need for people to be upset.
 
Clearly the negative energy is all coming from djokovic not the people he fired.

I agree with several folks here who have said that Djok need not be stuck with a team that gets paid but which according to him inspires him no more. Just to get a good name from PWL! As has been expressed already here, he has a small 'shelf life' to try and achieve bigger goals like 18. He should experiment with new models if the old fails to yield results.

As opposed to a nuanced thoughtful FedererFanatic? ;-)

Yes, I agree, even though personally as a player I identify far more
with Lendl. At my piddling level, like Lendl, I managed to win far more
matches than my natural talent would indicate. I have very little
natural tennis ability, but the last time I played a season of USTA
tennis, I won about 90% of my matches and the USTA tried to promote my
rating for the next year, which was laughable because probably 95% of
the guys I beat were clearly more talented and skilled. I just had
non-tennis attributes in my corner, namely a Connors/Hewitt bulldog
tenacity and desire to win, and at middle-age a still-fit 6'2", 215
pound body with broad shoulders and long arms that can generate a lot of
power on a shot when I want/need it, and an approximate 160 IQ that
allows me to usually outsmart the other guy.
 
But as far as natural tennis ability, I'm a 1 on a scale of 1 to 10. Mac
was an 11+.

I see why a fan might look at it this way, and I can relate, as I was
frustrated when Serena ran out of gas just short of winning the CYGS in
2015. But these players are human, they can only push for so hard for so
long. Joker had an amazing run where he accomplished what nobody has
accomplished since Laver, holding all 4 slam titles at the same time. It
was understandable that after that prodigious achievement, there would
be a letdown, a relaxation of mind and body, and tennis is so
competitive that if even a top champ lets down his guard a smidge,
others will rush past.
 
Joker just needs to realize that this "lost year" has not derailed him
in any permanent way. He still has career-time to regroup and accomplish
all his goals, the main one being to eventually surpass Fed's 18 slams.
 
He should emulate Serena. After her CYGS failure, she had a letdown, and
lost the AO and FO finals. But then she regrouped, refocused and what
happened? She won last year's W and this year's AO to surpass Graf and
become the Open Era GOAT anyway. She didn't let a letdown stop her, and
neither should Joker.

Serena had little to no competition with WTA tour, I just don't think Djoker has the same buffer with his competition, the chance he has to win 17 already left him after last year's FO, at his best in 2015-2016 he held 4 slam titles at the same and those time will unlike to repeated in future years as he will be 30 pretty soon.

That's a tough quarter final on clay any which way, if every one plays to their seedings, for Federer. Of course if Murray and Djokovic are still in uncertain form it may not be all that bad to be in their quarter. They may not even make it to the quarters or could lose there.

Would be great to see Fed beat Rafa at FO, five in a row this year!! God is watching!
