Loss provided important info. Djokovic knows how far away he is, and how much he needs to work. He can't just pick up where he left things from a year ago. If he needed confirmation, this loss to Nadal was it.

He needs match play. Practice can never simulate real matches. The walkover provided from the idiot weak ass Nishikori does not help.

True, I was watching early part of the match today and it looked like Novak hadn't picked up a racquet in months. Lacking any sort of rhythm, while his game hinges on it.
 
Though their next match should be much closer he's unlikely to recover the form in time to stop Rafa at the FO... Dare I say it... We may need Federer to do the impossible.

Does his father even want him playing tennis anymore? This is a man who didn't understand & questioned why Federer was still on tour in his mid 30s.

Good point. I forgot.
 
I've seen his father doing an interview last year, this time of
the year, assuring reporters Novak would win FO, if not this year
(2016) then next, but he would win it before he retires. No
doubt.
 
 
And he was saying how he was telling Novak all the time, win FO
and then quit, enjoy life, but Novak always replied to him, no I
want to become goat.
 
 
Good point. His father too isn't that pumped up for Novak to chase
records at the sacrifice of personal life now that he's achieved
everything and reach heights.
 
Yeah.

> He has to be seen as the clear favorite, but "certainty" is a minefield. We've seen players enter a slam off a string of tuneup wins before only to come crashing down in flames like the Hindenberg. I hold out a thin hope that will be the case here. :)
 
I certainly don't want to see that. It's so anti-climatic.
 
If Nadal is not to win it, I want to see Djokovic miraculously
rediscovering his form and beating him, or Murray heroics, or
even total misery of Federer beating Rafa. Something like that.

 
What fun is there in Nadal crashing early due to a bad day,
injury, and then someone exploiting 'WoO'?
 
It's the most dull thing in sport.

Perhaps the only positive. Djokovic won't have the defending champion's pressure in Paris. Nadal has it (not that it bothers him). Most people will think Djokovic will have no chance, so maybe the ability to swing freely will help.

His boat is sinking fast. The holes won't be easy to plug up.
Jason White <infiniti_g35_guy88@yahoo.com>: May 13 10:46AM -0700

Clearly Djokovic is way off boat. His intensity and caring for tennis has dropped off significantly.
 
But this is also proof that Nadal's level has been high this year.
