Novak Djokovic Confirms Participation In Canadian Open, Rio Olympics And Cincinnati

On his website, Novak Djokovic confirmed his summer schedule earlier this week.

The Serb will seek a fourth title at the Toronto Masters starting on Monday (the draw will be released later tonight).

He will then travel to Brazil for the Olympic games which begin on Saturday, August 6 before returning to the U.S. to bid for a first title in Cincinnati on August 15.

Djokovic was stunned on July 2 by Sam Querrey in the third round at Wimbledon. And afterward he left his future schedule uncertain.

“We’ll see. I have to think about it,” he said of his schedule. “Get away from tennis.”

Djokovic didn’t play in Serbia’s Davis Cup loss, but he will be back next week.

Djokovic’s rivals Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer all withdrew from the Toronto event leaving the World No. 1 as the heavy favorite for the title. And with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga also pulling out, Djokovic will be the only former champion in the field.

Danica Says:

J-Kath,
Terrifying news. I am flying via Frankfurt on Monday and this is certainly not a welcome news :(

Regarding Rogers Cup, I don’t expect Nole to do well there. I’m thinking he’ll just get a few good HC matches under his belt and then bolt. Bigger titles are in line waiting.


Danica Says:

Nole and Milos could meet in the semis.


Wog Boy Says:

Very strong field in Toronto, Nole has big servers on his side half, Muller, Zverev, Isner, Berdych, Raonic all possible oponents, agree with Danica.


skeezer Says:

Very strong field? wtf, lol & lmao!
Weak era tournament.


Travis Bickle Says:

Calm down skeezer. Pet your cats and breathe deeply. That should help… Or even go on Federer-as-a-baby thread that this site put for The Cult while The Man is not playing ;-)

Regarding Canadian Open (btw, Federer’s favourite tournament) draw, there are some interesting 2nd round matchups:
Berdych-Coric
Raonic-Zverev
Goffin-Querrey
Cilic-Karlovic
Kyrgios-Dimitrov

Regarding Djoker’s chances, it is pretty simple lately – if he wants to win it, nobody could touch him. However, he may want to use this as a needed practice for the Olympics and not worry about the outcome of his matches, thereby leaving the title to a first-time winner.


Wog Boy Says:

All 2016 inform and relevant players, but one (Rafa), are playing Toronto, meaning strong firld.
Roger is irelevant this year, out of seven played tournaments he made one final (250) and won zero tournaments, there is good chance that after Toronto he will drop out of top 10 in the race to London, he is just irrelevant this year and will stay irrelevant until he goes out with a whimper, I know..I know..it pains The Cult members to admit so, particulary The Cult leader.


Wog Boy Says:

Sorry, I missed Andy, that makes two relevant players missing, still strong field, all up and coming players are in Toronto.


skeezer Says:

“…it is pretty simple lately – if he wants to win it, nobody could touch him”

Simpler still, without the top other 3 players in the world, its a no brainer.
Easy there CON cult, he’s a shoo in. Weak era.


skeezer Says:

TB,
Thank you for mentioning Querry, somehow someway he is a relevant player to watch now, with all the Majors he has won or gotten close to winning. Can’t be because of the most supposed dominate player of all time lost to him early at the most important major in history , in his prime. Say it isn’t so Joe!
Taxi! Taxi! Dang, where is one when u need em?
#uber is better.


Markus Says:

Djokovic, can be playing against a field of women players and his dumbwit idolaters will still call it a strong field. Pathetic fools.


Wog Boy Says:

All what’s left for fedfanatics and The Cult members is to troll Nole fans and throw insults, even pizza delivery boy is trying to match his cult leader in trolling Nole fans, what a pathetic bunch of losers:)


skeezer Says:

This is the strongest field in the history if tennis with Murray, Fed and Rafa out. Lets count how many slam winners are left in the tourney. I am sure the tennis fandom world will be watching in record numbers. Not.
Have fun CON cult.


Travis Bickle Says:

Marcus, Skeezer:

What’s gotten into you two? You mad?
I posted an info about a Masters tournament draw on a tennis forum and identified some interesting early matches for tennis fans who are interested in … you guessed it… tennis. NOTHING wrong with it!!!

Yet, you two are whining like infants and something keeps bothering you…
Speaking of infants, I respectfully suggest you move away from true tennis topics such as Masters draw and go to infant-Federer thread on this very site. There you can salivate all over his baby photo and be safe from “annoying” posts discussing upcoming matches in Toronto.

I feel truly sorry for you and am simply trying to alleviate your distress by suggesting a solution. Another good alternative would be to drift away towards RF.com – I’m sure it’s a beautiful web site – I sometimes go there for my research on psychiatric disorders…


skeezer Says:

“What’s gotten into you two? You mad?
Quite the contrar, you haven’t read your own posts of late about federer, “fed fans” and the so called cult thereof? You cannot post without mentioning Fed or his fans. Calm down, Novak is your fav I thought.

You can dish out but can’t take the heat? It’s just like you say, an opinion.
Apparently the moniker of a psycho taxi driver does’t like the kitchen. Too much heat.

“All what’s left for nolefanatics and The Cult members is to troll Fed fans and throw insult”
“what a pathetic bunch of losers:)”
Gee WB, this describes you and your gang perfectly. Check the other threads, your gang trolls Fed like flys on rice.

Just enjoy Nole’s dominance (take a lesson from jane)and play on court during this time, no need to pee on Fed to make him look better, its an insult to Nole. His accomplishments stand on his own, he doesn’t need his CON cult to compare, insult, trash talk the GOAT. It just shows unneccessary jealousy, insecurity, and too much attention to the Maestro. The Maestro is fine and peaceful atop the plateau of tennis greats.


Wog Boy Says:

Another trolling from The Cult leader, this is thread about Nole and his schedule and guess what was the name of the trol who came here first, before his Mini-Me trolled in, to tell us how weak and not worth watching is Toronto masters since certain one, who won his last GS 16 slams ago, is not playing. Nobody was talking about him until you arrived to per on Toronto masters and players who are playing.
What else can you be but troll, since you keep trolling Nole fans posts, of course you are sore loser, I don’t go around waiting for your posts and trolling you and other fedfanatcis, couldn’t care less about bunch of losers.


Wog Boy Says:

“^^^ “..to pee on Toronto masters and players..”


Willow Says:

I Think you would have to say with no Roger, Rafa, Andy, that Novak would be the safe bet for another title in Toronto, unless he is still recovering from the W Querry loss, which is doubtful, interesting to see how he bounces back ….


Daniica Says:

novak preparing for og in rio with his younger brother djordje http://imgur.com/gallery/lhItc


MADMAX Says:

Hey trashing bickle..”says Federer..Toronto. .one of my favourite tournaments on the calendar”,he didn’t say it was his favourite,it’s CALLED diplomacy- mixed with truth telling and a cup of loyalty to the tournament organiser.

Didn’t really think you needed it spelling out travis, someone of your high intelligence But then I guess weird minds an’all. Really you don’t have to lay it on thick with the platitudes travis. ..Fed won the tournament twice already and reached 3 finals, so I just loved the fact you missed that little number out, I guess his successes burn your fingers (and other body parts);right.


MADMAX Says:

and Wogboy, don’t fool yourself. This is not a strong field for Novak? How can you say that without the top 2-5 being out of the tournament?

You are fooling yourself big time.

It is a cakewalk to the trophy for Novak. Simple.

Try to stop with the lies. Hopefully Novak will do well in the tournament and win, being world number 1, that is what is expected, but none of the silly talk Wogboy. I think you are taking too many brandies these days. It isn’t good to mix alcohol with the sun.


MADMAX Says:

AndyMira, oh, THAT old chestnut!

Unless and until Novak beats the slam count, there really is not any argument for GOAT.


Willow Says:

Without going down that road too much, Novak still has two other all time greats to surpass when it comes to GS count yet, and one of them is still an active player, and thats before getting anywhere near Rogers GS count ….


Willow Says:

Danica are you our usual Danica, as i noticed your name is spelt with two IIs, just curious ? ….
Anyway ive seen this before, and its certainly not of Novak and his brother, its rather distasteful, and something a troll would put up, not a Novak fan, if your a different Danica using this to poke fun at Novak then you should be ashamed of yourself, however if your our usual Danica thats made a mistake with the link, then please accept my apologies ? ….


Giles Says:

Daniica. WTH is that sh*t you posted? Do you mind? Geez!!!


chrisford1 Says:

Wasn’t Danica, it was a troll using her name. Two of the GIFs in the link are NSFW. I say distasteful, but funny.
Other Nole GIFs contained in it are just funny.

So much for my theory that linking any videos or GIFs on TX automatically triggers moderation.


Willow Says:

Im not a prude, and i like a good laugh, as much as the next person, but some things stretch the boundaries of good taste, and this is one of them, certainly not my type of humour, each to their own i suppose ….


Travis Bickle Says:

OK,
I’ll state the obvious here!

First, it is amazing how many poor losers appear here under fake nicknames and show their hate to the best player in the planet, Novak Djokovic. Even posting some unflattering photoshopped images of Novak (although I admit they are funny) and saying that him with his brother, etc… All understandable, since Fedal fans are REALLY suffering in their misery last 5 years as Novak is destroying Fedal legacy and breaking every record there is! Seeing this, I actually enjoy it and hope for more of that to come, because I now every time fake nicknames and photoshopped Novak images appear on Tennis X, it’s a sign that Fedal misery and Novak’s greatness has reached another level – LOVE IT !!!

But the most puzzling thing today came from our frequent poster Willow! She asks a legit and super nice & polite Novak fan Danica if that was indeed her that posted that photoshopped Novak images link saying that was him and his brother George practising for Rio!?!
Two questions here, based on Willow’s actions:
1. How spectacularly stupid/dumb/slow you have to be to think someone like Danica would post that link about Novak and say that was him and his brother????!!!!!
2. Perhaps it’s not stupidity, and it was an intentional attempt of planting a link under Danica’s name (albeit with slightly modified extra “i”) and then appear to be “nice” and say that link is distasteful, etc.

In any case, I admit I also enjoyed this attempt of planting this link under poor Danica’s name, and especially Giles’ and Willow’s replies afterward like “Danica, how could you post that” and “you should be ashamed of that” , etc…

Also note that no Nole fan scorned “fake Danica” about that link ;-)

Love this! Love to expose truly sick folks here!
And especially love witnessing Djoker making history knowing what kind of “damage” it does to haters!


chrisford1 Says:

Happy (as the organizers certainly are!!) that Djokovic is committing to Toronto and Cincinnati on each side of his Olympic time bloc.

Marabella is perfect, it seems, for a working vacation. Work part of the day to hit the courts to get in the hardcourt groove, then beach, concerts, time with friends and family. London rags misidentified Jelena Djokovics sister Maria as her in photos and also Daniella Hantuchova – a very likable (and gorgeous) friend of both of them.

And all when Mrs D is looking exceptionally photogenic and hot at the moment!!

Some Djoker and Danny pics, 1st with Stephan:

The sister in law, Maria Ristic, mis-ID’d as the wife:

The real Mrs Dj, at the Seal concert in Marabella London rags had the blonde to the right listed as his wife.

Not that Djokovic ignored a group of 6 female fans, who waved him over as he walked on the beach. It is very important to spend time with fans. Especially certain fans..

chrisford1 Says:

Man. I don’t get it. I posted some pics of Djokovics vacation in Marabella and got hit with “awaiting moderation” , but NSFW GIFs of poor taste – him pleasuring Miley Cyrus with a tennis racket and him as a deviant bum behind a dumpster -
No moderation!!
I will not get upset. Wog Boy got furious when he got stuck in moderation for some reason, I just shrug and think there is no rhyme or reason to it. Maybe Sean can explain it some time.

Anyhow – If anyone is interested in some of Nole’s Marabella pics, my post may appear later, but will appear back at 4:37pm.


Travis Bickle Says:

cf1,

Obviously there’s an easy solution – among regular/benign vacation pick you want to post, sprinkle few picks of Novak pleasuring someone with a tennis racquet and/or masturbating behind a dumpster – those are “moderation-proof”.

Just make sure it is Novak, those kind of picks of Roger & Rafa will likely not be published…


Wog Boy Says:

Madmax,

You sound like a cranky old woman that is missing on morning one or doesn’t get it at all, you have ti pay more attention on your sex life (even if you have to pay for it) since that is very important for mental health, and your mental health is rapidly deteriorating, hurry up, clock is ticking for you. Just having a wet dreams when you dream about Roger is not enough, you need a real thing!


Wog Boy Says:

“Daniica” is same poster that comes under another moniker “Adolf” and is “komsija” and troll. There is no surprise he took “Adolf” moniker, since they were most loyal Hitler servants. He is nether Nole fan nor Serbian, though he speaks Serbian, they never new for any other language.

Agree with TB, how on earth anybody can even think that it was real Danica, and sheepishly asking if that is Danica?


Willow Says:

I Was defending Novak, whomever it was is neither here nor there to me, i just thought it was a sick thing to post, so thats why i spoke up, dear god wish i hadnt bothered now (sigh), when peoples twisted little minds would think, that your only doing it because you have some sort of ulterior motive, jeez you cant win ….


Wog Boy Says:

CF1,

You are right, I was furious, but more at myself for getting sucked in and losing my temper, but on the other hand it was good to step back and see those internet cowards, once they figured out that I was under moderation, having a go at me knowing I won’t be able to reply, they suddenly became cocky same happened with TB and his “friends” here when he was under moderation.
Put it this way, I can live without TX, this is fun for me and to kill my time when I am in the office (which is in my home) or in the hotel room when I am away (which is quite often) and saves me the money that I would spend on my mistress if I am to have one, since that is very expensive hobby these days (one night stand is acceptable though;), but I would be worried for my “friends” here wellbeing if they are to be banned on TX, since internet is their only life and pleasure though virtual one.


Daniica Says:

wog boy what do u like ur mistress to do to u?…are u into bondage and disciline,people calling mistresses today every whooker they pick up from escort service but aint like that …..ne seri prdonja wog boy ja sam pravi srbin i to puno veci od tebe…ti si obicna jajara i nemam blage veze o sportu ili tenisu…..by the way i am real danica


Wog Boy Says:

Adolf,
Your “babo” is calling you.


Okiegal Says:

Tennis X has gone to the dogs……..


AndyMira Says:

@Madmax 1:25pm..chill sis!I happened to agree with you!


AndyMira Says:

@Okie..did you mean to say”dog fight”?


chrisford1 Says:

While I am awaiting a “moderation” decision, I’ll see if the auto censor lets me post two pics. Somehow the Brit tabloids messed up and labeled at one time or another Daniella Hantuchova, Maria Ristic (sis), and some gal in white at the Seal concert as Mrs Djokovic.
So part of my 4:37 post was to show Mrs Dj was looking pretty darn good and wonder how the tabloids messed up..

danica Says:

Willow,
this impostor was not me, of course. Seeing that somebody used and misspelled my name, immediately raised a red flag so that I didn’t even bother opening the link. I am glad I didn’t.

But what can I say? Silly people with no life.

I am just curious how the site allows something like this. Hello staff?


AndyMira Says:

@Dani..don’t worry about a fake one..he @ she is not even come close even to the dirt under your fingernail[which i don't believe there is any!]..

#SaintDani


Okiegal Says:

@Mira…..no I meant it has gone to the dogs. That is an old saying here in the states. It just means that the conversations on the forum are low life and disgusting. That crap regarding Novak…..how that got through mediation I will never know. That is the second time that nasty link has gone through…….ridiculous!!


Daniica Says:

yea shean randal and other moderators had break time when not big events on calendar….so its great time for troling and posting cool links with peder djokovic and to stir fire betwen those so called tennis lovers….wog boy guzis li sta?….i ja sam u melbournu isto…ajde na jednu partiju tenisa da te razbucam…..dont like people comenting about sport and acting smart when they dont have any skills to lay themself….hitler bless u wog boy///and u danica plz stop using my name


Okiegal Says:

Lot of posters on TX aren’t very original…..if they were, they could come up with their own moniker w/o being a copy cat of someone else’s. This happens once in awhile…..what up wid dat???


Okiegal Says:

Daniel Says:

Interesting matches ahead. Djoko may play Isner Quarters and Raonic semis. Considering he hasn’t a lot of match latelly those are the kind of matches that best f three is dangerous. Inner likes playing in NA HC and Raonic not playing OG may be more driven, backing up his Wimby rup.

IF Djoko passes these two tests can’t see him losing in finals, to anybody else from that section. Only the other Big 4 can beat him in finals, and that is a big if.


Willow Says:

Danica @ 8.32 pm July 23rd, at first i thought maybe you had made a mistake with the link you meant to put up, so my apologies, what i didnt get or take to kindly to was posters taking a pot shot at me when all i did was defend Novak, i dont get it i mean why for goodness sake ? ….


chrisford1 Says:

It is funny in a way that the obscene link was not flagged by auto censor, but my pic links of Djokovic at the beach in Marabella were.
Anyways, I guess “moderation” has been accomplished and they are now up for all to see at 4:37PM yesterday.


AndyMira Says:

@Okie 10:54pm..oh!is it?Yeah okie..this is the 2nd time the same fake poster got through with distateful content..and what amazed me,it got through sean the 2nd time!And to toy with novak and Dani’s good name of all thing!Urgh..you right..ridiculous!


AndyMira Says:

@Madmax 1:25pm…i didn’t know a 47 years old is an “old chestnut!”..ha!ha!ha!ha!


Giles Says:

It really is so sad that the rif raf have taken over this site since the rise of the faker. Hope this all ends soon. Sick of it.


Margot Says:

Why would anyone think the lovely Danica, tx’s own saint, had turned into a raving loony overnight?
People play all sorts of nasty games on the net. In the immortal words of “Hill Street Blues” : Take care out there 😒


Willow Says:

Margot i actually thought at first maybe Danica had posted a wrong link by mistake, till i saw the mis spelling of her name, and ive actually already apologized for any misunderstanding, we are all human and make mistakes, so i dont understand the need to beat this to the ground ….


J-Kath Says:

Danica: Hope you are back from Germany.
