"...'All respect to Andy, I like him as a person and as a player,'
Djokovic added. 'He=92s done a lot in the last couple months, and he=92s a
very talented player and we can expect him to win some Grand Slams in

I don't think that Djokovic said that - I saw the interview and I'm
sure he said "you cannot put him as the favorite", not "one of the
favourites".

He is such a jerk. I guess he really has some good excuse for putting
himself as a favorite in last year's slam before he won it. He had then
reached one GS final (USO 2007), just like Andy now. Of course Andy is
one of the favorites. He has performed much better the last months than
Djokovic did last year.

PS.

That's not the quote at all. Where did the "(one of)" come from?
Djokovic didn't say that.
