Does Djokovic have the game/potential to win a Grand Slam?

I'm talking about winning the AO, USO, FO, and Wimbledon.

I don't think he'll win all four in one year or over the course of his career.

He does. Grand slam? That's a tough one. Who was the last guy to win grand slam (all 4 in one year)?

Or even a career grand slam (there haven't been many men who have won that either...I think the last one was Agassi).

Re: Does Djokovic have the game/potential to win a Grand Slam?

To win a Grand Slam, yes. He has the capability to win any of them. The Calendar Grand Slam, no. The Career Grand Slam, yes.

Will he win a slam, yes.

Calendar slam, no.

Career, highly doubt it.

Here is the info from Wikipedia:
Calendar Year Grand Slam (four majors in one calendar year)

Men's Singles
Don Budge (1938)
Rod Laver (1962 • 1969)

Re: Does Djokovic have the game/potential to win a Grand Slam?

If you saw his game of USOPEN FINAL. You got to know that he had huge chance to win it. But He got to have GS Final Experience, Now he got one Final. But not enough, which Roger has much much more than him. So, start learning the expeiences.

He absolute should win 5 or 6 more GS in his career

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic and Mikael Ymer

Thiem will be No 1 by Dec 2017
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Sep 2018
Mikael Ymer will be No 3 by Dec 2018
Alexander Zverev will be No 3 by Dec 2017

Novak Djokovic will have a career similar to that of Andre Agassi.

Re: Does Djokovic have the game/potential to win a Grand Slam?

He has the potential to win a few majors.

He did have seven set points to take sets one and two at the final of the US Open.

Just couldnt put them away.

Imagine if he was leading 2 sets to love (by winning the set-points) against Federer, and the winner could have been completley different.
