Will Nole ever beat a quality opponent on grass/clay?

Honest question. Djokovic's best win on clay came against Robredo at Estoril in 2007. Hardly impressive.

His only quality grass court win came against Hewitt at Wimbledon last year, but Hewitt has just one grass court title in the past 5 years; not really a great grass court player anymore.

That resume, or lack of, speaks two words to me; One dimensional.

Nole will never win another slam.

Nole will never threaten Nadal's #2 ranking.

Nole will never threaten Federer's #1 ranking.

Anything else?

Please try to stay on topic. None of those things, however true they are, are relevant to this discussion. Thanks.

Geez, the Djokotards aren't very 'bright' either.

That's too bad, because I've already tried to simplify it for you.

Put it in form of faces, faking actions and punches to the chest. That's the only way the Fakertards get it.

Re: Will Nole ever beat a quality opponent on grass/clay?

No
Hewitt victory is irrelevant. Beating hewitt is like beating a top 50 player.(hewitt is no longer the player he used to be in 2001-2004 season.)
Everbody knows Robredo is a fluky top ten player.
i'll bet he will lose to kevin anderson or any other big server on grass. if he faces them. He needs some luck of the draw at wimbledon. i'm pretty sure he will be praying for average players like murray,wawrinka,baghdatis etc in his section.

Ivo Karlovic
David Nalbandian
