Will Djokovic ever beat Nadal on clay?

we all know that djokovic is a much better hardcourt player than nadal,but can he ever beat him on clay? i think he can,but he has to catch nadal on a tired streak,just like federer did in the finals on Hamburg in 07. Or do you guys think Djokovic will never beat Nadal on clay in his entire career?

Re: Will Djokovic ever beat Nadal on clay?

I think he can, but to do that he will have to serve really well, something he hasn't been doing lately and be very consistent. On grass I think he can win anytime, he just hasn't done yet, but this is year match showed he can: he served bad, wasted a set point and had a slow start in the 2nd set, and it ended 7-6 7-5, pretty close.

Re: Will Djokovic ever beat Nadal on clay?

They're young and he'll have plenty of opportunities. Time is certainly on his side in that regard. So, yes. Probably.

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Will Djokovic ever beat Nadal on clay?

Given his age and his talent, I think he could beat him one or two times on the surface.

Re: Will Djokovic ever beat Nadal on clay?

Perhaps yeah, he'll never have an advantage in such a match-up but its possible at some point in his career he can score a win or 2 over Nadal on clay.

Federer's done it theres no reason why Nole can't once he's more experienced on the surface.

Go Andy!
