Djokovic and Nadal

Have they failed. They are young and have a lot of tennis left but weren't they supposed to dethrone Federer with force? But now its Federer who is still winning more than them. Injuries have been the problem of both players. Obviously if they were both 100%, they would be taking slams. But something is wrong with both of them.

The supposed Fed killers are now being killed and now who will threaten Federer.

As a fan of both it hurts me to say this.

No. They are just not as good as Federer, never have.

Re: Djokovic and Nadal

Nobody on tour is as good as Federer. 15 slams and 23 SF in a row. He is just too consistent.

Re: Djokovic and Nadal

They are challenging him, which is what they were expected to do. Only the most diehard fans expected Fed to be crushed. Hate all you want, the guy is just too good.

Re: Djokovic and Nadal

The GOAT was merciful enough to gift 7 slams to these pretenders, as even the greatest ones feel the pain coming from these mere mortals...now it's payback time and the God of tennis is keeping his peers in check come slam time

Re: Djokovic and Nadal

nadal hasnt failed at all. 2008 was incredible, what he did (to federer). maybe he wasnt smart enough later on with scheduling but even if he was it cant be said he failed at anything.

djokovic also didnt "fail" but perhaps he'd achieve a bit more by now had he been smarter with 'ways of the tour'. mainly how he got entangled into off-court stuff and bad-mouthing. that definitely reflected (badly) on him, as is evident in his recent form. we should have in mind the burden he is carrying with wacky family and health related stuff so all in all, hes 'more than good but not great'. Id say.

Re: Djokovic and Nadal

Nadal didn't fail. he did good. it was forseeable that his body would eventually pay tribute to his style. Djokovic doesn't have the match-up advantage over Fed that Nadal enjoys. Fed is plain simple better then Novak.
Djoker seems to be a rather fragile nature. He wouldn't call that failure, tough. he is stil young and does not face any serious health issues. his time can still come, but he won't challange Federer. Fed is the GOAT comparing players to him is unfair for the other players.

doesn't he? he has breathing issues and generally seems to be made of softer stuff than Fed (then again, isn't everyone?). even if we ignore his retirements, which may or may not have been necessary, he has finished lots of matches (win or lose) while looking clearly spent. same story today. not badmouthing him or anything, i quite like him, really, but it's pretty clear his natural stamina isn't up there with the best.

agreed with the second part. he will surely win more slams, but Federer will most likely be done by then.

Re: Djokovic and Nadal

How is Djokovic classified along with Nadal as a 'fed destroyer'?

He's a pansy anyway. He seems to have grown a pair now, but there are people ahead of him (Del Potro, Murray)

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

because when he was new to teh top Federer hated playing him.

Djokovic went down when he softened his image in an attempt to get more liked.

How did Federer hate playing him? He's always pretty much owned him, except for one occasion.

Re: Djokovic and Nadal

He was always more on edge when playing Djokovic. Against Nadal, he iknew he was dominated so he didn't get agitated. But vs Djokovic, he could not stand the new guy giving him serious trouble. He didn't think much of Novak if you remember his comments about the young Novak

Djokovic was never that far up.

He would'be beaten a 08-AO like Federer at the 2007/08/09 US Open as well, in which case he would have more than one slam by now.

Re: Djokovic and Nadal

end of 07 and start of 08 were when djoker made his place in fed legacy. it was a major hick up for fed back than (so it seemed). up until delpo won uso last year, it was only nadal on clay and grass and djoker on hard courts making any wave there for fed.
