Djokovic and Australian Open

Definitely he loves playing at this hard court surface and as a whole there is no doubt IMO that he is most comfortable at this grand slam. Now a two time winner, and let's not forget that in both 2009, and 2010 it was factors outside his game which caused him to lose/forfeit. So my question is, could the Australian Open become for Djokovic what the FO is for Nadal, or Wimbledon was for Fed so many years?

I know there are a lot more good hard court players than there are on clay and grass, but he handled some of the best hard court players this year with relative ease.

Re: Djokovic and Australian Open

Djokovic is neither Federer nor Nadal. Stop thinking that every good player can win 10+ slams...

Re: Djokovic and Australian Open

No. He hasn't been as consistent as Rafa has been at RG and Rog was at Wimbledon.

In fact I will argue that in the last few years, Rog has been more consistent at Aus Open than Djokovic has been.

Yes. Djokovic and heat... This is his problem and his allergy. (where did he withdraw due to this? madrid?)

Never ever give up

Re: Djokovic and Australian Open

I don't think Nole will win 6 or 7 AOs....

Very true.
He seems to be just another blinded Serb.

i mean of course he has the rights to cheer for Nole, it´s his countryman.
But don´t show your love to him in such ridiculous arguments.

Re: Djokovic and Australian Open

Oh no, did I hurt the feelings of the ever so touchy bandwagoners here that support Nadal and Federer. Sorry for not knowing what my "reality" is, please experts, do teach me, just like many of you claimed Djokovic was done, he peaked early, Murray will have a better career, he can only beat a Fed with mono at a grand slam etc etc.

I love how he keeps defying the haters.

Re: Djokovic and Australian Open

I think will be heat in Australia. Djoko will win maybe 2-3 title.

Never ever give up

No, you were just factually wrong.

How can I be factually wrong in a HYPOTHETICAL question?

Because your argument was based on the past record of Nole (of whom I am a fan btw!). Past records are not hypothetical. Last 5 years, Roger has more points at AO than Nole has at AO. I would have supported your proposition if Nole had reached finals at AO09 and AO10.
