2008 Nadal vs current Djokovic - French Open

Who do you think would win in a match at the French Open between Nadal, given his form going into the FO in 2008, or Djokovic's currently?

I love attacking tennis

FEDERER - DEL POTRO - DIMITROV
Tsonga Haas Nishikori Wawrinka
Cilic Djokovic Gulbis Kyrgios

Hewitt Soderling Roddick

Re: 2008 Nadal vs current Djokovic - French Open

Let's just first see if Djokovic beats the 2011 Nadal, who is apparently so terrible these days he falls out in the first round... oh, wait.

Re: 2008 Nadal vs current Djokovic - French Open

Better question would be "Who is level is/was higher, 2011 Nole or 2008 Nadal?".

Re: 2008 Nadal vs current Djokovic - French Open

If 2011 Nadal plays 2011 Djokovic four times and still loses ALL FOUR i have to say that

2008 Nadal vs current Djokovic in one match= Djokovic wins. But if they played 4 matches 2008 Nadal might take 1 at least, maybe even 2 with some luck

Re: 2008 Nadal vs current Djokovic - French Open

Er...Djokovic wins hands down. 2008 Nadal ain't that different from 2011 Nadal. Same moonballs, same butt picking, still no plan B. But Nole's game has picked up big time.

Re: 2008 Nadal vs current Djokovic - French Open

nadal's performance in 2008 will never be performed at RG...no man can play EVER on that level, and I'm also afraid that rafa can't reach that level again..I would be pleased if he can reach 60% of 2008 Rg level...

17-8

10 and counting

Djokovic in damp conditions, Nadal in hotter drier conditions.

Re: 2008 Nadal vs current Djokovic - French Open

Nadal for sure, in 4, maybe even 3, simply because the roland Garros clay surface suits him better than any other clay court!

Re: 2008 Nadal vs current Djokovic - French Open

2011 Nole vs 2008 Nadal at RG, well no chance for Nole. Rafa in 3. Nole played like his current form for one set, and still couldn't win it in 2008. 2008 Rafa was a machine at RG.
