Re: Do you consider Novak Djokovic as a legend in the game?

His complete and utter Domination of nadull the disgusting moonballer is legendary ,,, nadull is the first player in history to lose 3 straight GS finals,, if this keeps up he could have the worst losing streak for all-time greats,

The law of nature,only the strong survive.




THE GREAT TACTICAL RIVALRY OF THE OPEN ERA
FEDERER 10 VS TONI NADAL 20
ADVANTAGE TONI NADAL
RAPHEAL NADULL,A PRETTY FACE & MUSCLE
NOTHING MORE

Fed 2 nadull 13 fed is nadull CLAY TURKEY. THE REAL ERA 2003-2010.

Re: Do you consider Novak Djokovic as a legend in the game?

The way he took down Nadal after Nadal had his best year will be talked about for years to come.

7 straight wins over a legend in his prime is very serious historically and with 3 straight slams and 4 straight masters, 2 of the masters against the best clay courter of all time on clay.
He also beat Fed and Murray at slams to get at Nadal.


I have a strong feeling there's more to come.

Not a legend yet.

Federer

Del Potro

Wilander has 7 Majors, while Becker and Edberg has 6. And that is tennis, Becker and Edberg considered alot bigger legends than Wilander. Becker is one of the Wimbledon's all-time greats like Edberg is one of all-tennis greats. He can tight on RG with them but he will need more GS to actually surpass them. I think Rafa will atleast win one Major this season (RG and one the other two).

He is very close to become a legend.

Re: Do you consider Novak Djokovic as a legend in the game?

He is not a legend but he is a more succesful player that Hewitt, Murray and Roddick put together! 10 masters titles 5 slams 1 tour finals and a davis cup! not a legend but he is rapidly carving his place in history, that is fact!

Novak Djokovic [SIZE=6].

6 Australian Opens
1 French Open
3 Wimbledons
2 [COLOR=Cyan]US Opens[/

You can't really call me bitter for stating the obvious. He has 5 slams, big deal. Lendl, Borg, Sampras, Federer and co. have 8-16 slams. Notice the BIG difference there? Djokovic has a long way to go before he can be called a legend.
murray has 0 ! still think he,ll win more than Djokovic?

Re: Do you consider Novak Djokovic as a legend in the game?

One more GS title will end this debate. Already most ppl consider him as a legend in the game as the poll shows.

Needless question, of course he is. And he will hopefully keep adding to that legend.

Probably one slam away. Becker and Edberg are legends and they have six.

Re: Do you consider Novak Djokovic as a legend in the game?

With 6 slams he will be up there with few of greatest players ever, also he has many other accomplishments that shold be mentioned, i think if he will make USO QF he will tie Lendl´s QF streak record which is best after Roger´s, than i think he is youngest guy to reach all slam SF´s in open era and many more, hope 1 day he will win that RG trophy and really be among greatest ever without no doubts.

Re: Do you consider Djokovic a legend in the game?

Of course Djokovic is actually a legend.

And he can only increase his achievements in order to be in the select group of the greatest of all time.

But that´s very dificult. Anyway, if he stops winning right now and retires, he will remain as a legend.

Come on, he is not Rafter, Ríos, Kafelnikov, etc.
