Organisers to encourage more Djokovic-Nadal finals

We have known for a while now that organisers have actively encouraged Fedal finals. After the epic OZ and US open finals I suspect the event organisers especially at the majors are going to create conditions that favour a Nada-Djokovic final. We might be seeing the end of Fedal finals, that would be fantastic.

At least we won't have to watch Federer shank backhands on every single point. Nadal is a much better fighter that Federer. I suspect Nadal will lose most of his matches against Djokovic but Djokovic will be made to work for sure. Their matches are more fun.

Nadal is a better fighter but Federer tries more new things against Nadal every time they play, more fun to watch Federer rush to the net, hit impossible halfvolleys, dropshots, different slices and angles with his backhand than Nadal moonballing to Djokovic's backhand even if those backhand shanks are quite ugly.

Hope we get to see Fed-Djokovic finals, those are the best.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Always a Fed and Murray fan. Neutral towards the Djoker in the past, sometimes liked him and sometimes disliked him. If he continues his demolition jobs of Nadal he will have my loyalty and support.

Agree with you on the Feder-Djokovic finals. There will never happen though. If Federer is in Nadal's half we all know what will happen there. The best we can get are Federer-Djokivic Semis. We have had many of them over the years. 2 of the 3 last year were classic. The OZ open semi was ok but the French and US opens were sheer class.

Re: Organisers to encourage more Djokovic-Nadal finals

I actually agree. Fedal used to be the must-see match but Djokovic's current domination of Nadal has suddenly risen to the top as tennis' most interesting plot line . I expect to see more Fedal semis....that way organizers get to kill THREE birds with one stone: they get the "classic" Fedal match, Djokovic for all intents and purposes gets to waltz into the final, and we get another chapter of the "Can Rafa solve the Djoker riddle?"

Re: Organisers to encourage more Djokovic-Nadal finals

Jesus, even if I wasn't a fan of Murray, he has to step up. Him or someone else(why is there no one else?!). Of Fed, Nadal, and Nole, only the Nole-Fed matches are remotely interesting or exciting to watch.

FEd Djoko matches are best in my opinion.

Re: Organisers to encourage more Djokovic-Nadal finals

Djokovic beats Nadal on all surfaces, at least Federer can beat Nadal on fast courts.

Djokovic-Nadal finals became to be boring, Fedal is also boring. We need more Federer-Djokovic finals.

I disagree with this. I think that of the Top 4, Murray is the player who troubles Novak most. If he gets Murray in his half, Novak won't be "waltzing" into any final.

Corporate elements and not genuine love seem to rule the day. Their time will come.
