How many US Opens will Djokovic finish his career with?

Odd that despite how much better than the rest Novak is meant to be on Hard Courts he has the same number of US Opens as Nadal, Murray and Del Potro. Has lost in finals to Federer, Murray and Nadal at the US Open.

How many more will he win? A surface that suits him a lot and yet in the end he's not won that much so far.

Re: How many US Opens will Djokovic finish his career with?

I think he might get a 2nd one, but it wont be easy. He lost to all of his great rivals in finals now.

It is pretty amazing that we have 5 different Usopen winners the last 5 years in this very dominated era.

Could we get someone like Berdych next year?

I doubt it, but it would be fun.

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

3 USO finals lost, same as Sampras, Tilden, and McLoughlin. I think he'll win at least 1 more.

1. Murray wins Wimbledon 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by Querrey. Thanks Querrey!

2. Murray wins Olympic Gold for the second time after Djokovic is blue shelled by Del Potro. Thanks Del Potro!

Re: How many US Opens will Djokovic finish his career with?

Technically US Open surface does suit him, however, AO surface suits him much more. He likes the slower high bouncing hardcourts. Despite what everyone says, IMO I still think US Open is the quickest of the 4 slams right now. Wimbledon is perhaps close, but movement on grass is much more the issue for Novak perhaps. So his US Open record isn't really that surprising considering yes, he is better than everyone else on hardcourts, but against players like Federer and Murray, if they were all to play their best, Novak would lose to them more often than not. AO, however, obviously a different story.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Better than 1-0.

So many fanboys to troll, so little time.

Favourite tennis matches: 2011 US Open Final & 2012 Australian Open Final, starring Novak Djokovic & Rafael Nadal, showing us just how far science can take humanity.

The US Open Final was especially enjoyable, with 'Why are there white spots all over my body?' Djokovic and 'Why am I sweating boils?' Nadal embarked on a titanic battle, concluding with the inferior player, Nadal, entering a sort of delirious state of psychosis. This allowed him to, while showing very little fatigue, consume inhuman amounts of energy, before he literally ran his legs from underneath him. This is truly the stuff dreams are made of.

Re: How many US Opens will Djokovic finish his career with?

He's still young and has been the best HC player over the past few years. So he'll probably win at least one more, hard to say how many though because things can change so quickly and turn on the smallest of margins. After Fed won a 5th straight US Open it seemed almost inevitable that he'd win a 6th at some stage but we know how that has turned out.

Two USOs like Agassi.

Four runner up places like Agassi too.

He will win like 5 AOs.

Nine slams is my prediction as well.

Don't think he will win wimby again. That was a fluke.
