Djoker: GOAT as saving MPs

Noserer: GOAT at losing after having MPs (4 matches alone in 2010, one of them being to Monfils indoors )

Re: Is Novak Djokovic now the MP saving GOAT?

How about Boris Becker? I remember when he was down match point in the second round the year he won the U.S open. I remember he won a lot of very close matches at Wimbledon.

Federer: Future number one.

Fed vs Rafa

Wimbledon: 7-2
U.s open: 5-2
AO: 4-1
FO 1-9
WTF: 6-0
Weeks at number one: 302-140(about)

Really no contest

Re: Is Novak Djokovic now the MP saving GOAT?

MTF should give this award to Novak, although Djokovic should probably be punished for driving his fans crazy too. darn, learn how to properly win or lose matches. No, we hate 125 hours matches/endless sets, We dislike you being down and suddenly waking up winning. Nole you suck man. I hate drama. Can't you just lose or win like all other normal tennis players? Please and thank you.

Re: Is Novak Djokovic now the MP saving GOAT?

for sure by far of the last generation of players..... but its also tough because if you look at Novak pre 2010 he definitely wouldn't get this trophy. for the latter stages of his carreer he's been sick though, as far as just swinging with no pressure when down matchpoint. it's weird, almost unbelievable, like he got a magic wish granted to be able to save all match points of opponents by a genie (at least in matches that were going pretty closely)

The Federer saves were amazing though that DJkovic managed

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

Yes

Anyway Nole has been insanely clutch this last couple of years, gotta hand it to him.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V
