Djokovic can play on any speed with zero resistance in that era except Roger and Nadal on clay he would make every one............2003-2007 is probably the weakest era in the last 20 years.........Hell mugs like Nalbandian,Haas are hailed as supreme players just because they were the only one except Rafa to challenge Federer......Give me a break..........Also court speed was almost the same back then in reverse......Everything was fast.......AO,US Open,Wimbledon,Masters evens except clay?How is that fair?Please tell me

When did you start watching tennis? 2003-2007 was slower than 1990-2002. If you want to call that unfair, it is not because it was too fast. The slower courts of today has nothing to do with fairness, it's simply what the powers that be thinks the audience wants. It would be just as fair to play on super fast surfaces.

Yep. Who knows how many Career slams we will see in the future.

As for the SF streak, at this rate, Djokovic could end up breaking Federer's streak.

I know they were slower than the 90s but it was still similar in speed as is today.....Just 10 years ago it was all similar fast now similar slow.....

the courts in that time were not similars like today`s courts....

us open was much more faster and the same with australia and masters cup for example , even wimbledon was more fast befores that the organizers changed the original grass..

this era is strong????? always the same guys fighting for slams and in this era federer was the second more old nº1 in tennis history , that is strong????? or old players like ferrer in the best moment of his career?????

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

you are right dude it's not like a semi retired Agassi was world number 1 at the age of 33-34 whatever and pushed Fed to his limits in 2005 US Open final............Fed's draws in his era were a joke.......

What are you trying to say? 2004-2007 was the strongest era ever because the GOAT was in his prime. And that is why Djokovic could not pass the R16 at the AO.
