Djokovic SF streak..

Nole has made 10 consecutive Grand Slam Semi-Finals. It is a remarkable achievement and shows just how consistently excellent he has played. How long will this streak last? What are your thoughts?

I don't see it ending this year unless he faces a healthy Rafa at the QF of the French Open...

5 more years. Mass crying over the world shortly after, by Olderer fans.

As opposed to Noserer making 23 consecutive SF's, facing absolute clowns in progress.

Re: Djokovic SF streak..

Highlander has 2 consecutive SF's streak going right now , I think the better question to ask is who can stop him from utter dominance - Tomic perhaps?

10 consecutive SFs is already a tie for second with Lendl. Make the SF here and he's second best ever all by himself. That is no mean achievement. As for how long it lasts, impossible to tell at this stage. I'm not betting against him anytime soon but you can't really see far into the future with confidence. He could also get troubles of some kind, mono, knees or something else, and even if he doesn't one can't really tell how long he'll be on top.

Murray managed five in a row. That is better than many. Sampras never did better than three. Still, a far cry off Djokovic' ten.

Yes it is impressive. Will be interesting to see how close he comes to the GOAT's record. My guess is not very close at all.

Sorry, but with Topspindoctor back, you're not allowed to call him like that or to troll poorly, better let the master speak and you go play with the little boys.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.
(Actually 2nd)

Re: Djokovic SF streak..

Surface homogenisation has made such a joke out of the tour.

Weak as hell era too. Zero chance for the Djoker to make this many consecutive semis in the 2004-2007 era.

yeah, I back you on that.

I miss court variety. Court homogenisation is destroying tennis.
