Will Djokovic end his career with a negative or positive slam final ratio?

Simple question. At the moment he's 6-6 which is 50%, neutral.

I think it'll be negative. From now on he'll lose more slam finals against Nadal than he'll win and against Murray it'll be about evens. Obviously if he faces anyone else in a slam final he'll likely win of course but I don't see that happening too often.

Positive.
He is way too good of a player not to.

By the way, what's Feds, Murrays and Rafas slam final ratio ?

Re: Will Djokovic end his career with a negative or positive slam final ratio?

I say positive, but barely. I believe Nadal has now moved past Federer in having the best winning % in GS finals amongst active players to have made multiple finals (ie not Delpo who only has the one winning final). Sampras has the best of the greats with a 14-4 record.

14.

Slam finals conversion ratio for active players:

del Potro - 100%

Nadal - 72,2%

Federer - 70,8%

Hewitt and Djokovic - 50%

Murray - 28,6%

Rest of the tour - 0%


I'll let people make their own conclusions from this.

Re: Will Djokovic end his career with a negative or positive slam final ratio?

Someone from the very beginning said Nole is the Agassi of this era, a versatile player with superior returning. Top-tier talent who is the second best of his era ( he is to Nadal what Agassi to Sampras although he has done much better versus his career rival than AA). The similarities are there (both Goated in AO), Agassi ended with 8-7 Slam finals records, i expect Nole to end with something like 9-8 W/L in Slam Finals..

It's hard to say. I guess fans will vote positive and people who dislike him will vote negative

I am not sure. Him and Rafa are 3-3 in slam finals, him and Murray are 2-2 in slam finals. 0-1 against Roger, but I am not sure he will make another slam final. Hope I am wrong. I predict some more GS final battles between them. He has to get himself out of his slump though and start getting his mental strength back

What about Murray? I still think negative. I like him, but if Nadal, Federer and Djokovic play their best tennis I don't think he can match it, even though he has improved a lot. I still don't think he is on their level, but things can change

Those two have asterisks ... I mean who did he win against to get those slams? Exactly. He played Sait Djokovic of Serbia in those slam finals... that mean gives and gives and gives. He is like the second coming of Jesus but in tennis

Djokovic is 15-22, Agassi was 14-20, so not that big a difference actually. The comparison is sound though, though Agassi screwed up his career time and time again from 93 to 98, whereas Nole has been there at the top nonstop since 2007.
