Golden Slam should not be out of the scope of his abilities some day... but for now, I'd be quite happy with one GS title, a few GS finals and most definitely the Olympic gold medal (in your face, Roger! :))

No, a Golden Grand Slam is not a career Grand Slam. A Golden Grand slam is a calendar year Grand Slam with an Olympic gold medal won in the same year. Steffi Graf is the only player to ever achieve it (1988). On the men's side, Andre Agassi holds a career Golden Grand Slam. He has won all the necessary titles, though not in the same year. Interestingly, the only two people to have won all the necessary tournaments for a career Golden Grand Slam are married.

I think his chances of winning USO and the olympic gold are VERY high. I think his chance of winning Wimbledon is quite high, higher than Nadal's at this point. I think his chance of winning RG is low-medium, but there is still quite a significant chance.

sawan66278

While nothing is impossible, winning all those sets and matches physically is too much to ask of even Federer at his best.

Again. I think Djokovic is next Wimbledon champion. He has game for it. More complete game.

Yes, I feel strongly that he will win Wimbledon. Much has been made of the fact that he retired in the semifinal but he was exhausted because he wasn't playing smart. Now he is playing *wisely* and will save up his physical and mental energy for the latter matches. I really do think Federer is mentally done more so than physically. What he should be doing right now is treating Novak like *the* rival (on all courts off of clay) and converting to a more attacking S&V game. With his baseline game he cannot defeat Djokovic, not even on grass. Instead, he's chosen to delude both himself and his fans by attributing his losses to his own problems rather than Djokovic's (and others') abilities.

if the Serbian Slayer does win Wimbledon and then later captures the U.S. Open crown, it may signal the end of Fed`s domination for good. Fed will never be the same.

Djokovic--armed with 3 slams--will start his domination of the planet in 2009. Nadal will continue taking home Roland Garros trophies but Djokovic will take the other 3.

there is nobody on the horizon who can deal with his game right now.

03-23-2008, 03:35 AM
Again, court awareness and strategy can only get you so far. Djokovic's fitness level needs to improve. Let's not forget: Wimbledon is only two weeks after RG. To be honest, it would better for his chances if he lost early at RG. If he has tough matches at RG, you will see.

Though he appears to be a near-future #1, history has shown that players of far greater talent have NEVER at such a young age won in a fashion his fans anticipate. Sampras won the U.S. Open at 20. Djokovic is not in the Sampras class...and yet Pete did not win another slam for years.

Today's game is SO deep...look at Fish today, for someone to simply assume based on current results that victory at all the slams is likely is not logical.

Who has the best chance to win at the remaining slams? Rafa at RG. Is he likely to win? I would say he is the clear favorite...because of his fitness and the nature of clay court tennis.

Even though Wimbledon's courts are much slower than in the past, the nature of grass court tennis leads to quite a level of unpredictability. This is why Rafa fans lament the finals loss last year...who knows when (if) Rafa will ever return there again.

Think about it: if Goran can win the title as a wildcard...than to say someone is likely to win simply does not compute.

jonny84
03-23-2008, 11:25 AM
I think Nadal will put a stop to him at Roland Garros.

Its also going to be hard for anyone to win Olympics and then three weeks later win the US Open. Don't think we will see Novak win the Golden Slam this year.........have to wait to London 2012 (which will need a competent grasscourt player to win both Olympics and Wimbledon)

zcess81
03-23-2008, 11:31 AM
The thing is, Novak has the game to beat Nadal on clay, but right not that's out of the question I'm afraid as Novak is not physically fit to last 5 sets with Nadal on clay. Physical fitness improves with age and around 24-25 players are at their peak in terms of fitness, so in 2-3 year Novak will be ready for French title.

arm
03-23-2008, 12:01 PM
that's almost impossible...

but I'd say he is winning 2 more slams this year, and by the end of the season there's a great chance he'll be number 1

Garson007

Golden Slam should not be out of the scope of his abilities some day... but for now, I'd be quite happy with one GS title, a few GS finals and most definitely the Olympic gold medal (in your face, Roger! :))

Agree, maybe next year or next follow year, But absolute not this year

Nadal and Roger are still there

Kolye, Roddick, Tsonga all on fire

Everyone now almost have equity chance to win this year

If Federer manages to find his JesusFed form (and in the parts of some matches at RG he showed it) , the Faker will not win any GS title anymore.
This year, Fed will win Wimbledon (I consider Rafa bigger challenge than the Faker) and US Open.
And in the following years (after Fed retires), the Faker game will fall apart , Gulbises, Gasquets, Murrays and other late developers will kill the hell out of him, and he will retire for good from the tennis at 25 with rankigs 100+ . :)

Novak's chance of winning another slam are slim, it could only happen in a fast surface and only if he gets a more or less easy draw, plays a GREAT match against Rafa and Roger happens to play like shit in that tournament. if its on clay, no chance cos either Roger or Rafa are better players than him on clay, even if they are playing bad tennis and Novak is playing the match of his life, he would still lose to both of them on clay.

Novak's best chance is in the US Open

Okay I genuinely believe that Novak Djokovic, current World #3, is the next man to claim all 4 Grand Slams. And no, Iím not talking about all 4 in a single year; Iím talking about over the course of his career. Nadal wonít do it as I donít see him ever winning the US Open. Federer will never win the French Open as long as Nadal and Djokovic are still around. Here are the reasons why:

1. He has already won the Australian Open, so a quarter of the job is already complete.

2. Statistically, the French Open is his best Slam, as he has 15-4 W/L record and has reached the Quarter Final stage or better in each of the past 3 years. In 2007 and 2008 he reached the Semi Finals losing each time to the eventual champion, that of course being Rafael Nadal. Nadal will probably win the next 2-3 FOís however I see him dropping one eventually, surely he canít be at the peak of his powers at the French for 8 odd years? Djokovic IS improving on the clay and claimed a clay Masters Series title in Rome this year. After being outclassed early he did fight back to push Nadal later in their SF at Roland Garros this year. The potential to win the French is there.

3. Wimbledon could prove to be his toughest assignment, but reaching the Semi Finals in 2007 was the sign that is can certainly be achieved. He got through to the SF stage after beating Baghdatis in an absolute marathon that from memory lasted well in excess of 4 hours and it took a few days to complete due to the persistent rain. He then ran into Nadal and he took the first set, but from then on it was all downhill as fatigue set in and he was eventually forced to retire (donít worry, Iím coming to this). Donít forget he came up against Nadal in the Queens final and they had another very tough match with Nadal eventually coming out the winner in 3 tough sets. You would imagine Federer will start favourite at Wimbledon for the next few years and his main test is Nadal, but Djokovic is right behind the big 2. He was knocked out early this year, losing to Safin who went on to reach the Semiís, but the result can be put down to a very busy schedule and just being drained. Federer is again, Nadal is perhaps susceptible to a big server, and Djokovic can certainly sneak under the radar and take the title.

4. Finally the US Open. Heís got close, losing to Federer in the 2007 final, a match which included two tie-break sets. He reached the Semi Final stage this year and was a set and 5 all against the eventual champion, but things unraveled thereafter. IMO there is no question he WILL win the US Open at some stage and this would appear to be his chance to take the second of the four Grand Slams.

Now you have to factor in his mental strength. He is at times very mentally strong and we have seen him perform very well when his back has been against the wall (AO SF/Final) and on the other hand we have seen him crumble to the pressure. He is a very emotional and fiery young man who lets things bother him too easily and he can become too caught up in what is happening around him which causes him to lose focus on his game. He is without doubt one of the most talented players on tour and he has developed in such a rapid rate, quicker than most expected and perhaps a little too quick. He went from being talented youngster to Grand Slam champion and world #3 in no time and he never really got a chance to settle down. Itís been a big year and at times it has taken a toll. However a form line at the Slams of W-SF-2nd-SF reads pretty well. In 5 of the past 7 Slams (not including 2008 AO) he has succumbed to the eventual champion, a sign of his consistency and the fact in order to beat him, you need to win the title. He has no glaring weaknesses and he has the game to win on all surfaces. He needs to work harder on his concentration and intelligently manage his schedule. Are we looking at the winner of the next man who will win all 4 Slams in Novak Djokovic? I believe we are.

JimmyV
09-11-2008, 04:20 PM
I think he will be the first ever player to win 5 different slams.

Within one to two years he will become so dominant that he will win every slam he enters without ever dropping a set. Tennis will begin to fester and become boring, so they will invent a new surface to play on made specially to thwart his game, perhaps gravel or snow. He will get the last laugh though as he will conquer it, winning the first time he enters in a warrior like 5 set final in which he requires 8+ injury timeouts.

Really starting in maybe late 2009 I don't ever see him losing a match at all until at least 2015 when some new unheard of players come up that can actually present a challenge to him.

Instead of "would school," I would say "has repeatedly schooled and will probably continue to school."

I do actually think Djokovic has more chance of winning the FO than Federer does. The reason is that Federer only has about three good years left there - and Nadal will probably dominate all three. Djokovic has eight or nine good years left there - chances are Nadal will suck or be burnt out for at least one of those years and probably more.

I agree with the OP. Djokovic will definitely win the US Open, it would be odd if someone with his hardcourt game didn't. He's got a very good game for grass and should win that too at some point. Finally there's clay where he has also proven himself being behind only Nadal and Federer and Djokovic has time on his side. Federer will only have a couple more shots at the FO (at best) and Nadal is bound to stumble at SOME point. But obviously, winning the FO while Nadal is around is no small feat - just ask Roger.

You know, I am a Novak fan, but I don't blatantly come out and claim things that may not be true. I think Novak needs to get his head together and beat a couple of top guys before going after the French and Wimbledon. Novak will win the U.S. Open someday. That's probably true. But Wimbledon and French I am not sure. Nadal is just a beast on both surfaces and has beaten him 2 times on Grass and a bunch of times on clay, so I guess we will have to see about that. On hardcourts, Murray will be tough outing for Djokovic every time.

We are talking about potential here and I believed the thread starter that there is a very good potential for Nole to win all four. He is just on his early part of his career and hed already one in the bag and the other 3 in semifinals losing to eventual winners.

The people who claim differently so are again those deluded fans of Nadal. I dont think this thread is created to diminished anyones acomplishment but assessing someone capabilities. There is no doubt that Federer and Nadal are his obstacles in doing this but he already proved to beat them back to back and besides Nole still has 10 years in front of him to do this.

How can you be a fan of someone you don't believed?
Is is really hard to imagine Nole at least winning all four slams with 10 years in front of him? Nole's game is not surface related unlike you know who, so I really think he can win any GS regardless of the surface.

Djokovic will win a couple of more slams. But all on hardcourt.

The Roland Garros title is impossible for him.

Before you jump on my post, this guy said that Novak will win all 4 slams and not 4 slams. I think Novak can probably win 5-7 slams at least. But he may never win the French if Nadal stays dominant there and someone else like Monfils takes over.

There are some players that will beat him very cleary in a determinated surface. Do you really think that Nole's game is more than enough to beat Nadal on clay??

I'd have to agree with you. I for one see a very Agassi-esque career.

Or it could be more like Safin-esque or Hewitt-esque career... :)
Be careful with those predictions... One never knows how it is going to turn out...

The only thing of which i am sure so far for him is that he has been very consistent with the results he's made so far...And those are quite impressive results... It is obvious that he is very talented for the game judging from those results...He is the youngest man in the Open era to have reached all GS semifinals and 4th in history to reach 5 consecutive SFs of all Grand Slams and won a Slam (AO 2008)...Also,he's got 4 AMS shields under his belt and i guess there is more room to develope for him...And it also shows how ambitious he is...I mean,for instance,Federer was not even close to the results that Novak has made at that age... Federer won his first Slam (Wimbledon) when he was in the year when he turned 22 (Novak is in the year when he turned 21) and it was the only one he won in that year(2003).Before that,Federer was ousted in the first round of Wimbledon in 2002 if i remember it well...And,Fed also won only one AMS event in 2002...

But you can never be so sure... That's why you could refer to my first passage...Competition is tough,you know... It's too early to say,but judging from his results so far and when you make a comparison with other great names of this sport(I put Fed as an example,but you can also see Ivan Lendl's career or Sampras's career,they could also tell you that their results are more or less the same at the same age that Novak is at right know),his career looks veeery,veeery promising so far... But once again,i have to point out that you can never be so sure how it is going to turn out... It's too early to say... Let's wait and see how it is going to look like in the future...It requires patience and time...:)

Yes, while Rafa is around.Excluding him from the picture, Novak is quite good on clay and would be a favourite.I'm not saying Rafa will exclude himself, ofcourse, just speaking hypothetically.

He definitely has the capabilities to achieve a career slam. But like you said, he has a little more maturing mentally to do; at times, he's solid as a rock, and at other times, not so much.

It's not for sure, but I'll bet Nadal wears down a bit in his mid 20s. Maybe he'll be healthy and consistent enough to still dominate Roland Garros but I think in the later stages of their careers that Djokovic will have a few shots at winning the FO. Of course someone else might come along. I agree that mental maturity will be key. Djokovic hasn't yet learned how to handle being the favorite.

Take USO first, or actually show he can defend a big title on hard like AO/IW/MIAMI/CINCY. He is not under radar, he is No.3,he must handle this and that. Novak just has many things left to prove and improve. For me it's still too far to talk about his chances at FO/WIMBY. But wish him the good.

Do you really believe Novak will maintain his level and the one day nadal is not there take the FO? I doubt it.

I think Novak could win all 4 but I doubt he will. Lots of players had the game to win all Slams, very few made it happen.

Here's the deal:

We are talking about potential and possibilities.

What are the chances that Nadal will win FO for the next 3 or 4 years and let alone 10 years. The answer is very low. The most consecutive Slam of a player up to date is 5 consecutive and 7 repeats ( open era).

As for Novak- He was in semis of all slams after been trying it for a year being a contender. What are the chances he would win all of them? Vey high considering all your loses comes from the suppose to be 1 and 2 player in the world and he have proven he could beat them.

Can't you get a clue?

Too true, however I believe his consistency (like you pointed out) is what gives him a level above that of a Safin like career. Time will tell though; it's hard to see where he has gone wrong result wise - apart from an inability to defend titles.

Okay I genuinely believe that Novak Djokovic, current World #3, is the next man to claim all 4 Grand Slams. And no, Iím not talking about all 4 in a single year; Iím talking about over the course of his career. Nadal wonít do it as I donít see him ever winning the US Open. Federer will never win the French Open as long as Nadal and Djokovic are still around. Here are the reasons why:

1. He has already won the Australian Open, so a quarter of the job is already complete.

2. Statistically, the French Open is his best Slam, as he has 15-4 W/L record and has reached the Quarter Final stage or better in each of the past 3 years. In 2007 and 2008 he reached the Semi Finals losing each time to the eventual champion, that of course being Rafael Nadal. Nadal will probably win the next 2-3 FOís however I see him dropping one eventually, surely he canít be at the peak of his powers at the French for 8 odd years? Djokovic IS improving on the clay and claimed a clay Masters Series title in Rome this year. After being outclassed early he did fight back to push Nadal later in their SF at Roland Garros this year. The potential to win the French is there.

3. Wimbledon could prove to be his toughest assignment, but reaching the Semi Finals in 2007 was the sign that is can certainly be achieved. He got through to the SF stage after beating Baghdatis in an absolute marathon that from memory lasted well in excess of 4 hours and it took a few days to complete due to the persistent rain. He then ran into Nadal and he took the first set, but from then on it was all downhill as fatigue set in and he was eventually forced to retire (donít worry, Iím coming to this). Donít forget he came up against Nadal in the Queens final and they had another very tough match with Nadal eventually coming out the winner in 3 tough sets. You would imagine Federer will start favourite at Wimbledon for the next few years and his main test is Nadal, but Djokovic is right behind the big 2. He was knocked out early this year, losing to Safin who went on to reach the Semiís, but the result can be put down to a very busy schedule and just being drained. Federer is again, Nadal is perhaps susceptible to a big server, and Djokovic can certainly sneak under the radar and take the title.

4. Finally the US Open. Heís got close, losing to Federer in the 2007 final, a match which included two tie-break sets. He reached the Semi Final stage this year and was a set and 5 all against the eventual champion, but things unraveled thereafter. IMO there is no question he WILL win the US Open at some stage and this would appear to be his chance to take the second of the four Grand Slams.

Now you have to factor in his mental strength. He is at times very mentally strong and we have seen him perform very well when his back has been against the wall (AO SF/Final) and on the other hand we have seen him crumble to the pressure. He is a very emotional and fiery young man who lets things bother him too easily and he can become too caught up in what is happening around him which causes him to lose focus on his game. He is without doubt one of the most talented players on tour and he has developed in such a rapid rate, quicker than most expected and perhaps a little too quick. He went from being talented youngster to Grand Slam champion and world #3 in no time and he never really got a chance to settle down. Itís been a big year and at times it has taken a toll. However a form line at the Slams of W-SF-2nd-SF reads pretty well. In 5 of the past 7 Slams (not including 2008 AO) he has succumbed to the eventual champion, a sign of his consistency and the fact in order to beat him, you need to win the title. He has no glaring weaknesses and he has the game to win on all surfaces. He needs to work harder on his concentration and intelligently manage his schedule. Are we looking at the winner of the next man who will win all 4 Slams in Novak Djokovic? I believe we are.
I believe you are incorrect :hug:
I think he will be the first ever player to win 5 different slams.

Within one to two years he will become so dominant that he will win every slam he enters without ever dropping a set. Tennis will begin to fester and become boring, so they will invent a new surface to play on made specially to thwart his game, perhaps gravel or snow. He will get the last laugh though as he will conquer it, winning the first time he enters in a warrior like 5 set final in which he requires 8+ injury timeouts.

Really starting in maybe late 2009 I don't ever see him losing a match at all until at least 2015 when some new unheard of players come up that can actually present a challenge to him.
