Congrats to Nole :yeah: After Federer and Nalbandian he is the third active player to do it. Fed and Nalby both did it at the age of 24 and now Djokovic makes it at the age of 20 !

And the first active tennis player to be consistently unfunny at all four grand slams.

Now Rafa needs to make a US Open semi to join this elite club.

Seems Nole is determined to become #1 at one point in the near future... his consistency is frightening. Rafa on clay was even more consistent in the last couple of years, but this dude keeps rolling on ALL surfaces. That's pretty much what it takes to become #1.

To reach the semifinals at such a young age at 4 consecutive grand slams is mighty impressive.

I have few stats questions.
How many players since Open era made all 4 semifinals in career?
How many players since Open era made all 4 semifinals in row?
How many players since Open era made all 4 finals in career?
Who is youngest player who made all 4 semifinals? (and who is youngest who made it in row?)
Who is youngest player who made all 4 finals?

Just curious. Thanks in advance!

Novak is undoubtedly a great player, but it shows what an unchallenging clown era this is that he completed this task at the young age of 20.

Clown era.

The likes of Boredo have made it on the brink of top 5 in this era. That's how bad it is.

Novak deserves credit though, but he's hardly been tested here yet.

How challenging era was it when Becker won Wimbledon at 17?

rocketassist,

Before 2-3 months you had Novak in your sub, what's the reason for this change of your opinion?

He's okay, he's not a top fave but he's a good game to watch. However I expected him to be about 23 when he achieved stuff like no 3 in the world.

To be fair apart from the two above him, there hasn't been much competition.

That is an impressive achievement for sure. He does have consistency but his downtime has not yet come. I wonder if it will or not?

For such a young player, that's very impressive especially considering he's now reached at least SF or better in his last 4 slams.

Congrats to Djokovic, to be so consistent at such a young age is very impressive.

It's especially impressive when you consider the players who never achieved four GS semi-finals in a row. The likes of Sampras, Becker, Edberg and Wilander reached all 4 semis but never consecutively.

Very impressive for a 20 year old. :hatoff: Nole makes a nice spoiler to the Roger-Rafa party.

Nice sig. Where did you got it from, or did you make it yourself?

This also begs the question: will Nole become the new Roger or the new Fat David? ;)

It was an ESPN fluff filler thingy. It's cool, isn't it? :)

Here's the actual video I took it from. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qdcwbK-VMIQ)

Well done Nole!

Impressive feat. Justifies his ranking.

Amazing that it should be him, and not Nadal or Roddick or Hewitt --- but then, those 3 have something much much better that he would trade all of his GS SFs for. :)

Rafter did it too (YES i know, he's not an active tennis player, take it easy ;) )

Well the person he really spoils it for is the one who hoped to be in the mix. Djokovic is the one who is a bonafide candidate in the mix with Federer and Nadal.

Of course it is still early and who knows if he can hang in there long term.
