Djokovic at FO?

In tandem with my prediction that Djokovic will win the Golden Slam in 2008, what is the analysis on his potential on clay? He seems to have the game but maybe not yet the fitness? Perhaps he will train so as to improve that in the coming months?

he will beat rafa in the FO semis and meet fed in the finals where fed will get triple bageled 3-6 3-6 3-6

:retard: truly describes this thread. He's not going to even beat Tsonga.

Doesn't the term bagel mean 6-0?? the 0 resembling a bagel?

Anyway back to the topic, i think he is up against it if Rafa finds that clay from of recent times, although Tsonga seemed to beat him a lot with drop shots which i found to be a bit of a worry, Novak is a breath of fresh air and I'd love to see him claim the FO

You're a newbie.
On the MTF the term "triple bagel 6-3 6-3 6-3" is popular ;)

My apologies indeed, and yep, i'm a newbie, but I'm sure u can see where I'm coming from? To be bagelled per se is to lose 6-0 so, to me, oddly enough, triple bagel would be 6-0 6-0 6-0. Thanks for the information, ahhh the embarrassment of a newbie, I'll get better ...... I hope, bear with me please!

By the way, the first example there, has a few people telling him a bagel is a 0? and asking if he meant triple pretzel? :confused:

I think Nadal will win this year's French Open, but he'll certainly have to hope Djokovic and Nalbandian are in Federer's half of the draw. Then again, he always gets cakewalk draws, so I wouldn't be surprised. :retard:

Nadal is not a lock to 4-peat the French this year. Without the pressure of a NCYGS, I think Fed will play more aggressive and free in the final.

Djokovic is better and better tennis player from month to month !
If he wins AO he will get needed experiance to maybe win FO.
He adopts very quickley to any surface !

He definitely is improving, but on clay, I still think he's not experienced enough... I really think Nadal is the huge favourite for RG! His topspin and endurance makes him really tough on clay.

Let's see first is he's gonna win this one...and if Wilander is right about Tsonga's schlonga:worship:...than Djoko (Dick in serbian) has to improve his schlonga for the clay season.:devil:

Farenhajt says:
Or perhaps he got a glimpse of Tsonga schlonga and fell in love?

Considering how good Djokovic did at last years french open i think its safe to say he's a threat to anyone in the draw. After all, his general fitness/stamina will only improve over time. Nadal is still the favourite going into the french and although i think he will win it i still think that he will have his poorest year this year since being no.2

Serbian players are generally good on clay, as almost all tennis clubs in the country operate on this surface. Monica Seles was 3 times FO champion, Nole, Ana and Jelena performed extremely well last year there, so I think he has a chance to be a champion there. But I think its a little bit early talking about Nole's golden slam. Lets see what he will do on the hard courts in the first place. If he wins AO and USO in one year, then maybe he has a potential, but he will need a lot of practice on grass to be a threat to Fed at Wimbledon.

I doubt he'll get to the final again. He really does not play very well on clay...

When does the retirement tour for Federer and Nadal start:confused:

Unless Jo Willy Tsonga falls in awe at the feet of Novak "The Mouth" Djokovic discussing future slams seems premature. If Rafa and Roger want to train for the future, JW should be a far more likely threat.

Djokovic has the potential to win on all surfaces. Has reached all SF in all the slams and is still very young. So if he has luck by his side, then he could win any of the slams this year(AO, FO, W, USO) and in the future.....

Djokovic can't beat Nadal on clay. Nadal would be a straight sets favorite in that matchup. And if Djokovic managed to take a set or two it would not go his way since mentally Djokovic is a relative light-weight. He doesn't have the temperament to defeat a player of Nadal's claycourt level :)

:) That's what happened after Safin beat him at the AO. :lol:


Anyway, too early for me to say how Djokovic will do at RG. I need to see his form on clay and so much can happen in 6 months.... or 5.

While Djkovic has improved tremendously over last season and with a good start to this years i still don't think he can be held in the same regard to players like Nadal,Federer,Davydenko or Ferrer on clay.

Djokovic was totally outplayed in both encouters with Nadal last year. His beleif was pretty much gone after the first set of the FO semi final.

And as for other players i think the only player to really get close to Nadal last year on clay would have to be Davydenko but Nadal upped the ante in that last set. Hamburg didn't seem to mean anything as Federer didn't look any closer last year in fact he looked more resigned to thought of being able to beat Nadal at the FO.

As for Nalbandian i think that would be a totally different story on clay again, i have a feeling fat Dave would be the one getting moved around the court more often then not but hopefully we get the chance to see such a match up.

Golden slam? Not this year.

Nope. :) I don't like Tsonga. I wanted Nadal to play the final.... So I'm not that other guy who is a Tsonga fan.

very pretty slim chances he can beat a full-fit and confident Nadal on clay
