we all know that djokovic is a much better hardcourt player than nadal,but can he ever beat him on clay? i think he can,but he has to catch nadal on a tired streak,just like federer did in the finals on Hamburg in 07. Or do you guys think Djokovic will never beat Nadal on clay in his entire career?

I think he can, but to do that he will have to serve really well, something he hasn't been doing lately and be very consistent. On grass I think he can win anytime, he just hasn't done yet, but this is year match showed he can: he served bad, wasted a set point and had a slow start in the 2nd set, and it ended 7-6 7-5, pretty close.

They're young and he'll have plenty of opportunities. Time is certainly on his side in that regard. So, yes. Probably.

Given his age and his talent, I think he could beat him one or two times on the surface.

Perhaps yeah, he'll never have an advantage in such a match-up but its possible at some point in his career he can score a win or 2 over Nadal on clay.

Federer's done it theres no reason why Nole can't once he's more experienced on the surface.

Yes, I think he can. But in a very close match

The best he can do is take one set. Playing as his best.

The real question is if Djokovic will ever beat Nadal on clay or on grass....
