How long before Djokovic beats Nadal in a Grand Slam?

I guess this would be Djokovic's only hope of making a name for himself, all roads go through Nadal.

Nah, only ever supported Agassi and Nadal, not into multiple fanships, plus Djokovic isn't classy enough to support anyway.

rafa can come to the nole open next year, if he wants a real challenge, that is.

YEs in hindsight it would have been better for the last 2 options to be LATA and NEVA and get rid of RG11 :mad:

Surely its a great challenge to win the Serbian Open, everyone peaks for it.

In his current form and fitness, I believe he has a decent shot at the US Open this summer.

no man,wrong theory.if somebody has,i.e. 0-5 against nadal that doesn't mean he has complex of nadal.but djokovic has,he is 3. (now 4.) in the world and he want to be ahead of him,he want to be no. 1.but he is 2 years just 1 or 2 position behind of him and he can't pass him nohow.he beated nadal few times but when is important,when is a big match,he can't deal wit that.that is complex.you could see that on the olypmics.on gs he has less chance because that is best of 5,djokovic fitness isn't good.
for some player which is i.e. 30. in the world and has 0-5 against nadal that doesn't mean he has complex of nadal.he can have,but probably he haven't.

When Rafa retires ;)

Of course if there is no Roddick or Tsonga in his part of the draw.

Next time they meet RG excluded. I think the Djoker is ready to get the job done.

the funny thing is that these two played two years ago in a slam (W '07). There must be time soon. And more than once this year I predict. The chances are at FO. Regardless of the draw. Two the beest calycourters suppose to meet in FO; final or s/f regardless of the draw.

However, most likely Djoker will shut Rafa down in USO.

Nola should be beating Nadal in best of 3-setters if he has a chance in best of 5-setters thats for darn sure :o and Nola looked worn out last US Open :o

he was worn out for the rest of 2009, after he won AO! Taht's why he lost all those matches he supposed to win.

My guess is that once he won that slam he thought he reached the stars, and now all players should bow down every time they face him at the court and lose without much resistance?! It took him a full year before he realised that was wrong. I hope.

Now he started to come back to where he was a year ago?! What a waste?!

that's exactly what Rog was thinking for last few years about himself. Once he realised he was wrong it's too late. The guys started to catch up and he is getting older and lost the confidence too, so that damage is not repairable!?

He might still win tourneys but "old" Federer is gone for good. His slump started at the 2009 AO where he lost s/f to Djoker in straight sets!? he didn't take that as a warning sign, and he's been paying the price for a 18 months now!

The tennis is one of the most physically demanding sport! I cannot think of any other single sports that takes your mind and physical energy for 4-5 hours!? That's why the career in tennis is a short one.

I think Nadal would need a quad injury for Nola to beat him.

Djokvic is up 4:3 ag Nadal on hard. So probably their next meeting on HC in USO 09 or AO 10.

Maybe Wim 09, who knows...

Nola leads 4:3 on hardcourt but Nadal is getting better every year on hardcourt while Nola has gotten worse since winning the Australian Open.

Well the proof is in the pudding, and the pudding is the poll, just review this poll after each slam to measure your righteousness.

My own vain hope is that it will take him about as long as it does for him to serve, ie practically forever.
