Congratulations to Novak Djokovic on one of the best streaks ever

Before today, Nole would remain undefeated for the rest of his career. After today, he's done and a midget at slams. Never in doubt with MTF.
Fact is, he had an amazing run which is among the best in history, even if no records were broken. And number 1 is just a matter of time.
I'm not a fan of him but he should be congratulated on this amazing (and completely unexpected) run :worship:

True.

So many wasted half the year wishing it to end. But we'll probably not see history like this again for some time to come. Any follower of this sport should relish all its greatness, not just that achieved by one player.

For me, it's the greatest streak in history.

The fact that he beat #1 Nadal four times, and all time great Federer 3 times?, is what makes it so special. Plus the fact that there was a grand slam involved.

Really, credit to the man, he must be gutted having to lose right now instead of a couple weeks earlier.

Novak's streak is a joke. He did not play Roger in Mardid or this would have been over sooner. Novak is a mental midget. That's just a fact. After 4 days of rest, he faces what McEnroe calls Grand Pa and loses in 4 easily. I mean he was dominated tonight. Congratulations on nothing. If he goes and wins Wimbledon, we are talking about something. Other than that, Novak did nothing special. haha

Thanks for opening this thread Loco. :worship:

My Nole lost today to a better player, I'm not a hater i can recognise it.
I just hope that he bounces back and goes to win Wimbledon and/or USO.
But no matter what he does for the rest of the season he already has a place in the history books for the most amazing streak ever. He's been awesome and all things brilliant and he's the n#1 player this year. A loss had to happen sooner or later.

it was a good streak

ironically enough, i was rooting for him today as he's had a real chance of beating nadal in the final. can you believe it? the first match of the year i was rooting for him and he loses. i guess my jinxing powers must be quite strong :lol:

Hats off to Nole. Possibly the best streak ever considered McEnroe's didn't include a Slam.

I was almost rooting for him (for the same reason) but the Fed fan in me won. Now we will see the same old beat down. :sobbing:

Anyway congrats to Novak are due on the incredible streak.

Good thread. Bad luck that Fognini withdrawing cost him the record but obviously falling in the semi hurts more. Will certainly be interesting to see how he bounces back at Queens/Wimbledon.

He wasn't dominated. He showed again that from the back of the court he has rock solid nuclear weapon groundstrokes on both sides and a very strong serve to go with it. He is going to be No 1 and will probably stay there for a while. He also showed a lot of mental strength apart from in the second set, where he was clearly rattled by the way Roger played in the first.

The main problem he had was Roger's insane serving skills. Incredible accuracy on the first serve - he was consistently putting the ball right into the corners with pace. Even on clay and with Novak's returning skills, he just couldn't get the ball back with any consistency. No point having nuke groundstrokes if you can't get into the rally.

I hope this doesn't get him too down.

Maybe he will be relieved a bit that the streak is over. Such great runs can really put pressure on your shoulders.

It will be interesting to see how he will react to today's loss but it's part of being a successful athlete to deal with disappointments.

Losses belong to sport as well as victories.

Impressive run for him in the past months which will hopefully motivate other players to step up their level as well.

great streaks, but people saying we won't see a streak like this for a long time seem to forget that a few years ago Federer did the exact same streak (06-07), winning the Us Open, Master's Cup, Australien Open. we'll probably see a streak like that in a few years, I'm sure of it!

John Wertheim:
In some ways today’s match puts it in perspective. To win more than 40 straight matches — on different surfaces, in different conditions, in different continents — against such high-caliber opponents is really such a formidable feat. That it took an off-day at the office and a vintage performance by the Greatest of All Time to snap the streak (barely, at that) says plenty about Djokovic’s game. Inasmuch as there’s an unfortunate part of Djokovic’s streak, he only has “only” one major to show for it. The cynics will say: “A lot of players have won one Slam in a row.” But I think people who know tennis realize just how astronomically well you have to be playing to go a half year without losing, what a tremendous ride this was — especially when the train runs Nadalville and Federerburg, against whom Djokovic racked up seven of the 43 wins.

Orka_n
06-03-2011, 11:45 PM
It was an amazing accomplishment all in all from Djokovic, and I admit I didn't think he had it in him before this.

That said, "most impressive streak in mens tennis history"? Don't make me laugh.

06-04-2011, 12:07 AM
regardless it had bo5 victories, he still won more major tournaments, which in the end, is what counts the most! Djoko had an unbelievable streat, there's no denying it, but he won the AO and that's it, that's the main tournaments we'll remeber from his streak in the future...

hipolymer
06-04-2011, 12:10 AM
I hate to say it but the streak means nothing without two grand slam wins. Players bring their best game to the grand slams. Prime example is Federer with his performance at RG this year while having a really shitty season otherwise.

Djoker's streak has been great for modern tennis. He's been able to throw a monkey in the wrench of 2 guys that have had a stranglehold on the men's game for the past 6 years. Competition is never a bad thing, and as long as he doesn't fall apart mentally after today (which is both likely and understandable) he will continue to give these guys some trouble.

Shit just got real.

Over 40 matches through the grueling clay season is truly remarkable. A Grand Slam, four Masters titles for seven titles overall this year and the third longest winning streak in the Open Era behind Villas and Lendl.
Not bad kid, take a week off and relax.

It is a mug era.

However he does deserve credit cause it's still a long streak and he did play some sparkling stuff in patches, in particular set one of the AO final, vs Wawa in Rome and just owning poor Rafito and pounding him off court.
