I know that maybe too early to call it.

but Murray and Nadal keep going and with Federer leading the way that Djok may not have any chance this year If Djok not improve.

He is still very young. Will he be another Roddick????????


Roddick was also young when he got his first Slam, but Then He got nothing since 03 (21 years)

I didn't realize Andy's career was over, did I miss something?

He miss the maybe last chance in England. Do you still believe that he have a chance with Murray and DEl growing and Nadal returns and Fed still best

Maybe but at 22 this thread is a massive over reaction in my opinion.

But even Murray hasn't won a slam. Until he proves it.
No idea. I think the answer is NO, but not 100%sure.

Fedal era doesn't have long left, so he won't be a one slam wonder just as Murray and Del Potro won't be slamless wonders.

Djokovic has age thus time on his side and he has more talent

he can get even fitter

he can add more net game in his arsenal and it's a good idea that he's hired T.Martin to help him

he will gain more experience and learn from them

he's done something that Roddick will never accomplish in his career and that is to make the semis or better in ALL 4 majors so it is proof that he doesn't struggle,no matter the surface:yeah:

can he get better on clay?well he's proven how much progress he made this clay court season

Martin will help him on grass too so I certainly see this guy winning 5+ slams in his future:yeah:

....Never realized 26 was a death year. Nor did I realize that someone who's become better than he was years ago meant he no longer had a chance to win anything anymore.

With the exception of Federer and Murray, if the draw were to open up, not only Djokovic or Roddick, but Nadal and Del Potro have an exceptional chance to win any draws with the exception of clay courts.

This achievement is given too much credit. Look at the diversity and lack of surface specialists on clay and grass right now.

maybe not on clay or grass but it's safe to say that for now both james blake and andy murray are both hard court specialist
not long ago and still to this day the likes of Hewitt and Roddick;Blake still about about clay court specialists as an insult;guess it's safe to say that those who grew up on clay:Federer and Nadal are the ones winning the majors:shrug: and not the hard court specialists:tape:

the last slam winner grew up on clay too:Djokovic:shrug:

the 21 century player is shaping out to play well in all 4 majors thus means clay;hard courts and grass unless you're Blake:tape:

Djokovic is too young to be crossed off the Slam contenders list, IMO. And so is Roddick. This discussion is way too premature.

Djokovic, Del Potro, Davydenko, Soderling, Murray, Tsonga, Simon, Verdasco, Berdych, Blake, Haas, Gonzalez (debatable, maybe clay), Cilic.. all these players are at the best on hard courts.

Federer and Roddick are grass, Nadal is clay.

Soooooooooooooo diverse.

hmmmm. interesting notion. well, in terms what will happen, well who the hell knost. both guys a re still very active. djoker is also young so....

I guess a parallel can be made in case there are moments which suggest djoker can become someone's honey - as roddick was to Fed. cause, roddick - bless him - is a very very consistent player. he really gives his best. so he did and played and all - and than faced a wall. but he doesn't give up! he will still push and try and try and bang his head on that same wall... so I would not be surprised if he makes it and takes another slam (maybe even uso 09). he is simply that kind of a guy, a pusher but exclusevly in the sense of his game, but more as an orientation. he has this drive and is going forward. something I respect very much.

djoker is more of a slacker. every other interview of his contains the 'not everything is tennis, one should have some fun' idea. but he is more talented and thus has a lager peace of meat to lean on. that can be sen as his replacement for roddickss seemingly fuel-free engine. so kind of they are in the same pol-position, also considering their rivals. I would not like to sound like a fortune teller but writings are on the wall for the djoker - 0-4 in MS finals this year, frequent let downs vs in the groove players and so on. so yeah, their career's can turn out to be similar in the way they shape out.

If Novak can just play Nadal 7 times in a row in a hardcourt Grand Slam, then no, Novak will win another Grand Slam

Djoko and Roddick will both win another slam, thinking otherwise is stupid. Who else can challenge them at the moment? Federer, Murray, and maybe Del Potro. All it takes is the draw to go their way and they'll take one.

Djokovic beat Federer in a major in 2008, so he definetly can win another because he just beat the goat in a slam, something very few people managed to do...

His chances will increase a lot when Federer retires, and he´s very young, he´ll win another without a doubt... as for Roddick, i highly doubt it

The answer you are looking for is 'no', granted his family keeps laying low !

I think both can still win slams.

I see Roddick inching out a Wimby or an Oz, and im almost 100% sure that Djokovic will win RG at least once.

If Djokovic is to win another slam, it wont be the French. AO or USO.

Of course Djokovic can win another slam or two. Luck plays a much bigger part than most people acknowledge. An easy draw, a potential opponent injured, another losing early, and Bingo, you're in the final.

Provided the basic ability is there, and it certainly is with Djokovic, it is almost inevitable that sooner or later he will get lucky enough.

Look at Murray in Montreal for example. I'm a big big Murray fan, but this title was handed to him on a plate. It could just as easily have been Djokovic.

Too many people forget that the best player only wins "most" of the time, he does not win "all" of the time.

Both have the potential to win another one. Djokovic has the better chance since he's younger and Federer/Nadal will likely come to an end with some time to spare for Novak. Novak's Slam results this year have been horrible, but he seems to have picked up his game and stopped being such a pussy on the court with his ground game.

Mind you yeah Roddick only has one slam, but I wouldn't call him a one-slam-wonder which many do. When you reach an additional 4 slam finals i highly doubt it was a one-trick-pony win. Majoli, Myskina, Gaudio, Johanson are one slam wonders

At least he already has one... come on the Djokovic apocalypse is tiring :zzz: ... they guy has one AUS Open and a YEC... IMO he will win at least one Roland Garros and, possible one USO too :)
