Do you think Djokovic could win multiple Roland Garros titles?

Nadal retiring from tendinitoes, Federer not retiring but playing less great, Del Potro very good on clay but not the best movement, Murray not very good in grand slams, maybe Djokovic being the best claycourter for a few years, maybe he could win 2-3 in a row? Seems like clay is less popular in Europe than previous years so there is less players focusing on clay and more focusing on hardcourt, no young clay freaks on the way....

Multiple? No. I cant see Djoker as a consistent year in year out slam winner. He has too many mental setbacks. Now if he can overcome this sure? 1-2? Yes thats reasonable.

as big a fan of Nole as I am, i doubt it, he is not mentally strong enough in grand slams. he has not made a grand slam final since he won Aus Open in 2008 against Tsonga.

he gets to a bunch of SF's only to lose to better players (Fed/Rafa).

but i still hold out hope that Nole can win French Open one day.

Why does he have such problems with slams? It is very strange for such a divaman like Djokovic to lack confidence....I guess he lacks inner confidence but possesses outer confidence :yeah:

Nole is very good on clay but I don't know about multiple wins at RG.

Let him win a RG first and see :p

No, he is good, but not that good.

He surely has the potential, and he should be happy if it actually happened one day. But multiple times? I mean, you know who he's lost against in Paris this year, do you?

I can see him winning 1, not sure about a few tho.

He possibly could because out of his generation (Murray, Potro, Monfils, Cillic)he is the best on clay bar Nadal.

Multiple RG GS????? NO!!!!! First he has to remember how to win one GS again, than he may win a RG, but multiple RG'S????? I doubt it!!!!!!!!

I don't know about multiple RG, but I'm sure he will win at least one. And I'm very sure that we are going to see a different Nole in the short future, he's already battling his mental setdowns, I'm sure he's a different player now and he's showing it. He's going to be the one to watch next year, that's for sure.

I'd be more than happy about multiple RG titles for him, but one RG would already be great for a start.
I think he has a better chance to become a multiple Slam Champ at one of the hardcourt Slams, though.

Why do so many talented players have problems at the slams? Murray has problems, Djoker has problems, Roddick has always had problems, Safin, Nalbandian, and the list goes on. Tennis is just as much mental as it is physical.

I don't know about multiple, he should be able to get 1 though. He has been the 2nd best clay courter for the last few years.

I think roddick has had one very specific problem at slams.
Safin and Nalbandian have troubles at any tournament it's not a slam thing. Since early 2008 Djokovic has been pretty crap all the time, only Murray seems to have significantly lower results at slams compared to other tourneys but he's still young.

I can definitely see it happening. But has to gave a MUCH better 2010 for anyone to consider him 1st or 2nd favor for RG in the future.

tektonac
11-21-2009, 06:06 PM
who else is going to win multiple FOs? 2010 will be the year Nadal won't dominate clay courts as he used to do that before. We already saw what damage Nole did to him before hiring new fitness coach; can you imagine the damage with much improved Nole we are witnessing? Mental toughness doubts? Just watch him.

If neither Rafa nor Fed make it to the finals it could well happen next year.

No. I love the guy but he's only the current champ of RG. The GOAT is not a clay miracle.

And on topic: I doubt it. Maybe Nole can win once but... for some reason, I feel RG might have unexpected winners in the next couple of years.

11-21-2009, 11:56 PM
Since there are no more claycourt specialists (all are basically hard court palyers), I see Novak and Murray winning RG. Future Grand Slam winners. Even it turned out to be 1 win on each event.

Steelq

What are you talking about?

He was 18 when he played against Patience,so not exactly a match to look at when we are talking about his RG chances.

Arkulari
11-22-2009, 01:20 AM
as soon as he stops losing to the likes of Kohli in early rounds, I think he might be able to do it, but in a future where Roger and Rafa are retired or have lowered their levels in a big way ;)

Nole is the "clay heir" so to speak

It's possible but only if Nadal goes down to injury. It's not like Federer will continue to fluke away Frenches

There's a HUGE difference between best of three and best of five...Again, the jury is out with respect to Novak's stamina on clay. Yes, he's made two semis at RG...but the draws were cupcakes of the highest order. Yes, he's proven he can do well in a best of three...but I think he would do well to win even one...and that's pushing it. And no...he has NOT been the second best clay courter over the last few years...that's Mr. Federer.

Exactly how many matches did Novak win over Rafa on clay this year? How many major titles on the surface?

I think he will become #1 very soon...but let's not go overboard: the man has been playing well during the dog days of the season...indoors where weather conditions are not a factor...playing best of three set matches against opponents whose motivations are questionable this time of year. Now, if he, say, wins the AO again...then you can start to argue about his chances at RG.

He's number one on the year on clay as I should have put it. Djokovic is number 3. Fed's been number 2 for the last 4 years on clay.

I don't know. He proved to be a great dirtballer this season, but I don't see him getting past Rafa and Fed to win Roland Garros anytime soon, unless something strange happens. I still don't know if Nole has the stamina to last in best of 5 matches for 7 consecutive rounds at any grand slam. His performance at the slams have been somewhat disappointing, given his talent. So, when it comes to Paris, I don't see him winning multiple titles at the French. Maybe elsewhere, if and when he wins another slam.

Djokovic is playing great right now on hard courts, and he's a talented clay courter.

But he'll have to improve his physical stamina to beat Nadal and Del Potro at Roland Garros. I'd love to see him and Federer square off before the final one year.

Now that Federer is out of this RG, I only wish that Nole's serve is out of the Emergency Room, because this would be an ideal scenario for him to get a hold of another GS!!!! However, this is just wishfull thinking, because we all know what Novak's serve looks like... It is a serve that does not even guarantee that he will overcome Melzer tomorrow...... not to mention having to deal with a close to form, hungry for another RG title Nadal................. We shall see what happens next,,,,,, Roger is out and I just hope tennis wins without any moonball pushers winning over and over again.............. Cheers
