The Nole hype is a bit nauseating. Beating Olderer in 2011 isn't the same as beating Federer in earlier years.

Nadal is still the man to beat, and Nole failed at USO'10 when he had the chance.

The bookies have Nadal as a clear fave for the title, Djokovic 2nd, Federer a close 3rd.

They can meet 100,000x if they want at the masters, I could careless.

I would only watch it to see if they try out new combination of shots against each other to feel each other out for future matches.

Other then that, these matches don't tell us much about the outcomes of the slam futures.

I will let the slams speak for themselves.

Currently Djokovic could possibly wipe away Nadal 6-3 6-3 at this final if he so desires, but at a slam, it's completely unpredictable as to what will quite happen. (The Nadal at the best of 3 matches, is not the same Nadal at the slams).

As much as this would be entertaining, a real man's test, would be if Nadal can take out these bad boys at the slams in succession. I would love to see that happen. And knowing Nadal, he can make that a reality. We saw what he did to Berdych and Soderling. And many other top players back to back like Djokovic and Federer.

Nadjokovic are excellent players, but they have so many roads to cross before they can be put in the same bag as Roger's.

I didn't miss Djokovic at all, it's obvious he's playing his best now. But we said exactly the same thing about Rafa at the US Open, he served out of his mind due to a change in grip. And his groundstrokes are now more aggressive than they ever have been. The improvement of Rafa on hardcourts has without doubt become a major problem for "new" Djokovic as shown at the US Open. Rafa's got the points on the board, it's now up to Djokovic to prove he belongs in this hardcourt head-to-head :lol:

I hope that Djokovic wins if they meet : Nadal is the very clear and superior number 1 but I would like Djokovic to challenge him, esp with clay coming up, and so far I think he still has a mental complex against Nadal.

There's no better place than hardcourts to get rid of that complex.

On hardcourts Djokovic imo is a better player than Nadal.

He could beat him in 2008 for instance when Nadal was very good (Cinci and crushing him in IW) : in the Olympics he just made a little bit too many errors but he had the upper hand imo. Always when they meet on hardcourts I felt it was only a matter of Djokovic playing less well than he can and making errors or not.

He started the US Open very badly, clearly a complex, also complained about his physique, played too short, he didn't start this match in good conditions and Nadal, who was in full concentration/motivation, could see and take benefit from that.

But I still think he should beat Nadal on hardcourts.

Indian Wells is a good place for such a meeting since the bounce is high then quite in Nadal's favour.

Lol, so you're one of the "Nadal won because the other guy played worse than when he beat Federer in that tournament" types :wavey:

yes, but I also definitely think that Fed would have lost to Nadal, contrary to what Wilander thinks.

Anyway, I'm sorry but Nadal is a very very good player on hardcourts, imo he played his best there from second part of 2008 to the beginning of 2009, also I liked what I saw in last WTF, because imo his backhand was not at his past level in 2010 on hardcourts except in the WTF (as for the US Open people speak a great deal about his serve but imo Nadal has always been a good server and he was better in that US Open but not so much),

but I've never been hugely impressed by him on hardcourts contrary to how I've been hugely impressed on grass.

Probably there's something I can't really feel about his game on hardcourts, and which I read one day, which is that he mostly concentrates on playing very deep balls on hardcourts to avoid being attacked : he doesn't clearly rush into the ball as he does on grass where he puts all of his body into the ball.

When he plays short he's very vulnerable on hardcourts, but when he plays deep you have to play very very well to beat him for sure, and that's the kind of challenge Nadal gave to Djokovic in the Olympics. Yet I have the feeling that if Djokovic plays at his best, the result mostly depends on him.

Indian Wells is the best place for Nadal to beat him yet he was crushed there in 2008.

Yet Djokovic can make the errors, as he did also against Fed last year when he lost 4 times to him. I'm still waiting to be sure that Djokovic can be as regular as he was in the beginning of 2008, and even can sustain it longer and go over his complex to Nadal.

Djokovic has the edge going into this match. But it's too early to talking about Djokovic's domination. You can dominate Nadal 100x if you want at a best of 3, he's a completely different beast when it comes to slams. There were a lot of suspicions that years back he couldn't touch Federer at a hardcourt slam, and he proved he wasn't just a clay courter nor a grass courter. There were suspicions that because Djokovic defeated him 6-3 6-2 or something at a few hard court slams, that he wouldn't be able to dent Djokovic at a hard court slam final (specifically USO the most fastest surface) and he dominated and outlasted Djokovic in 4.

I can see Djokovic defeating Nadal in slams on hard court in the near future but I think Nadal shouldn't be counted out completely.

With the players left in the draw, seems very likely that they both advance to final (though I hope Rafa will lose in SFs to anyone).. if in the final, Novak will win IMO

Would be a mug match, as usual Nole would be delighted to bend over to Rafalove and rush to the net to rapehug his bestest friend :hearts: :inlove:
Only Djoker can stop this comedy named "Nadal's Joke Draw in Indian Wells".
I hope he will crush flukedal in straights.Fedulltards buzzing like swarm around shit:lol: fi not Delpony Djokovic must be the savior to take down El Matador:lol: :retard:

I think that some of these "newer" Djokovic fans are being a bit "incautious," to say the least. I could not be more thrilled to see Djokovic playing as well as he is and getting these fantastic results, but there is not a whole lot that I take for granted.

The people acting like Nole is going to absolutely crush Rafa and that it's a foregone conclusion are going way over the top. (Hell, it's a bit premature to act like there's no way that he can lose to Federer, for that matter).

Don't get me wrong, if I was forced to bet money on it, I would put it on Nole, but I would not be terribly comfortable doing so; I would not regard it as an extremely safe investment. :)

I suppose the only thing that I will assert with confidence is in response to the posters who keep saying "Remember Djoko 2008": this truly is not the same Djokovic. Obviously, his undefeated streak will end, he will still suffer painful losses, etc. But I am quite confident that Djokovic has reached a turning point in his career(post Davis Cup victory 2010) and will meet with greater success in the tennis seasons going forward than he has in years past. I could be mistaken, of course, but I doubt it. ;)

Oh, and there's another thing I know with even more certainty: there is a LOT of Nolephobia floating around these forums (it's easy to spot--symptoms include rabid bitterness and bilious delusion, often interjected completely gratuitously into an otherwise harmless thread--Cf. Corey Feldman and Song-of-Cabbage). When Nole's undefeated streak is broken, whether sooner or later, the MTF haters will pounce with all the fury of hell itself. The post-match thread will reach 30 or more pages and will consist of pure vileness. :)

Post of the year. :worship:

I agree 100% with what you say.
Also Nadal is a different beast than Federer and even so Roger still can beat Djokovic now and then.
And yes, Nole's streak will end sooner or later and he will have tough losses. It's expected and understandable. But I also agree he's not the same Djokovic of 2008 who would make a disappearing act after winning his first grand slam. This Djokovic is much more matured and experienced, his mentality is also stronger. He has learnt the hard way. And it's starting to pay dividends...
But of course it's premature and unrealistic to talk about the end of Fedal. It is the end of their stronghold on men's tennis, but I have no doubt that both Federer and Nadal will continue to be at the top and win grand slams. It's only that now Djoko is in that equation again. And he has a good chance on becoming nº2.
As for the nolephobia... well just read my sig. :lol:
I'm ready for it. :armed:

That thing about Nole the real no.1 is more like a joke by some people on those real no...1234 things here on MTF. But I'm sure if they meet in the finals Novak will beat Rafa which will just mean that he's by far the best in 2011. on HC.

and Nadal whoops Djokovic here like he did at the US OPEN. honestly it seems like MTF in general has determined that Novak is going to evolve into the new GOAT and is unstoppable. YOu guys need a wake up call, 2 grand slams by the time he is 24 is just not that impressive! 'the real #1' yeah right, I just want to see him play someone who actuallly consistantly returns so you can be reminded that Djokovic is not all that

Well, you got your wish, a Nadal-Nole final.

Happy? :devil:

God SO CLOSE to being accurate. The first set was totally what i had meant when writing this, NAdal was actually giving Djokovic returns and moving around the court enough so that Djokovic was not just being given 'free winners'. unfortunately NADAL imploded, I can say I am a bit sad he did not give Djokovic a wake up call. I still do not consider Djokovic the next #1 or whatever, but he definitely played well.... of course Nadal (serve) was horrible. please Nadal instead give Djokovic a wake up call in Miami, if not then i totally will have to committ suicide, i am currently so dissapointed this thread was proved wrong a few minutes agooooooooooooooooooooo :(

awww man now i look really bad, but who would have known :shrug: :shrug:

at the time everyone was going nuts about Djokovic with little to base it on. i was totally wrong and he dominated 2011 but as is life. at least it was true, that Nadal gave him trouble.

Man i am kind of down just thinking about how wrong my forecast was for 2011, thank you MIMIC for bumping this and reminding me how bad I am at predictions.................. :worship: :worship:
