Can Novak Djokovic win the CGS/CYGS in 2011?

I think so and i think it will happen. He is just FAR too good at the moment and is light years above everyone that isn't named Federer or Nadal. Federer is in decline however and i can see him winning a few slams ala sampras in 2002 right now however everything is off for him and he has more important things to worry about. Djoker is WAY ahead of Nadal in every department. He ios fitter, stronger and wants it more. Nadal has been in worrying form since winning the US Open last year and i cant see him beating Novak. Simply put Novak right now is the complete player. He is too good.

On Clay i can see him winning the french ahead of Nadal. He comes in as the fave, easily. Nadal is on a low and Djok is on a high. Novak can beat Nadal on clay and he will prove it in Paris. His movement is top notch and he can get too everybody no matter how hard it is to return. His serve is the best it has ever been and he is banging unreturnables left right and center. He controls every point with his pent rating and authorizes groundstrokes forcing the opponent constantly on the back foot and no room to breathe. His return is DEADLY, the other day i said murray had a better return...i was wrong...very wrong. Novak is aggressive and immediately takes control of the point and is always playing the way HE wants to play. This is domination and he is unstoppable. everything is clicking. Mentally he is a MONSTER. Never gives up and never loses that edge that makes his game so efficient and effective. As others have pointed out he has no weaknesses and is almost impossible to break down. I cant see how Nadal can break down Novaks defensive wall for a sustained amount of time whilst Novak brimming with confidence has it all too prove and will beat Nadal on clay. he's the best player in the world right now bar none

On Grass, the only player who can stop him is Roger. BUT he has made the semis here before while playing badly. Again players will have to play their VERY best tennis is they want a CHANCE of taking the game to him but Novak is so flipping good right now thats not going to happen. He WONT let it happen. He's so clinical it's scary. The determination and drive that allows players to win on a consistent basis is there and its there for all to see. He has the look and he doesn't accept defeat. US Open is the fave, once again Roger is only challenge. We got an early look today at how Djok is firmly ahead of Nadal on HC's as he blew Rafa away with such ease. Novak never looked like he was going to lose and that is what makes a champion. That arrogance and grit that made him so sharp at the beginning of 2008 is back and it adds another dimension to his game. everything is so solid that i'm drawing blanks on anyone beating him when it matters. He has the steel and experience and i don't think he can be stopped. This year he has played every opponent their is too talented/flashy players to big servers to retrievers and beaten them all. It's incredible. The amount off pressure he can put his opponents under is sublime and his game is the defines solidarity. I could go on.

Does anyone else agree?. Novak has shown me that he has what it takes. He has an all surface game. he has beaten everyone. He has the confidence and the support. It's all there. I am looking as hard as a can to find a way in which he could lose to anyone not named roger but i just cant see it. He mixes defense and attack in such a consistent but damaging way.

Would be stunned if Djokovic won a CGS...

If he wins the french open then we can start having that discussion.

Also, Djokovic is NOT the favorite to win the french open. Being the favorite is not subjective. Look at the odds. Nadal is a HEAVY favorite to win RG, rightfully so.

Nadal had him dead and almost buried today, he just forgot to seal the deal. No way is he beating Nadal on Roland Garros this year, next year, I can see him do it.

Put last years Clay season in bag and throw it away. He was crap then and he knows it. In the past however he has shown that he can win a slam on dirt. Again tell me one reason why he cant? He can thrive on the slow surfaces where he slide and take the time on his shots that he craves. No one can rally right now like Novak and he is going to be a BEAST next month. Again, there is no weakness that i can see.

No he didn't. Novak fell asleep and the woke up. At the US Open 2009 Novak destroyed Nadal for a set in a half but his problem was that he couldn't keep up mentally and with consistently. Now he can.

The next player to win the calendar slam will be Murray, when he gets to his peak around 2013.
As I've said many times, after the current top 3 fall, Murray will be the next force in tennis.

I don't see Djokovic winning another slam this year.
His current form is due to bad opponents.

Beating Nadal on clay is almost impossible and when Nadal slumps and burns out, Djokovic will be out of the picture and slumping bad too.
That is when Murray will peak and he will win all the slams.

Before you all say I'm trolling, I'm being serious...
Murray has sooo much talent and he has yet to reach his peak.
He can be very very good on clay when he is at his best.
He will get a consistent level of amazingness in the future and when he does, he wll be the main force in tennis, being #1 and having all of the slams at the same time.

People get waaay too ahead of themselves in tennis. Like when Fed lost 5 straight to Rafa...said he was done...he came back and won 3 more GSs including the CGS. Same when Nadal was injured in 2009...he won the CGS too and...3 more GSs. Everyone is over-reacting now as well.

Nole is playing lights out tennis right now but eventually people will figure out ways to beat him. Fed found the right game in the 2nd set yesterday but he went mentally kaput in the 3rd. The competition will catch up to Novak. By competition I mean the top 5 in the world ;).

Oh btw...I think he won't win the CYGS.

I can see Djokovic will the US open this year. He will be very tough to beat on hard courts. But on clay and grass, we need to wait and see. It will be fascinating to watch him play Nadal on clay to understand where his current level is against Nadal, because that could basically decide RG this year. If he is able to beat Nadal, RG will be very interesting this year.

Aloimeh
03-21-2011, 04:15 AM
I think his chance at Wimbledon depends on his performance at RG. Ironically, I think he will be better on clay than on grass, so all things equal I would say RG is a better chance than Wimbledon, but if he by some luck wins RG, he would be extra motivated to get Wimbledon as well.

All of this is premature. We need to at least see Monte Carlo first. But given his history on clay, his superb form and confidence, and his dismantling of Nadal today on a slow hardcourt at IW, I think he has a decent chance at RG, say 20%.

He wont win, simply because he isnt a favorite on clay and on grass. I would give him a chance at the US open, but even that isnt a given. He is having a great run of form- and it will end soon after it started. There is a reason he is number 3 for so long- He wont be able to keep up the form.

Obviously, this was already long-settled before today, but it's worth emphasizing right now: your predictions here are somewhat undermined by your recent insistence that Djokovic could not win the IW final. ;)

Mere hours after your "certain" prediction has exposed you as the complete clown that you are, you're already back on the horse and making more "certain" predictions about Djokovic's inability to beat Nadal.

The icing on the cake is the irony of the complaint in your signature regarding the "level" of posting at MTF. G.K. Chesterton once responded to an essay invitation from The Times (UK) on the subject "What's Wrong with the World?" with a letter that read simply, "Dear Sirs, I am. Sincerely yours, G. K. Chesterton."

I think that it may be time for a little candid self-reflection. :yeah:

Beating Nadal on clay is almost impossible and when Nadal slumps and burns out, Djokovic will be out of the picture and slumping bad too.
That is when Murray will peak and he will win all the slams.

Before you all say I'm trolling, I'm being serious...
Murray has sooo much talent and he has yet to reach his peak.
He can be very very good on clay when he is at his best.
He will get a consistent level of amazingness in the future and when he does, he wll be the main force in tennis, being #1 and having all of the slams at the same time.

I finally don't agree with you on this one. Novak has proven to me after today that he can mantain this form on a consistent basis. Beating Nadal on clay IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE. This isnt the old Djok. The scary thing is that he is a better player than the 2008 version and he is now older and wiser and less prone to slip ups. Lets face it since Federer declined in 2008, Nadal has No competition on clay, where he has largely been untested. Now he has that competition. I cant see Rafa handling Novak. Nadal cant grind a player like Novak into submission. Novak is the prototype for the ultimate clay player. Again where are his weaknesses?

As for Murray, dunno.Looking at his form from this year and his inability to bounce back from tough defeats (all Slam winners can do this like Federer,Nadal,Sampras etc) show me he wont win a slam. I hope i'm wrong though

Novak is unstoppable.

I think his chance at Wimbledon depends on his performance at RG. Ironically, I think he will be better on clay than on grass, so all things equal I would say RG is a better chance than Wimbledon, but if he by some luck wins RG, he would be extra motivated to get Wimbledon as well.

All of this is premature. We need to at least see Monte Carlo first. But given his history on clay, his superb form and confidence, and his dismantling of Nadal today on a slow hardcourt at IW, I think he has a decent chance at RG, say 20%.

Kinda agreed. Partially. I would have Rafa as the fave 60-40 but once again Djok thrives on this. Novak has a mental edge and he knows he can win. That lingering doubt is GONE. He's matured greatly and he rampant all over the court. His motivation is back and he doesn't want to lose it. He has that look in his eyes. The Federer look from 2004-2007. The look that says 'nobody beats me whatever the circumstance'. He's always been better than Nadal he just needed to translate that into results. Now he is translating it into results.

It was a thread that I started about the golden slam. As you can see, this title gets it wrong. It would be calendar, not career, should what the OP suggests ultimately take place.

It is both, Roosevelt :rolleyes:

He wont win, simply because he isnt a favorite on clay and on grass. I would give him a chance at the US open, but even that isnt a given. He is having a great run of form- and it will end soon after it started. There is a reason he is number 3 for so long- He wont be able to keep up the form.

That is all optimism from you. Guess what that says fuck all in the grand scheme of things. Your hope wont stop Novak. The reason he was 3 in the past because he played like the number 3 and Federer was miles better. Now that federer is having a late sampras finish, Novak will capitalize.

You see, a tennis expert like myself has many tips and tricks when judging the game.

Never judge the future on the past ;)


Obviously, this was already long-settled before today, but it's worth emphasizing right now: your predictions here are somewhat undermined by your recent insistence that Djokovic could not win the IW final. ;)

Mere hours after your "certain" prediction has exposed you as the complete clown that you are, you're already back on the horse and making more "certain" predictions about Djokovic's inability to beat Nadal.

The icing on the cake is the irony of the complaint in your signature regarding the "level" of posting at MTF. G.K. Chesterton once responded to an essay invitation from The Times (UK) on the subject "What's Wrong with the World?" with a letter that read simply, "Dear Sirs, I am. Sincerely yours, G. K. Chesterton."

I think that it may be time for a little candid self-reflection. :yeah:

Would like to hear more from you on this topic.

Epic thread. Djokovic escaped pumped out Nadal in 3 hard sets and he's supposed to defeat him at RG? :lol:

errr no. Today, Novak got over that mental block. Thats important. he outplayed Rafa and unlike in the past he did it till the end. He no longer fears Nadal and he not only will he outplay Rafael, he will do it with confidence. confidence is key. This was such a CRUCIAL victory. BIG

Is Federers_Mate giving praise to Djokovic? :eek:
I may need to pinch myself.
All aboard on the bandwagon. :rocker2:

I have never liked Djokovic. You know that. However you as a fan will witness success, something that i am accustomed to. I'm not going to sit here and troll my ass off and deny the facts. Novak is the best in the world and he is going to He will win every slam this year. Surfaces are all similar now and he can play on all off them. he is in scary form. Everything is going right. Only player who has a chance vs him is Roger, i have a hunch that the 3 recent losses will play off in his favor. But then again he has too play Roger first. I am convinced. The way Novak carries himself, acts. His posture and his movement. No more lapses. Its happening. OH ITS HAPPENING.

nole has proved he can push nadal on clay.

with a better mental approach he can surely beat him.

he's not that good of a mover on grass, which would be a problem

Exactly. Today he proved he has Nadals number. His movement is as good as ever and grass has slowed down ALOT. He's underrated here, i see him winning if he avoids Federer which i think he will.

Do you see any weaknesses? i don't...just strengths

Mate, what's with all these knee jerk reaction threads. First Dimitrov and now Nole will win the grand slam... I'd thought you'd seen enough tennis to see things can change in an instant and long term predictions in the sport are almost impossible to predict.

To answer your question.. a simple no from me..

LMAO :haha: :haha: Now that Federer is in a bad spot you change bandwagons to the player you think has the best chances of stopping your hated Rafa, you're beyond pathetic :lol:

If Djokovic won't win Monte-Carlo he stays without clay title in last 24 month.

No. Nole can't beat Rafa in a best of five match on clay (he still could't win a best of 3 match, but still), and I don't think he can beat Rafa or Roger on grass.

What a mug thread, of course not. Nadal has the French, Federer will snag one last Wimbledon and Delpo will take the USO.

MTF never disappoints with the knee jerk reactions.

Next week there will be a new GOAT when Djokovic loses to someone.

Negative,, Novak is still no match for nadull in BO5,, nadull's bad serving "allowed" novak back into the match. Novak didn't raise his level against nadull.
NO MORE SLAMS for the serbian book it. Del-po is fit n' healthy now.

Pretty funny thread. Nadal had perhaps his worst serving day and was in his first tournament back playing mid-level tennis for him and still could have won without much of a problem.

From that you extrapolate all this?

Easy there, son.

CYGS LOL, he still needs work to do. He's an amazing player.

But even if he was strong, his body would give up. He's physically vulnerable right now. Hence why he's got that thing on his knees.
