Re: Will Novak take a DOUBLE Career GS ??

Nadal still has a better chance, but I can definitely see Djokovic winning at least 2 of the required 3 slams.

Re: If Nole were to win CYGS and CYM1000, where would it put him?

He'd have 11 slams, 29 Masters (a record, 2 ahead of Nadal), a CYGS, and a highly unique season of unprecedented dominance. I'd still rate him below Federer (6 more slams) and probably just below...

Re: Djokovic vs Nadal - who has the better resume outside of Grand Slams?

Nadal by a small margin because of his Olympic Gold.

Re: Stakhovsky:"If you travel with a coach as a top100 player, you earn 20-30.000$/ye

Of course, you need a popular sport to become a popular player. But the supporting cast is replaceable.

Re: Stakhovsky:"If you travel with a coach as a top100 player, you earn 20-30.000$/ye

I don't see any problems here. What players earn is ultimately directly linked to how much the public cares about them and their contribution to the game. They are lucky they can make a living by...

Re: Have we been living in the Djokovic Era for years without even realising it?

Djokovic is certainly the best player over the 2011-April 2015 period, but I agree with others that this doesn't automatically mean that he dominated the entire period.

To see why, let's look at...

Re: Federer fans - Would you exchange Wimby 15 for RG 15 ?

I'd prefer a FO for him if I had to choose one slam. USO would be my second choice, Wimbledon third.

At both USO and Wimbledon he shares the open era record, but at the USO it has been much longer...

This, pretty much. Even stating a simple fact (without even claiming it to be important) is too much for some overly sensitive individuals.

Re: Miami SF: (1) Djokovic def. (22) Isner 7-6 (7-3) 6-2

Funny, how can one possible be tired after 1 set... When a player is on a good run and then loses, fatigue is often mentioned. Apparently he wasn't fatigued in his last match, even though by then he...

Re: Young guns not doing it. Are we heading for the era of the top 2 up until 2020?

The top 2 places will probably remain occupied until 2020. They may become vacant afterwards due to lack of eligible players.

Re: Nadal's streak consecutive weeks in ATP Top 5 is under threat

Djokovic has a fair chance at the record for consecutive weeks in top 2 (135 behind Federer now).

Nadal still has a very decent chance at the record for total weeks in top 2 if he regains his form.

Re: Nadal's streak consecutive weeks in ATP Top 5 is under threat

Yes, the clay season will be very important to Nadal, and therefore very interesting. If he doesn't pick up his level (even if he makes a few semis and finals), he could drop out of the top 10....

Re: Djokovic now has the the record for highest hardcourt winning percentage

Great stats. Interesting that Federer is still slowly climbing "thanks" to his slow career start.

If you took each player's best career stretch of 5 or 10 years, thereby eliminating slow start and...

Re: Djokovic now has the the record for highest hardcourt winning percentage

Yes, stats like these have different meaning for active and retired players, and playing well past your prime is punished. Still a great figure for Djokovic though.

Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

Your arguments rely strongly on what has happened in the past. While it's good to look at the historical perspective, things do happen for the first time all the time. For example, in the past you...

Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

Yes, but his big advantage is that there may be no great rivals the next 2-3 years. Federer in his late twenties/early thirties did have prime Nadal and Djokovic, two all-time greats.

That said, a...

Re: Can Djokovic pass Federer for most weeks at No. 1?

Strangely enough it's actually starting to look possible, but still not very likely.

If he stays injury free and no new guys start dominating, why not?

Re: Will Nadal tank to avoid JesusFed?

:( I really wanted to See Federer-Nadal, even though Nadal would still have won. At least now Federer has a decent chance to win the title.

Re: Indian Wells [QF]: Federer def. Berdych 6-4 6-0

Nadal may very well lose to Raonic or other decent players, but he has a way to play very well against Federer.

Re: Indian Wells [QF]: Federer def. Berdych 6-4 6-0

I'm afraid it won't. Their respective levels coming into the match don't seem to matter much. It would be great if Federer could win a set against Nadal though.

Re: Tommy Robredo = Most underrated player in the last 15 years.

Given the praise he receives in this thread and his decent results through the years, I'd say he's rated about right.
