Re: Which player is the luckiest with the draws? [2015 Edition]

It will always be Nadal. Either he gets piss easy draws, the competition crumbles so his draws become easy or he plays a dead tired opponent in the final who had a much tougher draw. He is by far the...

Re: Djokovic GOAT at dominating opponents

So you think 2008 was his ascension to the top? Did he win 3 slams in 2008? Did he get the #1 ranking in 2008? Did he set a record 5 masters (including 2 clay spankings of Rafa) in 2008? You can play...

Re: Djokovic GOAT at dominating opponents

It's always been recent years since 2011 is the beginning of Novak's ascension. Maybe if you read instead of insisting on juvenile mentions of clay wins you would have noticed that.

Novak won 7...

Re: Djokovic GOAT at dominating opponents

Every match counts, it's just amusing that you have to bring up clay once again instead of conceding the point that in recent years Novak has owned Rafa most of the time.

Rafa won at RG and Novak is...

Re: Djokovic GOAT at dominating opponents

Rafa is usually not in Novak's half in tournaments so they mainly play each other in finals. What finals of important tournaments has Rafa made lately? None. He's either taking breaks or losing...

Re: Djokovic GOAT at dominating opponents

Get a clue about context before spouting nonsense. Clay is more limited in tour tournaments than hard courts, so it's much harder to defend and maintain dominance on hard courts. Both slam records of...

Re: Djokovic GOAT at dominating opponents

Novak played tough semifinals against either Del Potro or Federer in his losses to Nadal at the USO. Rafa simply benefited from laughable draws and a final opponent nowhere near his best. If Rafa was...

Re: Djokovic GOAT at dominating opponents

What's tragic is 14 slams and 0 WTF titles. Rafa can't make finals consistently so it's hard for Novak to spank him and reverse the h2h.

And once again, a mention of French Open, the consolation...

Re: Djokovic GOAT at dominating opponents

Nadal's streaks are nothing compared to being owned 7 times in 7 consecutive finals. I think Rafa is the only player in history to have lost 3 straight slams to the same player. Novak branded him...

Re: Xavier Malisse: Federer is fun to watch; Djokovic always plays the same way

The #1 tennis player in the world with the most efficient combination of attack and defense is boring to watch? Maybe for some, but not for me, I like Novak's movements and his beautiful backhand...

Re: The myth that Djokovic is an "aggressive player"....

Novak winning most of the rallies, whether short or long shows he was better from the baseline and hitting more effectively, which is what offensive tennis is all about. Federer also had 0 bps in the...

Re: Djokovic GOAT at dominating opponents

Novak's humiliation of Nadal with 7 consecutive wins including 3 straight slam finals won on 3 different surfaces surpasses anything Rafa can ever hope to do to him.

In 2014 Novak won the most...

Re: The myth that Djokovic is an "aggressive player"....

Novak is an offensive player and also the most efficient there is right now.

His latest match against Federer (Indian Wells 2015) highlights this fact nicely:

Forehand winners: Novak 11 > Federer...

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

Novak will probably do it unless there is someone who can challenge him consistently. He can lose but it won't matter unless the guy who beats him wins consistently, which nobody has managed against...

Re: Djokovic GOAT at dominating opponents

Novak dominates on all surfaces against the top 4 when playing well. The only reason he doesn't lead the h2h against Nadal & Federer is that they were lucky enough to play Novak during his worst...

Re: Most masters titles when all is done between Rafa, Fed and Nole?

Novak will have the most because he can contend for titles on all surfaces consistently. He beat Nadal in Rome 2014 to win the title and won 4 masters last year. He can win masters on Rafa's turf...

Re: Roger Federer sort of expects Rafael Nadal to pass him

Rafa is playing for history and with his determination, I expect him to match or surpass 17 slams.

Re: Will Djokovic surpass Borg & Sampras?

Tennis history changes very quickly. Once Novak reaches double digits, which he will, anything would be possible depending on the competition. So far, the next crop of players in their early 20s...

Re: Federer not (GOAT) in a specific Grand slam?

Federer collected a bunch of slams against mugs, not because he was dominant on any particular surface like Novak and Rafa.

Re: Agassi: Djokovic can become the first man since Laver to win CYGS

He can do it. He even beat Federer in a Wimbledon final, by playing average tennis on his worst surface. The problem is the motivation, not the opposition.

Re: Dubai [F]: Federer def. Djokovic 6-3 7-5

Of course he can. He's playing with the 2 greatest players in the sport's history and has managed to beat them in slams and challenge their domination.
Novak can surpass Federer in many categories....

Re: Federer still in prime best of 3

Horrible tennis from Novak has really given Federer fans and the media a lot to cheer about. :)

Federer's serve is the only reason he's still in the top 10. Baseline tennis is the focus these days,...
