Re: Should Djokovic skip Montreal to increase winning chances at US Open??

he will make the cincy call depending on montreal result.
he could also enter cincy and 'tank' it as he has done in prior years, if he has won montreal.

clay to grass is an easier adjustment imho....

Re: When all is said and done, will Djokovic be a GOAT candidate?

if djoker can get the next 2 slams he's in with a shout, as he's still active and peaking, with a weak field

needs to get 8 over the next 3 seasons by 31, and another 1 after the age of 31.

Re: Is grass tennis finished?

serve and volley is a suicidal tactic with modern racquet technology assisting passing shots from around the tramlines , and slower court speeds.

Re: Was that Federer's last real chance to win a slam?

djoker wont make the same mistake twice in the uso again. he knows about his tentative play hence he fixed it by being aggressive in the final yesterday.

Re: Djokovic's Project 18 - how possible is it?

12-14 is more than adequate due to healthy competitors like peak rafa, stanwrinka andy and roger.

he's on track for 12-14

18 is not possible. fed vultured on the weakest tennis era ever.
