Default Re: Djokovic: Offensive or Defensive Player?

A couple of seasons like 2011 for Djokovic and to be honest he wouldn't need 16 Grand Slams to cement his legacy.. He would be considered GOAT if he has a season like this 2012 and 2013 and retired without having to play ever.

Default Re: Djokovic: Offensive or Defensive Player?

Both. Depends on who he's playing and what mood he's in. Offensive at heart though, and sure as hell better to watch when he's going for his shots.

Default Re: Djokovic: Offensive or Defensive Player?

He's a player that can play both styles, although primarily, he uses a defensive style against the 'lesser' players and when playing Nadal/Federer/a big match he'll be an offensive player.

People have a common misconception of thinking that the only way to play aggressive is to come upto the net. Djokovic is probably best described as an offensive baseliner, although I feel that is a simplified description of his game; he's just someone who can play both styles comfortably and as good as the other.

There's a difference between ''accused'' and ''proved''

Federer would have been squished like a tomato had he opted to be pro basketball. Federer is comparable to Steve Nash as a point guard.
