The irony is that if Djokovic does get close to it it will be Federer fans saying it is because the second half of Novak's career was played in a "weak era"

11 pages of people posting who adore 4th place. Luv the quarter-final thread too (8th place). Gloryhunters.

Ah, pardon. It was Nadal that was going for the RU slam last year at RG. No12 didn't want to comply though...

Dimitrov is certainly NOT weaponless - he has his hair and GOAT smile. Just ask Sharapova, she knows.

The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

It's not a streak though.

Blame mono, but it has to be conescutive.

Agree. 18 finals out 19 slams and the other one is a semi is ridiculous. That one and 11 non-clay slams won out of 12 played (2004-2007) are his most impressive achievements I think.

No I didn't. I said the achievement that shows the most consistency at slam level.

But x of xx just doesn't have the same ring to it as something consecutive.
