Re: Djokovic now 8-8 in slam finals

Ouch. There's no way around that. He'll hopefully build back toward a run that favorably and decisively tips that W-L. If not, he'll cement his place among the lower half of any list of tennis' greats.

Re: Djokovic now 8-8 in slam finals

He was completely outmatched today. Nothing he could do, or anyone could do, against this version of Stan. 8-8 is pretty bad though.

Re: Djokovic now 8-8 in slam finals

Djokovic will be remembered as a tennis player with massive talent but with a bad head and prone to surrender in tense moments. Sad if he doesn't close the Career Grand Slam because he deserves it, but today Stan was incredible.

Re: Djokovic now 8-8 in slam finals

16 slam finals speaks to his talent and geniousness, BUT being 50% when it counts most also tells a story about the kind of competitor he is...

He's not the strongest mentally. But the stat could be even worse.

Djokovic: 8 / 8 In Slam Finals. How do you explain it?

This is quite astonishing. Nole is 8 wins 8 losses in 16 slam finals ... Will that define his career? Why do you think he keeps coming up short?

He has a subpar record in slam finals. His career trajectory tells me he will end with similar numbers to Lendl.

That Jordan/Lebron argument, I lose some hope in humanity every time someone uses it seriously. But to your question, yep, better for Nole to lose in R1 than make it to the final.

Nobody suggested that. But why do you think he comes up short? Just bad luck? I don't think he got tight today. I do think he should not have lost that US Open to Murray ..
