Every single slam Djoker has won, he has had to face really tough players. He has never ever had a weak opponent in a semi final or a final. In most of them, he has had to face two of the fellow big 4 members. If you compare it to the field Nadal had to contend with in 2010 in particular, it becomes clear how unlucky he has had it. But personally I feel like it has boosted his credentials. Especially 2011, he went 11-1 against Fedal :worship:

Thoughts?

How many more Djoko threads are you gonna make? It was fun at the beginning but now you lost it.

Not this year no, more the opposite.

In other years he faced some tough adversaries, though.

Didn't he have Tsonga in the final for his first slam?
No he had federer for his first slam final in 2007 USO, he had tsonga for his second slam final but he had to play federer in the SF.

Novak has never won a slam without beating at least one of the big four

Yes, but he had to play and def. a prime Fed in semis. Now, some guys are going to mention 'mono' ... I don't buy that story btw. Djokovic played a brilliant match against Fed back in 2008. It was probably the best match of his life If you wish :yeah:. Nole was hitting some amazing shots ... You guys know that I 'love' both Nole and Fed btw.

Tsonga was also playing the best tennis at the AO 2008.

He played Tsonga, and x3 infamous choker Mary in 4 of his wins.

he failed to win in 2012 USO vs Ferrer and Mary and 2013 WIM vs. Del Potro (on grass :superlol: and Mary)

WEAK WEAK WEAK

When Djokovic has weak fields (2012 US Open, 2013 Wimbledon, 2014 US Open) he chokes them away :spit:

Dude, you are a Nadal fan. You know you have no right to talk about draws. 2010 and 2013 say high. Nadal couldn't even have a year half as good as Djoker 2011 facing significantly weaker competiton. He couldn't even beat injured Darcis at Wimbledon. So shut up because no one is buying what you are selling :worship:

0/10 trolling. You might as well say Melzer is tough for Nadal but Nadal is easy for Djoker. That won't backfire :devil:

That's a very unoriginal comparison.
Why?
I prove you: Tony Blair winning the British general elections in 1997? Legendary times and some hope for improvement, at last.

Mandy "the black sheep of Britain" Murray winning Wimbledon in 2013? A shameful win with a lucky draw, against a choking Verdasco, an erratic Janowicz and a super-tired/unmotivated Djokovic in the final.

Laughable, really.
Not that was WEAK WEAK WEAK (and undeserved)

Rafa had to defeat either Roger or Nole enroute in 12 of the 14 grands slams he won. The two slams where he did not beat Roger or Nole are FO 2010 and Wimbledon 2010. In 2010 Rafa won all 3 Clay Masters 1000 and the Clay Slam - FO, and FO without losing a set; so, he would have beaten anyone at FO 2010 anyways. At Wimby 2010, Rafa beat Andy, one of the Big 4, so, yeah, Rafa had it easy really to win the 14 slams he won. :rolleyes:

He's not exactly unlucky if he wins the slams, is he? He deals with his draws very well considering a good majority of them are incredibly tough. It's a welcome change from most of Nadal's titles :shrug:

That basically sums up the story of Novak's career. He was the youngest and, therefore, reached his near peak after Roger and Rafa had reached their peak. That is a major reason that his slam count is lower, especially compared to Roger's.

Djokovic was fine that final, don't be stupid. If he couldn't recover from his semi-final then he didn't deserve to win. Andy completely outclassed him, simple as that.

Indeed, Djokovic 8 slams so far counts as around 12
Nadal 14 slams count as 12
Federers 17 Slams count as 11
