Probably 5 or 6. His game will begin to suffer in the next 2/3 years and there will be some better challengers too.

Not only do we need a clown for the ATP circus, but also for the MTF discussion board. Luckily we just got one with the openly baleful wording pertaining to the current Wimbledon champion by the illustrious Croatian OP :)

Maybe. Or he might adapt like Roger did. Focus on the less physical play. But can't say he's been grinding it like few years ago. He seems more fit than Roger was at 28, but can't say if all the grindfests wore out his body. I hope he lasts atleast till 31 on really high level. Seems possible.

It's possible, but things like return game and general movement will gradually get worse as he approached 30.

I simply can't see Novak as a more volleyer, and he will need to shorten out the points.

No more. Federer won't be around forever to play at 150% against Murray for him.

Brave Andrew still yet to lose a set against the Plexicushion warrior on grass. What a great man. :tears:

You do realize that Andrew is same age as Novak? And that he had way more injuries? :)

As long as somebody takes out Murray for him like it happened in 2014 and 2015, the sky is the limit. Only Murray can play great on grass and is still in his prime.

His game on grass isn't very good. But that means room for improvement, especially with becker at his side. I always had the feeling that becker was brought on to aid the transition out of the physical grindfest game that killed Nadal. Djokovic is a smart one for sure.
