The DCGS is the more significant achievement than another Nole Slam.
Definitely will put him above Nadal, will need the CYGS to go above Federer.
The chances though are not as good as was straight after the AO though, he seems to have gone off the boil, possibly preparing for the clay though.
Of course not. In which world would 16=20? Too soon for this question.
Just because he wins his majors in bunches does not make him greater than someone who has won many more overall.
It just means he held his form during a specific time when the rest of the field could not match him for whatever reasons (I'm not going down a "Weak Era" crap path).
This question will have more relevance if they are ever tied, so not even a DjokoSlam and a true Grand Slam (A "Budge Slam") this year would do that. If those two feats came to pass Novak would still only have his project 18,
But winning RG would equal RAFA, and arguably give him the edge on RAFA for the moment due to a higher short term domination factor.
Now that particular Djokovic-Nadal scenario would be a thread certainly more worthy of discussion at the moment. Who will be the first to create it?
Laver is head and shoulders above his rivals, and some people even put him ahead of Federer despite the massive difference in slams won (Federer 20, Laver 11)....all because of his Calendar Year Grand Slams (one in the Open Era, one before).
One could argue, Djokovic's 2 "Djokovic Slams" (if he wins RG, which I pray to God he doesn't) would be more impressive than Laver's 1 Calendar Year Grand Slam in the Open Era :armed:
He meant in the context that he lost to Nadal only 3 times in the final when he had direct chance for the trophy, as we have seen multiple times, beating Nadal in some early stages is not a guarantee for the final win here either... another tough customer might appear from out of nowhere (like Federer in 2009 and Wawrinka in 2015)
I mean, the year 2020 in tennis is really something else.
According to local prosecutors, Basilashvili assaulted his ex-wife in a country house near Tbilisi on May 21st. He was arrested. The court today determined he could be released on bail of ~$31K. The main hearing is scheduled on July...
We were looking for that great QF. Federer needed to beat Tommy Robredo (LOL) and the in-form Nadal needed to beat Kohlschreiber.
But it wasnt meant to be as Tommy Robredo ate Roger Federer alive.
Where does this rank?
this is what US OPEN`s final will look like, (of course with two top players), unless you prefer the ambiance of the empty stands...
some, here in MTF, even defend it`s better this way, without the crowd favouring one of the players, my god what we came to!
We will continue to simulate the season with the second Grand Slam of 2020 - Roland Garros. The draw for the events will be completely randomized. Qualifiers are randomized as well and the WCs are chosen by me.
ALL-NEW - You may only vote ONCE EVERY TWO HOURS this week AND matches are best of...
