It's true. Across all grass courts, he isn't the best-of-gen, but on Wimbledon Center Court, for sure.

And that is why there is just no need for him to play a warmup event - he would likely lose, and it would bear no resemblance to conditions on Centre Court. He only need come through one match on no.1 Court, and his rock solid core game, peerless returning and vastly improved serve get it done on Center.

Djokovic doesn't waste time at Mickey Mouse tournaments like runners-up and semifinalists do. Only one grass tournament that matters and it isn't Halle.

Nadal - born on June 3, 1986
Djokovic - born on May 22, 1987

Age-wise absolutely, but in terms of results this is nowhere close. Rafa was a early bloomer meanwhile Novak is a late bloomer.


Novak Grand Slams wins between 2005-2010 = (1)

Nadal Grand Slams wins between 2005-2010 = (9)


Novak Grand Slams wins between 2011-2015 = (8)

Nadal Grand Slams wins between 2011-2015 = (5)

I will Always remember this match as peak Federer vs peak Djokovic. Djokovic is the best grass courter of all time, but not the greatest.
