Even if there is no way to become the GOAT, there are a couple of significant numbers to chase this Summer and Fall (USO Series and Asian Swing).

Which one do you think he can achieve ?

EDIT : I will try to allow multiple choices, forgot 'bout it !!!!!

Some very confident Nole druze here ;)

EDIT EDIT : Too boring and difficult for me :p

Re: Multiple Challenge Summer for Kralj Nole.

Maybe you could start by listing them?
Indeed. Not sure which challenges you mean, but IMO Djokovic's biggest goals for the rest of this season should be (in order):

1) Win the USO
2) Win Cincinnati
3) Hold on to No. 1 spot to surpass McEnroe in about 12 weeks
4) Win the WTF
5) Win 2 more Masters titles to set new record for most Masters titles in a single season

3 is practically a given, the rest are all very doable but not guaranteed.

Edit: Ok, I see the poll now. No multi-options though?
From your list I would pick 1, 3, and 5.

Cinci, the USO would be great. I had to google 'kralj', it means the king, right?

Re: Multiple Challenge Summer for Kralj Nole.

1. Win USO (10 slams)
2. Win Cincy (MS Career slam)
3. Win another masters besides Cincy and break his and Rafa's record for 5 MS in single season
4. Overpass Johhny Mac's 170 weeks for 5th all time

H2H is irrelevant and after all he may not even meet Rafa and Roger till the season end
ATP record in points is even more irrelevant ...

OP you should've allowed multiple choice on your poll ...

If the wins Cincy he should be named Master Nole. Until he wins RG when he will be renamed to Grand Nole.

Grandmaster Nole. ;)

I have some nice memes in mind once that happens. :)

I'm hoping for USO and WTF, the rest would be a bonus. However, if he repeats the domination from the 1st half of the season, he will break every conceivable single season record there is. And ofc that would improve his career stats, too.

Re: Multiple Challenge Summer for Kralj Nole.

You should make it a multiple option poll.
Otherwise I'd just love a USO series sweep, which would instantly check all first 3 options on the poll. :drool:

Re: Multiple Challenge Summer for Kralj Nole.

Oops, I read this as eventual career achievements and wondered why all of the above was tards only. It will be very hard for rafito to make it deep enough in two whole tournaments in the rest of this season to even face Djokovic, so that was wrong of me to vote for aota.

Re: Multiple Challenge Summer for Kralj Nole.

Well we got it with a 16 145 and La Decema.

What are the new records Nole can achieve during the Asian swing then tillthe end of the season?


Absolute total of points :

There are 640 extra points to earn in Shangai

Total of points at the end of the season :

Official Best is 13 600 by himself
Unofficial is around 15 500 (translated) by Federer


His best season

2011 was 70/5 with 3 GS and 5 MS

2015 is 63/5 so far with 3 GS and 4 MS

Absoute Best Season

2006 by Federer with 3 MS 1 WTF 4 MS and 4 "500"

Weeks at #1

Mc Enroe is to be overpassed by the end of the Year

Apart from an Injury, #1 spot shouldn't be challenged before US Spring swing.

HtoH


Tied with Roger 21/21 and Down with Rafa 21/23
