Nadal is sort of the 'owner' of the FO winning it almost every year.

If he doesn't win it this year because it is played at a different time under conditions that doesn't suit his game so well would the title be asterisked?

Or would it be because there is now a roof and night sessions?

Discuss.

Djokovic fans are the masters of „would” and „if” threads.
I wonder why that is...

Are you kidding? All following March 2020 suspension is clearly asterisked. *

*Year of SARS2/Covid19 coronavirus- 42 tournaments suspended/cancelled including Wimbledon, Olympics, 6 Masters, Laver Cup, and NextGen Finals. 18 tournaments played before season suspension. 5 played since NY Aug resumption. 11 more scheduled to be played by the end of the year.

US Open wasn't Open. No qualifying, no fans.
No normal preparation. Lockdown environment.

No ATP Bonus pool money. No mandatory tournaments. Revised no-risk ranking system
Yeah, 2020*****

But that's nothing. 200,000 USA dead and close to 1 million worldwide in 6 months.

Sadly,
masterclass

All FOs from when Nadal retires until forever are asterisked since Rafa won't be able to win it.

The whole year is "asterisked". Everything, not just sports. Kudos to those who manage to give their best under the conditions.

But who will need an asterisk (=reminder of particular circumstances) for the year 2020? Do you also need an asterisk when talking about something that happened in Europe in the years 1939-45?

True. It just shows what incredible clay courters Djokovic and Federer are having won a FO title during Nadal's reign.

Djokovic even more so having crushed Nadal at the FO. If Djokovic wins the FO this year he'd be the GOAT.

Correction, since pandemic & then Fed retiring for season, the most vocal ***ers here have been Fedbots like Federest & SwissTennisGod.
