Both players are young, and Djokovic is charging up the rankings with one Master's Title already, and it seems he can play on clay as well. I don't like him, I think he looks like Satan, but it seems that he is devilishly good as well. With Roger getting "old" and "fat" and should "retire" soon, Gasquet still not quite getting to that next level, Berdych being inconsistent, is this the next generation's main rivalry?

Djokovic will be the next Federer and Nadal will remain the king of clay for a long time but there will be an interval when Nadal will be number 1 before Djokovic steals that spot.

War, Safin!

The problem with the porcupine kid is there's something wrong in his head. The way he tanks sets for no explicable reason. The wierd things that are always happening to him during matches. The childish way he behaves. Yes, he's an incredible talent, but there are many in the ATP. So, I need more time to get on the Djoko bandwagon.

Yeah lets all write Federer off after losing a few matches. Was it not only a few months ago everyone on this board was saying Nadal was burnt out??

Djokovic has the game to start challenging both federer and Nadal but it is not there quite yet. I think he has a shot of being #1 in future but not for at least 2 years

And who will be? Gonzalez? Blake? Murray?

Federer ---> Nadal ---> Djokovic

Djokovic is still 19 and he plays magnificently. When Federer was 19 he wasn't as good as Djokovic is at the same age as can be seen by their results and their ranking at the same age (2000 - 2001 for Federer and 2007 for Djokovic).

I know, nobody mentioned the Floyd Mayweather Jr. of Tennis, this is just about Nadal and Djokovic. This is the third Master Series they've met in this year. They're both young and in the top ten, and the Son of Satan leads the tour in wins right now, and I think titles too.

Baghdatis72, I doubt you are reading this, but if you are, kudos to you sir. Epic prediction. :)

As early as 2007 there was already talk of Nadal being/becoming a transitional champion!

Epic prediction indeed! I hope you put some money on that 5 years ago :D
