What do you think?
u can clearly see djokovic's ability to win against anyone on all surfaces...he will definiityely win slams...however its impossible to se how many he will win until his career goes on
I voted up to 5.
im sorry, what is a carrier? i guess he would use UPS to ship stuff
What does tennis have to do with an aircraft carrier?
I didn't know Djokovic was a military general....
no he wouldn't. He would use and ABUSE FedEx!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i dont know how many he will win in his carreer but i wil tell oyu he aint gonna win the AO this year, Frenh open already taken by fed and nadal as well as wimbledon. USO... goes to fed
Oh, get over it. The new king is coming ...
depends on his "head"
Probably he will win as many as Hewitt
i voted none. tsonga will beat him tonight and he will become like coria after he lost to gaudio. Honestly though I could see him winning 5 or so, same as nadal
Djokovic can be the #1 player on hard court if Federer permanently goes to that Michael Chang counterpunching as he did in the AO (I sure hope Federer goes back to play aggressive tennis).
For the very least, he is 6 years younger than Federer and he will be the best hard court player when Federer goes to the decline.
I think he can 4-8 Slam titles.
I choose 8 like agassi. The kids got great potential.
I am really beginning to think the Joker could win 10 or more grand slams.
For the record, it's C A R E E R, not carrier. Does he want to ship stuff? A friend of mine works for FedEx, I could hook him up....
As for how many Slams he will win, let's just wait and see.
Grow up. For some people English is not a native language.
Oh, come on, mate. Not nice.
Well said. We all want Federer to play like an animal during the 2004-2006. Drop the Polo shirt and go back to the T-shirt. Stop playing with Pete Sampras.
I doubt he'll win a Grand Slam. Winning every major in a calendar year is just too difficult.
Huh, he already won a Grand Slam.
No, he's won one major.
What's the difference?
[EDIT] I see, you meant the Grand Slam; all 4 slams in a year?
Exactly. We need to be fair to Laver and Graf et al who truly won a Grand Slam.
We don't say someone has won a Triple Crown because they won one of the races. I don't know why so many people refer to a major as a Grand Slam. Then what do you call it when someone really wins a Grand Slam?
Didn't Laver have 3 out of 4 slams at one similar surface ? Or am I very, very wrong?
We will make the charts as far as Krajiceck...
(he won a major against who? status)
Laver actually won the GS twice. But, I get a little tired of hearing that because it is absolutely no comparison to today.
First, they were all played on grass in those days, can you imagine how Fed would do if they were all on grass. And secondly, the competition in the Laver days was NOTHING like it is today. I'm an old fart, I was watching and playing tennis in those days and trust me, it was a totally different level of play..
level of play is relative and shouldn't make it less impressive.
I don't recall when they played the French on grass.
Thanks, I thought it was something like that. I thought he played 3 grass court slams and one on clay, but 4 on grass is too much. If Fed played 4 slams on grass then he would have had triple Grand Slam by now, probably 2 out of those 3 times would be a calendar Grand Slam.
I don't know, should have, would have, but this means that there really is no comparison to today's game.
Uh, forgot to say that I think djoko can win up to ten slams. That't only if he stays injury free. If think about it, he can win USO and/or AO for the next 5 years, + one time Wimbledon. This seems possible for him.
It's all part of his plan to make more excuses.
What is a "caunting"? BTW, your name isn't as clever as you think is is.
He will win ZERO grand slams, in fact, I'm not sure if he will win another major.
Volt - Djokovic hater
Just a small amount of research before you post and you wouldn't need to embarrass yourself by suggesting that in the 1960s, the French Open was a grass court tournament.
What are you guys talking about? RG has been on clay since 1928.
You should use that spray on yourself. Troll.
I'm thinking he'll win around 6-7 slams but anything up to 10 wouldn't surprise me that much.He's becoming an amazing player and even people who don't like him will have to accept that and deal with it.
So good to hear you say that. So many people on this forum would benefit from reading this.
Reading what? His facts are not correct.
I think he was generalizing. I'm just assuming though.
Take a little time to read the posts in the thread before you say I embarrass myself. At first I said that I think there were 3 grass court tournaments and one on clay, then the guy said there were four, and as I wasn't born back there I took his words for granted. Whatever, the eras are still not comparable.
I'll be surprised if he wins more than 5, while noting that any is obviously an exceptional achievement. You have to give Fed another few months to get completely free of the mono, then we can start talking about his form and a possible decline, thing is he's still pretty damn good. Nadal is getting better on hards, and who knows what players are gonna develop- who's to say one of his own brothers won't come through and start taking titles from him in 3 years? Him and Jordi could become like the Williams sisters, but, you know, less manly...
Well at this point we dont know if he's going to be able to handle the pressure. He's got the game and is maturing but how many will he win remains a puzzle. He could be an early bloomer sticking around top 10 for a while but not having a major impact on the game, but more likely he will win at least a few more given that he has what it takes. Tennis can be a strange game sometimes and these kind of predictions are simply too early.
I don' think Djokovic will win 10 or more slams but I think he has pretty good chance to win a career slams in this current baseline oriented environments on all surfaces... especially when Nadal weakens on clay in the future or something like that...
I think since he already won a slam that its clear that he can handle the pressure. I'll peg him at 6.
None? I was pretty sure he won the AO 2008. So I guess that one is out.
I'll say 30: he'll take up doubles and mixed doubles (playing with Sharapova), therefore he will break Emmo's and Newk's records.
:razz::razz::razz: Yea right.
So Australian Open is...?
It's a major. Wimbledon is a major. Australia is a major. The French is a major. Win all 4 in the same calendar year, and you've won a Grand Slam. Win 1 and you haven't one a Slam, you've won a major. No, Djokovic will not win 5 Slams, or 10 Slams, it's unlikely he'll win 1. No one has won a Slam since Laver.
Sorry to single you out. I shouldn't have done that.
Hey, don't worry
About the Slams - isn't every major called "Slam", and winning all four of them in one year a "Grand Slam". I thought the op meant how many majors Djokovic will win, not Grand Slams. It's obvious he can't win 2, let alone 5+ GS
usually majors are reffered to as a grand slam. winning all four in a year is the grand slam. so you could say that djokovic will win 5 slams.
