    With such a weak era I would be surprised if he didn't dominate for the next 4-5 years. He has no competition so it will be easy for him to do it.

    back peddaling on the shoulder comments?

    oh btw...I dont think Djoker made Fed cry nearly as much as he made Rafa cry.

    Im pretty sure Djoker had rafa lying in the fetal position after some matches.

    What else is he supposed to say? My boy had a great year but I expect his performance to to go down a notch or 2?

    LolVile was a nadal fan until Djoko started owning him.
    He then became a djoko fan.

    oh I forgot:

    LOL Dard!

    I don't think he's a TRUE fan of Nadal. When Nadal was winning, he worships him, but when Nadal loses, he abandoned him. If he is a fan of Nadal, he would stick with him whether if Nadal is winning or losing. Now he jump on Nole's ship b/c he's #1. Watch him jump off once Nole struggles for awhile. I don't consider him as a fan of any player.

    LOLville is:

    1. Fed hater(notice the sheer number of hate threads he made about the guy, not to mention insulting all of his family members, from his wifte, sister to his parents)


    Large gap.


    2. Nadal fanboy(routinely makes excuses for him and can't accept Nadal can ever be beaten when inform and healthy).

    Don't see why Djoko can't be dominant for another 4-5 years. Question is whether it will be a rivalry, trivalry or Fed like monopoly. His GS count will vary accordingly.

    He won't dominate for 4-5 years. Not even a younger Federer did that. After the way Djokovic ended 2011 with a 6-4 win-loss record after the US Open, he needs to start 2012 well to get back to all this "domination" talk.

    I don't think Djokovic can dominate for 4 or 5 years when he can't even crown his year with a YEC like Federer used to do when he dominated. All of Fed's seasons where he won 3 slams he also won the YEC.

    Why does every other player have to measure up to Federer? :-?
    Yeah we get it, Federer is an all-time great! On the flip side, not even Federer in his absolute prime was able to do the kind of damage to Nadal that Djokovic has done.
    And Djokovic has also won the YEC.

    How about first awaiting how he will do coming season before making any claims about the coming four, five years?
    He already broke down post-USO this year and we've yet to see how he'll come back at the AO.

    Not in the year when he won 3 slams but in a year where he was titleless since Rome and was fresh for November.

    Let's face it, Federer kind of domination is very rare.

    I'm not even sure Djokovic can back this year with another year with multiple slams in 2012.

    As for Nadal, he was lucky he was a bad matchup for Federer. Even in 2004.

    Djokovic will be top 5 for at least another 3 plus years.

    Doubt his being dominate to that extent maybe have another great year like 2011 winning 2-3 slams but not every match. Never really know what will happen....maybe Murray may dominate for the next 3 years.

    His domination is possible for 3 or 4 years but if I was Djokovic I would be very pissed that Vajda would publicly make such a presumptuous statement.

    ^^It is presumptuous. 4 or 5 years is a long time.

    Oh well, he's had an amazing season ... a little hype is to be expected, I suppose.

    They were talking over his voice in French the whole time.... He said he believes he can stay at the top level for another 4/5 years not that he would "dominate". When asked if Djok was a perfect player, he said in his opinion "perfection" is always far away. He didn't come across arrogant at all in the interview.

    And you **** on any poster that happens to have kind words for Federer even more, don't you? No difference whether some of those posters happen to like Nadal as well. Man, you truly are a sad person.

    Does it really hurt *that* bad?

    I think that Djokovic can be number one in the world and win a couple of majors the next few years but I don't think that he will do nearly as well as he did this year ever again. But it's hard to say though because if it can happen once it can happen again.

    You forget that Nadal has now lost his mental strength, and Fed is only an indoor player !!

    Only Nadal had a strong era.:)

    But the question is, will Djokovic TRY to repeat this season once again or will he decide to do what Federer and Nadal tend to do which is try to stay healthy and put his best foot forward only in the Slams?
    I refuse to believe that Djokovic actually would want to win everything he possibly can. He's already made his statement. He said he wants to win Slams. No mention of wanting to win every tournament he plays.

    That is unusual. Djoko not beating his chest and trying to start a war in the stands. Or maybe that was just his family. Anyways, maybe the Djoker is starting to grow up. Oh, and telling his family to shut up. 'Bout time.

    Likes of federer,nadal and murray plus young guys such as raonic,tomic is always there and every improving delpo will be a force to reckon with.You may never know what will happen,anyone can spring surprises..
    How many people here that expected nadal to loose so convingcingly to novak after dominating 2010??
    Novak is no fedrerer who will dominate everything for next 4 to 5 years,his game is very physical which has it's own limitation..People will realize this next year..

    Marián Vajda was just bluffing. I think he just want to scare other players and create a false sense of confidence for Djokovic. You can't dominate tennis for 4 or 5 years by playing brutal, running-all-day-long style of tennis.

    Too many folks are looking for the next Federer. I just don't believe Djokovic can have another year yet alone another 2 to 3 years of playing at this level.

    I can't find see a weakness in his game, particularly now that his forehand is such a weapon.
    But dominating over that length of time is a huge ask.
    Having said that he's got Rafa where he wants him and Fed is now 30, so his chief rivals both have question marks in terms of the match-up in Nadal's case and the time Fed has left.
    Hard to see anyone else seriously challenging him though.
