    LOL at the last choice! some of you are too mean!

    Anyway I think Djoko has the game to beat Nadal but he lacks will and determination for when the going gets tough.

    so if he wakes up and everything is clicking then he could very well blast Nadal off the court, but the likelihood is Nadal will win most of their exchanges as he wants it so much more!

    I say he beats Nadal at A.O 09

    He's gotta get to another grandslam final first...
    And odds on, i think the AO 09 may be a long shot, no? :p

    never but he will beat Fed in the Roland Garros semi if Fed doesnt get lucky with Joker on the other side of the draw for the 4th year in a row.

    That will never happen.



    The last choice should be "when a deranged serbian fan stabs Rafa"

    If he's lucky to get to the final of Us open 2009 and meet nadal then he has a good chance but outside of that he will never beat nadal at a slam final

    Nadal became his pigeon for the whole of 2011.

    Isn't indoor tennis a part of one's overall career?

    I am certain if they played more (off clay) last year, Nadal would have lost more times than not, the meetings would be split on grass but on hard courts Nadal would be finished as soon as Djokovic walked to the court.

    This is my point about the grand slam or 3 slams on 3 surfaces in a year not being all they are cracked up to be by some..

    One year is not the be all and end all..

    Apparently it is when Federer and Nadal and even Djokovic are involved.

    Priceless when you consider what happened in 2011.

    Epic bump indeed.
