    So far in his illustrious career so far he has claimed retirements over high caliber players at three of the slams.

    * FO retirement against Nadal in 2006.

    * Wimbledon retirement against Nadal in 2007.

    * AO retirement against Roddick in 2009.

    Yet has only claimed 2 slam titles so far in his carrer.

    Which historical milestone will he get to first? He has a chance in the next couple of years to achieve both and he would be the only man to do this!

    Why are these ridiculous trolling threads necessary?

    Is OP a fedaltard and feel threatened by Djokovic's recent success or is he just a pathetic hater?

    dont care tbh, look at the head to head, past prime roddick too :-/ novak will nevr have a carear of falling short at federers challenge, because federers ship is slowly sailing away atm (in no way writing him off but lets not beat about the bush 06ish was something else)

    think the point is djokovic had a period where he seem to be more prone to injury shall we say, than the average player. or roddick who hardly ever retires

    also just like to point out djokovic 2 sets to 1 down and break down, retired from heat exhaustion. Though althelts prepared for these big events?

    I would like to think career GS, but the FO will be very difficult with Nadal around for a few more years.

    The Career Retirement Slam can be his at the end of this year.

    there is no question he can win the AO and likely also the USO.

    he may also be able to win wimbledon. but the big question is whether he can come through nadal on clay. I believe he can beat him, but can he also do this in a best of 5 match at the FO?

    A prime federer couldn't beat nadal in RG, so it would be a huge achievement by nole. I wouldn't rule it out completely since he is in an amazing shape but it will be awfully hard.
