Will Djokovic surpass Federer?
 
We now can consider Djokovic winning the Australian slam as given. The relevant hypothetical question is if Djokovic win all four Slam this year, will Djokovic surpass Federer slam count at some point?

The possibilities are not hard to imagine given Djokovic flawless defense and striking offense ability now and in the next three years. Plus the **** machine for quick recovery, it it hard to see anyone beating him in a 5 set match.

Gosh... He is in the semi final (WITH SEEDS 2 & 3 STILL IN THE COMPETITION) of the first slam, so clearly it's time to start postulating on him getting the full boat.

I give up.

I think Federer's gonna stick around as long as he can to make sure that doesn't happen. Djoker won't make any progress at the French as long as Nadal is around. Murray's been pretty strong too.

It's all going to depend on how long Nadal's knees hold up and when Fed finally decides to let go, which I don't see happening anytime soon.

He probably won't pass the slam count. Even if he wins all four this year.

What I've seen from Djokovic makes me doubt him winning the AO more than I did before the tournament.

No.

Simple as this.

RajFederer 01-22-2013 02:44 AM

Egg takes care of it.. dont worry

forzamilan90 01-22-2013 02:45 AM

Ask Clarky.

Wow, let him win first.

Masayoshi 01-22-2013 02:53 AM

Djoker started peaking too late, and in too strong of an era. 2 all-time greats are swimming in these waters, and they've cost him a chance at the slam record. About 20 slams until he turns 30, he'd have to win at least 10-12 of those to put him in position to snag it post-30. It's not impossible, but I reckon with his style of play, he won't be able to maintain Nole 2.0 for 5+ years.

Warmaster 01-22-2013 02:54 AM

Like he was going to win the Grand Slam in 2012? Yup, that didn't work out either.

Even if he wins 2/year he still needs 6 years just to tie Federer. It's not going to happen.

djokovic2008 01-22-2013 02:57 AM

He can do it.

always_crosscourt 01-22-2013 02:58 AM

Nadal is the first question

Alchemy-Z 01-22-2013 03:06 AM

Murray just won the USO and has shed the never won a slam weight.

The pressure is off and he did well last year against Novak..and I think he has what it takes to win the AO this year.

next time Murray will feel pressure at a slam is going to be wimbledon because the press in the UK will be hyping it like crazy after last year.

Clarky21 01-22-2013 03:09 AM

Yep. It's going to be funny when it happens too. The hissy fits thrown by the very same *******s that were rooting for him endlessly against Nadal will be legendary.

Nole has the answer to every question Nadal can throw at him ;)

Djokovic will be lucky to even win a slam this year.......

Huh? He's already won the AO. No way he loses it now.

Bobby Jr 01-22-2013 03:30 AM

Djokovic's main role in the history books now is being Federer's main tail-gunner to prevent Nadal catching Federer.

It's working.
