    If (and only if) Federer defeats Nadal at RG, he will defeat Djokovic as well.

    Fair enough. But still it's very questionable if 37 year old Federer could recover after putting such a huge effort to cause that big of an upset and manage to pull off a win against the next RG favorite too. I think we can agree that Djokovic is a worthy 2nd best clay player for this season.

    The thing is he would most probably be drained after his effort to beat Nadal in BO5 on clay. Djokovic could easily capitalize that. I'd say Djokovic and Nadal were comparable in this year's clay events as well.

    The French Open draw was perfect,

    Obviously it's not Nadal's fault everyone around him fell apart, but not playing any top 25 player at all, with Delpo not having anything left in the tank after his previous demanding matches... That's pretty bad, and I don't think the comparison of winners' seeding makes the degree of...

    No, I don't think it was a difficult road to the title. Djokovic was convincing, but he wasn't tested as much as he could have been.

    Should we go back one year earlier to see the biggest gem of them all? :eek:

    2019 French Open - ATP Thread

    I wish it would be a repeat of the AO where Nadal's play deceived us all due to a soft road to the final, with Djokovic ending up exposing the false dawn. But, this is the French Open. So the above will just remain my fantasy.

    What a joke. Looks like US Open cakewalks aren't enough anymore.

    The draw will begin in just over two hours. I bet the one time I do want a Fedovic projected semifinal at a Slam, they will have a different draw. :-D

    Since the start of 2010, Djokovic has won 14 slams

    He is undoubtedly the best in that period.

    Today is Novak's 32nd birthday... Lets see where big 3 stands at that age...

    When you're not in your 30s the weak era doesn't matter. Unless you are Djokovic. The cutoff for him is 27, or Wimbledon 2014 in tennis calendar terms. -- They are close. Federer got to 15-17 Slams the quickest but then had a near five year drought. I'd still bet on him holding the record...

    Nadal has been in the top 10 for 735 weeks.

    I think his lowest point was 10th, after he lost at 2015 French Open. Barely kept that streak alive.
