    Djokovic News

    Well, it was still a RG final so Nadal was the heavy favorite heading into the match. Djokovic to be honest was on and off through both the Masters tourneys that he won. He needs to shorten his schedule and focus on the HC Slams and Wimbledon. I'd still favor Djokovic against Federer or Nadal...

    Why doesn't nadal play this type of tennis more often he surely has another wimbledon in him with such artistic play.

    He was serving for the third set during the tie break and had Advantage at 7-7 on Novak's serve in the 5th; no doubt in my mind that he'd have served it out had he broken. I know what I'm talking about.

    This loss just makes USO even more frustrating

    Serve and volleying down match point against Stan at AO'14 and losing US'14 SF to Nishi were appalling. Still think he'd beat Nadal comfortably anywhere off clay right now (he needs to stop overplaying the Masters and skip clay) but going 2-6 during 2013-14 will cost him the slam race.

    This loss just makes USO even more frustrating

    Don't think he will. Nadal will win a couple more slams at the very least; Novak will rue losing slam finals to Murray and US'2020 when he hangs up his racquet.

    I don't think Djokovic even played that bad

    Djokovic hit something like 55 UFEs; not his greatest performance to be honest. He needs to shorten his schedule and skip clay. His game is more serve centered these days, compared to 2012-14 where he could grind from the baseline.

    20-20: Who's your GOAT now? (Poll)

    Not GOAT, but I'd say more accomplished on the big stage. The surface distribution argument is overblown, it doesn't matter in my opinion.

    This loss just makes USO even more frustrating

    Djokovic needs to stop going for walkabouts at US Open and majoring in the minors (Masters, ATP 500s, 250s). He should drop clay, shorten his schedule and play the Masters as warm-ups for the big events. There's no doubt in my mind that he can still tie Federer's slam count if he stays focused.

    Yeah, that poster is a caricature at this point.

    I tip my hat off to the Nadal; thoughts on Slam Race

    Very crafty of Nadal fans to group together US and AO when both surfaces play differently. P.S. It doesn't matter anyways; a slam is a slam.

    I tip my hat off to the Nadal; thoughts on Slam Race

    Posted this last year; I'd rank Nadal ahead as the better player when comparing his career with Federer's at this point. Slam distribution is not something that should be held AGAINST him; in fact, such kind of domination on one surface only makes him even greater. 100-2 at one slam will...

    Which beatdown was Greater?

    Well, scoreline obviously looks worse at RG since it's harder to hold serve on clay.

    Why isn't Djokovic's forehand GOAT?

    Djokovic hit bigger forehands in 2007-08. It's not a straight arm forehand.

    Fed's record in 5 setters with Djokovic and Nadal

    USO'2007 Final was such a close match. One of peak Fed's average performances in a slam final; Novak should have pushed him to 4 at the very least. I don't think Federer has ever "owned" Djokovic in a HC slam (expect maybe 2009 USO but don't think even that was a "beatdown").

    Crispiness.... Federer/Nadal Miami 05

    Agreed. Federer has lower work rates so lack of stamina usually doesn't cost him but you can bet that if he has a long encounter, he's going to come out a bit flat during the next match (Djokovic as well). Yeah, for all the talk of Federer being a complete player or all surface champion, being...

    Crispiness.... Federer/Nadal Miami 05

    Even as a Fed fan, I can acknowledge that tennis would be boring without Nadal. Federer would have probably won 3 slams per year (on all surfaces) from 2005-2009 including two Calendar Slams in 2006 and 2007. Those losses sucked at the time but Nadal definitely added balance, uncertainty and...
