    USO final 2015 ... Novak at the end ... pointing to himself...

    That match, for me, was the ULTIMATE Djokovic. Sports psychologists should watch this in universities. Awe inspiring.

    AO 19 Final In Full

    Just watched the match again. Novak simply took away time from Rafa. Took important real estate, even when Rafa was on serve. Giving NO time or rhythm. No short balls where Rafa can unleash any forehand bombs. Also Rafa simply COULD NOT read Novak's serve or shot selection easily. He was...

    Agassi: If Murray played in my era, he would win 3 times more

    There is no doubt about this. I often say, that if Murray was active between 2000-2010, he would have at least 7-8 to his name.

    Novak and Boris interaction after the final

    Boris played an important role in Novak's career, and I am sure Novak knows this.

    Rafa academy going global!

    On the contrary, Djokovic own 3 restaurants in Serbia, that serve food to homeless people.

    Rafa academy going global!

    Beautiful place. But another great tennis resort has also opened in Crete, which is pretty schmick, to to say the least. https://www.lyttosbeach.gr/tennis Greece has by far the best mountain/beach combination in the world. You can be skiing on a mountain, and view blue water underneath.

    Can Novak win 1 GS title per year during next 5 years?

    If the Djoker times himself well, in other words plays where he wants to play, and not burn the candle at both ends.....yes he can win slams in the next 2-3 years.

    Uncle Toni’s speech and analysis if AO final

    Yep. And the "new serve", and "faster game", were no doubt in aggreance with Uncle Toni, no doubt. Perhaps a sign of the times. You cannot start something, you cannot finish. Rafa needs his old game back. If he can still play it, that is. I said, that these changes were not a sign of...

    Uncle Toni’s speech and analysis if AO final

    I think they parted ways amicably. Given that, I'm sure Uncle Toni still has the ear of Moya and Rafa.

    Uncle Toni’s speech and analysis if AO final

    Man, as much I love Rafa, it would be crazy if Novak overtakes his slam count. The excuses as to why Rafa is better than Novak, would be insane. It will send the tennis world into a tailspin, literally. Because we have heard some unbelievable excuses for Novak not being an ATG. WTF's don;t...

    Sometimes I get the feeling that Uncle Toni, wishes Novak was his nephew.

    Can Nadal complete double Career Slam?

    Djokovic is there to stop Nadal. That is his number one goal. Whatever slams he get's in the process are a bonus.

    Remember the Djokovic diet hate?

    As a Djokovic fan, all I have to say is we are lucky to have Vajda as his coach.

    Novak Djokovic - Fast Court specialist? )))

    Personally, even if Djokovic remains healthy, I don't see him sticking around, if his main rivals are gone. Murray, gone this year. I think Federer will also announce his retirment sometime this year. Nadal will go into a downward spiral, if he doesn't win the French this year. Djokovic will...

    Djokovic sets his sights on surpassing Federer’s slam record

    That being said. It was sad seeing Nadal's post match handshake, and interview. Never ever have I seen him so awkward. He was naked out there.

    Djokovic sets his sights on surpassing Federer’s slam record

    The question is not whether Djokovic can do it, physically. By all accounts he probably can. The question is whether he can do it mentally. Djokovic is motivated directly by the opponents he has on the other side of the net. Give him Rafa, Fed, and Andy, and he see's red. He will beat them...

    The problem with the whole 'GOAT' debate.

    The reason you cannot rely on slams as the ultimate guide to who is the greatest is that the Australian Open was seldom played by the top players during the 70's, 80's and early 90's. It was literally after the Laver arena was built, that it started becoming a world class slam, equal, if not...

    The problem with the whole 'GOAT' debate.

    There is no GOAT. There are only the best of each generation. Federer is not of the Djoko, Nadal, Murray generation. He is of the Hewitt, Safin gen. Kudos to him though for lasting and remaining highly competitive across 2 generations. Federer is arguably the BEST/GREATEST of his...

    Djokovic sets his sights on surpassing Federer’s slam record

    The one against Tsitsipas was staged imho. Even tour finals. I think he will chose wisely what he wants to win from here on out.

    McEnroe is wrong

    How his forehand that plowed through his opponents these past 2 weeks, all of a sudden became a weakness ? Rafa had the fear in his eyes today. Even post match he was rattled. Get ready for Moya to leave the team.

    McEnroe is wrong

    Funny how Patrick picked Rafa to win it before the match though. Excuses. Novak outgunned him. Simple.

    Djokovic wasn't surprised at how easy it was to beat Nadal.

    The last couple of service points where he shook his head, were so telling. He wanted out. This match will prove to be career changing for Nadal. Don't know if 8t will be for the better.

    2019 Australian Open Men’s Singles Final (1) Novak Djokovic V (2) Rafael Nadal

    Something tells me that Rafa will not be the same after this loss. Something about his demeanour post match. Don't know what it is.

    Is Novak Djokovic now greater than Nadal?

    Yes he is. And today's beatdown sealed the deal. First time I saw fear in Nadals eyes. During the match, and at the press conference. He was stunned. Had no answers whatsoever.
