    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    I find it's a joke they don't have hawk-eye on clay.

    Lol, third set is normal. It's on serve basically. Nadal is not choking, he just played out of his mind and is more mortal in the 3rd.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    Well, let's put it this way. If Nole beats Nadal in the FO final from 0-2 in sets, he's the goat in my book.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    Djokovic's match so far is more against 2008 Federer than Nadal, lol.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    I think Djokovic knew he had slim chances here and he went for broke. The player knows his level and knows his current physical capabilities. Nadal moves well, and is more willing to go to distance, once he smells the opponent is no willing to dig that deep on clay, he eats him up.

    Nadal is only the best player on brown clay. Federer owns blue clay. ;)

    Schwartzman is 2nd best clay player in the world.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    Federer is dancing, Nadal is boxing, and Djokovic is gymnastics.

    4 3 3, instead of 4 3 2. Indoor clay is still 95% clay and 5% indoor.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    Got to be kidding. Can't believe that's true... Would make sense if Nadal would be 37 and Djokovic would be 32... but they're basically the same age...

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    I think if Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic would be exactly part of the same generation, each would own the other 2 on grass, clay, and hard court, depending on their favorite playing conditions. Nadal would be the most dominant on his surface, the other two would be more competitive on their 2nd...

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    It makes the GOAT discussion futile though. The GOAT has been replaced by masters of surfaces for me. That is much more fair and easier to call. We all know which one owns which surface.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    It's the same as 2008 final for me. I have a feeling Djokovic feels the same as Federer right now, and pretty much the same as Roddick in the 2007 AO (greatest press conference of all time).

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    Crazy to think that if Federer and Nadal go in a restaurant in Madrid after the pandemic and get a table, on that table there will be 40 slams.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    Funny enough, that 6-1 set win by Federer in 2006 is more impressive than ever, lol.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    He did fine to keep it 1-1 in terms of slams with Nadal and close down on Federer.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    Yea, but most of the tour until lockdown was on his favorite conditions of play.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    It's like every shot in Nadal's arsenal has been calibrated with clay in mind.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    Unbelievable match from Nadal. I expected a 4 set win, but this is 2008 final level beatdown.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    I think Thiem would've done the best at this year's RG. And by that I mean 1-4 loss.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    Djokovic can be pissed that the Wimbledon was the only one that got totally cancelled this year.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    That's like his trademark. High spin and high bounce off the court.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    I don't think this has anything to do with the mentality part of it. It's just one player in his backyard schooling the guest and showing him around.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    Well, Djokovic is playing better than in the 1st set at least... :)

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    I think it's pretty clear we'll never see a player so dominant on one surface as Nadal in our lifetime.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    Not many 30+ year olders like Nadal. Just think you can hold your level on RG for more time because of how slow the court is. Older players are slower, so if the court is very slow, this is in their advantage. Just using logic here.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    Don't think anyone believed Nadal is not clear favorite for this. He won this 12 times and Djokovic won it 1 time.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    RG is more forgiving for older players. Court is the slowest so you have more time to get to shots. The faster the court is, the more speed you need to have to get to balls.

    Roland Garros 2020 Final: Novak Djokovic [1] vs Rafael Nadal [2]

    This shows it's over more than anything. Djokovic has to hit perfectly to make a point.
