    Fans need more solid arguments towards Djokovic’s claim to GOAT

    Djoker looked like the greatest player ever on clay today?

    Fans need more solid arguments towards Djokovic’s claim to GOAT

    Let him do it first then. If you're certain he's getting to 20 and beyond, why do you need the recognition now, before he's actually done it?

    So basically, have we all admitted to ourselves Novak is > Fedal?

    Djoker does not feel like the greatest player ever. He just doesn't. Greatest? He only beat a down and out and then aging Nadal at RG. He never beat Fed at Wimbledon when Fed was good. He has a losing record in slam finals at the USO. He's not that dominant in slams and slam finals. He...

    Who was relatively closest to eliminating Djokovic during 2021 RG?

    If Nadal gets the bagel, it's a repeat of last year.

    Fedal to win next two Majors?

    Who knows. Sport is funny. Tennis is funny. Just when you think you have everything figured out, you don't. After the 2009 AO, people thought they had it figured out. Fed proceeded to win the next two slams and YE#1. After the 2017 AO, people thought they had it figured out. Nadal won 2 of...

    The Greatest Comeback of All-Time?

    Great comeback? Tsitsipas just went away. Djoker tried to choke it away like he did in 2015, but Tsitsipas wouldn't let him.

    Why did so many fans call it so wrong?

    That's a complete mischaracterization of a back and forth match. Going from 5-0 to 3-5 is one break. No big deal. Djoker did not dominate the match. Domination is what happened last year. Djoker did what he had to to do, but was hardly dominant.

    Federer for years mostly wait for Wimbledon... Nadal mostly wait for French Open...

    Fact check: Nadal has more USOs and a winning H2H vs. Djoker in USO slam finals. Djoker, the HC GOAT, has a losing slam finals record in half the HC slams.

    Has Novak Djokovic now TRULY figured out Rafael Nadal for good (Even on clay) and have his number now? Is this the final icing on the cake?

    "Has Djoker now truly figured out Nadal on clay?" Figured Nadal out on clay at 35? If you play 60 times and get an aging Nadal at 35, you're bound to have a moment here and there. Prior to yesterday, Djoker had lost 5 in a row to Nadal on clay, including last year's RG embarrassment. That's...

    Gloating by haters puts things in perspective

    Well, Nadal does already have the slam record. Having it outright would be nice, but he is co-slam king.

    Lemme change like 4 points ;)

    It's different, sure, but Djoker hasn't exactly been dominant. He did what he needed to do today, but he still has a match to play.

    Gloating by haters puts things in perspective

    Bound to happen once every decade. I wasn't surprised.

    Lemme change like 4 points ;)

    He hasn't won this yet. Everyone thought he would roll in the 2015 final.

    Most talked about moment ( good or bad ) on Talk Tennis ?

    Over time, Fed's purse and Murray getting destroyed once more would top some of these options as well(although Murray getting destroyed once more was a seven year long series of moments).

    Most talked about moment ( good or bad ) on Talk Tennis ?

    Over the years, Fed crying at the AO was talked about more than most of the poll options.

    Which country deserves a Masters tourney?

    A grass Masters and clay WTF will be announced on the same day in 2025.

    Which country deserves a Masters tourney?

    In the coming years, it's probably more likely that China would get a second Masters than lose one.

    I finally figured it out

    Djoker was born in Yugoslavia.

    Fed's boot?

    Great win for Fed. Thankfully he took home the hardware and didn't waste it. That would have been a shame.

    Best match Nadal played on clay and lost?

    It seems like he played fairly well against Ferrer the one time he lost to him on clay. Monte Carlo.

    What will always work for Nadal in the debate...

    Surface distribution of slams: Djoker - 67% HC, 28% grass, 5% clay Nadal - 65 % clay, 25 % HC, 10 % grass It's about the same. When it comes to slam distribution, Djoker has two more slams outside the AO than Nadal has outside of RG. When you are talking 20, 21 slams and beyond, that's...

    2021 Rome masters final :- (1) Djokovic [SRB] v/s (2) Nadal [ESP]

    As he's shown in recent times, he still has another level he saves for the RG SF and F.

    ATP 500 Barcelona 2021 Final: Rafael Nadal [3] vs Stefanos Tsitsipas [5]

    Go back and watch highlights of matches where he truly killed himself and then watch this match. He wasn't killing himself. There's another gear or two he can access, but these days he saves it for the RG SF and F. The 2009 Madrid match with Djoker you seemed to be referencing was right...

    Belgrade Grand Slam

    The competition is getting tough in Belgrade. Now I know why Djoker invited Fed for 2022. He needs another pigeon in the draw.

    Nadal out, Novak barely scrapes through. What's happening!

    If you're going to do this, you can't put Nadal in the title. Nagal. No false advertising. People scan it quickly and see Nadal. That's the whole point of this tired joke.

    Who wins more Clay Slams with wooden racquets ?

    Wooden racquets, Chuck Taylors and they must drive to the court in a Model T.
