    has Djokovic reached a higher level on Clay compared to Grass?

    Djokovic's best at Wimbledon is a little better than his best at RG, but when you throw BO3 into the mix it becomes a tough comparison.

    2021 ATP Finals Torino SF: [1] Novak Djokovic vs [3] Alexander Zverev

    Much higher. Djokovic's only route to victory last year was an implosion from Thiem's end, as soon as Domi raised his level in the final set tiebreak it was only going one way. Djokovic has had to produce real moments of quality of his own own to stay in this one.

    I wanna see fired up Novak vs peak clutch servebot Zverev in a slam next year.

    2021 ATP Finals Torino SF: [1] Novak Djokovic vs [3] Alexander Zverev

    Djokovic is clearly in better form at this point in the season than he has been in both of the last two years imo, but it might not matter if Zverev is serving and holding his nerve like this.

    2021 ATP Finals RR: Djokovic vs Norrie

    Well you can't lose the match in straights to a guy like Norrie without being accused of tanking and failing to give the paying public value for money and you don't want to go three being that this is a dead rubber and the last group match before the semis begin, so the only sensible thing to do...

    2021 ATP Finals Torino RR: [4] Stefanos Tsitsipas vs [5] Andrey Rublev

    Rublev serving out of a tree atm. 19/20 first serves made with an average speed of over 200 km/h.

    Federer AO 2006 vs Djokovic AO 2021?

    Well, the point is that being considered the GOAT simply entails that you’re historically regarded as being the best at hitting a fuzzy yellow ball over a net into a rectangular region of relatively arbitrary dimensions. Not sure how Djokovic looking clunky in messiah-like imagery and...

    Federer AO 2006 vs Djokovic AO 2021?

    They all look dumb in fanaticized imagery of the sort you're referencing. They're freaking tennis players at the end of the day lol.

    Federer vs Agassi. Higher peak level at the USO?

    Apparently barely 30 year old 2011 Federer, who is a GOAT contender and inarguably posted a near-peak level performance on the most physical surface in tennis at slam level and had contemporaries who held every major tournament in the sport simultaneously at the same age give or take six months...

    Highest quality match at AO since 2000?

    Maybe not, but to say it saddens you to see it in contention for the best AO match considering both guys were near peak level and its the highest level slam encounter contested between arguably the two greatest players of all time is a bit extreme imo.

    Highest quality match at AO since 2000?

    Its becoming absurdly underrated on these boards.

    Highest quality match at AO since 2000?

    Its probably not the most entertaining contest of the bunch, but I understood highest quality to mean best aggregate level produced in a given match. It might not be the most aesthetic pick due to the 2012 surface being amongst the slowest in recent memory and the out of this world lateral...

    Djokovic being 35 is the difference.

    Unreal match so far tbh. Hope they keep it up.

    2021 Paris Open F: Djokovic vs Medvedev

    Was a good match but Novak was more willing to grind with Medvedev back then which made for less high level offensive tennis than we've seen at this match. Feel like Medvedev is playing at a higher level here and these conditions are more suited to his game.

    2021 Paris Open F: Djokovic vs Medvedev

    This stands to be the highest aggregate level match between the two by a clear margin if they can both sustain this level. Hopefully Novak can close this set out and we head to a decider.

    2021 Paris Open F: Djokovic vs Medvedev

    Not for Djokovic obviously. Medvedev's performance in that final is massively overrated though.

    2021 Paris Open F: Djokovic vs Medvedev

    I honestly feel like both players are performing at a higher level today than they were in the USO final.

    2021 Paris Open F: Djokovic vs Medvedev

    Not too upset. The prospect of Novak Djokovic winning a tennis match repulses her to such an extent that she's incapable of sitting through his tennis matches due to excessive nerves. Hasn't watched a Djokovic match in years for that very reason apparently, its far too stressful for her/him...

    2021 Paris Open SF: Djokovic vs Hurkacz

    Pray I don't have the misfortune of stumbling upon somebody as psychotic as you in the real world. Please get help, your behaviour on these boards is genuinely scary.

    The day the beast was REALLY let loose......

    Great match, arguably the closest we've come to seeing a true peak vs peak encounter between the two in my opinion, certainly on HC.

    Hewitt vs Federer Highlights | ATP Finals 2002 Semi-Final | TennisTV Highlights

    We're seriously factoring early round grand slam matches into peak for peak debates now? I remember that match well. Djokovic had a two set lead and was 3-0 up in the third in the match you're referencing. A sharper Djokovic would have closed that one out in an extremely comfortable three sets...

    Why is there a 17 Slam difference between Djokovic and Murray?

    Some posters would argue that Djokovic was peak while Murray was barely prime in that series of matches though (not that I would necessarily agree with that assessment). I was trying to break down the underlying causes and specifics behind the discrepancy in achievements by analysing their...

    Why is there a 17 Slam difference between Djokovic and Murray?

    I always found the difference in ability (particularly offensively) between the two to be most obvious and pronounced when comparing their respective successes against Nadal, which is a match-up in which both men are forced to exploit their full shot-making repertoire in an attempt to hit...

    Medvedev final slam count?

    If he gets more than around 3 or 4 then upon reflection you'd have to say that this era really is very weak in my view. Doubt that will happen though.
