    There is only one guy that genuinely can trouble Novak on HC and he has reduced himself to a mental mess

    Yes. Novak will win the 2 HC slams. Of course at Wimbledon, there is ZERO competition. So he wins that too. So in 2023 - he already wins 3 slams. What if Nadal falters at F.O 2023 --- are we looking at CYGS for Novak in 2023? A 36 yr old doing a CYGS would make him GOAT not just of tennis, but...

    Ivansevic says Djokovic is going to be even better and that age is limitless!

    There is nothing left to prove man. Novak is the GOAT. Just simply the best tennis player. He wins on all surfaces. In all kinds of conditions. Beats all players whether it's the newest youngsters or Fedal. With time he has adapted his game and shown more versatility that no other player has...

    Ivansevic says Djokovic is going to be even better and that age is limitless!

    No man. I've been consistent since 2009. Ivanisevic wasn't Novak's coach at that time.

    2022 ATP Finals RR: Daniil Medvedev vs. Novak Djokovic

    I think Novak is serving better than ever. His tactical acumen is also better than ever. He seems to play with a lot more variety and he generally morphs his game based on the opponents weakness. Sure - his backhand is NOT peak, but he doesn't need it to be. He is arguably more effective now...

    2022 ATP Finals RR: Daniil Medvedev vs. Novak Djokovic

    I don't know man. No one knows. What I'm sure of is that Novak will be in the mix for all slams for the next 3 years. That's 12 slams. Even if he wins 30-40% of the slams - it's very exciting numbers. ( That's 26-28 slams). At this point, with Nadal declined, no one in Next Gen looks to have...

    2022 ATP Finals RR: Daniil Medvedev vs. Novak Djokovic

    Novak is unbelievable. At 36, he plays like someone at the peak of his powers.

    2022 ATP Finals RR: [1] Rafael Nadal vs Felix Auger-Aliassime [5]

    I said this a month ago. See my posts. Even in his prime, Nadal was bad here. Obviously to play at 36 with injury made no sense.

    As I said, it was stupid for Nadal to play this tournament,

    2022 Nitto ATP Finals' 1st Round Robin - (1) Rafael Nadal [SPN] vs (8) Taylor Fritz [USA]

    Told you that Nadal shouldn't have played Paris and WTF. You always play to your strengths. Not to your weakness. Even in his prime, Nadal wasn't able to do much in this part of the season. All this will do is further destroy his confidence. It might cost him a slam.

    2022 Nitto ATP Finals' 1st Round Robin - (1) Rafael Nadal [SPN] vs (8) Taylor Fritz [USA]

    He is playing like a 36 year old going on to be 37. I'm not sure if he will even win a match this tournament. Made no sense for him to participate. He should have saved himself for the slams.

    2022 Nitto ATP Finals' 1st Round Robin - (1) Rafael Nadal [SPN] vs (8) Taylor Fritz [USA]

    Nadal didn't play well bro. Tons of UFEs from both wings. Not moving fast as well. Fritz is out hitting Nadal on both wings right now. Not much for Nadal on this surface.

    Nadal - Fight for what I came here for

    Regardless of what Nadal says this is statistically his weakest surface and one of his poorest tournaments. Matches here do nothing for Nadal's legacy. The only real question is whether he will win another slam. No one in Tennis history cares about anything outside of slams.
  13. TennisFan3

    Those thinking Djokovic is going to dominate for 4-5 years more are mistaken.

    You said the same thing about Nadal and about Novak 2-3 years before, And yet Nadal and Novak have won slams in their 30s and are still the best 2 players on tour. Fact is - Next Gen just isn't good. Trust me if Fed had no Novak/Nadal and had these jokers, he would have won 5-8 more slams.

    Sampras is greater on grass than nadal is on clay. Opposition proves it.

    When I wrote that post, I thought 12 was insane and ridiculous. 14 -defies comprehension. To have as many slams at one tournament on the most punishing surface. Surely one of the GREATEST records in ALL of sports, not just Tennis.

    Which big 3 player "overachieved" the most given their abilities?

    It's pretty obvious: Federer. He was lucky to get all those slams without ATGs until Nadal/Djokovic came about. Imagine Fed/Nadal/Novak of the same age. Fed wouldn't even be in the big 3, there would be only a big 2.

    The real reason Rune won today

    Not sure about Alcaraz, other than the UsOpen he chokes left and right. Doesn't understand how to control the aggression. Could be a one slam wonder.

    Paris Masters Final: Novak Djokovic vs. Holger Vitus Nødskov Rune

    I'm not even sure if Novak has anything left to prove. It's pretty clear that when he is allowed to play, he's the best player even at 35. And he has also surpassed Federer and Nadal Both. I would say easily. Now there is Margret Court's total slam tally left - but that's about it. How long...

    Paris Masters Final: Novak Djokovic vs. Holger Vitus Nødskov Rune

    Novak just wills himself to make ZERO errors. Just every ball hit deep, with dead accuracy. He squeezes you until you can't breathe. The mentally STRONGEST player in the history of tennis. Perhaps the most mentally strong player across all sports. I would say he goes over Jordan, Ali etc..

    Paris Masters Final: Novak Djokovic vs. Holger Vitus Nødskov Rune

    Bro he looks ageless. So fast, young and light on his feet. Maybe I should move to Serbia and eat what they eat over there.

    Paris Masters Final: Novak Djokovic vs. Holger Vitus Nødskov Rune

    Yes. Probably gets more than 30 slams when all is said and done.

    Paris Masters Final: Novak Djokovic vs. Holger Vitus Nødskov Rune

    Novak Djokovic is a FREAK of nature. How does the guy play at this level at the age of 35. What's in those Serbian genes?

    [5] Stefanos Tsitsipas vs [7] Novak Djokovic - ATP Masters 1000 Paris SF

    Novak doesn't care about mickey mouse tournaments. If this were a slam , titspas doesn't even win a set.

    Paris Masters SF: Félix Auger-Aliassime vs. Holger Vitus Nødskov Rune

    Based on what exactly? FAA was awful. Rune will get thrashed by Novak.

    Paris Masters QF: Novak Djokovic vs. Lorenzo Musetti

    Even the UsOpen. No one to challenge him there too. Let's be realistic - if Novak played UsOpen - he would have smashed Ruud/Alcaraz/Sinner etc. Anyway - the only real challenge to Novak is his senior Nadal. And that too at the French Open. But is Rafa going to play 2023 French Open - and...

    Paris Masters QF: Novak Djokovic vs. Lorenzo Musetti

    When someone says that the opposite happens. My bet is Novak wins 3/4 slams next year. Next gens are hollow and Nadal looks getting close to the end.

    Paris Masters QF: Novak Djokovic vs. Lorenzo Musetti

    How does Djokovic move so fast and look so light and energetic at 35? The guy hasn't aged at all. I've NEVER seen a 35 yr old look so young and play so well.

    Paris Masters QF: Novak Djokovic vs. Lorenzo Musetti

    This is unbelievable from Novak. He IS the best player in the world by far. If he's allowed to play slams next year, I don't see anyone stopping him anywhere. If he plays his best, no one is good enough to beat him.

    Rolex Paris Masters 1000: Oct 2022

    Novak is the best player in the world right now. He is playing EVEN BETTER than he did in the earlier part of the year. He looks FITTER and faster and LIGHTER as well. Won't be surprised if he wins 3/4 slams next year, and his 2023 is as good/better than 2021. World #1 coming up soon.

    2022 Rolex Paris Masters R32: R. Nadal [2] vs. T.Paul

    How does getting a breadstick and losing in the FIRST match of a tournament, help him get into the groove? CONFIDENCE - is the most critical thing for these top players. And by playing these events, Nadal is certainly NOT gaining any.

    2022 Rolex Paris Masters R32: R. Nadal [2] vs. T.Paul

    And yet Nadal HAS won slams after long breaks. Such as AO and F.O. Evidence suggest that Nadal is the best when he comes after a long break, well rested and is NOT injured. Playing hardcourt tournaments, especially indoors, which don't suit his style further exacerbates his injuries. If you...
