It doesn't mean Nadal's level stays the same though. It's ridiculous how some here try to argue that we shouldn't count the losses to Djokovic as losses, but as potential wins. But then again, what's the surprise if some Djokovic fans hype even 2023 Tsitsipas.
So when it comes to Djokovic winning, competition doesn't matter, you can only face who is in front of you, right? But for Nadal, you can only judge his level when his opponent is at his absolute best? Nadal played lots of better sets in his career.
Sorry, I misread the comment, thought he talked about Del Potro winning double digit slams. If it's just about winning a second slam, one could obviously expect that. However, he was never a potential ATG, not buying it.
Said by the person who bashes Medvedev who actually was number 1, won a slam and has 5 wins over Djokovic. Only in your imaginary world Tsitsipas losing 10 matches in a row to Djokovic (not to mention head to heads against other top players) is more impressive. You are clearly mad because you...
"A bit of luck". It's just that this era is so weak that facing Sinner is now considered a tough draw. :rolleyes:
Nadal in RG 2005 beat prime Federer, and didn't even need 5 sets to do it. Alcaraz isn't getting anywhere close to a slam win in 2005.
