Whatever he does now is making a herculean task even harder for Alcaraz (or whichever superdominant player may come up in the future). Imagine Nadal and Fed hadn't existed. Nole would be sitting on 35 slams easy.

I think you are being a little conservative. But taking into account Alcaraz will only be improving and (maybe) Sinner and Rune might also be threats you could be right. Then again, it's Novak Freaking Djokovic we are talking about here.
Didn't Alcaraz just beat Djokovic at Wimbledon? It's not like Djokovic is better at the USO than at Wimbledon. Alcaraz's run last year at the USO was not easy though, so he might have been depleted in a final.

You look 20 years younger in this pitcher. Did you Photoshop it, or did you cut back on gulab jamuns for the photoshoot?
Also, it looks like that belt isn't doing anything, sawry to tell you. Are you using it for ornamental raisins?
Regardless of how competition might affect the assessment, whether Djokovic has declined enough to be a factor, etc, perform the eye test. Compare how Alcaraz plays on Wimbledon and how Nadal played. Alcaraz is the superior grass player by all accounts. Nadal played on grass in 2006 largely how...
Alcaraz, and it's no contest. Nadal was a great player in general in 2006, but his grass game was very underdeveloped. Alcaraz, with just two tournaments under his belt, cleaned the grass season, beating the strong favorite (and multi-Wimbledon champion) Djokovic. There is no comparison...
I like it how he sets up his protege to hit a winner off his blazing serve, and then he just stares at the ball as if he couldn't easily have gotten to it and hit a BH down the line winner. Such a generous and inspirational teacher. Wow.
