    None of them reached a Slam final, nor did they reach 6 consecutive finals, so your analogy makes no sense.

    Thiem 2020 similar to Rafa 2008?

    Thiem was not tired before the RG 2019 final. That is a reasoning some Federer fans/Nadal detractors put in their mind to have hope and convince themselves that Thiem will defeat Nadal next year at RG. Also to decrease value to Nadal's victory. Fact is, Nadal dominates Thiem at RG. Nadal...

    Even 40 years old Nadal would still defeat any version of Sampras on clay.

    Where will Murray be ranked by the end of 2020?

    Not so much compared with Medvedev. I mean in his current form. Career-wise Murray is a legend and Medvedev cannot be compared to him.

    Rank these 3 versions of Djokovic.

    Completely false. Djokovic defeated Federer in 3 at the AO 2008 and the AO 2011, while he defeated Nadal in 3 at RG once and at the AO once. In other words, Novak has defeated Federer and Nadal, respectively, twice in Slams in 3 sets. Federer may be a better server but Nadal is a better...

    Djokovic is...

    Tennis did not start in 2014. Nadal leads the H2H over Djokovic in Slams 9-6 (including 2-1 at the US Open). What kind of "nemesis" has a losing H2H in Slams against his biggest rival?

    Rank these 3 versions of Djokovic.

    His performance in the AO 2019 final was so scarily good that I thought he would win the 4 Slams in 2019. Now with perspective I understand that Djokovic is a different beast in the AO than in other Slams.

    what people thought federer on right after 07 AO ?

    In terms of overall success accross all surfaces his best period was 2004 till 2009.in 2009 he won his only RG title! Crucial year for his legacy on clay. After RG he won his 6th Wimbledon title in 7 years and almost won his 6th US Open in a row if not for an extremelly talented youngster with a...

    More Clutch? Federer vs. Wawrinka

    Generally speaking, Wawrinka's one handed backhand is more offensive than Federer's one. Wawrinka typically executes powerful flat shots, while Federer employs defensive slices a lot.

    2017 AO - 2018 IW

    He also lost in 3 sets when he was young in 2008, so it's not like Federer losing in 3 to Nadal at RG is an indication of weak form. I mean, you can argue Federer is not in his prime for being 38 years old nowadys, but not for losing in 3 to Nadal at RG.

    Djokovic-Nadal in 4 straight Slam finals

    The thread is about AO 2011 to RG 2012. In that period Djokovic did not own Nadal on clay. And in AO 2011 to AO 2012 he did not own Federer on clay either.

    Djokovic-Nadal in 4 straight Slam finals

    Haha you are a Nadal hater calling himself a Nadal fan. I am sorry but Nadal won in 4 sets the RG 2012 final, Djokovic only won 1 set. Nadal was not close to lose the final. That is like saying that Djokovic "almost lost" the Wimbledon 2011 final because Nadal won 1 set.

    Your analysis is incompatible with truth. Djokovic only won 1 set. The match did not even reach 5 sets, and you are saying Nadal almost lost. What will be next?

    Nadal can still easily surpass/match Federer's Slam count

    I agree that that version of Cilic was impressive, but I would not rank that as "tougher" than Medvedev, only because he defeated an injured Nadal. Let us not forget that Nadal got injured in the leg in the final part of the fourth set and had to withdrawn in his match against Cilic in the AO...

    Djokovic-Nadal in 4 straight Slam finals

    But Nadal destroyed Djokovic 6-1, 6-3 in Montecarlo 2012 and convincingly defeated him in the RG 2012 final in 4 sets. So not "domination" on clay in the 2011-2012 period.

    Djokovic-Nadal in 4 straight Slam finals

    To be fair, 2011 is not when tennis started. Nadal is 2-2 against Djokovic on grass and leads the H2H over Djokovic at the US Open. Anyhow, Djokovic leading the H2H over Nadal on hard courts is to be expected, as Djokovic is basically the hard court co-GOAT with Federer.

    You need new glasses. Nadal did not "narrowly" escape. He played like an emperor in the RG 2012 final. Djokovic had no chance. Nadal combined the incredible speed of his youth with an aggresive shot-making. 2012 Nadal is one of the best performances he has ever had in a RG final. He was...

    Djokovic-Nadal in 4 straight Slam finals

    Nadal leads the H2H over Djokovic in 9-6 Slams (including 2-1 at the US Open). So Djokovic did not "own" Nadal during his career. But since you are just trolling, I will do the same. Nadal owned Djokovic in Slams. Kyrgios owned Djokovic. Tsitsipas owned Djokovic. Medvedev is starting to own...

    To Federer Fans , you guys Thank you for novak Djokovic?

    Good analysis. His match against Federer in the WB 2019 SF showed (I believe) that his old defensive tactic was more effective against him on grass. Problem is, Rafa has lost much of that diabolic speed, and so he has no option than to evolve and adopt a more aggresive style. To be honest, the...

    To Federer Fans , you guys Thank you for novak Djokovic?

    On a regular basis, he is indeed more aggresive. But there are exceptions. In the Wimbledon 2018 SF Nadal was more offensive than Djokovic. But that was an exception rather than the norm.
