And who is his opponent? Let's see what you will say when Djokovic destroys him worse than in 2015. Oh, you will celebrate it, just like last year.
You couldn't get a more opposite version of today's Nadal than 2015 :-D that version had no power and no confidence, while today's version is peak power and peak confidence :happydevil:

Based on the comments he is now about to get broken. He can't play a BO5 match anymore without his level falling down. Will not be surprised if he ends up losing this.

Hitman is hyping the most lol, he refuses to accept that Nadal's movement and declined way too much compared to Djokovic. His logic is Djokovic is 35 and Rafa 36 so their movement must be similar.
Now now, that is not what I said. I said, you cannot use the excuse the guy is 36, when the other guy himself is 35, and has significant mileage also. Djokovic has won over 1000 matches, he is no spring chicken or someone who is his peak/prime years.

You can say that Djokovic has done well to maintain his health and conditioning in comparison to Nadal, speak about the foot etc...but the whole 36 and he is old, doesn't work when the other guy is less than year younger and in his mid 30s also.

Yeah it’s crazy how novak fans bring nadal’s age when novak is already past his prime as well lol. The thing novak has over nadal is the ability to win cheap points lol.

You can use that excuse to explain a loss to Alcaraz should it happen here, but not Djokovic. It is absurd to use the age card when the other guy is less than a year younger and has massive amount of mileage also.

Talking about the fact that Nadal has a chronic foot issue and impairs his game is one thing and fair enough, but lets stop all the he is 36 years old stuff, when we talk about a potential match with a 35 year old.

WTH with that volley on the run? Too many brain farts from Rafa this set already. You don't wanna hurt your foot with that extra tennis.

Anyone watching this match and not just the score online? Nadal cruising 6-3,6-1 then goes down a break in the 3rd.

It's still pretty sad that the only one with a realistic shot of beating 36 year old Rafa is 35 year old Novak. On a surface that's supposed to be a young man's surface.

Yeah, both have same movement. It's like saying 2006-2007 Novak was also close to Rafa's level because they were of similar age. Keep lying to yourself if you think Novak's movement has declined anywhere close to Nadal.
According to hitman's logic 2005-2007 Djokodal should have been on same level , game wise because they were of similar age.

Are you not reading what I am saying? I am not talking about movement, I am saying you can talk about Nadal's chronic foot issues, and how Djokovic has maintained himself better. I am saying, using the - oh he is 36 years old, doesn't work when the other guy is 35.
