Bold prediction: Nadal will not beat Djokovic ever again, even on clay!

Hard, grass or even clay, it wouldn't matter anymore.

Nadal has already got his last victory over Djokovic at RG 2022. Djokovic struggled a lot in that match due to his lack of match play but this won't be an issue in the coming years.

The future of tennis looks bright and I can't wait to see them play each other again!

Rafa had little match play going into RG himself due to injury. Novak, otoh, had just won Rome and made the final in Belgrade. Lol. Want to try again with your sorry attempt at trolling?

Wouldn't surprise me. Djokovic defeated him at French last year and almost took him to fifth this time. Djokovic is very close level wise to Clay dal. OTOH Nadal ain't even close to Hard-Courtovic - so it could happen..

I wouldn’t be surprised at this. People like Sinner, Alcaraz and FAA can also take out Nadal on Phillipe Chatrier too. Nadal is deteriorating with each passing tournament
 
I love how when RAFA misses time on tour with injuries and comes back the narrative is “of course he’s playing well look at how much rest he got.”

But when Joker missed a few months because of his boneheaded decisions the goalposts get moved to “of course he lost he was off tour for so long.” :rolleyes:

And this is with Joker playing a longer CC season than RAFA did this year. Of course that goes against the myth that he’s always healthy during the CC season.

Djok fans need to come up with myths to justify why Nadal has more slams than him...
 
Djoker with proper preparations and appropriate match fitness is favourite against the clay court specialist even on his home turf in Paris. HC and Wimbledon are out of question for Nadal for years now, anyway.

Lack of match play?

He had won Rome just a few days before.

They want to have their cake and eat it too.

Knowing how accurate TTW predictions are, especially when they write off Nadal or Djokovic, I’m tempted to predict a Nadal win over his main rival in Bercy or the WTF. Even if that doesn’t happen, there is zero chance of Nadal not beating Djokovic again especially if he keeps playing as aggressively as he did this year. How can you at least not bet on Nadal winning again on clay?

I'm mostly certain he will beat him again on clay. They will probably have a few more meetings in Rome or Madrid in the next 2 years, Nadal will win some of them.

Very unlikely he beats him again on grass or HC on the other hand. Winning a set would be a good start for him. At this point I'm not even sure they'll ever have an off clay court match again. How much you want to bet they won't be in the same group in WTF Turin?
 
I love how Djokobots always use Nadal to stay relevant LOL. The saddest bunch of fans
Don't they, though? They have to use a popular, beloved player like Rafa in order to draw attention to their guy since most people outside of Serbia don't even know who he is. Lol. Sorry bunch of folks.

Since 2010 there have only been 2 instances in which they could have been in the same group, once it happened and once it didn't.

I wonder if Nadal fans would speak with so much arrogance if we switched the surfaces to hard/grass. Couple more months and it's gonna be a full decade, baby.

Nadal’s career has been predicted to be “over” since 2009.

I’ll believe it when I see it.

This thread wasn't created by a Nadal fan, so why are you calling us arrogant? We aren't the ones making ridiculous proclamations like the one in the thread title. I think you may be confused.
Thread was also not made by a Djokovic fan, but a Medvedev fan who just doesn't like Nadal very much.

Hmm, I somehow doubt that very much. They are the least a raging fed fan who roots for djokovic because he beats Rafa. Those types are all too familiar on this forum.
Yeah, of course you don't. I guess all who dislike Djokovic are raging Rafaholics then, since that is the way we are judging posters here.

“Look how fanatical that other fan base is” is perhaps the most ironic, paradoxical, and self-incriminating TTW thought there is.

Followed closely by - “ (insert name of big 3 here) will never (insert accomplishment here) ever again.”
