So since everyone says a 20 year Carlos should be beating a 36 year old Djokovic I thought it be a good question to ask.

Djokovic at Wimbledon 2008 was 20 years old with 1 slam like Alcaraz and was mushed up by Safin in the 2nd round. While Djokovic was definitely faster and better mover back then it seems Djokovic now is way more complete mentally stronger and with experience I think he easily beats his 20 year old self.

Just food for thought if Djokovic does best Carlos

Safin was way deadlier against Djoker in 08 then I have seen from Carlos this tournament
While I agree with you I still feel that Carlos shouldn’t be expected to beat Djokovic here since this Djokovic would beat his younger self at Carlos age.

Sure as I said in another thread Fed at 20 lost to Ancic at Wimbledon. I’m only mentioning this as Carlos is underrated for his age

Djokovic already had a wimbkedon SF under his belt in 2008.
 
Djokovic 2023 would beat any version of Djokovic before 2011. I remember 2010 Djokovic Wimbledon SF against berdych. Where Novak did better than 08. Back then Novak’s serve and FH were weaknesses still. He also was far less complete at net or slice, etc and not as strong physically or mentality. Djoko grass game was a working progress back then. This 2023 version would beat down that version pretty bad same with 2008 too. It wouldn’t be pretty.

Alcaraz would cramp by the mere sight of Safin :whistle:

Djoko23 would frustrate his wild young self to pieces

Nadal would easily win both of them.
