Djokovic is now same age as Nadal

uncooling

Semi-Pro
He just turned 26 and Nadal is still 26 until June.

So they're the same age for a few weeks and there's been people who think Djokovic will have more GS than Federer.

There are also people who think Djokovic will play another 8 years and Nadal will retire in 3 years.

How many titles Nadal has won when he was 25? how many GS?

What about Roger?

Now that's called a class difference!

I'm sure everyone who overlooks the fact that Roger's 5-6 years older, have yet to hit 30 themselves. There IS a massive difference to mid-20's.

Age isn't the lone problem. Touring years and peak years are too. Nadal peaked very young, stormed in the Tour very quickly. While Djokovic, despite 2008's AO, wasn't that strong enough yet. Now Nadal plays less good (which is more than enough it seems) while Djokovic seems to enter his peak.

"Djokovic is now same age as Nadal".

Djokovic is ageing faster than everybody else. In a few years time he'll be older than Fed!

lol, come on now, we've been hearing that since 2011, how long does it take to enter his peak?
i say he's at his peak right now.

seriously, Djokovic already passed his peak which was 2011. Look at his performance in the last 5 tournaments.

He's also not young anymore, same age as Nadal, so there's no reason why we can expect him to have a better career than Nadal/Federer

Yes. And they have also a gluten-rich diet, which is a testament to their intestinal fortitude. :)

Talking about a gluten-rich diet, I think Nadal gave Fed recently a nice breadstick which he dutifully ate without complaining too much.

That's hilarious. LOL. It is not a real book, correct? If it is, he's crazy to do that. Imagine if it falls on Nadal's hands. :)

It's real as far as I know. He's got to be kidding me with this pathetic book. I hope it bombs and winds up in the half off bins at the Dollar Store. Lol.

Sampras-Federer-Nadal is an anomaly.

No way Djokovic will get more than 10 slams, if that.

After Djokovic-Nadal, who's there? No one seems to be rising to the ranks of winning slams.

When Djokovic/Nadal retire in about 5-7 years, tennis will be dead.

Yes, I am sure Nadal's book "How to PED yourself to victory in 7 month." will be much more successful.
