Djokovic is...

RF-18

G.O.A.T.
And still behind both players in Grand Slam titles and soon to lose number 1 ranking to Nadal.

Super clutch against Fedal in the last few Slams for sure. Even if not as convincingly overpowering them like Stan does to him.
I was talking about Djokodalovic encounter, not slam race.

Good stat, but unfortunately with his shoulder gone and age finally catching up with Fed, it's 8 out of the next 8 slams for Nadal ...

probably 12/12 ... but perhaps 10/11 ...

This stat is kinda overrated. Truth is Djokovic only reached them when the conditions really favored him. In RG 2017-2019 he avoided Nadal in RG. Also didn't reach Federer in Wimbledon 2017/AO 2018.
Djokovic was injury effected Wimbeldon 17 and AO 18. And he played in-form Nadal 6 times at RG. So your still quite the hater.

But fedal is hypothetically and scuseathetically 102-0. That is what really counts! Life is just a fantasy can you live this fantasy life!?

Who is gonna care that Roddick has a winning h2h against Djokovic? I'm sure Federer doesn't have a clean record against all players he has played against. Absolutely irrelevant.
Least negative h2h (Open Era):

Nadal 3.2%
Djokovic 4.9%
Laver 6.1%
McEnroe 7.0%
Lendl 7.2%
Murray 7.4%
Federer 7.6 %

Even MuryGOAT has less negative h2h than Roger.

No player has a clean record against all players in his professional career either.

All ATP and slam matches are RELEVANT.

Cherry picking would be if I said since AO 19 he is 2-0 against Fedal.

But this is over 5 years and 8 grand slam meetings. Huge sample and very impressive.
So you think Novak is the better player since he has dominating when they were older?
what’s your point?

I really like Nadal, but when Nadal fan talk about Novak "only reached them when conditions really favored him", I must laugh very, very hard...

He's been ducking Rafa at the FO the last 3 years. It helps him with his confidence.
Nadal only once met Djokovic in a Slam when he was out of form: 2015 RG. Every other time when he was out of form he lost to some lesser player before he reached Djokovic. Nadal on the other hand has a quite a few wins against a lesser Djokovic: 2006 RG, 2007 RG, 2007 Wimbledon, etc., yet you think they should have met 3 more times at RG, twice when he was not in top form, to further inflate an already lopsided distribution in Slam meetings even more? :laughing: Why is no one else laughing?

I'm talking about the last 5 years, not about their rivalry in general. And if we talk about all meetings (not just in slams) then Djokovic has much more wins against out of form Nadal than the other way around.

Leave alone the fact that if we mention Djokovic being out of form in RG 2007 semifinal then we have to do the same for Nadal in AO 2019 for example. Or you really believe Nadal was GOATing in that final? Djokovic in RG 2007 at least tried to give a fight, even though it was before he reached his prime on clay.

Whether it's the last 5 years or their rivalry in general, what you're talking about is one sided and downright unreasonable. Djokovic has not been at his best in quite a few of those meetings in Slams and they have already played 7 times at RG. That's already too much in comparison to 2 times at AO, 3 times at Wimbledon and 3 times at the USO, yet Djokovic avoided Nadal at RG for 3 years? So they need to play 10 times at RG and Djokovic only played Nadal when the conditions suited him? Dude get out of here with that BS. Nadal should have been meeting Djokovic more in the other Slams, period.

And I know you are not trying to compare Nadal at 2019 AO to Djokovic at 2007 RG, and putting them on the same plane. Get real.
