Djokovic playing style

All top pros if they can serve really well and expected certain responses from their opponent they will always go for the same thing.

I would say Djokovic play style is born from his serve, and serve return. His serve doesn't always produce short ball unfortunately, esp on clay. Since his background is clay, his strategy is about dominating shots that you can't hit a short ball and get away with it, if you want to win you need to counter with good timing and spin otherwise you will be overwhelmed.

What makes Djokovic stands out and win a lot more majors and slams I believe is due to his hard training in stamina and flexibility so he can stay at higher standard for longer period of time than any other pros currently. He can hit a 90 mph forehand while receiving another 100+ mph serves, he can do it while running at top speed chasing after it, not a lot of pros can do this.

All pros if presented the opportunities, will always do the same thing (serve and volley, or do net game, etc), the differences are really due to their serves and how people respond to their serves and what happens after.

I was surprised to learn that comparing with Fed and Nadal, Djokovic has made the most prize money. That means he has won more matches. To boost, he's much younger than Fed, who's considered the goat. However, interestingly, Djokovic has the least majors out of the 3.

It's a bit convoluted. Djokovic has won more masters then Fed, Nadal, where these guys divide up and conquer. They beat up misc. guys to win masters 1000s, and Djokovic does it best. But at the same time, Djokovic has won less majors because he's gotten beaten by misc. guys in early rounds.

You’re forgetting that prize money has been increasing since the time Federer and Nadal started winning stuff
 
One stroke that Novak plays very well is the "deep angle". Novak generally hits his groundies a lot deeper than many atp players and he is very good at hitting a deep angle that lands like 8 feet behind the service line but still has some angle out of the court.

Kinda like in this graphic were the yellow line is a traditional deep CC, the blue one is the short angle and the red one is that deep angle.
