Didn't prevent him from being the best ever.

4 consecutive slams beating 5 times the Big4.
7 consecutive big titles beating 8 times the Big4.

I am fine with the video.. it's funny.

But yeah thread title could have been less denigrating to Djokovic

On video, how the hell he missed that Nishikori one..I mean you can't get a ball easier than that at any level.

Not with 16 Slams, when his biggest rivals have, respectively, 19 and 20.

Also, winning 4 in a row does not make you the best ever. Laver did it twice and is not generally considered the best ever (some do but not the majority). And Djokovic's 4 in a row is not that impressive if we put it in perspective. He won RG 2016 without facing Nadal, as Nadal retired injured and out of form of the tournament. Federer would have won 4 Slams in a row twice if he had not faced prime Nadal at RG 2006 and RG 2007. Djokovic cannot be considered better than Federer for the alleatory reason of not having to face Nadal at RG.

The nishikori one is shocking, even when you go into the video knowing Djokovic and expecting terrible things.
Dont know which one is worse. We can vote though :)

This is a perfectly lighthearted thread. I don't know why everyone is getting so hot under the collar about it. Djokovic's record as one of the greatest players ever speaks for itself, but no one can deny that seeing him attempt overheads is funny.
It is charming. It is like opening the thread "Nadal's signature forehand" and providing following video. You can't deny that this is funny?

Bercy 2014 - RG 2016 is the highest level of tennis ever IMO.

95% of wins in Big Tournaments, 18/24 titles won, facing opponents with an average ranking of 15.5.

I'm not offended and I think it is funny. I would respond by posting videos of Rafa's best forehands. You should respond by posting videos of Novak's best overheads.

This is the kind of response those people in this thread that got deeply hurt should have posted in response to you.
They could have just showed Novak’s real signature shot ;)

If I agree with you that Djoker's RG win is not impressive bcoz he didn't face Rafa as Rafa withdrew from injury then Rafa's AO and WIMBY titles are not impressive as he didn't face fit Djokovic . ( Djok withdrew due to injury at Wimby 2007 ) .
Also Rafa's OSO wins are not impressive as he never faced Federer at USO ( Fed is USO GOAT currently. )

Well, someone asked when the Djokodal fanbases would start warring...

You've become one of the worst posters here and that is something. Congrats to you, much love.
I would 86 about half the poasters in this thread, too. The pillars of objectivity were quick to the rescue in posts 3 and 4.

Djokosmash? ;-) Just kidding. His baseline shots technique is very clean - tough to choose one shot cause they are all very good.
