What I have heard from Rafa fans that his failure in Madrid is because of condition so if you have problem then talk to your own VB army .

And what I have heard in all these years that us open was on slow surface and Djokovic is slow hardcourt champion , so decide whether us open was not on slow surface or djokovic don't like slow surface then we can make any correlation

You can't be the hard GOAT and be 3rd best in your own era in the biggest hardcourt tournament :-D

He is a bit one dimensional but a product of the modern era. Very similar to Medvedev. Strong on hard. Eminently beatable off hard.

Similar to Medvedev? :laughing: Slow down on that trolling. Yea similar to the guy who can barely win matches on clay (never won one at RG) and never been to a 4th round at Wimbledon. Sounds about right.
Live in the present. Djokovic not done much off hard last 18 months bar Rome last year.

He's won Wimbledon five times in the last 10 years, certainly less beatable than anyone on grass during that period, including Federer.

Hard to do anything on a surface (grass) that hasn't been played in almost 2 years and in the two big clay tournaments played in 2020, he won one and made the final of the other. Medvedev is not even close to Djokovic in that timeframe off hardcourt. Such a troll post.

It seems that many people are trolling these days, hard for me to catch it at the start to be honest.
Only way to get any worth out of going through another day perhaps. Trying to have actual decent debates and conversations are not why some join here I'm afraid.

Fed has won more matches on grass over the past decade. There is more grass tourneys than WC.
Yeah, I was referring to Wimbledon only as it is the only big tournament on grass and wins there are imo the best indicator of someone's form on the surface.

9 finals in AO, 8 in USO (tied for most in open era).

His record looks pretty balanced I'd say. It's the final game where he hasn't performed that's been the problem, not the type of HC.

I understand, but as a grass guy, I have to disagree. This is the reason they need a masters on grass, so it gets more respect.

Federer hasn't really played any top players outside of Wimbledon and the Olympics over the past decade though. Against the top 10 in the last 10 years, Federer is 10-7 and Djokovic is 11-5.

I am a grass guy, too, and I don't think it is disrespectful to say that players show their best level at Wimbledon. Even Pete didn't bother to perform as good as he can at Queen's.
And yes, we need at least one masters on grass, even if it comes only after Fed's retirement.

Just because he's better only slower hard courts doesn't mean he's a specialist in it. He's just not quite as good during the USO series as the super slow AO-IW-Mia triple. His amazing record indoors definitely proves he's not a slow hard specialist.

It's good the two hard court slams are so different as if they were both low bouncing and a bit faster than normal then Nole's slam count would be very skewed. He'd also be the slam tally leader.

A little bit, on the other hand there are 6 more masters plus wtf played on hard which you "forgot"...

Novak won all hard court tournaments multiple times, except Cincinnati where he has many finals....

Novak won multiple titles indoor, outdoor, high altitude, low altitude, slow hard, fast hard... name it...


So, again, little skewed, but you are talking about most vertisale player in history of the game, so no one is better in that department... Me happy... ;)

Nadal has won more US Opens than the hardcourt GOAT?
Genius.
Heck, Nadal even leads their US Open H2H 2-1!
BTW, Nadal and Wilander are the only men ever to win multiple slams on Clay, Grass and Hardcourt.

No I agree, I just dont really like that narrative.

Pretty even. But with grass, ranked players dont mean too much.

This thread proves yet again that whenever someone analyzes Djokovic stats they are even less impressive than they appear on the surface. :giggle:
