Is it a mystery how Nadal has won more US Opens than Djokovic?

Third Serve

G.O.A.T.
Djokovic has won more h/c titles but that doesn’t necessarily mean he is better on hardcourt than Nadal. In Australia Rafa has been hampered more times with injury that at any other tournament so Djokovic hasn’t won it with Rafa playing at peak condition all the time, or even pulling out halfway through with injury. Rafa has also won the Rogers Cup 5 times to Djokovic’s 4 and Rafa won the Olympic Gold medal on hardcourt beating Djokovic on the way.

Injury is Rafa’s greatest opponent.

That's after Rafa had already served for the match in the 4th set.
Nole could also win AO 2012 in four sets, so your note is out.

If Novak is stronger on h/c than Rafa why has he lost to Rafa, at the USO 2 out of 3 times?
Because of the height of the bounces of the balls. I write still about it in this thread. When Nadal has available high rebounds of the balls, he is strong everywhere, therefore managed to beat Nole at the US Open. Ball rebounds are lower on AO, therefore Nadal is there much less successful than on USO.

But Rafa has dominated clay from the age of 19. What happened to Novak in the Rio Olympics?
Bad draw, at the beginning of the tournament he had an opponent in form. By the way, the same opponent beat Nadal in SF, if you remember correctly. :happydevil:

Rafa had wrist injury and only turned up to carry the flag but couldn't just do that so he played as well and ended up with the gold medal in doubles.

Well, what dosage of Vitamin D3 do you take? The standard 400IU as recommended or higher? I take 10,000IU for years. Since it became available. Before that I took 5,000IU for years. IMO 400IU isn't enough. But has to be taken with Mg, Zn, and Vit C and Omega 3 as its performance it then optimised.

P.S. Find David Sinclair from Australia on YT and read up what he has been studying. (Nothing to do with COVID19) I have been following his experiments (for years).
5000IU. I also bask in natural sunlight whenever I can.

I’ve heard of him, but haven’t examined his work. I’ll take a look.
