Nadal still has more US Opens than Djokovic....

Yes, Nadal is 6 years older than Djokovic, so what you said makes sense... No, wait, that is Federer.
Maybe, he is 5 years older... no!
Maybe, he is 4 years older...no!
Maybe, he is 3 years older...no!
Maybe, he is 2 years older...no!
Maybe, he is 1 year older than Djokovic... No! Nadal is not even a year older than Djokovic.
He is about 11 months and a couple of weeks older.

What a silly argument you have given.

4>3, 2>1 Bud, bottom line. Nadal ahead at the 3 historically important majors and owns both rivals in slam h2h.

Djokovic could have had 5 USOs but he allowed inferiors Murray and Stanimal to steal wins in 2012 and 2016.

Losing to Pushikori in 2014 is an unforgivable offense imo. If I had to choose the one single match that keeps me from viewing Djokovic as the GOAT, it's that 2014 loss.

How does Nadal "own" Djokovic in slams?
Barring Djokovic's 2 withdrawals when he was 18-19yo, the h2h is 8-7. (0-2, 6-2, 0-2, 2-1)
8-7 in completed matches isn't exactly "owning" lol.

Especially when more than 50% of these 8-7 were on Nadal's best slam. Djokovic has gone deep every year in RG since 2006 (only exception: 3rd round in 2009) and lost 6x against him. In comparison, Nadal has lost many times early in AO and Wimbledon. He has missed a huge number of opportunities to play Djokovic in AO/Wimbledon finals and semifinals. FI who would've won potential djokodal australian open finals in 2020 and 2021? Wimbledon 2019?

Nadal has 1 more USOpen and 1 more Canada Open but he is owned on every other HC big events.
1-9 AO
0-5 WTF
3-5 IW
0-6 Miami
1-2 Cincinnati
1-4 Shanghaï / HC Madrid
0-5 Paris

5-12 in slams, 10-31 in Masters/WTF

Yessss this is also very important :D



Lol if it takes him nearly to 2022 when the tour is dead and Rafa is 35 and declined, it really won't matter much to me. We all know outlastovic will outlast eventually. Yawn :p
Why do some fedal fans constantly like to add on years of certain things? E.g. Feds age comes to mind, always having a year or two added lol. And now we are in 2022 apparently?

If Djokovic doesn't reverse this by the end of their careers this stat will maybe be the strangest one of the Big 3 era because there is no way
