Prediction : If Djokovic wins the USO 2021 final, it'll be his last slam win

I mean if he does as what's expected, there is nothing more left for him to achieve and his motivation might fall off a cliff post the final. We know what happened post RG 2016 and this is much more significant. A lot of times this year he has simply willed himself over the line and even a 5% drop on that will be difficult to overcome.
However things are a bit murkier if he loses though. Obviously he would be motivated to get to 21st but the next gen would gain a lot of confidence by his defeat, think Wimbledon would then be his most realistic chance of adding the 21st.

If Djokovic wins today, he might even retire there itself and I won't fault him for that. Never again will he be this perfect. He has locked down himself emotionally after RG semis and it's very very very hard thing to do.

Also if he wins what's the motivation for Fed and Rafa left...even if Federer miraculously wins another slam, he won't be GOAT over Djokovic while Rafa needs to win multiple slams but even then CYGS won't be toppled
