It's been 5 on the trot with 1 in between being DQ so overall it's 6 in 7. So when does we have next final at slam not involving djokovic?

Genuinely do not see him in a Major final.again. his movement is declining each month it seems. He did not hsve any very lon matches at Uso yet looked spent in the final. That is only going to get worse from here on in.
He invested alot of emotional and physical energy the last two years. Bound to hit the wall. Moya did hint at this after Rg when Nadal.took the year off. Im sure he said somethimg about the long game.

Reaching the final in every GS tournament one year and then not making a single final in the next year would be rather extraordinary. I guess he had that walkabout in 2017, after having reached 3 of 4 finals, winning 2, but arguably that started half-way through 2016, and he still made the USO final after that.

It would be extremely surprising if Djokovic didn't make another final next year. But I think he won't make all 4 again; Fed's two streaks of 10 and 8 consecutive GS finals reached are likely to stand IMO.

Mcenroe 1984 seems to me a likely repeat job. Mcenroe never got over FO 1984. Genuinely not think Djokovic eer recovers from losing Olympics and USo. Mentally will be hard

Yeah you forget with that Fall French he's gone 5 in a row and essentially 6 consecutive Finals with the DQ not counting as a loss (and let's not even begin with that draw being a joke for him to not make Final).

Kind of sad he isn't officially on 7 now with a plausible chance to at least tie Fed's 10.

Ah well, I think 22 French ends the run with a 2019 type scenario Semifinal loss to like Tsitsipas or Zverev.

A lot of people say Djokovic will never make another slam final, but I think he's got one more AO Final in him, and it may be next year or 2023.

OP - the choices are TOO RESTRICTED.

I would say after 2024 - likely in 2024 or 2025.

It's HARD to see Novak NOT making EVERY SINGLE slams final for the next 2 years.

Where is the "never" option? Djokovic will become an entity that will replace tennis in the future, the kids will say "let's play Novak Djokovic?" "Yes! I love playing Novak Djokovic!"

Typical TTW.. Novak is done after 3 Slams win and lost in USO final. How many of you "Novak is done" people actually bet your money that Novak wont play in AO22 final?

Your fate is decided by the last match played, didn't you know?

Could happen at the next AO for all we know. However I still believe he is making at least 2 finals next year. Wimbledon is basically a lock as he is by far the greatest grass court player on tour right now.

But he recovered from his abysmal Pepe period in 2017 to mid-2018, where he weighed 150 pounds and was losing to mugs everywhere.

Of course he wasn't 34 years old then. Huge difference.
For me it was the fact he burst into tears which really shows the mental stress he was under chasing Fedal all these years. It just looked like he hit the wall emotionally and im not sure he will have the same drive on the practice courts given he is 34 with a family. I am not sure he can get away with a softer training regime like Roger and Rafa have done psst few years. His training has been intense to keep him physically able to compete week in week out. Rafa and Roger sacrificed the week in week out intensity almost a decade ago.
I just sense that while for most the lsst couple of years would ahve filled almost every other player with joy Djokovic set his goals too high. He was after an unbeaten season last year. he openly said it. Then he said he could win a Cygs at the start of the year and that the Olympics was his main target snd he was confident he would get it. He wanted to end the year as the slam leader. He publicly and his team hsve said all this openly.
He achieved none of the above. So i just struggle to see how he picks himself up at 34. His own fault really as had he been a bit more humble and played down his goals then the mental baggage would be less. I feel his team around him are awful and have been for years.

It ain't gonna happen.

The guy is done.

Nowadays, the field entails just too many "young guns" who can scupper the ailing Serbian protagonist.

Seven best-of-5 matches in a fortnight? Nah, mate.

There's no way that this guy can extend his "legendary" game-style into 2022.

A lot of overreaction and lack of perspective in this thread. Wishful thinking by those that want to see him lose. I don't think he's satisfied with just tying Fedal and he'll come back in 2022 refreshed and motivated. I'm not guaranteeing he'll win any slams, but as long as he's healthy he should reach the late rounds at each slam. The key is avoiding lower body injuries. That seems to be the final nail in the coffin for most great players including Fedal

To answer the op's question: RG 22. I'm predicting some combination of Nadal, Zverev or Tsitispas in the final

Maybe RG.
I feel he makes the AO and only see Med beating him there so he will make F at worst.
Wimbledon will be a walk the young players are trash there.
USO is a high chance of not making the F
