Very good pointAll I really care about is seeing good, interesting tennis from here on out. if it becomes 21-21-20 because of a Wimby '21 or USO '17 type draw, then I won't be thrilled, but that seems more likely at this point.
If it stays 20-20-20 because Nadal's foot is permanently f-cked and Djokovic loses his stamina and movement and we just see them decimated by old age, I'm not exactly going to be happy about that. And honestly, unless you're just an obsessive Fed fan, I don't see why you'd want to watch that. It would be sad to see these amazing players go down to old age without one last hurrah.
What I would want to see is more matches like AO '20 Thiem vs. Nadal and Olympics Zverev vs. Djokovic where a young guy comes with a strong plan and just outplays the Big 3 guy. Less matches like Sunday and AO '21 Tsitsipas Nadal where the older guys just fall apart.
Of course, there will be rough losses incoming for Djokodal, but I do want to see them both bring some good form for a couple tournaments or so. I really am hoping for one last epic Djokovic-Nadal match at some point.
Based on Djoker's actual level of play in 2021, yes I would. He's not a lock moving forward.As a Novak fan i think my answer is clear .Fed fans answer is also clear. I am wondering about Rafa fans-would they ve gamble one last RG title or DCGS at AO risk knowing Novak is favourite at 3 of the 4 majors
It would be interesting if Nadal won RG, Djokovic won Wimbledon and 2 next gen players won the hard court slams. Both at 21 this time next year.No, I'll take my chances on Djoker failing in Melbourne and Nadal getting there first at RG.
If Nadal gets to 21 first, all the pressure is back on Djoker.
i disagree, nadals chances are nearly as good as djokovics.It would be fun to see them all end with the same amount. And I'd be happy with that.
But if we are talking strictly from a fan perspective then definitely Djokovic has the best odds to finish ahead. Unquestionably. Nadal and Federer fans would sign anywhere it finishing 20-20-20.
It's much too late for this. The Failed Gen had their chance to dethrone the 3 goats. Any victories the Failed Gen has over them now will not be because they stepped up but because the goats are aging, injured, etc... They have been that way for several years, Fed for much longer. At this point, anyone from the Failed Gen beating any of the 3 goats is not an impressive feat.What I would want to see is more matches like AO '20 Thiem vs. Nadal and Olympics Zverev vs. Djokovic where a young guy comes with a strong plan and just outplays the Big 3 guy. Less matches like Sunday and AO '21 Tsitsipas Nadal where the older guys just fall apart.
Really? Novak’s level of play in 2021 led to winning 3 slams and reaching the final of the fourth. Nadal couldn’t even beat him at FO and is injured. What do you expect will change in 4 months?Based on Djoker's actual level of play in 2021, yes I would. He's not a lock moving forward.
Djokovic just had a 3-slam season (almost four). Nadal's only time doing that was back in 2010. Nadal just had a zero-slam season, Djokovic's last time doing that was back in 2017. Nadal had a 17-12 advantage in 2018 and now they're tied. Not to mention he looks in worse shape physically.i disagree, nadals chances are nearly as good as djokovics.
