    I think the problem with Nadal is most of his forehand shots are heavy topspin. If he mixed it up and did some nice fast pace flat shots he would easily win more games.

    They say Federer is the most elegant tennis player of all time ?? I don't know if there is a better shot in the world of tennis than Djokovic's backend parallel, when Djokovic hits the backend parallel properly, only then do you see the real art of tennis. 5:30

    Novak has beaten Rafael convincingly at Roland Garros twice and is 3-0 against Roger in Wimbledon finals. There is no debate anymore. Djokovic is the greatest tennis player of all time 🐐

    To be honest, Nadal has it most difficult out of the big 3. When he was reaching his first titles back in 2005, Federer was already an established champion, who enjoyed a free ride for a few years before a serious threat appeared (meaning Rafa himself). Now Djokovic is in a similar situation on the other side of the timeline - no serious threat with Rafa and Federer well past their primes. Nadal never enjoyed a few year period of “easy ride” like the other two are/have.

    Fun fact: Djokovic is the only player to win 3 straight sets against nadal in his 2 wins in Roland Garros, 3:0 2015, for 0:1 to 3:1, again 3 in a row. Soderling won 1st 3rd and 4th so not 3 in a row!

    Nadal's lefty forehand seems mismatched to Nole's extremely consistent and nasty backhand unlike Fed's backhand (which usually always broke down to Nadal).

  • azoleyehirooni11

    Amazing how Djokovic managed to do the unthinkable and beat Nadal like this in the French Open! Congrats Novak! Plus Wimbledon now, let’s get that golden slam, I’m rooting for you! You deserve it!

    Rafa made 55 unforced errors by the third set and idiots are saying “Djokovic played exceptional.” Novak played the way he normally does, Rafa was just subpar.

    • Casey

      I watched both matches live (2020 final and 2021 semi) and they were both ass. Djokovic played all right but people are overrating it.

    Djokovic just not panicking after going down 5-0. That's so impressive. He knew that he was in better shape than Nadal and that the longer he kept the points going and the match going, the more likely it was that Nadal wouldn't be able to keep his high standard up.

    This match could have had a different score if it weren't for nadal lack of first serve. Nadal first serve was terrible that day. For those who dont know, nadal's first serve is weaker that Federer's and Djokovic's. just review the amount of aces achivement by the big three in history Nadal is way down.

    I saw Nole went against Federer in the final in the US open in 2006or 2007. He was 19. No one around was cheering for him except me. I feel something very special in him. No one knew who he was or where he came from. But he knew what he wanted. He was funny too. I will never forget. Look at who he is now. May God bless you for many more grand slams and a happy family!

    The best match of 2021 Roland Garros right here.


    The biggest edge Novak has over Federer in playing Nadal is that he has a double-handed backhand unlike Federer. Nadal always does a a heavy topspin to Federer backhand causing Federer difficulties and having him resorting to chopping the ball instead of driving or hitting it flat, and Nadal will then pounce. The second is mental strength, in my opinion. I am very happy for Djokovic.

    Not only the greatest match on clay ever, but also a changing of the guard at RG, Nadal's reign is over now. The king is death, long live the king! Djokovic will pulverize most records out there playing like this, and when he finally stops there will be no discussion for a very, very long time about who the GOAT is.
