Boom.
Novak only guy to beat Nadal and Federer at all 4 grand slam events.
If he maintains his level over the next 2-3 years and wins the gold next year , he would have to be right in the conversation as one of the greatest of all times.

Roddick made it (US Open?) in 2006 I think.

Wouldn't it motivate others though? Like it's not just a fluke that a guy wins one of the major events so to take them on requires some serious skill. Seeing them win over and over I think would make some guys want it more, not that it has worked.

What's even more impressive is that these guys keep winning and they don't have a ref handing them wins like in basketball.
The Nets will finish with the worst record and the Celtics will end up with the 4th pick.

Absolutely amazing, wins 9 of 10 games to close out the match and many of those were at love.  He is something special.  A few years back he started the year at like 44-0, now he appears headed to the first 2 Majors and may very well win the Grand Slam.

A 2015 Grand Slam is absolutely on the table.

Tsonga v. Wawrinka off to a good start tied 1-1 at a set a piece.

Djokovic v. Murray scheduled to start at 10 am eastern.

Would love to see Murray win but would also love to see a Calendar Slam.
At least a goldfish with a Lincoln Log on its back goin' across your floor to your sock drawer has a miraculous connotation to it.

With Federer, Nadal getting older

Djokovic has a chance to capitalise on this as I don't see anyone else on these guys level
No offense to Murray and Berdych

Djokovic would perhaps be top 5 all time if he stays healthy and there's no competition left

If he wins the Calendar Slam that would give him 11 title and tied with Borg and the only men ahead of him would be Federer with 17 and Sampras and Nadal at 14.  Nadal might have another 1 or 2 in him, but Federer appears done.  Presumably Djokovic will win grand slams next year and even after that, so he could reasonably end up 1st or 2nd all time.  Give him the Calendar Year Slam, something that hasn't happened since the 60's, plus he is already the best ever at the Australian Open (in the open era, Emerson has 1 more overall than him), would be creeping up the Wimbledon list, and I think that all adds up to he might very well be the best ever, not just top 5.

Yeah that's a hard thing to argue with, especially if he winds up catching Nadal (I think he's too old to catch Feds).

Murray pushed Djokovic after a rain delay to 5 sets, but Novak pulled out on Saturday.

Wawrinka breaks Djokovic to take the 2nd set, all tied up at a set a piece.  Live on NBC right now.

Wawrinka doesn't get the credit he deserves for the player he's become.

Wawrinka really playing well, appears to be the better man today.
