The two have faced each other 59 times, including in all four major finals, with Djokovic leading 30–29 overall.[4] Djokovic leads 15–13 in finals of all levels, while Nadal leads 11–7 at the majors, including 5–4 in major finals. Nadal leads 8–2 at the French Open and 2–1 at the US Open, while Djokovic leads 2–0 at the Australian Open and 2–1 at Wimbledon. To date, Djokovic is the only player to have beaten Nadal in all four majors.

8 non clay majors in a one trick pony.

Conveniently left this part out

Of their 59 meetings, 27 matches have been on hard courts with Djokovic leading 20–7, 28 on clay with Nadal leading 20–8, and 4 on grass where they are tied 2–2.

Take away French and really anything on clay and he’s considered an all time great but not in the running for GOAT.

Overrated. Next.

I deal in Grand Slam surfaces. Clay is a gimmick. Grass is as well but not quite as much.

Djokovic - Alcaraz playing in the semis right now, on Tennis Channel.  First set to Djokovic, 6-3, but it looks like it's going to be a really close match.

Alcaraz only wins one game after cramping, and Djokovic end up winning easily in 4 sets.  But those first two sets were some of the greatest tennis ever played.

Watched the semis with Coco along with Alvarez/Medvedev. While I feel like I've come a long way in appreciating women's sports, I'm not sure the difference between the genders is any more apparent than in tennis. Like watching a totally different sport.

That said, best of luck to Coco tonight!

How about Medvedev last night? Know he’s no slouch at #3, but damn he schooled the hell out of Alcarez. I was surprised.
