Lost in the glare of the 30 Grand Slam singles titles won collectively by Federer and Nadal is a man who would doubtless have been successful in any era. As it is, Djokovic already has six major championship trophies, matching Boris Becker, who has been an upbeat presence in his entourage, and Stefan Edberg. Winning here would draw Djokovic even with John McEnroe and Mats Wilander.
Not one of those men showed the diversity of game to reach multiple finals at each Grand Slam event. Now, Djokovic has done that, joining only five other men in Open era history -- Federer, Nadal, Andre Agassi, Ivan Lendl and Ken Rosewall.
Now, he'd like to beat Rafa at Roland Garros -- something that has happened only once.
