In 2008 or why, even in 2010…

…this would have sounded absolutely crazy. Forget the gluten, it now doesn’t matter what else Djokovic wins next month or for the rest of this year! 37-0!

Of Djokovic’s 37 wins, 13 are against Top 10 players, including four against Nadal and three against Federer, who in all his years of dominance never started a season in so grand a fashion. If Djokovic reaches the French Open final, he could have 43 consecutive victories—one more than John McEnroe’s record 42 to start 1984 (that streak ended in the French Open final, after McEnroe won the first two sets against Ivan Lendl).

Djokovic’s 2011 on-court stats border on the absurd: He has won 89% of his service games, 43% of his return games and half of his break points.
