Novak Djokovic: Counting Down Djoker's Best Moments on Clay Courts

Novak Djokovic is one step away from achieving the ultimate feat in tennis.  If he conquers the French Open, the Serb will finish off the "Career Slam," meaning he's won all four grand slams.  If he wins it this year, it would also be his fourth consecutive grand slam victory. 

It's no surprise Djokovic's talent on hard courts.  He has won two Australian Opens and the US Open in 2011.  He's also been in a final in the year ending grand slam.  Djokovic wasn't considered a grass court player before he conquered Wimbledon, defeating Nadal in the final. 

So, the clay is the only surface that Djokovic has not won a slam.  However, he's had some winning moments on the red dirt. 

Thus far in 2012, Djokovic has been in three clay court events.  They include the blue clay of Madrid, the Italian Open in Rome and Monte Carlo.  In those tournaments, Novak has lost to Nadal twice in the final and a surprising upset to Janko Tipsarevic. 

This hasn't been the best season for Djokovic on clay.  If he wins at Rolland Garros, that can all change.

Here's a look at some of the best moments Djoker has seen on clay courts.
