    With his US Open loss he completes the full set to achieve his ' runner-up Career Slam'.

    Yea what is the deal with Fed not coming through in the 5th sets in so many slam finals it seems or just finals in general I guess?

    Funny! So he now has the career slam, And the runner up slam. Djoko should have retired yesterday to get the Retirement Career slam because Federer is just taking all of the other career slams under his belt.

    He's won 2 five setters. Lost 3.

    When you've been in 21 grand slam finals in your carreer and won 15 of them thats pretty good. Particularily when facing such a great player as Rafa in 5 of those 6 Championship match losses.

    Keep in mind that federer isn't done, he still has at least a couple good years ahead of him where he will remain at the top of the pack.

    15 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 14.

    Always.


    Oh, and 1 FO win, 4 finals >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 0 finals

    And the others guys to finish runner up at all 4 slams? Laver, Lendl, Rosewall, among others. You're really making a good case for Federer as GOAT.
