    Lol I actually read "If Djokovic gets to #18 I'll think about it". It made sense since you were "a bit of a glory hunter" before. :D

    I think peak Fed dominates the field a bit more. I'd fancy peak Fed to beat peak Nole anywhere. But peak Nole is way more of a rival to peak Rafa.

    IMO, peak Fed wins it

    Out of interest mate, how many slams do you think a player would need to win to surpass Laver as outright GOAT? :)

    That is all fine and dandy. But that was a lame attempt at earning some brownie points from the other fan base.

    20 majors, 7 YE #1 rankings, top 10 until 35 y.o. are required.

    One does not simply beat Laver's awesome records.
    Federer came close, if only he hadn't choked several majors away. (But even if he had 20 majors and everything else as it is now, I'd say he would be equal to Laver and would have to beat him in longevity to edge ahead. Laver isn't Rosewall though, his last top season was 1975 when he turned 37.)
