    I saw that on ESPN.com. Really interesting how at the exact same age Federer is exactly one ahead in each category. What's amazing about Roger is that once he reached number one, he didn't relinquish it, and the fact that if you looked at both players at the age of 21, for example, there would be no comparison. Federer has done a lot in the last 4 years.

    Good post.

    Nice... so we know now that Fed is the GOAT.
    Is it?

    Well if Rog wins the FO and Wimby he'll have 12 slams at 25 - his birthday is 8/8.
