If Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic Were all the same age.
 
I pose this question because it pais me to hear people say that nadal is better than Fed just because of his head to head with Nadal, and Djokovic is better than both of them. So i pose this question Who would be Number 1 is all of these guys were 24. I say 24 becasue Djokovic is currently 24, And at 24 years of age Both Fed and Nadal won 3 of the 4 grand slams.
Neither of them is better than the next the fact is when one of them is their best the other isn't, plain and simple. Fed is getting old, and Nadal is falling, and djokoer is rising.



Reply and say which of the 4 slams would go to who, and why your player of choice would be #1

Federer - Wimbly, US Open
Nadal - French
Djokovic - Australian

No point adding Rafa to the poll unless it's to do with insulting the guy in this forum.

I voted Novak because I'm too bored. Why does it matter? It is very difficult to predict a peak of a tennis player. This sport is so brutal. In my honest opinion we are blessed to have top 3 guys.

Federer > Nadal > Djokovic

It's common that the upcoming one developed his game by examining the game of the current best so as to form the game that will beat him. Whereas the game of the current best already reached the mature state. With the older age, the current best's game is therefore harder to change.

But if they're both at the same age now, Nadal wouldn't have Federer's game as a target game to beat before he reached his own mature game. And Djokovic wouldn't have Nadal and Federer as his target either.

Neither of them could challenge Fed in his prime.

Fed wins everything except RG which goes to Ralph.
Though Djokovic makes the final of AO, USO and Ralph the SW19 final.

Fed > Ralph > Nole

Federer would have two top players (Novak, Nadal) that he would be losing to.

Novak could only lose to Nadal.

Nadal coudl only lose to Novak.

But somehow everyone convince themselves that Roger would be #1?

Probably. I guess he prefers ping pong to tennis, as that is the game Nadal plays.

Agreed with this poster.

Im just glad to see they are all in the same era.:smile:

Of course I wouldn't ming if Rafa bowed out like Borg did because he couldn't handle losing.:twisted:

Nadal is an early bloomer on Clay and Grass and Fed and Novak are relatively late bloomers on all surfaces. I'd say Nadal will win the first few French opens and maybe 1 or 2 Wimbys whereas Fed would win a few hardcourt slams and 1~2 Wimbys. After that though Novak and Fed would take over with Fed winning most of the grass meetings and about 60% of the hard and clay meetings. Nadal may manage to pull of a slam on any surface if he is lucky.

celoft 08-11-2011 09:15 AM

Federer, of course.

pvaudio 08-11-2011 09:39 AM

It would be the way it's typically been: Federer, Nadal, Djoker, and in that order. Take a prime Federer from a few years ago, and tell me that anyone would have beaten him regularly? Djoker can't beat him now, and Rafa would only win on clay.

Agree with you on who would win a certain majors. And Fed would be no. 1 because he would win two of them.
But Rafa would be no. 1 until 23 of age, challenged by Novak. By the time Novak would find out he needs to cut gluten from his diet, Federer would reach his prime and then dominate everyone for at least 4 years.
18-23: Nad, Djok, Fed.
24-27: Fed, Djok, Nad.
Djokovic would occasionally reach no. 1, but not for long.

Federer had never had the confidence that he gained from 2003 to 2007 for sure! he never could reach 16 slams! maybe 8 or 9.

The King >>>> Nadal >> Federer

Nadal's peak was 2008, Fed's 2005 and Djoko's 2011. Someone else's peak in 2014 will beat Djoko in 2014.
