What happened in other matched during that "peak Djokovic" year?

Why don't we just compare the # of slams at the same age? That should settle it.

Sabratha 12-03-2012 05:23 AM

Djokovic got hot for that tournament, he retired against Roddick the next year.

20 year old Djokovic - 1 GS
20 year old Federer - 0 GS

If these are the type of threads that are gonna be posted until the season starts again, then the AO can't come fast enough.

Going by that logic, Hewitt and Safin are better than Federer.

Federer destroyed Djokovic in US Open finals.

axel89 12-03-2012 05:42 AM

honestly djokovic has more potential than federer i know go and yell at me but djokovic won AO with 2x more competition than fed winning wimbledon
djokovic was also more succesful than fed
20 years old djoko -1
20 years old fed -0

How about at Djoker's current age of 25?

I guess 20 year old Safin and Hewitt are better than Federer, too, and have more "potential".

DropShotArtist 12-03-2012 05:46 AM

Wait does this mean Chang is the GOAT?

25 year old Djokovic - 5 GS
25 year old Federer (in the end of 2006 season) - 9 GS

No but winning GS with 17 years is a great achievement!

thank you for leading me to my point. The expected result. This 2011 FO win over Djokovic was an upset in many ways. As was the montreal match. Federer won the 2007 AO, 2007 USO, 2007 Dubai. The expected result for a world number 1.

So 5555 can post this thread all he wants.. it just shows a match that prime Federer choked away. He redeemed himself a month later.

Also, i Love the quotes. does 2011 not count as peak Djokovic now?

Do you seriously believe he'll ever have a season as good as that again?
