Federer Era vs Djokovic Era - Who had it harder?
 
Discuss :)

phnx90 04-28-2013 06:01 AM

Djokovic, because he has Federer in his era.

Edit: and Nadal

Edit 2: I'm not insinuating Federer played in a weak era

NatF 04-28-2013 06:07 AM

Federer's era had more surface variation, apparently that makes era's harder ;)

Hood_Man 04-28-2013 06:53 AM

Well the answer's not Djokovic anyway, not with a Federer who's approaching 60 and requires a titanium back brace 24/7, a Nadal who severely declined his way to 7 consecutive ATP finals and 3 Major Finals in 2011, a Murray who until last September was still working on his wind controlling abilities for his audition for The X-Men, and a Ferrer who's sole purpose in life is to lay cartoonish traps along the tracks of the ATP wacky races to clear the way for Novak and the other 3 to take the lead.

Or something.

Fed is 31 when djoker hit the prime, young federer would have annihilated djoker

Novak BY FAR! Novak had to deal with Peak Fed, Peak Nadal, Peak Murray...the list goes on.

Who did Fed have? Goran Ivanišević. :lol:

Peak Del Potro. :)

(For me, the REAL fifth ranked player after the Big Four)

That is really easy to answer. Fed had it piece of cake on all surfaces until 2005 and on hard court until 2007 (that's all his peak years). Djoko has had it super hard from day 1.

Exactly, Delpo is better than most of the competition Fed faced back in the day.

Peak Hewitt/Roddick would struggle to beat Simon. :lol:

Roddick, Hewitt, Safin, Nalbandian, Agassi and Davydenko are a piece of cake? Ironically past prime Roddick leads the h2h with Djokovic lol.

LOL Roddick would NEVER beat Novak from 2011 onwards.

It's a good thing he retired when he did.

Djokodal Fan 04-28-2013 08:36 AM

this is joke thread.

Federer's opponents included only pigeons like Roddick, Hewitt, Safin + some mental midgets who were not even close to Fed's ground game

Look who Joker is playing against....he is toe to toe against 2 other greats like Fed , Nadal in terms of ground game and a equally tough physical opponent like Murray.

IS this even a debate? Fed just capitalized on a weak weak era. The real competition started only in 2008 and we all know the great Fed started becoming a lap dog for Nadal once he faced small pressure

2004 Roddick on grass would have a good shot against Novak. Even fast hardcourts if Djokovic was off his game he could be in trouble.

Apparently Roddick only faced baby Djoker. There is a reason why Roddick has 1 slam Vs. 6 slams for Djoker.

Roddick cannot do jack against a primed djoker. Infact Djoker will beat him playing in wheelchair!

Do you want me to throw the list a non names who have a winning h2h against Fed? Here is one for you against Patrick Rafter 0–3 ..... a fair comparison!

MichaelNadal 04-28-2013 08:41 AM

Federer. Novak has zero competition besides Nadal, Murray and Federer. 2 of those 3 are past their peak years.

Oh please... 35 year old Agassi was every bit as piece of cake as Fed himself will be at that age (and his fans are already using his age as excuse #1 for losing despite the fact he is only 31). Nalby has never had the slightest consistency on any surface, Safin was at his peak in 2000 (long before the Fed era), Hewitt burned out early (and both of these amassed injuries), Davydenko was by all definition average until the late 2000s and could never handle best of 5 (inferior to Delpo). Roddick was a limited player who was far in talent from a guy like Murray (who is only mid-career and has twice as many masters and more slam finals than retired Roddick).
Djoko has had from the start: 2 GOAT contenders. Massive lol at the comparison :)
