At the moment his Grand Slam record is behind Federer's 2006 (Federer got to all 4 GS finals, Djokovic didn't). He will have won about 15 less matches as well. And Federer's 4 Masters + WFT > 5 Masters for Djokovic. So hard to think of what criteria people would even discuss this season as being the best ever.
(The only thing would be perhaps would be being consistent winner over the number 2 player)
Good points. I think the conclusion to be drawn is that most people have short memories and/or are biased or simply lack the facts.
