I want something that is clear as night and day. So don't come back with return or backhand cos those are debatable.

I can point to djokovic's movement which is on a different planet to agassi.

So, please bring forth your opinions.

To answer the original question. Djokovic is definitely an all time great. Not a GOAT candidate though. You dont pawn Nadal across 3 surfaces and 7 finals consecutively at his peak without being an all time great. Add to that, his game play when down is stuff of legends.

What the Djoker has shown is that his peak is as good as anyone. he lacks longevity but hopefully that will come.
I can name more then one thing.


Better hand eye coordination
Better ROS
Cleaner swiper at the ball
Better BH
About equal FH
Better on grass
About the same on slow hard courts
Better fast hard court player
Better indoors
More aggressive from the baseline
Better ability to take the ball earlier
Harder hitter
Better all around fast surface player
