Firstly, the only reason I quoted 6 tennis experts in my opening post, is to show it's not just *********s who claim that Novak is an all-time great. It's not my argument for claim that Djokovic is an all-time great, and therefore I have not commited logical fallacy.

Secondly, had I used these opinions as argument, I would not have commited argumentum ad populum, but argumentum ad verecundiam http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argument_from_authority.

Thirdly, this is my argument: "I think Djokovic is an all-time great. He won 5 slams (fact) and was No. 1 for 2011 and 2012 (fact)." http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showp...&postcount=349
