    FEDERER’s historic age related H-H disadvantage

    Federer will always have an age disadvantage when it comes to H2H against Nadal/Djokovic. People forget that because the quality of younger players have been poor for the last 10 years and Nadal/Djokovic hasn’t had the same level of challenges Fed had to deal with.

    Nadal and Djokovic fans are in great conflict of interests..

    Fed’s competition is actually pretty strong overall. He had a handful of slam winners in his generation which he had to overcome. He had the toughest up-and comers in Nadal and Djokovic who are both ATGs. Sure Nadal and Djokovic had Federer (prev gen), Murray, Wawrinka (later) and each other...

    Biggest anomaly in weeks at #1?

    I think Rios. No.1 is about your performance over a year so some players like Wawrinka may not get no.1 despite winning 3 because he won 1 per year over a 3 year span. However I feel you should hold the majority of the slams to be no.1 with other touraments being the tie-breaker for multiple...

    The problem with Roger Federer G.O.A.T. claims: Nadal and Djokovic rivalries

    Djokovic and Nadal are up-and coming players of Fed’s generation. In Fed’s favour, nobody else had stronger up-and-coming players to deal with.

    Fed is Not Rafa's or Novak's or Murray's PEER

    Even if it works, they always want to achieve more so they will try to adapt but as I said previously, its not that easy.

    Fed is Not Rafa's or Novak's or Murray's PEER

    If it was that easy, why can’t Murray have more firepower? He’s capable of it but it never comes out at the big moments.

    Fed is Not Rafa's or Novak's or Murray's PEER

    He would but there’s only so much you can do. Fed can work on his fitness but he’ll never be a grinder. Nad can work on his serve and volley but he’s always gonna grind. Sampras can work on his groundstrokes but he’ll always be a serve and volleyer etc.

    Fed is Not Rafa's or Novak's or Murray's PEER

    Conditions were much different in Fed’s era. The surfaces were faster, rackets were smaller and poly strings wasn’t as prolific. Thats why Ferrer (Fed’s gen) got killed by Fed’s generation but managed to do better later on when conditions slowed down. Murray at his best would be a Hewitt type...

    Wilander doesn't want another Federer in tennis

    He should speak for himself. Players like Federer contribute a lot to the sport.

    Maybe it’s time Roger.

    Yep just like how Pete didn’t run away, kept going and won his slams at 35/36 after a five year drought. Oh wait, thats Federer

    Annacone: Kyrgios is the most talented player since Roger Federer arrived

    Not really. Sure Nick is a talneted player but he doesn’t seem much different to other aggressive, powerful and high risk players out there.

    Video of Federer’s shot of the year + Kyrgios reaction

    Federer won a point he shouldn’t have won. Nadal won a point he should have won earlier with the overhead. More impressed with Federer’s point.

    How many slams for Federer if he was same age as Nadalovic?

    If Nadalovic was 5 years older, I think Fed would win a few more as this is before poly strings became prolific, rackets got bigger and courts became slower taking away Nadalovic’s advantage. If Fed was 5 years younger he would probably win a few less as the conditions favoured Nadalovic’s games.

    To people denying the concept of a ''big 4'', and comparing Murray to Wawrinka - here are some stats

    Hence my point about him being included with the big 3 debatable.

    To people denying the concept of a ''big 4'', and comparing Murray to Wawrinka - here are some stats

    Sorry, forgot about those. Still compared to the big 3, he’s still far behind.
