    GOAT is fictional thing - says Roger

    GOAT does exists, however, no one player has a a true consensus yet since mutiple players can lay legitimate claims to it. Federer could have closed the deal on this as he was the closest to put all other player's arguments to bed, but he failed the final hurdle each time. Nadal has a real...

    Can Rafa Nadal go past Roger Federer’s majors record in 2020 ?

    in "peak form" perhaps. But i think H2H outside of slam victories and overall record is not that important.

    Can Rafa Nadal go past Roger Federer’s majors record in 2020 ?

    Nadal's slam performances this year were really fantastic. F at AO Win at RG SF at Wim Win at USO One of his best years at slams... the last two years have seen nadal play some of his best stuff at Wim. I don't see why he would decline so terribly next year.... He still looks so strong and...

    Watching Goffin's performance against Federer, it is sad how the competition crumbled against the Big Three in majors.

    the problem is consistency. few players in history have had an average level as high as fed, djok and nadal. bonus mention for fed especially --> Fed's avg level is ludicrously high - just see his consistency over the course of his career. on an average day goffin is gonna lose to the big 3.

    Would Federer winning the US Open by beating Djokovic make up for Wimbledon?

    Yep. Pretty much this. Fed's victory would have been one of the most epic of all time at 37 beating nadal/novak b2b. No cigar.

    Jim Courier: Without injuries, Novak is gonna have the most GS out of the Big 3

    Its Novak's to lose, really. He has the matchup advantage right now against his main 2 rivals everywhere except RG.

    Laver: Fed is GOAT

    A great candidate for sure but not the clear-cut GOAT. Fed had chances to put this debate to bed during the course of his career, but it wasn't meant to be. Other rivals stepped up. BTW - its clear that Laver loved Fed's style and he would like fed to be goat everything else being equal. but...

    Book it. Djokovic is getting to 18 slams by the end of AO 2020.

    djokovic won this match due to his clutchness...but he cant clutch win every slam here onwards. Federer has shown he cannot protect his records against djokovic, but the field may do it for him. djokovic's level of play was overall not convincing and it was only his clutch play that saved him

    Where does Djokovic rank all time on grass?

    Compared to djokovic, sampras had meh competition too at W. Djokovic at 5 slams is below sampras right now overall but his performances in finals were so impressive against two other ATGs - Fed and Nadal.

    What went wrong at 40-15 for Federer?

    yes. its ok. you go for your shots. if you miss its execution, and that is only in his hands. But Federer's down the t serve is one of his kill shots. he hits it very well... i was including more than the MPs btw (i.e. djokovic;s general returning on the deuce side.) But the MPs should have...

    Federer 0-8 in Finals v Nadalovic at FO/Wimbledon

    He actually lost to corretja when up 2-0 in sets. try again. dont give me the prime nonsense either. pete has no business losing a 2-0 lead on grass against corretja on grass whether he is 25 or 31.

    What went wrong at 40-15 for Federer?

    the pattern is djokovic's return on the deuce side, and he got burned on mps before. have a look at their match history and the results in deciding sets. its looks seriously ugly for federer against novak especially in recent history. i dont think djokovic is going to able to get a solid...

    What went wrong at 40-15 for Federer?

    margins are so small. it literally separated a wimbledon championship. if this was the first time it happened, i would have said whatever. But we had some past history to use and we know the patterns of play in djokovic - federer matches. these guys have played many deciding sets and tie...

    Which player is mentally the strongest?

    Federer fights the hardest even when he is down in the score, which explains why he loses in titanic battles. djokovic is the most clutch nadal has the best concentration / intensity.
