    Medvedev may end up the greatest non-Big 3 HC'er since Agassi?

    Sorry, man, respectfully disagree. H2H isn't a fair reflection at all. Consider Federer-Djokovic as an example: Most of their matches have occurred during Fed's 30's. In other words, Djokovic got to face older Fed more times than Fed got to face younger Djokovic. They've only played 14...

    So what happens when Fed's 20 is surpassed?

    I'm fully expecting them to run away with the slam race. The younger ones are that bad.

    So what happens when Fed's 20 is surpassed?

    Dude, half of Nadal's slams are easier than Fed's from 2003-2006 and if you think 2003-2006 was bad, look at 2010 and 2017-2020. An even more embarrassing passage.

    Was the slowing down of courts inevitable?

    @Dolgopolov85, IMO the court speeds of the 2000's were perfect for the modern game. They weren't too fast for servefests to become prominent, but they weren't too slow as to allow mostly baseline play. All rounded players could still succeed on these courts, they could play from the baseline...

    I call it

    I mean, I don't see that happening anytime soon since his opponents are more useless against him than they've ever been LOL. Nadal has had an easier time winning RG in his 30's than ever before.

    Who faced the strongest opposition in 3 slam winning years?

    Has as many votes as 2007 LOL.

    When will we see the level of the Wimbledon 2008 final again?

    I think the 2018 Wimb SF is pretty close in terms of quality and drama. Especially the drama with the incertitude of who the winner would be after the match was postponed for the following day.

    The problem with the Slam count

    If Novak's era is 2011-2015, then Fed's should be 2004-2009.

    The problem with the Slam count

    Good point on the injury part. Fed has actually lost slams because of injury, unlike Nadal. I mean, Nadal has also lost some slams because of injury (not as many as the fanboys think), but even in his injury years he managed to grab a slam at least so can't feel too sorry for him. Fed, OTOH...

    The problem with the Slam count

    At one point, it wasn't disputed that Fed was the best of his era.

    Medvedev may end up the greatest non-Big 3 HC'er since Agassi?

    Yes and Nadal and Djokovic have their respective leads BECAUSE of those slumping periods. It wouldn't be 24-16 for Nadal if he didn't play Fed so often in his slumping period, just like it wouldn't be 27-25 for Djokovic if he didn't play Nadal so often in his slumping period.

    The problem with the Slam count

    The guy you're replying to is one of the best Nadal fans around, so I wouldn't lash like that at him. In my personal opinion, as of 2021, competition has definitely evened out for all 3 of the Big 3, so nobody should win the competition argument at this point. Nadal fans also shouldn't bring up...

    Fed's 5 Straight US Open's (with popcorn)

    None of the Big 3 should really attack each other's USO fields since it cuts both ways.

    Never seen someone lose in straights that should have won more than this o_O

    Damn, that was rough. Horrible choke by Venus.

    2012 Fed (8th best Wimbledon) beats peak Djokovic convincingly at Wimbledon 2012

    No evidence 2012 Fed was better at Wimb, buddy ;) Age is real, buddy, all the big 3 declined at 29.

    2012 RG semi final is the decisive Djokovic - Federer RG match.

    Well, the fact that 2012 Fed had no business even making the semis might have something to do with that 8-B

    Medvedev may end up the greatest non-Big 3 HC'er since Agassi?

    Uhhh, Fed met Nadal 5 times in 2013-early 2014 and Nadal met Djokovic 7 times during 2015-2016.

    We have differing opinions so best leave it at that.

    2012 Fed (8th best Wimbledon) beats peak Djokovic convincingly at Wimbledon 2012

    Well, 2008 Fed had better movement, better FH, he could actually use the slice to hurt Djokovic, his mental strength was very good and his stamina was also very good. He hung with Djokovic in the first 2 sets fairly well in 2015, but ran out of gas afterwards. I knew my opinion was...

    Who faced the strongest opposition in 3 slam winning years?

    That's not what I meant. If you compare their HC results and their performances against the the dominant guy, Agassi comes out ahead.

    2012 Fed (8th best Wimbledon) beats peak Djokovic convincingly at Wimbledon 2012

    OTOH, 2008 Fed would probably make Djokovic pay for his inability to win the second set like he did in 2015.

    2012 Fed (8th best Wimbledon) beats peak Djokovic convincingly at Wimbledon 2012

    I disagree it's harder to deal with. Well, Fed was 33-34, of course he dealt with Djokovic's serve worse. Even if his return had declined a bit by 2008, I don't think it was worse than in 2014-2015. The specifics of the Fedal match-up makes this comparison very difficult anyway.

    Who faced the strongest opposition in 3 slam winning years?

    I agree it would be 5 sets, but I'm not sure if pitting them up against each other would give us any solid answers since they had similar performances against a peak ATG in those tournaments. This should tell you what their levels were, IMO. I still agree with 2011 AO Fed > anyone at the 2004...
