    AO 2021 R4: [1] Novak Djokovic vs. [14] Milos Raonic

    Like the previous poster said it still no longer makes sense with the way how careers have lengthened. There is no big difference with someone born in 1987 or 1990.

    Ranking freeze prevented a seismic change in tennis

    Having your records broken doesn't suddenly make your career invalid. Nothing anyone does now or in the future will erase or "save" Federer's career and his dominance over 2 decades.

    Nadal confirms participation in Paris Masters one day after Djokovic confirmed he's not playing Paris

    He was 18 years old. Was he supposed to be winning everything at that age with no letdowns?

    Have Smartphones Destroyed a Generation?

    Smartphones aren't going anywhere until they're replaced by a new technology. If you think smartphones have destroyed a generation then you must think the game is destroyed forever.

    Andy Murray: The Man Who Ended The Big Three’s No. 1 Reign

    So what? The point of this series of posts was highlighting the men who made it to #1. Whatever the circumstances its still a rare achievement.

    It seems quite simple to me

    Happened in basketball in the 80s with Bird, Jordan, and Michael all emerging in a 5 year span. And another potential GOAT in Kareem was still going strong even though at a far advanced age when the last one emerged (Jordan)

    What's the most significant career loss for each player?

    Federer just turned 39 only 2 months ago and hasn't played a single match at 39 years old. Which match are you referring to?

    GOAT is a marketing term

    Lol I guess you missed the point of the article that LL is the reason why the term GOAT is how its used today, that's the point. And lol at LL one of the greatest to ever do it being a mediocre rapper that nobody remembers. You need to brush up on your understanding of hip hop clearly.

    GOAT is a marketing term LL is responsible for the modern usage of the term GOAT and how its used in sports and music conversations. Nobody was calling people the term GOAT in 1998 or any year until LL called himself that. Nor will...

    GOAT is a marketing term

    The term GOAT was actually created by LL Cool J and was originally used in rap where it spread to sports and other avenues. Ali called himself the Greatest but he didn't call himself the GOAT.

    There’s no more Big 3...

    He's 1 year older than Djokovic so it literally doesn't make a difference unless you're saying it would have been better for Nadal to not be a teen prodigy which makes absolutely no sense. Djokovic became a top 20 player in 2006 which is 1 year after Nadal. Why you're acting as if there was some...

    There’s no more Big 3...

    So what? How does that benefit him more considering you're talking about a guy less than 1 year older than him not a guy who's 6 years older. Blossoming later than a prodigy makes no difference.

    There’s no more Big 3...

    How has he benefitted more than Nadal? Are you saying there's something in Nadal's style that makes it easier for newer players to beat him?

    This loss just makes USO even more frustrating

    These kind of posts are so disrespectful to other players especially the US Open Champion Thiem. Should we just disband the entire tour and make it only 3 players? Why is it so distressing that somebody else had a chance to win for once?

    Federer's consecutive weeks at #1

    Not really. I'm not as big a Bleach fan as I used to be at all since I didn't like the post Arrancar stuff one bit but I'll still watch to see how it's going.

    Federer's consecutive weeks at #1

    Frankly that's ********. No matter what era a player plays in they're dependent on medical advancements and "state of competition". You still have to produce and win and nobody would have made such a ridiculous suggestion 20 years ago but then again biased fanbases didn't exist to the level...

    Federer's consecutive weeks at #1

    How does late career stuff not matter for someone who's winning and doing well? That makes no sense to not give acknowledgement to someone who at an advanced stage in their career can still go out and do well and get results.

    Thiem could be the new Cilic ?

    What are you basing this on? If Thiem had born around 86/87 then he would have entered the tour during Federer's prime and the rise of the other 2. I dont see anyway he beats any of those guys around 2006-09.

    Pat Cash: "Federer not even the second greatest in his own era"

    Fedal? Nadal is only 11 months older than Djokovic. It makes sense to use that Federer but it's nonsensical to use a guy who is not even a full year older than Djokovic.

    Rome 2020 F: Djokovic (1) vs Schwartzman (8)

    You forgot Federer. Wawrinka as well and a couple of others.

    Is Thiem now considered better than del Potro?

    Barring the emergence of some future superstar on the level of the big 3 those days are never coming back. Even Federer didn't 2 out of the 3 things you mentioned before age 21.

    Is Thiem now considered better than del Potro?

    He'd be a heavy favorite in a French Open final against Djokovic at this point in time.

    US Open 2020 final - Dominic Thiem[2] vs Alexander Zverev [5]

    The complaints by some in here are just ridiculous. Fans of specific players rather than the actual game and just **** on every player that's not their favorite. If you hate this so much why are you wasting your time by watching? This makes no sense.

    Can Serena be considered an all time top 5?

    But she didn't which renders that point moot. You can only judge on what actually happened not what might have happened.

    Is Timmy Now a More Accomplished Hard Court Player?

    If he wins Sunday he absolutely becomes the best of the players who are not within the Big 3's age range and I dont see much of an argument that would be made against him.

    Muster at the French Open

    I can imagine it. Nadal would have whipped Sampras the same as he would on any single day in his career playing at the French Open.
