    Return of serve (THE SHOT) Nadal or Ferrer?

    I could go either way, both are obviously amazing. But you lost me on the fed doing better "when it matters more." Nope.

    Fed 6 of 7?

    True heavyweight champ.

    Fed 6 of 7?

    I guess I never realized that. He’s the GOAT. I’m secure enough with Rafa’s legacy to look back at what Fed accomplished and give him the edge over the other two. His peaks were higher, longer lasting, and the eye-test is indisputable.

    Fastest tennis game ever?

    Well, makes sense. Goran is an all-time great server and Pete frequently took return games off.

    Would 2006 and 2007 Versions of Roger have won back-to-back Calendar Year Grand Slams in '15 & '16?

    Not at all. They are meant to test the greatness of a GOAT in different eras. I have a few to ask to does the same for Novak for the 2000's and 90's. Just finishing with the Fed ones first.

    Did the lack of a bathroom break doom Djokovic in the USO final

    I was shocked there was no MTO, bathroom break, pink drink from the crowd, etc. I'm sure Murray, Thiem and Tsistsipas were all thinking the same.

    Would 2006 and 2007 Versions of Roger have won back-to-back Calendar Year Grand Slams in '15 & '16?

    The only thing preventing Roger from winning the CYGS back to back in '06 and '07 was Rafa at the FO. But in 2015 and '16, Rafa failed to make the final. Would the 2006 & '07 version of Roger Federer win the Calendar Year Grand Slam once or even both times in '15 and '16? An interesting thought...

    The day Federer cleaned Djokovic's clock and out-clutched him at his peak

    Really puts it in perspective. Novak’s luck extends to timeliness of birth.

    I'm kind of glad Federer lost W19 and Novak lost the CYGS

    Forget weeks at number one, Master 1000’s, and grand slams. Sentiments regarding Zverev is now the metric for ranking the big 3.

    Would 2011 Djokovic have won any Grand Slams in 2006 or 2007?

    AO: Djokovic never won on that AO surface and as much as the current surface is perfect for Novak, the AO surface back then was tailor made for Fed. All that said, I do think Novak could and probably would beat the 06 version of Fed because his ankle injury. RG: The 2011 version of Novak didn't...

    2007 USOerer vs 2011 USOvic vs 2015 USOvic: popular vote

    A-Games come out when an all-time great is threatened. Fed didn't feel threatened going into that match, nor during it. His B-game was still a straight set GS final win.

    Would 2011 Djokovic have won any Grand Slams in 2006 or 2007?

    All you have to do is say which ones he gets and why. Let's see.

    Would 2011 Djokovic have won any Grand Slams in 2006 or 2007?

    No way he beats Fed at Wimbledon in 06. Maybe in 07. But people are looking at Rafa taking Fed to 5 sets in 07 as the reason Novak would win. Unless Novak is walking into that Wimbledon final with a mental edge from bullying Fed around one month prior at RG, don't count on it. Without that...

    Would 2011 Djokovic have won any Grand Slams in 2006 or 2007?

    I'll go with the one that won 5 straight USO's, all before they built the roof to keep the wind out.

    Would 2011 Djokovic have won any Grand Slams in 2006 or 2007?

    So what we've learned ITT is that die-hard Novak fans see 1-2 slam wins versus 2 for Nadal and 4 for Federer...and this is the best version of Novak against the best version of Fed and 2nd best version of Nadal. :unsure:

    Would 2011 Djokovic have won any Grand Slams in 2006 or 2007?

    What's your rationale for the 07 USO pick? Novak has never been dominant there and damn near lost to the 2011 version of Roger in that semi. The 07 version was way better.

    Would 2011 Djokovic have won any Grand Slams in 2006 or 2007?

    I'm starting to think you don't even understand your own premise.

    Would 2011 Djokovic have won any Grand Slams in 2006 or 2007?

    ^^^Was too young to watch in 06 & 07. ^^^

    Would 2011 Djokovic have won any Grand Slams in 2006 or 2007?

    I personally think the 2011 version of Novak was the most complete, all-surface player ever. But Novak has always been a bit of a jack of all trades, specialist of none (not a bad thing at all). So would he have gotten any of the grand slams in 2006 or 07? That period was dominated by Fed's and...

    Djokovic beat Rafa and Roger...

    You can definitely sense them having to suppress tears as they feign a smile.
