    When this guy is at his 80%, he cleans everyone off the court

    If true, he breaks the world record in missed opportunity...more so considering he faced a lost generation, a yet-to-breakout next generation, a past-prime Federer, and a past-peak Nadal.

    If Novak and Nadal dominate in 2020, one of them will reach 20

    I'm talking about the last 3 years. Federer and Nadal won the first six slams, and Djokovic and Nadal won the last six slams. That's what separates Rafa: he won a slam each year, and it's why he's three over Nole, and within one of Roger.

    If Novak and Nadal dominate in 2020, one of them will reach 20

    LOL at Djokovic fans still trying to connect Nadal and Djokovic at the hip. Federer, Nadal, and Djokovic have won the last 12 slams. Federer/Nadal won the first 6, and Djokovic/Nadal won the last six. The common factor is Nadal.

    Who is the Most Overrated Multi Slam Winner? (No ATG Players)

    Wawrinka. He's never been ranked in the top-2, never won the WTF, and has won a Masters title just once. But for some unknown reason, Djokovic goes into *itch-mode against him at slams, so Stan has served a useful purpose. ;)

    Roger Federer - KING of heartbreaking losses. Every year toughest loss from 2000.

    "Heartbreaking" losses (at the time of the loss. Not in hindsight): 2000 - 2005: None 2006: Rome 2007: - Miami (This was a 'WTF' loss) 2008: Wimbledon 2009: Australian Open 2010: None 2011: US Open 2012: None 2013: Wimbledon 2014: Wimbledon 2015: Wimbledon 2016: Wimbledon 2017: None 2018...

    A "bitter" thread

    At the end of 2014 Nole had won 7 slams. I'm saying that number should be (at least) ten...I'm more thinking 11-12 titles.

    A "bitter" thread

    Peak Djokovic winning only one slam for 3 consecutive seasons is definitely a "tough period". He should have ended 2014 with at least 10 slam titles.

    How will different fan bases of the Big Three vote on this?

    I'd vote yes if Federer had 3-4 less slams than Djokovic and Nadal.

    Crazy Stat: From AO 2010 to RG 2014 Nadal made 12 GS finals and Murray 6 GS finals, yet they haven’t met in any of them

    From 2008 - 2016 (the 'Big-4' era), Nadal and Murray made it to 26 slam finals (Nadal or Murray was in all 4 slam finals in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013) without a single meeting. Crazy.

    If you took one Slam title away from each of the Big 3 member, which one would most hurt their legacy?

    Federer USO 2008 - He wouldn't be tied for most USO titles in the open era, wouldn't have 5 consecutive wins at 2 different slams, wouldn't have 8 consecutive years with a slam title, and would have a slam final loss to Murray. Nadal Wimbledon 2010 - He wouldn't have a 3-slam year, would have a...

    Federer fans what does Nadal need to do for him to pass Federer in terms of greatness in your eyes?

    Greatness is about diversity. If Federer stays at 8-6-5-1, I think Nadal having any of the below would give him the greater slam record: 12-4-4-2, 12-4-3-3, 12-6-4-1, 13-5-3-2, 16-4-4-1.

    The true test of versatility..

    Stop including 2010. Djokovic didn't reach his peak until 2011. Since that time, Rafa hasn't won the AO or Wimbledon. Peak Nadal? Right. Peak Djokovic won his AO titles beating up his AO pigeon Murray, and his Wimbledon titles beating up Federer (though that didn't first happen until...

    Why Nadal good in Laver Cup but not in WTF

    Open Era slam champions with 8 titles: Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Sampras, Borg, Connors, Lendl, Agassi. Those who have also won the WTF/YEC: Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Sampras, Borg, Connors, Lendl, Agassi.

    7-1-5-3-5 vs 1-12-2-4-0

    Winning 6 titles at a slam is an achievement. Winning 6 titles at two slams is a separate achievement. Winning 5 titles at two slams is an achievement. Winning 5 titles at three slams is a separate achievement. Saying they are all based on one thing is ridiculous. This thread isn't about total...

    When Fed's Slam record will be TRULY safe?

    I don't agree the other two "are better", but agree it's Federer's fault that Rafa is within one of his slam record.

    The true test of versatility..

    What I'm acknowledging is that peak Federer faced peak Rafa, and peak Djokovic didn't face peak Federer or Nadal. By the time Nole reached hit peak, it had been 8 years since Roger started consistently winning slams, and 6 years since Rafa. It's telling that Federer last beat Nole at a slam 9...

    The true test of versatility..

    Nadal burst onto the scene in 2005. He was a 2-time Roland Garros champion, Wimbledon finalist, and 2-time YE#2 by the end of 2006. You want to argue that Federer won 4 of his slams before Rafa? Fine. To add, Nadal was a 5-time RG champion, 2-time Wimbledon champion, Australian Open champion...

    Federer 'won't be destroyed' if Nadal beats his grand slam record

    I don't think Federer will be destroyed, but definitely disappointed in himself. No way should he have won only two Wimbledon titles this weak decade.

    7-1-5-3-5 vs 1-12-2-4-0

    It's quite simple. Roger won at least 8 titles at one slam. 8X1 Roger won at least 6 titles at two slams. 6X2 Roger won at least 5 titles at three slams. 5X3 Roger won at least 1 title at four slams. 1X4

    7-1-5-3-5 vs 1-12-2-4-0

    That's your opinion. Lets allow math to give us a definitive answer to who has the best distribution: Federer: 8X1, 6X2, 5X3, 1X4 Nadal: 12X1, 4X2, 2X3, 1X4 Djokovic: 7X1, 5X2, 3X3, 1X4 Distribution Score: Federer: 39 Nadal: 30 Djokovic: 30

    7-1-5-3-5 vs 1-12-2-4-0

    Distribution definitely matters. Winning many titles at different slam tournaments is definitely a GOAT factor. That said, Rafa won his best slam 12 times vs Nole's seven; Nole won his 2nd best slam 5 times vs Rafa's four; Nole won his 3rd best slam 3 times vs Rafa's two. Djokovic really doesn't...

    The true test of versatility..

    No relevance. You said Federer is lucky to win half his slams before Nadal and Djokovic's arrival, so Nadal is lucky to win half his slams before Djokovic's arrival, no? If not, please explain...more so considering that since Nole arrived, Rafa hasn't won the Australian Open or Wimbledon.

    The true test of versatility..

    Nadal won 9 of his majors before 2011... Nadal is lucky he was able to vacuum up nearly half of his majors before Djokovic's arrival.

    The true test of versatility..

    The OP's point would be the same even if Federer had 15 Wimbledons.

    The true test of versatility..

    Baghdatis was born in 1985. He wasn't Roger's contemporary, but a NextGen. And he was a strong NextGen (one of many during Federer's peak/prime years)...not only making the 06 AO final, but the 06 Wimbledon semifinal. He simply didn't develop into a strong contemporary for Nadal and Djokovic, so...

    The Big 3 will be MOTIVATED at the slams next year.

    I suggest you never open a MichaelNadal thread.

    The Big 3 will be MOTIVATED at the slams next year.

    The NextGens will be equally motivated, and perhaps even the LostGens. Surely they must feel embarrassed for not winning a slam an entire decade.

    Remember: 4 sets in 6 tries, +15 years

    Do you two really want to argue with someone who refers to then 5-time slam finalist/3-time slam champion/9-time Masters champion Nadal as "baby Rafa"?

    Remember: 4 sets in 6 tries, +15 years

    Every time Djokovic fans try to ride on Nadal's coattails, it makes them look pathetic. Nadal is the player who is within one of Federer's slam count. Nole is still far down the mountain looking up.

    When will Djokodal fans fight against each other?

    From 2005 - 2010 Nadal won 9 slams, and stopped Federer from winning six. With Djokovic, had he not went awol for 3 years after winning his first slam in 2008, and had assisted Nadal in stopping Federer from winning slams (08 USO; 09 RG; 2010 AO), the current slam race would be totally different.
