2004-07 Federer will have the same career as Dimitrov if he played in 2014 onwards

disagree

he'd be below dimitrov, he'd be a journeyman playing challengers to boost his rank to help him qualify for masters 1000

it's just the natural evolution of the game, facts are facts
I disagree with you. I think that OP is spot on with his/her estimate.

You said the truth. Plato is dear to me, but dearer still is truth. You might have problems with some Federer fans for opening such thread, but you are right.
Federer beat Djokovic at Roland Garros 2011 and Wimbledon 2012, which means Djokovic never dominated Federer at Wimbledon or Roland Garros when Federer was younger than 32. Dimitrov has never defeated Djokovic in a Grand Slam match.

even if djokovic would win RG 2011, it hardly can be considered as domination because it's only one match

nothing wrong with being a journeyman, most aspiring pro players don't even crack the top 100 let alone travel and see the wonders of the world!

i know you sympathize with fed but sometimes the truth is a necessary medicine

not to mention it's supported by the latest studies:

(taken from Lew I and Lew II, 2019, who based their work on Gore et al., 2018)
and the verdict is in!

fed fans in ruins!

sometimes the truth can be so bitter...

PS: i'll try and find another study by Gore et al. (circa 1892) demonstrating the clear evolutionary progression of the game of tennis

fascinating stuff

If Fed is really that much of a fraud, then Djokovic of 2011- present would have won 16 slams in 04-07.

He would get disqualified. Because he won't lose a single set. Baby Nadal of 2005-07 who hadn't learn to hit a FH and was just a run of the mill grinder will be only one who wins more than 3 games in a set against him.

Thank God he got better and peaked in 2014-15 else his previous versions won't even get to a slam final in this strong era.
Thank God he's the GOAT and the fans of his rival fan bases introduce endless attacking threads about him. Yet he sits atop the heap and has for 10 years now. Obviously that deeply stings fans of all the lesser players. There's hard work and then.... there's genius. :p
