Brooksby is gonna be the best American player for the next 5 years. Book it. He gets some serving coach and he’s a top tenner. Florian Mayer’s groundstrokes, Murray’s movement and Hewitt’s attitude.

The goat of grinding, Federer is the real goat and I'm a Nadal fan.
No man. Fed's NOT even close to being the GOAT. Novak is. This guy NEVER loses in a 5 set match. Since 2018 how many times has he lost in a full 5 set match he competed in?
Novak is FAR FAR ahead of Federer and of Nadal as well. This is not hard. It's pretty plain. No matter who you support.
In 32 years of watching tennis, I've NEVER seen any other player who ALWAYS wins in BO5 and always manages to find solutions and outlast and outcompete his opponent. What else is needed to become GOAT?

I don't know if I'm supposed to take you seriously or not.
 
Berretini/Zed/Med back to back to backk is gonna be a big challenge. I think its gonna be key someone softens med/zed up and push them and takes some wind out of their sales. Djokovic got through it at the French a tougher draw but his level is NOT what it was at the French. Wimbledon was kind a fortunate easy draw for him.

Novak's stats are inflated. He wins a lot of slams now when Nadal and Federer are older and not that much of a factor and the next genners don't take over as they should. This transition period means Novak wins freebie slams left and right.

I'm serious. Please tell me with a straight face of a case for Fed or Nadal over Novak. There is no case.
Whether you are a fan or not, it's plain. Novak is JUST BETTER. A better competitor, a better athlete and a better Tennis player. PERIOD.
Nope not even close. Peak 2003 Fed beats ANY version of Novak and makes it look easy.

More money in his bank account.

Man, we all know Novak is the GOAT but no need for the hyperboles...

Despite the fitness issues, I think this is a great showing by Brooksby. He's hardly ever played best of fives and he's coming off a 5-setter before playing Djoker.

The people who watched one set snd said Novak can’t win the US Open you people don’t know Jack about sport. The first set was an aberration
I don’t think anybody honestly believed that charade was gonna last. It was just fun at the time

Peak this, peak that - they are all HYPOTHETICALS. It's like saying Senna was the best in Formula1 or Pele is the best in football.
FACT: Novak has dominated Fed and Nadal in H2H. He has a winning record over them.
FACT: Novak has dominated the much younger gen and is going to win CYGS. He has DECISIVELY beaten guys 10-15 yrs younger with winning h2h vs ALL.
FACT: Novak will have the most slams.
Finally - he's not even done yet. Case closed.

The world doesn't live in hypotheticals. Peak Fed is gone and so is peak Nadal. Meanwhile, Novak is the GOAT. Even most tennis experts say that now.

I'm a Djokovic fan. I just think you're too hyperbolic.
