Guess they all have something. Rafa has a record that will stand the test of time, Rog has 5+ at three different ones and the most Wimbledons, and Nole has multiple titles at every slam. Very hard to say. At this point, it's a veeeery slight edge to Djoko's slam division for me I suppose. Most titles at AO, third most titles at Wimby, and managing two RG titles in Nadal's era is just too good. But as you said, it'll be a moot question in six weeks' time, when Djoko gets his 21st.

They're all fabulous GS totals and achievements, but Roger's for me because he has more Wimbledon and US Open. He won each 5 times in a row as well.
Rafa's 13 French Open is the standout at one event though. Monumental.

In the near future, Novak. In the far future, Nadal. Nadal's RG record will never be beaten. All of Novak's records aren't as unbreakable.
9 AO is pretty safe IMO we won’t see players like these again and if a player won the AO at 22 he would have to win it straight to 32 to break it.
Nadals is untouchable

Eh. Say the age of competitiveness goes from 18-30 (where you'd need to win 10/13 events) to 17-40 (where you need to win 10/24) due to medical technology. It's not hugely likely, but it's not unthinkable. Give it a few decades, and 10 AOs might be in sight for someone. Not soon, but eventually.

Djokovic is also not finished yet at Australia too. 9 will be tough to catch and if he adds a couple more than I think 11 will be a massive mountain to climb for anyone.

I’m not saying it can’t happen and yes I understand a lot of players skipped it during history but before Djokovic and Federer the most titles there was 4. Djokovic has 9 AO, Nadal has 13 RG. Federer has 8 W and Federer has 5 USO. These are all stand alone or joint records since the open era what the big 3 does will never happen again so I will say 9 is safe.
If he adds a 10th It’s defiantly safe

Maybe, and he might do it. Even then 13 is harder to hit than 11, but maybe at that point specializing on clay would give better returns than the more neutral AO surface, but I'll reassess if Novak makes 11 AOs. My answer is dependent on this moment in time.

2 of each slam for me.
Close second is Fed cuz he won each title 5 times at least.
Close third is Nadal because he's such a freak at one slam.

Tough question and we see fan bias here. I'm glad I'm a fan of the best player though so I'm not being biased when I answer this question.

All I know is that if given the choice I wouldn't want to travel all the way to *beep* Australia, and spend a few weeks of my life under threat of being murdered by every little bug I came into contact with, and only have 1 title to show for it.
