Comparing BIG3

When Murray is involved in the discussion: Olympics golds are irrelevant and it's a glorified exho.
When Nadal is involved in the discussion: Important Olympic gold win, comparable to the actual GOAT's or he might look massively inferior.

Facts are that Djokovic is the GOAT and Federer is a distant second and Nadal an even more distant third.

In tribute to our departed friend. Slay.

The fact Fed is 40, has an "inferior" stroke (one handed backhand) and can still whoop their asses (mostly Nadal) shows he's the GOAT

Ha, I like that you emphasize the Olympics so much even if I don’t agree (slams >> the rest). It’s a nice change of pace from the Fedovic fans who over-emphasize the WTF mostly to troll us Nadal fans.
Well I just go of what the players say and they all equates Olympics with Slams and Zverev said he slept withr is Gold medal. I assume he is joking but still I have not heard him been asked about world tout finals at over events.
I don't think here is any doubt that of the three goat contenders Nadal probably will have the most happy off season as thigs look good for him right now. Djokovic fails to win Australia and we as back to where we were a few months ago . Something tells me this time Nadal will be much more formidable on the clay .

With all due respect to him as an injured person that plays tennis, he is third as of some time ago, no way around it.
Nadal is definetly too do on men's side for now. Record majors plus Olympic gold. 2021 turned out well for Nadal considering he was injured all season. Personally I cannot see Djokovic winning in Australia as that will be Medvedev or zverev. He won't eat best Nadal in Paris again if Nadal is fit so it looks a good bet on it ending 21-20-20 in Nadals favour.

Djokovic in a stunning position. For a while he only lacked Slams but caught up now, 2021 went in a blink of an eye.

Give me Torino to make that whole column (minus lolympics) green. :p

What about multiple slam winning seasons also?

Or seasons with three slam wins?
sure, but multiple slams a season has been done multiple times, and Laver has the record of 4.

Rafa winning at least a major 10 years in a row is a stand alone record.

Just because it has been done multiple times doesn't mean it should not be shown. You tell me, who else has at least three three slam winning seasons except Federer and Djokovic? That is 9 slams over three seasons.

Heck we are showing three guys who have won 20 slams each, so even that has been done multiple times, yet it is not any less impressive.

Think of it like this, if all three players have 20 slams, and one has been winning one at least ten years in a row, as incredible and amazing as that is, then it is extremely likely that the others must have had more multiple slam seasons, in other words more dominant seasons to make up the numbers. So it goes both ways really.
