And he had 6 out of 9 m1000 events on his best surface and half the majors on his best surface his whole career. I am starting to question if he is 3rd of all time tbh. I would argue pethaps Laver Borg and Sampras ahead of himEven then, he had 1 big season where he was the top dog (2011) and otherwise had to wait until his 28 year old season to start dominating and building up slams. Basically he came out of the strong era (ended after 2013) with 6 slams. Even in the first weak era year (2014), Djokovic managed to lose to Wawrinka and Nishikori in slams and barely scraped past a well past his prime Federer at Wimbledon. Djokovic had to wait until his main rivals in terms of athletic peak were Gen useless clowns and NextGen babies before he could dominate and won 2/3 of his slams in that environment.
