Is Novak Djokovic the most talented player of all time? In other words, does he possess the best skill set? I am a Federer fan and feel he is the greatest “player” ever, due to his success in slams, time spent at #1, and amazing consistency and longevity. I also feel Federer is a better tactician, and structures points a bit better. However, I’m starting to believe Novak may be a bit more “skilled”, overall. In my opinion, he has the best return of serve ever, is the best athlete (some of the most incredible movement I’ve ever seen), best combination of defense and offense (better than Nadal), and quite possibly the best ground game overall (combining forehand and backhand). His serve may not be the best, but is certainly one of best and though his volleys may not compare to Rafter or Edberg, they are some of the best of his generation (as good Federer). I do think Roger has the greatest forehand of all time, maybe a little better serve when he’s on, but with everything else it seems Novak has the edge. Now I realize Roger can still beat Novak, and certainly has achieved a lot more. I also agree that Roger has improved … his backhand is quite possibly better than ever. I’m sure one could also argue that everything is relative … that he was as good as he needed to be in his prime but could have been even better. But based on what we’ve seen, and what we know today, does Novak possess slightly better tennis skill? Just curious ... would love to hear from other Federer fans in particular.
