334 world records, 1 Billlion $ and iconic status for 2 decades.

Look no further, Fed is still the GOAT and shall be so until a proper successor from the next generation arrives and creates his own path to greatness.

He's also not broken "every record" in the book.

1. He has not won 110 tournaments to pass Connors
2. He has not won 3/4 slams 5+ each like Fed
3. He has not won 9 Wimbledon trophies to surpass Fed
4. He has not won 15 RG's to surpass Rafa
5. He's not won two different slams 5 times straight like Fed
6. He's not been in 10 consecutive men's Grand Slam finals like Fed
7. He's not been ranked #1 at at almost age 37 like Fed
8. He's won been ranked 237 consecutive weeks at #1 like Fed

And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Yep most accomplished that he got owned in his prime by a baby Nadal due to top spin to his BH, if he’s the most accomplished player surely his BH wouldn’t be breaking down ? No
You can have the H2H. Roddick fans can have his H2H over Nole too.



No player, I mean no player has ever owns the tour like Federer did in the history of tennis. That's GOAT materials.

The most dominant tennis player in his respective era is Roger Federer.

From 2004 - 2009, prime/peak Federer amazes us by winning a staggering 14 out of 24 slams !

He made 20 slam final appearances:
reaches 10 consecutive finals​
reaches 4 finals in a season 3 times​
won 3 out of 4 slams in a season 3 times​
reaches 23 out of 24 slam semifinals​

50 single titles

He accumulated 240 weeks at the top of the ATP rankings including an astonishing 237 consecutive weeks.
5 out of 6 years he ended the YE #1.

Prime Federer's dominance and consistency is off the charts !

Nadal, Nole, Borg or Sampras are great in their respective era, but they are in a debate for a distant second.

And yet could not win Rome and Monte Carlo. Definitely GOAT materials. LOL.

Not unfair, zealots like that poster from any big 3 player just by association make the whole fan base camp look plain ******** since they usually troll the forum in every single big 3 related thread

There are hardly any Federer fanatics here who are toxic, toxic in the sense spreading hate on Novak, won't find anyone, not even me, however I can pinpoints many posters from the Novak fanclub who spew a lot of venom on Federer daily, some of them are here to fight for Novak all day as if it is their life's mission and they have admitted that as well. It's posters like those who elicit biased responses from people.

Fedal fans in the past:

Slams and time at #1 are all that matter
Novak majors in minors
Novak will never even come close to catching up


Fedal fans today:

Nadal and Fed won Miss Congeniality awards
Don’t focus on slams (this one is particularly funny)
if, if, if (injuries, competition, etc..)


Sad to see such previously proud fanbases fall so hard o_Oo_O


edit: remember all those Nadal fans talking up the H2H against the other Big 3? Good times

It's funny how much different the TTW Fed fanbase is today than back in 2016.
 
That book of records is surely missing a few chapters. Really, it's a hyperbole meant to praise Novak's success and it should be taken as such. But of course, bringing down others is just too much fun and so we have another TTW battle of who can be the most disrespectful to the players they don't like.

I thought Rafa's injuries were all from rolling out of bed, nothing to do with the way he plays......

He means the following allowed him to break all records.

- A geriatric past his prime Federer was his main rival
- A past his prime reduced to a clay specialist Nadal was his other main rival
- Constantly injured and out of the game contemporaries like Murray, Delpo, Wawrinka
- Multiple younger generation of players the likes of Raonic, Nishikori, Raonic, Kyrgios etc. etc.
Since 2013 he vultured 15 slams the real weak era champ. What happened to the peak level from 2012-14 as he won only 3 out 12 slams he entered despite being in his prime.

His delusional fans cry foul of weak era....He is the weak era champ of his Generation
