If the Big 3 win additional slams, where would it mean the most?

Rank in order which slams would be the most important to win again for each player and for their legacies...

Federer:

1) FO: A 2nd FO would mean having a DCGS and that would be huge. Also he hasn't won it in a long time.
2) USO: A 6th USO would give him the new record breaking the tie with Sampras and Connors. Also he hasn't won it in a long time.
3) W: A 9th W would extend his own record and would erase the bad memory from 2019.
4) AO: A 7th AO would be great but nothing special since Djokovic would still own the record.

Nadal:

1) AO: A 2nd AO would mean having a DCGS and that would be huge. Also he hasn't won it in a long time.
2) W: A 3rd W would be huge for Nadal and it would be redemption for all those early losses between 2012-2017. Also he hasn't won it in a long time.
3) USO: A 5th USO would be huge for Nadal as it would tie him with all-time record.
4) FO: He has plenty, but a record extending 14th would make him tie all of the career slams of Sampras.

Djokovic:

1) FO: A 2nd FO would mean having a DCGS and that would be huge. He also won the other slams more recently.
2) USO: A 4th USO would make him look more credible as the hardcourt GOAT.
3) W: A 6th W would be break the tie with Borg and will be special to him.
4) AO: A 9th AO would extend his own record there and make it even harder to break, but less meaningful than the others.

For all 3 players I think the DCGS would mean most but I'm not sure if everyone thinks that way. Do you agree with this order of importance? :unsure:
 

The_Order

G.O.A.T.
Nadal:

1) WIM - 3 slams on each surface
2) AO - DCGS
3) US - Ties the record for most titles
4) RG - Sampras' total at the one major

Djokovic:

1) RG - Needs another clay slam to boost his creds
2) WIM - Gives him a chance to catch Fed's record
3) US - Needs to win more here to consolidate his HC legacy
4) AO - Already got the record there

Federer:

1) RG - Needs another clay slam to boost his creds
2) US - Stand alone titles leader
3) WIM - His favourite slam, would love to reclaim the throne one more time
4) AO - Pretty much has the least value to him

Great list...

We agree about Federer, we chose the same order.

I didn't think about the 3 slams on each surface for Nadal with a W win, interesting.

As for Djokovic I think he's too far from Federer's record at W, he has zero chance IMO.

again you make error of djokovic being big 3? I'm starting to think you really think he's big 3

So now the OP decides that Djokovic is considered worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as Federer and Nadal?

There was I thinking that Fedal were the only two players that matter from here on in. :unsure:

There's the big 2 Fedal who are GOATs. There's the big 3 which includes the next player Djokovic. And there's the big 4 which also includes Murray. This thread isn't about who is GOAT so I can use the term big 3 or big 4. :cool:
 
I disagree with USO and WI. For Djokovic I will take more Wimbledons over US Opens any time. Also When Djokovic had the chance for DCGS before RG finals then DCGS wasn't considered special.
