Just to compare for a minute, Fed at 32-33

Lost 6-7, 3-6, 4-6 to Robredo USO
Lost 6-7, 3-6, 3-6 to Nadal AO
Lost 7-6, 6-7, 2-6, 6-4, 3-6 to Gulbis FO
Lost 3-6, 4-6, 4-6 to Cilic

All before Final and less age disparity while being younger. #NEVERFORGET

And I can't believe as a Fed fan since freaking 01 I need to clarify this for the trolls.
 
You mean choking at double match point ON SERVE to the same guy 8 years later at a late stage in a Slam? Or having done it 8 years older somehow better?
Either way, quite a few of Djokovic's matches hang from a thread. He has been quite lucky in that regard.

Didn't Federer lose to Tsonga at his pet slam up 2-0 at age 29?
Didn't Djokovic lose to clay novice Wawrinka in his best year?

If you want the comparison at the same age Fed’s equivalent season is 2015. And while absent Novak he would have probably won WB and the USO that year he lost to Seppi at the AO

And Nadal had 6 slams at the same age Djokovic had only achieved 1, competing against prime Federer and not washed out old man Fed.

Same Wawrinka that made FO Final two years later? Didn't Federer lose to 20 year old Nadal his best year after winning first set 6-1? Or was his best year the previous season choking MPs to Safin And losing to 19 year old Nadal?

Technically Fed turned 34 only for that USO and choked several BPs to Novak in the final, then proceeded to get beaten badly for a 4 setter to Novak at AO, skipped the French and choked to Raonic on grass before tearing his meniscus.

Old man Fed that vultured 3 Slams in Novak's lul period due to persistent elbow issues and coaching drama? Or wasn't he good enough to beat Nadal, Wawrinka and Cilic those years? Oh wait he was younger when playing Novak.....sorry how do arguments work for you?

Thats was in the year 2013 when he was dealing with a prolonging back injury.

Read put the stats of 2014-15 when he lost 3 slam final and few semis to a peak djokovic in 4-5 setters

It was tsonga who was Djokovic first slam nemisis in a Final. Istomin was a nobody before that match.

Dumbsters like you don't understand that djokovic vultured 10 slams since 2014 when atleast two of Nadal,Murray and Federer were injured every years.

Djokovic faced the weakest era of pro tennis in past 2-3 years

Isn't Nadal an ATG and clay GOAT? Stan? LOL

Federer did not have Novak's incredible consistency in his 30s. The lower percentage style of tennis will see to that. His top level is at LEAST equal, and I'd say that's being generous. Judging by how tough a time he tends to have with the likes of Medvedev and Zverev I'd say 2015 Djokovic would destroy this poor guy.

Poor 29-year-old Toekovic flushed again the very next year by Slaminal after another cake draw to fall to 2-5 in USO finals. Thanks much to his gifts, the combined USO finals records for his four conquerors is 11-5 while he is now 3-6 on Championship Sunday/Monday. No wonder he loses it on Ashe so frequently and almost did it again yesterday before destroying another $250 racquet and $60 string job. What a looser!
