Federer = 8 slams, 11 total
  1. Wimbledon 2004
  2. USO 2004 *
  3. Wimbledon 2005
  4. USO 2005 *
  5. USO 2006
  6. USO 2007
  7. Wimbledon 2012
  8. AO 2017 *
Nadal = 7 slams, 7 total
  1. FO 2007
  2. Wimbledon 2008
  3. AO 2009
  4. FO 2011
  5. USO 2013
  6. FO 2017
  7. USO 2017
Djokovic = 10 slams, 11 total
  1. AO 2008
  2. AO 2011
  3. Wimbledon 2011
  4. USO 2011 *
  5. AO 2012
  6. Wimbledon 2014
  7. Wimbledon 2015
  8. USO 2015
  9. AO 2016
  10. Wimbledon 2018

* The bolded are runs where the winner had to beat multiple former champs in their draw.

So Djokovic with the most wins followed by Federer and Nadal just behind. Federer however has had three slam runs where he had to beat multiple former champs compared to one for Djokovic and none for Nadal.

Of course this completely misses how players played on the day but who cares when you have cherry picked statistics?

Expect Lew to soon bombard you with the "objective and real" stats!

There are good stats. Something that shows without a shadow of a doubt that weak-era mug Federer faced many more past champions than strong-era juggernaut Nadal in his slam wins? :eek: My good friend Lew, cherrypicker extraordinaire, wholeheartedly approves of this thread. :p

I was going to say that I hope I haven't botched it by making a mistake but if I have then these stats would truly be Lew'esque.

Dumb metric

Fed would score better if he'd lost to Roddick in '03
He is just being sarcastic at the all the cherrypicking from posters like Lew.

Like win/loss between Big3 which makes Federers AO16 look weaker than Nadals, because Nadal lost to a mug R1, while Federer lost to peak Djoker in the final. Nadal gets 0-0, Federer 0-1.

Depends how much stock you put in beating multiple former champs no?



You're right, fixed it.
Are all slams equal?? Is djokovics 13 slams better than federers 156 or however many he has I have lost count. These are universal questions like why are we here?
