Possibly you are right, but the way it is looking, with Djokovic likely having more weeks at number one, more year end number ones, and a good chance of most slams, he will end up as GOAT. I think many will put him above Nadal, should he win this USO, because he will more than likely equal Sampras with six year end number ones and massive amount more weeks, and with the AO coming after that, he will be in pole position to make the assault on the big prize, toppling the guy at the top, Federer. It is likely that even if Nadal gets more slams than Federer, he won't ever get to be the top guy, because of the other metrics that will pass from Federer to Djokovic.Surely, but i think he was talking about weeks no1, not slams... Maybe i am wrong... And i wrote that record is inevitable to be broken, not slams... About slams its over 50% chance, even bookies say so...
Djokovic is challenging Federer for slams, weeks at number one, most year ending number ones - the three things that made Sampras the guy first, the three things Federer targeted from him, and now Djokovic is targeting from Federer.
