Equaling no. of ATP Finals win - end of this year

As a Federer fan, I now want Nadal to save tennis. By winning Canada, USO and finally YEC to snatch YE#1 and stay there for a year, then retire after RG2020 having equalled the slam total.

He can go down as the co-GOAT with Fed, with nextgen finally catching up and winning Wimbledon 2020 with the big 3 pushed out for good.

As a Djokovic fan I hate this kind of thread.

When Nole won RG 2016 all that was said was that we would win everything. Over the next months and what came was a desert.

The right thing is to focus on the next championship and be satisfied with what you have achieved so far.

Good post

We are in a similar position to then. Nothing new, old Fed can’t get the job done vs Djokovic at slams and chokes, leaving his slam total vulnerable.

We’ve learned nothing new, other than Fed can play great at this age too.

if he wins Cincy, does that give him a double Golden Masters?
I guess? But then again, what does that even mean and why does it even matter? LOL I mean one golden masters i get it! But what is the significance of having won each of 9 masters titles at least twice in one's career?! The same thing about the so called - "double career grand slam" bullcrap...are people trying to push some kind of alternate narrative or something, where these mostly trivial things would matter?!...LMAO Why its so important to have won each of the big title at least twice?! In my book once you have done it - its enough for your legacy! It is especially most apparent in Big-3 case, each of them having won gazzilion of big titles on top of that, especially Djokovic, who on top of everything also managed to win all 9 different masters tournaments in his career! Okay, so there are only 2 people, who achieved double career slam in tennis history (at least in men's tour!) and one of them is - Roy Emerson??! LOL I mean Rod Laver is legit, but Roy Freaking Emerson man?! C'mmon now...

He is trolling. He always does it if you read his posts.
I’m not trolling, that post was tongue in cheek but the message behind it was genuine.

Do I think it’s good for tennis that a guy who’s an efficient baseline grinder, plays the same style of tennis since about age 26 and is still winning vs the next 2-3 gens playing that same style? No. I don’t want to see this guy eclipse the slam record in his 30s... the slam record that was earned playing unbelievable all court attacking tennis vs contemporaries.

That’s just my view.

He'll get the 6th YE & overall weeks. I mean it's about 98.5% for this year's YE & 93% for overall weeks.

With the way Fed's been playing though if he managed to better himself at USO, win Shanghai & WTF he might have a chance at #1 by winning AO next year. But would need a Novak collapse.

LOL, Doctor! The Federer fans are living through a nightmare. They cheered Djokovic to stop Nadal catching Federer and now they're doing the opposite. Big problem either way because both of them are catching Federer :)

Contemporaries? Like who .... Roddick and Hewitt?

Djokovic doesn't deserve it any less than Federer. Your fan bias is clouding your judgement

Those. Nalbandian, Davydenko, Young Nadal on clay/grass, Young Djokovic on HC, Old Agassi on HC, Safin etc. Plenty of great players.

Federer has the higher peak than Djokovic. Djokovic will probably end up with better longevity and consistency due to non existent 2-3 gens ahead of him. Which may win him the slam record.

Maybe I'm a homer but I truly believe that Rafa can beat Nole in NY.
If he gets to his normal level, yes sure why not? 2013 beast Nadal will do, anything less... and it's over.

If this is the final, I am rooting for the Bull to save Championship points and win :censored::whistle::whistle::whistle:

Ok. Djokovic might not break it. He will need 5 more which will not be easy to get.

That was an excellent prediction
