Still 20-20...what now?

WTF is literally meaningless in GOAT debates. I have not a clue how many Borg Mcenroe and Connors have. Literally never mentioned by anyone.
I think with the big 3 all winning so many slams, other factors become more important than they historically have been.

And yes being completely impotent on indoor HC your entire career is an enormous hole in your candidacy for GOAThood.

Nadal is the only one of the 3 with a hole like that so he definitely needs to compensate for it somehow.

If Nadal gets to 21 and ends up the slam record no way Joker will surpass him. Rafas pet slam isnt in danger like Jokers is.

Nadal crushing Fed record is inevitable. 2-3 more FO is doable.

Federer other records will still put a fight in GOAT arguement.

Wonder how many considers Margaret Court greater than Serena Williams. Court won majority of her slams in a weak AO field.

We celebrate because Djoko is the youngest of the 3 (on top of being the most versatile, talented, fit and mentally strong) and he is the most likely to get the absolute slam record.
Novak also has #1 record, most tier 1 titles overall, most dominant season, 2 career grand slams, the Nole slam and is the only male player to have won every tier 1 title once AND the only one to have won every tier 1 title multiple times. It's over for Fedal. Check and mate.

You're just a glory hunter, so called ex Nadal fan. If Nadal wins the next 4 slams and Djokovic doesn't win anything again I bet you'll switch sides again.

Djokovic fans are just glory hunters and the only thing they like about him is that he wins. They also take great pride in learning a new word, "cope"
This makes no sense. If we were glory hunters, wouldn't we have rooted for Federer (or Nadal) all these years?

If you've started watching tennis in 2011 when Djokovic was world no 1 it makes sense to root for him. Of course no one anticipated Djokovic to reach 20 slams. Not talking about you specifically, Djokovic fans in general.
