Fair enough. I think it'll be tough for one of the big 3 of this era to really separate themselves at this point but we'll see.

Nadal just needs 2 more slims ;)

On the other hand Nadal had fewer bad seasons than Roger and Novak. Should I prove it? Do you need data for it?

All these "IF's" and "what if's" mean nothing! No one cares what could have been! Fedal may be at the top of everyone's list in the tennis intelligentsia, but Djokovic has made his mark even if he doesn't win another title! The insecurity shows with the blather about "IF's!" Few outside of Fedal fans GAF! I'm over them after all this hub-bub! :laughing:

and If Federer were Djokovic age, the Serb would retire slamless!

At least Nadal will always have clay.
If hard court and grass didn't exist, Federer and Djokovic would be like Wawrinka picking up the odd slam when no one is looking. Don't forget that hard court is the new commer in tennis.

It's fine, calm down.
Maybe no streaks, but some nice periods of big title hauls.
That 2008-2009 period was sweet.

Dont you think that then Djokovic and Federer would based their games for clay surface and Nadal wouldnt be best clay player for sure.

At the end of the day, Nadal's slam count points towards his combined skills on HC/Grass/Clay being above that of Djokovic's. The "not good enough on HC/Grass" argument is just an nuanced form of cherry-picking.
From 22 slams, 14 were on clay.. He didn't won WB over a decade and AO over a decade gap between titles.. How is that better than Novak?

You know what. We have to say it more loudly. Nadal doesn't belong in the goat conversation. These above stats, GOATs are like this.

Even if you go to Wikipedia and see most weeks by decade, you see Connors then Lendl Sampras Federer and Djokovic.

If you see ATP finals, you see McEnroe Becker Lendl Sampras Federer and Djokovic.

Nadal is not there guys. Let's fedfans and nolefams be honest for once. Nadal is king of clay, God of clay, whatever. Let's strip his importance in GOAT conversation.
