Well Djokovic was just winning everything on every surface in 2011 but he still lost to Federer and to Murray in that stretch from AO to USO. Federer didn't quite dominate like that in that stretch and lost matches to guys outside the top 10 that year, especially on clay, but based on their poor record against Federer and their overall results that year, I wouldn't call that a very strong top 10.
Or maybe Federer just raised his level against the top 10, while still being inconsistent in the early rounds of tournaments. There isca reason why he went through 24 straight finals undefeated.

I hate the logic that for the competition to be strong, a player has to lose more.

By that logic Djokovic's 2011 shouldn't be strong since he went 41 matches undefeated and was 10-1 against Fedal.

Nah because we know Fedal are monsters, so his record against them in the year is especially impressive. Nobody of such calibre was there to challenge Federer in 2004. Easy pickings in the midst of the weakest era in sports history.

Now I know you're joking.

And Fed wasn't the same monster in 2011 overall.

OK, so this is a little game, where you personally decide if something is weak or strong. Just go down the list, and decide whether you feel it is weak or strong. For instance, is a specific season weak or strong, a specific slam weak or strong, a specific rivalry weak or strong, a specific event weak or strong. We will start at 2003, since that is the start of the modern era - The rise of Federer.

It's more than that. Safin lost in the 1st round of Wimby and US Open, Moya didn't do anything in the majors that year except for RG QF, etc. It just wasn't a considerably strong year in my eyes but it's fine if anyone disagrees.

Go through their losses, it's really not that different. You're engaging in circular reasoning - when my player wins he was better than the strong competition, when your player wins the competition was weak.

Federer had pretty tough draws at all the majors in 2004, a lot of depth rather than top heaviness. He did lose to Henman as well who was a definite top 10 player that year if not right at that moment.

Definitely not a weak year imo.

I really don't have to reason with 2011 because we all know it was a very strong year because we can see the field, who they were and the level they were playing. There is no doubt there. 2004? There is doubt there. It has nothing to do with how many losses they have but how were they losing. A couple of those losses, like Cincinnati, Olympics or Miami, Federer only had because he was tired or feeling ill. He just blitzed through virtually every other tournament except clay.

I don’t get how anyone can say 2007 is weaker than 2008? If anything it’s stronger.
Let’s compare Federer to Nadal.

Fed 2007 competition:

Peaking González at AO
Peak Nadal on clay
Peak Nadal at Wimbledon
Young aggressive Djokovic at USO series (level comparable to his 2010/2013 finals)
Nalbandian indoors

Nadal 2008 competition:

AO: peaking Tsonga (L)
Prime Fed at Hamburg/MC... lots of choking in both...
Pathetic Fed at RG
Prime Fed at Wimbledon who made a good comeback but was timid first 2 sets and nowhere near Nadal’s 2007 level
USO: Well playing Murray (L)

What makes 2008 stronger? Fed clearly had it tougher at slams overall.

I will base this on a scale of 1-10

2003: Roddick, Federer, Ferrero, Coria, and Nalbandian were in great form. Agassi was still quite good. Hewitt and Safin were in bad form. score=6
2004: Federer, Roddick, Hewitt, Safin, Henman, Caroia, were in great form. Agassi was still quite good. score=7
2005: Federer, Nadal Roddick, Hewitt, Davydenko, Safin, and Nalbandian were in great form. Agassi was still quite good, as was Coria. Score=8
2006: Federer, Nadal, Davydenko, and Blake were in great form. Roddick was in good form, Hewitt and Safin stunk. Score=5
2007: Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Roddick, Davydenko, and Nalbandian were in great form. Murray was very good, Hewitt and Safin stunk. Score=8
2008: Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, and Murray were in great form, as was Davydenko, Roddick was good, as was Delpo. Score=8
2009: Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Muray, Delpo, Roddick, and Soderling were in great form......Score=9
2010: Federer, Nadal, Djokovic, Murray, Soderling, Berdych were in great form, Roddick Davydenko, Nalbandian, Safin all stunk... score=7
2011: Djoker, Nadal, Murray in great form, Fed was in very good form, Berdych in Tsonga towards peak, Delpo in bad form, Roddick washed up score=6
2012: Djoker, Murray in great form, Fed and Nadal very good, Berdych, Tsonga, Delpo close to peak, Ferrer towards peak...... score=7
2013: Nadal and Djoker in great form, as is Murray, Berdych, Stan, and Delpo towards peak, Federer in terrible form due to injures. score=7
2014: Djoker, Nadal, Stan, and Murray near peak, Federer very good, Raonic, Berdych, Cilic near peak, as was Ferrer.....strong year...score=9
2015: Djoker, Murray, Stan, Berdych near their peak, Fed is very good, Tsonga and Nishi still towards peak......good year.........score=7
2016: Djoker peak for half year, Murray at peak, Fed and Nadal missed at least half of the year, Stan, Nishi, Cilic near peak...weak year....score=5
2017: Nadal and Fed were very good, Djoker and Murray injured for a good chunk, Stan near peak for 6 months, Cilic near peak..weak year...score=5
2018: Djoker near peak for half of year, Fed was good for 3 months, Nadal good for 9 months, Murray MIA, Stan terrible, Cilic very good....weak year...score=5

That's my two cents.

2014 to me was tough. Federer came back strong with his new racket. Djoker was tough, Stan became a slam winner and because a true heavyweight this year, Murray was near peak for most of the year, Raonic splashed onto the scene. This year was extremely tough. And Nobody won more than 1 slam each, which shows strength.

2005 and 2008 battle it out for the next toughest. Nadal was a monster in 2005, along with being a slam winner. Hewitt and Safin were very tough, as was Roddick(These 3 gave 28-31 year old Sampras a very tough time; Safin and Hewitt destroyed Sampras in the USO finals in back to back years). Agassi was still very tough with his great ball-striking(similar to 2015-2016 Fed).

That's my 2 cents. Once again, none of this can be proven. Some matches are swaying my decision, like Safin taking out Federer in the 2005 AO semi, or Nadal taking out Fed at the 2008 Wimby final.

If you're saying that subjectively the field was weak, fine, there's nothing to argue about because it's all opinions. But him winning everything proves nothing. (Side note - he won Hamburg and his other clay losses were to top dirtballers)

How is 2004 a weak year? Federer went 18-0 against top 10 players, sure, but he pretty much always found another gear back then against those guys. This was the Federer that was uber focused, played big points very well, and was able to save 73% of all break points that he faced. Not to mention he had two of his toughest slam draws in 2004.

2005 wasn't weak either. Tons of great matches that year with Federer vs. Safin, Nadal vs. Coria, Nadal winning that indoor title, thrillers at the USO, Federer vs. Agassi (their Miami match was good despite it ending in straights), and the Federer vs. Nalbandian final was solid too despite Federer being injured.

What makes 2008 stronger? Fed clearly had it tougher at slams overall.

I think a lot of people whose agenda does not revolve around acknowledging Fed's greatness simply refuse to accept that the fact that he had mono might have marginally affected his performance negatively(enough so that a steadilly improving Rafa would catch him), and instead they blindly conclude that Fed's level was at least as high in 2008 as in 2007, again simply because it's what suits their own agenda.

There's the problem. If the Top 10 doesn't win enough, it's a weak era because no one is dominating the tour and even journeymen can take out seasoned players. If one player destroys the rest of the tour, it's weak because there is no competition.

The only way to have a strong era, it seems, is to have a top 10 or top 5 that destroy the rest of the tour, but among themselves are pretty even. Such a thing happened in the consensus for "Strong" for most people: 2012.

So the way I would decide if a slam or year is strong is by looking at how many players justified their seeding, and by how much. For instance, if the top 8 seeds all make the quarterfinals, we can assume that is a strong slam. No one has an easy draw. However, if only seed 5 makes the quarterfinals, we can assume that slam is weak. If you'd like, I can make a spreadsheet on this.

Are you saying years without fed djokovic nadal and murray are stronger than ones without? Is that what you want us to reflect in our votes?

Don’t want you to reflect anything, vote how you like. But i’m specifically referring to those individuals that are screaming “weak” between 03 and 07, as if by default.

Of course there are exceptions to those posts, but most of the posters have been pretty transparent when it comes to which players they don’t like or respect...

2011- Strong
2012- Fantastic year. Very Strong
2013- Nadal's resurgence made it interesting during the North American Hard swing
2014

2016- All Weak pathetic years. from 2014-present. Not even worth commenting on really. No depth, Slow courts all every where and tennis played the same on essentially different colored surface.

Logic here is weak. You are equating having serious rivals at the top with rising guns who havent ever presented a serious challenge at slams. 3 guys have dominated the tour for well over a decade so how they are playing and the form they're in plus to a much smaller degree outside shot guys like Murray Wawrinka Delpotro Cilic Safin etc will effect how tough it is. But that's a much smaller part of how though it is.

Then when you look at "strong young guns" they have almost no impact on how tough it is , just in theory it makes things deeper but what difference does it make when they dont challenge for slams or even masters really. The only young "rising guns "really who have done so in the last 15 years were Fedalovic themselves! The others were just like whatever guys who werent serious threats to be all time greats for a variety of reasons.

So it's a flaw to give equal weight to the strength of the top guys that can actually threaten eachother and "rising guns"

It would be like giving equating a R2 easy slam opponent with a fellow all time great Final opponent to rate how tough one of Fedovical's slam winning draws was.

Even in this instance, maybe a lower ranked player can simply catch fire. Like Tsonga AO 2008 or Verdasco AO 2009. Or even Gonzo AO 2007, even though Gonzo was a top 10 player at the 2007 AO.

From 2005 to 2009 you had successful young players emerging like Rafa, Novak, Murray and Delpo. That's 4 players in just 5 years.

The best we got right now are Thiem and Zverev. Clearly there's a difference.

05-ok, due to Safin at AO and Nadal at RG, but Wimby/USO obviously very weak with Hewitt/Roddick/Great grandfather Agassi as the competition
06-ROFLMAO
