Will Djokovic ever win a tournament 10 times?

He doesn't have that but he is the only one to win all four slams, hold all four at once, even, win all masters titles, (hasn't he won each one twice?) and win WTF.
So he has the better spread.

Student A didn't get a 10 grade in a subject. That student is exceptionally gifted, a prodigy in the subject, knowing actually more than any teacher in the country/worldwide. Can we say then that student A is better than student B? Of couse
Student A may be more knowledgeable but she's not a better student if she slacks off or doesn't study. The numbers are everything.

What I meant by that is, let's say, pretend, since I don't really know anything about it, that Einstein got a 10 in Physics and Maths every single year as a kid. But he wouldn't pass History. Can we say that he wasn't a good student just because of that?

Of course he's not a good student if he cannot pass any subject. You probably wanted to say - what if he doesn't get a 10, but only an 8 in History. Then we couldn't say that he's not a good student, but we could still say that he's not the best, depending on how the other students did in their exams.

But you're missing the point altogether, which is that this is a BS troll argument in the first place, of course, that the OP @USO is totally unhealthy obsessed with Djokovic and actually needs a good, big, hard, long hug that would cure that disorder.
 
Nadal: 13 FO, 11 Monte Carlo, 11 Barcelona.

Federer: 10 Halle, 10 Basel.

Djokovic: :unsure:

Can a player have a claim to being the goat without ever dominating any tournament like that? Not even one? :unsure:

I don’t think so. To be really called “great” you have to at least dominate a tournament by winning it 10 times. Djokovic fans will need to admit that he can never be the goat. :cry:
One thing's for sure, some people are trying hard to become GOAT of making pointless threads.

Yet more not-picking from an I-hate-this-one-player fan, cherry-picking one "weaker" stat so they can "dismiss" their entire career or make it seem much smaller.

"Federer has negative H2H vs Rafa and Djokovic at slams hence he is meaningless."

"Nadal won 5 HC slams compared to Fed/Djoko's 11 hence he is nothing".

So boring, predictable and childish. At least trolls should be funny when trolling. Make us laugh with you not at you. Be amusing, not just angry. Be interesting.

In the second option you don't hold any records, at any slam. There are always players greater than you. In the first option you totally own one slam, and also won the others a few times. I'd say the first option is definitely better.
That was not put the right way
1 13 2 4
8 1 5 3
6 1 8 5
When you put it this way, the dominance of Rafa at the FO justifies the other two single titles (in 15 years)
Not sure how to justify Nadal's "failures" at the AO and Wimbledon.
Although my least favorite of the 3, I still see Federer's as the most balanced sheet of GS wins.

Winning all slams 5 times each doesn't make you the best in any of them, but you sure would be the GOAT without a discussion.

If he does not win the Aussie Slam next year, I will say no.
The Serb could still win there one last time if that happens but he would not reach double digits in his favorite GS tournament.
:D

Djokovic will win 10 australia opens it looks like. Finals record is staggering 8-0

Roger lost 4 finals in Wimbledon else would have been at 10 there. Frankly Halle and Basel being at 500 level doesn't carry that weight
