    I also said the same thing on different thread, this discussion is useless untill Novak wins 15 or 16.

    People are just bored. Thank goodness the clay season is starting and it should get more interesting again.

    If he wins the French the Grand Slam looks pretty good.

    Yeah, but at the same time look at what happened to Serena last year. Just thinking about the pressure of a career slam...not sure if crowd will embrace the possibility or rally even stronger behind some of his opponents.

    Of course. The task of winning any one major is monumental. You add the pressure of the Grand Slam and it's an incredible feat. Players like Jack Crawford and Lew Hoad won the first three majors but faltered at the end. Although Crawford may have not even known it was a Grand Slam. I'm not sure if the term was around for the four majors at that time in 1933. Crawford led two sets to one over Fred Perry (an awesome player) in the final but lost. Hoad won the first set against Ken Rosewall but lost the next three.

    Precisely. He use to play a role as a Nadal fan under many accounts including NadalAgassi. He hates Federer and couldn't careless about Nole. Since Nadal has declined and doesn't seem to threaten Federer's slam record, he(under mattosgrant) ditches Nadal and jump on Nole's bandwagon.

    But how do you know it's the same poster? Same style or something? It's interesting if he were to ignore your accusations.

    Of course. You only need to see a handle of posts to detect the same style and the way one carries himself, let alone thousands of posts. At least 2 members that I know have agree with me and confronted him that he's NadalAgassi.

    @Polaris is very good at detecting the same users and his list was dated back in 2010. Since then, there are many more accounts created by mattosgrant.

    If tour condition does not change, I think we will have a player who ends with ~20 slams, IMHO.

    I thought you were not allowed to post if you were banned. If this is the case, why don't you report him?

    All of the endless boredom is proportionately related to the Nadal fans in 2010-2013 endlessly claiming their guy would reach 20 slams, or at the very least 18. We all know how that turned out.

    Even with this ridiculously weak era, Djoker cannot stop the hands of time or the mental and physical degeneration that happens to every player.

    The GOAT only won one slam after 30. That should tell you something, but some Djoker fans believe what they want to believe and have no conception of aging or its effects on any player's stats. I think Nole will have an outstanding 2016 and win 2 more slams, probably. But after this year? The decline will be stark and unmistakable, and that's assuming no injury.

    I do not think we have seen the best player of post-2004 homogeneous surface era yet.

    Someone will do 6+ year end #1 and/or ~20 slams under this surface condition, IMHO.

    Must it be the case that the player who does best in his 20s also does better than any other player in his 30s?

    I think you know the answer to that question, really, but here's a comparative statistic:

    Slams won prior to turning 29: Sampras 13-3 Agassi
    Slams won after turning 29: Sampras 1-5 Agassi

    OF COURSE Djokovic will eventually age. But OF COURSE he doesn't have to age at the exact rate that Federer did.

    I do think it's unlikely that Djokovic will reach 18 Slams.

    well, ken rosewall won 25 pro majors and slams. he won 10 of them after 30.
    this was 1960s - 70s.

    current top players ages are getting as old as those of 1960s -70s, right?
