Nice arbitrary time line too.

And we’ll just discount the finals against murray, warrinka and del Porto

Ffs.
They should. It is the only way Djokovic will not overtake Fed.

You can pick any timeline you want. Novak has a better head to head against Federer and Nadal.

And now 3-0 to Novak in Wimbledon Finals.

As I said. Since Fed was in his mid to late 30s jock has beat him a lot. As he should.

Take nothing away from Jock. He’s an all time great. So are fed and Nadal though. Trying to downplay their achievements is churlish.

Novak is now 5-0 v Federer, 5-0 v Murray and 3-0 v Nadal in Grand Slam ties since 2014. That is a fairly emphatic clue as to who the real GOAT is. The Fed fans will be hoping injury can rob Djokovic's surge to 20+ Slam titles.
Nalbandian & Moya were around too if I remember correctly, these weren’t the greatest years, thank feck Novak broke that duopoly

We’re very lucky to have seen Fed, Nadal & Djoko’s peak years overlapping for so long

This time last year before Wimbledon jock looked finished. I also wouldn’t completely rule fed out of winning one or two more.

One ace today is the difference between 21 15 and 20 16.


Fine margins.
Margins indeed

Fed will have nightmares over that 2nd match point passing shot for a good while

Some absolutely idiotic comments in the past few pages trying to retrospectively downplay Federer's achievements.

He's played 31 grandslam finals, winning 20.

The titles dried up once Djokavic came along? They did in their bollocks. 3 of his 20 titles came in the last two year alone.

Saying he and Rafa only won against the likes of Hewitt and Roddick is a retarded comment that doesn't make any sense as Nadal is one year older than Djokovic.

Djokovic got extremely fortunate with three tiebreaks. It could just as easily been a.straight sets win for Roger.

And in the six years before that, how many? One. Djokovic won 11 during the same period. Kind of one sided, and now that Novak is injury free again, guess what, Federer's wins have started to dry up again.

Djokovic wasn't extremely fortunate in those three tiebreaks. He had 0 unforced errors compared to Federer's 11. Some players respond better than others in big moments.

I dont know what point you are trying to make m8 tbh.

Rogers's wins have started to dry up? He's 38 in four weeks m8. Stop talking out of your arse.

Mad shite altogether. Roger played exceptional tennis today. As did Djokavic.

I expected a handy Djoka win. It was anything but.

Could have gone either way. Federer missing two championship points on serve is something no one could have predicted.
