Re: Has Djokovic surpassed Stefan Edberg and/or Boris Becker?


So to summarise what I've read here - it appears Djokovic has surpassed (at the very least matched) Becker and Edberg taking into account titles and time at number one.

But there is some doubt as to whether these achievements are as valuable due to posters insisting on comparing eras, conditions, etc - comparisons which always end up as futile exercises in debate.

There is also some doubt as to whether Djokovic can be considered a better, more complete player than either, due to some insisting he lacks skills with his netgame, etc, etc.

Of course, then we have the increasingly juvenile trolling and counter-trolling, descending into name-calling, hair-pulling, bad-repping, and "my country's bigger than your country" nonsense.

Quality stuff.
