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.
To take this further, according to the progression of Fishnet's posts, I think he will next suggest that Djokovic should relinquish all his career achievements for Becker and Edberg to divide up simply because he is playing in 2013 and cannot volley.
