Re: Federer

The # 1 player of 2017 would beat Federer handily as well. It is called progress.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

The only way to compare is by comparing achievements.

Actually, my superior intellect tells me that the number one in 2017 will be a clown, playing in an era of clown chokers. This guy wouldnt be able to get a wildcard during Fed's era. Look: if those guys play Roger today, Federer would make them look like kids ...

ROGER FEDERER

COME ON MURRAY!
Andy Murray: USO champion! Roger Federer: LEGEND!

2012: A reminder to all of those who said Murray would never win a GS and that Federer was done winning GS titles!

but people say todays players are weaker, and fed achievements are not as impressive, but in reality most of todays players can beat the player that has are ranked at same spot as they are 20 years ago.

Not to mention that your insight is backed by irrefutable painstaking analysis methods.

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.

I have replied to this argument too many times and it's a Monday night. I will reply tomorrow afternoon if nobody else had done so.

Needless to say it's a total fallacy.

It is all so simple. So many avenues have been opened to me. And all of this time I thought that it was complicated.

I am burning my books folks and joining the church of stebs.
