Have you got proof that your claim is a fact?

djokovic>mac

peak hewitt>1984 mac
hewitt destroys mac if they ever meet on any surface

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Djokovic is in no way better than mac. McEnroe was an unbelievably talented player who was undone by his mental stability (or lack thereof).
Djokovic has some way tp go before he can match mac.

Definitely. He is not really close yet. I expect him to get there eventually, though.

Nadal and Federer are clearly past peak (Federer more particularly) and no one would say that Nadal's 2012 clay season was even in his top 3 best clay court seasons. Novak is still at his relative best but we can summarize 2011 as somewhat of a fluke and a bit of the other top players being in surprise and shock of Novak's improvements

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

You said it's a fact that Djokovic must win at least 10 slams to be in the GOAT discussion and I keep asking do you have proof it's a fact. How am I trolling the thread?

Yeah. I replied once and he keeps asking the same thing. What's wrong with him?

You replied, but you did not answer my question. There are only 2 ways you can answer the question:
  • to provide proof for your claim
  • to say you do not have proof for your claim

I quote your reply:

Imagine if I said "You would be have to be out if your mind to not include someone with 9 slams in the GOAT discussion.". Is it proof it's a fact that someone with 9 slams is in the GOAT discussion? Of course not.

So, in your reply you did not provide proof for your claim nor you said that you do not have proof for your claim.

I will keep asking the question until I get answer.
