Re: Do you consider Novak Djokovic as a legend in the game?

No, he hasn't really done anything up to this point that I would consider "legendary". And that's not to say what he has done isn't brilliant, or great, but "legends" leave a much greater impression. I would argue that there have been very few of them up to this point.

Most of these terms people ascribe to players are superfluous.

Re: Do you consider Novak Djokovic as a legend in the game?

He is one of the greats, for sure. Not first-tier, but getting there

1st Tier (GOAT candidates):
Federer
Sampras
Nadal
Borg
Laver

2nd Tier (the Greats):
Connors
Lendl
Agassi
McEnroe

3rd Tier
Wilander
Edberg
Becker
Djokovic

1-2 slams more and he'd be joining the 2nd tier group. But definitely some heady company there. I consider all these people the legends of the game.

Re: Do you consider Novak Djokovic as a legend in the game?

Definitely on my Top 10 GOAT Player's list. Hope Nole will have at least 9 grand slams before he retires and finish ahead of Agassi.

Needs to change his mentality in slam finals though.

9-2 9-4 7-2 Now, who's the GOAT?

You need to win at least 17 grand slams to be a legend.

Re: Do you consider Novak Djokovic as a legend in the game?

One does not have to be the greatest of all time or have the most slams to be a legendary player. Novak's game style, personality and results make him a legend already. His 2 semi wins over Roger at the USO, his 2011 wins, and epic AO wins against Fed, Rafa, Stan and Murray, make him a legend.
