The irony is that if Djokovic does get close to it it will be Federer fans saying it is because the second half of Novak's career was played in a "weak era"

11 pages of people posting who adore 4th place. Luv the quarter-final thread too (8th place). Gloryhunters.

Novak Djokovic nº1!
The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015 * Indian Wells * Miami
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"
Either you get him or you don't!

"It's better to win 2 semis with 2 match points each match, no", says Nadal.

Ah, pardon. It was Nadal that was going for the RU slam last year at RG. No12 didn't want to comply though...

Dimitrov is certainly NOT weaponless - he has his hair and GOAT smile. Just ask Sharapova, she knows.

It's not a streak though.

Blame mono, but it has to be conescutive.

Agree. 18 finals out 19 slams and the other one is a semi is ridiculous. That one and 11 non-clay slams won out of 12 played (2004-2007) are his most impressive achievements I think.

No I didn't. I said the achievement that shows the most consistency at slam level.

But x of xx just doesn't have the same ring to it as something consecutive.

Stop it already, I'm not a fan of Fed, but it's painful to read

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”
