Re: Endless Era Debates
many tards always talking about that federer it`s a champion of a weak generation or transitional generation , and that in 2008 when the raise of nadal and djokovic , murray and delpo too , the changes are different , but it`s true that federer peak years were 2004-2007.
this number don`t lie:
Federer: 5 GS, 2 MC, 7 M1000, 9 ATP 500 y 250 , 5 times runner-up in slam finals and one time runner-up in masters cup incluiding one olympic silver medal and doubles gold medal..... this are the number of federer , a guy outside his peak years and beggining his decandece and facing a new and younger generation , numbers very similar to many legends of tennis.
Nadal: 8 GS, 0 MC, 12 M1000, 5 ATP 500 y 250 , 1 gold medal. the king of his generation , superior than federer but a very very big difference....
Djokovic: 5 GS, 2 MC, 11 M1000, 9 ATP 500 y 250 , 1 bronze medal , 4 times runner-un in slam finals.... numbers very very similars by now....the only difference are 4 masters1000 , the best second player of this generation and much more younger has similars archivements than an older and transitional era champion or weak era champion.....
Murray: 1 GS, 0 MC, 8 M1000, 11 ATP 500 y 250 , 1 gold medal. Murray it`s no even close........
delpo too it`s not even close.
federer keeps winning all the years at least 1 grand slam since 2003 , with the only exception of 2011 , but he played one final and two semis winning that year the masters cup again and was the only guy that was capable to fought against nole 2.0 in the slams because the other guys were destroyed by the serbian that year.
