Re: Has Djokovic surpassed Stefan Edberg and/or Boris Becker?

Edberg and Becker were also great players. Two legends. I am not saying that he surpassed them already. But he certainly mached them.
Djokovic will probably stay longer at nr. 1 then both of them.
What really would boost Djokovic is a Roland Garros crown. Because he has than won the career grand slam. Than he is well heading in the direction of players like Nadal or Agassi.
In terms of tennis ability I think he is already on the same class as Agassi. But he is statistically not yet in the same class. Because Agassi won Roland Garros and olympic gold.
Nadal is a bit further away than Agassi, because he won mopre slams. But Djokovic does not need to win as much slams as Nadal to be in the same class. Nadal never won the YEC by example. And his performacnes outside clay courts were very good but not exceptional. Djokovic could also surpass Nadals nr. 1 weeks count.

Re: Has Djokovic surpassed Stefan Edberg and/or Boris Becker?

So many feathers ruffled in this post. I don't know why you guys bother. We all know tennis players circa 1980-1990 had such an astronomical amount of talent that they are simply insurmountable.

Nole
Borna

Re: Has Djokovic surpassed Stefan Edberg and/or Boris Becker?

Much butthurt here whenever someone suggests Djokovic is an inferior player to those mentioned.

Slam count has been degraded as the measure of a player in the last 10 years, thanks to surface homogenisation. People who don't realise that clearly haven't been watching tennis for very long.

Don't flatter yourself buddy as if your'e making any sense. For what it's worth, Sapeod can shake your hand right now for being such a total clown just like him. And that's saying a LOT...

Re: Has Djokovic surpassed Stefan Edberg and/or Boris Becker?

I like Djokovic. I just think his Slam count vastly overrates him.

It's nothing against Djokovic in particular, it's just a result of the change in conditions. Over the next couple of decades I believe we will see more players accumulate more slams, and I think it will come to be an accepted fact that Slam counts don't mean what they used to. Homogenised/non-homogenised surface slam counts will be just as much apples and oranges as Open/Amateur era slam counts are regarded currently.

It's hilarious how everyone jumps on me and calls me a Federer fan just for saying that. God knows why. I am sure Federer's Slam count will be seen in a different light for the same reasons.
