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.
What does this even mean? Do you mean a larger variety of people winning slams?

Like Petr Korda at the Australian Open? Or Michael Chang at the French? Or Manuel Orantes at the U.S. open? Or Richard Krajicek at Wimbledon? Or Adriano Pannata at the French? or Yannick Noah at the French? Or Thomas Johansson at the Australian Open? Or Brian Teacher at the Australian Open? Or Andres Gomez at the French? Or Vitas Gerulaitis at the Australian Open? Or Roscoe Tanner at the Australian Open? Or Carlos Moya at the French?

Yes...tennis might be approaching uncharted territory

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.
Yeah, you've been babbling the same bullshit for some time now, no need to repeat yourself to make a point. It's still bullshit.



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
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"

I'll take your wonderfully impartial opinion with the degree of respect it merits.

Edberg had 72 weeks at #1, thats impressive.
No he hasn't and his game isn't more complete. He can't volley his movement towards the net is just pathetic.

Exactly.

He's not a better hardcourt player than them.

No it's not. Nadal's real standing on grass is losing in the first round to nobodies like Rosol and Waske.

One of the 10 most powerful countries in the world with less than 200 years of history. Meanwhile, Serbia has what? More than a thousand years of history and no relevance in the world whatsoever. You should study more, it would do you some good and you would avoid making a fool of yourself.
