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

I think it will be quite the opposite; when the present top 10 becomes irrelevant, it will be a bit like WTA now, where almost every slam has different winner.

“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.”

Why would you think that? Aside from the fact they have quite a few mental midgets, the 2 big reasons the WTA is so unpredictable are:

1) women can't serve for shit (meaning they can't serve themselves out of trouble when they are playing badly) and
2) the power players hit very flat (meaning they are very hot and cold).

Neither of those things apply to the men's game at any level.

Jordan missed 94 & 95 but you still call it 6 in a raw

Who da fuck are those 2. One sided players - shemxy volleys, strong/ precise and placed serve in second case and medicore forehands and thats basically all! Not a match for an all around GOAT such is Dark Lord Djokauron

Becker had a mediocre forehand. Interesting POV.

Because they are not good enough? There are more things to tennis than just surface. We've yet to see what generations younger than '92 are going to look like.

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

This thread has gone down the drain in less than 15 hrs.

Haters and trolls out in full force. Djoker climbing the latter is causing people to go crazier than junk yard dogs (who let the dogs out?).

Imagine the pandemonium next January when Djoker has surpassed Borg and Lendl? They will try to lynch Nole-Nation out of envy.

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!

Federer would have struggled in previous clay eras simply because the topspin clay court expert has always bothered him on the surface- Nadal causing him trouble wasn't the first time. Guga, Mantilla, even a past it Costa have ground him into the mud.

This Fishnet needs to be vetted or else this crazy house will become a certified asylum. He's an envious/hateful Serbo-phobe and his courage is limited to internet forums.
